According the American familys survey Americans are wirth 22% less than they were 4 years ago,this is a very sharp decline in our pocket books of course if you think about the devaluation of the dollar its easy to understand because prices have also risen at the rate of inflation,we must do something to get the price of gas up,maybe refuse the Canadian pipe line or just force the oil co's to use more corn,what ever it takes to get it up to 5 dollars per gal so ppl will stop using it.

Yes five years ago our dollar was worth more,it would buy more,we paid less for most things we needed such as houses,cars,food,insurance,the re was just more money 5 years ago,there are some ppl that it will not hurt as much as others, if you have a million dollars cash you now have 15% less,no it wont hurt you as much as a person trying to raise a family,its the same way with 5 dollar gas,it wont hurt some,but to some it will.

But profits are at an all time high. The wealthy have all the money tied up in their secret tax shelters. So much for trickle down economics and job creators!

You're missing the point. Companies are making more profits than ever while the workers are being paid proportionally less. With record profits should come more jobs with higher earnings.

You're missing the point large companys may be making more money but cost are up,besides how would you know anyway,companys most likely are paying more to employee's that are important to the company,but small business is having a hard time staying in business,thinks to all of the regulations along with the fact that the president just told us the sky is going to fall,these companys are not going to invest more money in labor when they hear this,they have to have capital to pay their current employee's,if things are so great why dont you jump in get you're feet wet,it easy to stand on the bank and tell someone in the water what to do,start you're own business,if you choose not to do that then quit,find you another job,if you were of value to who you work for then they will pay you more,besides why would business pay you more if they can find ten ppl to do the same job you do at the same money,you sound as though a company owe's you or someone else just because they are making money,this is not the case,you dont go to the store and pay more money for an item that the store is losing money on do you,you're problem is you think the wourld owe's you,sit on you're socialist ass draw welfare because this is never,never going to work the way you expect it to,you just dont understand business because you never have been in a business where you were the one behind the 8 ball.

I've heard ppl argue that Obama is trying to control everyone by helping them. I always figured it would be a lot easier to control a bunch of ppl who were hungry. He didn't create the mess we're in but at least he's making sure children are being fed and families who need support are getting it until our economy is more stable. Change isn't happening so quickly but if you do the research you'll see that things are improving steadily, if slowly.

The key word was 'profits'. The last time I looked profits are what's left after expenses. The fact is that profits are at an all time high. So where are the jobs? You can go back and watch Fox News now. Please don't comment on things you don't understand.

There are more workers than jobs. Like it or not a employee is nothing more than a tool to get a task done as cheaply as possible. If a machine can go it cheaper then the employee is no longer needed. shure someone has to fix that machine. but the cost of the machine and the maintaince is still much less than the cost of labor. Decades ago I operated a bulldozer for $2 per hour 40 cents above the minium wage. It took me two years to save up enough to buy my own dozer. I asked $30 per hour. A farmer was telling me it wasnt worth that much. I asked him what he paid his help. he stated $2 per hr. I then asked him could 15 men do as much work in a hour as my bulldozer. He had to admit they couldnt. I then asked hin could 30 men. still he had to admit they couldnt. I got the job. Now that same farmer bought 6 new row equiptment and bigger trucks ect. that way he could farm more acres with less hired help. three men in old single axel bob trucks where replaced by one guy in a semi tractor trailer rig. used to be all the hay was small square bales. someone had to physically haul them by hand to the barn. Now its big round bales that can sit outside until needed. and loaded & fed with machinery. labor just isnt in demand much these days. Having stated this The fact is a persons well being success or lack of success doesent necessarily have to be dependent on other people things or conditions. everyone can paddle their own canoe if they really want to.

If things were improving then we would not owe 17 trillion dollars,of which Clinton left us oweing 5.6 trillion,Bush 10.5 trillion,Obama has us near 17 trillion in 4 years,that is $50,000 for every man,woman,and child in ths country,of course Obama is going out in 4 years and he could care less how much debt he will leave,but get ready you are headed for hard times ahead,you will need twice as much money to buy any item you are now buying,which also means you will buy less items,the ecomony will go down,you're cost up,its called inflation.
