    This is bull****. I don't give a **** about 2-3 months of "positive" numbers when the last 5 years has been downhill. These news articles are purley media propoganda.

    The Libbos are ready to grab on to any sliver of good news. You can't blame them. They got their big chance and they cocked it up. My heart goes out to them, actually.

    It means that one typically resorts to personal insults if they have no other valuable contribution to make in an open discussion...as you did.

    You, sir, are a compassionate conservative.

    Your attempt at wit falls far short. Go back and see what the exchange was

    you attempted the insult with this remark

    Wonder if Greece (etal) feel the same?
    I replied with this right on the money question


    Do you live in Greece? Perhaps that is why your perspective is so skewed?
    and then you responded with the silly #5 bit about an insult.

    It seems that you attempted to be both clever and witty and fell short of both by at least half. And then when your lack of clarity was questioned, you resort to even more of that pattern. And to think you have both the gall and temerity to actually complain about making a contribution to the discussion!

    Come back in a thousand posts or so when you have more experience and learn how this is done.

    How should I not take this as blatent condescension? Is it ME being 'clever' or 'witty'? If so, I bow to your eminence and dominance…Oh Lord of the forum…I’m sure the income from posting 11k times will carry your far in life. Good luck with that.

    Further, yes you did insult...insinuating that my perspective was skewed.

    My question regarding the thoughts of Greece was related to your comment about this country's debt level, economic stagnation, un/underemployment, decline of the middle class, etal. My point was serious as Greece's debt has essentially left them at the whim of the rest of the 'Eurozone powers'. They too have the same issues that we do ergo my question.

    My bad, GDP did meet economists' expectations. It exceeded mine.

    Overall recent reports are good news because it was looking more and more like we might be sliding back into recession.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Recent reports of 3 months of slightly positive data are all you expect after 5 years of econmic decline? Are you really that in love with Obama? I would like to do a study of your mental and social habits compared to that of a woman that is abused in a relationship that continues to go back to the same undesirable situation.

    We never slid out of a recession, it was the media and Obama filling your easily influenced mind with propoganda.

    If you wanted to make a point about Greece, then make it instead of simply tossing it out as a shorthand right wing meme and all here are suppose to fill in the blanks because we have heard the same rant on Bill O'Reilly or Rush. If you want to make a point about Greece and its debt problems and relate it to the USA and its situation, statistics, facts and data would greatly go a very long way in attempting to make that point. The you may have some ground upon which to state that "they to have the same issues that we do". But you never developed that or provided any reality for your shorthand response.

    But its a free country and you can try to 'debate' any way you want to. Just do not be so sensitive when the flaws are pointed out to you.
