The main question isn't will he get folks back to work; but, CAN he get folks back to work. Millions of jobs were decimated during the 2007-2009 economic meltdown. Will these same said jobs come back? That is the $64,000 question.
Writing about Jobs!
I publish a resume-writing website. I blog right here to encourage the chronically unemployed to keep the faith and remain positive. I've even written about my own personal battle with unemployment and return to a life on purpose.
The reality is that Jobs are the key to happiness and prosperity. I know, you say religious, love, family, and friendships are the keys to the happiness fault. NEWSFLASH: No job; no joy/peace/love...happiness. Also, religion become dead and meaningless when you've been unemployed a fur piece--dry spell.
Here coming the Lone Ranger...
The general hope is that Obama has some magic bullet or blue pill. He doesn't...but neither does Mitt, Rick, Michelle, Ron, or Sarah. We are in a real pickle. Sacred cows; welfare, SS, government pensions --entitlements.
The most unpopular thing is that while many are prosperous and go-to-go, an unspeakable portion of persons are not. The thinking is the old bootstrap mentality. "let 'em go to work!" Gladly...if there are opportunities for work (aka jobs).
Catch the President's speech Thursday night. Leave a comment on this b;log of your thoughts.
