Wow, Just Wow! How lazy America has become! Not only that but I get so darned tired of hearing the excuse/blame on corporate greed. I too agree
that corporate America/World is an issue but in reality it isn't them that we should blame. Perhaps if Americans weren't more greedy than the
corporations, or didn't need so much useless krap for prices so low we can barely pay the sweatshop workers to make the useless items we love so
much, perhaps corporations could raise prices, hire more workers, and unemployment would drop accordingly.
That won't work though b/c not only do we have greedy corporations, we have greedier workers that are simply, as is exemplified by this thread, to
darned lazy to take a job when its offered!
On top of all of that we have a government that thinks, against all research and historical examples I may add, adding unemployment benefits or
increasing the length of time for benefits will fix the unemployment problem. We have a bunch of whining and sniffling small people who would rather
collect unemployment, sue their best friend, and watch TV, than go to McDonald's and make some hamburgers for a few months with the hope of getting
promoted or finding a better job with more pay somewhere better.
We have a country full of people who no longer feel it necessary to "Pay Their Dues" so to speak. We have a country full of people, INCLUDING THE
PRESIDENT, who would rather blame their situation on corporations or the government or Wall Street, and they keep forgetting that blaming will not
find them a job or repair the true problem. We have a country full of people who want to wait for a job to come to them instead of searching for a
I have a Masters degree in Economics and a Bachelors degree in Physics, I have strong and informed opinions and I am usually correct with my
assumptions and solutions when I am asked for them. I am supremely qualified, yet NOBODY CAME TO ME to find a job. In fact, my resume' looks GREAT
and I was turned down for over 30 jobs, all over the country before I found the position I accepted 900 miles from where I lived. If I was able to be
turned down for 30 positions but still find a job then any of you can do the same. I should also add, I never accepted unemployment benefits.
I left my brother, my 2 nephews, and in an indirect way, caused my parents to relocate away from my brother and 2 nephews as well! Its sad that I had
to move my family that far, but it means we can all choose to do so. You may not want to, and it may not be ideal, but the respectable, responsible
citizens of this ONCE great country, DO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO!
If I had waited much longer I was planning to deliver Pizzas with my Masters degree. Don't you think I am a bit over qualified for that? BUT I WAS
WILLING AND PLANNING TO MAKE THE PROPER ARRANGEMENTS! Why you may ask, well, I LIKE TO EAT and I LIKE TO GO PLACES, and I LIKE TO BUY KRAP I DON'T
BUT I LIKE TO PAY MYSELF, I DON'T LIKE FORCING AT GUNPOINT, TO MAKE OTHERS PAY FOR MY OWN CHOICES!
Believe me, we are being forced at gunpoint, its pay your unemployment benefits or go to jail for not paying my taxes, and they will arrest me with
guns drawn, make no mistake.
It really upsets me that I, with all my student loan debt and my family to feed, that I was willing to take that menial job and pay unemployment
benefits to you lazy arse people who, like the mother I love, are not even looking for a job!
I can sum this up in 11 words:
IT IS REDICULOUS HOW LAZY, NEEDY, and UNDESERVING AMERICA HAS BECOME!
What happened to the values of the WWII generation!?!?
