I predict that two years from now, we will NOT be on a downward spiral and no "flush" will have occurred.
 
Is that a good test of our respective hypotheses?
 
Heck, I predict that two years from now we will be more or less back to normal.

BTW what happened to Pelosi's promise of a on web review of the bill for 72hours prior to the vote? What does she fear?


I'm sorry, are you actually looking at any of the numbers currently being recorded in relation to our economy?

I could care less what Pelosi does or says about the health care bill -- there's a clear consensus on both sides of what's going to happen with it, and people have both had more than enough time to talk about it and to write their senators demanding answers.

I've been saying all along that we ARE at normalcy when you look at the logarithmic charts depicting the actions of the markets and economic outlook from the early 1900's through today. The only people who think that we're seriously bad off right now are the same ones who think that 'Merica can do no wrong and that tariffs on foreign goods are a good idea. It isn't the gov't that got us here people, it's you, me, and everyone else. The gov't didn't help, but it wasn't any one particular president's fault. Rather the actions of both Reagan and Clinton that allowed common people to put our economic livelihood at risk.

/\ That combined with the Fed Reserve's unwillingness to raise interest rates to make credit less available.


....Just one of many factors, but still. Interest rates were ridiculously low after '01 and for too long.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

I love watching you guys bash your heads against each other.

The economy works in cycles, in much the same way as seasons, women, and tides.
