Yes it makes one sad that the country is in a depression. Like the Great Depression. Unemployment is high, perhaps 20% or more. They don’t use the word depression or count persons who have stopped looking for work in their statistics.
The price of gas hurts the individual and the large economy. If business picks up, commuters and other demand will put upward pressure on price and drag on prosperity. Also I want to buy a big old car so this is cramping my style.
While I’m on the subject of personal complaints, I may mention that quality and availability of products is questionable. For example, it is difficult if not impossible to find Tylenol brand pain med. Milk and beer are toxic if not poisonous. And it matters not if these brands are imported or domestic.
Heck even Tums are suspect. Furthermore its probable the Bad Guys have gotten to my pharmacy to make daily living dicey. But it’s OK; I can go walk the dogs now.
