you can't believe anything. they try to manipulate opinions all the time. and i certainly don't trust the goog. try this -- if you have google suggestion/autocomplete on your browser, type in these 3 words. you will get suggested web sites, up until you finish the m in scam, then the screen goes blank and forces you to press enter. the three words:  goldman sachs scam

The answer to being in shit up to your eyeballs has always been self delusion. Soon after that you're fucked and you just don't understand why. I'm thinking about developing my own economic delusion index. I'm certain it would be a powerful predictor of delusional growth. Any ideas as to what I should include (apart from the stuff above)?

I've seen many homes in Florida that had black mold growin on the studs and concrete (I guess black mold can grow on and consume anything) that they had to be torn down.

I do believe there are 20 million vacant homes in the U.S.

You don't get it. It's not just spin, the Fed created two parallel but divergent universes in response to the crisis: The paper economy, getting giddier and more bloated with 'liquidity' by the minute, and the real economy which is in a deflationary depression, getting paler and more anemic by the minute. That's biflation, baby! Lotsa Luck
