Are You Better Off Now Than You Were A Year Ago?

How are you coping in these economic times?

Last week we conducted and 56 percent said this quarter (Jan.-March) was better than the same quarter last year. And more than 69 percent of the 82 business owners that answered the survey said they expect business will be better in the next 12 months.

We now want to know how our other Patch readers are faring in this economy.

Please let us know by answering these four questions:

Get used to being not better off for a long time. We have lived high off the hog for too long in personal and Government debt, with an economically unsustainable level of Government services at all levels. Wait until double digit inflation hits all in about 40 months, regardless of who gets elected. The current economic strategies from both sides, be it trickle down or Laffer curve or stimuli are irrelevant and bound to fail in our world wide, 24/7 economy. It will take one generation, about 30 years, until the average standard of living improves for at least 80% of the populace. So make sure your belt has additional notches.

and one more thing Mr. Ron since I didn't get to finish the other day. You assume too much. Calling me a fraud, a fake a pretender. Yes my home may not be solar powered like yours but I do pay REC's. Maybe you have never heard of the program. Of all people to pass judgment on someone. Not directed at you but it is too bad that many Republicans pretend to care about the environment in which we live in. When we know for a fact that actions speak louder than words.

yes can't wait to get Obama reelected and remove the obstructionists from congress so the countries work can get done instead of blocked at every turn by the minority.
