    BTW, 250 g's for couples; 200 g's for individuals. Get your facts straight.

    So, you admit that the polls are bull**** and not a true reflection of the pulse of the country?

    They are what they are, as limited as it is, but a single snapshot of a majority on an issue. This can change rapidly, or slowly. Another time might get another result. And polls tell us nothing about right wrong, true ot false.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Perhaps this will help you:

    Recession - "A significant decline in activity across the economy, lasting longer than a few months. It is visible in industrial production, employment, real income and wholesale-retail trade. The technical indicator of a recession is two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth as measured by a country's gross domestic product (GDP); although the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) does not necessarily need to see this occur to call a recession. "
