"Gloom " is a reality for citizens
    #2822189 - 06/23/04 09:46 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Anyone who thinks this economy is doing better hasn't been talking to average Americans. According to polls, the percentage of people who say the economy is in good shape is lower now than it was in January. Recent Gallup and CBS News surveys show President Bush  :mad2:

Yes, the economy gets stronger then booms. Most people dont feel it until it booms, which is yet to come.

The economy is improving, just becaue a million people who have no idea how the economy works (other than their own personal financial situation) doesn't make it so.

Probably because you spend so much time sitting around complaining about "libbies"..

No problem with the economy here....in Phoenix....

Just one look around town and i see alot of fat people and now hiring signs...

I just got a job in fact.... I quit my last one a few months ago to devote more time to school...so if i can work part time sporadically, and remain self sufficent while going to school, i dont see how anyone can not support themselves working full time and not going to school....

I think a new course should be introduced in high school called "family budget 101"

Nope, not at all.  I'm not a complainer like many on this site, you included:crying:.  Don't confuse complaining with pity.  I pity libbies because they're philosophically weak.

They would much rather have you support them. Most of the people that complain, or whine if you will, about the economy expect riches and handouts along the way. That's what makes a good economy in their eyes. That smacking sound you hear is reality hitting them upside the head.

Do they really tho? How many of them have you met? Or do these people exist largely in your imagination.

Comparing pay rises of corporate directors with the average pay rise would imply the exact opposite.

First of all you're not an American so anything you have to say about our economy is moot. Don't you have a crumpet to munch on?
