Mr. Ransom’s Headline may be more literally true than he thinks. One of my customers told me he personally knew four people who lost everything in the BushObama Depression and committed suicide. You want a discouraged worker? I’m a discouraged worker. I have been looking for a job for 10 years. For the last few years until I fall off the chair. I have been doing odd jobs through a church group and on my own I have many qualifications including five degrees, over 17 years experience. I am honest, reliable, and sober. No booze, drug, or health problems. I NEED A JOB NOW!!!!

it sounds like you have all the "wrong" degrees to survive in obamas new America perhaps you should go back to school to learn how to be a walmart greeter or burger flipper in one of the many fine modern fast food restaurants or an accountant !! with obama care kicking in the IRSS will need thousands of new enforcers...I mean IRSS agents . look for govt work , its all thats LEFT

I wish Obama and the Democrats could be as passionate about jobs as they are about, say, the contents of Happy Meals. Or the dust from cement factories. Or the habitat of the red-cockaded woodpecker.

While the wizard of DC remains a master of illusion and delusion, focusing everyone’s attention on the man behind the curtain- and his 20 Little Martyrs- the jobless recovery now enters its fifth year with no signs that hiring will be picking up soon.

So instead of worrying about the peckers, I wonder about the 12 million martyrs who remain unemployed. And the 3.6...
