'Mr. President, I need a freakin' job...'

(CNN) – Unemployment is part of everyday life for millions of Americans and one man finally decided to do something about it. He created a grassroots organization, "I need a freakin' job," to give a voice to the fifteen million unemployed.

There's also a billboard on display in Buffalo with the same message directed at President Obama, and that's where he'll be today as part of his "White House to Main Street" tour. Jeff Baker, the creator of "I need a freakin' job," joined us on Thursday's American Morning.

    Maybe we need more politicians go down to Arizona and live by the borders for a year with their family.I think they might change the way they think about Illegals?If they live long enough.

    ...and if you look at the statistics from the Bureau of Labor you'll find that the percentage of unemployment in each state correlates almost directly with the percentage of illegal aliens in that state...doing those jobs 'american's won't do'...

    Sorry, but our Presidente only cares about keeping jobs for the 30 million illegals and their families.

    He needs the American people to stay unemployed so they dependant on his Government.
