http://www.huffingtonpost.com/leo-hindery-jr/frailty-thy-name-is-the-u_b_921983.htmlWith all deference to Shakespeare, "frailty" is not "woman" as Hamlet pronounced. Rather, "frailty" is the 29.1 million real unemployed workers in this country and their fragile -- and, for millions of them, almost hopeless -- prospects for gainful re-employment. A frailty that has been wrought by thirty years of unfair "trickle down" economics, a dozen years of unrestrained greed by our major financial institutions, and the political evolution of the most anti-jobs, anti-manufacturing, unfair trade economic construct imaginable.
It's one thing to have put our workers in this tragic fix. And in it they are. It's entirely another thing for vast numbers of them to have little opportunity of ever finding a way out.
2nd paragraph says it all.

People say that they'd rather be here, even in bad economic times than any other country in the world. At least here, you're free to live on the streets and die on the curb, and people will just walk over you and leave you alone!
