Trending where? This is the only place I see it.

This truly is our own little world here....

Trending or not, is the data correct?  Why, yes it is.  So while you and half of America focuses on fantasy based memes and hashtags, America is actually doing quite well.

US GDP slowed sharply in Q3 but big rebound expected in Q4

US GDP slowed sharply in Q3 but big rebound expected in Q4 

By Martin Crutsinger | AP 
Today at 8:38 a.m. EST 

WASHINGTON — The U.S. economy slowed to a modest annual rate of 2.1% in the October-December quarter, slightly better than first reported. But economists are predicting a solid rebound in the current quarter as long as rising inflation and a recent uptick in COVID cases do not derail activity. 

The increase in the gross domestic product, the economy’s total output of goods and services, was up from an initial estimate of 2% for the third quarter. But the revision was still well below the solid gains of 6.3% in the first quarter this year and 6.7% in the second quarter. 

The weak summer performance reflected a big slowdown in consumer spending as a spike in COVID-19 cases from the delta variant caused consumers to grow more cautious and snarled supply chains made items such as new cars hard to get and also contributed to a burst of inflation to levels not seen in three decades. 

While COVID cases in recent weeks have started to rise again in many parts of the country, economists do not think the latest increase will be enough to dampen consumer spending, which accounts for 70% of economic activity. 

The expectation is that the economy in the current October-December quarter could grow at the strongest pace this year, possibly topping 8%.

Prove me wrong.  You failed on Biden killing the oil industry.  Let's see what you got here.

Just another example of what passes for discourse around here. I never participated in any discussion about Biden and the oil industry here. Not a word, never even a reaction to a post. But, like we see here, some people assign positions to others all the time, usually as a means to denegrate them personally. 

Par for the course here for some, others play fair.

I saw a banner that said "If your business is hiring but not attracting more workers, you need to pay higher wages."

It's this thing called capitalism, law of supply and demand (actually two seperate "laws" but usually spoken of together), when something is in high demand and low supply, the price goes up.

D’ranged and the gang of internet bully wannabes were downvoting the fuck out of me some time ago so I instituted a policy of returning the favor in triplicate. 
Ie. If one of them downvoted me then I’d downvote three of their posts.

Apparently D’ranged fuck didn’t get the message and downvoted a dozen or more of my posts in a row do I downvoted three times as many of hers in return.

And guess what?
 

The bitch ran crying to Editor.

Editor screamed at me and told me to stop so I explained to Editor what the deal was and Editor told  to me that the crying by D’ranged had to stop otherwise he was going to perma-ban the two of us if the D’ranged cunt complained again.

So I put The sniveling bitch on ignore to placate the boss. Btw, D’ranged is the only person I’ve ever put on ignore in my 20 odd years of Internet forum use.

 

With hindsight, I should have fallen on the sword and taken the ban just to get D’ranged bitch banned, especially given that I had only a few hundred posts at the time.

English really isn't your first language now is it?  If you had any comprehension you would see that I advised SeaWorm to ask your advice on what stalking is and how to avoid it.  Your eternal butthurt means you believe I accused you of it.  Nothing is wrong with me other than reading the drivel you post.

If butthurt exists for more than four hours seek help.

Talk about stalking I really can’t remember you ever responding with anything of substance to anything I’ve ever posted. It’s always been insults, personal infective,  and piling on with all your buddies. Talk about stalking. Come to think of it though I can’t remember much of anything of substance you ever contribute so there is that. Lol.

The real press, like the NYT and the WaPo, seem to be going to extremes to not seem like they are cheerleading. This approach leads to things like thrashing out policy being reported as "Democrats in Disarray". They went far lighter on DJT than warranted so they didn't seem biased, whereas the real cheerleader press like Faux News babbles bullshit about being "Fair and Balanced" while shaking the pom-poms. The low-key reporting on Biden is not helping his numbers, and real successes are almost buried. Biden's own press gang is also not helping with the numbers, I think they need to be far more positive, showing the real positive changes that are happening.

Funny thing, all these biblical rules, laws, thou shalts and thous shalt nots; never is there a mention of gambling, or dancing, or whoring (from either direction).

There is a mild thou-shalt-not against drinking to excess, but "excess" is rather loosely defined. Most people believe there is a commandment against lying, but this is not the case. There is a commandment against lying in a manner that hurts your kin or your neighbor. Lying to or about other people is fine, as is coveting their wives.

Yeah, "thou shalt not kill" is pretty clear and simple. Not surprising the RWNJ brigade manage to fuck it up, too.

Ignore the real rules, get all pissy about a bunch of false ones that their own leaders suckered them, so as to make more money off them.

Then act all stern and demanding about their rights.... yeah
