    i was talking to YOU

    about classical liberalism

    NEOliberalism

    and libertarianism as the perfect expression of socialism

    LOL!

    I'm glad you've become aware of that reality; perhaps you've been reading Joseph Dejacque. Regardless, it's hardly relevant to the thread, so run along now.

    More important than the unemployment rate would be an assessment of their literacy. If it is anything like the stats from some of the schools I've worked with, the majority of these young people are high school drop-outs with very limited literacy.

    Fifty years ago, they'd have been fine, but in our increasingly technological world, they're screwed.

    Re: The dead end kids: Young, unemployed and facing tough future

    This doesn't surprise me one bit. Many companies want the experience but they just don't want to be the ones who give it. And these so called older more experienced gentlemen and women who don't want to hire a college graduate because he or she has no work experience, if they were any good, then why have so many run their companies into the ground only to ask for the government to bail them out later? What is going on, is that the well connected are saving the good paying jobs for friends of friends or the children of friends or his or her own children. The direction this country is heading is ridiculous.

    dejacque?

    LOL!

    hardly representative of the classical liberalism terminology you toss around so errantly

    indeed, it's burke's break with the francophiles that defines his movement

    you aren't even comfortable with your own philology

    maybe that's why no one is ever capable of responding to what you're SAYING

    LOL!

    Re: The dead end kids: Young, unemployed and facing tough future

    Hmmm I guess onyl CC got it the main reason we don't have any good enter-level jobs are because over the oast 35+ Year the United States has let Company shut up and move the factories either to Central/South America,India,China or the Far East then send the product back tot eh United States mean while we now have ageneration of Youth who can't get a friggen good paying job and Congress and some of you can't understand why.

    Hence why I've been screaming for many year to put 100% taffifs on Textile Products/Candies/Farm Tractors etc. ect. thius would force these company's to 1 Bring back the Jobs and 2 Put Americans back to Work.

    I really have a hard time understanding how people still think this way. Free trade as a route to economic advancement is not some theory or political position - it's an indisputable fact.

    Furthermore, do you really think that's the main reason kids are unemployed nowadays? I doubt that an art history major from the New School who can't find a job in the city would be giddy at the thought of moving to milwaukee/cincinnatti/detroit to work on an assembly line for $13/hr.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Yes I do beleive one of the reason we are in this trouble is that major Industries were allowed to pick up and move out of the United States because they didn't want to pay State Employment taxs,Health Care,Fight with the Union(s) among many of the items. I grew up in the Northeast I got to watch the whole Textile Industry die and move to China/India/Central-South America and then see thos same products come back into the United States.

    Hell look at are Steel Industry/Ship Building Industry.

    Your right an Art History Major might not go to work on an assembly line but I can think of allot of 18-25 Year Old Americans that would go work on an assembly line. Oh and the last time I check most entery level assembly jobs start out around $14-16 per hour.
