    I'm not sure what this refers to, but if it had to do with employment, jobs went up after Bush the tax cuts.



    I certainly have not said that the American people are stupid. Beyond that, I don't understand your comment.



    If there were legitimate needs for the government to hire people, it would not be a bailout. I have no idea how you have read into anything I have said that would lead you to believe that I favor handouts in providing government jobs.



    Not doing well since the financial mess hit.



    It won't as long as progressives/liberals stand in the way. Reagan, Bush, and Bush did not attempt what I am talking about.



    Apparently, Americans prefer Japanese and South Korean cars. Don't look at me with that regards. I buy American.



    I said it first.



    I agree. We need a President who knows how to create jobs.



    I've already commented on this.



    Okay.



    And avoiding excessive taxes and regulations.



    Be my guest. Question them. You might learn why they do it.



    True.



    I don't recall saying anything about the Constitution in this discussion, but now that you bring it up, many things the Federal Government does is unconstitutional and possibly so is the Patriot Act. Donh't you want to follow the Constitution?



    Sorry, you lost me on this one. A city, county, or state government has the authority to enact legislation to ban smoking in certain areas. That falls under the Tenth Amendment. As for the No Solicitors sign, I have no problem with the Federal Government doing that. Of course, the going out of business sale should be going on at the same time.



    Well, many Americans do work for Mercedes, Honda, & BMW.



    I take it you do not own a home. Yes, the property taxes are paid to the state.



    Sorry, but you lost me again with this one.



    Can you tell me which President ended taxes for companies and slashed regulations? Answer: None.



    Worldwide.



    Technology, for one. The rest I have previously answered.



    I'm with you on creating jobs. It appears that we are miles apart on how to create jobs.

    If at first you don't succeed try try again, McCain as was Palin was idiots then and remain so today.

    Neither was the program I offered by Bush, or Obama.

    In 1999 America had a small surplus in 2008 America was 3 trillion dollars in debt so those jobs must have went overseas cause the tax revenue dropped , the bailouts, not to mention a little thing called Real estate that bottomed out
    No person would have quit their job in 2000, job security left after the nafta crap passed..

    So outsourceing had nothing to do with the current financial mess???

    American prefer JOBS to buy American if not, Well their jobs is going overseas why not their money as well
    How many American factories in America compared to Japanese, How many American factories in China compared to Japanese factories here? #1 car seller Hyundia Japanese. Coincedence?

    Presidents don't create jobs corporations create jobs, or they used to.
    That's how I read into your legitiment means for the government to hire people backdoor bailout.
    If corporations want consumers furnish jobs if not good luck.

    Without excesive tax the American government would have no money to bailout corporations , oh that's right they don't anyway.

    I don't have to question the management of corporations I already know why and how .
    Why GREED
    How CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS.

    I'D LOVE TO FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION AND DECLARATION especially this part LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, one can not be happy whatching his job go overseas, but one can not be happy whatching black ink turn to red either. which will happen.

    I think Politicians could survive without lobbyist or no bid contracts.

    If an American worker is working for an American auto company and he loses his job his house to outsourceing and a foreign company hires him where do you think his loyalty will be the ones that furnish a job and money or the ones that let him go?

    Working on buying one now I've owned and sold 3 homes 4 trailers.

    Ah I'm disappointed you don't know Lincoln's speech a house must be UNITED , "FOR A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST ITSELF CAN NOT STAND" he was talking about America for America had become divided by the civil war.
    Today America is becoming divided once more top and bottom, America can not stand this way either


    Wrong Andrew Jackson at one time America was free of debt , the only president to do so, look it up.


    What's complicated about creating jobs . negoiate with workers on an acceptable price and hire people.
    It's not rocket science., it's been done before
    FYI It seems each time I respond to you your post gets longer, so I didn't respond to all paragraphs

    That you have a bash the rich swarm is amusing-I could do the same massive quote thing with You and every member of the hate the rich posse.
    LOL! You just don't stop the whine do you? Poor, poor, pitiful rich people, have sympathy on how hard they have been having it. Boo-hoo, I am all torn up.

    We the people have that power through the vote to do that, perhaps in a few more hundred years, we will eventually figure that out.

    No, of course not, no one here has ever referred to the middle class and seniors as parasites sucking on the government teat. Evidently in a class war, it is not expected by some that those under attack fight back. We will see how the strategy of the GOP to go after the middle class and seniors plays out in the next election.

    When people act like parasites I call them parasites. If you don't want to be called a parasite stop being one. The problem this country has is your plans has made them parasites against their will. Now they sit back expecting things from other people as if they deserve it. I feel sorry for the middle class and the poor because they have you on their back trying to make them feel weak.

    I'll keep this response short. Could you enumerate exactly what you would do to end companies going abroad and how you would bring down unemployment in the U.S.? Thanks.
