    Remember the days when unemployment was around 5%, gasoline was just over $1.50 a gallon, the value of your home exceed that of your mortgage...........
    yeah, those were hard times.
    Good thing we've got Obama, eh?

    Interesting. You are paying twice as much for energy, your neighbor is out of a job, foreclosures are driving down property rate, but you're better off?
    Toke it up.

    No, but unlike those above me I live in the real world not some isolated bubble. My small business has lost 22% in gross sales in the last 3 years. I've laid off 50% of my help as well. I consider myself to be lucky that I had a strong customer base to get referrals from. Without that I would have gone under over a year ago

    Didn't happen until he was elected.

    Not happy about greed mongers stiffing energy. Mostly because I see it as directly responsible for hampering economic recovery. But God has been good and I am in defintely a better position than 4 years ago. No thanks to Obama, Congress, Republicans or Democrats.
