Yes, prospects are lousy, but you're an optimist. Any of a million conceivable events, say, an Al Qaeda attack on United States soil, an Israeli attack on Iran (or vice versa), a blowup on the Korean Peninsula, trouble in one of the PIIGS, or the collapse of California, can kick off a recession if not a depression. And you seem not to give the politicians of both parties their due. They can screw things up with little warning in ways we can't conceive.
