Fundamental transformation.

[T]he number of people not in the labor force which in March soared by a massive 663,000 to a record 90 million Americans who are no longer even looking for work. This was the biggest monthly increase in people dropping out of the labor force since January 2012, when the BLS did its census recast of the labor numbers. And even worse, the labor force participation rate plunged from an already abysmal 63.5% to 63.3% – the lowest since 1979!

The booms of the 1980s and 1990s are now gone, destroyed.

Now is just the perfect time to turn on a magnet and attract a few million more workers from outside the US, no?

Let's look at the big picture, O.K.?
Since USA's founding, by and large,significant historical advances have been made in all three major areas of the World's social/economic development (these past 233 years), to wit: 1)land, 2)labor and 3) capital.
Thanks to capitalism's formulations (Invisible Hand, anybody?) coupled with a US Constitution framed so as to allow every individual's pursuit of "life, liberty and pursuit of happiness",led by "Our Creator," these advances leap frogged and expanded into every American (read: American Exceptionalism) livlihood and subsequently every other nation's, too.
America was and is a success story. It's Founding Fathers carefully set out a blueprint for success, both for public and private sector's actions, deeds and philosophy.
Since early 1900's, America has had minority factions carping at this success (lead by current USA administration), complaining about this distancing of the World's most successful enterprise (America) as shameful and detrimental to all World nations, economies and social fabrics...a predatory destructive force to every other nation, if you will...ergo heap upon this nation an insurmountable debt load, designed to collapse it, along with "social engineering" of USA's 1st, 2nd, and 14th amendments . America's successes, per these minority carpers, must be reigned in...stopped and reversed. Enter Cloward-Piven, Alinsky and radical Progressive New Left Activists(PNLA's). Coupled with IT electronic development, these minority carpers now seek to destroy America's successes by decimating and shredding Founding Fathers blueprints of: US Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence. Even their Federalist Papers are up for shredding, too.
Question before Americans is the following: 1)Should America's past, present and future successes continue as designed by our Founding Fathers or 2)should a New set of Modern, re-written norms be enacted, altering and evicerating (by a minority sector of Progressive New Left Activist [PNLA]carpers) its story of successes?
Which will it be? The former (Founding Fathers) is a guarantee of a bright future! The Latter (PNLA) is definitely a path leading to failed re-written norms, altered legislations, evicerated government, and a dominant Executive...just like other failed nation/states and economies. Pray. Amen. God Bless America.Also,Say NO to increasing the debt ceiling!

Don't confuse 'workers' with 'voters'. Depending on which side of the isle you're on those illegals are either 'workers' or 'voters'. Its a win-win - don't you see that?

We watched the morning news today to check the weather, and the Sequester was the reason given that the March 193K new jobs figure was lower than the 235K figure that the experts predicted. Nothing to do with gas prices, Obamacare, regulation, etc.

Really, I wonder why the morning anchor just didn't hold up the DNC press release and quote it verbatum.
