In short, Stein says No Way, No How and I believe him. I think hes one of the sharpest minds in America today. (Therefore his movie, Expelled, has been effectively banned from public schools and dismissed unseen throughout academia!)
Briefly, Stein observed that of the unemployed he knows, many have poor work habits and difficult personalities. At the moment Im unemployed, and Id have to concede that shoe fits me pretty well. But Im unemployed more by choice than bad luck. Most of us are if you really digwere not willing to take ANY job.
I know how to get and hold a job, here are my rules and they havent failed me yet (however I have failed to follow them a few times):

I used to like him but he is an arrogant jerk anymore.
Stein lost any shred of credibility in my eyes when he initially called the Housing depression “just a tiny blip” in the overall economy.
Some tiny blip, huh?
Also....He was a big supporter of Al Franken for Senate.
Of course, he has some faults, but his movie Exiled was excellent. With everyone, take the credible things they say and discard the cr*p. No one is perfect and everyone in media has to have a little bit of “arrogance”. Supporting Al Franken had to be his stupidest moment, though. Ben should apologize big time for that one.
Compared to the crash that’s [quite likely] coming, yep... it was just a blip.
Even when he p!sses me off, Ben Stein is still the smartest guy in the room.
He may be smart, but he also one of old bendover for the Democrat Republican.
This is crap. Why is the article buried in a link to a link to The Constitution blog?
Besides not being completely honest, it’s evident the first half dozen posters didn’t even read the article.
Stein is great!
Stein’s article is one link in. I guess you missed it if you didn’t read the first sentence.
