Ever notice how the liberal loon from OK misdirects every thread to some environmental issue? Maybe some red meat intake would help<G>.

Unemployment in NM is a serious issue. There are numerous ways to address it. People need jobs, they need encouragement, and they need personal responsibility too. No one thing will resolve the issue.

Perhaps those in high unemployment cities should move to low unemployment cities.

And that has what to do with the conversation at hand...unemployment? Maybe he recycles...EVERYTHING. Nightsoil to you. What, now we need a vitae...have to cite your good deeds and wear it on a sleeve. Just opening yourself up...give it a rest. We know what a good boy scout you are.
speaking of nightsoil, recycling the teabagger idiots in congress would help a lot.

As the saying goes, there is a whole sea of money out there if you apply yourself. Think outside any box, but in an environmentally responsible way. Green living is set to explode. Follow the science

Same thing said in the 1960's and 1970's. Mother Earth News was founded in 1970. People moved to the country in droves. Since the 1980's, people have been moving back to the city. Metro living is in, and metro living isn't "green". Very few Americans can handle real "green" living. As a nation, we are too soft. Gotta have soft beds, heat, a/c, internet, cable hi-def TV, etc. etc. "Green" living that uses Chinese products produced in industrial centers isn't green either. Solar panels, batteries, electric motors for hybrid cars, electronics to control it all, uses mined materials processed in heavy industrial factories. What the left pushes as "green" living today is a sham. Want to live green? Get out on a farm and grow and raise your own food, chop your own firewood for heat, build your own stuff and live off the land. That's real green living, and very few can do it.

What would help is more libertarian thought in congress, and less of you and your kind.

now "libertarian thought" - good one. It is a simplistic, sophomoric intellectual dead end. Somewhat appealing to the self-centered child in all of us, but not a way to face the real world for those who live in a society.

And don't try to pretend that the teabaggers in congress have anything highminded about them. They are simply appealing to the fringe element that comes out for the republican primaries in highly gerrymandered districts and to their corporate financial sponsors. Doing all they can to derail the recovery and spreading cynicism is not governing.

As usual, you are wrong all across the spectrum. The TEA Party does NOT "spread cynicism", it is the result of it. Government has failed the citizens of the United States, at all levels, and YOU know it, or else you lefties wouldn't be bitching for "Change", because there'd be no need for it. Libertarian thought supports going back to the founder's original intent. BOTH big government leftists, and libertarians, agree that there needs to be change, the ONLY difference is in which direction that change should be? You, and those who think like you, believe that doubling down on big-government policies that have already failed is the way to go. Libertarians believe that our countries greatness doesn't come from government, but from the citizenry.

Basically, the left believes that U.S. citizens are serfs who exist as pawns of the state, while libertarians believe that the individual, and libertay, are most important. I'll take freedom, you take your serfdom.

The fact is, your way has already failed, because it puts imperfect human beings in charge of other other imperfect human beings. It's your way that has gotten us into the mess we are in today. It's up to the rest of us who value freedom to stop you. We have been, and we will continue to do so.

MEN has excellent articles with one providing ideas on working at the comfort of your home. The other is the unique rain barrels that holds much more water than one you would have to buy. NO THAT'S GREEN LIVING.

BP: "We know the answer: It's the governments fault."

And here I thought it was the economy. That jobs are being outsourced. That Wall Street and banks have played fast and dirty. That we have been fighting two wars. That there is a Teaparty/no tax increase mentality in congress that is obstructing progress because they want the economy as an issue in 2014. That prior administrations pushed the problem down the pipeline until it could go no further. And it was dumped in the lap of Obama with little time to turn it around.

But you are more than entitled to that opinion. Many others hold the same view.

I was merely funning ya. Are you not the one that started the thread, and I quote, Poverty on the Increase, and then defended the position that it was the fault of the big bad government stealing, or eating (as you put it), jobs, resulting in poverty? Or are you going to argue that poverty and unemployment are mutually exclusive. Bwaaaahahah

So getting a minimum wage job in a low unemployment city still won't pay the rent..

It was merely a whimsical, satirical, suggestion.

Der, I don't think it is government's place to grow the economy. Maybe that is the kind of thinking that got us here.

I don't think so, either. My post was meant as sarcasm aimed at faux conservatives who waver between preaching small gov but swearing a conservative governor will make everything good and right. The post that initiated this thread was blaming the previous administration. I think those faux conservatives should re-examine the meaning of the word.
