Another sign is real estate agents offering sage advice like:

"in today's challenging market, sellers have to be willing to lower their price if they expect to get top dollar".

Doublespeak at its best. Wouldn't more appropriate be "sellers have to be willing to lower their prices even for a dollar?"

"After three years of a sluggish economy and little action in the real estate market, Ken and I needed to rethink how we spend our days. Yes, we are still Realtors. We LOVE real estate! But, it's not the ONLY thing we love to do, and until the market improves, we need to find, as they say, 'other streams of revenue'."

The  minneapolis fed head comes out and says that the fed buying more government debt should not be viewed as the economy being worse than it is. Of course, the fed just buys when it feels like and randomly for no reason at all. Its its all warm and fuzzy.

You should feel warm and fuzzy, comrade.

The Fed is working together with the great people of Soviet Amerika to create a new era of infinite prosperity.

Buy GM.

The cherry on the cake will be if they pull out of the IPO stating unfavorable market conditions as KKR did last week.

Seeing as their entire market cap was created by THEFT, they're just waiting for more thieves to dump loot into the market.

Complete madness will be "favorable conditions" for the last rape of the economy.

AWESOME, food prices are going to go through the roof & POT is going to profit hugely on the backs of the masses

What a wonderful world we have. At least with XOM we can choose to ride a bike or walk. 

Screw this, I'm buying a huge field & growing crops... ear of corn $5 each. Economic recovery is here!

Honestly awaiting a pre-approved credit card for my dog Gizmo. 

And come to think of it, maybe open an account on AOL with screen name Gizmo, do a few clicks here and there, link into some upscale advertising (Tiffany, etc.) and maybe, just maybe sombody will send a card and I can contact the WSJ for a front page, center column.

Oh, the caninity of it all....

Martha, get the popcorn out!

Timothy Geithner starts using finger quotes when saying anything at all.

Like referencing the size of his manliness or his credibility?

When Geithner (or any other moron who has never written a paycheck, filed any of the half-zillion reports to the various overstaffed, incompetent, government bureacuracies [not including a tax return]) writes an Op-Ed about "the recovery".

F*ing morons.  It is staggering.

GM is IPOing. That must be why MTLQQ (stock for the former now bankrupt GM) has doubled over the last four days!

(Just a reminder: MTLQQ has almost no intrinsic value; worth about 0.02 so don't buy it thinking that it's the new GM.)

Did they airbrush the shit out of that old skank or what?

Oh wait, I get it it's an analogy to the fucked up illusion of an economy.

Good job thinking outside the box.
