While business on Main Street, Your City, are dying on the vine, our proud leaders in Salem not only refuse to live up to their responsibilities to reduce the drain on the private sector by government regulation and taxation, their new impulse to create a new, green tomorrow is unbridled.
Dave Hunt, current House Speaker and holder of a Bachelor's in Poli-Sci from Columbia and no private work experience, creates "green jobs" by passing a law " that includes a coordinated strategy to better match training opportunities for low-income Oregonians with high-wage, high-demand professions in the green economy."
Uh, what jobs are these?
Manufacturing jobs? Transportation jobs? Is there a new "green" retail sector that none of us have yet to hear from?
We have a 12-point-four percent rate of unemployment. Would it be "green" to work in the woods?
As more and more small businesses teeter on the edge of existence, Dave Hunt--the whiz with a degree from Columbia and no job experience--pushes industry, labour and education "stakeholders" to:
"Identify emerging technologies and innovations likely to advance the green economy;
"Develop a plan designed to leverage and align existing public programs to train and support green-collar workers; and in conjunction with the Oregon Economic and Community
"Formulate and recommend new or expanded financial incentives or other strategies designed to recruit, retain or expand green economy businesses."
And what, again, is this "green" economy?
The Gift Howard Dean Is - It's a gift that just keeps on giving. Oo-yeah! What is it that compels Democrats from taking responsibilty for their actions? Their inactions?
