New Rallying Cry for Unemployed: Will Riot for Jobs!

By John W. Lillpop

Mayor Bloomberg has looked into his crystal ball and he sees deep trouble and dark skies for New York City.

Specifically, New York’s goofy mayor sees riots in the streets if the jobless situation does not improve.

Rather than the usual “Will work for food,” Bloomberg sees the streets cluttered with people carrying signs reading, “Will riot for jobs!”

As reported at the reference:

“Mayor Bloomberg warned Friday there would be riots in the streets if Washington doesn't get serious about generating jobs.

"We have a lot of kids graduating college, can't find jobs," Bloomberg said on his weekly WOR radio show.

"That's what happened in Cairo. That's what happened in Madrid. You don't want those kinds of riots here."

In Cairo, angry Egyptians took out their frustrations by toppling presidential strongman Hosni Mubarak - and more recently attacking the Israeli embassy.

As for Madrid, the most recent street protests were sparked by widespread unhappiness that the Spanish government was spending millions on the visit of Pope Benedict instead of dealing with widespread unemployment.

Bloomberg's unusually alarmist pronouncement came as President Obama has been pressuring reluctant Republicans to pass his proposed job creation plan.

"The damage to a generation that can't find jobs will go on for many, many years," the normally-measured mayor said.

Bloomberg gave Obama kudos for coming up with a jobs plan.”

Kudos to Obama for a jobs plan?

Remember, Obama also spent nearly one trillion dollars on a stimulus that was supposed to create or save millions of jobs. That includes $538 million dollars wasted on Solyndra!

Does Bloomberg really believe that Obama’s latest scheme will be any better?

Based on what?
