Not snotty or petty, statistics are by definition made up numbers.

Your the one being petty. And I was not comparing the messiah's numbers to GW, I am saying RIGHT NOW, so quit trying to spin it as anything else. Your trying to say the economy is better that it was, and I am saying that it does not matter because it still stinks.
Just because you say it stinks less now than it did before, does not mean that it does not still stink.

No, but it is solid proof that the economy has vastly improved....remaining uninformed on our economy, because you hate this President, sure means something.....

Since both of you are in South Florida, how about you meet up for a drinking contest to settle this?

I dont hate the president, I hate the economy and obammacare.
During WWII the unemployment rate was zero, so by your logic the economy is in terrible shape compared to that. And that my friend is why statistics are made up numbers.

Your claim of how rosy the economy is flawed and its truth is tied to what flavor kool aid you like. Insisting things are great simply because you refuse to admit that our president is not the chosen one is myopic. He's just a man, and a flawed one at that. And 7% of Americans cant find work, so go tell them how great everything is and how wonderful the president is.

Maybe when J_M_W gets her new car, she could be the judge/referee and also show off the car by driving the contestants home.

Naw. Not that much of a gap. I'm just more of an online shopper. Why go out and haul it back when it can just come to me in the first place?

I dont shop online, I hate the thought of my info out in cyberspace. I suppose if I got a card that had a limit that I could top off again (do they make pre-paid refillable debit cards?), which would limit my loss, I might be more inclined.
I get my daughter to buy me stuff on ebay with her account (pay-pal?) and I give her the money with a finders fee included.

Yeah, I'm getting a decent amount. No idea what to get next yet. I have to do a bunch of searching and research.

Do you strictly use cash in your everyday life, grandpa? Cause if you don't, your info is "out in cyberspace" anyway.

I wouldn't call 51% a "wide margin."

Saying "Proof the economy is Vastly improved", sure sounds like you painting a rosy picture to me. But I guess you hate to be tripped up by your own words...
Good luck to you too!
