Actually, its now the Obama Depression....he owns it....he either fixes it, or it does him in.

What intercst didn't quote:

"Venkatesh observed that when the recession began, the spectrum of vulnerability among freelance workers broadened, from the sex workers he is currently studying to those in other professions."

....


"Many of the coffee-shop patrons told Venkatesh that they had maxed out their credit cards and had no savings. He concluded that it wasn’t just many workers in the sex industry who were living at the edge of poverty — it could be anyone who had hung out their own shingle."


Yes, freelancing has its risks and rewards. No boss, other than your 'customer' or 'client'. Then again, when things are tough, customers or those who hire you also cut back.

My cleaning service here got the boot...decided $200/month was getting to be too much. I clean the house - about 5 hours....every two weeks...make 25 bucks an hour or more pre-tax.....not bad.....and I need the exercise...... and likely I'm not the only one who cut back.

Now who was it who let Fannie and Freddie get out of control? Right...Chuckie Shumer...... Barney Franks!....and Chris Dodd....all got together along with the librul dems to prevent Bush from imposing tighter regulation on Fannie and Freddie....who had been urged by the lib dems to lend away, regardless of whether the buyers could ever repay or not...... and that brought the whole house of finance down....

The taxpayers still own Fannie and Freddie..they are sinking into tens of billions of bad debt....each month......another 100 billion here..another 100 billion there..the dems are spending the country into bankruptcy.... and it started with ACORN and lib dems and the 'everyone needs a house' especially low income minorities!......
