You know the old joke about the difference between a recession and a depression: A recession is when your neighbor loses his job; a depression is when you lose your job.
I found out today that it is officially a depression. They told us this morning that they are closing the chemical plant where I have worked for the last 34 years.
I hold our former idiot President, George W. Bush, personally responsible for running our country into economic ruin. Those people who voted for him twice also share much of the blame.
