The Jobs that Americans Won't Do (Part III)
"I found it interesting reading the "comments" after the on-line article. Many were highly doubtful that these jobs existed or that American workers were unwilling to take them. Doubt if they read any "bad" news articles (i.e. global warming, Iraq war) with the same discerning attitude.
They are going to be pissed off, pessimistic, and powerless, and damned if they're going to let any facts stand in their way! Life sucks, and only Hillary or Obama can make it better." - Jeff K
