Cannot help it, I think this is hilarious:

I am not trying to offend any who may actually need a job, but the only way I found this link was through this article:

I know people are hurting right now, but for folks to think that the President can just snap his fingers and make jobs happen tells me that they just don't get it.  A lot of jobs that were lost are not coming back because we do not need them anymore.  It is called creative destruction, part of the process people.

Stay Fool,

Get ready for the global expansion of Marshall Law.......Get ready for the Digital Age.....It will be exciting.

Do you think  the people at Motley Fool can continue to make what they are making when an Indian worker would be more than happy to do it for 1/10 the wage?

Have some tandoori chicken with french fries and a small Americano in the Digital Age......a radiological group I am aware of just fired ten highly paid radiologists where now x-rays can be read for a fraction of the cost overseas and delivered digitally.

Unfortunately, the government is a culprit in promoting that fiction and it has been for a long time.

I have a new job idea for the feds to fund. It's the "Bury dollar bills in barrels and then have the unemployed dig them up" plan. I hate when people expect it's the responsibility of government to provide them jobs.

I just got back from Buffalo last night. It's terrible to see the city in such bad shape, but jobs aren't the only problem.

The stimulus bill provided a lot of money for job creation! For instance, people in NC should apply for one of the thousands of jobs created by the teapot museum. I'm sure the golf courses named after Senators are hiring caddies and that arrow subsidy might interest some un-employed Indians.

Jobs are an economic indicator.  More jobs would mean this leg up has staying power.  If jobs are lagging the recovery too much that means the government did something that messed up the markets.

Not sure what you mean here...I never implied that our President gets (or doesn't get) anything.  I said that the people who think that he can just create jobs out of thin air don't get it.

Get ready for the global expansion of Marshall Law.......

A bit much in my opinion, but you could be onto something.

Do you think  the people at Motley Fool can continue to make what they are making when an Indian worker would be more than happy to do it for 1/10 the wage?

Without a doubt.

Creative destruction at work.  Are you telling me that if given two options, that I should chose the less efficient one just because I should?  Maybe I should...I dunno.  I am not that much of a protectionist though.  I could certainly be in the minority there, don't really care.  Now let's take it one step further and consider the quality of the service being provided.  If the overseas providers service sucks, then the radiologists here will have jobs (at least somewhere).  I read an article not long ago about how our medical schools are witnessing a shortage of students studying to become general practitioners.  Seems to be some demand there...probably more difficult to farm that one out overseas, but who knows?
