Explosive Employment!

Greetings, Maggots!  You are about to leave your civilian life of high unemployment and begin a new life of Explosive Employment!

Cuts to military and defense contracting budgets mean fewer jobs, so it naturally follows that increasing those budgets means more jobs!

Prepare yourself for a two trillion dollar explosion!

Remember!  Government spending on sissy civilian jobs programs does not work and increases the deficit!

Government spending on military and defense contracting budgets works!  And leads to jobs!

You will be employed as builders or operators of things that shoot, blow up, fire, zap, transport, fly, float or flatten!

You will be deployed to places like Iran, Syria, Somalia, Whateveristan and wherever there are jobs to be had!

If bombing Iran means jobs, invading and occupying Iran means more jobs!

I repeat!  Civilian stimulus does not work!  

Building infrastructure at home weakens our ability to bomb and rebuild infrastructure abroad!

Do not stand in the way of Explosive Employment!

Why grow the deficit with a government job at an inner city school when you can employ and deploy the entire inner city!

Explosive Employment:  because war is job one!  Now get out there and explode!!!!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
