I just wanted to point out that the real Washingtonians (those east of the Cascades) can't stand you liberal clowns in Seattle, and how you guys are destroying their state (like a lot of your transplants from California did to their state before moving north).

Zuckerman: U.S. On Brink of Deflation Crisis

The U.S. is on the precipice of a deflation crisis, one which will devastate consumers and businesses alike, publisher Mort Zuckerman writes.

“Inflation typically results from too much money chasing too few goods,” writes Zuckerman in U.S. News & World Report.

“Today, too much supply is chasing too little demand.”

Deflation is already part of the economic picture in the United States. Homeowners are trimming their total debts by $200 billion this year, and banks and businesses are paying down debt by $2.3 trillion, writes Zuckerman.

“Small-business lending will contract by at least $113 billion,” he adds.

Since the credit crisis began some back in late 2007, the credit available to consumers and the small-business sector — which employs half of America’s workforce — has pulled back by trillions of dollars. Most of that has been because of the reduction of credit lines.

“The hope that new bank reserves would be available to prop up the faltering economy has not been fulfilled,” writes Zuckerman.

To reverse the deflationary effects of this demonstrable low capacity utilization, demand growth will need to rally.

“For this, we would need a significant improvement in employment and hence spending. But the job market is even worse than the overall economy, and the prospect is that high levels of joblessness will persist beyond the end of the recession,” writes Zuckerman.

Many firms continue to cut the number of their employees and reduce discretionary costs, like advertising. This has significantly improved profit margins, even in the face of lower demand, he adds.

This is a global phenomenon. Bloomberg News is reporting that the Bank of Japan said deflation will linger for a third year there,

I made some decent money on Hawaiian real estate investments, but there is no way I would live on that craphole. Too humid, too many volcanoes, and a good risk of being wiped out by a damn tsunami!!

And if Gore and/or Kerry had won we'd be as stuck in the mud as we were with Clinton. When you and your liberal scumbag politicians develop a backbone and stop whining about wars that don't concern you, since you obviously don't have the sack to serve your country, just hate it, let me know.

Right, like fixing the CIA and the intelligence community after Clinton gutted it, or reestablishing morale in our military, the finest fighting force on the planet EVER. You drones need to pull your heads out of your asses, get over the Bush years, and try and find a way to fix things YOUR donkey in chief is screwing up TODAY!

Yeah, it would be just terrible to be "stuck in the mud" with such a huge financial surplus like the one we had when Clinton left office! All that extra money would certainly have led us to a major economic depression!!
