Crime Creates Jobs Too!
In light of the extended downturn in the U.S. economy and few solutions being offered by the nation's leadership, I thought it important to share some creative options for those finding themselves left behind.

With unemployment benefits quickly becoming a thing of the past and a U.S. social safety net one could drive a truck through, the current situation has understandably left the average and below average American without a clue.

For whatever reason, legions of Americans have been deemed unemployable. Perhaps, many just made one life’s mistake too many, maybe some just failed to keep current skill sets, maybe some just have a screw or two loose or maybe some are just a bunch of born losers.

Many now living like an Untouchable in India, they somehow wear an invisible scarlet letter that prevents any further access to the wonderful world of gainful employment.
Populating basement apartments, spare rooms, attic spaces and sagging sofas of impatient friends and relatives, the ever expanding loser class is running out of options as fast as they’re running out of hope.

Wondering what the hell they’re going to do with the rest of their lives, this new loser class could be the boil hiding in the cracks that, if not lanced, will certainly be a pain in the nation’s ass.

Short of getting a cup for begging, a cardboard box for shelter and depending on the generosity of strangers, what’s an American loser to do?

For those who’ve found themselves asking that question, I invite them to consider my response - how about a life of crime? A soon-to-be booming field of endeavor, a career in crime promises an equal opportunity, with high yield, tax-free income potential for the down-and-outer.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
