I'm beginning to think that the past ain't all that bad. Relatively speaking:
"For the first time in history, a major nation — Canada — has surpassed the U.S. in household wealth. So much for Obama's hope and change. The lesson here is that free markets, not socialism, enabled Canada to soar."
"U.S. household income fell to its lowest level in more than a decade in 2010 and poverty rose to a 17-year high, setting the stage for the debate over jobs and the economy that will dominate the 2012 presidential race."
I'll say this: The past is looking a whole lot better than the present.
And may God help us with the future.
