At doorway to summer, May a couple days away now::
NEVER in the past 30 years, have I seen a period at this point in time so bad and with such bad GDP and employment numbers across this nation going into summer period, and people want to believe things are better than ever? Listen to Rick Santelli this morning at CBOT too.
All this gadgetry pumped in TV adds today needs MONEY to buy it; and people are accumulating so much new debt trying to have the next techno-device when it is not necessary to survive with. Perhaps the 12/21/12 timeframe warned about AND ALL THE DOOMSDAYER SHOWS OUT HAVE SOME TRUTH BEHIND THEM?
Have you looked at your grocery costs lately or taxes or fuel or insurance costs? How is your income and job security? Do you know how to plant a garden and survive without a Government agency supporting you?
And since 1970's, LOOK at how much the population in this nation has grown exponentially while the industry/manufacturing jobs which fueled and supported this nation are now gone along with those "living wages" paid then to all middle class blue collar workers and their families.
1 in every 2 people right now are poor or in poverty in America- THINK about it!!! There is no more Middle Class today.
