Hey, now here’s what our economy needs — a little instruction in entrepreneurship in this tough economy! With the unemployment rate going through the roof, we need to give people from every walk of life in this country access to knowledge that can help them be successful no matter what their economic status or background.
President Obama recognizes this, so a week from Monday he’s hosting an “Entrepreneurial Summit” in Washington.
Oh, just one thing — you have to be Muslim — and preferably from another country:
Controversial scholar Tariq Ramadan entered the United States for the first time in six years after being barred by the Bush administration, and the Obama administration has dispatched American Nobel Prize winners to advise Muslims scientists, economists and other professionals on how to improve their research and better manage their institutions. At month’s end, the U.S. government will play host to some 500 mainly Muslim business people for intensive seminars on entrepreneurship.
Given the fact that the “host” of this entrepreneurial seminar is a guy who has never run a business in his life that he didn’t take over with our tax dollars and a blatant lack of regard for the Constitution, the joke’s most likely on the Muslims who attend — unless they’re being taught how to do that exact thing, which I suspect is what’s going on.
Passing thought: Since one of Obama’s stated goals of his recent Nuke Summit was to keep terrorists from acquiring or figuring out how to build nuclear weapons, is it a good idea to haul some Muslim scientists to Washington for intensive instruction in physics?
