Caine gets my vote for sure . everybody has a chance to become something if you choose not to then you have made the choice live with it. Don't bring everybody down to your level to make you feel better. By the way I just got a promotion and pay raise not to mention I get to move into a lot nicer lab with an unlimited budget.

Id like to know what country this person is living in. My wife has been seeking a job in her field for over a year now. She has extremely extensive experience, and had atleast 100 interviews. You want to know the real reason she hasn't gained employment? Its not because she's unqualified...

Its because in her field they've extensively cleaned house for the long term employees so they can hire young blood in at cheaper pay! They would rather train someone with no experience, then pay for someone that knows the field.
So, what you're saying is she refuses to work in any field aside from the one she was trained for, and then only if they meet her salary requirements. Did I understand you correctly?

This doesn't show a lack of jobs, just a lack of the type of jobs she's looking for. If you both were hungry enough, and had a lot of bills to pay, she'd do whatever type of work that was available like millions of others in this country do everyday.


This isn't just happening to her, its happening all across the country! If I hadn't had a substantial enough income, it would have been our home taken as well.
It's a good thing you had plenty of resources to fall back on unlike many others, otherwise you're wife wouldn't have the luxury of being quite so selective about her employment options.


Id like to see this person come here to nevada where we have the highest unemployment and highest forclosure rates and tell theses poor people that lost their homes a have gone years now without jobs that its their fault because they're all lazy!

You make me sick...
If their situation is similar to your wife's, and they're actually choosing not to work, I'm sure he'd be glad to.

A Star for you, good Phenomium, for illustrating the answer to your own question, the question that is on everyone’s lips at one point or another, yet the answer always appears so elusive; how can we act, when the rules are designed to aid in our oppression? If the game is designed to keep you out of the loop, designed to blind you from the truth, designed to make you fear those in power, then the answer is simply… change the game.
Do you think Jefferson, Washington, Adams, or any of those other chaps in the stylish powdered wigs would have stood a chance against George and his iron fist, by playing by his rules? They were but a thorn in his monarchal side, waiting to be plucked. No, the game had to be changed all together, but the victory would not come by these men of distinction alone, it would come from the everyman whom side stepped ranks, breaking the rules of engagement of the times in order to steal a victory from the superior British arms. A victory insured by men like Francis Marion who utilized guerrilla tactics against the open combat of the Redcoats. Men who saw, as the Founding Fathers saw, that the world that was presented to them was a fallacy, a ruse designed to hide the truth from every man, woman, and child who live and die to uphold this lie, the lie that you have no power.
You’re afraid of the American army, which is made up of Americans. How many of you (reading this) men of uniform would raise a rifle to a fellow Man of the Colors for the sake of appeasing your superiors? Would you recognize injustice if faced with it, and better still would you have the courage to act against misguided leadership?
Do not fear the machine that feeds the game. We are each a cog in the function of this country, and one broken cog can potentially bring the whole bloody mess to a screeching halt. I am sure they will label us treasonous, dissenters, and terrorists, labels that are designed to divide this nation, to make it go to war with itself, to instill more fear to fuel their campaign for dominance, but once you understand their rules, you will see that their ammunition that you’re so afraid of is but a crutch, a handicap in their game. Remove that crutch and their towering power will collapse under its own asymmetrical existence.
Don’t fear the game, especially when you hold all the cards. Don’t fear the players who appear to possess all of the necessary tools to insure victory. There is no stronger weapon than the human spirit. Some will fall to bring about this change, but change we must. We can live as slaves, or we can die freed men. The choice is yours, and your alone.

Can you provide a link documenting your claim? I was under the impression that insider trading is illegal no matter who you are. Nonetheless, you're narrowing your focus on one isolated area. So you can't cheat your way to instant billions in the markets like the corrupt politicians. Would you even want to if you could? There's plenty of other opportunities out there and people are creating new ones for themselves all the time - even without cheating and corruption.

If you're really set on making money in the markets, here's an idea... learn how to trade them legally. Plenty of people do just that and make fortunes. It's a lot harder. But why do people shy away from hard work? Why do they always want the get rich quick scheme? I agree there's lots of corruption that lets many people make obscene amounts of money that they have no right earning, but the point was, instead of wasting time worrying about all that right now, take advantage of the opportunities you do have. This is still America, not communist China. If your in a bad situation you can change it. If you don't, and you just sit there and try to lay blame on anyone or anything else, you're just selling yourself short. You're saying you're not good enough to overcome a challenge and win, even though others could. That's not how you were designed as a human, it's how you were programed. Successful people find solutions and win. Plain and simple.

My guess is that people who get so upset over the wealthy and all that are simply jealous of them and don't understand how to take advantage of what this county was founded on. We've strayed a long ways from where we came. When this country was started no one had jobs. They all were small business owners and responsible for themselves. You seriously can't really think that any one person or entity is responsible for your lack thereof? People come from nothing and get rich in this country constantly. It's called hard work, persistence, ambition, etc. No one is using a secret set of rules to hold you back and there's no reason you can't get ahead playing by the rules. I like a good conspiracy but that one just doesn't fly. Once you realize that you have the same opportunities the elite has and you can make as much or as little money as you want, and you understand the basic principles on how to get there, it's pretty much impossible to be angry at them, with the exception of the handful of bad apples that are trying to control everything. I hope more people can eventually distinguish between the two.

How can one guy get away with calling hundreds of thousands of people all over the United States, "Anti-American?" That is nonsensical.

What a shock, another minion for the banksters.

I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that Hermain Cain was the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

Though I am confused about what the Occupy Wall Streeters actually want. No one seems to know.

Heres what they should be demanding:

1. End the debt based monetary system which ensures perpetual debt slavery.

2. Repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.

3. Abolish the IRS.

4. Support a President who will sign a budget only if it slashes the insane spending which results in inflation and one who will NOT sign any bills bailing out the banks unlike both Bush and Obama.

Qui Est In, Qui Est Out
Insider trading is restricted but not entirely forbidden



Just what constitutes the “bad” kind of insider trading? This is generally understood to be trading on information originating within a company that could have a material effect on the share price had it been publicly known. The law applies not only to insiders—employees and directors—but also to any outsiders to whom inside information is disclosed.

As precise as this definition may sound, it rests on some very shaky concepts. First, the source of a particular piece of information isn’t always clear. Second, how is materiality established? Suppose a firm is expected to win a particular contract and an insider learns that it has been lost. If the contract amounts to 1 percent of a firm’s annual revenue, is that material? Ten percent? And how is a defendant supposed to establish that a particular fact was “widely known” at some particular time?


When the Markets elite does it, is ok for the rest is illegal sad but true.


We see that insider-trading regulations are subjective and arbitrary, rivaling antitrust laws in this respect. It is no wonder that Congress never defined insider trading and that the SEC resisted defining it for many years; the courts have had to make up the rules as cases arose. Every so often someone like Martha Stewart is thrown to the lions, drawing cheers from the jealous and spreading fear to successful and therefore high-profile managers.


Remember the fall guy they made of Martha Stewart.

You will never see names like Soros or Buffet been thrown to the lions and never will.


Vagueness and subjectivity make insider trading well-nigh impossible to police. Difficult as it is to decide whether a particular transaction violated the rules, it is impossible to police nontrading. What if an insider had planned to sell but, having heard inside good news, decides to hold instead? Insider gains from such inaction could be very real but impossible to detect or punish.

Ok well what I'm reading is it's not legal, that is there's no law specifying that particular individuals are legally able to partake in insider trading while others can't. Just that it can be hard to detect and certain people have a better chance at getting away with it. If I'm wrong please let me know. Otherwise that's just more corruption. I hold a high position in the government so I can get away with breaking a law that a normal citizen can't? Wrong. Of course we know it happens and it's the main problems we have in this country - corruption and injustice by the only ones with the power to regulate it. But ultimately that shouldn't have any affect on someone's ability to go look for a job, start a business or trade the markets legally and make lots of money with them.

That is the key, it is bad and no fair also is ethically wrong, but it happens, as usual only those on the top do it and get away with it.

Martha Stewart as an example was just a small fish among the sea, is higher ups with more pulls.

Wow, way to manipulate what I said!

I never said she wouldn't take a job outside her field.. in fact she's interview with local grocery stores for something as simple as a bagging job and they've blatently told her they would not hire her because they felt she was over qualified.

And are you really asking for sources on how the unemployment rates are!?! Turn on the f@*#ing news at any given time...oh wait, your watching fox!

Actually, protesting against the folks in charge is the most American of all things that anyone could do.

The ability to do this is written into the Declaration of Independence. Check out my signature for the full quote.

This can be applied to business as well as Government.

Actually, I'd say he has a pretty good chance. FOX News are starting to tout him as the nominee. Once the FOX News Republican faithful start to listen, he will increase past Perry and Romney in the polls.

Even Bill O'Reilly is predicting that this guy will be the nominee.

Now I like him even less.


I liked him at one point, but he has said a few haphazard things to give me pause for doubt. I really dislike O'Reilly, so if O'Reilly is endorsing him, then my vote is entirely lost.

Still support the guy in my siggy though!!!
