I just looked at the label on my tee shirt I purchased at JC Pennys, made in Vietnam. Checked the label on my Levi's says made in Egipto, which I take is Egypt. What is one to do, I have used JC Pennys all my life, and was born in blue jeans. You don't even want to see me going around in naked!!

In my day (and I'm not that old), there was no work that was beneath me. I was not embarrased to flip hamburgers, pick tobacco, wash dishes in a restaurant, clean bathrooms in a church, mow lawns (I did all those). On the contrary, I would have been embarrased to have been unemployed, living on someone elses dime. There seems to be a disturbing trend towards shameless entitlement these days.

He's still an American Doer, not just an "American Dreamer".
And that's the difference between success and failure in this world.

Just like it's always been!

The people of yesterday were workers, built this country. Todays younguns are looking for the govt handout or the gift from the parents. Imagine 30 years ago, living at home till your at least 26, on pops insurance and borrowing 100,000 to get a degree in sports management.

Aericans owe more money on college loans, than on all the CREDIT CARDS combined.

Occupy Wall Street' Cleanup Postponed

MYFOXNY.COM - The scheduled cleaning of Zucotti Park in lower Manhattan where protesters have been camped out for approximately one month has been postponed, according to City officials.

"Brookfield (owners of the park) believes they can work out an arrangement with the protesters that will ensure the park remains clean, safe, available for public use and that the situation is respectful of residents and businesses downtown," said Dep. Mayor Cas Halloway.

The cleaning was expected to be in three stages- four hours in each stage- beginning at 7 a.m.

NYPD officials had said the protesters would be allowed to return following the cleanup, but would not be allowed to bring campging gear including sleeping bags and tarps. Protesters told FOX 5 News they saw the move as a way to push them out permanently.

Some demonstrators vowed to defy the order, setting the stage for a massive confrontation between cops and protesters.

Hard-core protesters responded by defiantly issuing an “Emergency Call to Action,” seeking a mass gathering at the park at 6:00am local time to resist the cops and cleanup crews.

“We won’t allow [Mayor] Bloomberg and the NYPD to foreclose our occupation. This is an occupation, not a permitted picnic,” organizer Patrick Bruner said in a statement, charging that the cleanup was “their attempt to shut down [the protest] for good.”

It is without a doubt an effort to break up the protest! The powers that be feel it has gone on too long. But we are guaranteed the right of peaceful assembly.

To all the posters who are/was business owners.

Would you hire a person who has been on unemployment for 99 weeks??

Only yes or no, no maybe depending on ____.

Bad question, would that be the deciding question definitely NO, way too many variables. Do you think someone with a specific skill set you need, a great resume but has been unable to find work for 99 weeks in this economy should be thrown out with the trash? I don't actually, if it was between him and someone who has been out 3 weeks and they both interveiwed well I'd pick him for his tenacity.
