After two years and two months of being one of Obama’s unexpected, I am now a member of the employed. I’ve been working since December 2nd but I wanted to wait to pass along the news until I got my first paycheck. I guess that kind of makes it real. I’m sure some of you have noticed I’m not around much. Or, maybe you haven’t!
It’s strange to be working again after 2 years of looking for work. Which is a job in itself. For my entire life, I had never been out of a job for longer than 3-4 weeks. My wife once told me when a previous employer went out of business, “I don’t worry about you being out of work because you always find a job so quickly.” That time, I found a job just 3 weeks later.
But this time it’s different. We have a brain-dead, knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing socialist in the White House who couldn’t care about the unemployed. I remember when Ronald Reagan was president. He CARED that people were unemployed. So much so that he went to the mat for the unemployed and got taxes cut, even though both houses of congress were run by the democrats. When those tax cuts took effect, the unemployment rate dropped. But Obama cares so little about the working people who are the backbone of this country. And while I’m not sure who the brain is, I sure know who the rectum is.
As for my job, it’s very good and I do like it. I am learning a lot about the medical profession and medical terminology. And even though it is not in my chosen career path, it is a solid job that has allowed me to get my foot in the door. However, in ObamaLand you no longer have a career — you have a job. And this one is $20 an hour less than what I was making. But it’s in town so my commute is minutes instead of hours and the team I work with makes the job worth so much more. For me, the glass is half FULL!
But, there is one thing I will continue to do. If I am ever polled again by a national polling agency, I am unemployed but still looking for work. That way, the unemployment rate cannot go down because of me. As a matter of fact, it should go up. If Obama is cooking the employment books, then I can lie about my status as unemployed. And all of you should as well. Never give Obama that satisfaction. He is doing nothing to help the unemployed. We should do nothing to help him.
