Times Is Hard
So I've been musing over the fact that the most popular phrase today, all most no matter what demographic is some variation of "Come on now, times is hard. We're in a recession." This statement is very true and very bleak. Times have not been this hard since The Depression. But what I find amusing about is that even though this is and will continue to be a devastating this statement is somewhat lighthearted despite its connotation. Its in human nature to true and make one's self feel better during a tough situation. So we make little joke to hide that pain and try and move on with our lives. But I wonder how long this kinds of thing will last before people can't make a joke and are lining up to jump out a window of the Comcast Building.
