Jobless Americans are unhappy Americans. Happy people are more likely to do things to make others happy. Unhappy people are subject to magnify even the smallest of incidents and over react. Americans have pride. Sometimes I think Americans have too much pride. When people lack finances not a day passes that they don't think, will this ever get better? or when will this get better? It is difficult for American to look down life's road and see no progress, no success. Even Americans who can live a for unforseen years with no income are living in fear of not ever seeing an America they can live safely and comfortably again. Many Americans who never have had the safety and comfort of jobs, are feeling left out and coming to feel life today is life forever. This won't work for America. Any who resolve to live as today for ever will face challenges which will result in a downward spiral. It is inevitable that we either continue to change and evolve or we stagnate and die. regardless of race or class. Seeking solutions to making America better is not a unilateral sport. The only way to gain the best America possible is that we know what each group expect and can provide and we make plans and act on the needs and desire of all or none. We need a better America and it is going to take more than 435 in Congress and their staffs of 18, and 100 in Senate and their staff. It takes we the people to fix America like we need it to be fix. Jobs for Americans repairs problems for the masses.
