    Libs are already complaining and saying "The government won't let them get away with it".

    Bull - the government can't force companies to hire people.

    So, the unemployment rate is already going up and will continue to do so.

    The Left is bragging about the Big Mexican vote. Do these idiots know that this is the same people who have starved for 500 years? The same people who are always poor and continue to make themselves victims by voting for dictators. They are in America because they have ruined their own country.:(

    Dog, the sad thing is that sometimes I feel like they want the U.S. to turn into a 3rd world crap hole like where they came from. I work daily with many recent immigrants from Latin America including Mexico. I respect their willingness to work hard and enjoy the benefits of being in America, but I don't want my Country to be a reflection of theirs. I've been to all those countries and there's a real reason why they are here working rather than being in their own. :(

    It would be really interesting to find out just how many of those votes were cast by non-US citizens without ID. The whole point of blocking states from requiring ID was to allow for illegals to vote.

    Employment - or lack thereof - is a result of many seemingly unconnected factors. The overall economic health, foreign trade, immigration, regulations, attitudes, drugs, population demographics, birth and death rates, technology, increasing competition abroad, recycling, education, you name it. Unemployment is a symptom of deeper issues and until some rational balance is restored it will only continue to get worse. There is no political will to seriously address these issues, because to do so would require a level of ruthlessness that politicians are unwilling to embrace. All politicians want to be loved - or at least liked. For them to do what is necessary is against their very nature.

    Oft spoke of 'Consumer Confidence' may help an economy, but a lack of investor and business confidence can ruin it.

    There certainly is no investor or business confidence now - and the economy is still in the toilet.

    The company I work for does mainly defense projects.
    We had several on the board. In mid September, all contracts were put on hold until further notice.
    I doubt they will come back.

    We are finishing up on a project. It will be done in a couple of weeks. We have nothing else to follow it.

    I can see the company folding in the near future.

    Well Jody, they either lay off staff while they find other business other than defense contracts (which they will try to do) - or they do end up closing shop. I'm sorry for you.

    Unfortunately, little or none of this will be reported by the liberal media. Obama's boys will juggle the numbers and he will take credit for adding thousands of additional jobs. Wake-up people, the emperor is naked!

    The unemployment numbers will always speak for themselves. He can try to pretend that he created jobs - even try to cook numbers - the reality is that the emperor is naked and, in time, the people will see the nudity.
