LOGICAL 'Social' Engineering
The commie-libs among us have long depended upon social engineering to both placate and increase their voter base. The 'modern era' of commie-lib social engineering is generally associated with the "Slick-Willie" presidency; largely with their sham of reducing the welfareRAT rolls. The Clinton Administration along with the Newt Gingrich-led House, did little more than move the 'RATs from the welfare rolls to the SSI rolls-with the goal of the continuation and growth of 'dependency-class' Americans.
Now, fast-forward to the "Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist" Regime. The regime's notion of 'social engineering' vastly outpaces the "Slick-Willie" concept. Not only does the "Clown" both continue and inhance the numbers of individual recipients of monetary benefits, he extends it to unsustainable--quasi-experimental--solar and wind energy production as well as payoffs to several of his 'favorite' politicians: Anyone remember the vote-buying payoffs involved with owe-bamaKare?!? Senator Mary Landreau ring a bell?!?
With "Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist" building on his successes (of national destruction) by gutting the Defense Department, here comes my suggestion of LOGICAL social engineering:
With the lagging NON-recovery; with the problematic U-3 unemployment rate in the 8.5% range; with the more accurate, actual U-6 unemployment rate in the 23% range, actually consider the short, mid and long term effects of military "down-sizing" (reduction-in-force [RIF]) relative to the unemployment rates. Currently, approximately 80,000 military "souls" have--or are scheduled to have--their asses 'kicked-to-the-curb,' both the decision for the RIF as well as the numbers involved in said RIF should be relative to the current and projected U-3 and U-6 unemployment rates. A U-3 rate of 4.5% is considered full employment. Have the RIF figures be based on national full employment, example: if the fascists want to dis-employ 100,000 military "souls," they should do so at 4.5% unemployment; 85,000 at 5.0%; 70,000 at 5.5%; 55,000 at 6.0%; 40,000 at 6.5%; 25,000 at 7.0%; 10,000 at 7.5% and ZERO at 8.0% and above!!
Not only have the vast majority of said "souls" put their lives-on-the-line on a minute-by-minute basis, they are subjected to long tours of duty away from family and friends; subjected to international moves with minimal notice! Given these military "souls" do the work "most Americans won't do," do they deserve to be tossed out of a chosen career 'on their proverbial asses?!?' I think NOT!!!
