We need to have a serious study and discussion about jobs and labor in the future. What shape will manufacturing take, is the H1-B program needed when we have computer and technology workers out of work, what shape will office jobs take when computer and technology allows one person to do so much more than a person a typewriter could do in the past. We need a truer picture of what future needs will be in all sectors of the economy. It could well be that some number of people will need permanent income support if there are no jobs for them.

Democratic liberals work themselves into a lather! Nation yawns. In politics, past performance virtually guarantees future results...

PurpleGirl, we don't need to have study and discussion about jobs, except in the actual context of, well, having jobs.

No, 100k a month job creation will barely keep pace with the expansion of the potential work force. At that rate, we will remain as unemployed as we are right now.

As for the Democrats' protests, they knuckled under on the health care bill, after declaring in writing that they wouldn't vote for a bill with its features. Their word means nothing to anyone with any sense.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

The Reverend Al Sharpton

  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
