  •  Amen to that. I don't miss him at all. (0+ / 0-)

    Growing up in MI, you realized pretty quickly that economics are cyclical. I can remember the early 70's - middle school where lots of white collar people got laid off. Pretty ugly for their white collar kids who thought that they had the world by the ass. Being a blue collar kid - I'd already been through dad's laid off and it's mom's job and UI that is keeping food on the table. Along with dad going hunting - ate lots of rabbits and pheasants when I was young. Assholes like Bunning need to live on the other side of the tracks for a month or 6. UI isn't a freakin picnic.

    •  I guess I was a green collar kid (0+ / 0-)

      When I was young, my dad was a farmer.  Later, he rented out the land, and worked, I think, construction.  i was 15 when he died, and was never real clear on what he did.  My roots, though, are on the farm, because that's where I spent my childhood.
