America Was Built On Hard Work

Democrat Congressman Keith Ellison has a new twist on the reduced hours people are suffering as a result of the poor economy and the mandates of Obamacare. Ellison thinks that reduced hours are a good thing and that this will allow families to spend more time together and cook meals at home rather than getting take out.

“We are going to have parents being able to come home, working reasonable hours. People are going to be able to retire. People might actually be able to cook dinner rather than have to order out and get some takeout.”

Not content with putting lipstick on this pig (yes Ellison is a Muslim) he went on to say that Americans work more than other industrialized nations as a way to justify the loss of working hours.

“If you look at international comparisons country by country, Americans work way more that the average of industrialized countries around the world.”

Ellison seems to think that having your hours cut and getting a smaller paycheck is a great opportunity. He believes that we work too much and I can see why he would think that. As a member of Congress he works about three days a week so a real job escapes him.

America was founded on hard work and 40 hours a week is not too much of a burden in order to make a decent living. Many Americans have worked twice that for a long time to get ahead.

America was built by people who worked hard from sun up until sun down and they did so in hopes of providing a better life for their children and grandchildren.

But people like Ellison think losing hours and pay is a gift from Obama to allow folks to eat at home instead of getting take out food.

As if anyone can afford that in the Obama economy…

He, like many in Congress, is out of touch and it is up to us to help him have more time with his family next November. We can do that by voting him (and all the others) OUT.


Cave canem!

    The biggest problem I see about our “shrinking middle class” is the loss of the blue collar trades- the loss actually going to illegal aliens.
    Not every American child is smart enough to be a software designer, or win on American Idol- some will have to gravitate to manual labor of some type.
    It used to be that the trades,(carpentry, plumbing, A/C, and electrical work) were respected jobs- now, largely because of the illegal influx, most Americans are getting out of the trades- also, a LOT of these young people can’t abide hard work, and so these illegals get the work- but they do not really know how to do some of the more complicated work needed, so the trades get a reputation for work NOT completed.
    Tragic, really- as someone who was a carpenter for forty years, I saw this repeatedly.
