I thought the following was nicely done:
As we approach Passover in 2010, many people are unemployed. But in a free society, government does not create jobs.
Pharoah created jobs for us. Moses led us away from those jobs. Even though those jobs helped to complete public infrastructure. Even though they were green jobs, where we used our muscles and our backs instead of fossil fuels.
Go read the whole thing and you will understand the Exodus in a new light.
