All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!

I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc., I called the Suicide Hotline. I got a call center in Pakistan , and when I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited, and asked if I could drive a truck...

    Nice ones. Haven't seen those before...makes me wonder what kind of "bad economy" jokes were going around during the Great Depression:

    There's so many brokers jumping out of windows, they renamed Wall Street "Fall Street".

    They've cut back on the soup line so much that you get more sustenance from drinking out of a mud puddle.

    Stock prices have fallen so far that brokers have taken to carrying shovels to work with them.

    Sorry, that's all I've got. There's a reason I have a day job....

    I wish I could get one of those. At least we are staying above water, provided the waves stay small.

    There is a good chance that we may be in for an oil boom bigger than the one in ND. We just need an oil friendly guy in the white house to free up the federal lands.

    It's been interesting around here, too, oil-wise. Two different Texas oil companies have drilled test wells on former ranchland out east of town previously slated for housing development, and have said they won't be drilling extraction wells because there wasn't enough of it and it was too immature (from the Niobrara).

    A third company is still working on plans to drill a test well in another part of the county, but have higher hopes since they are going into the Pennsylvanian.

    Meanwhile, the 18,000 acres of former ranchland is now up for grabs for development again. Only question now is, if they go ahead and build, where's all the extra water going to come from? We're already under watering restrictions and they want to add another 84,000 houses?
