Figgers. ABC News reported good economic news this morning - unemployment claims down, job gains & stock market up.
It’s only going to get worse.
Recovery Summer 4.0!!! Happy days are here again!
It’s a good thing we have Obama in charge! This situation would be a thousand times worse with anyone else running the show! [/breathless Liberal]
Get ready here it comes.
It’s called propaganda. I’ve noticed that a few more sources are beginning to report the BLS BS with a snigger and a wink.
Even some of those that acknowledge the “massaged” numbers don’t want the BLS to stop. They are afraid of what widespread reporting of the real numbers would do to the fake recovery.
That’s weird. Because FOX News Radio’s Lisa Brady always tells me (during breaks from Rush & Hannity) that the economy is humming right along - never uttering any bad news.
Should be good for +200 on the DOW.
Well, looks like the “recovery” is proceeding well.
A few more tidbits of “good” news on this order, and this country will be in reality even worse off than in 1938, the deepest part of the Great Depression.
Can’t wait for the “Pearl Harbor” moment, when everybody unites on going to war with SOMEONE, just to get our factories up and running again, and our own fuel sources churning out at rates that make us totally energy independent.
Fortress America. This is the stuff of video games.
NoThing to see here just move on.
The msm will instruct/ advise you and tell you whats what.
“A few more tidbits of good news on this order, and this country will be in reality even worse off than in 1938, the deepest part of the Great Depression.”
Uh, please tell us one reason to believe we are not ALREADY worse off in reality than in 1938.
