Tea partiers would rather have America languish than let it succeed under President Obama' leadership. That's not patriotism.

You can lead an unemployed American to a farm, but you can't make them pick crops.

Maybe we can train Americans to speak Spanish.

Have we ever implemented a jobs training program for Mexicans?
Why is it that Mexicans know how to do this jobs but Americans don't?

No, seriously, think about that and tell me what you think.

Do we really need a job training program; is that what's missing?

There is a shortage of about 100,000 or more in the field of truck driving big rigs.....but the govt makes it so hard to get into and stay, its almost as hard to be a truck driver as it is an airline pilot.

yet an 80 year old man can get behind the wheel of a huge RV and driver coast to coast without stopping and have no requirements to keep, as opposed to a truck driver that is limited to working hours, health, background checks, random drug testes, and a myriad of silly regulations.

I actually agree with this post. Inbred is 100% correct. The CDL requirements imposed in the 80s created a berrier to livable wage professions in transporation when drug test after accidents was sufficient

Well ask Harry Reid, he is blocking 15 jobs bills the house sent up. He won't even let them go to committee for a vote, by Obama's orders by the way. Ask the man in control pookie. The ones you blame are the only ones to try to produce legislation to grow jobs. We all know odoodle hasn't pivoted his laser like ability after promising it after his last 15 trips to Martha's Vineyard.

The eighteen hundred regulations Obama put on the books killed millions of jobs. The EPA is trying to kill more as we speak. Obama hopes to match the economy of North Korea soon. Both seem to rule by the same standards and methods.
