I thought the economy was terrible. Can't wait for the drivel about how bad it actually is. Something about the White House changing all the numbers to make it look good I suppose.

I wonder what the correlation is between people not paying their mortgages and purchasing goodies. Remember, you don't need to pay for your house anymore.

Well, wplettfan didn't have to wait very long. gofiger accused millions of people of cheating their banks to buy "goodies". That's insulting to the American people.

gofiger--I wonder what the correlation is between good news and neocons reporting it as bad news.

Regarding to wpgettfan, he is right. Now that the crazed spending is already done, then we will wait and see the truth. Each of the last four years we have heard the same canards. "It was a great spending Black Friday" and "the consumers are going crazy as they need to spend" and all of the rest. In truth, most people have already spent their meager resources and have very little left. And the better buying would have been to wait until close to Christmas and then buy the real deals. And once a dollar is spent, then what? Pull out the credit cards again? Further into debt? What about the millions out of work and out of all money? I say that this season will be frozen in ice after this initial start. Next year, America will be so broke that nothing will get us out. And it will not be the American train that will pull out all of the other nations that are gasping now.
