We're discussing manufacturing jobs.

Intel's automated factories produce quite a lot of chips that cost quite a lot of money.

So you want Intel to have people produce those chips by hand using teeny tiny tweezers?

Either there will be a return to focus on the working class/poor/middle class...or there will be revolt.


Have you looked at your fellow Hippopotamus-American? They couldn't run a revolt because they can run 20 feet without gasping for breath.

The American public is fattened-up and dumbed-down for slaughter.

The owners of the country want the NSA so that they know what everyone is doing and thinking so that they're ready to quash any major dissent quickly.

I'm looking for a way out to work and live in a real developed country where the roads and bridges aren't neglected goat paths, they have 180mph trains, and you don't lose your home to a health emergency or going into 6 figure debt to put your kids through school.

Since the 1960's cartels have been establish to artificially raise prices in healthcare and education where once these things were considered a basic service of a civilized nation -- you know -- like every other developed nation does.

Now we're plagues with willfully ignorant tea-tards who vote to elect the people farking them even harder.

But, when similar "improvements" to the jobs picture was reported back when Georgie Porgie was president, everyone was all "yeah, but the type of jobs created were low paying, service jobs."  WHAR THE OUTRAGE WHEN IT'S PRESIDENT HOPEY?  WHAR?

The truth is somewhere along the lines of the state of the economy has very little to do with whatever "leadership" is provided by the president or Congress.  Oops, does this get me banned on Fark?

agsfark: choo: Thanks, GOP

Ain't that the truth. How could they not find a candidate to beat the current Moron in

The media wont let them win.  I knew 20 things about Sarah Palin's life, husband, kids, grandkids, the grandkids who were her actual kids, husband's job, husband's previous job, who her kids were dating, her wardrobe budget for the primaries, and part of her DNA and likelihood of trisomy occurring during a pregnancy.  None of that information was shared in a positive light.  She wasn't even running for president.

COMMUNITY ORGANIZER (a made-up term) was given more credence than someone who was an actual chief executive of a state.  It was said Obama had more experience.

On the other hand, I didn't even know if Biden had kids on election day.  All I know about him to this day is that he gaffe's about as much as Bush did but in a more adorable way, and The Onion likes him and keeps making endearing "Oh look he is washing his Trans Am on the White House lawn" jokes.

The baby of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson could run today, because he came back in time from a cloning vat, and he could claim he had perfect knowledge of the next 200 years of world history, and knew exactly what, and when, to do, and if they are on the Republican ticket they couldn't win.  The democrat candidate would just laugh and kill and eat an infant on live TV during primetime on all the networks and basic cable and still get 52% of the vote.  The media has done their jobs well.

Obama single-handedly made this happen.
Because the president decides whether to create jobs or not, and what kind of jobs they are.

mod3072: Wow, good job. You saw right through my clever ruse to shill for the Republican party by bashing the Republican party. I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids!

Okay... I'll ignore what I perceived as an endorsement for the pubs. So aside from that you went to great lengths to tell us all how much we slobber over dem cock. The Farkers in general are totally brainwashed by the dems to march in lockstep and we are nothing but subserviant sheeple to the 0bamster.

The thing is... I'm here pretty much every day... even if I'm not posting. Even the libbiest libs on here don't do that. They have plenty of complaints and poor opinions about the current administration. These guys may be derp farmers but they aren't actually dumb. So even ignoring the fact it did indeed appear you were endorsing the republican party you were still using a common right wing tactic of making anyone who even THINKS of voting democratic as mindless sheep.

It simply is not true. The reality is most are not happy with that party but the other guys are indeed WAY worse. Like freaking nutsoid, sell us all into slavery, launch large scale global conflicts next WEEK kind of worse.

You think they are the same? On some things sure. They both obey money masters. They both think of themselves before the people. But they are so different and so many OTHER ways that any thinking person with an ounce of human compassion don't even see the right wing as a viable alternative.

It is insulting to say those people are blind and brainwashed. They just have no other choice.

Capicheka? Now run along to your clever boys club meeting. Don't want to keep them waiting.

Amos Quito: CujoQuarrel: Amos Quito: Vectron: Obviously we need more workers. Amnesty!

Yeah, the cool thing is that our new "guests" will be willing to flip those burgers at half the going wage.

It gets even better.

Last I heard the new arrivals don't count toward your 50 person limit on the new health care law (Obamacare)


1) They'll work cheaper
2) They work harder
3) You can give them full time jobs and it not push you over your 50 limit so that you have to spend all that money on health care.
4) There now legal to hire

Why would you hire a native born when you can get these guys? Fire the born heres and hire the new legal illegals.


Once the "new legals" are legal, it will open up a huge demand to fill the positions that they formerly occupied as illegals, so we'll have a brand new bumper crop of "undocumented workers" pouring over the borders to fill that demand.


I hear those god damn Irish are taking a lot of our jobs too.

Nabb1: I just hope this doesn't reflect poorly on Obama.

It wont.  It has become acceptable to become an underachiever because it is currently vogue to blame the president of 6 years ago for the economy.  It is almost seem as a duty to Obama to be a failure and talk up his successes while blaming republicans and baby boomers for your bad luck with getting a job.  Living in your parents house on their insurance when you are 25 simultaneously is a tribute to Obama's successes, and an incrimination of the evil, stupid republicans.  Like any other failed culture, the young, liberal culture of failure was built on celebrating laziness and reviling hard work.  You didn't build that; let the government make it all better.

Because there are not any successful, 23 year old college grads anywhere in America, and if they are then they had white privileged or some other made-up thing.

It also depends om where you live too. $16 an hour in NYC is starvation wages.

Yep. NY is spendy. It sucks that they won't let anybody move to a place that costs less. I think they made a movie about that.
