Discussions here have recently touched on the topic of Doom & Gloom. As Warren Zevon so eloquently put it, *The Shit has hit the fan". I try to remain upbeat, and will fight like hell to stay afloat as the Bush Bankruptcy disaster seems to boomerang through our lives.
Even thought the sun may shine and I personally try to remain positive and upbeat, reality keeps imposing it's dark shadows.
The local newspaper reports unemployment in my county of residence at 11.9%.
The State is @ 9.9% unemployment rate.
The December 2008 # was 9.4%
January 2008 it was 6.2%
It is the highest level of unemployment rate in more than a quarter century.
The number has more than doubled in 12 months time. (Register Guard).
I love sarcastic humor, and I could really use a laugh now. I am scrambling to be positive, and keep it all together- but these jabs at the situation are the best I could come up with. We should invest in some sturdy boots-- we are going to be needing some heavy duty bootstraps to pull ourselves up with. We are officially in *Bootstrap Mode*. Humor me.
