Today’s news:

America needs help and fast

Well, 2010 is six months old and still the economic outlook, while improving ever so slightly, is far from where it should be.

There are thousands of people still unemployed throughout the country, people continue to lose their health insurance when they lose their jobs, prices on everything from clothes to food to gas and mortgages and credit card payments continue to soar, the Gulf of Mexico is awash in millions of gallons of oil thanks to the negligence of BP and people are generally dissatisfied with the state of our government and the overall economy.

And let’s not forget the situation with education and teachers. There could be more then 150,000 teachers losing their jobs across the country due to the abysmal state of the economy. Heaven help us — we need plenty of help in this nation.
