    Obviously not, dumbass. If we had, we would not be so far in debt. I think it's time for you to pull your head out of your ass now.

    The Recovery So Far - WSJ.com

    Growth is about half as strong as it was after the last deep downturn.


    One has to wonder why growth is anemic as compared to previous deep downturns.

    Could it be government has hampered what would have been a more robust economic recovery?

    You guys could find something wrong with a rainbow....I just don't get it. Are you truly that depressed and negative all the time, or are you so partisan, that you absolutley MUST find SOMETHING to bitch about the current administration?

    So tell me why is this recovery only half a strong as others?

    And I get sick of the Pollyanna just ignore history hacks who never question the fucking government.

    And I wasn't bitching, I was merely offering a counterpoint and asking a question. But I don't expect thin skinned hack sheep like you to actually see that.

    I don't give a rat's ass how this recovery compares to others. What I see, is a small uptick in job growth, combined with 3.2% growth. Take it at face value and move on.

    Here we go again, the GOVERNMENT proclaims that the economy has improved.

    The same way they have proclaimed for the last few months, like clockwork.

    So if we never compare the present to the past and take everything at face value how then do we learn to recognize what works and what doesn't?

    But you don't care about that as long as big daddy government is giving you a tit to suck do you?

    Never mind. I simply enjoy a bit of good news every now again. If you want to disect it and find how we are not doing as well as we "could" or "should" be, that is obviously your perogative. See you all in November. By then, your hair splitting will be so miniscule that you will end up looking like fools.
