On Jan. 10, the monthly jobs report showed that the U.S. economy added only 74,000 jobs in December--and that people were giving up on finding employment and leaving the work force in droves.

This is an important article right now. Would that our Congress critters pay attention before our economy is destroyed and we become a feudal society. Oh, wait, is that the plan?!

Write congress, let them know that they need to do their jobs. People are dying out here from poverty and it's just getting worse.

When people are unemployed it puts a strain on unemployment and other services. When those services are cut off and people have no money to spend; sales go down resulting in lost revenues and a further strain on the economic and social infrastructure. For a bunch of educated felons that we call politicians it is obvious that many of them have never run a business. Perhaps Debra is right; a feudal system ruled by the divine right of the royalty is exactly what the plan is. Frankly, I think it's more dystopian like Fritz Lang's Metropolis.

Nothing like creating more hungry and hopeless people. Eventually someone will hand them a torch and pitchfork. Is only a matter of time before the leaders start rising up among them and the Plutocrats might not like the direction it will go. A lot of the poor and forgotten are former Veterans.....who have been spit out for their loyalty to a mess of a Nation.
