Is the joke on us?

With the passing of all the new bills and bailouts and making of new money and other countries worrying about the USA, is the joke actually on us, the American People? Have we been duped into believing, like Chicken Little, that the sky will fall only to find out it won't?

  • We believe that it will, indeed, "fall" at some point.

    Now is as good a time as any.

  • A recession lasts around 15-21 months on average, and we are right around that point now. The market rallies for a week and now climbs over 8000 and sustains it's first month,March, in the positive. So what comes next, jobs, typically jobs will come back in the postitives after the market remains in the positive for 6 consecutive months. So many people believed the great deceiver, and everything that was happening was all fairly normal in the business world and he knew it woud turn around and when. Which is why he worked so fast in the first 100 days to get his programs out there, he knew by then, the natural cycle would be turning around and the fear he could play on would subside.
    Another reason he played so hard on the young voters who had never experienced a recession and the uneducated who had no idea what was going on in business, they listened and chose grape koolaide.

  • lmao. no, the sky is really falling.

    It's just going to take 5 to 10 years to see how far this spending spree brings it down.
