In 2008, urban hipster college students voted for Obama with the fervor of Justin Bieber fan-boys.

While I don't know if that USSS agent behind him was banging sorority girls, I do know that sorority girls and sorority boys voted for Barack H. Obama because voting for a U.S. citizen was too mainstream.

As these art history majors graduate after 6 year years of cannabis, STD's and amassing student load debt they will never repay they find that can't get a job.

The college class of 2012 is in for a rude welcome to the world of work.

A weak labor market already has left half of young college graduates either jobless or underemployed in positions that don't fully use their skills and knowledge.

Young adults with bachelor's degrees are increasingly scraping by in lower-wage jobs — waiter or waitress, bartender, retail clerk or receptionist, for example — and that's confounding their hopes a degree would pay off despite higher tuition and mounting student loans.

An analysis of government data conducted for The Associated Press lays bare the highly uneven prospects for holders of bachelor's degrees.

    They put Obama in & we all have to deal with the result. They can deal with their decision to elect this country's destroyer.

    I had been laid-off for 2 years even after completing my 2nd assoc. I have been back at work for a year. Last week I got an email for a job, as I went to look there was no price offer I went to that same job search engine and saw ~215 currently posted jobs in my field 50k-80k for my skill level, which is approx. double what I make, but in 1 years time the next skill level is 75k-120k. I'm holding out (early bird gets the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese). It's not about what you study, it's about what kind of drive do you have after you enter the workforce.

    GM plant's closing like death knell in Dayton
    November 19, 2008|By Jim Kavanagh CNN

    Minechelle Washington says job losses in the Dayton area point to a bleak future for her children.

    The folks working at Jamestown Industries' Moraine Plant 2 near Dayton, Ohio, have the weary, haunted look of terminally ill patients, only it's their livelihoods that are about to die.

    Jamestown Moraine warehouses prepare and deliver parts to the General Motors Moraine Assembly truck plant. When the GM plant closes for good on December 23, so will Jamestown Moraine. Sixty-four people will lose their jobs at the supplier, the last of a workforce that once numbered 200.

    GM Moraine Assembly once employed about 5,000 people, churning out Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy and even Saab SUVs. About 1,000 will clock out for the last time next month.

    and what about the rest of them Manco Ohio in Dayton called back everyone they had laid off and is still hireing
    TCI industry in Colubus working round the clock and hireing
    Slice of Stainless in Williamsbugh Oh moved to a bigger factory and hireing
    Now thats just three .the people I drive for cant make deliveries fast enough to places all over ohio.You gave one example of a GM plant now take away the union and mismanagement and see if that plant would still be open ,better yet take away the money Obama lent to the car industy and see if any of them would still be open or any of the companies that help support them

    TOLEDO is still hurting CLEVELAND is still hurting


    Since Jan. 1, 2009, four northwest Ohio factories have closed, shipping their work to Indiana and costing the state 319 jobs.

    In the same period, a Blade investigation found, at least 11 other manufacturers employing about 1,900 people in the region have closed and shipped work to North Carolina, Tennessee, Illinois, and elsewhere within the United States.

    The Blade found about 140 factories with 20 or more employees that closed in northwest Ohio, totaling about 18,000 lost jobs. More than two dozen factory closings – costing about 3,500 jobs – were counted in Lenawee, Hillsdale, and Monroe counties in southeast Michigan.

    do a little reseach and you will find that its not Obama its the oil companies and the speculatetor.Under this addministation more has been spent on gas and oil exploratin then under any other so put the real blame where it belongs,and watch what happens if Romney wins
  • Ballade... clasact 2012/04/24 23:17:09
    OIL companies won't allow drilling in ANWR???...Oil companies are shutting down refineries ?...oil companies refused drilling licenses for AMERICAN oil companies BUT let Brasil and Venezuala drill?
  • clasact Ballade... 2012/04/24 23:55:16
    man their is drilling going on all over the place ,the ones that were shut down and refused a license did not meet EPA guildlines or did not submit the proper form.Please stop listening to people like Rush and go dig for yourself .The crap you have been fed is unreal.Im not saying Obama has done no wrong and is the best thing since sliced bread but things are getting better as jobs go I see if everyday and what you just wrote about the oil is pure crap.The only reson he has been taken it easy on the drilling is to advoid another gulf like spill and you cant blame him for that.Now you think Romney who will get the nomination will be your answer go check out his latest plan
  • Ballade... clasact 2012/04/25 01:52:39
    as you mention the BP spill care to mention the REST like not taking in outside expert help because it would upset the unions...the fact BP was and still is a major contributor to the Socialists and Obama reelction...he was scared of a spill and YET licensed Brazilian Oil companies...and Venezuelan companies 18 months before he would allow an AMERICAN company to drill....EPA guidelines....you mean Cap and Trade don't you...

  • clasact Ballade... 2012/04/26 23:08:28
    you and others did not get what you may have thought from him and alot of what he promised did not or took a long time to come around and you feel he has betrayed you,well I dont like everything he has done and do I think things could have been better yes if congress would work for the people and not just against the president but if you and others who think Romney (who will get the nomination) will make it better you had better start doing some real homework and see the future
  • Ballade... clasact 2012/04/27 01:19:38

    Not only that, but they will be the ones carrying the biggest burden of obama's tragic policies. 5 trillion in new debt in 3 1/2 years and that's just part of the problem, that these useful idiots will have to face because of their false messiah.

    It's the hard way, but they need to learn that what they hear isn't always the TRUTH. Schools are out for their buck just as much as big business - especially these 'for profit' schools. They need to improvise or start their own business.

    This is the first time any of these kids have ever heard the word "NO". Better late than never that they learn life is not always easy, like the rest of us figured out a long time ago.
