Does stuttering count as partial retard? (Never go full retard)

Can someone with Bberg Terminal post a chart of the calulated spread of that ISM/NFP correlation?

It looks like the recent spike would be epic -- that picture is worth a 1000-word teleprompt.

pretty soon, debt won't be a problem anymore when the dollar loses more of it's value an inflation keeps kicking like a mule.


Here in Belgium, AFTER 2 MONTHS the spillindexes where passed. That means all government workers get a 3% wage increase next month. They already go one in januari (5%).

And then we wonder why countries with over half of all working people being government employees go bankrupt...

Money = Debt

Money = Wealth

Therefore Debt = Wealth.

If you are not happy with the way things are, you are a looser. It's that simple, we live in the stainless steel triangle [Hollywood, Wallstreet, DC]. All points on this triangle have never done better. Iron curtain - fuck that, Amerika invented something way better.

What we are witnessing here is typical of "official government" reports. While some truth (not much but some) can be gleaned from reading the actual document, the cover letter/synopsis/summary is nothing more than Goebbels inspired propaganda of the Orwellian kind.

The summary says "Nothing to find here that will tell you what you don't want to know. Carry on".

I wish I'd never read 1984, I wish it were never written.  There's no way to hold any hope after reading it.

I think what frightens you is not the book itself but rather the realization that perhaps it is not fiction.

What frightens me most is that my fellow citizens are not only oblivious to the 1984 idea but unknowingly welcome and facilitate it.

1984 strikes fear in all of us....The MO seems to more along the lines of "Brave New World", There is good information more prevalent than could ever be imagined, but everyone is amusing themselves to death to notice otherwise.

"Retard" is such an insulting term.

Ever notice the degradation of clinical terms that describe people with a poor self image.

Retard, short for "mentally retarded", was the improved term to replace the clinical terms idiot, moron and imbecile that had become popular to describe people who likely didn't meet the criteria in full.  It almost seems like similar patterns in certain ethnic groups.

    This is a small componment of the economy.  With the dollar crapping out, our goods look cheaper to the rest of the world.  It is not unbelievable that manufacturing companies would be hiring.  If the Services one shows a huge jump in employment then you are definitely on to something.

    Food stamps are now used by more than 42 million Americans. The wide spread use has begun to put a real strain on grocery stores due to millions of shoppers showing up at stores on the 1st of the month when the SNAP swipe cards are loaded with credits.

    Grocers are asking for the credits to be loaded onto the cards on a staggered date basis to decrease the crowding and crowd control problems of having so much simultaneous "shopping" on one day.
