Not according to the media and the Democrats they make it sound as if nearly every American is unemployed, if so

Every day I go to work and I see the millions of people (unemployed) in their new and fairly new cars blocking the highways (gridlock) for hours, and around 4:00 PM these same millions get back in their cars and block the highways again, headed to their new homes, and not so new homes that are being built on every available inch of ground there is. These thousands of new sub-divisions are eating up farmland at an incredible rate.

I travel and I find the same thing going on in every city I go to. Gridlock on the highways, and homes in every price range being built as if there was no tomorrow.

Strip malls and major malls, restaurants and office buildings, major road construction for the burgeoning cities. When will it all end?

All those millions of unemployed sure have this economy jumping---and when I take the family out to eat Its always a two hour wait to get in---all them darn unemployed people clogging up the highways and then they have the nerve to go out and eat at the hundreds of new fancy restaurants that pop up every month, and making me wait in line!

I dont like to shop at the malls but now and then the wife talks me into it---its insane all them darn unemployed are at the malls---spending money----where are they getting all this money? Malls must be making money because I see massive malls going up all over the place---and people filling them, are alien (UFOs) behind this? Dropping people off with lots of money to spend into our cities?


PSIn the last three years under Bush according to the homebuilders association, more than six million units of housing have been built and sold, and the demand in some places can not be met.

This year over two million housing units are or will be under construction. Commercial construction will add billions of square feet to the American landscape this year.


We need to do something about all this unemployment before America runs out of land to build on!

Perhaps the Democrats have not been truthful about the state of the economy.

Visit any City in America, large and small, and you will find thousands of new homes, new shopping malls, new businesses, new apartment buildings, new highways, rebirth and revitalization of old neighborhoods, New schools, new infrastructure, new skyscrapers. There is so much activity going on in American that there in not enough qualified people to do all the work that is needed.

Can the economy get much hotter?

This is the most ignorant post I have ever seen on ATS. It's the people you don't see that make up the large percent of the population.. you are accounting for hundreds of people out of millions.. The majority of money in this country is in the hands of a very small percent of the population. You see those people because you are ONE OF THEM.

I have never wanted to slap someone so hard in my life before but right now you could really use a reality check!

There is no shortage of ignorance on this post, yours included. Perhaps you would prefer to live in a third world country where desperation rules. Capitalism is the only cure for poverty, its people like you who believe otherwise that keep Capitalism from freeing more people from ignorance and poverty.

Capitalism scares the hell out of Liberals, Socialist and Communist, because it makes their ideology look bad. Capitalism stamps out poverty---no other system has worked better in the last hundred years. Without Capitalism there is no freedom or prosperity.

I have seen Mexicans who don't speak a word of English take a job as a clean-up guy at a construction site and in a few months leave as master carpenters, electricians, plumbers, etc.

The people who succeed are those who seek out opportunity---the rest will be left in the dust---that's the way the world is, that's the one thing that will never change.

The American unemployed can sit in front of their televisions and wine about life not being fair or they can do what people from a third world country (Mexico) are doing and take advantage of the thousands of opportunities there are in every city in America.

If you dont some one else will, even if they have to sneak into this country to do it.
