Shocking Headline: 'Why the Bush Years Weren't So Bad'
Here's a headline I bet you'd never imagine seeing in a mainstream publication:
Why the Bush Years Weren't So Bad
Huh? Come again?
Yep. Counter to the doom and gloom regularly espoused by today's so-called journalists, things really aren't anywhere near as bad as what's being advertised.
After adjusting for inflation, the average American earns about $2500 a year more today than on the day of W's second inaugural. That same average American now spends a little less time at the office or on the assembly line, and a little more time on vacation or on the couch. He or she shops online for products that were unimaginable just four years ago. (How many of you read this morning's paper on your Kindle or iPhone?) The air is cleaner than it was a decade ago and life expectancy is up.
Read the whole marvelous piece for a refreshing take on the current economy you likely haven't heard in a very long time.
