The New Economy Is Here!

For all those unemployed Masters of the Universe (see below post), there's hope, as Mark Steyn relates.

I was in Vermont the other day and made the mistake of picking up the local paper. Impressively, it contained a quarter-page ad, a rare sight these days

...the one real advertisement was from something called SEVCA. SEVCA is a "nonprofit agency," ...And it stands for "South-Eastern Vermont Community Action."

The designated "anti-poverty agency" is taking out quarter-page ads in every local paper because they're "seeking applicants for several positions funded in full or part by the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA)"

The first listed job?

"ARRA Projects Coordinator."

Gotcha. So the first new job created by the stimulus is a job "coordinating" other programs funded by the stimulus. What's next?


That's how they spell it. Like in "Star Wars" – Luke Grantwriter waving his hope saber as instructed by his mentor Obi-Bam Baracki ("May the Funds be with you!"). The Grantwriter will be responsible for writing grant applications "to augment ARRA funds." So the second new job created by stimulus funding funds someone to petition for additional funding for projects funded by the stimulus.

The third job is a "Marketing Specialist" to increase "public awareness of ARRA-funded services."

Plenty more at the link. Think of it--this circus of Statism/Fascism will soon be arriving here in Wisconsin!
