Need a Job?

A charter school in California is hiring,
"We are looking for hard working people who believe in free market capitalism. . . . Multicultural specialists, ultra liberal zealots and college-tainted oppression liberators need not apply."
I wonder if my friend Jesse would get hired or will this article become the subject of his next blog post? Maybe I'll apply when I retire in 13 years. But then again, this is in California; the liberals in the state will almost assuredly find a way to shut it down long before I have a chance to apply.

By the way, have you heard about the Bible study that was shut down in San Diego because officials alleged they were a church and operating without a permit? Amid a flurry of public pressure, the city has backed down.

Control never comes in through the obvious means does it? Zoning laws are one of several mechanism power hungry officials use to stop certain "undesirable" but not necessarily illegal behavior. If they can shutter a home bible study, why not a home school? After all, some homeschool families have more children than attended this bible study. But national standards and testing will be the more likely avenue for controlling freedom-loving homeschoolers.

If you think that's too far fetched, just talk to the owners of the Chrysler dealerships that were closed for having the audacity to be Republicans and not Obamacons! And did anyone ever think that General Motors would become Government Motors? As someone who grew up in the shadow of the GM Technical Center, this week's news is simply unbelievable. Just what does Obama know about running a company, he can't even get his staff to operate a teleprompter correctly. Even Joe Biden knows it's true.

I'm glad my husband left GM eight years ago. Working for Obama would have been too much for him. At the time, I thought he was a little nuts for leaving, but looking at the situation today, he was prophetically brilliant. (The finance guys are the first to know.) And thankfully, he isn't one of the thousands of unemployed Michigan workers in need of a job today.
