    I live in Las Vegas Nevada where the real unemployment is 20% that’s U-6 numbers, real numbers. I have not had a full time job in 3 years, and I am a 56 year old constuction safetyman. Las vegas has lost 100,000 constuction jobs here, 1/3 of our jobs and thats what the AGC says. Next week I start a 10.17 per hour -24 hous per week job. DID YOU SEE GOLDMAN SAKS ON CBS NEWS THE OTHER NIGHT/ LLOYD BLENIMEN SAID CUT SOCIAL SECURITY THATS ALSO WHAT MR. PETE PETERSON SAYS ALSO. Of course when you are a Billionaire thats ok. YA THE .05%ARE DOING OK ,BAILOUT WALL STREET, “SCREW MAIN STREET. Thats the American Way the BABYLONIAN WAY. Boy we Need the COMMIES today in 2012, they were right about Capitalism.
