At long last the average American is coming to the realization that they have been played by the "trickle down" gang.

The question as to where all that "stimulus" money go is finally taking the form of an answer; and it's not one they like?  The banks on a roll; profits are multiplying! Wall Street is booming; the DOW is breaking records as I write. The 1% are planning vacations again. Hell, the good times are back!

Then we go down "main street" in Hometown America and ask the person on the street; "how are you doing"?

Oooops! Sorry I asked.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans' confidence in the U.S. economy sank for the month of October amid the partial U.S. government shutdown and partisan bickering over the federal debt limit. For the entire month, Gallup's Economic Confidence Index was down 16 points, the sharpest monthly drop since Gallup began tracking economic confidence daily in 2008. Confidence improved after leaders in Washington reached a deal to end the shutdown, but it has not yet recovered to pre-shutdown levels.
