    Wait, didn’t they have this story last year this time? And the year before that? And then the year before that? Hmm, noticing a trend here.

    And the government is responsible for teen employment how, exactly? Oh yeah, FDR era jobs programs that you are a H-U-G-E fan of… (eye roll).

    Actually Mifke, based on your belief that the stimulus was there to create jobs and spur the economy, it seems to me that ALL employment falls on the shoulders of the government….. so when it fails to stimulate non-teen employment, it also fails to stimulate the economy enough to keep those kids (who obviously NEVER spend or save their money and help the economy like their parents) employed….

    hmph… riiiight…. the CCC and WPA employed “teenagers” to build dams, and roads, and public parks…

    The government is always responsible, except when they’re not.
