They're at it again busy fudging the numbers. (Mmm fudge). But all seriousness aside it sure looks like the bean counters are busy trying their best to put a happy face on the economy. Couldn't have anything to do with the fact that people are near to starvation in europe where unemployment is at 25% with youth unemployment at over 50%? And neatly hidden has been the austerity cuts or at least some actual figures or details. Lame stream media wouldn't want to panic the job creators while their busy selling worthless paper to each other.
Headline reads 'U.S. grows at faster pace', I'll believe that when pigs fly or maybe they're talking about homeless camps. Just the day before yesterday it was reported that durable goods sales were in negative territory and from an anecdotal perspective you could roll a bowling ball down the aisle of a grocery store and be lucky to hit anyone. Mcdonalds is now offering home delivery. Wonder if that has anything to do with the cuts to 'meals on wheels'. Grandma might still have enough pocket change for a happy meal that is if they didn't raise her Medicare costs.
"Jobless claims fall". That's because those that ran out of unemployment are no longer counted and there are a lot of us out here. And those that were fortunate to get jobs took massive pay cuts just to try and have an income. Cheery news no? So while the real money (make that debt) (or is it all fake?) is busy being passed around like a dead corpse the rest of us suffer. Never seen so much shuffling of the deck chairs on the Titanic in all my life. And while the media brings up WMDs for the umpteenth time maybe that would be a kinder death. It'd sure beat being starved to death.
