Thanks for the post. This was also in that article:


For the year, sales fell 6.2 percent, the biggest decline on government records that go back to 1992.
The only other year that annual sales fell was in 2008, when they slipped by 0.5 percent.


OK, that is 12 times worse that our worst year on record.

Again more proof of how they are lying to us daily about what is happening, “The December drop in retail sales was a surprise given that the nation's big retailers had reported better-than-expected results last week.”

They are lying to the people to keep us in the dark and consuming. But people are waking up and realizing that their message does not match the reality.
