    Re: what...no recovery???

    The facts are you can not count any number that is released to be correct. It is another of a long line of reasons people do not have any faith in normal.

    And....another example of how private entities do not police themselves and why we need regulation.

    Not that government numbers are often times any better. And when they can no longer fudge the numbers they just decided to change how they count things.

    Drive through any neighborhood in any town USA. The article is no revelation. I have long, long since distrusted any information that comes from the government.

    The bad information was supplied by The National Association of Realtors -- not the government. Who'd have guessed that that group was incompetent?

    It's the largest trade lobby in Washington. Corpgov, it's all the same. How about the current administration asked the NAR to misreport their figures? I'd bet on that.

    It's a private group that represents real estate agents.

    Nice conspiracy theory, though. If they are answering to secret commands of Big Brother, why have they elected to strike out on their own now? Or is this another secret government plot designed make us think that it's NOT all a government plot?
