Jay Carney: Despite Economy's Contraction, We're "Still Poised" for Growth

I'm "still poised" to win the special lottery they secretly enter you in every time you masturbate.

I've got like sixty thousand secret Masturbation Lottery tickets. One of them smells like a winner.

Others... Well, I keep them in a crawlspace.

Economic Status Update: Poised.

Secret Masturbation Lottery Status Update: Lock of the week.

So it's going to be this all month, "best looking contraction you've ever seen" and "we're totally open to the prospect of a recovery."

All month? Laugh. The press won't ask about this past 3PM.

What I Meant To Say Was... Now this link to The Conversation should work.

I had to just clean a few things up for you.

18 I think, you dumb wingnuts, what Carney is talking about is Obama's economic plan, as he touted in the debates...obamanomics, if you will...of hiring 100,000 teachers and finally making the rich pay taxes.

Like every great economy in history, 100,000 teachers and taxes are the keystone*, epicenter, soul, what have you of economic growth.\

So, suck it. We expect growth to occur.

* = I can't be the only person totally annoyed with how this was literally the obama 2012 election campaign. right? He brought this up in each of the 4 debates (I mean, even Biden brought this up).

And how are we poised for growth?

We are keeping interest rates so low that there's hardly any ROI on investments.

Regulations up your ass, plebes.

Say, taxes are stimulative right? In as much as "economists" like Susan Feinberg think that government spending is stimulative, eh?

I can't really blame the GOP, the media's war on the truth continues. Even if a member of the GOP were to be clean and articulate (a first since reagan), there would be no platform from which to be heard.

And this is why we should stop being indulgent/tolerant of the media. We need to express our selves to them as we would when facing a hostile enemy, because that is exactly what they are. We must work AROUND them. Not through them. Everything that goes through them will be filtered and/or manipulated.

It's long past time for us to start buying controlling interests in the broadcast hardware.

I don't think I've ever seen such a look of misery and dejection on the face of my daughter as I just did a moment ago.

I sat down with her on the sofa and (as calmly as I could) tried to explain to her why the Republicans have tanked the economy. I tried to keep my voice steady, but it became increasingly difficult - the rage and feelings of helplessness were just too much. She could tell something was wrong. I found myself at such a loss for words - nothing made any sense; nothing makes sense anymore. I finally had to admit, " I just don't know - I don't know what's going on in this country anymore..."

When I finished her lower lip started to tremble and her eyes began to fill with tears, "Mommy" she said, "why are the Republicans doing this to the country?" Well, that was it for me: I finally fell apart. I just fell into her arms and we both began sobbing for several minutes. She had to comfort me and get me back on my feet. Sometimes I just think it’s too much, but seeing the strength in my daughters voice helped me to get through.

Lowes: Thousands, but are seasonal between Feb and Sept. They noted that the jobs won't last that long, only that some locations will hire in February for a few months and others won't hire until May or June for a few months.

Schlotskies: sub sandwiches

I'm totally open to the prospect of dinner at St. Elmo's tonight, and
tonight when I'm home eating meatloaf I will blame everyone else for not
picking me up, driving me downtown, and buying me a shrimp cocktail.



That's how totally open I am.

Our economy is held hostage by right-wing forces. International Bankers own the Wall Street Machine, and they would rather starve Americans than let that machinery perform. Letting it sit idle to embarrass our wise multiracial President is preferable to these -steins and - bergs than Barack Obama receiving his due credit for undoing the damage caused by that pathetic faux-Texan cowboy-wannabe.

So remember, all of you will starve in the cold and the dark simply because the Right wishes to humiliate our rightful Leader.

205 Interesting paragraph in the Hill article: "The unexpected dip was the first time the economy shrank since the 2009 economic depression, and came as a surprise to economists, who had projected modest growth."

One, I didn't think they ever referred to it as the depression. But since it is all about how the Republicans were to blame, I guess this makes sense. And 2, what happened early in 2009. Oh yea, Obama became president. So we have economic depression immediately after Obama is elected. And first contraction after he is reelected. Its almost as if electing Obama is bad for the economy.

341 An informal information session was held in my town at the little convention center, this in far far upstate NY, the topic being the new NY gun law. It was called a "forum."

There to answer questions, was a colonel from the NY state police.

I'll quote from the article, run loudly on the front page with a large color photo of those there in the crowd, and stupidly titled "A Shot at Understanding."

The state cop official said, "he thinks that the new law will help police officers keep people safe."

445 "I'm 'still poised' to win the special lottery they secretly enter you in every time you masturbate."

What makes me laugh at that Twitter post is that in reply to Uncle Facts' question, "Does it ever occur to you to ask serious questions that may actually be construed as 'journalism'?", Knoller says, "What question do you think should be asked but isnt?".

Seems pretty evident that if there are any serious questions that need asking, Knoller won't be asking them.

446 I refer to Jay Carney as "The Mouth of Sauron" for all of you Lord of the Ring fans. He lies on such a regular basis that his mouth should be cleaned out with bleach after every press conference.

He says "X" and I know that "Y" is the truth. He has zero credibility just like his master.
