WASHINGTON (AP) --
Retail sales unexpectedly fell in December, leaving 2009 with the biggest yearly drop on record and highlighting the formidable hurdles facing the economy as it struggles to recover from the deepest recession in seven decades.
In another disappointing economic report, the number of newly laid-off workers requesting unemployment benefits rose more than expected last week as jobs remain scarce.


Unexpectedly?

If these bozos can't add 1+1 to get to 2, why is anyone listening to them?

You mean they decided to come out with a little half-truth?? Giving us the news little by little so we dont go into shock?


On the other hand, the drums keep beating that AlQaaida is gonna git us.

Oh my word, i cant stand it- I hate waiting to die, dont you???

its amazing people still listen to their government and media as if they tell the truth. One day the sun is shining, the next the sky is falling and very few stop to wonder what changed from day to day. They simply say the first day "Oh boy the sun is shining!", the next: "Oh no the sky is falling!" and ad infinitum. There like gold fish only with a shorter memory.

the worst of it is were crazy for occasionally speaking the truth before anyone else knows whats going on. How many of you predicted the rosy numbers they reported in november and december were a lie? Lots of you thats how many. lol

And yet to the mainstream media and the sheep who follow their drivel you intelligent thoughtful people are considered loons.

The world makes me sick some days and today is one of em.

Cheers
