  2. yeh they're actually looking more like weeds on closer inspection.
  3. Sales at food stores fell 1%. Sales at restaurants and bars rose 0.2%


    Perhaps this is why is doesn't look like a recession at face value. People go out to eat and restaurants are still busy
  4. Americans will still be lazy... No matter how bad the economy is. Pay an extra buck or 2 for someone else to cook your meal vs shopping and having to cook and clean up.

    Gotta love that American attitude. lol

    gotta love the typical parroted American attitude quip.
  6. My apologies Mr. Technical Analysis. I meant a few extra bucks.
