America Honors its Veterans!:
Veteran Unemployment Passes 30%

612 words

According to John Robb’s Global Guerrillas blog, the unemployment rate for 18- to 24-year-olds, which is 15.3% overall, is 30.4% for veterans. Robb also notes that the Business Week analysis on which he draws uses the “weak measure of unemployment (not the one used during the Great Depression).”

Robb adds:

  • Lots of these guys are combat vets. They are typically the least employable given their training.
  • There are many more yet to come. Hundreds of thousands have yet to be laid off. Big defense cuts are coming as the budget continues to gush red ink.
  • Unemployment is going to get much worse in the next couple of years.

This is a clear measure of the sickness of American society. When in the military, young men’s lives are used and often ended for what they are told is the common good. But when they leave the military and have difficulty reintegrating into civilian life, well, that’s their problem.

This, of course, is the policy of the same society in which city, state, and federal employment is largely a form of welfare for otherwise unemployable blacks. In Atlanta, well over 90% percent of the people who pretend to work for the city are black, and Atlanta’s is only one of many city governments controlled by rapacious black parasites.

As for federal workers, Patrick Buchanan writes:

Though 10 percent of the U.S. civilian labor force, African-Americans are 18 percent of U.S. government workers. They are 25 percent of the employees at Treasury and Veterans Affairs, 31 percent of the State Department, 37 percent of Department of Education employees and 38 percent of Housing and Urban Development. They are 42 percent of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp., 55 percent of the employees at the Government Printing Office and 82 percent at the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency.

When the Obama administration suggested shutting down Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the mortgage giants whose losses of $150 billion have had to be made up by taxpayers, The Washington Post warned, in a story headlined, “Winding Down Fannie and Freddie Could Put Minority Careers at Risk,” that 44 percent of Fannie employees and 50 percent of Freddie’s were persons of color.

What percentage of these black government employees would be employable in the private sector, in any position beyond drawling “Do you want some fries with that?” Anyone who has dealt with black bureaucrats has had to wonder: Wouldn’t America be more prosperous if we just put these people on welfare for life (in exchange for sterilizing them), rather than have them gumming up the economy by pretending that they can work? The same, of course, applies to many affirmative action tokens in the private sector.

Of course, one of the main reasons why blacks enjoy such luxurious government patronage is the threat of “long hot summers” of insurrection. Combat veterans take note.

Here’s a modest proposal: Why not fire every incompetent federal employee (regardless of race)? Why not put them on welfare for life, in exchange for sterilization? Give the same offer to every combat vet with an IQ of less than 100, because truth be told, a lot of them were only employable by the military. For the rest, give veterans (and veterans alone) affirmative action in government job hiring. If anyone has earned such consideration, they have.

This Veteran’s Day, I suggest you all watch Paul Verhoven’s movie version of Robert A. Heinlein’s Starship Troopers. Aside from the feminism and multiracialism, it is pretty close to an ideal society in my book. And it was the veterans who rose up and established it. Why not use it as a blueprint today? Far sillier books, from the Koran to the Communist Manifesto and beyond, have become the foundations of new orders.

    In the nineteenth century libertarianism meant voluntary communism.

    Heinlein was a libertarian so there wouldn’t be anything racial as that would be ‘collectivist’. Nevertheless the book is a better articulation of Heinlein’s world view than the movie version which it intentionally parodied.

    For the record the idea of granting citizenship in return for military service is not science fiction but has been the basis for most modern states, who have used various forms of conscription in peace and war in the past 200 years. Military service has not made the electorates of these nations any wiser. 2 years of shining shoes and getting shouted at by a drill sergeat might install in the white youth of today a little discipline but it doesn’t spread classical republican virtues throughout the political system.

    I liked the book better than the movie, although I really liked the movie too. The book is a quick read and packed with interesting, profoundly anti-egalitarian ideas that never make it into the movie, so I would recommend people read the book first. To me, the book is fundamentally about heroism and sacrifice for the greater collective good.

    There are feminist and multi-racial elements in the book as well the movie, however. Even though Starship Troopers was published in the late 50s before Jews had warped this culture beyond recognition — basically the era portrayed in the show Mad Men — Heinlein depicts a world where women are considered better pilots than men, and the Mobile Infantry is multi-racial.

    Heinlein seems to have been ahead of his time in incorporating feminist and multi-racial elements into his works. Although, at the same time, Heinlein didn’t cross over into the absurd either. Even though he depicts women as the best pilots, the Mobile Infantry — the ones who fight the bugs — is an all male force, and women are excluded from the Mobile Infantry on the basis of being physically unable to compete with men.

    There is no explicit mention of race in Starship Troopers that I can remember, and in fact it’s implied that the hero Johnnie Rico is of Philippine descent. Rico is played by an actor with exceptionally Aryan looks in the movie which is a departure from the book.

    ‘This Veteran’s Day, I suggest you all watch Paul Verhoven’s movie version of Robert A. Heinlein’s Starship Troopers. ‘

    That is a really good idea.

    Better to honor fictional veterans, then no veterans at all!

    ‘Aside from the feminism and multiracialism, it is pretty close to an ideal society in my book. And it was the veterans who rose up and established it. Why not use it as a blueprint today?’

    Many lily-livered liberals assert that Heinlein based his Federation-establishing Veterans on the German Freikorps! Perhaps the White American vets returning from Iraq and Afghanistan today, returning to such a bleak ‘home-land’ laid desolate by economic mis-management, can create a Far Right American Free Corps!!!

    Also, on the last point, consider the real life example of how, as the war progressed [badly], the Waffen SS became less a employment scheme for ‘perfect Aryan specimens’ and branched out into Croatian, Arab, Hindu, etc. units, offering various national and racial partisans a role as part of the Greater Cause. No Slavs, though, I think; some have pointed out Hitler’s contempt for Slavs — I suppose, because they had to be exterminated so as to provide veterans with vast holdings in the East as part of the Lebensraum project — as his greatest mistake, preventing Slavs in the East from welcoming the NS as liberators and allowing Stalin to turn WWII into “The Great Patriotic War.”

      Say what you will about Hitler. He certainly had faults, but he was a great man nonetheless. Whether they liked Slavs or not, Europe, and probably the world, would have been a better place it the Germans had won World War II.

    “Why not fire every incompetent federal employee (regardless of race)? Why not put them on welfare for life, in exchange for sterilization?”

    Frankly, I’d take that offer myself. I mean, it’s not like at this point I’m going to be raising some Leave it to Beaver suburban White family anyway. We could drop the “looking for work” charade and devote myself full time to blogging for The Cause.

    As for Starship Troopers, Alisdair Clarke had similar views, regarding it as a model for an Aryan Imperium:

    “This political structure is integral yet flexible. For instance, my own politics derives partly from the volunteerist State described in Robert Heinlein’s STARSHIP TROOPERS, with leaders (first function) elected by citizen volunteers (second function) who have elevated themselves from the producing and consuming mass (third function).”

    I confess that I still haven’t read the novel. I believe, however, that the “feminist and multicultural” stuff isn’t there. Adding it to the movie was a nice touch, further confusing reviewers. However, I think it makes sense, logically. If the criterion of citizenship is service to the state, then if someone can serve, why not let them? Why not let the “talented tenth” serve, and sterilize or euthanize the others? Far better than the situation you describe, where whole parts of the government are turned into make-work programs for the 90%.

    The thing I’ve never understood about the whole “gays in the military” paranoia was the apparent assumption that there are, or would be if we didn’t stop ’em, a whole bunch of homos salted away in the corps, doing their jobs, perhaps superlatively, and OTHERWISE indiscernible. I mean, if they get through boot camp, what’s the problem? Affirmative action would mean that Harvey Fierstein would serve just because they need to fill the quota; but if they meet R. Lee Ermey’s standards, what’s the diff? Even Ed McMahon was a Marine, how hard can it be?

    Here in NYC, the Feds have spent 20 years dumbing down and dumbing down the Fire Dept. exams, and still can’t get “enough” blacks to pass. The Federal judge is practically micromanaging the individual firehouses. This is what passes for “racism” today. I would suggest that real racism would be, even if a black passed the original exam, he couldn’t join. People may have that luxury in peacetime; Verhoven’s idea is that when the bugs attack, passing the exam is more important to the State than race or gender.

    Good observations. I noticed the author of the guerrilla blog makes this astute and ominous observation:

    IF we keep going in this direction, and there’s no reason to think we won’t, these young men find new groups to care for them and they shift their loyalties to new gangs/mafias/cartels/militias etc. at a pretty amazing clip. Given the danger this shift in primary loyalties represents for the future, going it alone isn’t an option. You need a community at your back.

    And of course Whites are the only ones who don’t understand the “don’t go it alone” principle. Assuming current trends continue, the young White veterans will be spat on by society. They will then start running around atomistically accomplishing nothing while the Black and Hispanic organize into street gangs. I read a story the other day about a Black gang member who used an attack technique he learned in the US Marine Corp to take on two police officers and kill both of them. It’s a troubling trend.

    Maybe our own Hitler is out there right now in Afghanistan or some other hell hole. Hitler was a humble corporal, so you never know.

    The great irony here is that the armed forces signature sales pitch has been, receive an education, get a career, be all you can be.
