Where are the Jobs in a Summer of Recovery?

Union members hold up "I want to work" placards as they join a protest of several thousand people demanding jobs outside City Hall in Los Angeles on August 13, 2010.

As the summer heats up, it is becoming clear that it could quite possibly be the most active season yet when it comes to recovering our economy. There are Recovery Act-funded projects breaking ground across the country that are creating quality jobs for Americans and economic growth for businesses, large and small.
This summer is sure to be a summer of Economic Recovery.-- Ron Sims, the White House Blog
This is the death of the American Dream. Near 10% joblessness and no hope or change, propaganda can rescue this economy. President Barry Hussein Soetoro and Vice President Joe Biden announced this as the Summer of Economic Recovery; instead, millions of Americans have been out of work for more than 99 weeks and counting. They know we all know this is the end of American Exceptionalism; this is the end of the American middle class, as we know it. (see story)

Andrew Klavan gives a unique informative and comparatively witty look at president Soetoro’s Summer of Economic Recovery and the War. (see 4:30min video)

Though corporations, especially in the banking sector, are posting healthy profits, they are not hiring new workers. At the same time, government cuts are sweeping through city and state governments alike, threatening tens of thousands of jobs and slicing away at services once thought vital. Schools, street lighting, libraries, refuse collection, the police, fire services and public transport networks are all being scaled back.

America appears to be a society splitting down the centre, shattering the middle class that long formed the cultural bedrock of the country and dividing it into a country of haves and have-nots.-- Paul Harris

Democrats spent $787 billion dollars on a stimulus package that to date has not stimulated the U.S. economy.
