    Unemployed has stayed the same but underemployed hasn't and this is the problem!

    It's no different than it has ever been for educated people. You graduate, get a crap job while earning exp, then get a better job.

    Do you believe the hard core unemployed require less government/taxpayer largess than those who work?

    I suppose since the NSA is spying on all Americans now, that local governments are tracking our every move with cameras, what could possibly go wrong with a national identity card? We already have that by the way. The social security account number only needs a picture and a bar code on our wrist and we can enter Utopia. Forward Comrads!

    Do you have a degree in something worthwhile? It is not enough to have a degree. It really, really helps to have a skill someone is willing to pay for.

    Did you notice that the Marxist has not improved things with his policies? Do you still blame Bush for the failure of Democratic policies and state-run media claims that we were in a recession while the economy was actually doing very well?

First pro-life legislation - abortion facility regulations - in 22 years, done. Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done."

    And btw, how would you know the right side of anything?
    Are you familiar with the concept of wisdom?

    Why are you so afraid of legitimate elections?

    It is very hard work to be on the wrong side of nearly every issue. I do understand.

    Come to the right side. Life is much better when you do things because they are right to do instead of the wrong things that move the nation into a hard tyranny.

    How about lowering tax rates on all businesses? In fact lower them so that they are the lowest among the top 20 nations. Then others will send their businesses to the US.

    We are no longer a free nation. We are not even in the top few.

    So, would you say that the Walmart worker with a degree represents the majority of Walmart workers? Or is this unusual? I do know there has been a recession although it seems to have been longer than 2009. You mean it's not over yet? If I go to MacDonalds for lunch today I'll be served by a college graduate?
