I wanted to end the year with a year-end- review but it seems that everyone does that anyway, so if you want to re-hash the good the bad and the ugly for the US in 2010 you’ll have to look elsewhere. So instead, I thought I would focus on the most recent political news and like so many other news worthy items this one comes from President Obama and his wife Michele, the King and Queen of America.
It is no news to anyone that the US economy has suffered the worst recession since the great depression. Americans have lost their jobs in record numbers. As of this post the true unemployment number is teetering on 17%, not the 9.5% the government keeps talking about. Those lucky Americans who still have a job have been forced to cut back, to scrimp and save every penny just to pay the bills.
