“Yes, we can!” has devolved into “Hey, we might.” - Maureen Dowd
"This recession has been pulling away the football from forecasters like Lucy and Charlie Brown." - Kenneth Rogoff
"The first week of August 2011 will be remembered as a singularly irrational, wasteful and shameful moment in the political and economic history of the United States. It reflected much of what is wrong with the priorities of our political elites and the obsessions of those who now hold effective veto power over our government." - EJ Dionne Jr
One of the statistics from the employment and unemployment statistics about last month, stated that the unemployment rate had gone down slightly, but that was because 193,000 people have stopped searching for jobs, leaving only about 25 million unemployed. But, what is going to happen to those 193,000? Does a similar amount of people give up each month, or is that when their unemployment insurance runs out? Will we see a super crime wave soon, or a rash of suicides? What happened to the dignity of a human life and the American Dream?
