More Stimulus Waste: Green Jobs Training Program Fails to Create Jobs

Just over three years ago, Vice-President Joe Biden announced a new $500 million stimulus funded jobs training program.  The new initiative would be aimed at training unemployed workers to compete and attain employment in the administration's coveted field of 'green jobs'.  At the time of his announcement, Biden stated that the program would create "real live jobs for a real live future".

Drilling For Jobs? Yes We Can!

In a weekly address to the nation back in March, President Obama addressed the crippling effect of gas prices on the economy, citing the creation of 'thousands' of American jobs through his renewable energy plan, and stating simply, "we can't drill our way out of this problem."

Environmental Activists - Hugging Trees, Strangling Jobs

Controversial tactics used by far-left environmentalists are nothing new when it comes to advocating for the well-being of trees over the well-being of fellow Americans.  But taking a more in-depth look at the latest antics from a Daryl Hannah-backed outfit is no less important an exercise in demonstrating their lack of concern for economic and national security winners such as the Keystone XL pipeline, as it is an endless source of entertainment.

Is the Obama Administration Still Artificially Inflating Job Numbers By Counting 'Lives Touched'?

When last month's unemployment rate took a sudden and unexpected plunge to 7.8%, conservatives who thought there was something amiss took a beating in the media.  Jack Welch was particularly excoriated for a tweet he sent out suggesting that the numbers were fabricated, and others who had similar doubts were labeled condescendingly as 'unemployment rate truthers'.

Government Regulation Slowing Energy Jobs and Economic Growth

With unemployment in the United States at 8.3%, job growth is something which should be encouraged. However, it would seem that the government is only interested in jobs that support their agenda.

Lights Out: War On Coal Continues Unabated

Let us remember that this was the plan all along. And it's working.Patriot Coal Company filed for bankruptcy on July 9, 2012 as coal prices have plummeted from reduced demand resulting from low natural gas prices and new regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). (emphasis mine)This is probably just the beginning.

As Promised - Team Obama Kills Another 750 Coal Jobs in VA, KY and WV

In January 2008 Barack Obama told the San Francisco Chronicle:"Under my plan of a cap and trade system electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Businesses would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that cost onto consumers." He promised that his plan would cause electricity rates to skyrocket.

Dysfunctional Governance Kills Jobs – Duh!

4.  Moral and Legal Authority A government with moral and legal authority promulgates written rules and universally, impartially and uniformly enforces the rules, which provides a predictable and stable legal order on which to base economic and personal decisions.  The law prevails, not the proclamation or arbitrary decision of a ruler, government bureaucrat, the enforcer (e.g., policeman) or judge.“Measuring Economic Policy Uncertainty” by Scott Baker, Nicholas Bloom and Steven J.
