The No Jobs Generation...

Post by Guest on Wed May 30, 2012 6:27 pm

"Members of the Class of 2012: As a former secretary of labor and current professor, I feel I owe it to you to tell you the truth about the pieces of parchment you're picking up today.

"You're f*cked."

Clinton-era Labor Secretary Robert Reich's "speech" was a joke, of course, since no college administrator in their right mind would let a commencement speaker say such a terrible thing.

"There are those who believe that, if you will only legislate to make the well-to-do prosperous, their prosperity will leak through on those below. The Democratic idea, however, has been that if you legislate to make the masses prosperous, their prosperity will find its way up through every class which rests up on them."

the above quotation is from a speech made by William Jennings Bryan in 1898....yes over one hundred years ago...the last time we had trickle-down economic policies....

Robert Reich is an economist who knows HOW to fix the economic policies but the republican party wont listen....
