Jobs For Everyone!

Recently, Sen. Jim Bunning (R., Ky.) created a stir in government by objecting to extend jobless benefits. He eventually relented but became a hero to rightwingers who somehow equate jobless benefits with big government bank bailouts and who hate the idea of society supporting those in need.

All of this silly hoopla, made a solution come to mind. If these Bunning-loving rightwingers think no one should get a "free ride", then why not allow EVERYONE to work? Full employment with benefits for EVERYONE! How can they reject that?

Of course, the secret of capitalism that Americans bury and never face is that chronic unemployment is a necessary function for capitalism to work.
