This is one situation where I wholeheartedly endorse burying your head in the sand.
I am behind avoiding the ugly economic reality like Oprah is behind Obama.
Like the Italian trains are behind schedule.
Like carbon emissions are behind global warming.
Like J Lo…well, just has a big behind.
The 25-year thingy you heard about was yesterday’s announcement that inflation is at a 25-year high.
Not to be confused with the worst market drop in 27 years, which was today’s news.
Unemployment? Up nationally and the highest it’s been in two years – while unemployment in the UK is at an all-time low, mind.
US wholesale prices? Up 6.3% last year – the biggest jump since 1981.
Michigan and Minnesota are officially in a recession – they didn’t wait for the rest of us. How rude. If they were Southern states they’d be apologizing for the shabby condition of their shoes and offering us the last cookies in their jars. Hrmph.
The upside? You don’t have to worry about tomorrow, Country Girl.
Now that Bush is selling $123M worth of smart bomb kits to Saudi Arabia, there may not be a tomorrow! Ha!
