The recession is over, economists say, but the pain isn't

The National Bureau of Economic Research declares that the turning point came in June 2009, making it the longest downturn since World War II. But, the group notes, the economy still hasn't returned to vigorous growth.

What we have here is a failure to communicate.

Well anyway, I've been saying for a while that this is nothing new. When you have huge tax cuts, deregulate wall street, and pretty much look out for the few wealthy folks over the whole nation like we've seen in the president Harding, Reagan, and Bush administrations, you get the crap that we have now. These boom and bust economies.

If the economy was humming along like the good old days and we taxed the rich at 99% we couldn't balance the budget... we spent over 100 billion in interest this year alone on our debt, we need to close some government offices... I say start with the failing Department of Education...simple let the states fund education.
