I don't know if this is justice or Karma!

While the Glen Beck "Honor America March" was happening in Washington and Al Sharpton was trying to wrench attention towards HIS cause, Jesse Jackson decided to stay in Detroit for a rally for "The Green Job" market...
The rest is in the Detroit paper:

The Detroit News reports that in promoting the march, Rev. Jackson wrote that "Home-grown American labor will be installing windmills and solar panels. A green economy is not an abstract concept." Oblivious of the actual cost in terms of federal subsidies and the loss of good paying jobs in the real energy sector, Jackson continued. 

"Even now, the only sector of the economy that has seen job growth during the recession is the green job sector. Time is of the essence."

(Actually, time long ago passed Detroit by because Jesse’ favored government mpg mandates and UAW wages stripped the Big Three’s ability to compete against non-union transplants. These jobs were real – unlike the artificial, government subsidized green jobs he shakes down the feds for today.
Real jobs produced big, profitable SUVs like the one Jesse prefers to ride in. His SUV has been stripped by thugs – a fitting metaphor for what Jesse and his pals have done to the auto industry for the last 35 years.  From: Henry Payne, editor of The Michigan
While Rev. Jackson was busy marching and telling his "green jobs" fairy tale, he was also contributing to the local economy in a very personal way. The good Reverend's fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly Cadillac Escalade was stolen by local entrepreneurs who removed the wheels from the luxury SUV, no doubt for resale at some future date. This may not qualify as a job created, but there can be no question that lives were touched.
 Now that's stimulus you can believe in!
