    It's just brutal. Will this recession ever end? If so, when?

    Why things are so bad now I just read today that Exxon Mobile had to lay off 25 Congressmen. Then I read that a truck full of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico. I know, I know, stop reading the right winged lies Whodey. But then to top it all off, I got a check returned from the bank marked "insufficient funds". When I inquired they said it was not me, it was them.

    After all that, I got to thinking about the wars abroad, and high rates of unemployment and a government hell bent on destroying itself fiscally as I watch my retirement savings erode away daily, so I called a suicide hotline. Come to find out, all the jobs had been outsourced to Pakistan!! As a result, the first guy I could not even understand, so they had to put me through to another. Then when I told him about thoughts of suicide, he seemed to get all exited and asked if I could drive a truck.

    I can't take it anymore I tell ya!!!

    Why is this ever so clever quip in the debates forum? Are you wanting people to debate your poor stand-up comedy routine?

    I thought it was kind of funny. The recession ends when whodey votes Democrat. It's all up to you my friend.

    I guess as soon as we vanquish the Tea Party jobs will return and the economy will improve and wars will cease, but do you think we can acheive this in 2012?

    Specifically, when do you think the recession will end and why?

    The Dutch economy is not in recession. Neither is the US economy. Do you know what "recession" means?

    Strong opinions and ignorance are a bad combination, whodey. A recession is defined as decline of GDP for two consecutive quarters. The recession was over almost two years ago, give or take.

    The real question you're asking is when the pace of the recovery will pickup beyond its current snail pace.

    That's what you get for talking to economists. As though their computations have any relation to reality.

    The recession started on January 20, 1981 and it has been going ever since.

    Hang on a second, are you actually suggesting Progressives are not the root of the world's (and his) problems?

    That is blasphemy in whodey's books.

    Indeed, we should be consulting crystal balls and witch doctors instead.

    Are you trying to be the Left's response to whodey?
