Bob Cesca: The Republicans Continue to Wage War Against Government Workers

Adding to the syllabus of conservative contradictions this week, both Christie and Scott attacked government employees and proudly announced the firings of tens of thousands of workers even though they themselves are government employees. Given the Republican talent for selling nonsense by the gross, the Republicans have managed to successfully define government workers as nothing more than faceless automatons -- robotic parasites without families, mortgages and futures.

At the Reagan Library this week, Christie applauded President Reagan's firing of air traffic controllers. Mitt Romney doesn't believe that government workers are contributors to the "real economy." And while the Republicans attack the president for increasing the size of government, 500,000 government workers have lost their jobs since the president's inauguration.

The centerpiece of the statement is his proud assertion that "government doesn't create jobs." Who, then, is the "we've" inside the clause "we've generated 87,200 private sector jobs?" If he's referring to his administration ("we" as in "Governor Scott et al"), then he's referring to the government -- the executive branch of the Florida state government, to be exact -- and if the government "generated" 87,200 private sector jobs, then government does, in fact, create jobs.

Rick Scott continued by patting himself on the back for firing 15,000 Floridians. Despite his attempts to dehumanize the people who were fired, those government "jobs" were occupied by real-life human beings: Florida residents who, due to their lost jobs, might not be able to pay their rents and mortgages in an already crippled Florida housing market. Scott was talking about Florida residents who, because of Scott's policies, have become a drain on the state and national economies as they line up for unemployment checks and watch their credit card balances max out. Good job, governor. Tell me again how the Republicans will fix the economy.

At this rate when I retire from the military I mind as well retire and stay in Germany because there will be nothing worth coming home to. And people will continue to vote for such morons.

When the private sector stops outsourcing its jobs to India and China and brings back real jobs to America, complete with living wages, guaranteed pensions and affordable health coverage, then maybe we can talk about eliminating some redundant jobs in government. The private sector can certainly afford to do this now more than ever as they sit on nearly $2 trillion in cash assets, according to the Wall Street Journal, which they're refusing to spend on new jobs. Fact: corporate cash assets are at their highest level since 1959 while unemployment remains high and middle class wages remain stagnant. The Republicans continue to tell us with a straight face that tax cuts will encourage businesses to create jobs, even though historically high cash assets aren't being spent on anything much less jobs.

And when the unemployment rate is hovering at 9.2 percent nationwide, 10.7 percent in Florida and 9.4 percent in New Jersey, I'm not sure these guys ought to be ballyhooing how they've successfully added to the unemployment rolls. Rick Scott and the Republicans have fired thousands of Americans from secure jobs and forced them into lower-paying menial gigs for lower wages. How is this helping?

The right wing asshats have nothing to say this is all right on point!

Government workers = useless fucks

Ditto for Unions.
Say that when you house burns down, or when the road gets tore up and unable to drive on, or when you have a burglar at the house and the cops don't come or when a mass murderer kills people across state lines. Better yet


By the way, I'd like to see the Republicans tell the 1.4 million government workers employed by the U.S. Armed Forces how they don't have real jobs. Let's see them run for office on a "soldiers should get real jobs" platform. They'd most certainly end up joining all of those former government workers in the ranks of the unemployed.

Apparently, the left feels that the government has no responsibility for stewardship of OUR money.

Or, at least the morons on the left.

Indeed. Remember, the government Can Do No Wrong -- at least while there's a Dem in the White House.
This has nothing to do with the firing of govt workers dumbass.

Failo - members of the Armed Forces DO NOT and HAVE NEVER considered themselves "government employees." They actually work for a fucking living, vs. some GS-9 shitbird that sits at his desk all day surfing porno-sites at some Federal agency, like Swallow.

TFF! The moron bolds more of the text than not, thinking, apparently, that he is actually adding emphasis to that text.

Just a funny observation.

This is a cool trend. Conservatives cheering on the weaking of Unions, and calling Teachers, Cops, Firemen, Troops and so many other people that work for the government; leeches and parasites.

So next election these are those not voting for a Republican:

-Teachers.
-Cops.
-Firemen.
-Policemen.
-Troops. (Well they might still get some of those..)
-Hispanics.
-Blacks.
-Moderates.
-Democrats.
-Liberals.
-Muslims.
-Retired folks.
-Postal workers.
-DMV workers.
-Court Officers.
-Metronorth workers.
-MTA workers.
-Janitors.
-Government IT professionals.
-Emergency Workers.
-Goverment Services Adminstration Workers.
-TSA workers.
-Most Jewish Folks (Especially if Perry runs).
-New Yorkers (Especially if Perry runs).

And that's just the short list.

What's left?

White Evangelists. That's about it. And you lose them if Mitt Romney runs.
