OUR ECONOMY SUCKS
If you think this hub is going to be me venting, you're right, OUR ECONOMY SUCKS. I want to personally invite the boys in Washington to come to work with me for one day. I sell construction equipment and I work with the common, everyday, hard working, show up sick or not, middle class, make the world go round, blue collar worker. I work with the contractors, landscapers, and farmers of this world. Don't tell me the economy is getting better when I get phone call after phone call from a guy who is trying to sell his equipment because he cant stay in business. It's an absolute dog eat dog world for these guys and it's to the point where they have to under bid the job just to get it and all they do is break even, and all that does is just prolong the agony. My heart goes out to these guys. They are some of the hardest working people on this earth. But boy, if you watch the national news they say things are getting better all the time. It scares me. What happened to America? Where a man or woman could start a business and work their tail off and make a decent living. I DONT WANT TO SOUND LIKE A PREACHER OF DOOM, BUT THIS COUNTRY IS IN BIG TROUBLE. It's not America anymore. It's been so depleted by every body's rights by people that are wrong. Not just the economy but morally. This 'if it feels good, do it' attitude is killing us. Nothing is considered wrong anymore. And God forbid you mention that dirty word 'sin'. I believe this is still the greatest nation on earth, and I'm very proud to be an American, but its future scares me. If all of us would stand up for some of the little things that are right, we could make a difference. Instead of all these weirdo groups that scream bloody murder if you step on their toes. You know what it is? It's that the average common man doesn't have time to complain about everything because hes too busy making an honest living, raising his family and maybe even going fishing on the weekend. My point is WE THE PEOPLE need to start being heard. If I sound a little frustrated that's because I am. I love this country and don't want to see it get any worse than it is.
