Jerry Brown's green jobs fantasy

A guy who has spent 40 years in government -- interrupted by an occasional Buddhist sabbatical here and there -- doesn't know squat about how to create jobs.  But like a typical career politician, Jerry Brown is perfectly at ease making ridiculous claims, like his announcement Tuesday that he has a plan to create 500,000 green jobs.

Any jobs this plan creates will be government jobs.  And Brown's benefactors at SEIU will demand a big piece of the action.  Moonbeam's imaginary 500,000 green jobs won't materialize any more than Barack Obama's promise of gazillions of green jobs materialized.
