Jesse Jackson, Jr. is just full of great ideas
Oct 15th, 2011 by Unamused
Last time we checked in with Jesse Jackson, Jr. (son of the hideous race-baiting demagogue Jesse Jackson and U.S. representative for Illinois’ 2nd congressional district, which he took over from the black convicted child molester Mel Reynolds), he was calling for the following “basic rights” to be added to the Constitution of the United States:
- “the right to a family to have a decent home. … What would that do for home construction in this nation?”
- “the right to medical care. … How many doctors would such a right create?”
- “the right to a decent education for every American. … How many people would be put to work… providing every student with an iPod and a laptop?”
(The answer to all of these questions is still, of course, you’re an idiot.)
Well, Rep. Jackson is back in the news, with another brilliant idea. From the Daily Caller (Oct. 12): “Jackson, Jr: Obama should ‘declare a national emergency,’ add jobs with ‘extra-constitutional’ action.”
Illinois Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. told The Daily Caller on Wednesday that congressional opposition to the American Jobs Act is akin to the Confederate “states in rebellion.”
Jackson called for full government employment of the 15 million unemployed and said that Obama should “declare a national emergency” and take “extra-constitutional” action “administratively” — without the approval of Congress — to tackle unemployment.
“I hope the president continues to exercise extraordinary constitutional means, based on the history of Congresses that have been in rebellion in the past,” Jackson said. “He’s looking administratively for ways to advance the causes of the American people, because this Congress is completely dysfunctional.”
“On several occasions now, we’ve seen… the Congress is in rebellion, determined, as Abraham Lincoln said, to wreck or ruin at all costs. …”
That’s funny, I guess I must have been asleep during the opening days of the great Congressional rebellion of 2011. Has there been much bloodshed yet? Have the Republicans taken to the streets? Is Capitol Hill aflame? Or have we not progressed to that stage yet?
Oh, well. Just a matter of time, as Rep. Jackson assures me there have already been several occasions when the 112th Congress has proved its determination to wreck or ruin the country at all costs. And he wouldn’t just say that. No one could be that stupid.
Tell us, Congressman Jackson — we’re dying to know — what, pray tell, will the Supreme Emperor For Life, His Royal Highness Barack “Extra-Constitutional” Obama, do to solve the unemployment problem, once democracy is suspended in these United States of America?
“… I believe… in the direct hiring of 15 million unemployed Americans at $40,000 a head, some more than $40,000, some less than $40,000 — that’s a $600 billion stimulus. It could be a five-year program. For another $104 billion, we bailout all of the states … for another $100 billion, we bailout all of the cities,” he said.
At last we have it! Jesse Jackson, Jr.’s bold new comprehensive plan for fixing unemployment: just give everyone a job, already! Come on, guys. GEEZ.
Jackson acknowledged there might be difficulties — no, not the fact that he might as well have suggested we solve world hunger by feeding everybody, or solve the energy crisis by getting more power. It’s the Republicans, who are just so evil and greedy and racist, they won’t do anything to help when there are black people without jobs and it just makes him so angry and WAAAAAAA —
“… Clearly, Republicans are not going to be for it but if the administration can handle administratively what can be done, we should pursue it. And if there are extra-constitutional opportunities that allow the president administratively to put the people to work, he should pursue every single one of them,” Jackson suggested.
The Blaze (Oct. 13) has more: “Jesse Jackson Jr. Calls for Obama to Take ‘Extraordinary Constitutional’ Action on Unemployment.” “File this one under ‘bizarre’,” they suggest, and connect Jackson’s developing dictatorial streak to a recent curious remark by the President: “We’re not going to wait for Congress.”
Back at the Daily Caller, comment section hilarity ensues, as it so often does these days. People really are waking up.
lovesamerica: Just like his father!Despicable,if you don`t get your way cry racist,cry baby,go back to Chicago,they love you there.I am fed up with obama`s disrespect for the Constitution,and dissing Congress,and for so many blacks in Congress who blame everyone but themselves.
sirgareth: EEOC on Steriods?
Seriously, do any of these tokens have an IQ higher than their shoe size?
This is what government education is producing: complete skill-less idiots whose vision for America is to get paid $83,000 a year to show up either stoned or drunk, if at all, to “clean up” the sh!t they just tossed out the window the night before.
This is what leftism can do to a young black buck that’s capable of vacuuming cars at the car wash for $7.50 an hour plus tips if he actually shows up sober,
Of course Jesse’s kid doesn’t have the qualifications for this kind of work so in this case maybe should keep his job working for the government at $180,000 where no responsibility or skills are required.
The anti-racists appear eventually, of course.
One Twenty: So you white idiots (who have many friends and family who NEED jobs) are AGAINST President Obama because he wants to GIVE you jobs?
Are you THAT damn racist against blacks that you won;t accept a JOB when you NEED one?
No wonder all white people’s shit is going down the drain. You’re all crooked AND stupid. lol
Hi there, stupid white-hating black person! Let me explain something to you about jobs.
You see, the government can’t just create meaningful work, or the motivation to do it, out of thin air. I know that you, like most black people, have an unshakable faith in the limitless power of government (which may be part of the reason why the government treats you like children), but the truth is, the government is stupid (see: Jesse Jackson, Jr.). Plus, the salaries for what jobs they do manage to slap together — and the bill for the wasteful spending associated with every government program ever — are paid for by the taxes of people (mostly white) working actual jobs. Furthermore — oh, you’ve gone and joined a flash mob.
Well, I sure hope you don’t get shot or something.
