That is an odd question coming from you.
How many times, on this very thread, have you preached that the status reached in ones' life is due to their own volition.
Should your existence be less well today, than it was in the Great Recession of the Bush years, perhaps you should rely on what RC preaches, your own volition.
Other Words, quite waiting for the government to bail your conservative, collective asses out.
How is that for an answer ole boy?
It's a typical misleading liberal one. We as a country are worse off under Obama and you knew that's what I meant. If I am successful and I buy myself a large expensive home with the fruits of my labor, it is my work ethic and drive that got me to the point where I could afford a luxury home. Of my own volition, if you will. Now, if I'm at work and you come by and burn my house to the ground, then my family and I are worse off because of your actions but my ability to be successful is still in tact. In burning my house down, you created a situation of hardship for me that was outside of my control. Obama is doing the same thing with his "Rules for Radicals" style policies and you know it.

The battle is the state of the country not you defending your hero. There is nothing juvenile about the position that your leader is putting this country in, he should be tried as an adult. Your entitlement sense of government has put us into a position that we might not overcome. It doesn't matter to you, but on this day that we honor veterans it seems that you would realise that this is not what they fought for.
"veterans", "what they fought for"

You are definitely preaching to the choir sister.

My form DD-214, and my 4-f draft eligibility status,(4-F because I joined) is on file at the county court house.

When you start saying crap as the above to a Vietnam era Veteran you are starting shit that you damn sure don't have a big of enough stick to stir.

I humored your prior bullshit, but you are crossing the line here.

And President Obama took office in Jan. 2009, what is your point?
There were 3.8 million job openings at the end of June, up 105,000 from the previous month and the most since July 2008. That is also 1.6 million more openings than when the market hit bottom in July 2009.
All of the gains in May came in the private sector. The number of open government jobs declined in June, as it had in two of the preceding three months.

A record high 91,541,000 Americans did not participate in the labor force this October.

According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), 932,000 people dropped out of the labor force last month, from at total of 90,609,000 in September to 91,541,000 in October.

The BLS defines a person “[n]ot in the labor force” as age 16 and older who are not employed and not considered to be unemployed as they have not looked for work in the four weeks prior to the survey.

The labor force participation rate — or all employed and unemployed people — in accordance with the decline, also hit a record low at 62.8 percent.

When President Obama took office in January 2009, the labor force participation rate was 65.7 percent.

From January 2009 to October 2013, more than 11 million people have dropped out of the labor force — from 80,507,000 to October’s 91,541,000.

The number of people not participating in the labor force could exceed those working in about four years.

The job creation in the private sector has ,for years, been in low paying jobs. Until recently an hourly worker did get 39 hours per week. However with Obamacare those jobs have been split and there are two people getting 19 hours per week. So an additional job is created as the company has to have the same number of employees to service their customers. Thus job creation.

That's 28.4%!!! Thank goodness they don't count them in our unemployment numbers or we might not realize just how good we are doing since the unemployment is in the 7.4% range. The liberal way, just bury your head in the sand, see only what you want to see, and believe it.

You used to be just a fry cook and now thanks to Obama care that job has cut you to 19 hours, so you went out and got a job as a toilet cleaner at a truck stop and you now have to drive several miles to that part time job from Salem Arkansas.

So an additional job is created as the company has to have the same number of employees to service their customers. Thus job creation.
After an uptick in part-time work earlier this year, which Republicans seized on to attack the law, the new jobs report shows that, for the second straight month, the number of part-time jobs reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics fell. In September, 691,000 full-time jobs were added to the economy while 594,000 part-time jobs went away. The average workweek remained about 35 hours. Plus, as Ben Casselman points out in the Wall Street Journal, part-time employees were actually working more hours in recent months, and because of differences in the way the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the ACA define “part-time,” there’s no evidence the law has had any impact on part-time employment over the past year. Part-time employment nationwide is higher than before the recession started in 2008, but that trend began before Obamacare became law in 2010. In addition, the health care law’s requirement that employers provide health insurance to full-time workers, doesn’t even begin until 2015.

You would think with the numbers looking like they do that people would realize that college may not be as great as it's propagandized to be. Who would want to get tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands in debt only to not be able to find a job that helps pay back those bills. 6.5 million new potential progressive sheeps. It's no wonder that liberals see education as essential. So much so that they are willing to burden so many people with so much debt and increasingly narrower prospects of finding jobs.

I believe grandparents and parents should start savings plans for children. I intend for my grandchildren to have options.Trade school or med school, funds will be available.Liberal Arts degrees prepare you for life as well as MBAs in that they open your eyes and expose you to new things.IMHO

Or an optimistic realist. Facts are facts. If you have a declining workforce then it should stand to reason that institutions that prepare our young adults for entering the workforce should be declining in enrollment as well. Why would you up the enrollment if the proposition for employment is declining which would leave those graduating overburdened with debt they can't possibly pay back? Unless the institution has an alterior purpose like endoctrination. Just a common sense observation.
