Well, look on the bright side flyboy, the Discovery Channel will have plenty of fodder for a reality show based on the trials and tribulations of applying for government benefits.

I dont have a "visceral hatred of everything Obama" at all. I just think he is the worst President since before Jimmy Carter. I dislike his ideas and policies. Hate him - nope not at all - never met the guy.

My post was a rude comment on the lack of jobs in the Obamarecovery summer/winter/fall/spring.

Sorry, flyboy, but there are more "dirty jobs" than ever. But they don't pay much, so people won't take them. Except, of course, immigrants who will work for less.

The problem with the economy is not the lack of dirty jobs. It is the lack of high tech jobs and people who can do them. My company is always looking for qualified people.

But too many people wanted to be bankers instead of engineers. America, for years before Obama, stopped investing in STEM. In fact, the scientific community say Obama has done more to advance science than anyone since Eisenhower.

Did it ever occur to you that Americans today get bored easily, and simply tired of the show? Or watching some guy make a lot of money doing the same thing they do might be turning people off? Or that watching someone do work like that while you get million dollar bonuses might make some people uncomfortable.

Your visceral hatred of everything Obama seems to have affected your normally solid reasoning.
