Obama and his minions keep repeating the economy IS recovering. This week, unemployment went back up, and Austin Goolsbee has quit advising Obama on economic issues.
Back in the 1930's, we had an economic situation that is now called "The Great Depression." At the time, it was called a slow recovery. During the "slow recovery" kids stole apples. In todays "slow recovery," thugs are stealing Apples on the subway. I am not a big city kind of guy, but how can a criminal grab something from someone on a crowded subway, without being beaten unto death by the fellow travelers? If these thugs acted this way on an airplane, the passengers would restrain them and they would spend some uncomfortable time being interrogated. Then they would be imprisoned. Why don't New Yorkers behave the same way on the subway? I would.
The economy is not recovering, it is stagnating. Here locally, the sherrif's department just broke up a homeless camp, created mostly by drug use, but also by poor economic times. We have to do something to increase demand for jobs, or things are going to get even uglier than they already are. The Republicans in the House need to force Obama and the Senate to cut taxes and cut SPENDING, or America will cease top exist. And that would be really unfair to the future of mankind.
