What's a "Green Job"? If You Find Out, Let Obama Know

Turns out even Obama's lapdog liberal media brigade can't tell you. Newsweek attempted to find out to no avail:

President Obama devoted nearly $60 billion of his stimulus package to building a new green-based economy rich in renewable energy and strategies to cut carbon. But despite the price tag, not one green job yet exists. It comes down to a problem of etymology. No one can yet agree on what a green job actually is. The working definition paints a broad stroke: a job that's good for the economy while simultaneously healing the earth. But that leaves lots open to interpretation—natural gas is technically a cleaner fuel than crude oil, but it's still unsustainable—making it difficult, if not impossible, to measure whether eco-based jobs are being created and whether, as the administration has claimed, they're the saviors of a sagging economy.
This is a pretty damning assertion coming from the lapdoggyest of the lapdog liberal media magazines.

So among all the other lies told by the liberal's Messiah we have this whopper -- that we're creating millions of "green jobs". We'll tell you just how many millions when we figure out just what the hell a "green job" is.

Here's "Green Czar" (communist/anarchist/social agitator) Van Jones's attempt at a definition:

Well, we still don't have a unified definition, and that's not unusual in a democracy. It takes a while for all the states and the federal government to come to some agreement. But the Department of Labor is working on it very diligently. Fundamentally, it's getting there, but we haven't crossed the finish line yet.

That's 55 words to say: We don't have a definition for what a "green job" is. What is unusual in a representative republic -- we don't have a democracy, Comrade Jones, but I wouldn't expect an avowed communist to be able to correctly characterize the nature of our federal government (or at least what it's supposed to be) -- is to have three dozen unaccountable "czars", most of them with extreme radical socialist bents, and all their staffs, in the executive branch of the federal government. And I would hazard a guess that the vast majority of them are no better able than Jones to define what they are supposed to be in charge of. Your tax dollars and mine at work to fund a shadow government of nobody socialists doing nothing productive.
