    Well, I spend around two months looking and found nothing. I got maybe two calls back, and neither of them actually asked me in for an interview. Everyone else straight up ignored me. Of course, I only had a high school diploma at that point, which didnt help... but so do a lot of other people looking for jobs. I also would have taken anything that had been offered, as I was desperately trying to get a place me and my girlfriend could move into. Nothing was offered. I'm glad you had better luck.

    4 adults capable of working.

These are the people my X has decided to associate with while hiding my children and cashing the child-support. You have no chance of defending my X, so please save yourself the effort.
    Nice straw man. In that situation, I'd recommend child support taking that kid away, since the parent is obviously incompetent. Now what do you think of the situation I was actually talking about, where there are simply no jobs available?

    You're kidding yourself. I can personally assure you of that, and so can several million other people who have been unwillingly unemployed.

    I've been trying to take the children away since December, the problem is she hides in crisis shelters where the sheriff's department can't even just walk up to the door. She's smart about what she's doing, that's for sure.

    The situation you were talking about was a strawman, as you were branching off of my line of discussion, not me of yours. I had stated why I hate liberals and you went from there. If you don't have a job, it's your own damn fault. I have no sympathy. It's up to you to make business cards advertising your service. It's up to you to show up at day-labor every morning at 5:30 until you get a perminant job. It's up to you to spam your resume to every business in the phone book.

    I don't ask that people take the time to make their own electronic generic applications to turn in by hand for those businesses stuck in the stone-age and still require paper apps, as I have, but you can't be selective when you're desperate.

    If nothing else, the military's hiring.

    You're still not getting it. There's about 4 people for every 1 job opening. No matter how hard people try, there will always be people who can't find work. You can't magically make jobs appear. So, if some people only look for 3 hours a day, do they deserve to be screwed over because they aren't looking 6 hours a day?

    I'd rather not say, because I DO want to see some people in this forum eradicated.

    Thanks for your honesty PSK...

    And thanks for responding within the context of this thread. Failed marriages and unemployment seems to have run over the topic for the past dozen post.

    I want to see the resurrection of a distinctly European-based, Christian Civilization. Anything and everything that suppresses that resurrection must be eradicated.

    Maybe Jerry wants to eradicate all liberals and people who don't get a job within the time-frame set by him. If everybody would just do as Jerry wants...the world would have no problems. Of course there is a good chance that about 90% of the human population would be would be eradicated who doesn't appease Jerry's wants (and demands).

    I can think of a few others throughout history who has the same aspirations and when they got the power to do what they wanted...the outcome was beyond human comprehension.

    Amazing how Marital woes and Unemployment issues found themselves to be related to the topic of this thread.

    If people don't know you personally...is it possible for one person or group to claim, say for instance, that all democrats are carbon copies of each other?
    There's actually a term for "mixed" ideologies, but danged if I can find it.

    There have been studies done, and iirc, just about everybody has a "mixed" ideology to some degree.

    The radical polarization we see today is a direct result of our two party system coupled with high tech "persuasive messaging".
