With unemployment rates hovering aroud the 9-10% range, where are people finding the money to spend for the holiday? CREDIT! Ever notice when the economy is in a slump, how the credit card commercials increase? If the people who have jobs are making decent money, then why aren't they giving more to charities? Why not give a donation in honor or memory of someone?
And really? Why do oil prices always increase when there are more people out driving? Isn't ONE helicopter pad ENOUGH?
Bah Humbug! Merry Christmas and Peace to everyone!
