What argument? The best you've got is name calling, naysaying and foul language. I have yet to see anything come close to resembling a reasoned argument from you and I doubt we ever will since you've shown yourself entirely incapable of it.
Lets see you back something up lil stinker -- with credible, verifiable facts and sources. Lets see something besides fright wing gossip, excuses, rumor, lies, innuendo, tall tales, shuck and jive, baseless nonsense, non-facts, tap dancing.

I love doing this to you .... and I'm waiting.

Forgive me if I'm skeptical of their rosy little crystal ball prognosticating. These people are wrong just as often as they're right and, as I observed several times already, we have yet to see the full effect of Obamacare on the economy. Don't you think that employers cutting hours for their workers to avoid having to provide them insurance just MIGHT have a negative effect on the economy? Don't you think forcing people who are already stretched thin on their budgets to shell out hundreds a month for health insurance MIGHT have a negative effect on the economy (this with their hours cut and bringing home less pay). And that's but a few facets of the problem to consider.
Tell you what, Blue...if the economy is doing great a year from now, you can tell me, "I told you so". If it's not, you can take it to the bank I'll be saying it to you. Over and over.

If you knew how to read and comprehend or had an ounce of critical thinking skills you might have a basis for claiming the sources -- either Wikepedia or the YouTube video -- have no credibility.

I just know you'll use Wiki or youtube when it suits your dumb a$$.

In any case, anyone with an ounce of common sense can see both my sources for what they are -- credible. Why? because there are a number of others out there that back my sources up.

So big boy. Show me how informed you are and give me your own sources to refute mine.

Then show the "number of others that back my sources up" because Wiki and Youtube are rife with little pathological liars like you editing stuff to make it sound like they believe. You got nothing little man and everyone knows it.

Wow, Blue, I confess I wasn't aware that "academia" and Wall Street were experts. Seems not too long ago you were ragging on Wall Street for being "greedy". And as for academia, do you even have a clue what that is? By the way, looks like the Fed is getting ready to burst the bubble doesn't it? Gotta watch out for those Wall Street suits and the Fed.

Not sure yet, but are you asserting we are responsible for the revolution in Egypt?

Take a look at the recent jump in jobless claims and tell me it is. Take a look at the workforce participation rates and tell me...with a straight face...that all is well. The jobs we ARE adding are primarily in the lower paying sector. Again, not promising for a consumer driven economy.
Only an Obama shill would be posting all over Topix about how great the economy is doing and how happy days are on the way again according to 'experts'. Funny how others aren't so optimistic.

And not surprisingly, not everyone is all Pollyanna positive about the economy.

Wikipedia can be contributed to by anyone and the stuff on YouTube is heavily edited, photoshopped and/or downright fake. There's a reason why neither of those sources are allowed as resources for papers or other scholarly works in high school OR college; they're simply unreliable. The fact that you are gullible to think otherwise or think ANYone is gullible enough to buy what you're selling is hysterically funny but oh-so-typical of progressives; anything they agree with automatically becomes irrefutable truth no matter how unreliable the source.
