I noticed that the Savior was on the tube taking credit for a slight uptick in the economy this morning. But I pondered it all day and came to the conclusion that he has not spent any money yet, other then the tarp's and some bailouts of AIG, GM, Chrysler, etc. and these are not the people driving the economy. They benefit from the economy. The economy is driven by US and no one else. If it comes back are we going to stop the spending of the trillions that are not supposed to be spent until later this year or 2010? I think not as the Dems see a chance to get all the givaway programs they always wanted. This will be interesting to say the least.

Problem is...the folks that allowed this to happen...that ignored the facts or were just too stupid to realize what was happening, are now the same people that millions are trusting to fix it. WTF...over? Common sense tells us that if you hire someone to run your business and the run it into the ground that you do not look to that person to bring you back to solvency. The foundation is so broken that it's just a matter of time before the whole house comes tumbling down. It is inevitable.


Agreed. But, I do think things will get better in the next decade but ultimately we will fail if we cannot as a nation get a handle on our addictions to government deficit spending and our addiction to foreign goods.

Socialism is not the answer. It never has been nor will it ever be. Politicians on the left love the sweet coating of that bitter pill. It goes down easy but doesn't cure any problems.

The only way things get "better" is if Obama's massive spending inflates another bubble. But is that really "better". We haven't seen a free market in 200 years. Since the New Deal, more and more people have learned to become dependent on the government. Capitalism is basically dead.

I don't see it ACTUALLY getting better. Ever. We may have a bounce, if, like I said, Obama can pour enough money into the economy. Eventually, we will make present day Zimbabwe look like a cake walk.
