    The economy: it's all about jobs

    http://www.businessinsider.com/mauld...nd-gold-2011-9

    This a long and somewhat laborious tome on one aspect of our US economy,and that is jobs. And it is a good one if you want to take the time and wade through it; you should.

    Demand for goods and services is down and it doesn't take an economic genius to figure that out, nor is the reason the demand is down. It is because a vast number of folks don't have jobs, the prospect for jobs is diminishing daily and the outlook, and fear, that jobs will be scarce for quite some time, is palpable. Without jobs there is no MONEY. No money or not enough, or the fear that you might run out so better not spend all reduces demand.

    So, how does one go about creating "jobs" in a global economy since that is the employment marketplace, not just the US?

    Stay tuned to Obama's address on jobs and see what our leadership has to say. Job creation in the US. That is what will prove to be the biggest challenge and the most important to address for the next 10 years......while assuring we don't increase the pool of those that don't want to work, but can, maintaining self defense.....being prudent in how we spend our defense dollars and not use that as a way to balance the budget where economic policy has failed.....

    Part of the solution is, like it or not, social programs that put people back to work including those that can but won't. The other is to focus on multinational corporation as well as small business changes that encourage investment in the US, which might involves a roll back on regulations, revision of the tax structure on corporations and small business, and to use our tax dollars as if they are not going to get as much next year, and the year after......

    More taxes for anyone is not the solution. A fair tax that one can plan year to year without fear of investing where a big portion of the profit goes to Uncle Sam to squander, and without the burden of an existing tax or a potential tax being the determinant for investment, or not.......or some kind of blue sky regulation......those are real issues that the government fails to understand.

    I have a unique problem with the economy. All my customers are doing real good. So good that they can't allow the time for me to repair their trucks.
    Three of my customers had to buy new trucks and don't have time to paint them their colors, so they just lettered them up and will bring them in later. Mean while the shop gets a real good, much needed cleaning.

    How about a leader with

    real world experience in owning and operating a business of their own? Now that would be nice. This man is clueless on the issues related to job growth and business leadership. Just heard on Chicago talk radio that our President and his wife were both making well over 6 figures each years ago, yet had a very hard time getting into a house without the assistance of unscrupulous Tony Rezko stepping in on their behalf.

    In his own book, the President said they were afraid to answer their own phone for fear it was debt collectors......all the while she continued to employ a personal trainer during this difficult financial period.

    And you wonder why this economy cannot seem to take off? We don't need to get into deep, economic perspective to solve these issues. It's called common sense and leadership from someone who knows what it's like to meet a payroll and unlock their doors each and every day hoping they will have a business tomorrow.

    Some members of Congress

    have actually operated businesses. One such member is boycotting the President's speech this week. Joe Walsh is instead opting to meet with business owners in his own Illinois district.

    I have never quite grasped the reason that recipients of welfare, food stamps, unemployment benefits, etc., aren't required to provide a service in order to recieve those benefits. The entire country is in desperate need of mainatinence and a good cleaning, so why the hell aren't some of the recipients of these benefits providing a service to the country that is supporting them for the benefits they receive?
    "Oh, you don't want to work? Then get the hell out of the house we are paying for and quit eating our food." What better job program could we start with than that one?

    That would probably fail without goverment contracts.

    If he were a Dem, it

    would get little to no attention from the mainstream media. Yes, many in Congress are scoundrels in their personal lives.....remember Clinton? And right in the White House, The People's House that we pay to maintain???

    Then of course there's the unsavory history of the entire Kennedy clan. Good old Teddy stayed in office for decades even after stumbling away from his dead date and not reporting it until he slept it off.

    But when it's a Tea-Party candidate, all bets are off. Come on Tommy, us "Barbarians" can take it!
