News that I missed, courtesy of The Babylon Bee:
U.S.—Democratic candidates have promised relief to Americans who are tired of working because of all the jobs that are available now.
“I’m here to promise you two things: rest and relief,” Joe Biden said at a campaign stop. “Rest from working, and relief from all the job opportunities that are available to you today.”
“It’s overwhelming, the number of jobs out there,” Elizabeth Warren said, echoing Biden’s sentiments at a fundraiser. “It’s too much for a person to take in all at once. I vow to you, as a strong, independent, Native American woman, to reduce your options considerably. That should simplify things for you.”
The candidates may disagree on minor points of policy as to how to provide instant relief for Americans sick and tired of working. Bernie Sanders thinks we should tax the rich a lot more so they’ll stop investing and creating jobs to provide relief. Joe Biden says he’ll just roll things back to 2008. Kamala Harris suggested just arresting people who provide jobs. Beto O’Rourke has proposed a law that everyone be required to get high and listen to Rush every morning instead of go to work.
The last time that occurred was a half century ago when I was 12. Wages are rising with workers on the lower end of the economic scale getting most of the benefits.
We Catholics tend to hear an endless amount of tripe about “social justice”. The best “social justice” you can give anyone at the lower rungs of wealth is a job. By that standard Trump, yes Trump, has done more for true social justice than all but a handful of his presidential predecessors.
