Airlines will resume hiring on Dec 20, 2012... unfortunately the end of the world will be the very next day.
The end was almost today.
Here is the truth... We elected a president who is an avowed Marxist. This man is good at giving a speech, but seems to have few talents other than keeping the chair he is currently occupying from flying away. This bonehead and his buds in congress (slobbering Barney Frank, Pelosi, and other assorted retardgencia) keep making dumber and dumber moves which make the U.S. economy suck progressively greater amounts of wind.
If this blockhead figures out that what he is doing is having the opposite of the desired economic effects, and ceases doing these things, our economy could recover quickly.
If said blockhead continues down the same road which Carter was so familiar with (which is far more likely,) then things will clearly deteriorate. It could be a rough couple of years for us all.
Fact is we are in a Capitalistic country (for now,) and these sillly "tax the rich and punish coroprations" populist policies simply have no place here-we have seen similar crap fail miserably time and time again. Airlines have razor-thin profit margins, even in the best of times. The more socio-economic experimentation these clowns engage in, the worse off all the airlines (and the entire economy) will be.
I tend to think that the Dems wil get their teeth kicked around Nov 2010. By then, it will be clear that all of "Bush's failed economic policies" are clearly no longer responsible for the present mayhem. If this scenario happens, the economy and airlines will be riding high again in a couple of years, and the current nightmare will begin to fade.
-"Change we can believe in" (sounds catchy)
-"Yes we can" (bankrupt the country)
OK, for the record. I didn't vote for the guy, but isn't he just letting the Bush tax cuts expire for the richer Americans. We were doing ok in the 90s with the older tax code. That said, I think he is making a huge mistake with this level of spennding.
