Trying to be optimistic, hoping against a double-dip recession.
But signs are not real good right now.
Ha! The Fed is lending money to the gub'ment and the Gub'ment is handing that money to the Banksters, and the taxpayers have to pay it back. The flow of money is like the water cyle but the Banksters built a dam up stream from you. They hoard all the water. Good for them, not so good for you. The fed came right out and said this will continue through 2013 at least.
Dislike certain aspects of the TEA party all you want, but they did stand up and prevent the Gub'ment from borrowing another 4 trilion to give the banks. The economy will improve immensely, right after the Federal Government finds the political will to nationalize the six largest banks.
Righteo. I just love this gift from Bernancke, rock bottom interest rates. Oddly enough, these low rates don't benefit me one whit. I do not qualify me to refinance my mortgage (but my bank seems to think I can/should continue paying at my existing rate for a house that's worth maybe 2/3 what we paid for it and the unemployment rate where I live is well over 10%. Yeah. THAT makes sense).
Nor do I see my credit card companies lowering their APRs in relation to the prime.
So if anyone has any doubts as to how Joe and Josephine Q. Public are faring in this economy.... well, it's pretty obvious.
There was actually talk today that the TBTF's are zombies,bank stocks aren't doing well either.We should have let them fail,after all that's how the free market works,isn't it?
I used to be optimistic, but it's hard to stay that way when things are getting worse literally every day.
I know it's hard but try to buy American made products,the more non-corporate the better and use mom and pop stores if you can.We have to get ourselves out of this because no one else will.
The terrible economy has forced many to re examine their spending habits and opinions about money...it's done some good .but I know there are many suffering and the big businesses don't seem to notice..
life IS unfair..

With forum posts about the good and bad, mostly bad of Obama, Obama voters are constantly harassed by the question, "Are you sorry you voted for Obama." Honestly, no I am not. Look at our choices during the last presidential campaign. As I've stated before, giving what...

Yesterday Oblama signed the stimulus package and by the time the stock market closed the Dow was down almost 300 points.. Today he spoke about the mortgage bailout. When he started the Dow was positive and now is down 30 points the last time I checked. I guess it's not convincing a lot of investors...

Millions of people do not understand that we have a debt monetary system.The actual creation of money (always) involves the extension of credit by private commercial banks.This means interest bearing loans, so all M1 money in existence is debt. There is never any money created to pay the...

Yahoo censors their message board, letting mindless comments through and stopping comments that expose the banksters. I had a hard time getting through stating that the Tea Party should now realize that the banksters are extorting the politicians with threats about the demise of the 30 year...

http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/03/ … class.htmlIt should be obvious to everyone now that the left is intent on destroying the middles class. Worse they do this while claiming their policies are to protect you! Well that kind of protection I don't need!

It has got to be an employer's market, a cousin of mine called and said that he got a job. The employer said that he was to work part time and was expected to be on call virtually at all times the store was open. Of course, no benefits outside the crappy compensation. What the hell is going on...
