...And it looks like most of us are gonna have to take a bite. I've been out of work for several months now. I live in the SE United States and factories are beginning to close down around here. I went to school for the last two years to become a draftsman. But now, the horizon looks pretty bleak. The Second Great Depression seems to be already here but we are not feeling the full effects yet. I'm currently living with my mom and I've decided that the only way I might be able to make it is to go into the military. But, what I'm really angry :rant: about is that our governments and the people in charge have known that this crap could happen for awhile and they did nothing. Since the 70's we have known, but US corporations just decided to keep outsourcing infrastructure and finding more ways to get us to shop at walmart. Sure, I agree that some of it has to do with the housing crunch. But, only now we are deciding that having a lop sided economy is bad. Anyway, what are everyone else's feelings about this?
