    but everybody is too cowardly to call it that.

    Instead they use the term double-dip recessiom

    And it is all Bush's fault.

    The first Great Depression had 25% unemployment.

    This one has about 20%.

    Be patient.

    28.7% is not an unrealistic 2012 goal for Our Kenyan President.

    United Way is partnered with these clowns. So now every time you see a United Way commercial during the NFL season, think of all those free phones they are passing out. And I'm sure those getting the free phones will be the same folks with those nice big flat panel TV's with Verizon FIOS service. Meanwhile I will be watching the game on my analog TV (with converter box) using rabbit ears. How long before it will be a "right" to have free TV?

    I went on their website, part of their sales pitch is "join the thousands who stopped paying cell phone bills"

    Good Lord.. we're in trouble.

    I know what you mean. When I went to their website and read their pitch, I thought my head was going to explode. These freebie entitlement programs are so out of control. I don't expect to see United Way doing TV ads showing them sponsoring this program. They have to know the majority of Americans would feel this isn't a good use of donated money. I guess those heading up United Way are hardcore socialists. But I have to believe there are many liberals who think this is a ridiculous entitlement. If not, then I give up all hope.
