Jay's partisan politics view of the economy versus my parent's friends who are all, and I repeat all, scaling back their lifestyle out of necessity. They are all bonafide, smack dab, middle class. Some do not turn their A/C on as much or as low. Other's cut back on lawn watering. No trips, no parties, no new cars, etc. Many of them are still massive Republican backers since Dallas is the #1 conservative city in the USA. I guess this is what always happens when you are out of touch.
The recession has just now started to bitch slap Texas. Real estate is dead, new car sales are dead, classic car sales are hurt. Texas was held up by NAFTA but even it cannot counter the tide alone.
