The US is so doomed by these lame politicians in Washington. Not one but everyone of them that failed to do their job. We should have never gotten in this mess. Unemployment will raise higher than ever as companies learn they can do more with less and as technology increases more people will be let go when a machine takes their place. The dollar is about worthless which means everything we buy cost a lot more, owning a home is now a hindrance for those that bought a home and it's worth less that it was a long time ago. So remember this at election time and vote out everyone. We might as well start fresh, and any good that will do since the damage is done for the poor and middle class.

The Iraq war pictures have to be right beside the definition of stupidity in Websters - following GW Bush's and his administration of ignorant self-righteous neo-cons - followed by the Republicans for not only voting for these unparalleled incompetents - but also the rest of us for continuing to fund this war that only benefits private gov. contractors and the politicians they continue to directly and or indirectly bribe. The American public has lost it's intelligence and it's courage. Idiot nation.

In their pockets, where the rest of the taxpayers dollars are going!!

1) If Bush Sr. had been allowed by the Dem ruled houses to do away with OBL back when; if George Bush hadn't been adamant about killing OSL regardliess of how the Dems ruling the houses thought - Obama woulld've never had the opportunity to ride to "Victory" on a borrowed horse!
2) The only thing this latest vote did was devalue the dollar more, put off the enevitable and allow this fiasco to continue on the backs of lies re: no SS pmts. What a crock. Apparently you have no idea how SS came about, what it was for or how it is funded today. Do so reading and enlighten yourself.
3) If you think $250G a year, this day and time, is wealthy, you are so uninformed. Check out the latest 'poverty level' income. I survived on that and less for years! If the cost of doing business in this country (exorbitant tax rates forced on both small and large business, thus driving practically ALL manufacturing jobs overseas) isn't changed, you will NEVER see more jobs created. The Govt. IS NOT in the business of creating jobs except for their friends (it's called bureaucracy) and you and I pay their salaries!! DUH.
The average person in this country needs to get informed. Complacency has dumbed down the masses, created a welfare state of mind in millions and will ultimately be the undoing of a once great country known as The United States of America.

the republicans cut childrens education, they cut programs that keep us and our money safe. They want to cut programs for the old.... they want to cut unions, Just maybe if they worked this hard on jobs, we would not have to cuts so much. Jobs makes revenue....PS the FAA bill is costing us jobs and money more than the bill is worth.
01:13 PM on 08/04/2011
You have got to be kidding - right?! Please tell me your comment was made just to get a rise outta someone. Who in the world convinced you that the govt. was responsible for creating jobs. Bureaucratic positions for their friends are the only jobs they are capable of or even remotely interested in creating, a YOU, dear Ms. Rainwater, pay for each and every one of their salaries every time you pay taxes. Now that should give you something truthful to ruminate on for the rest of the day.

And No Jobs = No Customers.

See the dilemma?

Unless hiring starts again people with jobs are not going to spend as much money because they know if they lose their job they will not find another one for a long time in this market. Since business won't create jobs and they have no intention or need to then it's up to the Government to pick up the slack or create an environment where companies need to create jobs to remain competitive.
01:22 PM on 08/04/2011
Right re: the hiring issue but wrong on so many levels re: businesses and jobs creation! Research the cost of doing business in this country. Very enlightening. And re: your comment about the govt. picking up the slack on job creation - really! And you heard or read where about the govt. being the business of creating jobs? How about their interest in doing so, even they could (which they can't - other than bureaucratic positions)? The part about creating an environment condusive to encourage small and large businesses to hire - I say "RIGHT ON!!" You do get it in some areas!!!

Let's talk about those millionaires, and billionaires that Obama demonizes all the time..those bad people that are paying over 75% of the taxes............

Most of them..the wealthy are new wealth created by technology and the dot.com boom like ebay, amazon, facebook, microsoft, sunmicro, apple, google....100s of people who had good ideas and worked hard to implement them. Ideas that have improved our lives.

These people are giving back in grants, and generous gifts like the $100 million Facebook gave to NJ schools or Gates gives to Africa. The rich support the ARTS, universities, hospitals, medical research the list is endless.

No other rich people in any other country any where in the world give back the way RICH AMERICANS DO. No other people send in their own money, even every day Americans when there is a crisis some where in the world...like Haiti.

Rich people are not the bad guys.

Something people don't want to remember about Bush is when he became President, and we had that Surplus instead of SPENDING IT LIKE OBAMA WOULD HAVE Bush sent out $250 to all middle class Americans that paid taxes NOT to the millionaires & billionaires......
Bush is a nice man. History is already being written about Bush being a strong leader, and a
good President. History will be as kind to Obama ....

Bush is a nice man? LOL a paltry $250 is not enough to put food on the table for a family where the Mom and Dad just lost their job due to the recession Bush himself created. Meanwhile the Bush tax cuts saved corporations and the rich billions for nearly 10 years. Wake up.

All I see in this string is JOB's The jobs are in China and other countries. American based Corporations continue to fail to keep jobs here. Their excuse is we want lower taxes and less regulation.Taxes are at the lowest since 1959. The are asking for less regulation in air, water, chemical, employee safety, and other standards, Every time I see Obama where are the jobs I think why don't we ask the corporations? I am a conservative by mature but the companies have been shipping our jobs overseas for years and then we are expected the buy the products. That is why we are a debtor nation. We produce and ship very little. Our backs are breaking and Obama did not do that in 2 years. Call it what is is. There has been a steady erosion of jobs for almost 40 years. Now everyone is yelling where are the jobs? Ask the corporations they know exactly where they are. People need to take action on the corporations.

I am unemployed. I want to work, I want real money; not token notes. But the folks inside the beltway are not doing their job. They still get paid no matter what happens. Today is the first day of a month long vacation, I doubt they will be visiting with their constituents. And this, while the FAA is calling "MAYDAY" and AMERICANS are loosing on just about every front, concern and issue that can be raised. We need to change the ways things are done, we deserve better.

Network if you can like a mad man. Believe it or not it is easier to network when you are unemployed (minus the whole not having money part but you have plenty of time).

I just got lucky and got a job recently in something I really wanted. However, this was after about 2 years of retail, customer service jobs and 6-9 months of unemployment.

It's all about who you know. If it wasn't for my references and contacts from networking in my Internship I wouldn't have got this job that I have now. I am lacking in skills somewhat for this position but my attitude will pull me through.

Folks, I don't think Bob Villa and Norm Abrams could build a ceiling like these politicos. The sad part is that they did it to a "STRAW" House.
