I am an electrician. Yea just me, but want to ask me about what is going on in home remodeling right now. Jobs are very hard to get right now.

i had work done in my house by a wonderful contractor, he used to have as much work as he could handle, he had very good people working for him. a few weeks ago he called me to ask if i know of anyone, any of my friends, who are planning work on their houses. what a shame that this person is asking me for work! unfortunately he voted for obama, and probably will do it again. that proves that a vote for the wrong president has very personal consequences. think about that. vote obama out of office!! save your friends and you relatives.
