        From this camera view..
        It's as if he's talking straight to Nancy...
        As we watch her..
        We see she's not interest to any thing Our President Says...
        I ask you... How did any one so closed minded...
        Get the position she has..
        With the responsibility of America and Americans first..??????????????????
        Thru her actions in this video
        We need to impeach Nancy...

              Quality is important when a modern couple cannot raise a family with many of the open jobs Rowe is referring to.

                There is a lot of variables that can go into why someone didn’t apply or accept a job. Family needs might not match company demands, hours commuting don’t add up per the wage, some people go back to school, injuries, and yes some just lazy and don’t want to get hands dirty.

                  My son makes $, without working a "job". This makes him fall off the radar. But he's able to buy and sell, and just bring in more $ a day, then he could make post taxes. If you think he's living in my basement, your grossly wrong, he bought a home, does not have a mortgage, and is considering buying a second. He does work hard, and also drives a tow truck. Try that in a NY winter, if you think work is easy.

                    First Data gave numbers about sales recently. Apparently, Sears, and other stores are taking a beating, from likely kids whom have started their own amazon store, or ebay store, and do not feel the need to work for others. 2018 was a fundamental change in consumer behavior. There was no height in Christmas sales, they were able to shop 24/7. Stores that rent real estate and pay huge property taxes are in trouble.

                      sorry folks, capitalism has to work BOTH ways...Bosses can choose to pay what they please BUT workers are free to work or NOT to work for shitty wages.  PAY HIGHER wages and people will do the work.  It's that simple...shove it up your ass with the lazy argument.

                        Donald Trump is a piece of shit and most likely a traitor. He shows no respect and deserves none either. Don't ask me to respect the office until he does.

                                          politics have become garbage. both sides are more concerned with sticking with each other than doing whats good for the people which usually lies in the middle. The right were disrespectful to Obama and now do the same to Trump. The cycle continues. I love what Mike preaches about trade jobs. Society has come to a point where they look down at people who earn a living that way and push everybody to some desk job. As if trade or labor work isnt honest work. In my experience trade school was never even brought up as an option after high school and getting info on it can be a pain.

                                              damachine3 said: I don't care if it's a Republican or Democrat, when the President is giving a speech and you are sitting behind him, don't make faces and hold the speech in your hands, actively reading it, to take away from the SOTU. It's not about you for once. It's about the President speaking to the country. Extremely lame. I'm talking to you, Peloser.
                                              You are absolutely right! I remember the eight years that Obama spoke in that chamber all the Republican representatives were very polite and very respectful. That's what I remember! God, I love these meds they have me on now. I can make all my memories turn out to be happy ones. Sometimes reality breaks through, but, I just take another pill and I can remember what I want to remember. I can make everything make me happy again. Like one time I remembered a Republican called Obama a liar, but I just changed it to a Democrat peeing in his pants and I got happy again. Yaaaaaay!!!

                                                I was afraid of what he was going to say because I do really like Mike. I'm glad to be able to say I still really like Mike. I think to varying degrees I agree with what he's saying.

                                                  Apparently when FOX guy and Mike Rowe “do the math” their way as to how many jobs and how large is the population of USA, they don’t take into account the adults who choose to be stay at home care givers! Those guys figure percentage of population is too old or too young to work but then rest of working age according to these guys are slackers and simply not doing any work.

                                                      You know, I saw Mike Rowe on MSNBC once and the host tried to get him to accuse the Republicans of being the bad guys. But, he kept dodging his way around it all the while trying to talk about his program to help people get back to work at good paying jobs. Watching this I see he has gotten the Dodge and Talk maneuver down pretty darn good.

                                                        All these positive comments for Mike Rowe coming at hours when trades workers are normally expected to be busting ass in America! Makes me think maybe there is more than that one “pay for phony positive social media” operations which was shutdown in South Florida!

                                                          Love how Mike Rowe comes in with good common sense highly backed up with facts and experience.

Pretty much every company cries over Noone want to work in the construction business, while paying low wages. I myself work in this business, and I can say wages got better since my boss cannot find other stupid enough guys to work in this business, but it's not worth it to work your ass off if you barely can live off it at the end of the month. But I still love my job so I'm not complaining.

The SOTU is just low-grade performance art and it has been since the advent of television coverage. Ignore the whole act, it's worthless theater - no matter who is President.

                                                                                      • David Macpherson

                                                                                        Why is it so difficult for some to acknowledge what they see everyday? For instance, Trump has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honor, and no grace – all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.
                                                                                        So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.
                                                                                        Plus, most of us like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing – not once, ever.
                                                                                        I don’t say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing, to lack humor is almost inhuman.
                                                                                        But with Trump, it’s a fact. He doesn’t even seem to understand what a joke is – his idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.
                                                                                        Trump is a troll. And like all trolls, he is never funny and he never laughs; he only crows or jeers.
                                                                                        And scarily, he doesn’t just talk in crude, witless insults – he actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices and knee-jerk nastiness.
                                                                                        There is never any under-layer of irony, nuance or depth. It’s all surface.
                                                                                        Some sheepish Americans might see this as refreshingly upfront.
                                                                                        Well, we don’t. We see it as having no inner world, no soul.
                                                                                        Trump is neither plucky, nor an underdog. He is the exact opposite of that.
                                                                                        He’s not even a spoiled rich-boy, or a greedy fat-cat.
                                                                                        He’s more a fat white slug. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege.
                                                                                        And worse, he is that most unforgivable of all things to the decent: a bully.
                                                                                        That is, except when he is among bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a bully's sniveling sidekick instead.
                                                                                        To the two-thirds of Americans who despise Trump, it remains confusing how some continue to not recognize him for what he is; his faults seem pretty bloody hard to miss.
                                                                                        After all, it’s impossible to read a single tweet, or hear him speak a sentence or two, without staring deep into the abyss. He turns being artless into an art form; he is a Picasso of pettiness; a Shakespeare of shit. His faults are fractal: even his flaws have flaws, and so on ad infinitum.
                                                                                        God knows there have always been stupid people in the world, and plenty of nasty people too. But rarely has stupidity been so nasty, or nastiness so stupid.
                                                                                        He makes Nixon look trustworthy and George W look smart.
                                                                                        In fact, if Frankenstein decided to make a monster assembled entirely from human flaws – he would make a Trump.

Then how about “if you like the health insurance you have you will be able to keep that insurance”? Well not only don’t we have that same insurance, we pay more for much less! Have you read some of my comments here? I am a highly educated and highly paid professional. I also pay a lot in taxes! I have been told by the media and the political party of Obamacare taxes are paid by the multitude of cash only transactions by illegal workers crowded into some low rent slum housing and buying rice and beans meals at the local “roach coach” illegally operating on the street corner. I very often direct trades workers to implement my designs prepared in accordance with scientific principles and government requirements which I also have legal obligations to follow with costly penalties. More often than not those trades workers don’t care about the design, science, or government requirements anymore than they cared about the free public educations which our great nation proved them or they just fucking don’t know because they are shit hole raised uneducated foreign nationals! Now if you cannot understand my written comments and think listening to Mike Rowe’s voice or President Obama’s voice telling you what you want to hear is hunky dory well tough shit! Because there are plenty of us who voted for President Trump! Who understand what he not only vulgarly says but why he says it! So just like I have to fucking talk a certain way to the belligerent assholes who work in trades and rip them a new asshole to get the job done properly I can totally understand the huge problems President Trump deservedly so rants!
