    So it comes back to it being the government's job to force private businesses to hire more workers...?

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    No. It comes back to government not being an impediment to the economy.

    These concept are so difficult for the liberals. But do keep trying <sigh>

    Recovery? What recovery???

    So more than 300,000 had been looking for some time but couldn't find work, and thus depressed, they stopped looking for at least the past four weeks for jobs that just aren't there, and they get removed from the unemployment rate calculation. This happens all the time. Thus the ubiquitous basic unemployment rate we're fed in the news is a contrivance that is much, much higher in reality than fictitiously presented to the public.

    Where are all the promised new jobs?

    Where are "happy days are here again", I mean the non-sarcastic happy days?

    When will someone actually do something about the mess we're in?

    Left and right, the answer is never!!!
    Only?

    There are a finite amount of jobs available in the united state.

    Perhaps 91.9% is the ceiling for full employment. People can circle in and out of unemployment, but, for better or worse we have to support a standard of living for the other 8.9%.

    I can live with that.

    The markets doing well. Corps are earning profits. Just throw the corrupt GOP and spineless DEMs out of congress and get this country on the right track by finding a pragmatic center.

    You haven't provided any evidence whatsoever to support your claim that the federal government is impeding private employment. It's a common talking point, but unfortunately that's the extent of it's use.

    It takes common sense to figure out.

    Sorry.

    Assumption or guess would be far more accurate terms.

    Thats, the issue
    I think you're using a creative definition of "socialism."

    Well, I'm right there with you on your last line here.

    I guess what concerns me is that that finite number of maximum potential jobs in the U.S. is considerably less than it would have been now had not so many jobs, especially those jobs of what came to be termed "sub-primers", disappeared overseas and the like.

    We do need to get centered on the right track again.

    Actually, it kind of is.

    There are the powerful Multi-Cultural-Internationalists on the left and the powerful Corporate Global Expanisionists on the right who don't care if mainland Americans have jobs just as long as someone has those jobs somewhere, the MCIs hoping more people from other countries can work those jobs, and the CGE's hoping tremendously cheaper labor can work those jobs whereever it can be found.

    These two political powerhouses are "cooperatively" responsible for the mess we're in.

    Until they are out of power, we cannot rationally hope for real recovery for American citizens and thus greatly America as a country.

    No.

    The government needs to get out of the way. The government needs to stop passing laws designed to create jobs. The government needs to stop the uncertainty.

    Bottom line...it's not the government's job to do ANYTHING about increasing jobs.
