On February 21, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton addressed the first-ever State Department Global Business Conference in Washington, D.C.

In her remarks, Secretary Clinton said, "I have made 'Jobs Diplomacy' a priority mission at the State Department, with a clear goal: Just as our companies are ready to out-work, out-innovate, and out-compete their rivals, so we intend to be the most effective diplomatic champions for prosperity and growth."

The conference brought together senior officials from U.S. business support organizations from over 100 countries; U.S. private sector executives focused on international business; and senior U.S. Government leaders from the White House, the Departments of State, Commerce, Treasury and Energy, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, the Export-Import Bank of the United States, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, and the U.S. Trade and Development Agency. Building on the President's agenda to accelerate America's economic renewal, the conference will highlight how the U.S. Government can promote U.S. businesses abroad, increase U.S. exports, attract new investment to the United States, and create American jobs.

The problem is that American businesses that grew so big, work themselves and not for America. They just let America down. That's why America fell behind.

I don't know why are failed business leaders selected to be high ranking officials in the government. Some CEOs of big banks like AIG are nominated as chairman of economic sectors of government for gambling with the hard earned income of US citizens.

So you want more jobs?

Cut taxes!

Eliminate Cabinet Agencies!

Close overseas military bases!

America has way too much government, and government jobs are the worst drain on society.

Just look at the millions of dollars blown away by politicians in travel around the world, worthless meetings, useless conferences, all of the purposes of making more speeches about "tighting our belts", or perhaps the nooses around our necks.

Most of the money spent on government should have stayed in the hands of those who earned it so they can hire others to build better businesses. When bureaucrats grab those assets, we get only more waste and more wars.

The only jobs governments can create are government jobs. The product of government is more government. Oddly, this provides an exception to the economic law of supply and demand because in theory, the price of government should decrease as the supply increases. In reality, the price of government increases as the supply increases.

Today, the price of government is at an historic peak -- so high that even the entire tax revenue of the U.S. cannot pay for it all.

In the corporate world, you would all be fired.

Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
