    I mean, how do these idiots call themselves experts, when they are always surprised by the results?

    Expert to another expert: "Look Larry, we were wrong again. What a surprise!"

    What is interesting is the experts that I saw on the Lehrer news hour in January through about March almost all predicted rising unemployment till close to the end of the year, possibly into next. I suspect this is cherry picking experts to make the story.

    The reason the rise was unexpected was because it's been falling for four straight weeks. I don't know why people are guffawing and backslapping like it was so stupid to predict it would fall again.

    Someone, quick, explain to me why we have minimum wage laws when we are trying to end unemployment.

You should also remember that talk of a looming recession goes back to late 2007 or even earlier. The writing was on the wall when President Obama was still Senator Obama. It took years to sink our economy and it is unreasonable to expect the President to fix it in a matter of months. So keep telling your silly jokes it only makes your side of the room look like they are as removed from reality as ever.
    Who's joking? This is like confusing a funeral procession with a circus parade.

    U.S. consumer confidence rose in June to the highest since February 2008, as expectations grew that the worst economic recession since the Great Depression may be ending, a survey showed on Friday.

    You got it! All the legislation being introduced by the Dems right now has no other purpose but to win votes. None of it will have any positive effect on the country. They know it and they don't care, as long as they add to their voting base.

    The "Bush recession" started before GWB was elected -- and yet, it was pinned on him.

    Good for the goose, but not good for The Obama?

    As if I need to ask.
    No need to assume anything. Your post and your attitude speak volumes to your intent.
