Well, I have better insurance than I ever have due to BCBS being scared shitless of NC's population supporting competition for them here. Grant money for science and research is already coming back, and start-ups and small businesses are doing better now via small business funding, which was at a relative stop.
I'm sure you and I would disagree on the importance of small business versus big business, but I live where the "new, invention economy" is a large part of our day-to-day, and large business, big pharma, and "core industries" keep getting hammered while the companies that have embraced the next gen of money in America is growing. Our education system (not representative of the rest of state, which is completely red) is also getting better, faster than other districts. We are also selling homes faster (although we never quite had the bubble burst the rest of the country had to endure) and our banking centers are centralizing and catering to customers more than I can remember, ever. Wanna know who is bitching? The lawyers, the insurance companies, big pharma, the energy companies, and the lobbyists. Sorry if I don't cry a tear for any of them...
There are so many dildos out there, you''d think setting their phones to vibrate would come naturally. ---SUAF
