  • I think it's realistic to be pessimistic now days but I'm optimistic that things will change but how much is what you have to be realistic about. Our country has been changed in ways that will be hard to "un"change anytime in the near future.

  • I noticed you left out "Optimistic"- LOL Since I handle our household finances, I think I'm forced to be "realistic". I just wish our lovely politicians would be realistic. They need to be put on a strict allowance! Let me divvy out who gets to spend what & where. I've been juggling bills for a long time. I think they should just have a bunch of us every day men & women who get by on our meager incomes be in charge- We know how to balance a budget!

  • Realistic - We have some rough roads up ahead as it will take a while for our wages to be adjusted with the impending mass inflation. Hold onto your hats! Literally.
