Um yes it is a deep depression.
This is not even close to a depression!!! do you see people lined around the streets at soup kitchens? the Milwaukee brewers for example are drawing more fans this year than last year and they will draw more than 3 million in two years in a row and also the brewers sold 2 million tickets before the season even started.

people who say this is a depression are half empty kind of people and usually aren't happy people.

Oh yes it is a depression by all accepted measureable standards (except yours). And yes I do see people lining the streets for food. Go drive by the churches and shelters and tell me what you see. Oops sorry you will never get the chance to drive by, you are lucky enough to have a job....still. There are

Think of it this way. In our parents time, people stood outside on street corners selling apples for a few pennies. Fast foward to today and look at highly educated well dressed middle aged men standing on street corners flipping advertising signs for $50 a day.

There are 5 million Americans out of work. And that is what your govt tells us. Do you believe them? Few do as your politicians and cops lie like it was tasty. It is probably closer to 10 million especially when you add in all those who do not count in govt statistics like the self employed and those who just gave up looking for work.

Yea I remember you started this thread and got slammed all the way through till it died and then some troll revived it.

Open your eyes man, people are hurting out there. Have some freakin love for your fellow human being.

Well, where I work, the pace has slowed disturbingly and we're currently trying to go to work share so that we don't have to lay off people until things pick up---and it doesn't look like they'll even pick up until next year.....so it's only a matter of time before things hit. You never know where you stand in the path of the wave.

No, it isn't. We are most certainly not in a depression and that won't change just because you keep saying that we are.

Ya know something? I could probably call you what you really are here and the anti free speech people would let me slide. Hell they would probably all REP me. You made a whole lot of enemies here.

The only thing worse then your big shot attitude is some one might actually be married to you.

I'm sorry that you have such a bitter attitude, but you shouldn't let it get in the way of rational thought and analysis. If you take a step back and look around, you'll see that the US is not in a depression at all.

And no, I certainly do not work for the government.

I do expect that we will get into a 'depression'.

However this, so far is nothing like a depression.

I'm sorry you are mad that people have jobs now Desertsun41, but jealousy green is not becoming for anyone...and those who don't agree with you have the same right to free speech as you. I hope you use this time to reevaluate where you career is and move to a more positive direction. Maybe a more positive and less blame filled attitude will help secure a new happier position.
