Blacks between the ages of 16 and 19 are more likely to be unemployed than any other group in the nation. Their jobless rate has consistently been more than twice that of white teens - and more than four times the national rate overall. The economist attributes these unemployment inequities to a growing shift of jobs - from the inner cities to the suburbs. A weaker job networks for blacks, a low minimum wage, a deficiency in soft skills, and a bias among some employers are also factors. Yet, Newt Gingrich says "go to work as a janitor."
“I find it ironic that Republicans have such disdain for the lazy, and yet their solution to every problem is do nothing. Their answer to wealth inequality, do nothing. Health care? Do nothing. Climate change? Nothing. Racism? Doesn't exist. For a group of people so head over heels in love with self-reliance, they sure do recommend a lot of sitting on their ass.” Bill Maher
Who failed are the Americans that can’t see the beginning of a miracle of national rebirth right under their jaded noses. Who failed are the smart ass ideologues of the left and right who began rooting for this President to fail so that they could be proved right in their dire and morbid predictions. Who failed are the movers and shakers behind our obscenely dumb news cycles that have turned “news” into just more stupid entertainment for an entertainment-besotted infantile country. And who failed are the obvious racist who have crawled out of their holes into the daylight for all to see and condemn.
It’s time for some sense and sensibility. Conservative principles and values are sending the middle class Americans to the poor house. Republicans are pandering to the lowest common denominator to get votes. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan has the same Medicare plan - "Die Quickly." Republicans need to consider what the country needs. Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!
President Obama is succeeding without the help of his lefty “supporters” or hate-filled Republican detractors! The future looks good. He’s rising in the polls and people are beginning to open their eyes to the truth.
