Jay,
You are pathetic!!!!

Stop cheering when there is nothing to cheer. The bull is out in the pasture somewhere and he is not back till the cow comes home.

Businesses that fold and the folks who get laid off usually end up in better situations when the economy rebounds. Nothing is for ever, and most find improvement when the excesses are rung-out.

The rose colored glass force is strong today.

Next thing you know the Mission Accomplished and Stay the Course banners will be out along side the "There is No Recession" billboards.



Have you tried Fleet?

It's not rose colored glasses. This place just requires some semblance of balance, and it's obvious no one else is going to provide it.

BTW: The mission (defeat of the Iraqi Army) clearly WAS accomplished, and we are clearly staying the course! And I still strongly believe that there is NO recession!

The finances of many states have deteriorated so badly that they appear to be in a recession, regardless of whether that's true for the nation as a whole, a survey of all 50 state fiscal directors concludes.
...
"Whether or not the national economy is in recession — a subject of ongoing debate — is almost beside the point for some states," said the report to be released Friday by the National Conference of State Legislatures.

You are confusing a political article with a financial one.

Poor management includes the bloke who starts a printing business in ground zero
of mortgage meltdowns and the family buying a new house while they
can barely keep up the payments on the old.
That's all management be it a small business or family finances.

Shit happens regardless of whether there is a recession or not. Businesses fold and others prosper. What's the stats ? 2 out of 3 fail ?

But Mission Accomplished...Anyway!!!



Report: Iraqi military far from ready

Published: April 25, 2008 at 2:22 PM

WASHINGTON, April 25 (UPI) -- Statistics on the strength of Iraqi security forces are unreliable and the country is unprepared to handle its own security, a U.S. inspector general said.

Stuart Bowen, the special inspector general for Iraqi reconstruction for the Defense Department, said that Iraqi figures don't show how many of the soldiers and police officers on the payroll are actually available, USA Today reported.

"The details included in the reports and other available information suggests a continuing need for caution in relying on the accuracy and usefulness of the numbers," he said in a report to Congress.

Iraq claims to have 530,000 people in its security forces, including 160,000 in the army. But Bowen found that many of them have been wounded or killed or failed to report for duty, USA Today said.

U.S. Army Col. Michael Fuller, chief of staff of the Multi-National Security Transition Command-Iraq, said in the report that he expects the Iraqi army to be able to function on its own in September 2009. The Bush administration originally said the Iraqi military would be self-sustaining in 2006.
