You're wasting your keystrokes. Obama could come up with a cure for cancer and 50 other diseases, bring all jobs back from the past and the cretins here and the rest of the haters in this country will never stop getting themselves off with their hate while brainwashed by faux news. It is so obvious what the underlying reason is.... no matter how much they doth deny.
I haven't posted on it, but there is a thread somewhere...about why Topix participants has fallen....i believe it may have to do with people like you and i tiring of attempting intelligent conversation, with propaganda bots.....worst of all, is the damage they do to a once proud, Republican party.....

It's why I dig Reddit. It doesn't really have the community feel like this, but when a comment is stupid/inflammatory/doesn't relate to the thread, users downvote it and then you don't see it. Interesting/funny/informative stuff gets upvoted so you see it.

Well, if your retired then your only knowledge of the job market is thru the propaganda machine of your favorite news outlet. I would suggest to you, that if you really want a pulse on things, go out and try to get a job that is more difficult than making fries or saying "Welcome to Walmart."

Ha, I just realized you cant see the original post I made, so here it is again

Lighten up dude, I was not trying to insult you.
No, I dont read business news, nor do I watch golf, or paint dry.
I am only saying that no matter how rosy a picture is being painted in the media, what I hear from the folks in the trenches is that the economy is not this wonderful thing. In fact, the people I talk with tell me its in the toilet.
But I guess my empirical evidence is to be ignored next to a smoke and mirror statistical machine. Instead of reading made up numbers, go to the the unemployment office or a job fair, learn the truth by seeing it with your own eyes. Otherwise your blather is as meaningless as what you paint my words to be.

Good crack Huh?

Maybe you can lay it out for me Einstein. How much first hand knowledge does a retiree not looking for work have of today's job market?

Oh, business weekly says its all good, so now the retiree is suddenly with knowledge? Oh, wait fox central says the job market is bad, so NOW the retiree is truly filled with knowledge. Oh way CBS just said....

He is now with knowledge, just opinion, he is regurgitating what he chose to read and believe, but he has no actual knowledge.

Now go Master and Bait.
oh, and STFU yourself.

This is a nice thread, and i even have family on here.....that is the only thing that keeps me from presenting tons of evidence on how far this economy has recovered.........since GW walked out the White House door!.....Is it Optimal? Absolutely not, and it NEVER is!......I was in business for years, so it is something i follow, along with investments...."made up numbers"? Really?.....kinda snotty and petty,eh?
