We are undergoing a test as a nation.
Just days after our 244th birthday, we face real challenges from our streets up. From what we believe our government — at every level — needs to provide, to our part in what might be considered a free-for-all with our culture and economy at stake.
Consider that the July 4 news shows found the economy on the lips of nearly every talking head. Bottom line: Our nation’s bottom line looks to be heading south again.
Despite the Obama administration and the Democrat-led Congress’s best effort to print as much money as possible and shotgun it from sea to shining sea, we’re getting nothing but more debt and higher taxes.
Just days before our national birthday party, the Department of Labor’s jobs report for June was worse than the pitiful summer movie “MacGruber.” Trust me. It was awful. Just like the job numbers.
It would seem any job growth over the past year was spurred by hiring for the Census. Normally, I would offer some pithy, quasi-cynical aside about the kind of leadership we have in Washington that would travel throughout the nation praising our recovery based in large part on thousands of temporary Census worker jobs. But I’m not going to do that.
