Darrell Issa Explores the Administration's Definition of "Green Jobs" at the House Oversight Committee


It turns out that according to the administration, “green jobs” include: college professors teaching classes on environmental studies, clerks at bicycle repair shops, antique dealer employees, Salvation Army workers because they are selling used clothing, stores selling rare books and manuscripts, consignment shop workers, used record shop employees, garbage disposal workers, and even oil lobbyists if they are engaged in advocacy related to environmental issues.

I don't expect much from civil servants. But intellectual dishonesty has reached a new low.

No surprise. Honesty is not much of a virtue in politics.

JJ-

i agree expect the part about "intellectual". you are being much too kind.

this is more akin to quacks selling magic elixir out of the back of a colorful wagon and leaving town before you find out it's sugar water than anything intellectual.

investors? how quaint. get a grant son. get a no interest 30 year federal loan.

investors for a green project? why would you do that when money is free?
