Yes, exactly! Teachers and a wide assortment of local and state workers around these parts are getting laid off. State and local public workers, such as teachers and what-not will likely decrease in number, but the number of federal government workers will likely increase.This thread is about federal government employees getting laid off... and we see no sign of that at all.
Well, since at least one person in a two parent household is currently unemployed, we really don't need Public Education anymore. The only reason you have Public Schools at all is as a Warehouse for kids so their parents can work. So you can certainly expect teaching positions in the public schools to be cut. The unemployed parents can Homeschool of course.
Police and Firefighters are a more difficult problem. Cut these positions too much while at the same time crime is bound to increase and you'll quickly end up with social anarchy. With that comes decreasing Tax revenue to the federal goobermint, but so long as they can keep printing money and people take it this isn't a problem, effectively the FG just makes Police and Firefighters part of the Federal Goobermint.
Clearly, the private sector has failed spectacularly here, so obviously if anyone is going to be employed at all its going to have to come from Goobermint. Still waiting for the New WPA from Obama. Currently he is just following the Banksters advice to shovel funny money at them on the theory that will create new jobs in the private sector. That's working...NOT. Exploding Job Losses
In one form or another here now, EVERYONE is already a Goobermint worker. In some form or another, your industry is getting subsidized by Obamout Toilet Paper. In my case, because Alaska is funded in large part by the US Military and they are being paid with Toilet Paper, that Toilet Paper filters down to me in the local economy. If you truly stopped the Fed from Printing and the US Treasury from issuing more Irredeemable debt, about INSTANTLY the military would collapse and so would in fact every last department of the US Goobermint, because the US Goobermint is Bankrupt. There aren't enough tax receipts to even pay for daily operations. This of course is WHY the Fedral Deficit is ballooning at a geometric pace here, has nothing to do with Obama at all really, despite what Planty spins in his propaganda. Same thing would have happenned under anybody else, McCain or even Ron Paul, though it would have been interesting to see the results of simply letting the whole structure collapse instantaneously if Ron Paul had followed thru with those ideas.
Anyhow, yes as long as the US Goobermint exists and is in control of a currency system that works, they are going to be the Employer of last resort here. At least at the moment they have an infinitely deep pocket to keep writing paychecks to all their workers. The only Big Companies surviving here are those which in some way are getting Obamout Toilet Paper. Small companies are still surviving by servicing the Big Company Employees (the US Goobermint Military for instance) and sieving off some Toilet Paper this way.
The economy is becoming Socialist by default here, LITERAL default in the monetary sense. Its more a Fascist solution at the moment than a Communist one, but either way its Socialism of a form. Its going to be interesting how long they can keep it running on Toilet Paper.
