Again...the same outliers as in the car sales thread.

    I should have just left it. Gosh. Could see it coming from a mile away. In fact, I'm fond of the notion that political science...much like the real stuff...is nothing if not prediction.

    Probably should just go ahead and add food spending while we're on the subject. Do you have a chart on standby for that too? May as well just go ahead and get it out of the way.

    So, you don't think the economy is improving? Really? If so, you're foolish. Things aren't even close to great, but they're slowly getting better.

    So any more homebuilding just means the bubble has yet to pop. Houses are far too expensive still.
    And just the opposite is true in my community. We aren't centered around military. We're centered around technology and engineering, and we're booming. There are literally hundreds of millions of dollars worth of construction projects currently underway, and people and businesses are flocking to the area because of low tax rates.

    Perhaps the economy is just going through a massive dead cat bounce? I suppose the Keynesian pump will work for just a wee bit more before another dump. In fact the Feds announced the "double it" approach in regards to QE. A cyclical pattern of more money and shorter booms is becoming more evident. Can't wait to see what happens when the QE totally decouples and sends the next bounce 6 feet into the red.

    Read what you just wrote five times. Then think about it.
    "But we want no excuse for any supposed mistakes of our ancestors. Let us first see it prov'd that they were mistakes. 'Till then we must hold ourselves obliged to them for sentiments transmitted to us so worthy of their character, and so important to our security...If the liberties of America are ever compleatly ruined, of which in my opinion there is now the utmost danger, it will in all probability be the consequence of a mistaken notion of prudence, which leads men to acquiesce in measures of the most destructive tendency for the sake of present ease. When designs are form'd to rase the very foundation of a free government, those few who are to erect their grandeur and fortunes upon the general ruin, will employ every art to sooth the devoted people into a state of indolence, inattention and security, which is forever the fore-runner of slavery-- They are alarmed at nothing so much, as attempts to awaken the people to jealousy and watchfulness; and it has been an old game played over and over again, to hold up the men who would rouse their fellow citizens and countrymen to a sense of their real danger, and spirit them to the most zealous activity in the use of all proper means for the preservation of the public liberty, as 'pretended patriots,' 'intemperate politicians,' rash, hotheaded men, Incendiaries, wretched desperadoes, who, as was said of the best of men, would turn the world upside down, or have done it already."
