Only losers, apologists, and excuse makers don't get this. We've been on this road to nowhere for far too long.
If we create more jobs, then the issue will focus on the supply and availability of labor versus now where it focuses on the supply and availability of jobs. When you create more jobs income naturally rises. And I am not talking about servant sector jobs. I am talking about production/creation.
It is that simple. These arguments that the problems in this country center on overregulation are overstated. The issues of overregulation are affected by fear of law suits. We need Torte Reform. We have needed that for decades. I don't see anyone making a move to bring that about, because most of the people running this country are lawyers.
We have to have regulations, because the corporate culture has not worked in the interest of America. We cannot deregulate our economy to mimic Developing Nation economies. Do you want our environment to be like that of a Third World country? Will our economic fortunes rise, if our wages match those of China and India and other developing nations? We have to demand that their standards match ours or we don't let their products in the country if they compete against our labor force and they are cutting corners.
I see these statistics about college graduates finding work versus high school and lower attainment not finding jobs. What those stats never delve into is underemployment. College graduates with degrees that are doing menial labor and who are qualified to do much more technical work. And I have shown you articles and stats that show retirees staying in the workforce and staying in management positions. They say the younger generations aren't qualified. Well, it's hard to be qualified when you aren't given the opportunity to move up the ladder.
The piousness and self sanctification of so many of the Baby Boomers does more than frustrate the younger generations. We hold our grandparents and great grandparents in high esteem. They fought their way through Depressions and World Wars to bring this country into its Golden years and the Boomers have frittered it into an Economic Depression and they are in a drunken stupor of denial about what it is going to take to get us out of it.
It is going to take people really working together and looking out for one another in a spiritually meaningful way to move forward. Dog eat Dog and I've got mine, you get yours are what have brought us to the point that we are at today. That is not what this country was built on.
Take heed, no one man is going to be able to change the country. For far too long we have seen big blown soliloquies that never develop into fruitful endeavors. We see politicians looking out for their own interests instead of those of the people. Whomever is elected to the next term of the Presidency and all of the other offices near and far, big and small, it takes working together in a meaningful way to make things happen. It takes working together for the people you are supposed to represent to move things forward. It takes courage to make things happen. It takes more than words to make things happen. It takes action to make things happen.
Don't talk about it be about it!
