I don't know where all YOUR jobs are.

I have three interviews next week and I've only been looking since March 23d.

Maybe the problem is, I don't know, YOU???

If I tried to explain it, it would lose its meaning. It means what ever you want it to mean. If you interpret it as meaningless, then that's what it means. It's all in the interpretation.

There are too many government workers, the tax code is too big.


Good idea. Fire government workers and have even more people chasing what jobs are available.

"I wonder what the top rated post on this story is, I bet it's good. Hmm..."

There is absolutely nothing hidden at all about Obama's agenda. Just look at his actions, they scream loud an clear what he wants. He wants to be dictator of the Socialist States of America.

Are the states no longer united?

On April 4th, Romney accused Obama of running a 'hide-and-seek' campaign.

On April 2nd, Romney outlined one part of his own 'hide-and-seek' campaign (new window)

fta "So I think it's important for me to point out that I anticipate that there will be departments and agencies that will either be eliminated or combined with other agencies. So for instance, I anticipate that housing vouchers will be turned over to the states rather than be administered at the federal level, and so at this point I think of the programs to be eliminated or to be returned to the states, and we'll see what consolidation opportunities exist as a result of those program eliminations. So will there be some that get eliminated or combined? The answer is yes, but I'm not going to give you a list right now."

So, Romney could tell you what he plans to do after the election, but he chooses not to. Buy your Romney lottery ticket first, and find out how much it's cost you later.

IronTom: the tax code is too big.


Now imagine trying to shorten it, but you had to make sure that you stayed revenue neutral. For every loophole you closed, for every efficiency gained, you MUST cut taxes by the exact same amount somewhere else. Cut too much and the US is in even worse shape deficit-wise. If you cut too little, if you actually end up raising tax revenues by accident, Norquist gets to have his way with you. He would RINO you day and night. Which would probably end up with you getting primary'd. Your political career would essentially be over after being RINO'd by the big fella.

What do you do?

Truthfully, I do not have a plan that is compatible with GOP principles. However, it would be imprudent to admit that, as my research into human voting patterns has shown a desire to only vote for a candidate that presents a well-formulated plan, or at least one that appears so. Although this may seem deceptive, it does not violate my programming or my Starfleet training to simply omit these facts from my campaign.

Not to go all tinfoil hat here, but privately run for profit prisons is a fast growing industry that contributes a lot to politicians who support "tough on crime" legislation. Nonviolent drug offenses account for a non-trivial percentage of arrests, prosecutions and jail terms. Decriminalizing recreational drug use could save taxpayers a significant amount of money.

Hobodeluxe: Obama has created more jobs than Bush's entire two terms.


Which would explain why there is a higher unemployment rate and millions fewer jobs now than when Obama took office I suppose.

By the way, could you explain to me the campaign ads used against Bush in 2004? You know, the ones that talked about job losses and unemployment. Were the Democrats BS'ing back then or are they BS'ing now? It's one or the other.

Obama has one of the one of the worst track records in history for unemployment, long term unemployment, youth unemployment, minority unemployment, and food stamps.

But he's doing so much better than Bush right? Totally.

I've heard observations that Mitt Romney's only real tactic lately has been the Rovian one: whatever your weakness is, claim your opponent has it.

So he's been calling Obama an Elitist, out of touch, someone who spent too much time at Harvard. (Romney has 2 degrees from Harvard himself) He's claiming Obama's making war on women instead because he made them lose their jobs. (laughably false)

A good chunk of the defecit you're pinning on Obama is the costs of the war(s) on terror, which Bush just magically left out of his totals.

Also, when exactly did the economy/housing markets crash and when did the unemployment crisis begin? It was before Obama was elected, let alone sworn in. Face it, your team burned down the house and now spend all your time biatching that the other team isnt clearing the ashes fast enough.

Well, there it is.


Yuppo. The GOP demanded cuts, Obama tried to combine cuts and tax increases/ loophole closings and the not-really-serious-about-fixing-stuff GOP balked so then we had the so-called Super Committee FAIL of epic proportions and now that will lead to draconian unmeasured across-the-board cuts at the same time that taxes return to previously normal levels.

Not surprised nobody wants to say shiat about it yet.

You act like any president can just call down to the Job Factory and order up 12 million more jobs to order, and this one just isn't doing it out of spite.

I'm not sure where all the unemployed are looking for work or what type of work they are looking for, but when I was looking for IT work there were a shiat load of positions opened. Granted companies are looking for folks with some sort of degree or cert, but if your unemployed and don't have one, get one. That's what I did when I got laid off and am thankful to finally be working now.

/Anecdotal evidence is anecdotal, maybe I just got lucky.
//know there are a lot of folks with degrees and exerience still looking, there are jobs out there for you and you'll find 'em
