BHO wants the slackers to get the same thing as the workers. I think we should close all the banks, and give all the money we have to the world so we have nothing left. They should take all the gold we have, if we have any left; and dump it in the deepest part of the ocean. We cannot have much left now. We all should go to Mexico and protest in their streets. I am sure Felipe would treat us the way he wants us to treat all the illegals from his country. I wonder if he will be willing to provide us with an education, welfare, free healthcare, and no taxes. I don't want to learn Spanish so he will need to provide an English-speaking teacher for me. He is such a nice man, and I am sure he will do everything possible to make us happy.

SINGAPORE -- While the U.S. unemployment rate "dropped" to 7.7 percent last month -- a figure even The Washington Post acknowledged was due " large part because the labor force fell by 350,000..." -- here in this modern and prosperous city-state of slightly more than 5 million people, unemployment is practically nonexistent.

A taxi driver tells me, "Everyone here works." With unemployment at an astonishingly low 1.9 percent, he is nearly right.

In part, this is due to a work ethic that seems to be in the genes here. But there is something else at work that should astound...
