PHEW! That's excellent news!
For the past year and 3 months I've totally thought we were still in a recession. You know.. like since we haven't had a net gain in jobs outside
of Census hiring since .. er.. early 2007..
Or you know, the continuing decline in Actual Wage, or the stagnation in Wage Increase, or god, don't even get me started on the continuous decline
of the housing market..
Or the fact that we are still -30% on most retirement funds from 2006
Or the fact that manufacturing has been decimated outside road construction equipment..
Sovereign Debt Crisis, Double Dip Recession, Stagflation, Pending Deflationary Spirals, Reminiscent of the Great Depression .. what the hell, why am I
still hearing this all over the place..
All I know.. is it's a good thing we can put that all behind us.. the Recession is so last year now.
(explicit word) the Fed, the Government, the NBER, MSM, and everyone else who's lied to us.

During the crisis and just before the major "crisis"
We believed them then (some of us) and got hosed. WHY believe them now???
Why are people listening to the same news sources that told them to buy into Bear Stearns 12 hrs before it collapsed?
