The Know Nothing Generation

by Mr Juggles

One common criticism of attempts to redistribute financial income — for purposes of fairness — is that financial income is generally earned, after some fashion. Is the government also going to redistribute good looks, talents like a great voice or acting ability, or height (from the tall to the short)? I think I read a research paper of some kind where this worked out fantastically well. Depends on your definition of “well” I suppose.

I am glad to see that the current administration has proven faithful to its philosophy and is now distributing jobs without regards to qualification or merit.

The 31-Year-Old in Charge of Dismantling GM

It is not every 31-year-old who, in a first government job, finds himself dismantling General Motors and rewriting the rules of American capitalism.

But that, in short, is the job description for Brian Deese, a not-quite graduate of Yale Law School who had never set foot in an automotive assembly plant until he took on his nearly unseen role in remaking the American automotive industry.

Nor, for that matter, had he given much thought to what ailed an industry that had been in decline ever since he was born.

Recommendation: It appears increasingly likely that a) most jobs will be controlled by Washington in the future and that b) these jobs will be distributed on a semi-random basis, with little regard to qualifications or merit. This provides an excellent opportunity for anyone wishing to find employment, change careers, or remake an American industry according to their hastily conceived notions. If you fall into one of these categories, we suggest you immediately contribute a modest sum to the Democratic Party of Hope, move to Washington, and wait. Develop a special trait such as a “beard that appears and disappears” that will allow you to catch the eye of a patron. Then re-design the industry of your choice. I’ve always had a taste for Plastics, myself. Or maybe Cable.
