It's about JOBS -- Stupid

This week, the media flooded us with grim reaper news related to the economy. Even Hip-Hoppers are toying with soundbites like GDP, 4th quarter earnings, debt ceiling. We've heard adnauseum; but it mean a whole lot.

You see, at the end of the day, the issue ain't about the economy, it's about JOBS...Stupid!

When we have jobs, we have prosperity. That's what we get when we boil down this ocean of economic double-talk. The Congress may not realize it; perhaps even President Obama may not get it either.

The Government isn't the Driver of the economy, the people are. Business create jobs; business are run by, owned by, and sustained by people. Government SERVES the people.

Years ago, I attended a wealth changing seminar from Peaks Potential training called Millionaire Mind. It was there, that I become wealth minded. According to Clarence Page, columnist with the Chicago Tribune, Black Americans lost over half of their net worth during the recession of 2007-2009. Wealthy, mind you, is the accumulation of assets. Real estate, precious metals, business and entrepreneurship.

Unemployment among Blacks and Browns, is a staggering 18 % and climbing. But, the war cry is to CUT spending. The issue again, is JOBS! Washington, "R U Listening?"
