Recession anyone?

Today it was announced that we are officially in a recession and have been for a year...so what happened? the stock market tanked!

I felt like DUH!

Why is this news to any thinking person? We all know we are in recession...

Are we so stuck on an idea that we can't trust our own brains and need to hear stuff from others before we believe it?

And why is our country ruled by the stock market? It's been an obsession of late...

Wall Street is an artifact: it can be manipulated - it's ruled by emotions and power and has little to do with real lives!

And stocks going up and down doesn't create needed jobs or raise salaries...stocks don't hire !

The recession isn't always a bad thing! Most people don't realize how much money there is out there. During economic times like this, there is more money to be had than ever. Because of the bailouts and economy, lenders are bending over backwards to bail you out too. Believe it or not, there is people getting tons of cheap money nowdays to start businesses, buy homes, pay off debt, and more. Profit from Recession
