“"...the Greenspan Fed pushed for a hands-off approach by regulators, who then found themselves blamed for the financial crisis that led to the most punishing economic downturn since the Great Depression."
Criminals always push for the police to take a "hands-off approach." And in America, if you're wealthy enough, it works...”
““He understood the problems ordinary people have and had a degree of sympathy for them,” Hamby said."
There's the problem. No one in Washington, including President Obama, understands the problems of ordinary Americans and furthermore, most of them, Democrat and Republican, couldn't care less. Sorry to be so cynical but this is what I'm seeing out there.”

“no , they understand, they just dont give a dam dude. Get real.”
“You simply find the key words they require for the job, create a paragraph of additional skills and then insert as many key word related skills as possible...of course, you have to arrange them so they make sense, but the reader will definitely pick up on it.
It's not a tag cloud per se, but it does mimic it in that the paragraph should be keyword dense and have the desired affect on the reader.
“Wow... this is getting more depressing by the day. I have been looking for work for only a couple of months but I'm getting nowhere. Companies don't want to have one-on-one meetings with prospective employees, they want to use computers to "weed out" anyone that isn't perfectly suited at least on paper. In the past, I have always gone to a few temp agencies, interviewed for a few minutes, left a resume and would have a job before the end of the week. Now, none of that is possible... It's very depressing.”

“I shall be rooting for you! Things are looking up! If only we could get those Republicans to budge from their sitting on their fists and kicked back on their collective thumbs.... the President has jobs programs all lined up...but it will take a whole lot of us to get the GOP to wake up and smell that cava java!!! I will leave you with this thought...my wish for you and yours.... may you all have radiant health, absolute joy, peace, wisdom and prosperity now and eternally. }B^)”
“It is nearly impossible to get a job today. My brother and I are both unemployed and have never used drugs or alcohol. He is basically homeless with no hope of finding housing. He has used up his unemployment, gets $134 per month in food stamps and has been put on medicaid but doesn't have gas money unless I give it to him and now that I've lost my job, that's not very likely to happen. Today if you want secretarial/clerical work or any type of blue collar job, you are asked to fill out an application on a website, which is then scanned by a computer, and you never get a call for an interview because there are so many people vying for the same job. I am beginning to feel hopeless and while my brother still has hope, I think he's delusional. We are both older (mid 40s and mid 50s) and I don't think either of us is going to work again, except maybe at Walmart or Burger King and that's only if we are lucky. Makes me so sad because we both want to work.”
“I wish that was true, but with gerrymandering and the Faux Noise crowd, I don't think they are in much trouble. Look at the House of Representatives! I wish you were right, but I'm not so optimistic...”
“Actually, I'm not. The news that Mexico has overtaken the USA as the most obese country is the world has been front and center over the past month. For her not to know that and to tout how healthy Mexico is shows just how uninformed she is.”
