Actually, I noted in the tinyass backwoods brokeass community I live in that crappy jobs are starting to become more available now. Still incredibly bad, but better than say, 6 months ago.
As sad as that is, millions more Americans are losing pay and benefits and/or are underemployed... Countless families barely living paycheck to paycheck, millions are one maybe two lost paychecks away from losing everything.
Don't be so quick to judge the unemployed... evaluate your personal situation and see how many paychecks you are away from being homeless.
I think that some in this thread have shown a sickening mentality. What it is I believe is a detachment from the reality of the situation. What I want these people to do is, if they feel it's so damn easy to get a job, try it. Go out and put your resume in at various businesses and see how far you get. Imagine that your fortunate enough to get an unemployment check, (live off of 60-70%) of your income during this period. And look for a job. Pretend that you are unemployed and you want off of the government dole.

It is easy to talk smack because there is nothing to it, you don't need a brain and don't even have to walk your own talk. This argument really highlights all the arguments, people are not worth the skin they're in and its not my problem.
ALL ABOUT THE FLAG
NOT SO BIG ON THE PEOPLE
by the way....
I bet for the amount of money they've spent so far bailing out the too big to fails and "stimulating" the economy, they could have paid every mortgage owned in the country to begin with and we'd be on our road to recovery for real!!!
