#1 Demand jobs?

Look around, assholes. See anything that needs fixing? Well, FIX IT!

You find something useful to do and I guarantee somebody will pay you to do it.

#2 "We want our rights like everyone else."

Sounds like a job for the Colonel Reverend Jackson.

#3 No Jesseeee is to busy collecting payoffs. I propose Major Sharpton. He's currently on a dead end crusade and will need something to do soon.

#4 Let's see, there are several thousand buildings that have sustained damage, and need to be cleaned up. There are thousands of damaged and destroyed vehicles that need to be taken care of. There's a million miles of roads that either need to be built, repaired, or cleaned up. There are several tens of thousands of other things that need to be done.

There's a very large religious community that exists in every village and town. Why aren't they working between the coalition and the people that need jobs, to see that things get done? I can't imagine the Baptists, the Methodists, the Catholics, or the Jews having to wait to be asked - they'd be hounding the leaders of the coalition, demanding help in getting these people back to work.

The people still looking for a handout are drones. They've lived so long under a ruthless dictator that told them everything to do, including when and where to squat, that they've forgotten (or perhaps never knew) how to think. There's little they can do, because there's little they WANT to do. The best thing to do with them is to send them to clear some of the millions of mines that exist in Iraq and Afghanistan. I'm sure the best of them would learn to clear mines safely. The rest will do whatever they can, but the result will be the same - the mines will be cleared.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
