Is it slowing or is this really what was expected?

Post by Guest on Fri Jul 27, 2012 12:05 pm



A good read:

http://economywatch.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/07/27/12988841-us-economys-growth-rate-slows-in-2nd-quarter?lite

How many of the major economists actually predicted that this would be the "new normal"? The ups and downs WERE predicted. So why is everyone so shocked?

I feel like we are being treated like children. Even us non-economists could see that this do-nothing attitude was going badly.

Who told the media that Americans are a bunch of fools? The drought is going to make food prices rise by 5%? Are they serious? Food prices have risen by more than 5% for NO reason and they expect us to believe them when they say the drought won't do much more harm than that? Why do they refuse to be honest? Why are they lying about everything?

How was this a surprise? Too many are gifted at purposely acting surprised.

Even when I still had a job, the economist were telling us that the housing bubble will burst but Bush and Congress ignored the warnings and thought it was okay to spend away the surplus by putting us into two unpaid for wars and tax credits for the rich.

Even when Obama had gotten into office, the economists said that job creation would be the last to recover. Then wouldn't it have been logical to have had tackled that in the beginning of his presidency. I agree with the opinion of this op-ed writer:

I have been keeping a record since January of just how far my food money goes. I don't care anymore about the stares while I shop with my list and calculator. My $200 used to just about get me everything I needed as far as the major staples for the month, I usually kicked in about $18. Now I am kicking in $62 or more. This is strictly food. I am not talking luxury foods, just the basics. That doesn't include lunchmeats, bread and milk for the month either, that's weekly shopping. Just the staples.

Care to elaborate? Two posts saying basically same thing and off topic.

IRS Form 1099 software


Sir or mam, I'm sorry but I don't understand this or other posts you've made today. Has something upset you? From the link you have provided, are you selling software here?

Thanks, macky. I was busy deleting other links and threads! Because the IRS does not allow personal printing of form 1099 and distinguishes it with a special ink, I believe this software is illegal.
