    deal with the problem.  which is the fact that the jobs available to most people don't provide anything close to a middle class life style.

    we are literally living in a period of time where the economic models tells us exactly what we need to do in order to fix the jobs crisis; government hiring.  rebuild our infrastructure, bridges, cables under ground, renewable energy projects... there is no end to the good ideas out there that we can fund with virtually free money.  now is the time to pull spending on public works in the future into the here and now.  a massive public spending works puts money in the hands of people who will spend it in their local economies.

    the government just won't/can't get it done for [insert your reason here].  

    we're far from the point of even being able to have a rational debate about how we're going to ration out the american dream.  our media keeps us ignorant and focused on disractions...
