    Like throwing a gasoline on wet timber. It looks like it ignited and is going to continue to burn only to die due to the dampening effects of the water.


    Yes, too little, and over too soon to ignite much, with the dampening as you mention.

    About like having too little of hill to get an engine turned over to start the car if you have a manual transmission. A bit of commotion when you pop the clutch, and then you realize you are hosed. </div></div>

    True. However my point was that the accelerent would not be able to ignite the wood due to the forces working against it.

    No matter how much gas you pour on petrified wood it still wont ignite.

    They tried to emulate what FDR attempted. Which is a entirely different argument.
    The approach to the situation was wrong. Especially now that we are interlocked in global economy which exerts its own economic pressure. In this case a dampening effect.
    I dont believe they took into account all the variables. If that is even possible when considering considering the complexity of the global market.



    There isn't anything wrong with America that liberal ideology, properly applied by government experts, can't make worse.

    This is selective memory.

    First, in the recent down adjustments, those were down adjustments FROM UP ADJUSTMENTS, and even net the secondary downward adjustments, they are still higher than first stated.

    Then, there had been a many month period where all the adjustments were UP, and stayed there, without later numbers found requiring them to be reduced.

    That you do not know this is a function of observation bias, and that such things were buried in the middle of articles, not the headline. I don't recall anyone here trumpeting those upward adjustments, and of course, neither Fox or the so-called liberal media has had much interest in taking any notice of these facts, as headline material.

    Waiting to see if an addon will surface to correct it. </div></div>

    I use Firefox, which doesn't have this problem. What's your browser?

    12.0 for me. I blame the beta 13. Go with the Delta 13 rack.

    Fewer careers were added than anticipated in May, according to Thursday's state careers report. The survey, introduced by the Bureau of Labor Stats, continues to indicate slow, extraordinary financial progress across the nation. Check more here.
