Question: Everyday I hear were in a recession and the job markets at 9.1 percent and the economy is in the verge of collapse? I've been abroad for 4 years and all I can pick up is what I can read from articles on the news and internet.

For the millions who are out of work it's even worse than what you read in the papers. New college graduates can't find jobs in their career and are returning to the high school job they had at McDonald's, people in their late 50's who are laid off will have trouble ever finding a decent job again but are much too young to retire, those who were making 6 figure incomes are working at any job they can find, and those who have been out of work for a long while have run out of unemployment benefits. Our country is in major trouble.

I rarely send a first class letter these days... paperless is taking over. The USPS is a problem, but as for running a business like a bunch of drunken monkeys, there's plenty of that going around these days in the private sector. First Class mail service at an affordable cost is inherently dicey left to the open market... Wal-Mart could probably do it, but I hear that they are pretty tough for vendors to work with, too. You'll probably know what their policies are but you're not likely to like them... and as for customer service, have you ever tried to find an open checkout line at Walmart? Stood in line at the return desk? Or had to wander around to find someone to find an employee to help you? UPS and Fed Ex don't stop at nearly EVERY house, every day in the U.S., do they? This includes daily rural routes at a FLAT POSTAGE RATE... the speed guys charge different rates for different distances... I once had a two hour chat on an airplane with a gentleman who worked for the USPS, whose job was to troubleshoot the high-tech bulk mail sorting machines. He commented (not bashing, but this was during the Bush administration, I don't know how political the policy-making appointees are) that the frequent "upgrades" of fancy sorters with "new and better" features eventually started causing more problems than they solved... the bells and whistles eventually outstripped the most basic functionality... I've always had good experience with customer service at the local level, though... It would be interesting to experiment with contracting the mail deliveries to FedEX or UPS, or Wal-Mart. But if the private contractors associated with the Iraq War are any indication, it ain't going to save any money... Off my soap box. It's easy to be a whiner, it's hard to be part of the solution. Life is short and life isn't easy... is this really how you want to spend it?

Well, sadly that is an oxymoron, right? What has government done well, ever? The DOD is based on miltary principles and strategy, and possesses an elite and more intelligent set than even congress before anyone gets their panties in a bunch. But back to the point. When government spreads the wealth (people actually believe that the poor and middle class have been robbed- but it's actually not yet!) into their own coffers, then no one can compete. Just rebel.

I think its pretty bad. I know for sure about teachers. My mom works in a tiny little school out in the country, there was one job opening, and over 300 applicants.

It's worse. Unemployment numbers are based on people collecting unemployment. Once benefits run out, you don't count. Real unemployment for those without any college could be as high as 26%
