Seriously, why not move to the big city and commit to urban youth?

So, you pay about $15K in benefits for a $40K employee?

How about a real pension plan instead of that crummy 401k?

People lose jobs, not "we" lose jobs. F*ck the collective.

Government needs to get out of the way and not continue to punish employers for hiring people.

Unemployment pays $560/week in Homer's state. Add food stamps and the tax benefits and must be close.

Is that the norm? Is it safe to say the average panhandlers makes 60K per year? It's amazing how these conversations devolve.

Here in is small sampling of what Obama has achieved. Notice I did not include; Osama Bin Laden, Libya, Iraq, Drawdown, Nobel Prize and so on.
Obama has and is moving us forward at an accelerating rate. Observe the markets of Sept.6 2012.
Observe who rebuilt the infrastructure to hold Bankers to strict derivatives regulations. Banker’s lobbied with over $200 million! to stop the Obama, Elizabeth Warren and Frank Dodds regulations from being implemented. Republicans are still seeking to deregulate them. Expose what their goals are and its NOT for our Main Street USA.{ Derivative trading prime suspect for the Great Recession}
Elizabeth goes nose to nose , right in the face, with Wall Streets tycoons. Our lady tiger that has the Tycoons appreciate fear. She is not a BROWN nosing follower of the herded sheep.
2016 she will be a contender for president, my predication. Observe her speech at the convention http://youtu.be/zNcbg1EU_bI U-tube speech.
This is one small example of how Obama will seek to continue to move us forward, up and out of the chaos of the republicans mandates.
Fiscal Year{ FY } in politics is from October to September. Bush presented Obama with a 9% constricting economy. Bush received a $256 Billion surplus to the annual budget from Clinton. So lets take that and add it to what Bush debts were, that he handed over to Obama. Bush handed a $1.4 Trillion debt to annual budget!
In 3.3 years Obama is at 15.1% to debt of GDP, from the 20.7% increase to debt, by Bush and Bush going rapidly down into the abyss.
Stimulus plan to revitalize the middle class produced a beneficial return on investment. We have seen an impressive recovery in the equity markets from Bush’s stock markets lost of 14 years of gains. Markets had retraced the lows back to 1996 in less than 17 months. Greatest lost ,in market value, in our Nations history. Obama’s actions helped restore equity markets post a gain of 105% through April of 2011. During Obama’s first 27 months in office.
Making up most of the losses with gains to the DOW of 17.2%, S&P 500 25.3% and the NASDAQ 31.7%. Compare this to say Reagan first 3.3 years in office Reagan’s gains to ; DOW 6.86%, S&P 500 6.16%, NASDAQ 7.02%. Obama has Surpassed most of his predecessors, including Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan!
Stimulus also stopped the decline in corporate profits that started under George W. Bush. Stimulus helped produce an increase of 22% per year in the first two years.
Obama has had the slowest growth in spending of any President in the past 60 years: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...
Latest up date to Markets; The Fed pledged Thursday to buy $40 billion in mortgage-backed bonds every month from large banks and other dealers in an effort to help free up capital and spur lending. The move is also expected to help push down mortgage rates, already near record lows, to further stimulate the housing market. The central bank said it would continue buying until the unemployment rate, which stood at 8.1 percent in August, decreases significantly.
Wall Street continued to cheer the news. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which surged more than 206 points after the Fed announcement Thursday -- climbed another 53 points Friday to 13,593, its highest closing since December 2007. Global markets also reacted positively: the Hang Seng index in Hong Kong surged 2.9 percent, the Japanese Nikkei 225 index shot up 1.8 percent, and the British FTSE 100 rose more than 1.6 percent.
