Americans' commutes aren't getting longer
Quote:
On average, it took no longer to get to work in 2011 than it did in 2000, said Alan Pisarski, author of the continuing series "Commuting in America," who attributes the stagnancy to economic woes.

He said, "9.8% unemployment does wonders for congestion."


On the merits of public transportation:
Quote:
"The average travel time for workers who commute by public transportation is higher than that of workers who use other modes,"

The greenest lifestyle is living in a cave and foraging for nuts and berries.

Yeah, green party wenches always seem to have a tendency to forage for my nuts. The only group more lascivious are chaste catholic schoolgirls.

Also please refrain from thread titles like this in the future, I don't want the Commander in Chief to get any new ideas on how to spin that he is doing a good job.

I'm vying for Spin Czar, or at least one of the PsyOps Techs. A gig like that, and I'd easily be able to get a job as a writer for SNL or one of the late night shows.

I think its not stay on 9.8% because the jobs that provided by over government have low payout.People only doing that job because they have to pay debts.Otherwise these jobs don't satisfy the employee needs and if the government don't increase the number of quality jobs than i think the unemployment rate rises again.

You are aware that there are other employers besides the government, right?
