What happened to unemployment?

What happened to a focused and determined effort to address unemployment?  I seem to remember this being a central theme of both the previous election and the State of the Union Address.  While our leadership is distracted by other things, let us consider a proposal which was suggested by a wise group of seniors who allowed me to share lunch with them today.  Their suggestion:  provide jobs for American citizens by supplying the majority of our country’s energy needs from our own resources.  These experienced Americans understand all too well the folly of being dependant upon foreign nations for our energy needs.  Imagine the jobs that could be created if we would just say no.  When will we heed the advice of experience?
