This poll is associated with the post about economy downturn made a short while ago.
I'm in the natural gas industry so as far as loosing a job I do not think it is in the forseeable future.
I do remember the enconomic turn down of the seventies and how my Grandmother and Grandfather talked about it. Also the energy crunch.
I do believe the free trade agreement has certianly hurt us and will continue to undermind our economy as long as we the people will permit it.
Corporate greed is a another area I wonder if the ceo's of this country could live like the ceo's of say Japan where the ceo gets fifty percent more than the workers and that is it. Not the several hundreds od thousands not counting all the stock options.
Another problem we have is the goverment wanting to take care of a lot of dead beats. Grant you welfare has a purpose but it should be just to help out and get a person back on their feet and not as paycheck as 75% use it.
Well that is my:twocents: DW
