You ust don’t understand. Having less food is a good thing because Michelle Obama wants you to eat less, so there. As for being unable to afford retirement, heck, this just gives you more time to develop a bond with your co-workers. Why is everyone looking at this grim news as a negative?
A new NBC News/Marist poll that heralds American optimism that their personal situation will eventually improve reveals just how bad off many in the country are as a result of the sustained economic troubles beleaguering the national economy.
According to the just-released poll distributed by NBC:
— 43 percent say they are saving less, compared to 36 percent saving more.
— 18 percent say they have postponed a life event, such as retirement, for financial reasons.
— 36 percent have delayed a big-ticket purchase like a TV or a car.
— 27 percent have curtailed cellphone, cable or other services to save money.
— 19 percent say they have less food in the fridge than they did last year.
— 44 percent are either worried or overwhelmed by how much money they owe.
Well, you can opt to become a government dependent, which is the plan all along. So, how do the Obama lapdogs at NBC spin this?
Chuck Todd: Americans Bank on Optimism
Unreal: Here’s are some of the optimistic snippets from Chuckles the Clown:
“I don’t want to work more, but if I have to, I will,” he said.
“The price of everything is going up. The government owes everybody and we have this huge debt. It just seems endless,” she said.
“I have relatives who would like to be on food stamps.”
“I guess it can’t get worse, right?”
Just oozing optimism there.
