Well, I warned you!

Hope everyone is ok with the DOW falling by 512 points.  I told you I can't foretell the future. Guess we'll just have to stick around and see what happens. 

JoeinVegas suggested that the two parties will just bicker and blockade each others ideas all next year.  I'm hoping he's wrong but he's probably right.  Especially since it seems as if both parties are out of rational ideas.  In our travels this summer we saw a lot of road repair; at least those guys & gals are working.

We saw a number of things that had been created by the CCC during the Great Depression.  Maybe we need some of those socialistic 'make work' projects to get things going.  Yeah, I can see that passing the congress!  The Tea Party folks wouldn't be the only ones coming unhinged. 

Gotta go.  Have a good one!

Fasten your seat belt, it's going to be a rough ride!

I think it would be a great idea. After collecting 26 weeks of unemployment instead of continuing it convert it to a public works paycheck. Except the contractors and workers would scream about the cheap competition.
But I understand a lot of our infrastructure (bridges, roads) is crumbling and delayed replacement due to money, so rebuild those.
