Sarcasm. I'm just getting sick and tired of listening to politicians continually saying that jobs are the big issue, and unemployment is too high, and we need to do "whatever it takes to get Americans back to work." None of that matters if these "jobs" don't even provide a livable wage and those people still need to rely somewhat on welfare to get by. Whenever I hear a politician talking about jobs, I want to blurt out, "Well, communist countries have solved this problem!" But I think the deeper point would be lost on them. Shouldn't the real goal be to make America more competitive and efficient on a global scale? Countries that invest in their industrial base and education have historically seen booms in prosperity for everyone. Now, I'm NOT saying the government should be doing the investing, but they should at least stay out of the way of people who want to invest in long-term projects. Or stop building up a bubble in education that raises the prices for everyone and creates the incorrect impression that a degree in anything is worth the investment.
