    I was watching Jeopardy tonight and saw a commercial with Mitten expressing "concern" over jobs and it got me thinking.

    I have five siblings, all are married, none of them or their spouses are unemployed and in fact have the same jobs they had for at least the past 10 years. I have over 30 cousins, and their spouses, who also are not unemployed and have had the same jobs for the past 10 years or more. My husband has three siblings, and they, and their spouses have had the same jobs for the past 10 years or more, with one exception: an in-law that was layed off during the Bush administration and never went back to work (an uber-conservative, btw). Five of us have our own businesses and are making a profit.

    At USMB, I know of four people that have complained of being unemployed: Annie, BM, Immie, and Sallow (one lib out of four) and two business "owners" that can't make it in today's economy: GrumpyGramps and Dudball.

    It seems conservatives have more trouble being gainfully employed and that doesn't bode well for personal responsibility.

    I'd say this lady but I think she is actually employed by the Dem party.

    Fine. We sell and rent high end things. What does that have to do with the topic? Most of the whiners about unemployment and/or failed businesses are conservatives. Only ONE person in my extended family has been unemployed.

    Me either, and I've been working since I was fifteen in one capacity or another. And that doesn't even count babysitting from 10 to 14.
