You will laugh (and cry) watching the latest Project Veritas sting by filmmaker James O’Keefe of ACORN fame. He takes the concept of “shovel-ready jobs” to a whole new level.
Yesterday, Breitbart’s Big Government posted the story (hat tip: Cathy):
James O’Keefe’s new Project Veritas video (see below) is a stunning exposé of union corruption surrounding so-called “shovel ready” jobs. In typically irreverent Project Veritas style, O’Keefe introduces a new company: Earth Supply and Renewal. What do they do? O’Keefe explains:
First, our excavation specialists insert their shovels into the ground and remove the soil. This presents the problem of an existing hole in the earth, creating a dangerous situation that could lead to hazards, including but not limited to tripping, falling, and bodily injuries.
Then there is the renewal process. At Earth Supply, we train professional backfillers to renew the soil in place of the existing hole, restoring the earth to its original condition.
Some folks say we’re just digging ditches and filling them back up again. But it’s about more than that. It’s about jobs.
I can’t do it justice, you must go to Breitbart and read the story and watch the expose!
The admission from the Union bosses that sticks with me is this one—we have Democrat and Republican lobbyists in Albany to help us get “jobs” like these (digging holes and refilling them).
