    doesn't even BEGIN to describe what's happening in this country.

    It's a travesty.

    We need a dose of reality from people with big megaphones.

    Our electeds and the media have to start telling the truth on much wider basis.

    More than half of the U.S. labor force (55 percent) has "suffered a spell of unemployment, a cut in pay, a reduction in hours or have become involuntary part-time workers" since the recession began in December 2007.

    Thank you, MB, for your tireless work in illustrating that.

      but I'm expecting at some pt to see, "Jeezuz Tiny Asteroid Knife, why don't you and Kos change the name of your website to the FreeRepublicforPessimism."

      But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have laid my dreams under your feet; tread softly, because you tread on my dreams. -- Yeats
