And in the ‘you’ve got to be kidding’ department comes this from our Dept. of Labor.
Migrant and seasonal farmworkers experiencing chronic unemployment and underemployment will soon have opportunities to upgrade skills or prepare for new occupations.
By definition, if you’re a “seasonal” “farmworker,” doesn’t that make you gainfully employed? You know, the lie that they are doing work that Americans don’t want to do. What’s next, a living subsidy support program (with cell phone) for the non-growing season? After all, why should ‘migrant’ workers have to migrate somewhere where crops are growing? Targeting migrant workers, an entire class of people coming under the microscope in the big illegal immigration debate, looks an awful lot like $9.6 million dollars of street money, courtesy of the 50 percent that pay taxes, for some who aren’t even citizens.
From the DOL’s press release . . .
$9.6 million is available for grants to operate the program in central California, Hawaii, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey and Puerto Rico.
I know there are 8.5 million Americans who are out of work or underemployed. How about we concentrate our efforts there, growing the economy so they can get their job back?

Just thought of a new role playing game. Let’s call it ‘Blood On Their Hands.’ It was inspired by news of the cop cop-killer Chris Dorner in Los Angeles and my recollection of the behavior of folks like Media Matters, Think Progress, ABC’s Brian Ross and other democrats after other shootings. How they said Sarah Palin had blood on her hands for Gabby Giffords being shot by a Nazi nutjob in Arizona. And if they couldn’t connect them to right-wingers, they made it up, just so they could complete the Left’s narrative that conservatives and other right-wingers are all blood thirsty killers, inspired by the party leaders.
Well have I got news for them. This Chris Dorner nutjob is a big gun control advocate (go figure), is a big fan of Obama, Dianne Feinstein, Mia Farrow, Hillary Clinton, Piers Morgan and Anderson Cooper.
More from his manifesto . . .
Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad Obrien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera, Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper, keep up the great work and follow Cronkite’s lead.
Amazingly, I haven’t heard any of them being accused of having blood on their hands. I’m so disappointed with the media for not making the obvious connection. Let alone not mentioning that the guy is a big leftest and Obama supporter. Not a word.
