Recession is when a neighbor loses his job. Depression is when you lose yours.
Perhaps the above Ronald Reagan quote is a good example of why the Mainstream Media is so gloomy about the economy.
If youre employed by the MSM, job cuts and downsizing is not only a fact of life, theres no end in sight for the members of the Media Pampered Class. Its easy to see why the MSM talking heads are so obsessed with bad economic news: if arrogance and conservative-bashing are no longer enough to ensure ones continued employment in the MSM, then the economy MUST be in shambles.

I apologize for the incorrect spelling of “changeing”....I pushed the button too quickly....I know it’s “changing”.
Changeing and hopeing.
oh brother...I’ll plead too much to do and too little time to do it in...
I hate that. But thanx!
I work in manufacturing of long lead big ticket items, 85% of our business is related to the petroleum industry (refining, production, pipeline) in 25 years I have never seen it so busy. We have four factories (US, Canada, UK, France) all four are sold out for 2008 except for some minor exceptions in Canada for limited product. France is sold out through June 2009
It is same with our competitors.
Historically, our industry lags the general industry by 9 to 15 months, as long lead items are planned for during good times and then purchased when the economy slows. This current boom is now two years and approaching three, with no end in sight. We have added double shifts, but cannot find enough qualified workers to start a third shift.
When a hurricane is coming why try to deny it just because the wind is only blowing at tropical storm levels.
