    Most likely because they have zero clue what that entails.

    I'm feeling more optimistic that the 53% are wrong. Not just 4 days of positives, but I've noticed more cars and trucks on the road again during rush hour. Oh the good and bad of anything. :lol:

    Why yes they did, at least any I've seen. My guess is Quinn & Co. hope that all the tools will forget this ever happened, why with trying to pay our taxes and all. :lol: I seriously must get out of this state!

    I doubt that there is anyone here who lived through the Great Depression. Those who have have already stated that this is nothing like the Great Depression, nor is it likely to get anywhere close to being that bad.

    We do have many more safety nets in place today than we did back then. The question now is whether we are going too far with those safety nets.
