Our Governor is a dangerous economic illiterate

Russ Steele

Governor Brown last Tuesday called for a “war on unemployment.” He actually said:

Find the jobs, and do so by investing in the renewable energy, the efficiency technologies, the innovative transportation, the land-use policies….

Just as President Roosevelt put people to work during the Great Depression building dams, roads, schools and other public facilities, we can now put millions of people to work preparing our communities for the effects of climate change and building renewable energy projects.

All this took place just a few days after Solyndra went belly up and Al Gore crashed and burned in one last attempt to convince the world that human caused global warming was a real threat. The only threat to humans are government idiots that believe this junk science.

Governor Brown has never held a private sector job. He has been a politician all his life.

  • Member Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees
  • Secretary of State
  • Governor
  • Mayor of Oakland
  • Attorney General
  • Governor Again

He has never held a job that created economic wealth. His only jobs were as a consumer of taxpayers wealth. He actually believes by taking billions from families and business in new taxes, and then giving it to government it will create wealth producing jobs. Job which will create wealth that can then be taxed by the state. Any economic literate person can see the problem here, why is it that our Governor refuses to acknowledge his Moonbeam economics are flawed? Real jobs are produced by small businesses, but he has taxed and regulated them out of business or out of the state.

  1. A executive position should surround itself and be advised by those that possess the know-how the executive wants to implement. What I have seen with the liberals when they are in charge is they surround themselves with ideologues of their political bent rather than experts in the fields. This has been a dangerous and ineffective way to drive the bus. Our state is the leading edge of why the country is in the crapper right now. All those bills Moonbeam is considering right now are not solutions to anything that will help the citizens. The bills are more regulations and rules to control our behavior. We need a moratorium of Moonbeams and the State leftislature’s good intentions for a couple of years. We need a breather.

    Moonbeam has no fear, for as he gazes across the California landscape, he sees nothing but millions of adoring upturned faces and the roar of ‘More!!’

    You know what Russ…I cannot explain to you the feeling that I had the first time I signed payroll checks for my employees. I was overcome that I was providing the job and income for someone to buy food for their family, to make their car payment, or pay a mortgage. I was really glad to be participating in the American economy as a provider to those people…it was a very cool moment. It was at that moment I was also more appreciative of others who had provided the same for me in the past.

    If the government gets out of the way, Americans will provide for themselves and for others. It is that engine of capitalism upon which this great nation was founded and prospers.
