Show me ! Where is the recession? Todays GDP report March 27, 2008 came in with our economy growing at the rate of 0.60 numbers. So what ? This economy has been red hot for years and a slowdown in winter months is normal. The weather was harsh, days were dark and holidays kicked in for 3 weeks, all kinds people avoiding work etc. So what? Things can get better and maybe next quarter you will have a better number you can chew and spit on. Just to remind and keep you level headed and sane- It takes 2 quarters of negative growth to pull in the " R " word. But you have already jumped to conclusions without proof or evidence! Its called extrapolating the data to suit ones emotional feelings and present it as if those were facts. I have had it with this doom and gloom club, their only occupation is a national sport and pastime called - pessimism and does nothing but creates damage. Get off that... now! Look what you did to the stock market brought it to its knees with your " imaginary recession" and made a fool out of yourself before the world! People in other countries think, that Americans are weak and cowardly. Things are not as bad as you made them and almost killed the financial market. A real recession wouldn't have done this much damage! Thats for sure.
