    Under Obama, U.S. unemployment worse than Mexico
    Spokane Conservative Examiner
    August 1, 2011

    President Obama promised he would fundamentally transform America. And he has...

    Sporting a brand new unemployment rate of just under 5%, the current Mexican economy is humming, people are buying homes and people are working. In fact, the small business community of Mexico is creating jobs and a need for workers so fast that from only California nearly 300,000 illegals have repatriated themselves to Mexico, just to do those jobs "that Americans never would."

    The news, according to a report at the Monterey County Herald, means that illegal immigrants are now leaving California for greener pastures - in Mexico.

    "It's now easier to buy homes on credit, find a job and access higher education in Mexico," said Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, Mexican consul general in Sacramento, the Herald reports. "We have become a middle-class country."

    According to the Herald:

    An estimated 300,000 undocumented immigrants have left California since 2008, though the remaining 2.6 million still make up 7 percent of the population and 9 percent of the labor force, according to the Public Policy Institute of California.

    The best-paying jobs for those returning to their native Mexico can be found in the construction industry, as that nation is building new homes, factories and production facilities.

    "Put that side by side with American construction trends since President Obama came to office," McCullough writes, "and the contrast is stunning."

    Yeah I know about presidential promises.
    Not being into nation building or for the USA being the police force of the world. Being for smaller govt, and less spending, etc.

    Only fools believe what politicians say.

    The nation building did tick me off.

    Then we rewarded him with his approval numbers.

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    It's such a fucked up dynamic, our political discussion.

    Cons hate libs libs hate cons, meanwhile pols do basically the same shit in office with the exception of paying their base some drop in the bucket legislation to keep them believing.........................

    meanwhile, the middle class shrinks, and if you mention that then it's class warfare.......
    meanwhile, the reason all pols act the same is because if $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.....and if you mention that businessmen use their money to influence power, it's class warfare.


    MONEY MAKES THE WORLD GO AROUND BEAVIS. AND ASS MONEY GETS FUNNELED TO FEWER AND FEWER INDIVIDUALS AT THE TOP AS IT IS HERE IN THE U.S., THINGS NATURALLY BECOME MORE AND MORE UNSTABLE ECONOMICALLY. SOCIALLY WILL FOLLOW. IT'S NOT THAT HARD.

    I seem to recall someone saying something like this 20 years ago?:

    "If NAFTA is passed, what you will hear is a giant sucking sound of jobs leaving!"

    Now who was that? :confused:
