C’mon Stan…I hear Wal-Mart is hiring!
I’m tired of hearing it. I’m tired of reading it.
I would say, in the last 10 months, I have not picked up a paper, magazine, or turned on a newscast and NOT heard or seen a headline that had a positive spin. Are we in such dire straights that there is NOTHING to look forward too? I tried “Googling” (is this now a word in the English language? It should be…) “Obama economy” and there were a gazillion stories about how bad the economy is and how much debt we’ve accrued. I am over it.
I know it’s bad out there. But is it as bad as every media outlet is saying? Everytime I go to the mall, there are people shopping. Everytime I go out to eat, I have to wait in line. Everywhere I look I see large vehicles roaring down the road. Gas prices are down. I have been able to put a little money away (to spend on a new axle for my car, I imagine. See the next story for THAT adventure) and my mortgage broker called the other day wanting to lock me in on a lower mortgage rate. So…what’s up? I realize that some big corporations are hurting…but I wonder if that is because of bad business practices to begin with. So they need to adjust. Nothing wrong with change. But there has to be a silver lining in here somewhere. Right? It can’t be all doom & gloom. SOMEONE has to have a positive story to tell. Is ANYONE doing good out there? Everyone has been hit by the economy, but is anyone SUFFERING, with no heat and no home and no food on their table? We’ve all had to make adjustments, but CMON already!!! Isn’t there ONE good story??? I’m just asking…
