    3rd Quarter GDP Grows 2.5%!

    Dow Jones Average rises well above 12k again!

    Good stuff!

    Now if only those corporations would use some of their profits to hire Americans...

    Ah, who am I kidding?

    Why do Corporations hate America?

    It all the American workers' fault for expecting so much for their time and effort.

    Only in Obammy fluffer land is an anemic 2.5% growth rate good news.

    2 1/2 years and over $1 trillion of spending and this is all you have to show for it?

    Oh, and that "DOW back over 12,000" thing is in terms of some seriously inflated dollars.

    Once again...All sizzle, no steak.

    You people really just can't be happy for country over party, pretty much ever, can you?

    HEY! The US economy just started to gain a little steam!

    How about a little tiny bit of happiness?

    Maybe a golf clap?

    How dare the most productive workers in the world expect a living wage from the corporations they helped build!

    The gall of these people!

    We're stagnant, they bitch.

    We lose ground, they bitch.

    We gain ground, they bitch.

    Whiners, the lot of 'em.

    Sorry that the truth is such a bitch for y'all.

    Fact remains that over $1 trillion has been spent by congress and the White House, somewhere in the neighborhood of $1 trillion has been "quantitatively eased" into the economy out of thin air. Gasoline is far closer to $4/gal than $3, most commodities are at all time (inflated) highs, housing starts are anemic, getting business and other loans are next to pulling hen's teeth, yet a paltry 2.5% growth rate (which was called "the worst economy since the Great Depression when Bubba Clintoon was running for office, BTW) is something to start up the champagne showers over?


    How much you wanna bet that these numbers don't get "unexpectedly" adjusted downwards in the next few weeks?
