Is this "Hope and Change?" Lawyer's turning to topless dancing!

If Americans can't find work, can't feed their kids and maintain a roof over their heads, can the domestic security of the United States be guaranteed?

This is the story of an economy that does not improve and the lengths that some have to go in order to make ends meet. This is Carla's story!

This lawyer (not pictured here), now a topless dancer, certainly hopes that the prospects for the economy will change so that she can get off of the poll and back in front of the bench!

Certainly no one is trying to pin all of the blame for the continued economic crisis in the United States on President Obama. The rest of the Democrat Party is complicit as well!

Whatever economy the President "inherited from the Bush administration", a phrase that he so loves to invoke, he and his Party now own the economic cesspool that they have played the largest role in helping to dig.

So now what does someone like Carla do?

Attorney Carla turns poll dancer in a topless bar to pay the bills

While legally doing what you have to do to make ends meet is the American way, what happens to the 20+% of unemployed and underemployed Americans who don't possess the assets or rhythm of Carla and for whom dancing is not a viable option?

Currently President Obama continues on his campaign tour begging the American people to help him get his jobs creation proposal passed.

The larger question though is whether this bill is a true answer or more smoke and mirrors doomed to fail, but designed as an attempt to increase his popularity ahead of the 2012 presidential election.

Is it all working? Let's ask Carla what she thinks!

"When Carla graduated 10 years ago, she thought her law degree would be a permanent ticket to a high-paying job. But instead of selling her mind, Carla is selling her body. After student loans, debt, a layoff and unemployment battered her bank account, she now finds herself in an almost unbelievable position – dancing in a topless bar.

"Did I ever think I’d be taking my top off for rent money? No. I was in my mid-30s and had never danced before," said Carla, who asked that we use her stage name and withhold her identity and some personal details. "As a little girl, I never thought to myself, 'I just want to grow up and be a stripper,’ or, ‘All I ever wanted to do in life is climb in the lap of sweaty stranger and take my top off..."
