    • Political activism? This is democracy at work! The body politik…not parties, not candidates, but the people marching for what they believe in … jobs for Americans!

      • Provided by whom, madame?

        You’re marching to create jobs? And that will get you what?

        Will that cause a businessman to determine that he must hire you?

        Do you think you and your ilk are not unemployed for a reason?

        Like farmers will not plan in arid soil, job creators will not create under the threat of a government gun.

        You may call that injustice, but that is reality.

        Loot the rich, tax the upper middle class and you will still have no jobs created.

        Keep electing those who would cause loot from the unborn and very soon you will see the starvation that those policies bring on.

        If you want a job, go create one yourself.

        • The rich are creating jobs even though they are making more profit than ever before. Tickle down economics is a right wing myth and lie. The rich have been looting the middle and working class since history began exploiting the sweat and blood of workers to stuff their pockets. Live in the real world sometime.

  1. another march should be in the plans right arter this one,the under served population need a voice.I predict a lot of talk about jobs and health care and no actions/the march is action but more is needed
