    Yes definitely much better than I was 3 years ago. Not quite as good as I was 5 years ago but almost and things keep improving.

    Well I'am making a little more money but it seems that it just is not worth as much .It must just be me though because the government says inflation is barely rising.

    No. Economy has resulted in reduced wages, loss of job for my wife, Fortunately I didn't overbuy on a house, and never used it as a bank, so still rightside up on that. A continied rise in fuel will prohibit my boating hobby....I have pretty much already given up on Glamis and sold the equip.

    I am not better either. Making more money but it is worth less due to the increased cost of living expenses and inflation. Funny, one would think 14 trillion would do something to help the economy but when you have the clown posse running the show you get what you pay for.

    My neighbor works for a large business in North Phoenix. They have about 100 trucks and have averaged about 165 employees for the past 25 years. Today they have 6 employees and my neighbor, who runs the office and does the books herself these days, only comes in two days a week.

    Hate to inform you of this but the Government doesn't use energy and food in the inflation calculations.

    It's called the "New Government Math" Just like the way unemployment is calculated....They only count the people that are collecting benefits.
