Not going to get much better anytime soon.
Sad to see the effects of over stimulation.

I'm not working and I'm not spending money, the result is......

A lot of smaller towns are having a hard time. It also trickles down to smaller counties. Roads aren't getting repaired because there isn't any tax money coming in to pay the bills.

Yes! That is very sad to hear. I just finished reading about all the closures. From the point of business operations, it make good sense to close the smaller stores first and to wait and see if this economy picks up. I keep reading from main stream media that things are getting better, but I believe they are feeding the masses lies. They want 2012 to seem bright and cheery, just so they can have their choices back in for another 4 years. Those "choices" will add to their campaign "See, things ARE getting better" and after they are elected they'll pull the chair right back out from under you. They work together. The ones that take the brunt of all this is the residents of smaller towns. Gainful employment is hard enough without adding a slack economy to it!
