    Once the rich get richer, there will be plenty of lawn mowing and housekeeping jobs to go around!

    I think there was more to the former Massachusetts governors sentence, "11 percent unemployment in the Latino community is unacceptable, we can do better, let's see if we can get it up to 15 percent, do I hear 15? How about 16? Anyone give me 16 percent before November?"

    11% unemployment in the US Hispanic community sure beats Spain's 23% unemployment, lol. Shitty for both communities, though.

    There used to be those days when you could grow employment. When I began work at age 16, one of our companies employed 12,000. It's peak was in 1985 when it employed 34,000 or there-abouts. When it was offshored it employed 6,000 or so.

    I think perhaps we should allow the RJ Liberals to handle the unemployment issue. They work very well with our President and those in the Senate. Myself and others have stepped to the side-line so they can claim full credit for the astronomical growth in employment a Spanish and Greek style economy will bring to America.

    Umm it's like that across the board in some states, without the Latino designation. Bring the boys home from war, put them to work on heavily crime ridden areas and clearing away blight. Spend some of that pork barrel here at home on school budgets, after school activities. Force a roll back in the way banks do business, they collected billions to ensure the American dream would continue - then pulled back hard on credit requirements and funding requirements. Fix that.

    Put together a government panel to shake down State governments like those in California who are clearly gushing money somewhere into the wrong pockets. Clip over paid State and Federal job pay rates, magic carpet benefits. Every area of the private sector has had these pains - it's about time they were applied even handed. That includes retirees.

    Start using that money towards rebuilding the American infrastructure, crumbling highways and bridges, hire directly from the unemployment logs. Take the non violent criminals out of prison to work the road details, why should they sit on their lazy asses? Make them work for those three meals and a bed.

    Stop holding peoples hands and stuffing tiny checks in their pockets, give them work at a living wage. Stop standing behind "Capitalism" as if it were a blanket of forgiveness for robbing pilfering and pillaging the future of this nation. Tax the ultra rich? Make it impossible for them to move large amounts of currency abroad.

    I think we need Clint Eastwood in the oval office. Straighten this fucking train wreck out "Dirty Harry" style. It should be considered an act of treason to have made billions here in the US off of US citizens then to funnel it out of the country. Your moving there? Fine, your sir charge is 75%, payable NOW. See ya.


    Just my opinion lol.

    Interesting. You blend very liberal positions with very conservative positions. The rough edges in your dialog can be easily pruned via the U.S. Constitution, as we apply it today. Are your proposed actions doable? Some yes, some no.I think you would find some of them egregious if they were applied to you.

    Thanks.

    My thing is this. As a nation, we have red taped and sub commitee'd ourselves into oblivion. To get something outrageously simple as the placement of a "Handicapped" sign is like going to battle. It's ludicrous to me, looking out over the VAST wealth here in the state of California that there could be ANY money trouble. There has got to be an absolutely MONSTROUS galaxy of redundancy in how things are executed, a monolithic machine of hierarchy that every grain of info has to pass in order for there to be a problem with money.

    I think it's high time both here and in the rest of the nation that these systems are reconstructed on a very broad form. Take the situations and they must be countless, where you have 600 people doing the job that 20 could easily handle, and boot some ass. Take the 15 department heads to lunch, come back with 2. Sorry, will it smart a bit? Hell yeah. But does that make it less necessary?

    I expect my illustration is a micro spec of what is actually involved here, hence the reasoning for an outside company to audit the way the state governments execute our daily business. For every branch, at every level. A complete and total overhaul. Tell me how many times you have been out and about watching 30 city parks workers only 4 of whom are actually working. Really?

    Take that and spread i out all the way up the money tree, the excesses get much bigger and more spread out, layer after layer, ever rising salaries and paid benefits. All paid by you Mr Tax Payer. Supervisors, that supervise the supervisors supervisor. There was a brief glimpse of such fiscal atrocities at the city level in Detroit during the Kwame Kilpatrick goings on. City officials hiring relatives and lovers who were paid outrageous sums and had never seen the inside of a city building. THAT was just Detroit.

    Add to this a veritable pyramid of retired government workers, kicked back at age 50, collecting 87% of their salary and full benefits. Full benefits that we pay for while we also pay for our own. Sound silly? Yeah.

    Yet as this machine of thievery has taken the past 75 years to erect, each layer carefully covered by the next - it will take a team of financial forensicologists to unearth the millions of cockroaches that have helped to hijack your life. At what point does someone say it is time this gets fixed.

    It has taken 75 years of public apathy and ambivalence, blind acceptance and trust. All it would really take is one President with the chops to say sorry guys this doesn't work anymore.

    As for the droves of American Corporations who have fled and are planning to flee in order to better their already bulging pockets.. slap down marshal law. Greed is not a part of your constitutional rights. You want to take your business to China? Fine, pay the piper, don't let the door hit you in the ass, and by the way.. don't come back. Ever.

    I know it sounds simplistic. But it isn't really that hard. Corporations, Banking institutions, they are run by people who are by nature greedy. Enough is never enough, which is why unions came to be. There had to be an entity put in place to keep them honest. The unions have lost their teeth. The Corporations inability to compete once the Clinton signed NAFTA agreement came to fruition made it possible for them to take chunks of their organisations elsewhere, cutting American jobs and beating concessions out of what was left here.

    Now, faced with the possibility of taxation they take their marbles and leave? That doesn't work for me.. it shouldn't work for you either. It's called unjust enrichment. I think a lofty levee of 75% upon exit is still small change for most of these conglomerates. In addition, since those palatial mansions peppering the country will no longer be accessible for those crossing the border, they have 45 days to sell or it reverts to it's perspective city as property to be sold to offset tax losses.

    The other list - people like Romney who have manipulated the system to make millions while paying the tax rates of a modest school teacher. Sorry, that dog don't hunt. Maybe if enough of you deadbeats paid the going rate as opposed to what your high paid tax loophole specialists created for you, your thinking would come down to my level in a hurry.

    I am no socialist. I believe Capitalism can work, but somewhere along the line the scales of what was acceptable got woefully out of whack. The American dream paid the price. All the while they were stealing your future blind, the government was patting them on the back and giving them an atta boy. Hell, they couldn't pay their bills? Gonna go bust? Here, take another 4 billion. Just try to keep your damned raises and year end bonuses off the front page. Ooops. Did it stop the scores of people burned by the mortgage scams from being thrown from their homes? Nope. People who's FICO score had never quivered below 800 were now in the weeds with 500 scores, and foreclosure. They are the walking wounded of this. Their homes sit empty by the hundreds of thousands. Lives ruined, families displaced, and the best they could muster was a reprimand. Nice.


    Happily, I "Forest Gumped" my way past that mess, by virtue of a divorce that forced the sale of my house before the bottom fell out. That house is worth a THIRD what I got paid for it now. Can't imagine what runs through that poor guys head paying that whopping mortgage note every month. Most have thrown the keys in the door and said fuck it.

    There can be no appreciable change without radical steps. We have law and ordered ourselves into a corner, fear big brother? you should, he has his hand so far up your ass your little more than puppets now. The trick has been the most gigantic system of burn fade ever devised, to cover a government sponsored pyramid scheme to end all pyramid schemes. Ponzi was a piker. I can see a revolution coming here in the US. The disparity is breeding it as I write. The question is how will we deal with it when it happens as a result of our monstrous red tape machine?

    I was watching Netflix the other night, a rather disturbing group of films on gangs that rule here in our biggest cities. The seeds are growing. People laughingly jest about the zombie Apocalypse, there won't be zombies. Just a bunch of pissed off disenfranchised Americans, coming to take back what they lost, tired of being preyed on by those who swore to protect them. Tired of repeatedly throwing their hard earned money away fixing things in other lands that will never be fixed. Sound crazy?


    Revolution gave birth to this Nation.

    President Obama promised a new era of job creation, but almost four years latter unemployment is still above 8% did he deliver? Rhetoric or Reality?

    President Obama how can you rebuild your crumbling roads, and schools when you have no Greenbacks?
