Why can't the geniuses in power tell the difference between a temporary gov't job and a permanent private one?

41,000 jobs added in the private sector and 400,000 wealth-sapping Census jobs and these bozos are thrilled. Absolutely pathetic.

Government doesn't create jobs. All it does is confiscate wealth. To create jobs it needs to get out of the way and let people pursue their own interests. It's troubling that people think government plays some kind of role in the *free* market.

These are for people taking information. The permanent jobs are and have been filled by bureaucrats at the Dept. of Commerce.

Someone told that the government inflated the number of government jobs to 400,000 by firing the census workers after training and then rehiring them. I haven't been able to find evidence for it, but with this government, would it really shock you if it were true?

Nothing pathetic at all. People are glad to get those Census jobs even if they are temporary. There has been 6 straight months of job increases. I guess you missed that, before you started labeling people as idiots. If you don't know that these "geniuses in power", know the truth on jobs, you are the the one... More

those who can understand-will; those who are still enamored with a dream, won't, they will defend this lack of good judgment to the end. They can not believe they have been hood winked by a mirage, smoke in the air that has no substance... More
