Note this line from an ASSOCIATED PRESS story I came upon- "...the economy is on the verge of slipping back into a recession."
Slipping BACK into a "recession?" How about SLIPPING FURTHER?
I'm hearing/seeing some increasingly-horrible stories among my own circle of family- friends and acquaintances and the stuff I hear/read and see daily isn't comforting.
Governments beg Americans to "spend- spend- spend-" all the while those same governments are raising "fees" and taxes to cover the shortfalls caused by citizens losing their jobs- homes- confidence and sanity- as IF we somehow magically come into money in a wrecked economy to PAY the new "fees" and taxes.
It's getting hard to see the glass half-full when it's cracked and frankly- broken.
