    I was thinking about the other thread a bit. And taking a job is good and all, but if we want to create more jobs, if we want the economy to grow, we just cant be content to take a job if it's offered. We have to go out there and create them. We need people who arent content to sit around all day starting their own businesses and creating a need to hire other people.

    Our economy will not recover while people are acting like they are entitled to have someone else give them something. You have to go out and create opportunities.

    That's a great idea, but one of the problems I see right now is that providing someone a job during Obama's term isn't taken as just offering someone an opportunity to work. It has become tantamount to taking someone to raise.

    The Mrs and I have everything needed to run a small home ceramic business. She is a certified Ceramics instructor and one hell of an artist. We used to make our pices and sell them at places like Christmas bazaars and summer flea markets. One of our specialties is ceramic skulls which I developed a technique for that makes them look most real. It costs us about $7 to produce one and at least an hours time each. We used to sell them for $12.

    Any more all we get is "will you take $5 for that?" Needless to say we have almost stopped making things except as gifts for family and friends.
