Economy Getting Better?

This is an off night and I do apologize, most of my thoughts today have revolved around the Bush Administration (maybe Bush himself) authorizing the use of torture on detainees, and why this coward has not been drug before an impeachment hearing or arrested like a common criminal. Most importantly how long it will take before they are justifying the enhanced interrogation techniques on American citizens; if they are not already. But that's tomorrows post.

Today just look at this article and tell me we can trust anything coming from this government.

Bush Administration Hides More Data, Shuts Down Website Tracking U.S. Economic Indicators

How can society plan for a future if we can not rely on the basic data coming from the trusted reporting agencies in our government. Those agencies exist so citizens can plan their lives not for cheap political gains or to protect the corporate profits from informed investors.

I once heard a great quote which fits this well, "statistics don't lie but liars use statistics". It means stats can show whatever someone wants them to.

Dragon, I voted for the Criminal twice and I am ashamed. I will never vote again just to vote for the lesser of two evils.

We are assuming here that PTB want american Citizens to know anything about the economy and how bad it really Is. We are on the brink of the great depression 2, actually The greater depression. We are sinking fast and PTB don't want us to know OR communicate about it.

Talk while you can here because the internet will restricted soon.

Well ya know, it takes tons of money to keep a website going so Chimpy needed to cut back somewhere. Remember the days of the $25,000 for the toilet seat? (Shouldda saved that money and gave Chimpy a Swirly instead!) I'm so sick of him and his goons destroying America as we know it. I think we'll go through a recession, get a new President, find his (hopefully not a "her") plan doesn't work either and then it'll all be know this we've been heading in the wrong direction and hopefully, some MAJOR changes will be made!

Under the new Patriot Act, Chimpy should be prosecuted!
