Sanford's Commerce Secretary has an idea about SC's Smiling Faces
At the recent cabinet meeting, Governer Sanford's Commerce Secretary offered that South Carolina's unemployed could be failing drug tests, and that's why there are so many unemployed.
It is interesting that Secretary Joe Taylor did not mention how his department has not coordinated very will with local economic developmment efforts. It interesting that the Secretary did not mention how if our leaders tell people from how dumb we are and how backwards we are, potential investors will go elsewhere. Pigs and hissy fits with the Employment Security Commission will not bring jobs to South Carolina.
It's brillant. When the Sanford Admininstration is not trying to convince people that South Carolinians are too dumb, they are trying to convince people we are too high. That approach really has to impress potential employers and investors in the state.
Who but Joe Taylor and Mark Sanford could come up with the notion that what causes our economic woes is that the state known for "Smiling faces, beatiful places," had too many of those smiling faces chemically induced?
