Tom Delay: People Are Unemployed Because They Want To Be
Perhaps Mr. Delay has forgotten that he and his cronies have played a major part in the financial disaster unfolding that is impacting mostly, Oh, yeah the poor and the middle class but they really do not count in Mr. Delay’s world do they.
"You know," Delay said, "there is an argument to be made that these extensions, the unemployment benefits keeps people from going and finding jobs. In fact there are some studies that have been done that show people stay on unemployment compensation and they don't look for a job until two or three weeks before they know the benefits are going to run out.
I am infuriated that Mr. Delay feels that his virtue is such that he can cast aspersions on the character of millions of Americans when he has clearly been found to lack any trace of character or moral fiber himself.
Texas courts charged Delay with criminal violations of state campaign finance laws and money laundering.
Charges which he has yet to face because the good ole boy network is alive and well and the rule is here in America is that if you have enough money power and influence, you can be convicted of nothing.
Mr. Delay speaks the thoughts that many on both sides of the isle in Washington believe, there is no thought given or blame taken for the myriad mistakes that have been made dating back to the Nixon administration, and continued president by president congress by congress for the last forty years. The incompetence greed and absolute disregard for the country the people and the ideals on which this nation was founded. We have in Mr. Delay's eye become a nation without the capacity to work out of choice.
The bill for all of these mistakes is coming due now, and it is we the American people who will pay the price.
The rich the powerful will as they normally have, bide their time isolated from the very chaos that the greed and manipulation, of markets, politics, and the U.S. economy have caused.
Mr. Delay is representative of his kind in that he blames the very people that he has wronged.
At this point how I can really be angry at a few hundred thousand malingers out of 24 million unemployed. A wise man once told me that attitude reflects leadership and that, any organization over time comes to be a reflection of its management.
