The following is not satire. Even though it appears like satire, it really is not!
Excerpt from President-Select Obama's speech on Sunday, December 7, 2008:
"Today, I am announcing a few key parts of my plan. First, we will launch a massive effort to make public buildings more energy-efficient. Our government now pays the highest energy bill in the world. We need to change that. We need to upgrade our federal buildings by replacing old heating systems and installing efficient light bulbs. That won’t just save you, the American taxpayer, billions of dollars each year. It will put people back to work."
Apparently Obama's plan on creating new jobs is to hire a bunch of morons to change the light bulbs in federal buildings. This is not the path towards economic growth. These are make-work jobs. This is taking away wealth from those who create it and spending it on jobs that do not create any new wealth and have no economic value whatsoever.
