  1. Well there was something else to note that came out today. It is coming out on CNN. The jobless have given up. So therefore by Progressive agenda and now many GOP’rs we must do what? Support them indefinitely?

    Giving up. That is the mantra of today’s world in America. I have written several comments on this. Everyone who is continuing on agrees with me. Those who have now been unemployed for a year or two do not.

    The argument, usually a knee jerk reaction by the Progressive, is that the government has shipped jobs overseas and there is nothing left in this country. Etc Etc. And that is true. It was true in the 1980s and 90s as well. And in those times I have said I had no degree, no trade and no skills. I have lived in the ghetto twice for extended periods of time.

    And you know what? That’s the way life goes.

    There are still many opportunities in this country. There are many trade schools that not only give a skill but give a good paycheck as well. There are medical professions such as the RN that are crying for licenses. There may be a lot of companies lost–but do not tell me you cannot get another trade. You can get another trade in your fifties.

    Remember the movie “Reality Bites?” That was the representation of the perpetual whine. And many of those people are now in their forties. And it is the same whine. And it will fall on deaf ears with me. As I am no longer in the ghetto. I was a medical provider. And now doing well as a writer. And I achieved it by my own hand. I’m not any more gifted than anyone else. And if it all fell apart I’d go right back, take out a loan and go to trade school. And so would the WW II generation. They lived through worse than this economy. And they made it. Because they had to.

    You do not invoke an evil policy of the producer must pay for the non producer. Unemployment should last no more than one year. And then you are on your own. Regardless of if you lose your house and have to move in with your parents. Or the ghetto like I did. Because that is fair. It is the epitome of fairness. If your answer is “I can’t” then whatever follows does. One man does not work to support another–for years.

    We will collapse if we continue this reckless spending combined with the entitlement attitude. The mentality that no one should suffer. I don’t need to refer to my fiction–history completely agrees with me.
