New Gitmo A “Jobs Engine”?

Posted November 16th, 2009 by Iron Mike

Americans,  only a world-socialist or a world-class dummy could engineer a national defense blunder and call it “a jobs engine”.

"Gitmo" in Illinois?

"Gitmo" in Illinois?

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.
