The economy’s real drag: Us

American consumers aren’t what they used to be — and that helps explain the plodding economic recovery. It gets no respect despite creating 14 million jobs and lasting almost seven years. The great gripe is that economic growth has been held to about 2 percent a year, well below historical standards. This sluggishness reflects a profound psychological transformation of American shoppers, who have dampened their consumption spending, affecting about two-thirds of the economy. To be blunt: We have sobered up.

Me, myself, I, you, them, they, us, those, all of you; are not spending enough money and dammit, start spending our we all go belly up. Just like that dead goldfish in you aquarium….spend, spend and spend you fools and quit saving that cold hard cash for a rainy day…

Yes our media is bought and paid for and has no bearing on what is really happening in the world, much less the west…

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, who has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home (&) Honestly, I have no idea how much to ask for, but is a gift of even $1 something you'd be able to consider, to help keep Windows to Russia online in a Tiny Russian Village?
