That’s like 30 percent.
This is all going according to THE PLAN...
ONE IN THREE NOT WORKING? Hard to believe.
And that doesn't include people who are actively seeking a job in the last four weeks but still don't have one.
Why any one is surprised?
When anti-corporate mentality is the elected majority this is the normal result. Increasing welfare, food stamps & subsidies does not create jobs and prosperity.
Borrowing money to start wars in Iraq, Afghanistan does not create prosperity. Giving easy loans to college students does not create prosperity, it creates only more unemployed college graduates.
I was aghast yesterday listening to college students on Hannity TV show. We are screwed for a very long time.
If we keep nominating moderates without balls, we will be screwed for much longer time.

Why should they work when they can get much more through entitlements for not working? But of course “Idle hands are the Devils workshop”. But maybe that’s what the legislators intended so as to keep the LEO’s, justice system and politician supporting lawyers busy and enriched.
Why do anything? Odingo will do it all.
