The entire country, financially and emotionally, is upside down. Because of the economic conditions, loss of jobs, little growth in income, forfeit of homes, increasing expenses, communities feel like they are drowning, and powerless to save themselves. Introduce into this scene a cadre of blame specialists whose twisted and obscene logic mimics and feeds the communal pain. Now add in those in power who torque the pain by saying the obviously needed cures will only make things worse.
That’s why many are confused, feeling bitter, and looking for help in the wrong direction. The only certainity: the President’s photo opps will not create jobs.
