    If "government can’t create jobs’, then why is Obama personally responsible for any unemployment in the country?


    While in-store sales were down, online sales were up and UPS is in trouble because the flood of last minute orders exceeded their capacity to deliver “on time”, so of course folks’ Christmas was ruined? Interesting how many jumped in to sue because they didn’t get “Instant gratification”. Yep, Christmas is SUCH a religious time, just like “Christian charity” in the right-wing means CUTTING unemployment!!

    @dtroutma

    Why are you against cutting unemployment?

    ^Unemployment BENEFITS, sorry, should have inserted that word as well for those who didn’t get the original…

    You seem like the poster boy for the “don’t care, they’re lazy, anyway” brand of conservatives.

    You seem to be the poster boy for the “give ‘em lifetime unemployment benefits because it’s someone else’s money” brand of “progressive”.

    No, I believe we need to negotiate an additional number of weeks over the now-current maximum of 26 weeks (and some Republican states have less than that). Somewhere between an addition 10 to 20 additional weeks would be helpful.
    .
    We all have problems with how government pays for programs with our money. You might not like paying people a few additional weeks of unemployment checks. I don’t like the government giving subsidies, grants, and tax breaks that equate to corporate welfare.

    Simple economic fact: $1 in government assistance for the unemployed brings $1.6 in benefits to the local economy’s circulation, like for food purchases etc.. Getting people employed IS the better solution, but the responsibility for said jobs lies with corporate America indeed, (and non-corporate employers as well) and building a consumer base who can AFFORD products. Most important is making those products IN the U.S. to at least some part of their production (like cars) instead of shipping all the jobs overseas. (I just love the irony of carbon fiber parts for Huey helicopters now being manufactured in Viet Nam!!)

    If she hates how long the gift exchange line is, perhaps she should consider waiting a day or two before returning the gift she so ungratefully received.
