Addendum To Mulvaney Post!!! I Never Picked Cotton!

So, I thought I’d add something else to the previous post, but, it sort of belongs on it’s own. 

For those not familiar, “I Never Picked Cotton” was a song title of a Roy Clark song, (Johnny Cash also recorded it).  

Yes, the song is presumed to be fictional, but, it was because it was so true of so many people which made the song popular.  Yes, there are some miscreants who do refuse to do some work in this nation.  But, by in large, most Americans will do whatever it takes. 

“I never picked cotton, but, my mother, brother, and sister did, and my daddy died young, working in a coal mine.”

Only, the laws, rules and regulations will put the coal mines out of business ….. unless they can import some really cheap labor to offset the onerous costs of doing business with coal …. right?  For the people?  Of the people?  By the people?  Naw ….. just import different people!!!  Right, congressman Mulvaney?  Jackass!

At any rate, and without further ado ….  I never picked cotton.

    The list of ‘Jobs Americans Won’t Do’ should be the same list from which one chooses to perform prior to each week’s unemployment check.

      Indeed! But, that’s why some employers need “migrant” workers. They don’t pay unemployment insurance. Or, they pay the minimum, because the workers never get to collect unemployment. As a worker, I’m not a big fan of the unemployment laws we have. But, as an American, I’m obliged to abide by, and work within, the laws jackasses like Mulvaney pass.

    The problem is Obama is impoverishing some of the most depressed areas of the country. ANd he does not care.
