Although we may disagree at times, we can all agree we live in the greatest country in the world. Have a safe holiday.

As a woman I am particularly thankful to have been born in the US. My life would have been very difficult had I been dealt the fate of being born in one of several other countries.

Hopefully, America will recover from the depredations of this administration and the bigotry, racism, xenophobia, sexism, fascism, attacks on our environmental and wildlife protections that has been thus far fostered and embraced.

of course, bring your hatred into a very civil conversation.

I’m with you. Sorry, call me a curmudgeon but I feel it’s pretty far from the best.

I can’t believe what the mention of Pizza unleashed.

Embrace the Pepperoni Alana33.

Resistance is never futile but enjoy your pizza.

Independence Day is about celebrating the results of RESISTANCE.

Sorry people, thought I'd bring a nice Happy 4th and some people can't let go of their hatred. Anyways, our country is GREAT, lowest unemployment since the 70's, just read an article that companies are actually struggling to find employees at this point. I know we are feeling that here where I work.

Just remember in many countries, you wouldn't even be able to have this forum to vent, discuss topics or say hello. Turn off your computer and phones for a month and you will realize the freedoms we do have.

Also I vote for PIZZA!!! And yes the boardwalk pizza is great, I love the one with the egg on it. Have a great weekend everyone.

This is nothing new. Even at the bottom of the last financial crisis with high unemployment companies in general were still struggling. Companies hiring skilled workers typically don't want to train OJT, they want a near perfect fit out of the starting gate. Or they may be willing to train but struggle to find the perfect fit of soft skills they are looking for.
