Obama’s green jobs fantasy land

I listened to Obama’s economic statement today, and the only thing I could think of is Rodney Dangerfield, in Back to School when he is in the Business 101 class with his son, and when the professor is talking about making widgets, he screams, “Try Fantasyland”.  That was the only thing that came to my mind with his statement.

The Fox news link is here:

He states that we are going to throw 2 someodd Billion toward green jobs and companies so that they can lead the way so that America can lead the way since we are behind China and Japan on making batteries and solar panels.  My thought on this is that if the market was there for this, wouldn’t people have jumped on this without the government throwning money in their direction.

How about this for an idea of building our economy, shut up and get out of the way. Stop making America the highest or second highest corporate tax rate in the world, and make it worth a company’s while to invest and employ in the U.S.  How about stopping the onerous regulations that stop people from investing in businesses and hiring people.  How about shelving this B.S healthcare reform knowing that it is going to make it less attractive to hire in the U.S.

I would wish just once during Obama’s tenure as president, and the Democrats next 10 months of rule, they extrictate their heads from the behinds and actually come up with legislation that helps us all instead of hurting a majority of us for the benefit of an elite few.
