    Watch the map turn black as the Democrat party policies take effect.

    And it would have been different had Palin been elected?

    But all we heard from the right in 2007 was how great the economy was?

    Wow! That's horrific to see in time lapse.....almost like watching a bad call/play on instant replay. :(

    What an awesome map! Strange how the unemployment rates went up right after the Democrats took control of Congress.

    I'm afraid to. I've already been wiped out financially this year. I can't imagine how bad it's gonna be next year. :eusa_eh::eek:

    Nope, that's no coincidence.

    Big (and small) Business (which means jobs) don't trust Democrats. That's a fact jack.

    When Democrats are in control, they collect all their marbles ($$) and (jobs), and hold onto them until there's a more business-friendly government in place.

    Meanwhile Democrats get to buy votes by helping out the newly poor and unemployed, giving them loads of freebies and telling these people how bad the Republicans are.

    Vicious cycle.

    When republicans are back in power, that map will change again....it will lighten up to 3% or less.

    That'd be my guess.

    Sorry to hear that. Lots of people around me are having a hard time right now.
    The worst thing is I don't think it is going to get better for a while.
    I have been giving away $1,000 per month this year outside of some family support I am doing. Sometimes to a food bank and sometimes directly to people in need. It is always directly targeted though and not thru a general agency with too much overhead and high paid executives.
    It is not enough but it is what I can afford to do.

    Best of luck to ya and hunker down as best you can.
