I've Been Noticing - Nothing Is Getting Better...... [View all]

How much pain are we supposed to endure? I almost hate getting up in the morning and putting on the news - it's almost all bad. The old saying - the hurrier I go the behinder I get - seems to be my theme song now. Prices are going up on everything while the volumes go down. My home is worth less today - but I'm paying more property taxes than ever. Gas is going through the roof her in Illinois. Nothing is fun anymore. Everything is a decision between to situations that are bad and the lesser of two evils isn't even a good option anymore. When is this all going to stop? When are things going to get better?

I guess I'm just feeling overwhelmed this a.m. I'm almost sure that more people than not feel the same way. How can we make it better?
