“Oil’s at an all time high.
Stock’s are at an all time low.
Foreclosures and unemployment are on the rise.
The good news? It’s all in your head!”
Writer, editor Lee Stanahan mocks the Phil Gramms and George Wills of America in Tony Robbins type self-help parody. Wills says Americans are crybabies. Gramm says it’s a mental recession, and Americans are whiners. The reality is we’re paying about $4.09 a gallon nationwide for gasoline. (Here in Alabama it was $1.38 in 2003!) The DOW has fallen to around 11,000. Banks are failing. Homeowners are losing. The Republican answer: recession is a state of mind.
