This is all nonsense why don't Obama start to really push for a stronger economy and introduce a WPA Program so people can be employed now than just wait for years till job openings happen. Invest in more infrastructure also ROADS, BRIDGES, TUNNELS, and more to build on especially transportation.Yes I am not saying ignore gays but take more important aspects first. That is why we are 17th in place in science and math today.Finland and South Korea numbers one and two.
Employed doing what? There was a lot of shovel, pick and sledge work during the WPA…now a machine replaces most of that.

True dat. But someone has to build and maintain those machines. And someone has to manufacture the parts and materials. And the machine operators need food, clothing (often specialized), and tools. And so on. So while a lot of infrastructure work is mechanized or automated these days, such projects still need layers and layers of support. All of which means jobs.
Now, if the right would do their job and pass a bill or two, we'd be in business. Instead, their only business is tripping up Obama at every turn.
No more "On Sale" items. Everything is flat price, no gimmicks. You know, kinda like Apple. Thumbs up.
I'm too lazy to Google it but heard on the news a few weeks ago it isn't working out. Revenue was down 20% the first quarter, and a loss that is 2.5 times greater than what their profit was the period last year. Shoppers like to play the coupon, discount, clearance game. The thrill of the hunt.
Sears went to the low everyday price and is still closing stores. Then Sears went back to having (mini) sales - and still is closing stores. -> look at Wall*Fart in contrast, when they have their sales, people stampeded over each other.
Mind you that in retail for clothing for example there is on average a 200 to 300% mark up - so these 50% off sales they are still making some cash.

Nope. Where do you get that from? The average apparel retailer operates on much much smaller margins. I've had two such clients — good sized regional chains — over the past several years and a wet dream would be a 50% markup (which means wholesale is half of retail). Most of the time, they're operating on a margin of 150% (retail at cost plus 50%) or less. Only a handful of way high-end stores do better than that, and only because their market has more disposable income than a fairway has grass.
I suggest we put our differences aside meaning the Liberals and the Conservatives and work together to make America a prosperous economy once again.Like I said INFRASTRUCTURE puts thousands of people unemployed back to work once again.Start to really investigate Wall Street and make some arrests on what transpired with these crooks screwing the taxpayer out of their money with these inside trading deals that were made. Start to raise taxes on the rich which Obama does want which is correct and I agree on.Like I reiterated before have a WPA program and let people work on our parks, crumbling bridges, and highways. This will help.Do it now asap!
