Job Preservation, Obama Style

How to Prevent Anyone from Losing His or Her Job!

By on 1.26.13 | 2:01AM

President Barack Obama spent his entire first term in office struggling with America's high unemployment rate.  Only recently did a Houston man come up with the answer:  kill any replacement worker!

Reported the Houston Chronicle:

A fired security guard charged with murder for allegedly hunting down and killing his replacement over the weekend will appear in court Tuesday.

Gregory Griffin, 56, has been charged in the death of Jose Argueta, who had recently replaced him at La Veracruzana Carniceria and Taqueria, a meat market in the 1200 block of West Road.

Griffin is accused of shooting the 38-year-old man three times in the head in front of dozens of witnesses.

It is hard to imagine a better system to protect jobs.  In fact, it is surprising that the administration didn't come with the idea.  Or at least a slightly more humane version:  just arrest anyone attempting to fill anyone else's job.  That in turn would require hiring more cops and prison guards, making their unions happy as well!
