It's a good thing President Obama will be having a jobs summit because the recovery of the African-American community from a recession, as part of the general recovery of the national employment picture, is not assured.

Have you checked out www.recovery.gov ? They show all the places where the stimulus money has gone to create jobs. Sadly, a bunch of these places don't exist, and neither do the jobs. The only thing for real is that our tax dollars have been spent.

TO TAKE THE BLACKS JOBS

I hope during this meeting that someone explains to the administration that people actually need jobs to pay taxes for all the people that don't really want to work and have the government pay their way through life. And those jobs come from people willing to invest in businesses and ideas while earning money from their investments. Perhaps not taxing these people at a rate of 39% would spur further investments here in America.

Any people who believe that most other people don't really prefer to work and take care of their families are just plain stupid. If one understands anything about the nature of human behavior and families, they will understand a man's desire to work for his own money and family. If one doesn't understand all other factors involved, one really should keep quiet as it makes one look foolish.

What I do understand is that unfortunately our country consists of a lot of greedy people and it's sad, their attitudes will probably send this country down the drain. Other neighboring countries understand the true value of the equal economic and health care opportunity for all of their inhabitants. Sadly, I fear stupidity will bring this country further loss. It clearly needs an extended extreme makeover in its states' governments and congress.

Totally erroneous. You mistake other peoples lack of sympathy for your self induced problems as greed. The fact is, when it all comes down to it, nobody cares whether you make it or not, because someone else will if you don't. If you fail, you fail. Others won't. Your Mexican replacements won't.
If you have such warm regard for our more enlightened neighbors, I strongly suggest that you should consider relocating to their socialist graces. Soon. The Transgressives really didn't plan out the ramifications of trying to push through a destructive agenda opposed by the vast majority of Americans.
The outcome bodes poorly for Blacks. You are to be blamed.
