Theme Song:

It's Over - Roy Orbison

Why isn't the media talking about the over 5,000 well-paying jobs lost in South Carolina yesterday as a result of the stoppage of Construction at VC Summer? And the huge negative impact on climate change mitigation?

The business media is discussing it. Eric Roston at Bloomberg makes some important points.

The liberal sectors of the media could EASILY pin these job losses on Trump. Trump has been in office more than six months now. Trump and Energy Secretary Rick Perry did nothing to prevent this job and construction stoppage. Good jobs are hard to find these days

Guess what? I just looked at Vox and The Atlantic. Not a peep about these major job losses. Even when they could blame it on Donald Trump.

Oh, that's right. I forgot. Liberalism these days is a cultural thing. The anti-nuclear heritage of Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt is more important than actual jobs.

Where are Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and Kennedy when we need them so badly?
