May not be the solution he’s hoping for

(What? Nah, I chalk it up to a critical shortage in the number of times Newsom has been kicked out of office)

    The phrases ‘Fine the little ball’ and ‘Three Card Monty’ come to mind.

    Just like when they say they’re going to fire trained and experienced medical personnel ’cause they didn’t get their Covid shots and replace them with National Guard personnel. Or law enforcement personnel,

    Earth to Dems: these people don’t grow on trees. You can’t just step out into President *’s Magic Garden out behind the White House and get all the trained elves you need.

    There’s been talk around her of getting National Guard troops to drive school buses.
    Typical Dem stupidity – there’s already a shortage of people with the knowledge and skills to do many jobs out there, so they’ll activate Guard troops, people who already have full time jobs, and create more outages and shortages in necessary job slots to fill empty school bus driver slots. Besides which, most Nat’l Guard troops don’t have the proper CDL classification to legally drive a school bus.

    Then again, there are some school districts where the school bus driver probably should be armed, so maybe NG troops are a good idea, if TPTB allow them to be armed.
    Once again, given Dem stupidity, TPTB wouldn’t allow them to carry arms, even in south side Chicago. /sarc

    I can’t help but smile at the nurse stories I have read where the day after being fired for no vax, they hire on with a temp agency (at higher pay) to fill the same job with no vax mandate.

    Or vax womandate.

    Others hire on to be traveling nurses at even higher pay rates plus carpe per diem.

    Plenty of illegal immigrants available to work at the docks

    Like the comment above, you don’t just pluck someone off the streets, throw them into a semi and tell them to drive off. One has to learn or be trained to operate a big rig before heading out on the road and that takes time.

    These bolsheviks despise people in the services and at the same time think of them as fungible drones.

    You know, the help.

    ^^, yes, but, each truck driving job filled by an unqualified person creates 3 additional jobs at the NHTSA. It’ll be great.
