That is just a nice way of saying "He lied!"

From ABC news nonetheless.

He continues his "fear, uncertainty and doubt" schtick and the response from the market is that "capital is on strike."

Did you guys even READ this before posting it up. A 2005 study of 2001 numbers that narrow 54% down to 17% if you don't take some of the studies findings...

In 2001 the number one reason for the 1.45M BK was the dot.com burst and and it's fallout. The 2008 number, up 25% from 2007 is right behind 2001 and the primary cause, according to the Bankruptcy Lawyers Association is MEDICAL. The number is expected to go up 33% or higher than 2008 this year. So the 1 every 30 seconds MIGHT be on target.

But if we use the debunking number, and assume it completely we can correct that to 1 every 3.5 minutes derived directly from HEALTH [or Helath] Costs. I am positive that makes you feel much better about everything.


Focus on the issues. THEY are the things that will define the quality of life for your kids and grandkids.

Telepromptors and study variances are not the issues.

Once again, you may be practicing math without a license.

If you recalculation is correct, what other numbers from the Bamster would you like to have so far off by the ratio of 1 to 7? The budget deficit, for example?

As I recall you were upset by TSA excluding one false positive riding on an airplane.

Well, still a lot better than 4,300 dead US troops.
And the economy died when Bush killed it. I do not see how Obama could kill something that's already dead.
