A recession hit our town two years ago -- where has everybody else been?  As a real estate agent, I sold over $4,000,000 in properties in my third year of being an agent.  As a real estate broker in my sixth year, I've sold two homes in the last year.  (Homes average $200,000 in this outstate area.)  Small business owners in our community have been hurting for two years -- things won't be looking up soon either.  It's going to take time and a president that can gain the trust of the citizens of this country.  I don't know Buffet and haven't read about him.  But I can talk with people who are successful businessmen and women in my own community and see and hear how tough it is for their businesses right now.  They are losing money left and right, beginning about two years ago.  Are we in a recession?  Our community has felt it for quite some time now.  It's tough.
