LMAO! Get out and look for a job. My son and step-son both graduated last spring and have had no problems finding work.Just about every place they put an application in at has called them both. Not a matter of no job simply a matter of no workers.

Well if the Democrats didnt hand out money in the form of give aways and welfare trying to buy votes maybe more people would realize the NEED TO work!! Folks, the pie in the sky is only so big and with a trillion dollar debt that pie is just about gone.
