Americans, only a world-socialist or a world-class dummy could engineer a national defense blunder and call it “a jobs engine”.
So what will we call Dick Turban [Durban] S(IL) and Governor Pat Quinn S(IL)? They’re rubbing their hands together with pre-Christmas [they’d say ‘Holiday’] glee at the thought of the Guantanamo terrorists being moved to the not-ready-for-prime-time Thompson Correctional Facility.
Folks, government jobs are not economy-building jobs! They’re quite necessary [some of them] but they add no wealth to the nation. They are rather like the barnacles on the side of a ship, multiplying over time, adding weight, slowing the ship and weakening the hull, and eventually needing to be scraped off in drydock. Only a wealth-redistributing socialist could be gleeful about adding hundreds of government jobs to the national payroll.
But this move fits the left-wing’s agenda of claiming that there “is no terrorist threat”; that “the war on terrorism” was a Bush lie, and was really all about oil. This allows them to further blur the lines between warfare and law enforcement. Somehow I suspect that if this scheme goes through the guards will be federal employees – unionized of course – and hired with scrupulous attention to AA/EEO and complete racial, ethnic, and religious diversity. I expect the next Major Nidal Malik Hasan to apply. Hell, won’t we need radicalized Islamist shrinks to tend to the needs of two hundred homicidal / suicidal Islamist murderers?
“Jobs engine” my donkey! This is the Obama Cartel going soft on terrorism from the get-go! I almost expect Obama to visit someday, and bow to each cell door. ONLY the ACLU and al Qaeda can be happy about this. I’m betting the ACLU will open a field office there. What a money-maker! Hey Liberals, – are you liking this “Change”? Hope you don’t choke on it.
