Duh! - So after nobody buys into the line that gets reported to keep the masses in the realm of "all is well" that we buy our way out of this huge mess - as in years past! - they finally say what many already knew and reported. Q2 GDP was actually 1.1% -- The status quo is changing folks -- don't be fooled --

I wonder how the markets would have reacted if the first estimate had come in sub 1% rather than just missing estimates at 2.4%?
Sorry to say, but a sub 1% growth, given the amount of "stimulus" money thrown at the problem, is unbelievably bad. There should be some admittance that mistakes have been made, that money has been misdirected. Frankly, radical steps need to be taken or the US is going to implode.
