Jobs, Jobs, Jobs: All the Rest Is Noise

I'm going to keep this short. For the last year, Republicans in Congress and the media have wasted everyone's time.

There is only one issue: Jobs.

Actually, there's a choice.

If you're a Republican and you believe the best days of America are behind us, keep doing what you're doing.

If you believe the United States still has a future, that the United States is still a going concern, then borrow money with a purpose. Don't borrow money for wars that don't do us any good. And don't throw money at incompetents and cronies like Heckuva job Brownie.

Republicans say the United States is like a business. You're damned right it is. If you want your business to expand, borrow. But borrow with a purpose. Borrow with a plan in mind to create jobs. Jobs in education. Jobs in new energy. Jobs in research. Jobs rebuilding a long neglected infrastructure.

A good point well made. I'll add that it pays to invest not just in things but in people. Because, in the final analysis, the strength, creativity, productivity and all the rest of it America has comes not from things, but from people — not just rich and powerful people, but from the people generally.
