A Baby Boomer trying to survive the Great Recession.
Introduction
Bud Meyers is a "Baby Boomer" and the son of parents who spent their lives in the U.S. military.

Bud was born in California and has lived in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New York, Germany, Hawaii, and most recently Las Vegas Nevada - where he has lived and worked since 1989 before being laid off during The Great Recession in October 2008.

Bud likes reading, blogging, writing poems, playing his guitar, computer graphics and designing web sites. Photography and videography are also hobbies of his. He also watches too much TV.

"Say Goodbye To Poland" is his first novel and "Why I Hate Republicans and the Fox News Channel" is his latest.

Update February 16, 2014: Here's an awesome video of Nick Hanauer on MSNBC discussing inequality with Chris Hayes on Feb. 13, 2014 --- Short excerpt:

"Ultimately, this is not about money—it's about status, privileges and power. For a subset of these people, the most important thing in the world is status, privilege and power. They have sacrificed everything for it. This is my world—I know a lot of these folks—and a lot of these folks are border-line sociopathic people, and they don't care about other people."

The Fed and others report that the declining labor force participation rate is forecast to be much lower than what it currently is --- and that it's also falling faster than earlier predicted. Expect more long-term unemployment --- those, who after 1 year, will no longer be counted by the government in the unemployment rate --- and why the unemployment rate has been falling.)
