That Damn Economy

Growing at an estimated 4.8% last quarter. And historically, that number is revised upwards after all of the indicators are determined. Think that the Liberal media will stop with the "jobless recovery" crap and stop spouting on and on about how poorly everything is doing?

Recent polls show that a majority of Americans think that the overall economy is doing poorly EVEN THOUGH the same majority says that they are doing well personally. How screwed up is that? The media pounds it into everyone head that the economy sucks, but most Americans feel pretty comfortable where they're at (and consumer confidence is at its highest in years).

Great thing is that there seems to be no sign of the economy slowing down yet... it has also been a very long period of prosperity.

How about cutting your own grass! Those illegals will be out of work if everybody does it themselves.

and the time is near, witness the doubling of both gold and silver, as well as real estate in most areas. People instinctively head for, pay premiums for tangible assets when they sense the game is almost up. But, unless you plan to become a survivalist in a rural backwater armed to the teeth you have a good deal of pain to get through. Might not be this year, might not be next, but before Bush is out of office you will see what they have done to America.

Man, just give up on those guns. If it gets bad out there most of you don't have the guts to use them anyway. WOOO, I got an assault rifle in the closet. But you you never ever shot it. Barrel full of grease. Action all full of packing grease. Give it up. Go watch your DVD's on the couch like the rest of the people.

the top 1/3 is doing better than ever. own their own home plus two condo's as investments. planning an overseas trip this year and sending their kids to a 20,000.00/yr university. have achieved critical mass in their retirement nest egg.
the middle third, you, are working side jobs while your spose works full or part time so you can afford the mortgage on the house you can barely afford. the same house a person working the same job as you a generation ago bought on one salery and worked a side job only for toys. you are paying for child care occasionally as well. you are hopeing gas is lower than the 4.00/gal predicted this summer for the family road trip to the dells. because the C.P.S. have deteriorated so far you must pay tuition for your children to attend mediocre private schools and will be hard pressed to pay for even a lousy state college.
the retirement plans you have are in jepardy due to underfunding of pensions.
the bottom third are irrelevant to this discussion.
