The National Bake sale that was held on May 5th seemed to have been a failure. This countries financial woes only seem worse as the cost of gas keeps going up. You don't even hear about the housing crisis anymore. It definitely has not gone away. The bake sale was supposed to help homeowners who are upside down in their mortgages. For every $1000 they are negative, they would need to sell 1500 cup cakes. Americans are big eaters and will binge on just about anything. My thought was that we could turn our economy around on our indulgences. It failed miserably. Nobody would get in their cars and drive.
