    I think this is the dumbest Idea I have heard in a long, long time. I like Penny's the way it is. What do you think?

    Dear, the main issue of our time is Keynes versus Friedman!!! We don't want to make this trivial pursuit!! Do you have anything to say?

    seems like an innovative idea. Controlling the flow of merchandise seems potentially problematic. Some means of clearly distinguishing "shelf" items from "bought & paid for items" carried to & from other shops, seems necessary.

    But then you didn't realize that 0 -.25% Fed Funds and 1% discount rate is not normal. Shall we continue your lesson?


    Please tell is what the main economic issue of our time really is????
    Why be so afraid to try?

    Which has nothing to do with your original statement. Maybe you should interrupt this lesson to figure out how to form a coherent argument?


    People are having a conversation about JC Penny. If you feel the need to pick one topic which is "the main issue of our time", and only ever talk about that, why don't you fuck off and have a conversation with yourself?

    poor dear you're really frustrated about not knowing what normal interest rates are. Why let it get to you? It could have happened to anyone.

    You're no doubt the dumbest human being I've ever had the displeasure of talking to, so I'd like to see how you react to this.
