    New Legislation

    Obama plan to endunemployment.....

    'The Americans with NoAbilities Act'

    Washington is considering sweeping legislation that will provide new
    benefitsfor many Americans. The Americans with No Abilities Act is being
    hailedas a major legislative goal by advocates of the millions of Americans
    wholack any real skills or ambition.

    "Roughly50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive
    necessaryto carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society," said a
    CaliforniaSenator. "We can no longer stand by and allow People of Inability
    (POI)to be ridiculed and passed over. With this legislation, employers will
    nolonger be able to grant special favors to a small group of workers,
    simplybecause they have some idea of what they are doing."


    Ina Capitol Hill press conference, several lawmakers pointed to the success
    ofthe U.S. Postal Service, which has a long-standing policy of providing
    opportunitywithout regard to performance. At the state government level,
    theDepartment of Motor Vehicles also has an excellent record of hiring
    Personswith No Ability (63 percent).

    Underthe Americans with No Abilities Act, more than 25 million mid-level
    positionswill be created, with important-sounding titles but little real
    responsibility,thus providing an illusory sense of purpose and performance.

    Mandatorynon-performance-based raises and promotions will be given to
    guaranteeupward mobility for even the most unremarkable employees. The
    legislationprovides substantial tax breaks to corporations that promote a
    significantnumber of Persons of Inability (POI) into middle-management
    positions,and give a tax credit to small and medium-sized businesses that
    agreeto hire one clueless worker for every two talented hires.

    Finally,the Americans With No Abilities Act contains tough new measures to
    makeit more difficult to discriminate against the non-abled, banning, for
    example,discriminatory interview questions such as, "Do you have any skills
    orexperience that relate to this job?"

    "Asa non-abled person, I can't be expected to keep up with people who have
    somethinggoing for them," said Mary Lou, who lost her position as a lug-nut
    twisterat the GM plant in Flint , Mich. , due to her inability to remember
    rightytighty, lefty loosey. "This new law should be real good for people
    likeme. I'll finally have job security." With the passage of this bill, I
    andmillions of other untalented citizens will finally see a light at the
    endof the tunnel.

    Saidone mid-western Senator . "As a senator with no abilities, I believe
    thesame privileges that elected officials enjoy ought to be extended to
    everyAmerican with no abilities. It is our duty as lawmakers to provide
    eachand every American citizen, regardless of his or her inadequacy, with
    somesort of space to take up in this great nation and a good salary for
    doingso."

    Dont get too worked up, plenty of laws of this nature already in place "ageism" for example. Im sorry but their are some jobs not fit for most older people but, you cant leagily draw a line. Employers will just have to justify if dummy proofing all their jobs is worth the tax break. Some jobs already have manditory promotions for senior employees.
