See my post #38. Immigration has done more to depress wages in this country than anything else. We are still bringing in 125,000 legal foreign workers a month now. This includes new permanent residents (green cards) and long-term temporary visas and others who are authorized to take a job. This makes no sense.

My personal income has dropped a lot farther than 3.2%.

Actually just about everybody i know is hurting right now.

As a kid i saw the year 2000 and beyond as going to be incredible.
I was wrong.

What did you think would happen when a factory closes down leaving many well paid hard working Americans unemployed, one is the very wealthy shareholders made a few more bucks per share.

The same damn thing happened when they closed down the plants making horse-drawn carts, buggies and covered wagons.

Hard-working people lost their jobs and wealthy shareholders made a few more bucks per share. Which they invested in the automobile industry...

Within a few months, we will long for the days when the drop was only 3.2%.

Within a year, 3.2% will feel like pennies.

My income consistently increased the entire Bush administration. During the current 0bama regime my income has decreased more than 10%.

I own a small drilling company, a MWD company, and a coiled-tubing company. I did do heavy reinvestment in equipment.

2010 is going to be OK for me, if I don’t get taxed to death.

Oil price is up, but I am not going to hire a single new person; all contract.

Obama's Marxist plan right on schedule. What will it take to remove this Alien Enemy Kenyan Imposter in the White House?

"Obama would usurer in socialism"

Usury is pretty much the way he's doing it, too
