How bout a red white and blue lure chicken? rsHow this:
Chickenboy speaking from the top of his lungs, "USA stop worrying and get back to business as usual!"
"The Sun comes up in the morning, I am going to come up with, it is time to get back to business!"
The 80's hurt really hurt the oil field states - Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, etc. I know; I got the axe in 1984 in Houston. Unfortunately, this "recession" is hurting the whole country.My Daughter and 5 fellow workers got laid off in Tulsa Oklahoma 2 weeks ago...She was with company that did engineering and drafting for gas pipeline company expansions...
Not the time to be spending any money on anything you really do not need to live...
Remember the 1980s? same #$#@ ...different year...
I don't like seeing anyone get hurt but I have to agree with this. Why should only a few (or many) individuals have to be the only people that suffer. Every company talks about team this and team that until a lay-off occurs. Then the poor receptionist or marketing guy is let loose. I know people are going to disagree with this but, if there a just salary cuts, then maybe everyone can keep their job.I agree. I'm tired of hearing about companies laying off. I'm sure it's necessary at times. I wish more companies would look for other ways to cut costs. I'd rather see salary reductions than layoffs. Cut the salaries of the CEO's and other overpaid hotshots.
imo...the "prosperity" we were seeing prior to this recession was a facade. the housing industry was booming on shaky home loans, the energy industry on tricky accounting, stocks were way overvalued, etc....there were some solid investments out there, but we were in get-it-now and get-all-we-can mode. this recession will correct a lot of that, but it'll be painful for some and prosperous for others. those with capital will get bargains right now while those with debt will struggle.
i think the economy will slowly get better, but not as "good" as it was pre-recession, for a while. slow, steady growth is good...i think we're on the right track (except i don't think we should have bailed out the failing companies).
