    I think/hope we may have leveled off. Though another "correction" in the market has been predicted and it could get worse then.

    You better hope not, your earlier prediction didn't pan out so well and I'd hate to see you mocked...

    My oldest son just got layed off from very good job that deals with factories and manufacturing.

    Just not enough business to keep people working in his field.

    Actually, I am sure that the unemployment total is already over 10% but most likely not officially because there is a large group of people who have run out of unemployment bennies that still don't have a job. I wager it's been over 10% for some months already... It's a shame so many people are out of work especially now that we're getting ready to move into the holiday season. Sucks, huh?
