    ...record high levels, where are the jobs?

    See link in my signature. See graphs 9 and 10 (or all).

    Oh, and don't say too many regulations.

    WOW, Are you kidding? They are fleecing everyone and taking the money and jobs off shore. Three laws passed in the last 2 weeks that screw your rights. It is the beginning of the end but you fight over who is best, who is to blame etc. while both sides plan and execute screwing everyone. As stated by an author whos name escapes me. How did the Germans get millions of jews in boxcars? They fucking lied to them and that is what this government is doing to us. Please wake up and protect yourself.

    Why would I hire anyone if I can make a profit with what I have.

    Employees are an expense. And they are the easiest expense to control.

    When the CEO of Coca-Cola says that China (which let's not forget, is a fuckin' communist dictatorship!) is more business friendly than the US, how can you really argue that our regulatory and tax systems are just fine.

    Coca-Cola- nothing screams American business more than that brand, and it's CEO says, "I'd find it easier to business in China than the US!"

    But , nope, we should raise taxes and put a few more union cronies on the gravy train. That's the ticket. Yeah.

    Did you ever think that China is more "business friendly" because they have a captive labor force? Because the wages their workers get are the equivalent of slave labor in the US? Sure... Businesses don't want to look like total assholes, so they...ohhhh... do what they do best... market themselves in the best light.

    They blame everything BUT the slave labor wages. Hell, they might even hire some "personalities" to go on AM radio and find the sympathetic ear of a Media Mogul to start his own TV News Channel in hopes that the bait and switch will continue indefinitely.

    Then they take their profits and reinvest it OUTSIDE their own country, leaving this one to, little by little, fall into squalor.

    This is what this ridiculous form of Capitalism has become.

    Well...it is a drop dead certainty that this dismal economy shows us what a freaking joke the whole trickly down theory is, that's for damned sure.

    That will not, of course, stop faith based fools from believing it.

    Hm, labor is the last thing to recover after a recession. So the labor picture still looks bad.
    Amazing no one is blaming Obama. They'd rather blame ROmney, who isnt the president. Yet.

    The next phase is the "McJobs recovery" when the Left screams about all American workers get is the crumbs because you see growth in low wage jobs.
    Then we get full employment and the left is screaming because pizza delivery guys arent paid the same as the CEO.
    The Left is filled with economic boobs and ignoramuses who have forgotten any history. If they ever knew it.
