    LOL.

    Total hacks.

    Nobody can explain their views.

    How very predictable.

    Provide proof that "every" member says that, or I'm locking this.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    What have I to answer? I have never said negative growth was better then positive. Nor have I seen anyone on here say that.

    You have a problem with little lies Satanicus. You should work on improving your integrity. It's a sad man who has none.

    If we have positive growth in GDP and jobs ... and members of CU say we are heading in the worng dicretion , then negative growth MUST be the right direction.

    It's all very simple.

    Tell , me , is the GDP and job numbers heading in the right direction ?

    First, post where anyone has said this. 2nd, you need to be more specific. What is your definition of positive? Is it sustainable? By positive do you mean 50 people were hired? Look at this graph:

    http://data.bls.gov/PDQ/servlet/Surv..._view=net_1mth
    Under Bush, with few exceptions, there was positive job growth, meaning more jobs created than lost, until the Democrats re-took control of the House and Senate. Since Obama took office, the decline exploded with slight increases from time to time. In short, there was more job growth under Bush than Obama. Now let's discuss the strawman you're trying to build. And this is why I ask for specifics. Let's play the hypothetical game for a second. To you, I'm assuming, this is considered positive growth:

    November 2010: Unemployment claims filed-400,000 Private sector hirings-80,000

    December 2010: Unemployment claims filed-300,000 Private sector hirings-81,000

    Looking at this using your warped logic, Obama's policies should be touted as a success because 1,000 more people were hired than the previous month when someone with an IQ above room temperature will look and see that even though there were 1,000 more people hired this month than last, there was still a net 219,000 loss. If you think this is something positive, then you and I have different ideas on what positive is. Now, give me specifics so I can see exactly what you're talking about or shut your cake hole.

    Tell , me , is the GDP and job numbers heading in the right direction ?
    Just to be clear, fuckbag, if the GDP and Job Growth minus the amount of jobs lost gives us a negative number, it's not positive and the country is heading in the wrong direction.

    Please explain why negative GDP growth is better than positive growth.

    OR ...

    Answer this question ... The question that CAN NEVER be answered on the CU.

    I predict NOBODY but NOBODY will answer this question.

    I need to expound on this a bit because I have a feeling that Stupidicus is skewing numbers to try to make his argument so I'll explain it using football as an analogy:

    The Eagles are playing the Cowboys. In the game, the Cowboys scored per quarter, like this:

    1st-3
    2nd-6
    3rd-7
    4th-10

    See? Their point total increased each quarter giving them 26 points. That's positive growth, right? No so fast. The Eagles scored:

    1st-7
    2nd-7
    3rd-3
    4th-14

    So, even though even though the Cowboys scored more points than the previous quarter, they still lose the game. See, until you get the complete picture, you're only getting half the story. This is Stupidicus' game.

    Oy. Seems as though little childlike minds need bigger sized letter that are bolded. OK, I'll play along...


    NOT WHEN THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS GETTING BIGGER ALONG WITH IT!!!!!!
