I will share a true story.... My mom worked for the same small company in Maine for more than 18 years. About 15 months ago her boss unexpectedly cut her hours and responsibilities as he prepared to turn her role over to his son (he fired a lot of people as money became tight in this family run company). He finally let her go all together about a 6 weeks ago. She had been earning around $65k per year. Of course about 4 years ago she lost a substantial amount of her 401k as many others did. She turned 61 in August.
My mom refused to take unemployment and of course spent more of her savings to stay afloat, obviously she had a life-style she was used to and it mandated hefty car payments (Volvo) among other bills.
Last month she took a job for $11 an hour as a caterer for some hotel.....
I do believe this is what the President considers as a "job created" and you can count my mom among those 170,000 new jobs.
Form your own opinion if you like to as why I told this story.
[/QUOTE] My thoughts are with you Enchi & family too. This story is being played out all over America...... The "BIG O" loves to blame Bush, however it is "clear to me" that the marathon man from Kenya is hell-bent on destroying the USA....... His latest remark "vote for revenge" is just another indication that the CIC wants to divide America to the fullest. If he gets another 4 years he will do just that !!!! If nothing else, it is going to be a wild 3 days coming !!!!
Hey, idiot, care to explain how President Obama is from Kenya? Oops, I forgot you are a complete moron and devoid of knowledge on every subject.
But I could use a laugh, so have a go and explain the President's nationality.
[/QUOTE] Oh great wise one, Since the rest of his family is from there, perhaps one would conclude that sonnyboy started out there too !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
