Brilliant! Well thats a novel idea!

But - no hats!


Each one of the 50 States could come up with their own Unemployment Superhero!

Texas could be a longhorn steer riden by a cowboy with a cape instead!



Oh, and no guns for Texas, add into part of the campaign to turn in your guns too!

Oh here we go again, so when all the states have their own super hero's Obama can kinda take on the role of Professor Xavier, but this time the state superheros will be called O'men.
Then Dr Evil Unemployment will be in big trouble.

I kind of feel dirty after this post......

But I will volunteer for the Washington State O man. I can be a big giant pine tree that crushes unemployment in my state. With one caveat, NO LUMBER JOBS sorry. Oh yeah and no apples cause I hate when you guys pick at me. But other wise I will crush all other unemployment!!

Wow! I find that stunning - but not surprising. I worked for the local provincial government for 15 years, and it's my observation that government bureaucracies only do one thing well: enforcement of rules and regulations. Now, I'm not saying that's all bad; there are times when you want to enforce rules. Do you want to fly in an airplane, drive in a car, or live in a building that isn't built to safety codes, for example?
Generally speaking, however, governments tend to waste a lot of money - and this is a prime example.

Capes!!! Sheesh....

As someone who lives in Miami and is a long time Florida resident I am proud to say, we are all pretty much insane with a shared set of values so scewered we don't know what we might do next.

The micro-chip that makes IED's in Afghanistan and Iraq go boom? Made right here in Florida!

Number one in Medicare Fraud.

Number one in Real Estate Fraud.

Number one in IRS Fraud.

Number one in the importation of illegal narcotics.

Number one in the number of public Officials sent to jail.

Number one in Money Laundering.

We have the highest percapita convicted felons.

In fact almost the entire state is inelligble to vote which is why we are wait for it...

Number one in Voter Fraud too.

Florida remains the New World Orders worst nightmare.

This pretty much proves that government knows nothing about job creation.

The only thing that government can really do, with regard to job creation, is to make sure that they don't impose too much red tape for new business.

Then stay out of the way.

Or give people super hero red capes.

State labor officials asked their inspector general Monday to investigate why a Central Florida agency wants to spend public money to furnish the unemployed with capes.


It's obvious isn't it?

The government certainly create jobs. I'm guessing that these capes were made in China and put a couple of kids to work in a child labor camp.

These folks make the Keystone Cops look like a SWAT team.

I can't believe this. This company is winning awards for doing these stunts.
www.hrms.net...



ORLANDO, FL … WORKFORCE CENTRAL FLORIDA (WCF) received five MarCom awards for its communications programs including two platinum awards, the awards program’s highest honor; two gold awards; and one honorable mention. The MarCom Awards is an international competition, judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals, for marketing and communication professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of print, Web, visual and audio materials and programs.


And one of there awards was for Careereoki.



It's a talent show called "Careereoki" that asks job-hunters to submit videos of themselves singing about a career they want to pursue.

The winner gets a prize package valued at $8,000, which includes a scholarship for career training, job shadowing in the chosen career field, a gift certificate for a personal makeover and a $100 gas card, reports the Orlando Sentinel

One submission, called "Put a Glove On It," features three would-be medical assistants singing and dancing to the beat of Beyonce's "Single Ladies: Put A Ring On It."

"And if you wanna be safe, put your gloves on it, " the women sing.

Daniel Gonzalez made a video in which he and a friend rap about having "more gigs [gigabytes] than a pig's got ham."

All the videos are posted on the Web site of Power 95.3 FM (WPYO), a sponsor of the "Careereoki" campaign.

Considering the state of the news biz, we at FloriDUH Headquarters are working on our own entry. (Sung to Queen's We Will Rock You):

Buddy, a smart boy, take a big chance
Hire us to write -- workin' gals from FloriDUH
We got words we can sell
You'll think we're swell
Writing for laughs -- why not? What the hell!

We will, we will work hard!


So companies are having there employees who are already working putting together the videos to win the money? How does that hire anybody?
