The are using "obamacare rules" to account for holiday sales and consumer confidence. If you place something in a shopping cart, it is considered a sale. If you stare at it blanky on a shelf, it is a sign of strong confidence.
ILLOGICAL! PLEASE EXPLAIN!
White House press narrative
* Obama giving govt workers a raise.
* Military pensions to be cut.
Why is there never any mention of cutting Welfare (which pays 2X what a minimum wage job pays) ?
Or if the mall parking lots are full, it means that consumers are buying more than eva.
See web hits = paid premiums.
I'm HFT trader I just bought and returned same gifts 50 times within an hour. Store personell was very happy as it increased their sales 50 fold. (Returns are not deducted from revenues in new accounting rules for retailers - next year they are considering to add returns to revenue)
Returns = Inventory = Revenue++ = Profit
Returns are now miscelanious assets with OPPORTUNITY to sell them a second time.
Return channel-stuffing is the new gift-giving. Or just sell a bunch of Apple boxes out of a van filled with bricks and floor tiles. Same difference.
that is exactly how i process every MSM front page: it's is total schizoid contradictory signals bullshit! we r doomed...
They're having problems keeping their lies straight.
Just needs the holiday "Eggnog Decoder". Makes ferpict chense now.
And by Eggnog decoder you mean the rum to filler ratio?
Fuck you, algo's!
MSM is truly a joke.
I was chatting with a few sheeple at a holiday party recently. Even they are starting to realize the economic situation is is not how the MSM claims it to be.
Same here.Except for the Progressive Government CA State Employees.They think it's fucking awesome.
I shit you not.These are the same people who think MSNBC is objective.Seriously.
Whatever you may be thinking, they're the one who make policy for you and me.Whoopieshits!
OK, last punishment. I am heading out to the mistletoe tree, and a bottle of grog.
Why did the three wise men smell like smoke?
'Cause they come from a far.
Thanks, Merry Christmas to you as well, I'm off to do my warsh.
Thank god for NFLX. May the stock go to $10,000,000/ Share. Hulu plus is also good thanks to the Janus-Criterion collection of movies.
Looks like they set the algo's to 45° today. stocks, up and to the right - bonds down.
once they use arima-zyx to seasonally adjust this year's xmas sales, im sure sales will be up 4.8% from last yr.
But never mention real inflation up 10% for the year.
economic headlines are the proverbial mood ring. the change in color means anything you want it to mean, and of course its not correlated to any rational or empirical evidence. there's an axiom in advertising, that people hear the first part of anything you say, and ignore the second half. when alcoholic beverage makers say PLEASE DRINK responsibly, the last part is deemphasized. if you want the truth you have to hang around and read the disclaimers, and the small print on the back of your credit card, and if you want to know what they are trying to tell you, listen to the first part, the first part is better than the truth, it's a lie told in their self interest, its what they want to say to you...
Have you heard about the new method of measuring consumer confidence. The statistician go into a cemetery at around 1 in the morning. "Shout, Is anyone here dissatisfied with the economy!" The occasional homeless person skews things a bit but other than that this method is showing nearly 100% satsfication with the economy.
Then they shoot the homeless person and revise the number upward.
Even better they lend him a freshly printed $100 dollars while making him sign a loan contract at around 450 APR. Not only does the 100 bucks boost the economy but the Interest and Penalties when he defaults gets counted in the GDP mulitplier for the year.
You can make stats say anything you want. On paper you can make the Cleveland Browns look like a playoff team. Merry xmas to all you good, like minded people. Its time to start drinking my dirty belvedere martinis.
Im gonna give you some pussy never.
Extra...Extra...Get your oxymorons at Reuters before they run out.
Only a moron on oxy would publish conflicting ideas on contiguous lines.
"Partly sunny, chance of rain, wintery blast/deadly heat, blizzard/drought."
And the recovery is here because the FED is only spending $75 Billion/month.
And employment is great because there is no target rate anymore to keep ZIRP.
MSM constantly says, "Alchohol and gasoline don't mix".
B.S., I tried it the other day and it doesn't make a bad drink.
"I asked for water, she brought me gasoline."

Send us more fucking food stamps Barry - you fucking piece of shit.

Mo gimme dats!
They have finally Lied sooooo much everything they say contradicts itself!
Welcome to Thunderdome!!
Is the sewage spewing from the White House any different?
Phone surveys? I dont think they tell us anything anymore. Just think about who actually would take the time to answer these stupid things. Think about their age, their wealth, and their type of "telephone".
