Why a Devestated National Economy Is Good for You

I knew it would be only a matter of time before our glorious national leaders told us that, even as Global Warming makes the weather cold, and wet wood burns the best, so their war against prosperity would enrich us.

So who cares that the Congressional Budget Office predicts that Obamacare will destroy 2.5 million full-time jobs in America? Why, it’s a blessing in disguise! Ask any leading Democrat.

Being out of work, the Senate Majority Leader tells us, is just a form of “free agency.” You know–like in baseball, when you’re a free agent, you get boxcar-loads of money to join up with a team.

Being out of work, the former Speaker of the House tells us, will give you time to “write poetry.”

And best of all–and they’re all saying this, all of a sudden–unemployment is so much better than “job-lock.”

Job-lock? What’s that?

Well, it’s having to work for a living, and not being able to stop and lie around on the couch and watch TV. Obamacare will free 2.5 million able-bodied Americans from job-lock. Or, as that other dimwit said a couple of weeks ago, it’s long past time we made “participation in the work-force truly voluntary.”

As long as you don’t need money, why work? It’s just not fair, that you should need money to live! Free stuff for all! Free living quarters, free food, free phones, free video games! Lemme at that goose-quill pen–I feel a major poem coming on!

All my stuff, it should be free:/ I oughta be paid for bein’ me.

Why should I have to go out and work,/ When I can just live off some other jerk?

How many of you out there are willing to keep on working so that I can keep on writing poetry?

Fight job-lock! Get unemployed today!
