From yesterday's show...
But I believe, and I mean this from the bottom of my heart, that he doesn't mind the economy and market tanking right now. It only furthers his interests in assisting his panic-driven agenda in the short term. The worse it gets, the more prone average Americans are to get frustrated and scared and say, "do something!" And Obama goes out and makes a speech and says, "We're going to do something." "All right, we're doing something!" We're not doing anything to make it better. We're not doing one thing to improve the lives of average Americans and there are plenty of things that we could be doing.
I wrote the same thing, in similar language in a response to a local news story a couple of weeks ago. Funny thing... They took the story off the rotating banner and put it on the back page under 'more links' in about 30 minutes. I've had that happen on 3 stories in particular. On one, they rewrote the story to remove the parts about gun control I proved were wrong, deleted my comments, and then turned off the ability to comment.
I'm pretty proud of being up to speed on the issues sometimes (not all the time) but what disturbs me is that so many other people SHOULD BE!!!!
We all read this stuff and discuss it daily. Tell someone else!
The comment I made on the local news website in response to a story entitled "Bernanke: Economy In 'Severe Contraction'"
that likely prompted them to place the story on the back burner...
Because domestic consumer spending comprises 2/3rd of our GDP and two negative quarters of GDP is a sign of recession, wouldn't it be wisest to stop reporting incessantly negative news regarding the economy in order to bolster consumer spending? After all, consumer confidence is directly proportional to consumer spending habits and the reason consumer confidence sags is because of what is reported. If folks are told not to spend, they don't, and then when everyone chooses to spend less, people lose jobs and can afford less. This is a vicious cycle that HAS to be broken or we could get into a state that cannot be reversed. The negative tone of elected officials and the news media as a whole would almost imply that someone WANTS the economy to tank. Let's hear some positive spin every now and then.
Guys, it helps when you speak up. Do so often.
