“You Deserve It” Part 243

John, born in 1973, decided to get married, buy a house, and start a family in 2003.

James, born in 1976, decided to get married, buy a house, and start a family in 2006.

In 2009, both John and James were laid off. Both were offered jobs in another state.

John sold his house at break-even and moved.

If James wanted to sell his house and move, he would have to make an out-of-pocket payment of $70,000.

John is obviously an upstanding, hard-working, reliable citizen who deserves his success.

James is obviously a shiftless, lazy, irresponsible good-for-nothing who deserves to suffer.

    Me, born in 1973, hit the labor market at the dawn of the Clinton years and decided to work in construction.

    My nephew, born in 1993, is hitting the labor market after the Bush years and has also decided to work in construction.

    I faced a labor market with an unemployment rate that went down to 4% and could have literally worked 7 days a week in a highly paid union job.

    My nephew is facing a 16-19 year old unemployment rate of 25% (http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.t01.htm) and can only occasionally find low paying under-the-table jobs.

    In my day Republicans said all the prosperity was due to the Reagan tax cuts and was happening despite Clinton’s ultra-liberal activism and that the small rise in taxes would destroy it all.

    Now Republicans are screaming about the threat of inflation in the face of creeping deflation and claiming that the recession only keeps going on because of Obama’s ultra-liberal activism (http://www.cfr.org/content/publications/attachments/infi_1277_Rev6.pdf).

    I was obviously lucky that all the Republicans could find to pin on Clinton was lying about a blow job.

    My nephew gets to watch as Obama caves in to each and every Republican demand no matter how obviously stupid they are.
