If you think this recession is the worst since World War II, chances are you weren't born or working during the downturns of the 1970s and '80s, you're listening to President Obama too much or you're a white-collar worker in financial services.

Tough love? Horse feathers! Those that should be humbled are those that got us into this mess! The ultra-wealthy. The spoiled rich celebs and their bankers! Scum of the earth swine!
The middle class Americans built this morally bankrupt harbinger of despotism that was the United States of America!
