So, is it sinking in yet with anyone that there is no real difference between the D's & the R's and their current makeup of "leadership" ?? :doh:

By my thumb nail accounting, that's about $200 billion in long term notes and a roughly equal about in short term notes. Start brushing up on the phrase "hyperinflation" it's coming...


yes and all thanx to obama and the democrat congress. Im sure hyperinflation will be blamed on George bush.

It's an average taken from things like corporate output, personal consumption and income, foreign indexes and a bunch of other stuff. The link above has them all listed if you are interested in wading through a bunch of financial gobbledy-goop.

A more "friendly" explanation of the different indices and how they are put together to get the GDP is here: http://www.bea.gov/scb/pdf/2009/04%20Ap ... dpecon.pdf (linked from http://www.bea.gov/scb/index.htm if you are interested in this kind of stuff)


Thanks, figured there was more to it than what I was thinking.

I hope so, I've long thought every politician was a dirtbag. Maybe the rest of the world will soon catch on like the flu huh?

I have a question knowing we are in a depression and the government knowing that how much of the stimulus was truly necessary (what%) and how much was pork (what%). Regardless what Bush left (1 trillion Debt) how can anybody justify signing and not reading (a broken promise by BO himself) a bill that 70% pork didn't go to to pay the prior debt. This was not in any way Bush's fault BO forced it thru and his hand alone doubled our debt and BO is still forcing bills thru full of pork and knowing it by his own admission. So as the question was presented before WHY DOESN'T BO MAN UP and admit he made many mistakes(out right lies) and apologize and start correcting the debt he caused and work on paying it off before he continues on his PERSONAL AGENDA. Both parties need to serve the people rather than their relection.

Its still a recession...

Definition

There is no widely-agreed-upon definition for a depression, though some have been proposed. In the United States the National Bureau of Economic Research determines contractions and expansions in the business cycle, but does not declare depressions.[1] Generally, periods labeled depressions are marked by a substantial and sustained shortfall of the ability to purchase goods relative to the amount that could be produced using current resources and technology (potential output).[2] The economic theory most concerned with periods of inflation, deflation and depressions is known as the Kondratieff wave. Another proposed definition of depression includes two general rules: 1) a decline in real GDP exceeding 10%, and 2) a recession lasting 3 or more years.[3][4].

Does that three years count the 18 months they denied we were in a recession and then went back and redefined their numbers?

The idiots in the 61% approval zone of Obama are the same idiots who say they are dissatisfied with the nation (64%).

Obviously they are fully inebriated by the spiked pablum the press has served them for the last decade or two.

there is a whole generation of mtv type kids who have grown up watching mtv and liberal media who slam repubs all day long that think being a republican is a joke or something bad. The media has killed the republican image.

They have been doing it since the hippies came of age in government and industry...that is, when they became yuppies of the early eighties. Most boomers put a target on Reagan's back while invoking Nixon's debacle and haven't stopped their immoral demonization of their parents values (as represented in the republicans). It's the worst bunch of spoiled brats ever. I truly can't wait for the boomers to die off (and I'm one of them!).

There are no more democrats, only leftists. A democrat in today's political arena would be refreshing. Moynihan was the last democrat.

Beats the slightly colored hot water from Dunkin Donuts. Although Starbucks' in-store music isn't much better than hippie fare - no argument there.

I watched the whole episode. What a laugh...until you realize they are in charge now! They are the establishment they said they'd never become...and they are worse control freaks and resource wasters than their parents ever dreamed of being!
