The Bloomberg Consumer Comfort index inches up to -31.8 from -32.1, finishing 2012 at just about at the year's high. The index has put in what technicians might call a triple top, with three runs - one in early spring, one in the summer, and this one - into the low -30 area. With a bigger share of nearly all paychecks headed to D.C., we'll see if this resistance level can be broken in 2013.

  • Love that last sentence. The glass may be half-full, but "nearly all" pockets are getting picked.

  • Yes, Bruce.

     

    By all means, let's have a Country and/or a Government that runs on "nothing". People like you who whine about your taxes are amazing; you want your police, fire departments, good roads, good schools.......and you expect them to somehow be 'free'.

     

    Freedom ain't free, so stop whining and pay your taxes.

  • My business generates substantial "revenue" for local, state and federal government on a daily basis, dectra. It does so in a city weighed down by the largest and worst public school system in the state, a system so bad that people of quite modest means line up to pay tuition at neighborhood-based parochial schools and private high schools.

     

    If you believe that wage slavery to unaccountable government is the cost of freedom, that's your yoke not mine.
