Anyone moving to Tennessee for a job will have a rude awakening. There are no jobs here. TN is just as bad if not worse than other states. It's the realtors and people wanting to move out of TN that keeps sugarcoating TN. Tennessee is the pits.

I wish you luck. Same thing happened to us 5 years ago. We'll probably be picking up the pieces from that for the rest of our lives. We both found work pretty quick after it happened but my husband has been out of work for over a year now. I've never seen it this bad.

It is sad what shape our country is in. The rich keeps getting richer while the poor are losing their jobs, home and everything else they have.

My older brother worked for USA steel co. in Portland for over 20 years. Went to work everyday and finally getting up to $20 a hr. The company let almost everyone go. No hope of getting to go back. After a year of looking, he finally got on at krogers part time making &8.50. My point is some people worked hard and did the right thing only to get slapped down. It is hard to make a living starting all over with less then half of the pay.

So many people are living from week to week. Losing just a few days here and there will get them so far behind that they never can get caught up again.

Obama though by just giving $B's away so the ceo's and other big wheels could get $M's that was going to help. Just to give away that much money and some can't or wont even explain how it was spend. Our gov. just said and did nothing.

I heard obama pledge $100M to the relief fund for the eartquake victims. Where is that $ coming from? And what about the honest hard working taxpayers here that needs help? Where is help for them?
