One of the daughters in the famous Dorothea Lange Photo of Florence Thompson from 1936 recently spoke out to CNN, expressing concerns about the economy and also sending a messege to President Elect Obama. There is more about the family in this Dust Bowl Book has more photos and information.
For the very first time King George FINALLY admitted that our Economy is in DEEP Trouble...the twit, finally said the R word...the cruel joke is that it is worse than ever, 533,000 unemployed for November- the worst in 34 Years...and Bush finally Notices ???!! "Experts" are now saying that we have been in a Recession for over a year, so my Question is how long will it take for Someone to admit that we may be in a Depression ? More than ONE in 10 Homes is in Foreclosure or facing foreclosure....( I suspect that it is higher once you also start counting in the Landlords that are being foreclosed...) We all have to keep our eyes and hearts open....and somehow take care of each other. There certainly is No Bailout coming to Mainstreet Folks....It is barely acknowledged that we are in trouble...Bush is worse than Hoover, so what shall we call HIS Tent Cities ? or should we just post a sign " Welcome to BushLand" and open up the Malls in DC for all of us....
