911 changed many things, Business dropped off, costs of EVERYTHING went up. Kinda like a stock market correction, EVERYTHING is getting back to it's pre 911 prices (except gas). Considering inflation and turmoil in the middle-east, gas is still not that bad. As a business owner I hear all the "bad" news about the economy but quite honestly I don't see it. Seems to me as prices have corrected themselves over the last 2 years this is the only thing Democrats have to bit(h about.
How many of you remember when interest rates were 18-20%? (Our business bought a new building at 18% in the early 80's!!!!)
