Recession, This From Babe's Pet
There has been some debate about whether or not this country is in a recession or for how long it has been in one. Those of us who live close to where the rubber meets the road have had no doubt for a while. When whether or not something is a bargain is determined by how far you have to drive for it you know something isn't right. We have a group of friends who are involved in horseshoe tournaments across our state. Some of them will not be able to attend tournaments because of what it will cost them in gas to get there and back. When diesel fuel reaches $4.00 a gallon you know everything that is hauled by trucks fueled by diesel will cost more you know something is not right. The only people who question this is people with enough money that they are not aware of any difference. Or government officials who live on our dollar.
