Reality Of Where We Are

Times are getting tough in this country, the typical middle class is no longer and those that were considered the lower class feel defeated due to the recession.  People are more cautious with spending money and those who are unemployed are having a difficult time locating work.  Employers looking to hire, take their time hiring because they have a diversified group of people with various levels of education, experience and age to hire from.  They’re extremely selective and won’t pay a person for their experience or skill.  If you think it’s tough now, WAIT!  There are more people (families) in the United States without food, a roof over their heads, clothes, shoes, cars and money that are living on the streets.  In order to just survive, these people turn to the state for assistance, organizations for food and shelter and some are committing crimes against one another.   Prices of gas are on the rise.  Commodities will follow, what’s next?  Have you figured it out?  Have you prepared yourself or your families for what’s to come? Do you think you should protect the ones you love?

Here’s the reality, courtesy of CNN today, February 26, 2012.


  1. Good post! Our country's economy is being shaken up pretty badly and it's not going to get any better. Our priorities are going to change, that's for sure!

    1. Betty, Thank you :-) Our priorities in life will have to change. No one wants a rude awakening.

      Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to seeing you again.
