Keep talking it up and we'll have the sheep too scared to go forward and do business. ( a self fulfilling prophesy ) The Dems will do anything, including destroy the economy just to knock Bush. If they succeed, I hope they serve good soup in the lines on the street.

It has been here for a while? This only proves my thinking that these economic problems are merely psychological in origin stemming form the spoiled and negative American psyche. It ridiculous, if we actually have to work for something or can't have what we want right this minute, the economy's going to hell and the end is near.... Kirt is correct, it's a self fulfilling prophesy being driven home from day one by the political party that hates any good news.

I don't know how anyone thinks we are in a recession, times are the best I can remember in my lifetime and I am 65 years old. We sure didn't have much when I was growing up and now I have more than I deserve. I still work on at a fulltime job with good pay and benefits. Learn to tighten up on your purse strings and save for what you want instead of jumping into debt. I am sure the democrats are wanting to make times look bad so if they get into office they can say they saved everyone from going bankrupt.

I think Kirt Grayson is being plagiarized by this dirt bag in the interest of showing his filth. I think Mr. Sutti is mentally deranged.
