But an even deeper concern is the skyrocketing number of Americans who give up looking for work out of despair.

Hired 4 guys to do some work on my ranch. It wasn't hard work, just some planting shrubs, and some painting. In 3 days I had no help! 2 quit, 1 his girlfriend was sick, and the other said it was worth more than 9 bucks an hour to paint a fence in 70 degrees, spring time. There you go. So I hired 2 Mexican fellows, they got the job done in 2 days, and only cost me 60 bucks for the 2 days of work they did.edit on 9-4-2012 by Mr_skepticc because: (no reason given)

If they got rid of all those unnecessary bills and cooked at home they might not need the second job What happened to spending a day at a local beach? Why do we have to go on cruises and to big resorts? Is the grass that much greener on the other side that we have to bankrupt ourselves to eat it?
Great, now I will be getting the extreme capitalists on my case. They don't understand that their world is going to totally collapse if this shenanigan keeps up. My life is here in Gods country, I don't need to give most of my money to others that don't live where I live.
no one knows what the hell they're doing.
The Ford service guy suggested I should call Sirius, “sometimes they tell you to point the car north” he said. Lots of commercial Geosync satellites north of here…That must be the problem, on the wrong bird. Actually in the big city satellite radio runs mostly off terrestrial repeaters. But I digress.
