Lines, lines, everywhere lines?

Good morning, Netizens…

In this morning’s Picture of the Day, thousands of people turned out Wednesday for a federal government job fair at the Atlanta Federal Center in downtown Atlanta.

If you look far enough back in American history, it hasn’t been all that long since Americans once stood in line for ration stamps to buy food and other necessities during World War II. I remember my grandparents telling me of the hardships that system caused the family farm, and somewhere in the nether lands of my basement, I have several stamp books which I am told are now collector items.

While I’ll admit it is a bit of a reach to tie the massive unemployment sweeping the country and a World War II rationing program that few, if any, of us ever were involved with, perhaps the sobering questions should be asked nonetheless.

Will they be bringing food rationing stamps back in the foreseeable future? Will we be waiting in line for food? Will Obama’s financial recovery plans actually work?
