    must be lonely... living in that little world all by yourself. Why not venture out and join the rest of us in what we affectionately call REALITY?

    Apaprently, with the long lines, the theory of people not willing to take jobs was more smoke than reality. Go figure.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    If McDonalds is hiring 50,000 people - good for them. I do not eat there. I would not work there. But its a start and 50,000 jobs at 8 bucks an hour is better than no jobs at zero dollars an hour.

    Having said that, there is previous little future for America as a nation of 310 million people if the only job growth is in the area where you need to say "do you want fries with that burger" or "welcome to Walmart". We cannot be a nation of minimum wage jobs with the prospect of a career in management dangled in front of us like a carrot in front of a starving person. Its not a recipe for a healthy and long term sustainable economy.

    We happen to live in a democratic republic where people vote. Many here complain that it is wrong that those who do not pay federal income taxes can vote to take away the wealth of those that do. So what are you going to do to make sure that the angry masses do not do just that? Take away their right to vote as some here fantasize about? Hardly works except in a nightmare scenario which destroys American in the process.

    As opposed to your dream, which is to have a massive voting bloc all syphening off the government welfare teet watching Judge Judy all day.

    That would be great and all, but President Obama needs to actually buy into this whole idea of "keeping jobs in the U.S.". Look at the oil industry-look at how much we are drilling in the Gulf now, how big of a deal offshore drilling was after the BP disaster (led to the moratorium on drilling). Now, instead of drilling in those areas again, he donates $2 billion to Petrobras.

    How can I tell the two kinds of jobs apart? I would like to know too.
    I may be wrong.

    Good God.

    Posts like this make me every so thankful I wasn't raised by parents with such low expectations of people. I never would have achieved what I have thus far had I been drilled for 18 years with this "you're a victim and can't accomplish anything yourself" crap.
