Caped Crusaders – Government in a Nutshell
…Or, really, a cape.
So…(long, exasperated pause)…this is what happens when you get handed millions of dollars of strangers’ money and are told to go find somewhere spend it, lest you give lie to the ridiculous waste that is your department’s operating budget.
Ah, bureaucrats…is there any idea too dumb for them?
Florida officials are investigating an unemployment agency that spent public money to give 6,000 superhero capes to the jobless.
Workforce Central Florida spent more than $14,000 on the red capes as part of its “Cape-A-Bility Challenge” public relations campaign. The campaign featured a cartoon character, “Dr. Evil Unemployment,” who needs to be vanquished.
How sad is it that in the collective mind of the ruling class, spending tax dollars on cartoon characters and capes for the jobless is a way to battle unemployment…as opposed to, say, cutting taxes so businesses can keep more of their money…which they can then reinvest in their businesses…thereby growing their businesses…thereby creating, you know, jobs.
Modern liberalism (for lack of a better term) is truly a mental disorder, and a horrible one at that. It binds the afflicted to a lifetime of perpetual infantilism, all the while convincing them that it is exactly their deplorable behavior, their severely stunted maturation, and their suckling at the teat (or lower!) of the ruling class that renders them morally and intellectually superior to their involuntary benefactors…benefactors who suffer a fusillade of insults and smears any time they have the temerity to suggest that these narcissistic leeches grow up, act like adults, and earn their keep.
Yet it is precisely these sad, afflicted, overgrown children who are running our country.
And rather poorly, I might add.
Maybe they just need better capes…
