Praise be! Our sainted socialist-in-chief has delivered us from dreaded job lock.

Now that his horrific health care bill has eliminated millions of present and future jobs, we are free to pursue our dreams of being painters and poets. We can sit on our collective duffs and sculpt and scribe while the less enlightened go to the jobs that are still left and subsidize our aspirations of the fine arts.

Thank you, King Obama and Queen Pelosi, for this freedom.

However, the eminently more informed Margaret Thatcher said rightly, of the problem of socialism, that “eventually you run out of other people’s money” to spend.
