The 2nd part of the problem is unemployment. When there are few or no jobs, it's easy for yoing men to turn to crime. We have the 1% millionaires and billionaires who figured out the SECRET to getting rich quickly - have their products manufactured in China and elsewhere where labor costs are cheap. They can produce an ipod for 10 bucks and sell it for 300. With profit margins like those, say good bye to US manufacturing jobs returning. THIS has to be STOPPED through tough trade tariffs and penalties. The only advantage we have left is our large consumer market. I have nothing but disgust and contempt for the rich scumbags like Romney who have gleefully shipped American jobs overseas. The death of the American dream matters FAR FAR...

Trade tariffs don't necessarily work. We tried that and got the Great Depression. What we need to do is give those companies a chance to compete on American soil. Lower corporate tax rates but close loopholes. Unions have got to reduce wages somewhat.
When we start throwing rocks at people for jobs going overseas, one be accurate, what Romney's company did AFTER he left was move a call center.
What GE did was move entire manufacturing processes to China using billions in tax incentives given to them by Obama to build airliners for China instead of them buying Boeing, and working on the Stealth fighter for China.
They are not moving just for the price of labor which is starting to rise over there. In China there are bribes to be paid etc.

So just what was the "SECRET to getting rich quickly" BEFORE products were purchased from China - or did we have no rich back then?

The failure of "Progressive" social programs is the root of the "death of the American dream."

Most Americans don't care about whether Attorney General Eric Holder is hiding Fast and Furious documents because they don't understand the story.

Until someone can tell us otherwise, there is only one explanation for why President Obama's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives gave thousands of guns to Mexican drug dealers: It put guns in their hands to strengthen liberals' argument for gun control.

Precisely because this is such a jaw-dropping accusation -- criminality at the highest level of government to score a political point -- Republicans refuse to make it.

But the problem with Republican rectitude in discussing this...
