    Retailers usually have solid gains in August. It's called parents needing to by supplies for their children in preparation to going back to school.

    Those gains will thus evaporate this month until November when once again you'll be shocked to see retail stores reporting solid gains because of a little known holiday called Christmas.

    When we start approaching full employment again, ill be more optimistic for our economic future. But we won't do that until we get rid of the corruption in Washington.

    And the parents had the money huh?

    they spent it on items they needed.


    I know you want this country to fail because you place party over country but guess what?

    Your party in congress went home and got an EARFULL from Americans and now they are already saying they will pass what Obama offers.

    They know they are sunk if they keep obstructing everything

    Wow.. they checked with 26 whole stores! We're saved!

    So now TM thinks the hurricane was good for the economy? :rofl:

    Leave it to TM to ignore the overall gist of an article in favor of the title.

    And yet, one of TDM's lesser gods is perplexed by the lack of consumer spending over the last two years.

    Bernanke puzzled by weak consumer spending - BusinessWeek

    But, TDM's new motto is "Keep Hope Alive" at all costs.

    A single month increase in retail spending is good, for the retailers that saw increases. It sure as hell doesn't help the unemployed as retailers don't seem to be showing an increase in hiring employees.

    Yeah. They increased their spending in a month where they traditionally increase their spending. I don't see that as an economic boom TM. That's just the natural cycle.

    When are you going to realize that government isnt the solution to our economic problem. It is the cause of our economic problem.
