People blame gas prices for part of the "declining" economy. There is so much oil under Alaska we wont have to depent on those OPEC clowns. The U.S. is still far beyond any other country. We decided to use their oil instead of ours, and when they are out, start to use our own. When the entire world is depending on oil from OPEC, and we have our own oil, and our economy is going to boom way beyond any other economy.

There is no recession right around the corner. The US GDP for the third quarter of 04 increased 4 percent, and rose 3.8% in the 4th. Those are not signs of a recession. (By the way, GDP is Gross Domestic Product, or, a measuring stick of how the economy is doing).

New comers are what you have to worry about, not a declining economy.

I knew my choice of ECON as a major would pay of eventually, who knew it would be an internet lawnsite.

You're the idiot. You're nothing more than a two bit, 18 year old, know nothing punk. Go back to school and learn decent spelling and grammar before you start lecturing about economics. You're still wet from birth...and don't know sh/t about economics.

Come back when you grow up sh/t head.

The administration is killing us?
I doubt it.
If you all want to run around thinking the sky is falling go right ahead.
In the mean time we will continue to grow by giving customers what they want, Quality lawn care at a reasonable price.
$130/ acre is hardly reasonable, that's why a lot of you are losing business, people are NOT going to pay the lawn guy $100-$130/ hr. for cutting their grass.

How many people on this site would pay that kind of rate for ANYTHING in the service industry................

It will be a VERY short list I'm sure..................

Yup your right....Its lawn boys like you that give us all a bad rep. The ones who didnt/couldnt go to college, so they resort to mowing lawns, not running a business. YOur nothing but another old guy who gets all pissy when someone says something he doesnt like to hear, then uses the age thing as his only weapon.

Props to you DennisF, you are the smart one, and yes, because your older, know everything. Come back when you get any education.

Thank you,
Its the uneducated people who see something in the media and dont have what it takes to be a leader, so they point fingers, just like the media. They wouldnt know democrat over republican, just the fact that Bush is rep. so that means they are opposite of him, because the media says how terrible he is. These people have been followers their entire lives, and will continue to be followers until they die.

It is these people that make the threads "what is a scrub", or "lost another acct. to a lowballer", or "gas is killing me", or "Getting out of the business" Instead of getting over it and being innovative in their ways, they go to a internet site to whine and ***** to all of the people that are just like them.

DennisF, you are nothing, and not worth another typed word.

I have Bachelors in Computer Science from the University of Michigan (1993). But I got most of my education from the school of hard knocks and 32 years of building cars and trucks for General Motors. I cut grass part time in Michigan for 28 years before retiring and moving to the Sunshine State. Now I get to cut grass all the time.

Someday when you grow up and become a man, you'll understand something about economics and hard work. Hell... you might even get lucky and have the opportunity to get laid off or fired from a job and have to worry about how you'll feed your family. That's when economics begins sink in and you start thinking with a clear head. But at 18 years old and with a know it all attitude it's going to take a big chunk of your adult life just to find out how little you know.

You got a tax cut didn't you?
I did. So did millions of others........

The montra of how the Republicans are not for the middle class working folk is just plain tired and old. It no longer holds any water.


And by the way, I would NOT pay a plumber $130/ hr.
