    To think that many don't is naive. When you don't have incentive to work and get paid to do little many take advantage of that. That is reality, Mr. Very Liberal.

    That sounds like a structural problem honestly. Which is why they are protesting, why exactly do people need to get an education to wait tables? What's the incentive? Why take on student loan debt for a low paying job?

    There's a lot of large issues looming in the country and honestly the Tea Party and Conservatives seem to think ignoring them is the solution. As of right now, our economy and job markets resemble 1930 more than they do 1975. Call me naive but I think 1930's solutions are needed instead of 1980 Reaganomics.

    Ok so what do you suggest we do differently to provide incentive for people that are out of work?

    I heard something interesting on the radio (or an interesting idea which I have always thought of as a good one). We shouldn't just say "Raise taxes on the rich. (Period)" or "Cut government spending. (Period)" rather it should be a mix of the two. Sounds familiar, oh, Obama's 3:1 deal.

    However, there is still much pressure from both parties now to cut our most wasteful spending, our bloated military spending (that is almost as much as the rest of the world combined) and our optional wars, and to increase revenue by eliminating tax breaks for the wealthiest. The FICA cap will have to be raised to make SS solvent for the long term, and we will eventually have to go to a single payer system, as the rest of the industrialized world has done to get our health care costs under control. We see the people in the streets now demanding these things become priorities.
    Obama's plan called for a trillion dollars in spending over the next decade. When the United States is bringing in $2 trillion a year but spending $4 trillion, this 'budget cut' is nowhere adequate to get the country back into healthy financial shape. It might be good politics to make these sorts of claims but they are not doing the country any good. Sharp cuts must be made or reality will make them.

    People who are out of work need incentive?

    Hereare snippets from a book of "Impressions & Observations" ofSecretService personnel assigned to guard U.S. Presidents/First Ladies, and Vice
    Presidents.

    Notice the difference according to the Secret Service? Your support for Obama is misguided. He is a true community agitator
    What's the name of that book? I'd like to check that out for myself because my hunch is that you're simply pasing along more bull**** you got in yet another bull**** email.
