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.

    Bruce, if you want to see a 'boogie man' behind every move you make, that's your cross to bear, not mine.
