    Yeah, yeah, yeah....You can stop with that annoying crap now...I saw it the first five times you posted it, and it wasn't impressive then either.

    If you would prefer not to base your opinions on statistics and known facts, what would you suggest we base arguments upon? Gut feelings and hunches? If you wish to ignore and dismiss statistics in general as lies, then perhaps economics isn't the right subject to discuss.

    No it is an innovative product that CREATED demand rather than a product built to fulfill demand. Growing an economy is more than simple slogans like tax cuts or increase demand.

    Statistics are primarily based on gut feelings and hunches, just so you know.

    No, statistics (reliable ones at least) are made up of data streams that have been proven to be viable and time tested, not "gut feelings and hunches."

    By Lucia Mutikani
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Employers hired far fewer workers in March than in previous months, keeping the door open for the Federal Reserve to provide more monetary support for a still sluggish economy.
    I heard that Darth Vader Romney, the baby eater, (whoops, I mean Mitt Romney)...... [continue screed] blah blah blah blah blah blah [/screed]

    LOL. Of course, Romney is no more than a Star Wars Villain who eats babies than Obama is Saddam Hussein, although I did hear that Obama and George Bush participate together in secret Satanic rituals. LOL.

    Jeez.
