Private or Public

When a liberal reads the first paragraph of this press release (opinion piece?) like this:

On June 20, the state Economic and Revenue Forecast Council released its quarterly budget outlook. Tax collections remain flat, but what was more telling is that private-sector job creation is slow, and the outlook is that job growth will continue to slow down.

The thought is how can we speed up job growth. And you’d think that a state representative who is doing this opinion piece (press release?) would think the same. But no, the GOP position is actually something else. Private sector job growth is vitally important. But it’s only part of the picture. They say they’re focused on jobs, jobs, jobs, but ignoring (at best) public sector jobs.

    Fourth of July fireworks displays used to be an American public tradition. But now that there’s no public money all we have left is private fireworks displays to entertain rich people who don’t pay taxes.

    “About $217 million will be spent on an estimated 14,000 Fourth of July fireworks displays across America …. But 70 percent of those shows will be at private or corporate events in premier locations like the Hamptons, Malibu, Lake Tahoe and the Jersey Shore ….”

    re 1-3-4 — This McKenna stuff seems to be drawing your fire in a fast and furious way.

    That ‘who run bartertown’? moniker seems like a racial slam against Caribbean people of color.

    Example — What if the moniker were “Who’s Running Hymietown”?

    Bartertown’s a racist.

    @4,

    His proposed solution to the jobs crisis was for me to personally solve it by starting a business.

    Ohhhh, nice try Carl, but TEH FAYLE!

    You talk a lot of shit, but do nothing to solve any problems, other than suggesting that we hire a shit load of public employees with no fucking plan to pay for it.

    you are a fool – and have no god damned clue about anything.

    Im doing my part – what the fuck are you doing? and going to some dumb fucked socialist convention on the east coast doesnt count for dog shit.

    you are another blood sucker, like YLBigot, who does nothing to contribute.

    re 11: They’ll pay for themselves. The money that you pay public employees has a multiplier effect in the goods and services those workers buy.

    Everyone knows that.

    “An initial change in aggregate demand can have a much greater final impact on the level of equilibrium national income. This is commonly known as the multiplier effect and it comes about because injections of demand into the circular flow of income stimulate further rounds of spending – in other words “one person’s spending is another’s income” – and this can lead to a much bigger effect on equilibrium output and employment.”
