A newly released study looking into the consequences of the recession for workers has revealed that seven out of 10 Americans say the impact of the Great Recession is permanent, despite lower unemployment and stock market gains.

The America people have be lied to stolen from and subjected to the worse governing bodies and supreme court decisions in modern times. It is a take over by the elites and their meat-puppets to rule America by any means as long as it is theirs. Unless the large number of lazy and noncommittal Americans do something to stop this it is almost a done deal. If you look at the broad picture of the world you can see how many other countries and government are taking advantage of the stupidity and nonsense that is the American government today. So urge people to do something or make sure their clown nose and floppy shoes are polished.

Noted. Of course they're just blowing up the bubble again because the Financial Reform bill really had no teeth and was ripe for picking over. Nothing will get better until our "bought-off" Congress does its job and imposes restrictions and further regulations; while making sure that those already passed are strictly followed. Not going to hold my breath.

This is just one of many, many reasons I keep seeing storm clouds on the horizon. Injustice feeds mistrust and anger, which in turn feed dissent.

jobs are now lower pay with few if any benefits, and can't see things improving any time soon, even if the stock market goes through the roof. The rich are getting richer, and we know when that happens the poor get poorer.

Actually, I am more cynical about the inability of the repubs to get their work done in Congress.. I've read more stories about the frolics and meetings back in their "home" states. Guess what, "It is all Obama's fault" or "We need to take away the EPA's rule making authority" or "We need the Pipeline for jobs" or "We need to bomb Syria" or "I support Burger King going to Canada because our corporate tax is too high." Like, none of these bastards think they can do anything in Congress except BLOCK, BLOCK and BLOCK.

Being cynical is easy.
How about being _angry_ with the current situation.

If we don't stop the current Teapublicans from instituting their agenda, I can promise you, it will only get worse.
If in fact, the Republican Party actually, could institute the measures in which they believe (God help us.), we could, in fact, have some semblance of rationality.
However, the fact remains that the Teapublicans have the GOP in stronghold and they have no idea how to escape.
The GOP welcomed the Teapublicans in, thinking they would help them, but eventually found out, that they not only didn't help them.......they hindered them.

I guess this is a time when they may say.............
Be careful what you wish for.
