    I can't hold back anymore, I have got to say this: You can get a job! You can be off the welfare wagon, but you must WANT TO!

    I think political and social upheaval in China is only a matter of time now. Multiple tens of millions are out of work and fleeing the cities for the countryside. http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2009/feb/02/china-unemployment-unrest
