No, these numbers are not for real. Another lie. 5 Million jobs lost since december'07, another 600k expected loss this month in April. Consumers strapped, together they owe almost a Trillion on their credit cards. They cannot tell you the truth, because we cannot handle the truth, the market would plunge 2000 points in a day if the truth was told. The truth will eventually come out though, it is only a question of time. My view, good luck...golf
Your message makes sense....hard to believe these numbers .....we are coming closer to a 1984 Orwellian state where all the info is fabricated on a daily basis....every one I talk to at malls, etc. is fairly depressed even the medicated ones on lethal doses of prozac...........they must be poling the folks at AIG and Merrill and GS who received massive bonuses compliments of Geit*ner (and the hard working taxpayer).
