Newt Gingrich is a devout Christian, or at least he presently is one. A few weeks ago, the man who is a serial husband urged that school custodians should be fired and replaced by poor children who could use a few spare bucks. We assume firing people was part of his plan to “create jobs.” Of course, we now know he meant ‘create jobs for poor children.” The eminent historian once again felt the need to clarify remarks. “I do not suggest children until about 14 or 15 years of age do heavy dangerous janitorial work. On the other hand, there are a number of things done to clean buildings that are not heavy or dangerous.”
OK, Newt, kids should do some work around school, but why only poor kids? If work around school is beneficial, why not require ALL students to engage in such activities? Newt says working around school will instill the American “work ethic.” Donald Trump burst out in praise of the idea. I assume his new show will be entitled: “Apprentice Child Laborer.” A child who works in mines will be featured along with children picking strawberries. However, no child of illegal immigrants will be allowed to compete on this show.
How about Newt and Mitt and Rick and Rick and Herman and Michele get into the act and take jobs cleaning up places in America which require some assistance?
