    Philly Fed Index is fraught with inaccurate signals...

    So, let's raise some more taxes and let's raise the minimum wage and heck, no one has to work anyway, we can all stay home and find our passion. And get free health insurance and free food and unemployment checks and what else is free? Is a house free, send me one and how about a car, I'll take two. How about a small plane, that would be nice and a boat, yeah, that's all I need... Who's paying? Nancy Pelosi is paying. This is her idea isn't it? She's filthy rich isn't she? Why shouldn't she pay? I think she should stay home and find her passions in her own way. That's the ticket. As a matter of fact, how about they all stay home.

     

    We don't need any of them, all they do is spend money we don't have. And if they all stayed home we could send in our votes over the web on all issues. Just sign up, put in your SS# (is that still for a number or a hashtag?), and fill in the name of your provider and all your personal info, including your banking information and your latest medical records, and we can vote on everything. See, we don't need them anymore. It would be so much cheaper if we just did away with them altogether. Then we could grow our way out of this funk, 4% maybe 5 or 6 even. The sky is the limit. Then we could all vote ourselves a free Tesla. As a way to clean up the environment, of course. Pay for itself in no time. What a way to go.

    Spot on. Are you cynical, or just bitter? I'm beginning to lean toward the latter.

    This can't last forever, Nancy Pelosi is 73 and Harry Reid is 74.

    At the time, I thought it was just funny, lol. But from hindsight, maybe, a little over the top. Sorry bout that but I really would love the Tesla, in white, please.

    Economy isn't necessarily great but the worst winter of all time in the midwest has to be having some impact.

    The number will be revised upward by the same people who manipulate the monthly unemployment numbers.
