Haven't you noticed by now?? The current administration couldn't care less about real job growth. They just want enough people dependent on government to ensure they keep getting reelected.

There has not been a recovery so weak in modern times. Considering that about over a million people turn 17 every year, working age, you need 20,000 jobs created a week just to keep up with them. Factor that into the 50,000 or so posted for most of the last four years, and you start to see just how dismal things really are. In any normal period, the combination of available labor, low interest, cheap natural gas and low price industrial property would start a boom. But not with this gang in charge.

Okay, goose, truth, van and the rest of you, explain how I am wrong. Considering the cheap energy is natural gas, which the Enlightened One says is the good fuel, why isn't he pushing his minions to make this happen? Or maybe you think the EPA doesn't work for him, like the IRS?

The EPA's purpose is to regulate. Whether the regulations are beneficial to the people of the United States is irrelevant. I went to them at the beginning of obie's first term with a project that would lighten the average vehicle anywhere from 10 to 100 lbs, without raising the price, and the cost for a demostration project to launch it would be well under a million.

Not interested. It wasn't green enough, so they blew billions on alternative energy instead.

BTW, Honda eventually did what I was proposing, and it has paid off nicely for them, but the entire industry could have a half-decade start with savings and more jobs for everyone.
