    That won't do anything. Start hammering and chastising our corporations for hiring a billion Indians to talk you through our electronic issues or telemarketing dreams and the government would be providing the needed jobs.

    How's that going to restore all those oilfield and mining jobs? You got 18 y/o's making entry level salaries of 40 g's a year, working six months out of the year. Those guys aren't interested in some 15 grand a year telemarketing job.

    There aren't many industries in this country where a kid can walk into a 40K+ a year job, right out of high school.

    Then they go jobless. The reason we have so much exported job positions is that some Americans think they are too good to work the jobs that are available and favor whining about what doesn't exist while in the unemployment line. We aren't the French. 18 y/o's have had it better than they should. Weren't they just in High School? 40Gs a year is rediculous.

    Corporations may be guilty of exporting for cheaper labor, but some Americans also share in the blame.

    Well, as harsh as it is, it is the answer. If the job isn't there, then find a new job. People who have spent years and years developing actual careers do it all the time. And 18 year olds should be flipping burgers and handing me Whoppers anyway.

    Or hell....enlist.

    Oh, yeah, no jobs is a good thing. That's going to bring the economy back, rolling like a juggernaut.

    What about that 25 y/o that just ETS'ed? Think he might deserve a good paying job?

    How can you create a job market where every 18 y/o, upon graduation day, has nothing more to look forward to than a minimum wage, part time job doing sh*t work?

    I sounded like such a Libbos with that last comment.

    I didn't say no jobs. I said take a job that is there.

    The point I'm making, is that there are more workers than jobs. A young man that has enough gumption to trip pipe certainly has what it takes to flip burgers, but there are fewer burger flipping jobs than there are workers available to fill them. How does it work when a 26 y/o driller, with all his experience, goes to McDoogles, or Burger Doodle and can't get hired, because he's over qualified? What about that 25 y/o Marine who is seperated from the service, after spending his entire time as an infantryman, tanker, or gun bunny? He has to get out and flip burgers, because there's nothing to blow up? That's what happened to me, after 12 years as an infantryman. I went to drive trucks for a living. I migrated my way to a driving job that makes some damn good money, but now you tell me that I shouldn't be able to make that money.

    It just ain't like that in the real world, man.

    Re: Obama Gives Billions for Offshore Drilling But Not Here

    What some libbies here lie about is the amount of oil existing off our coast borders. Larger fields are being discovered constanlty. Chevron, Anadarko, Murphy, Shell, Exxon, BP, Kerr McGee, to name a few are all working the Gulf coast. So contrary to what called liberal psychic on this thread babbles about offshore drilling techology is concentrated on drilling "depths" as we are discovering new methods to seek out oil at greaters depths than previously thought possible.
    The illegal immigrant president is pushing to take back as many oil leases as possible from American companies in the Gulf Coast so under the laws governing this our oil companies are outfoxing the traitor by punching holes in as many sections as possible so they can legally refuse him the abilty to shut down their work for lack of activity. Once oil companies do that O-bla-bla can't touch them.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    yeah...by having the export bank loan money to a country that will buy US goods and Services increasing demand for US labor adding money to US corporate coffers and then having that country pay back the export bank with interest.....

    Huh, by increasing exports and demand for US goods, BO is out to kill America's economy.
