Is the economy really improving?

american sneaking into mexico

I heard American workers are beginning to sneak into Mexico to find jobs.

If you listen to the “Guvment” you may believe the economy is improving.  I heard one guvment official announce yesterday that grocery prices are on the decline. If that’s true the decline hasn’t reached Mississippi yet – but we are usually the last state to get the memo.

I am skeptical that things are getting better.  My new friend, Jim, agrees. He wrote me yesterday with several observations to support his position:
