    Not that tax cuts solve all problems but we did get a tax cut. I did at least.

    I will be fair about this one. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't part of that massive stimulus package supposed to put people to work on infrastructure?

    Even though work is work, if I lose my job, I'd like to think that I'll be able to do more than just road construction.

    I am better suited in the security industry (mall security), office management, or even working in customer retail. While I don't like working in a convenience store, its kept me financially afloat (mostly because of the overtime involved). My senses are also much sharper when I'm in the store.

    You'd think that the government would try to get all kinds of jobs to suit people's skills rather than focusing on one type of job.

    It is not the government's job to "create jobs."

    Both Republicans and Democrats have destroyed jobs by instituting NAFTA, CAFTA, and normal permanent trade relations with China, among others.

    Obama promised to create 2.5 million jobs during his campaign. Where are they? Why is unemployment rising?

    In a nutshell------it works like this

    The Feds dump money into a road project--------lets just say----on I-20 running through this part of the south

    A contract is let on repaving 125 miles of the west bound lanes running from the Alabama/Georgia state line to Birmingham

    125 miles------thats a lot of Asphalt----and there are literally hundreds of Asphalt companies who will be bidding

    Thats a lot of asphalt to haul-----so there will be literally hundreds of hauling companies who will be bidding

    Then theres the paving itself--------literally hundreds of paving companies will be bidding

    Hundreds of things come into consideration

    Fuel for trucks and equipment down to companies who will bid to provide "Port-O-Johns"

    On down the line

    Its not just---------"We hire one company to do the work!!!"-------hundreds of companies and tens of thousands of people come into play and lots and lots of "Doughnuts"($$$$$$$$$$$$$'s) being passed around

    Funny what I have noticed

    When the Feds provide $$$$$$$$$$'s for infrastructure-----it takes time for the system to be noticed by the public

    But when the Feds "cut" certain projects--------its noticeable that very moment

    Years ago-----I believe it was with the Reagon administration-------the Feds decided to "cut out" the B-1 Bomber--------there was a man in my church who was an engineer with some company that made certain parts that went into the bomber

    The announcement was made one day to cut the B-1 project----and the next day---he didn't have a job--------literally that fast

    Well, the other day, I had to go to the DMV, which is right next door to the Unemployment office.

    The people applying for unemployment had crowded the office so badly that they had spilled outside and were sitting on the lawn.

    I'd say Obama has made it necessary for that unemployment office to hire another eight to ten people.

    See? He's creating jobs already.

    Makes sense; in a warped sort of way!

    This is 800 more with jobs, BUT, you and I are gonna be paying their salary; not some employer that is generating income, paying the employees, paying taxes, etc.!

    Yup!! We got change all right - and with this yo-yo as pOTUS, change is all we're gonna have.

    Forget the good ole days of having to break a twenty for tip money!!!

    Opened more Planned Parenthood offices and hired more abortionists.

    The blessing in that picture is that he extended the unemployment benefits so those less fortunate will get some help to weather this storm.

    He has only had the helm 3 months. Why not give him a couple of years then ask this question?

    Let's just keep things honest...

    As Obama and his cast of characters nationalize banks, industries, and whatever else they can (that's called "Fascism" for those of you scoring at home), he will "count" those nationaized industries and their workers as "new jobs"--even though many are the same jobs & workers--they just have a new king, er, tyrant, er, boss.

    So hiring 800 new IRS agents means you won't have a twenty?

    You doing something we shouldn't know about? :thumbsup:
