Ignore what is happening to the stock market. Ignore what the media is praising about the economy. The rosy picture being portrayed is a lie. Europe is faltering. Unemployment is still high. Many cities in this country are going bankrupt. Housing is still dismal. The government is still spending. The false image the media been praising is due to the world banks flooding the market with cash. It is a temporary fix, but it is prolonging the inevitable. This country is still in trouble.
In today’s CBS News poll:
Compared to four years ago, is your family’s financial situation better today, worse today, or about the same?
The survey finds 20 percent say better today, 37 percent say worse today, and 43 percent say “about the same.”
