As I was reading the pages of this thread I thought I was going to come across a well thought out response to Jordan telling him point by point why he is and has always been dead wrong with his predictions of the US economy and where its heading. Didnt find that and im too lazy to write one myself.
FED Money Printing Boom?
75,000 pages of IRS Tax Boom?
Obama's gazillion taxes and fees Boom?
Artificial Propping up of Banks, Markets and Treasuries Boom?
Only Boom I see is government/bankster induced: Inflation

GDP Shows Surprise Drop for U.S. in Fourth Quarter
The U.S. economy posted a stunning drop of 0.1 percent in the fourth quarter, defying expectations for slow growth and possibly providing incentive for more Federal Reserve stimulus.
The economy shrank from October through December for the first time since the recession ended, hurt by the biggest cut in defense spending in 40 years, fewer exports and sluggish growth in company stockpiles.
The Commerce Department said Wednesday that the economy contracted at an annual rate of 0.1 percent in the fourth quarter. That's a sharp slowdown from the 3.1 percent growth rate in the July-September quarter.
Booming like the roaring twenties I see.
I expect the next two to be worse.
This ra ra the economy is great shit is getting tired.

2012-Present "Shit's not so bad, we have some imaginary GDP growth, inflation, and by 28 year old still lives at home and works part time at Friday's, but we're in a solid economic 'recover'"
Sometime in the future: mega-recession if not depression
We're watching America collapse. You will never see it as good as the 90s ever again, end of story.
Yeah Friday's sucks but you just gotta believe in America first, then everything else just comes.
If military spending is the only thing keeping GDP growth rates positive then we are in big trouble. And we are only talking 40 billion here.....
America is back? Did you get that from Porter Stansberry?
Give Jordan and his well researched views some credit.
