I lived through a few recessions and one thing I noticed in each one of them was ..service got better. McDonald's got your orders through quicker, the person standing behind the counter at CVS seemed a little brighter. Not this time I'm guessing the government is paying folks just as much to stay home as they would have made at lower paying jobs. Too bad. Working at jobs for less usually encouraged people to keep their eyes open for the "good" jobs. People are always calling Obama stupid.....not so. This is exactly what he wanted.
