No more gravy train, folks. We've been living on the future forever. It's kinda like credit cards: Eventually if you use them too much, you won't be able to pay. Minnesota, welcome to financial reality!

The socialist society works great until the people paying for it run out of money. Sounds kinda like Minnesota.

This "recession" is simply a result of all us Americans thinking we deserve HIGH LIFESTYLE with LITTLE WORK.

As kids we played outside all-day ...came inside and enjoyed MOM'S "FREE" COOKING.

In the winter, went SLEDDING all-day long ...came inside and enjoyed the "FREE" CENTERPOINT ENERGY HEAT.

We didn't owe a thing for these "free" amenities ....NOT EVEN THE DOING OF CHORES (work).

Now those kids of yesteryears have grown up into the voting public ...STILL thinking that "life" ...has no "costs".

Hence the "entitlement" mentality so prevalent today ...and hence this "RECESSION" mess.

Sorry, we are going to spend this money on a new stadium. Then we are going to take your guns away, and then we will figure out how to hide our money better. We the people have to vote these people out of office. They are not doing what the people want.
