I'm so glad to see that the Republicans are focused like a laser beam on job creation.

So focused that in addition to empowering the IRS (which they used to hate, what happened?) to conduct audits of the uteri of American women, they now want to go to the mat to re-affirm "In God We Trust" as our national motto:

The US House of Representatives will have a chance to vote on a resolution to affirm the phrase "In God We Trust" as the nation’s official motto after it was approved by the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Congressman J. Randy Forbes (R-VA), the founder and chairman of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, sponsored the legislation. It would encourage the public display of the motto in all public buildings, public schools and government institutions.

He said he introduced the bill in January because he was troubled by a pattern of omitting God from the nation's heritage.

"There is a small minority who believes America does not have the right to trust in God, who believes the United States should not affirm trust in God, and who actively seek to remove any recognition of that trust," Forbes said.

And once they do that, jobs will magically appear, right? Because all the Great White Alpha Male in the Sky wants is to have this silly motto re-affirmed, and he will create jobs.

But wait. I thought rich people created jobs. Now I'm confused....

Isn't the Congressional Prayer Caucus in itself a violation of the separation of church and state?
