    Gads.. I hope we make it as the... Good Ole U.S.of A...

    but, you gotta wonder......:dunno:

    ****:eusa_eh:

    Misery Index (12.76) = Unemployment rate (9.2) + Inflation rate (3.56)

    The misery index was initiated by economist Arthur Okun, an adviser to President Lyndon Johnson in the 1960's. It is simply the unemployment rate added to the inflation rate. It is assumed that both a higher rate of unemployment and a worsening of inflation both create economic and social costs for a country. A combination of rising inflation and more people out of work implies a deterioration in economic performance and a rise in the misery index.

    And it will be this way for a while I do not care if republicans control everything in 2012.
    there is no quick fix even if Sara Fricken Palin is president and saint.

    The only difference if McCain had won instead of Obama is that the right would not be screaming about the debt right now.
    No other real difference though.
    We spent decades working our way into this corner and it will take at least a decade to get out.
    A decade if we ever start taking the right steps that is.
