In announcing some annual celebration of work through the Department of Labor, drug czar John Walters notes:
75 percent of the nation‰s current illegal drug users are employed.
So much for Pete’s couch.
Thanks, John, for taking the time to acknowledge the contributions that drug users are making every day to save the economy that your administration has destroyed.
(Another thing that’s inspiring about that number — since the drug czar keeps saying that young people are the ones using drugs, then young drug users must be particularly motivated to be getting jobs at an early age.)
Drugs: motivating the young to work at real jobs that don’t have “czar” in the title.
