The constant revisions to our GDP numbers, always downwards, after story after story of how the latest mediocre if not downright ugly numbers show growth and improvement, is starting to feel like these reports are created by the same people that constantly fudge the numbers to push the AGW agenda. That much touted 1.8% GDP first quarter growth that the collectivists kept telling us, for the umpteenth time, was an indication that things were getting better – finally: all blame Boosh!! for what came before even if he has been gone for half a decade now – has been revised, downward, as it has been every other time, to a measly 1.1%. That’s not even anemic: that’s tragic.
How much do we want to bet that the 1.7% GDP number for the second quarter, which we have not heard much about in the LSM these days, ends up being revised (care to bet against me that it will go down?) soonish, and end up at or below 1%? Things are not getting better: they are getting worse. That GDP revision is not the only number that’s bad. It looks like all that effort to prop up homeownership and all the stories about the recovery right around the corner, were just tall tales. In general everything but the number of people dependent on government, many of them quite employable, is going the down. Things are going bad in every indicator that matters. And if we let these fucking idiots do more damage in the name of trying to fix things, things are going to get much worse, and much faster. This collectivist shit not only doesn’t work, it is economically destructive. But we can keep pretending otherwise, while the world goes to shit.
These idiots will never admit that what they believe in is destructive and that it will never work, so we can’t compromise with them, because they are not willing to do anything of the sort. Collectivism sucks.
