How Was The Local Job Fair Friday? Depressing, Says Blogger Art Gallagher

MoreMonmouthMusings.net creator Art Gallagher offers a candid report from the large Monmouth County spring job fair at Brookdale.

The Monmouth County Job Fair is a twice-yearly affair. The Sept. 20, 2013 fall job fair, pictured here, was crowded with job seekers who queued up to speak to certain employers.

The "deportations are at record hghs" story is one in a long list of frequently repeated lies. It is not true. Factually incorrect. It is a lie.

Republicans own some responsibility in this situation. Mitt Romney and Bain Capital raped and pillaged many companies, putting Americans out of jobs just to line their pockets: http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/greed-and-debt-the-true-story-of-mitt-romney-and-bain-capital-20120829 The problem is capitalism has gone out of control and no one has any morals anymore. The American Indians lived by the code of take only what you need from the Earth. The 1% can't ever get enough no matter the expense.

I agree that Republicans facilitated free trade treaties that disadvantaged American workers, and some Republicans are open borders advocates, but your assertions about Bain are nonsense. It's one of America's most admired companies. Romney is a good and great man. We get the government we deserve. That's a sad thought. Your claptrap about the Amerinds is mere mythology. It makes a nice story for children, but has no resonance in fact. I don't blame you for not knowing this, but the wealth concentrated in the hands of the 1% was not taken from someone else. It was created by capitalism. More people have escaped abject poverty in the last twenty years than at any time in history. They are eating, their children are surviving and they are in communication with the global civilization. This is happening because of liberal economics- capitalism.

Never refer to Rolling Stone in the context of a serious discussion of anything other than Curt Cobain's drug habits.
