If Hannity, Rush,Laura and Levin are so smart, why do they keep saying this?
Over and over again, I hear them saying that we need to rely on the private sector for job creation when the whole anatomy of the "private sector" has changed? The emergence of large chain stores like Wall-Mart,Sam's,Loew's,ect.,have been the source of many small businesses to close. The emergence and rapid advancement of electronic personal devices that do so much now, have cost people a ton of jobs. Newspapers are shutting down, Post Offices are closing. And can anyone tell me what defines a "small business"? You can't because there is no official number or size established. And further more, the richest people in the United States now have the highest percentage of all money by some 7 percent over the last 10 years. That's a lot of money. Additionally,more people do not have the old school mentality to re-invest in society in the form of job creation. Regardless of what Limbaugh and company say, I disagree, greed is bad and it has affected job creation in the private sector immensely. The size of the average home increased ridiculously in the last 25 years. A couple and 2 kids in a 12 room house...that's not overkill? And seriously people...does anyone have any idea how many "private" companies depend on Government to survive? Lockheed Martin...URS Corporation...Jacobs Engineering Group...Boeing...Raytheon...Hewlitt Packard...Dell Computer Co..... and the list goes on....and on. I am sorry, but it is sad that people like Rush and Hannity have so many buying in on their nonsense. How many of you really think the way we looked at the private sector 50 years ago can be applied to 2010?

I'm sorry you're saying homes getting bigger is a bad thing? The drive to do better for yourself and your family is what moves things forward. If you want to live in North Korea and worship the Dear Leader, be my guest.

This is just too simple to understand. Why is it so hard for you. If public sector jobs are paid for by taxes...and taxes are paid by private sector industry how does anyone get paid if all jobs are in the public sector? Where would the money come from?
