Glenn Beck says that he will move to Canada, but will Canada agree to accept him? In the comedy movie  of 1977 vintage, Slap Shot, Paul Newman coached a hockey team of losers who won the big game. One of the team members was a Canadian that the US wanted to deport, but Canada would not take him back. Rush Limbaugh promised to move to Costa Rica, but he still lives in a mansion in Florida. I’ll believe Glenn Beck’s promise only after I see him crossing the border.

The June jobs report showed the economy gained 195,000 jobs, but the unemployment rate was unchanged. Many of those jobs however, were low paying or entry level jobs that make earning a decent living difficult. Where have the good jobs gone?

Where have all the good jobs gone?
Where have all the good jobs gone?
Gone, gone away.
Where have all the good jobs gone?
India, China and Bangladesh
That’s where all the good jobs have gone.
Gone, gone away, for good
They aren’t coming back.
Who benefits when all the good jobs go away?
Not you, not me, not that group of three
Or three hundred standing in the unemployment line.
Who benefits when all the jobs go South of the border
Down Mexico, Costa Rica, El Salvador way?
NAFTA, CAFTA, SAFTA and all that jazz.
Who benefits? CEO’s, members of Congress
Retailers of luxury goods on
Fifth Avenue, Michigan Avenue and Rodeo Drive.
Outsource their jobs: CEO’s, members of Congress
And sellers of luxe goods and then
Outsourcing of good jobs will cease today
The outsourcing of good jobs will cease TODAY.

Broken promises

Rush Limbaugh promised to move to Costa Rica if Barack Obama were re-elected in 2012. He is still here

Michele Bachmann promised to leave Minnesota if the state of Minnesota approved gay marriage, They did and she is still a Minnesota Congressperson. If she does keep her promise, I hope that she will go north, rather than east, south or west.

Rush Limbaugh promised that he would move to Costa Rica if Barack Obama were re-elected. It is time to put up or shut up. Rush can do one of three things:

  1. Shut up.
  2. Move to Costa Rica or
  3. Shut up and move to Costa Rica

I prefer option 3.

Rush, while you’re at it, please take Donald Trump with you. Both of you have lost all credibility; Donald with his call for revolution and you with your endless patter. Goodby.

Please see Rush
