    Many families have begun to withdraw from their 401K's to put food on the table. Oh Well....just another plight of what used to make up the middle class of this country.

    Time to let the market take control of the situation. If the market cant solve the problem then its time that we as a country address the problems.

    Enough pussy footing around. Enough printing dollars to prop up a failed system.

    It's called prioritizing. Nothing wrong with that.

    The market does not attempt to solve social problems.

    The market works only to solve market problems.

    The market basically doesn't give a rat's ass about the people or the national economy.

    Thanks for displaying your lack of education. Now shut the fuck up and let people who are smarter then you come up with solutions while you sit around and bitch.

    Another 'cant do anything for myself' liberal defending the hand that feeds.

    mine ran out in 2010, fortunately the housing industry picked up and work steadily increased, and with fewer illegals. Screw ur ideals on liberals, there are repugs on the dole also, duh.

    Being unemployed is not a 'social problem'.. it is a personal problem YOU are supposed to remedy... it is not up to society to prop you up, find you a job at the pay YOU want, or to coddle you while you cry about it...

    Then the solution would be to return to free markets. Maybe when the dollar goes and America no longer has a weight problem, immigration problem, or the funds to even have a discussion about continuing to prop the failed system up will you understand the situation you are in.

    Dont worry, its close.

    There is no unemployment in a free market. Central planning, and price fixing causes unemployment. Subsidy's causes high prices.
