Why such depressing polls?

Why have all the CM polls been about cut backs related to the economy? It's depressing enough as it is.

  • I find it interesting... a reflection of what real families are experiencing, and not just what the news is reporting.

  • So many doctors are prescribing depression medicine for adults. Just as prescribing ADD medicines for children that don't behave just as parents and teachers would like for them too. Instead of using a little discipline or parenting skills, which take time and patience, its easier to give them a pill and expect a miracle..

    Sometimes a med is the only way for a child to recognize discipline and allow them the opportunity to learn how to behave in a world they are not physiologically prepared for. Though it's just great you and your kids are healthy and you have perfect parenting skills to boot. Just curious what does your answer have to do with the question?


    OP I think that many people are facing lean times and that is always made tougher by the holiday season. Maybe they just want to know that they aren't alone in what they are facing.
