Our Recession Is One Year Old Already!
It seems like just yesterday our little recession spent all its time wailing for food and pooping its pants, but it's already pretty big! Soon it will be all growns up and cooking meth in the back yard shed while it asks us for "rent money." The National Bureau of Economic Research says our recession is one year old, in the sense that the employment situation was at its very awesomest one year ago. Since then we have all lost our jobs and begun eating melamine-tainted cat food for sustenance. [MarketWatch]
