No, I don't think so. I'm not a very good political debater (okay, I suck at it) but I am led to believe that the economy sucks eggs and that is why I am unable to find jobs at this moment. I'm graduating from college in like a month or 2 so that is why the situation feels so much more grave than 4 years ago.

I'm not angry at you, I'm angry at the situation, pardon me

I'm leaving now

YES.

Shazia,
Many companies in the US are starting to hire again. The last quarter growth in the economy was excellent, the stock market is doing well and soared yesterday. My employer, Perdue Farms, Inc. has quite a few openings, many of them for recent college graduates, in many locations. Check out the careers tab at http://www.perdue.com/ for more info. Keep looking and work hard at it, something will turn up. Good luck and try to keep a positive outlook.

Bill

Oma,

I work at the corporate headquarters in the Information Technology Department. I stay locked up in what they used to call "the computer room" or "the data center" but now they don't call it anything, for security purposes,LOL. The chickens are grown on farms and "processed" (killed) at plants. I am connected to their computers but I rarely see any chickens die. You have to take a tour when you first start but that's about as close as I get.

I should hope to shout I am better off than 4 years ago. The economy is growing. I am in the low to middle income bracket but the tax cuts have helped our family tremendously.

The good old USA has great leadership today. Four years ago I was totally ashamed of the people in power.

God Bless America!

Borderstone,

What about all the people who "got married", "had a kid", "bought a car", "got saved", "found a friend", "bought a dog", etc. etc. ? They're all better off, no ? I think you will find that optimism, hard work and maybe a little faith, in anything really, will take you a whole lot closer to your goals in life than blaming your problems on a president, or a prime minister or the king. Light one candle dude, there's enough people cursing the darkness.

Peace,

Bill

This has nothing to do with politics but for the 1st time ever the answer is yes, I am better off than I was 4 yr. ago.
