I do get a bit huffy when the politicians go on the air demanding more jobs from nuclear plants and such. Actually, it's not very green to create a job where none is needed, lots of carbon for transport, space, etc.
Now, all the politicians demand a passport office in their fair cities. That is one great job creator! And carbon spitter! I'm glad that they are working so hard to make the process even more inefficient, they'll get to absorb all the auto-workers. So next time you are in the big sweaty room, waiting for your number, only to find that something is wrong, remember the jobs!
