    Consumer Confidence...

    In the news today, 'consumer confidence' slipped again...

    could that be because all we've heard about for the past three months has been that the economy is either in, or is headed into, the toilet?

    FBI calls it a clue.

    "The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money."
    - Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

    Tell me not, Sweet, I am unkind,
    That from the nunnery
    Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
    To war and arms I fly.
    - Lovelace

    While it is very clear that we are in an economic downturn / recession / whatever you choose to call it, I submit that the psychosocial ramifications of the inevitable cycle are being intensely manipulated by the mass (hysteria) media. The "terror" is being shoved down the throats of the minions, intensifying the reality....
    The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.

    I think it's an excuse to make us think the bailouts are necessary.

    Holy shit. Was that an ounce of realism creeping out there, Jenna? Are you beginning to see the light??

    I always thought the bailouts were fishy. As a social democrat I'm not too fond of the idea of using taxpayer money for corporate welfare.
