Last year we lost over 20,000,000 jobs, millions of additional independent contractors also suffered income loss and not counted, and tens of millions suffered massive wage cuts......this year is likely to be a lot worse.  It is not the end of the world, simply the effect of Zombulation.

Our economy is homeless economy, gangs economy, drug dealers economy...oh and rap artists who sing and rap about gangsters make a lot of money too.

So lets call our economy 50cent economy. Because 50 cent is probably maing more monet than 99.999% of us all combined and lets call it 50 cent economy because that's all we have in our accounts after the job cuts, unrealistic IRS taxes, job exports to China, and wasted money on government.

Took me FOREVER yesterday to get through the Walmart store lines..... Always crowded at beginning of the month each month for a reason....  As more people are without a job here in Michigan, they have to rely on Food Stamps and other things that arrive at the beginning of each month.

You are overlooking the possibility that a recovery does not necessarily return to the way it was....over even to anything that you might believe resembles the way it was.

It's like trying to turn the clock back to our American way was in the 50's.  Although many, like myself, would find this a very appealing alternative to our current state of affairs, it simply cannot happen.

Time marches on, and the events that happen along the way shape our lives.  You're whole premise is that somehow the world must return to another time in order to "recover."

Throughout history, there have been ideal times and disastrous times.  Each one affects the future.  It's quantum physics.

There is no going back to the "recovery" you expect, Alstry.  There is only forward.  The direction we are going may lead us into more disastrous times....or to more prosperous times.  Only God, the timeless One, can know what will happen.

While your prognostications are based on logic and history, as we know, history is not always the best tool for prognosticating the future.

We, as humans are destined to repeat our past failures even while striving to improve upon our past successes.

It is called the human condition.

Now, I must tell you, that you are the ULTIMATE ALSTRYBATOR.  You continue to rant and rave with the knowledge that if you continue long enough, eventually you will be able to say to everyone "See, I told you so."

So be it.  If you have nothing better to do with your time.  If you have nothing more constructive to offer.  If you are simply sitting around in your underwear all day researching all that ails humanity, yours is a sad, sad existence.

God Bless you Alstry.  But can you change the channel.  :)

Understanding the problem is simply a basic application of mathematics.......there is no historical equivelent of what is going on right now except 1870s America when over 85% of the family farms were foreclosed.

The conditions going into this situation are much much worse.

The world didn't end in the 1870s and nobody is saying the world is ending is simply going to get a lot more interesting and at this point I am raising my unemployment estimate from 50% to 60%.
