I for one, am getting really ticked off with the constant bombardment of all the doom and gloom statistics being thrown at us by the TV talking heads, the newspapers, and radio broadcasts. Actually what really bugs me is the bias in the reporting of facts and the negative spin being put on them.
The Unemployment rate is now (nationally) 8.1 percent-----great headlines how 650,000 jobs were lost in the month of March. (no mention of how many jobs were created) no mention of the fact that if 8.1 percent are unemployed, that that means 91.9% ARE EMPLOYED. Yes things are tough right now, and excesses in the economy are being wrung out. Gone are the days when realestate increased in price 20-25% a year. Gone are the days when anybody with a smile could be handed a zillion dollar loan to go out and buy a new home or a bigger home----we are going back to a more realistic level where one is required to put down more like 20% , and then make enough income to support the resulting monthly loan payment.---but again I am getting off my point.
The majority of people still get up and go to work everyday, people still buy clothes and necessities, the sun still comes up in the East and sets in the West. People are still taking vacations, eating out, going to the theaters, etc, etc, etc.------things are NOT as bad as the press reports, you have but to l.ook around and see for yourself----the world is not ending , not even with the Democrats in office. (sorry the devil made me say that)
