our “terrible” economy
Posted August 30, 2008on:
I don’t usually write about politics, and I’m usually not that interested either, but I just have to say this: I have had it up to here with hearing about how we live in such hard times. Yes, it qualifies as hard times if you’re one of the almost 6% who can’t find a job. But hard times for the whole country? That’s when *lots* of people can’t find a job, like in 1933, when unemployment was 25%. The Great Depression was hard times, and I would say the Carter years were as well. Right now, we just don’t have it that bad.
