Being 30 and Living With Your Parents Isn’t Lame — It’s Awesome This is a big fucking joke.Every year since 2001 I have heard about how bad the economy is, except now I'm supposed to like it. Bullshit. The economy was good from 2005 to 2007, after that everything went to shit. It's only gotten worse. In 2013 watch for a pent-up hiring splurge, watch people start going back to work, and watch Time magazine post cover stories on the return of the "homeless". English majors will be the first ones up against the wall come my revolution.
