"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way."
2010 is the start to a new year, all are trying to be optimistic, but seeing these signs pop up all around, is quite unsettling.
California unemployment rate: 12.3%
U.S. unemployment rate: 10%
(For comparisons sake, California unemployment rate in 2008: 7.2%, 2006: 4.9%)
Come on 2010, you've got to get this country back on its feet!
