We’re still falling off a cliff, but our rate of speed is slowing. Hoorah!
I dunno what to make of all the programs Obama announces here, except that it sounds like if you don’t qualify as a “family,” if you don’t have kids or a mortgage, and if you work for yourself, you’re on your own. I guess I — as a single, childless, self-employed renter — am not American enough to warrant any return on that collective responsibility Obama speaks of, even though I work hard and meet my responsibilities.
Oh well. I didn’t figure much was gonna change anyway.
