Buzzword for the economic collapse of post 9/11 America. Actually started in '01 but peaked around '06-'08 all the while while we were being told that we weren't even IN a recession (until late Nov. '08 when Bush was ousted, hmmm). Symptoms of GR include, but are not limited to, huge pay cuts, massive job losses, homelessness, foreclosures, and a rise in the crime rate.
Damn, remember how things were before the Great Recession when all we had to worry about was if Clinton was getting head in the Oval Office? Now we have to worry about the whole fucking world hating us & wanting us dead.
