Jun 9, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Kansas City Star

Taxpayers have spent billions of dollars over two decades to reduce the potential damage from another massive flood like the one that ravaged Missouri and eight other states in 1993.

If you aren't working by now, it's not the economy - it's you.

average price of a new car $30,000.00
who is going to buy ramped up production ?

I used to replace the family car every 3 years, on the same one now for over 9 years.

Hard to justify $500.00-$600.00 a month for a cheap new car plus $125.00 for full comp insurance..

Could always buy a $20,000.00 korean baby shoe car I guess so I could say I have a new car.

The “real” unemployment or U-6 rate is 13.8 percent for May 2013. This is the total percentage of unemployed and underemployed workers.

The “real” number of unemployed Americans is 21.9 million. These are people who are unemployed (11.8 million), want work but have stopped searching for a job (2.2 million), or are working part time because they can’t find full time employment (7.9 million).

Nice try.

According to the National Automobile Dealers Association, as of 2013 the average cost of a new car in the United States is somewhere around $28,400.

That means, if we use statistical analysis, there exists more cars under $28,400 than over that amount.

According to http://www.realcartips.com/car-incentives/bes... , there are plenty of new vehicles available for $200 or less (not including down payment).

Try the following website. How about a Ford Super Duty for $32,000?

As I said - if you're not making money these days, it's not the economy - it's you.

How about posting some job surplus numbers, Nance?

With over 3 million jobs in the US remaining unfilled and the nation adding jobs at a rate of over 150,000 a month, who needs a job?

Take your pick - they're not all McDonald's jobs.

Not all companies advertise their openings - many keep it on the "down low" and predomantently go through recruiters or 2nd party services.

The jobs are out there people - but the good ones aren't going to land on your lap.

It takes work to find work nowadays.

I'm neither D or R - regardless of what anyone may think - I'm just not into the whole b*tching and moaning about government thing.

Finding a decent job isn't rocket science.

I'll not be buying anything from "The Big 3" anytime soon. Ford's cars are rust buckets, GM's are JUNK, and evidently Chrysler's vehicles tend to blow up when someone rear ends them. No, thanks. Besides, the top 2 auto makers with the most parts made in the USA are Toyota and Honda.

Blogs have information that is valid. YOU just have to have to brains to research it. If you don't, you're the idiot.

As to your Rubio site... You didn't read it!

http://www.politifact.com/florida/statements/...

..."But Rubio specifically said "there are 3 million jobs available in America that are not filled because too many of our people don’t have the skills for those jobs. A CLOSE LOOK AT THE SURVEY REVEALS IT DOESN'T ACTUALLY SUPPORT THAT THESIS.

..."However,****there are always job openings -- even in a healthy economy****. In a phenomenon known as "churn," people change jobs. Just because their old job is unoccupied when the BLS takes its monthly data snapshot doesn’t necessarily mean that the employer is having trouble filling the job, or finding the skills of the applicants lacking. Rather, the employer could simply be going through the process of hiring, with the job filled a month later."

.."Rubio said, "There are 3 million jobs available in America that are not filled because too many of our people don’t have the skills for those jobs."

If one allows him some space for using shorthand, Rubio is basically right that there are "3 million jobs available in America." ****But while there is anecdotal evidence of a job-skills shortage, there is no data to prove his contention that the 3 million jobs in question are all open because of a mismatch in job skills. In fact, there’s significant evidence to contradict it -- the fact that the statistics in question always capture normal job churn, for instance, and the signs of "hiring paralysis" among employers."*****

http://www.politifact.com/florida/statements/...

DO YOU SEE IT? "However, there are always job openings -- even in a healthy economy" I don't see SURPLUS JOBS mentioned anywhere..

So, your point is? LMAO

As to your Forbes article... you should actually read it...
