People who play the "we've seen worse and come out the other side OK" card are neglecting the fact that Americans are staring down the barrel of
austerity whereas in past tumultuous times the government has actually increased
social spending and support for citizen safety nets. This
time around the idiots in DC blew their wad on corporate spending and coporate safety nets, leaving the citizens with said austerity to deal with.
We have seen worse times, but we have never
seen times this bad with little to no light showing up at the other end of the tunnel.
