    Unemployment is a poor excuse for the lazy.

    When the unemployment rate is at 4%, yeah.

    Oh how cute... The U-6 has surfaced on a day when leading economic indicators have been quite solid. I highly doubt we'll see anything about the natural rate of unemployment.
    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.

    Very creative with the personal attack, but a personal attack nonetheless. Reported.

    There's always the Military, McDonald's, Contracting agencies where you can work McDonald's overseas. You can start your own business, (97% of the Economy is Small Business), go to school to get a degree (on the Government's dime no less!). There are jobs out there. Before I moved I had two jobs, one cleaning carpets and one at a coffee shop. Each job took me less than a month to get and I kept them amidst other, lazier, employees getting laid off.


    The Unemployment rate shouldn't be this high, period. No matter who's fault it is. If my ill-motivated ass can get two jobs, then almost anyone can get a job.

    Ha.... Are you aware of what constitutes cyclical unemployment?

    That's why I listed mostly businesses that have a high employment/turnover rate regardless of how the economy is doing. It's not hard to get or keep a job at McDonalds, and guess what, it's a stepping stone. People in this country feel like they're entitled and they aren't entitled to jack ****. You have to WORK to make money to spend to boost the economy. no amount of government stimulus is going to do the work that can best be done by someone who goes out, works, and then spends that money in the economy. But whatev, I'm no econ major.


    Do you have a job?

    Nobody employee's me if that is what you are asking, although i am not worried about obtaining unemployment

    My issue is this: if a family of 4 loses it's primary source of income McDonald's or the military is kinda out of the question.
