We are in a recession right? So where are people getting the money to shop, vacation, buy new cars etc?

Question by louise71594: We are in a recession right? So where are people getting the money to shop, vacation, buy new cars etc?
You hear it on the news and you read about in the paper on a daily basis, we are in a recession, people are losing their jobs, homes, retirement funds etc, however, during the Christmas season it was business as usual, despite what the media has told us, people were shopping until they dropped, literally. Homes are being built and purchased, cars are being sold, and during the Christmas weekend, my husband and I took a much needed break and spent 4 days in Florida, and let me tell you, the airports were packed, with many travelers going wherever. We did visit Disney World while we were there, and it too, was packed with people and lots and lots of kids. There were people there in groups, wall to wall. Okay, so my question is, am I missing something here?

I am not disputing that there are many many people out of work and losing their homes, but there must be a heck of a lot of people not paying much attention to the economy, because they are truly spending. We cut back by not buying Christmas gifts, and instead hosted a dinner, and told everyone, we were going away instead of shopping. We saved for 6 months, and used no charge cards, to make this trip. My neighbor’s daughter works at a local discount center and she said they were selling flat screen tv’s so fast they could hardly keep them in the store. She said most of the buying was done with credit cards, So what gives? Are people really not that worried about whats going on, are they just ignoring it and hoping for the best, is it more hype than truth to our economy? I know its been said that spending helps the economy, but Enlighten me, please.

No rude, obnoxious answers, please.
rawen, you would have been better offer not responding to my question! I wanted to get peoples opinion about spending in the recession, this had nothing to with my going to disney world, and how we went. We also did use credit cards to vacation, which many people are doing, putting themselves further into debt! thats my point! read before you respond!
correction, we did NOT use credit cards!
thanks to everyone who did put more thought into their answer, before responding!

Question by Benny: Do you really think the federal/local government has human rights as their top priority?
why single out blks for bringing racial injustice to light? all i ever hear other ppl talking about is… keep the racism under wraps.. don’t let it leak… what’s that gonna solve? sounds like complacency on a totally different level… what makes u think they’d do anything EXTRA for african american rights? do u not realize that there was a point when we had NO RIGHTS and are still adjusting to the hand we were dealt?!?! our histories aren’t the same… they met at a crossroad… i don’t understand. this world is truly in denial or u ppl on answers are… ur thought plz.
black heart: i understand ur point of view but u came here willingly… we were forced here and our living conditions weren’t worse in Africa… someone else saw us for profit and really could care less were happy in our homeland or not. Nonetheless we have adapted… some of us… others are having a hard time and ppl should not ignore that… and we should not be exploited! Mexicans are not the next slaves.. they are the next driving force of America… Mexicans will be more successful than African Americans in the end…. I can see that.

sometimes the hardest thing to do is to forgive and forget and let yourself grow. don’t let the details of life get in the way of making you happy. “Money is a hell of a drug”.
to be honest I think black people need to stop defining themselves from the past and start to define themselves from the future and point out where exactly they want to be. only then will they truly flurish together.

i’m mexican and they never tought us our history in school. yes blacks WERE slaves but who do you think the NEW slaves are… go head i’ll wait… MEXICANS… we mow their lawns, watch their kids, build their houses, make their food, and we work for the lowest wages.
Yet we never complain because if you go to mexico it’s fu
