I don't find it depressing so much as annoying, not jut in the US but the Irish economy is all over the shop. Seriously, I dunno WHAT is going on in this country anymore. Our government has problems staring them right in the face and instead they're pouring all the investments into the most ridic and unecessary schemes (not to mention private jets and pools for the lovely politicians). Top notch educational system, thank you, but our hospitals are a joke, the cost of living is sky high and it's no wonder every tom dick and juliana is on the dole. Hopefully with the introduction of a new government things will start to improve, else we're in for a v rude awakening. We've grown way too complacent and foolish since the economic boom in the nineties and the foreigners are taking advantage of our stupidity and working for half-nothing so they can send the money home. Poland is gonna be the place to be within ten years, I'm movin there.
Anyway the Chinks are gonna take over as the world's leading superpower before you know it so hopefully the US govt (especially with a democratic system) will accordingly wake up and smell the coffee.
