You don't live here. You did not go food shopping with me after work, and realize prices have gone up again, like they do every week. And I did not stop for gas then, although I should have, because I was out of money.
I could tell you about someone I know who was living in their car in a Walmart parking lot this summer, even though she had a job. She has now moved up to a horrible long-term hotel room. All because she can not even save enough for first and last month rent on a real apartment, let alone the rent.
I can tell you about all the people I know who went into foreclosure on their home, or had to sell in a short sale because their home is no longer worth what they paid.
Or about one of my childhood friends who had to move back in with her mother because she lost her job. Her mom is trying to live on social security retirement benefits, and really can't. My friend is so broke she came crying to my parents to borrow money for gas, and that was very hard for her.
I could go on and on about how everyone is suffering in this economy.
Seriously - our economy is broken. That is the most important thing right now. It has just been getting worse over the last 4 years.edit on 11/6/12 by BlueAjah because: (no reason given)
