Recession is already here

-A A +A
By Thomas Elam

My mother recently told me that she heard on the news that they were looking for a recession in the next so many months.

I don't know about the rest of you, but personally I already found it a long time ago - what with scraping from paycheck to paycheck and outrageous bills being more than I make.

The power companies and oil companies are clawing for what I don't have left over. It looks like most of us already had the heads up on this way before the news because we're living it.

A recession in the next so many months, they say? Well, duh, Sherlock! I don't need the news to tell me I'm going to be broke in the next couple of months. All I have to do now is look in my wallet.
