Al Sharpton believes that Republicans cutting back on government jobs is the reason unemployment in Black and Latino communities is stagnant because, as he puts it, Blacks are disproportionately in the public sector. So his reasoning is that we need bigger government to solve the problem of high Black and Latino unemployment.

Anyone insulted yet? Because the inference he’s making is that blacks don’t really stand a chance in the private sector on their own, that they need government jobs so they can get hired though a system of nepotism or something. Or else they need government coercion in the private sector through contracts and bailouts.

Listen:

One of the reasons that I think people do not understand that unemployment has gone down and in some cases black unemployment and Latino’s has remained stagnant, is over the last thirty two months Dr. Hutchinson, they’ve increased jobs and found jobs – unemployment has gone down in the private sector. What has not gone down is [unemployment] in the public sector and blacks in particular are disproportionately in the public sector.

One of the reasons those jobs have gone down or have remained down is one, the Republicans are cutting a lot of the agencies where we are the employees of government jobs – government employees, and a lot of those jobs go to governors and mayors who also have had cutbacks. So what we’ve got to do – and we addressed this to the President – is take on these governors and mayors as well as the private sector on why the private sector is getting all these contracts and bailouts and not hiring and correcting the disproportionate amount of their employment does not touch our community and have the President and them support us in that.

      • kong1967

        Of course, because a lot of Republican states are refusing to set up Obamacare exchanges. Now it’s time for libs to go after them and try to pressure them into creating the exchanges.

        From what I hear, if enough exchanges aren’t created, Obamacare will fall apart and won’t be able to be implemented. Additionally, businesses cannot be forced to pay the fines for not carrying Obamacare. I don’t know the details, but I want the whole thing to collapse.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

          Well, if you take it to the extreme and ponder what would happen if only ONE state set up the Obamacare exchange, we’d see that it would essentially be the Government mandating that a State give out free healthcare with only their money.

          So yeah, if the State doesn’t do that now, there’s no reason to think they’ll be any more likely to survive after the Government forces them to do it! The whole purpose of Obamacare was to give tons of money to the Liberal Bastions of America, and once we say no the Liberal Bastions will shrivel up under the weight of the bureacracy they have created.

They believe the boy when he says anything and all others are lying thieving honkies. the numbers say something different, more like numbers around 20% of the government workforce are people of color – that is considerably more that the population numbers. but the fools do not let facts cloud their thinking.

      No kidding. I never imagined that at age 50, I would be facing a possible race war led by anti-American socialists who hate me because my ancestors were fair-skinned Irish. I better get practicing on my archery – this fool’s behind is the first target I’m going for.

      • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

        I’ve been considering getting a bow, just in case my guns and ammo get confiscated.

        • Constance

          Oh, it’s so much fun. I used to go practically every Sunday and practice at a local archery range. Now that the weather is cooler here where I live, I plan to get back into it more. It’s an inexpensive hobby – everything is reusable!!

          • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

            Do you like compound bows, or something like a recurve?

            • Constance

              I actually have both. I have a beautiful longbow that was given to me several years ago – it’s just like a work of art and even has my name carved into the wood. Harder to handle than a compound bow, actually, at least for me, but it’s a joy to shoot. Makes me feel like Legolas in Lord of the Rings. :) I bought myself a compound bow, which is very accurate and lightweight. That is the bow I would use to defend myself if I had to – more powerful. If you are interested in different types of bows, take a look at a website called huntersfriend.com, or check out archeryaim.com – it provides good explanations on the different types of bows out there.

            • Constance

              Re your Edit – Definitely, a recurve is nice as well. It was the long bow that pulled me into the sport heavily, because of the simplicity and beauty of it. Nothing is better than watching that arrow fly and hitting the target after practicing for ages to get it right. You should “test drive” all different types and see what tickles your fancy.

              • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

                Thanks for the links and info. I want something that is simplistic, yet can kill an animal if needed. I have talked to a couple of bow guys and they said that they pretty much take their compound bows in to have them worked on. That isn’t good for a survival type scenario.

                You probably have the right idea. Just get both, or multiple kinds.

          • charliewillson

            reusable.. yep.. just wipe the blood and guts off.. and put that baby back into your quill.. I made a quill with a vacuum cleaner shaft, covered in in soft leather, with fringe.. and a strap that fits around my shoulders. So comfortable.. and NO concealed carry permit is mandated. Nice. What was good for Robin Hood is good for me.

          They’ll take your bow, too.

        • charliewillson

          Get a nice compound bow.. a target and some target arrows.. shafts, and practice.. it is easy, and lots of fun. And.. silent. be sure to stock up on some nice point shafts, for when the action starts.. Little practice and pinpoint accuracy can be managed at 60-70 feet.. silently. Just take your time, find your target, and let go the shaft.

        • aposematic

          Had that very thought earlier this morning?

        • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

          Preppers definitely need a couple bows. A compound is nice, but relies on parts availability. One of each kind: compound, regular, and crossbow would be a good idea if you can arrange for it. (Plus, you don’t have to be “good” with them already, like you should be with guns, because you can practice with arrows without attracting attention of neighbors or scaring away game animals.)

          (EDIT: just looked at what we have and it’s all old “archery” equipment. Guess I need to do some more budgeting.)

          • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

            That is extremely attractive, as my property is 680 feet long. I can use a bow at home, whereas I cannot shoot here due to neighbors being too close. Not that I won’t shoot a rat or two with the shotgun.

            I am now looking for a good compromise on price and quality for all three types, and will be visiting my local archery shop. It looks like there is a big world of bows out there.

            • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

              Yep. Like golf clubs, they have benefitted amazingly from materials research. The last bow I ever used was in phys ed. a long time ago. They are nothing like that now!

              • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

                I like scientific advancements in products, but would almost rather drive a car with a carburetor and buy a bow made out of a stick with a string. (not that any bow is just any ol’ stick)

                • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                  Yep. I have a tractor that is older than me. It will still run after the great EMP that takes out half the country.

                  (Needs work now, though. Especially tires. The ones on it are serviceable, but I wouldn’t count on them lasting after SHTF, year one. I have so much to do it’s not funny.)

                • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

                  Mine is an 8N. (1952) The tires, last I checked, were $650 each for the rear. I paid $1500 for the tractor and implements. I have built a wood gas generator that I could run it on, but haven’t perfected it yet. I know what you mean about having a lot to do. I was just working on my reloading room today, and getting ready to set up my food room. I have 300lbs of dry goods that need to go into buckets and mylar bags, and 500 quarts of canned food to build shelving for. I have a 1500 gallon stainless tank that I need to set up for rain water recovery. I have a 20X30 greenhouse that needs to go up, and a garden that needs built up. I just added 26 chickens to my flock and need to build worm beds to feed them in the future. Next year I am raising turkeys for canned meat, and need to add chicken wire to about 1000ft of fencing…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

                  I love the carburetors on those old tractors.

                • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                  I know what you mean. Literally “dirt simple” they are.

                  I’m considering buying a distiller. I think the ability to make quality ethanol after SHTF would be almost as good as functional currency. Some really nice, stainless steel models are available.

                • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

                  I understand that ethanol burns at a 4/1 ratio to gasoline. It could be used for many things, such as cooking, heating, lighting, etc. I was thinking about getting one just to purify water, but hadn’t looked into buying one, until now. Thanks for the idea. I have acquired about 700 gallons of used motor oil, and built a burner to heat with it. This is the design: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryItHmcBz7c&feature=related
                  Works great, but I have to clean out the carbon in the burner daily. Not a big deal.

                • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                  That’s interesting! Thanks!

                • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                  I’m not getting instant gratification with my searches on the actual combustion and byproducts, and the long-term storage of used motor oil.

                  I assume the metals in the oil mostly deposit in the burner as soot, but I do wonder about breathing the gases (which have to be mostly water vapor and carbon-black, so no biggie there).

                  How did you handle storage?

                • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

                  K-Bob, I couldn’t reply down below, so…. Anyway, I get the oil from work in 55 gallon barrels. We have eight huge backup generators that get the oil changed out yearly, and I get the oil. I bring it home and use a 4hp Honda engine with a pump that is typically used on log splitters. You can get all the parts at Northern tool to bolt right onto the engine. I then pump it into fuel oil tanks that I got at my local fuel oil dealer. (used $50 each) I have one raised off of the ground about eight feet. I built the stand, but they are common. I have a fuel oil filter, which needs to be bigger, on the tank and then I ran a line into the house. I put the heater where the wood stove was. When it heats up you can’t really see any smoke come out at all. The carbon collects in the burner, which has to be cleaned daily with this design. The oil will store indefinitely, but will collect moisture in a vented tank, but fuel oil tanks have a port and valve at the bottom to drain the water periodically. In seal barrels, no problem.

      I doubt that. Latinos are mostly “white.” It’s more of a cultural thing with them than a skin color. Meanwhile blacks are shrinking as a percent of the population. This is why Fake-reverend Al includes “latinos” or “hispanics” in his race hustling industry now. There aren’t enough “black” folks to keep that business going. Especially since many are learning that Democrats do nothing for blacks but keep them poor.

      • bjohnson55

  • http://navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    I don’t know where all this “cutting” Al is talking about is coming from. Someone should remind Al that there is a liberal Democratic president and a Senate controlled by the Democrats. There hasn’t even been a Federal budget in almost four years, so nothing really has been cut at all at the Federal level. Al may have lost some jobs at the state level, but that’s because the states are literally going broke because they can’t pay for all the government employee benefits, especially when it comes to pensions. It’s ironic that states are letting state workers go because of the fat government pensions and benefits that were negotiated under Democratic politicians. So thanks to the greedy Democratic politicians and corrupt unions, more and more union members are being let go. So if Al has a bone to pick with anyone, it should be with the corrupt officials who negotiated those contracts to begin with. Sure stinks when you’re screwed by your own side, right Al? And if thousands of government jobs are cut because of the upcoming Sequestration, then Al should blame Obama, the guy who signed on to the deal. Poor Al, nailed by his own buddy in the White House.

    • PhillyCon

      My thoughts exactly. Where are these cuts? Seriously? 16 trillion in deficits is cutting? I know we are living in an alternate universe, but this is too much.

      But no worries, facts and reality are non existent in this new age that is Obama governance. And, don’t expect anyone to question this.

    So, if I’ve got this right, Rev. Al is telling us that Blacks are not dependent enough on the Federal government/plantation. How much is MSNBC paying him for this BS?

  • CitizenVetUSA

    He continues to think like a victim but his thinking is wrong. Freedom is through Private Sector Jobs not government jobs.

  • drphibes

    Sharpton is correct. This fact was first reported by Tawana Brawley.

  • Danny Kelly

    Actually, both in terms of the definition of “inference” and the greater point you’re making, that’s your inference, not Sharpton’s.

    I think the point he’s making is that there were a lot of people of color working in the public sector, which has been both hit hardest and been overall slowest to recover. I don’t think he’s saying we need “more” government, but rather that we need to return public funding to pre-recession levels.

    That public sector employment has been severely hit since the recession began and that this has disproportionally affected people of color is not a wild assertion, it’s a fact.

    • tinlizzieowner

      “I don’t think he’s saying we need “more” government, but rather that we need to return public funding to pre-recession levels.”

      To do what, if it isn’t to employ more ‘minorities’?

        To give people back the jobs they once had, maybe?

    Allow me to quote Victor Davis Hansen:

    “Only in the hyper-racialist America can we take quite distinct Japanese, Filipino, Korean, and Chinese third-generation citizens and create from them the artificial rubric “Asian” in their shared antithesis to “white,” or take disparate Cubans and Mexicans and likewise reinvent them as identical Latinos, or take Jamaicans, Ethiopians, and American blacks and call them all “African-Americans” on the similar logic of not being something equally artificial like white — which I guess covers Americans who used to be Greeks, Irish, Armenians, Jews, Poles, and Danes.”

    Apparently, it is an effective tool used by the left to “gin people up” as they say. Group people together and convince them they are victims.

    Pick an imaginary target like “the 1%” or “the Republicans” and get everyone worked up over it.

    In this case, actually try to convince people that this artificial group of Americans are victims because, in this fantasy, they can only work for the government.

    I don’t know why The Reverend Al Sharpton is viewed with any credibility or stature.

    • Kordane

      You have identified one of the tools of collectivism. Rather than see people as distinct individuals, the collectivist puts them into tribal groupings, and then pits them against each other in battles over territory, power, resources, etc.

      A “mixed economy”, as America is right now, is the perfect battleground for the collectivist. Ayn Rand described the mixed economy as: “a country in the process of disintegration, a civil war of pressure-groups looting and devouring one another”.

    ‘Latin’ is the language of the Romans. The Romans came from Italy. The word ‘Latino’ means of Latin origin. All of my grandparents were (legal) immigrants, one from Italy.

    I guess my answer would be; perhaps minorities shouldn’t rely on the government for everything from food stamps to jobs. The government isn’t in the business of employing people. Yes, they do employ people as a consequence of performing other responsibilities but it isn’t their duty or obligation. This is just more proof of how much minorities depend on the government to carry them from cradle to grave. I wonder if idiot Al realizes how he exposed himself?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Edward-Zielinski/1653105195 Edward Zielinski

    Check it out and see what the Liberals gave to those who voted for them.

    So, doing a little research on Obamacare to answer a difficult question. “what if I employ 50 more employees but many or all are married and covered by their spouses health insurance?” I think I have the answer but along the way discovered this. If a SINGLE one of your employees gets help from the government with their health insurance, you pay the $2K penalty not just for that person, but for your total fulltime headcount (employee count – 30 times $2,000). To prevent that government rebate from occuring, you have to make sure your plan’s premium to the employee doesn’t exceed 9.5% of their household income. So if you pay them $10 an hour ($20,000 per year) and get them the average health plan for an individual (just under $5,000 but lets round to 5K), you have to make sure that premium is less than $200 a month. Which mean you cough up the other $215 per month. It boils down to this, a 13% tax. So you want to pay your employee $10, it’ll be more like $11.30 an hour. Now add the 6.2% you are on the hook for social security and 1.45% for medicare. Now you’re at $12.06 to pay that person 10 an hour. Of course after they lose their %16 to income tax and SS/Medicare they’ll only see $8.40. So I pay $12.06, you see $8.40. *Throws hands up in the air*

    Again, blaming others. Never able to accept the “responsibility” of Obama’s policies and regulations as the driving force behind growing numbers of unemployment, private section shutting down, continued housing foreclosures with the higher taxes coming to further cause the decline and drop in wages as the new year comes in a short few weeks, just to name a few. I don’t believe for one minute that the House and Senate or especially the president will come to a real agreement that is in the best interest of the American People or our Nation. He is bound to destroy our economy any way he can. The health care law is one that was meant to strip people of their rights to control their medical decisions and forced to pay for procedures and things they don’t need nor want. Get between their doctors and make decisions for US because THEY THINK THAT AMERICANS ARE TOO STUPID TO DO IT THEMSELVES!! Just like our taxes dollars, they think they know how to spend our money better than we do. Right! Look at the Post Office, VA’s hospital and care system, DMV Office, Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security (which they keep stealing from and will never be able to pay back), the BS between the House and Senate along with a president who continues to divide the country so nothing for US gets done. They are well off and don’t see the problems we face because they don’t face eviction, unemployment, inability to get food or health care… responsibility of and blaming others for crazy reasons for events like huge unemployment in various cultures goes right back to obama and they know it. They are angry too because if all thirty states refuse to set up the exchanges, then obamacare falls because they need the states to cooperate in order to get their “special interest group law” or obamacare to enacted like they want. I hope they hold on and don’t cave in at all.

  • Philo Beddoe

    Ok Al, what’s your plan after all the blacks and latino’s are employed by the govt and they still make up the majority of prison inmates?

  • charliewillson

    Simple logic.. Qualification. Ask an ordinary, regular.. private citizen, black, WHO their Congressional representative is? Some men will know, but only a few. The black women can almost NEVER answer the question. That said, they CAN tell you what you need to know to get food stamps, or to add yourself to the trough of other such unjust and unfair, anti-American Free Enterprise, hand out programs. We had a bill board sign on one of the main Freeways coming in and out of Atlanta, providing a tel. number for help and assistance, for blacks, of course, in getting on one of the many handout programs established by Congress, and you know who, as yet another means of “vote buying”, “pandering”. UNLESS the white men open their eyes and become actively involved in their country, TAKE THEIR COUNTRY BACK, then soon, very soon, there will be no more recognizable Unites States of America. Veterans. Do any of you EVEN know that only one per-cent (1%) of Americans have ever worn the uniform?? Hello? History is not even taught in the public school system now. Pre-schoolers, 5 year olds, are being taught, in the first two weeks of class in the public school system, Marxist Communism. The doctrine being, “From each according to his ability, To each according to his need”. This is BEING TAUGHT in class rooms of the Public School Systems now. UNLESS the people of this country TAKE THEIR COUNTRY BACK, soon.. sooner than later, there will be not much worth having and investing in that remains.. I am shoveling sand against the tide in this. I know this. Americans are following along like ducks behind the Greeks, who did essentially the same things, resulting in the loss of their nation. Now.. apathetic and non-caring Americans are doing virtually the same things. I give up.

It is only right that those who voted for handouts over jobs should pay the price. Elections have consequences.

    Can someone explain to me, how this isn’t raising taxes, oh excuse me, revenue. I’m tired of having my intelligence insulted by them thinking they can change the term, or using a sleazy way of raising revenue.

    How about if I complain that the reason so many white people are not employed in well-paying government jobs is because our racist leaders are intent on hiring all the black and brown people they can.

    Talk about racism. This man takes the top prize for it. If EVERYONE would shut up trying to keep racism alive and live life by the fact that we are all human and treat everyone as such, life would be so much better. No job should be decided by color, sex, etc. it should be decided by the one with the best education or work experience and pay should be done the same way. Where is the rule stating that a male should get higher pay than a woman, or that you should hire a minority over others? Seems like that is just the stupid government putting their noses into the workforce and we all know how bad our government is. So why listen to any of them?

    Lets be fare here before we throw stones at radical Al.
    As a retired New York City government employee and a Latino. I can tell you for a fact that what the reverend is saying here is correct when he mentions that the majority of government workers happen to be minorities of Black and Latino descent, especially in the big cities like New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
    That they depend on the government for their employment is also true being that most of those jobs depends little on experience and education. Some of those government jobs doesn’t even require a high school diploma or GED.
    In many cases most of the people that have worked for government has done so because it was the easy way out of poverty, the jobs were guaranteed, and were protected by civil service law. They were granted great benefits, full medical coverage for the entire family, and 5 weeks guaranteed vacations. The wages were very low at the start of employment, but many of us knew they would go up eventually as our government unions fought for better contractual wages. The government coffers with the collected tax revenues from private and commercial enterprises would eventually increase providing us the raises incrementally as the years passed.
    This is the reality and it will continue as long as the governments provide these jobs with just a high school or GED diploma, and little to no experience. And in most big cities throughout the United States the Democratic party runs the municipalities and encourage minorities into government sector employment for which their participation guarantees their power over the electorate and creates a huge voting block the Republicans can’t overcome.
