If people are willing to do a job, no matter how dangerous, pointless or dehumanizing, the government has no business stopping them. (5:21)

(LAUGHTER)

FOLKS, I'M NOT SURPRISED

THERE ARE A LOT OF ANGRY

PEOPLE OUT THERE.

AMERICA IS STUCK IN A JOBS

CRISIS.

IT'S GOTTEN SO BAD THAT THIS

WEEKEND I DROVE BY HOME

DEPOT AND PICKED UP A

CARPENTER, A LANDSCAPER AND

A GASTROENTEROLOGIST.

BEST $10 COLONOSCOPY I EVER

HAD.

GRACIAS.

(LAUGHTER)

WELL, FINALLY, FOLKS, THERE

WAS A SIMPLE WAY TO GET

AMERICANS BACK TO WORK AND

IT IS THE SUBJECT OF

TONIGHT'S WORD.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

LOOK OUT FOR THE LITTLE GUY.

OF COURSE PRESIDENT OBAMA

THINKS THAT SPENDING TAX

DOLLARS TO REBUILD ROADS AND

BRIDGES WILL PUT PEOPLE BACK

TO WORK.

BUT FOLKS, THE REPUBLICANS

KNOW THAT TO PUT PEOPLE BACK

TO WORK, YOU DON'T WANT TO

BUILD BRIDGES AND ROADS.

YOU HAVE TO TEAR DOWN SOME

WALLSNESS WE HAVE TO REDUCE

ONEROUS REGULATIONS WITHIN

WE'VE GOT TO GET RID OF A

LOT OF THESE REGULATIONS.

>> WE'D LOVE TO SEE A

MORATORIUM ON FEDERAL

REGULATIONS WHICH ARE COMING

OUT BY THE THOUSANDS,

COSTING BUSINESSES BILLIONS

AND BILLIONS OF JOBS.

>> Stephen: OF COURSE

BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF

JOBS IS RIDICULOUS.

SO LET'S SAY JUST ONE

BILLION.

WITH 300 MILLION AMERICANS,

THAT'S THREE AND A THIRD

JOBS FOR EVERYONE.

AND REGULATIONS-- REGULATIONS

HAVE NEVER CREATED A SINGLE

JOB.

BUT LACK OF REGULATION

CREATES PLENTY.

CASE IN POINT.

THE JOB CREATING PROPOSAL BY

REPUBLICAN FLORIDA STATE

REPRESENTATIVE RICH WORKMAN.

OBVIOUSLY THE MAN TO CREATE

JOBS, IT'S RIGHT THERE IN

HIS NAME, WORKMAN, NOT TO

MENTION, RICH.

(LAUGHTER)

WORKMAN HAS A BOLD

REGULATION CUTTING SOLUTION

TO THE JOB CRISIS.

>> IT'S CALLED DWARF TOSSING.

FLORIDA OUTLAWS THIS

PRACTICE TO HELP KEEP LITTLE

PEOPLE FROM GETTING HURT.

BUT ONE FLORIDA LAWMAKER

SAYS THE LAW SHOULD ACTUALLY

BE REPEALED.

>> WHETHER YOU APPROVE OF

DWARF TOSSING OR NOT,

FLORIDA SHOULDN'T BE TELLING

LITTLE PEOPLE WHAT THEY

CAN'T DO, ACCORD-- ACCORDING

TO STATE REPRESENTATIVE RICH

WORKMAN.

>> Stephen: YES, DWARF

TOSSING.

NOW I APOLOGISE IF ANYONE'S

OFFENDED.

I'M SURE THERE IS A MORE PC

TERM.

OF COURSE, DWARF TOSSING IS

THE SPORT OF KINGS WHEREIN A

LITTLE PERSON PUTS ON A

HELMET AND IS HURLED BY A

FRAT GUY HAMMERED ON YAUINGER

SHOTS INTO A SOILED

MATTRESS.

YOU KNOW, FULL EMPLOYMENT.

OF COURSE THE LITTLE PEOPLE

OF AMERICA SAY THAT DWARF

TOSSING CAN LEAD TO

PSYCHOLOGICAL DANGERS AN

PARALYSIS.

AND HOLLYWOOD HAS BEEN

LOBBYING AGAINST IT FOR

YEARS.

EVEN REPRESENTATIVE WORKMAN

AGREES THAT DWARF TOSSING IS

WRONG.

>> I'M OFFENDED BY T I GET

IT, MI TOO.

IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH

WHETHER OR NOT I THINK IT'S

A COOL THING TO DO.

THE REALITY IS I THINK IT'S

RIDICULOUS.

HOWEVER, IT'S NOT THE ROLE

OF GOVERNMENT TO SAY IT

SHOULDN'T BE DONE.

>> Stephen: EXACTLY.

WORKMAN THINKS IT'S

OFFENSIVE AND RIDICULOUS BUT

IT'S NOT THE GOVERNMENT'S

PLACE TO REGULATE IT.

WHEN JOBS ARE AT STAKE, THAT

DECISION SHOULD BE MADE BY A

MORE TRUSTED GROUP.

BAR OWNERS WHO NEED A THEME

NIGHT TO REPLACE WINGS AND

BOO B'S WEDNESDAY.

BECAUSE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

FLORIDA'S DWARF TOSSING BAN

IS FOG BUT A JOB KILLER.

AS WORKMAN TOLD "THE PALM

BEACH POST", ALL THAT IT

DOES IS PREVENT SOME DWARVES

FROM GETTING JOBS THEY WOULD

BE HAPPY TO GET IN THIS

ECONOMY.

YES, DWARVES WOULD BE HAPPY

TO HAVE THESE JOBS.

I'M SURE THE ONLY REASON

PETER DINKLAGE IS ON GAME OF

THRONES IS BECAUSE HE

COULDN'T GET A GOOD JOB

BEING CHUCKED AT A WALL.

AND-- I BELIEVE-- I BELIEVE

THAT REPEALING THIS BAN

WOULD BE A MASSIVE JOB

CREATOR.

JUST LOOK AT THE PROJECTED

GROWTH.

I SAY IF SOMEONE IS WILLING

TO DO A JOB, NO MATTER HOW

DANGEROUS, POINTLESS OR

DEHUMANIZING IT IS, THE

GOVERNMENT HAS NO BUSINESS

STOPPING THEM.

I MEAN IN THIS ECONOMY-- IN

THIS ECONOMY, FOLKS, SHOULD

WE REALLY BE STOPPING PEOPLE

FROM HOLDING GLADIATOR BUM

FIGHTS OR REDHEAD RODEOS,

WHERE COWBOYS ON HORSEBACK

LASSO AND HOGTIE GINGERS.

OR SHOULD WE REALLY, WITH

UNEMPLOYMENT AT 9.4%, BAN

BABY JUGGLING OR ALBINO

PAINT BALL HUNTING OR EATING

SUSHI OFF THE COMATOSE.

THE POINT IS, THE ECONOMY

TODAY IS BAD.

AND IF YOU ARE'S NOT WILLING

TO TOSS TAX DOLLARS AS A

PROBLEM THEN THE ONLY THING

LEFT TO TOSS IS HUMAN

DIGNITY.

AND THAT'S
