Recession my ass, this is a sugar-coated depression.

Definitely. I was out of work for awhile, but admittedly it was because I refused to take a job that wasn't related to my field or that didn't pay enough when I have a college degree . I thought "why did I go to school and work my ass off if I'm not going to get a job related to my degree?". I finally found one, so hold on because it takes patience. No one is hiring now because they have to make cutbacks, and the places that are hiring won't pay you what you deserve.

I don't care if I'm paid what I deserve. I haven't gone to College yet, so I'll take any job I can get. I'm just stuck a good way away from town without any way back and forth that's reliable.

Ah, bummer then - you are double screwed. Not only is it difficult to find a job but it is difficult to even get to the job that you find.

chrono eric, you hearing this storm? I'm so happy to hear one, but I have no idea aout the incidence of tornadoes or downdrafts / microbursts in Texas. Always seemed like they happen more in Oklahoma.

Yeah I'm about to turn off my comp for safety reasons and go watch it. I hope it is one of those Texas lightning storms with the lighting that crawls across the sky.

Also, it seems like tornadoes somehow magically avoid Denton for some reason. Every single one that has touched down within the last 10 years that I remember has touched down in every area around the city.

Friend of mine lives in OK, and IIRC he said tornadoes aren't that common. Probably just where he lives.

I can't get the images out of my head. It's one in the morning. I still need to sleep, thank you very much.

Recession my ass, this is a sugar-coated depression.

There are actually economic marker points that determine if it is a recession or a depression. For one, if I recall correctly, the unemployment rate needs to be around 15-20%. A quick search and it looks like the unemployement rate was 7.2% in December 08.

Yeah, it's a recession.

I hear that. It's why I don't like yaoi, it just ain't right IMO.

I have a midterm in an hour, and I realize my Thucydides is not as good as I'd hoped it would be. Argh. This will be exceedingly difficult.

Nb. for any ever desiring to study ancient Greek. Thucydides is a royal pain.

Yeah, it's a recession.

For now.  The cogs are in motion for the possibility of a depression.  Its already one of the top 3 recessions since the Great Depression.  And how long did it take for the economic "gurus" to put it altogether and  "officially" announce it was a recession?  A year?  A depression could sneak in right under the our noses at anytime.

If by a "year" you mean "a few months," then yes.

In about Septemberish the economy was "the worst it had been since 2001." Now the economy is the worst it has been since the mid to late 80's.

One of the nice things about Obama's presidency is that people have more faith in his ability to handle the economy than they had in Bush. Totally setting aside actual comparative abilities, that is no small advantage, given that economic health is largely (but not totally) a mental state.
