    Not surprised. Who's got money to buy anything you don't absolutely need. I sure don't.

    Exactly. The Stimulus has done absolutely NOTHING other than pay for state and local government salaries so THEY wouldn't be laid off.

    The private sector is where the jobs are supposed to be coming from but so far all of the policies coming out of DC are ANTI-JOB growth.

    No one has any fricken money so therefore retail sales plummet.

    I work in retail and last year was brutal. Many friends laid off who i worked with every day. I feel as if it will never reach prior levels but if sales can plateau i will be happy.

    Yep like 2008 retail sales and pretty much the same appearance by this president as the last one.

    This ain't no adjustment folks.
