2012 Election Year/Election... Recession/End of Iranian Threat
Automobile Companies are producing More Convertibles. Beleive it or not - this is an advance indicator - The Economy (in Corporate Perception) is about to arise from the dead.
"Spin" is what politicians use to change lies into perceived truth. All of the Macro-Numbers have been "Tweaked and Spun"
Unemployment has been reduced from 10% to 8% in the last 6 months. Actually it is more like 18% to 14%. 5% of the total working age population are unemployable. Even Walmart, who in the past has been hiring the "unemployable" has reduced this procedure. The Unemployable are those who are unfit to work, untrainable, unwilling..waiting for a miracle.
Annual growth in industrial production, real personal income and spending, as well as the year-over-year change in Gross domestic product, a broad measure of the nation's economic activity - is stuck at 1.5%+ for most of the past year - This growth has been reported at a higher % and is sure to be adjusted downward in the current year (when it is advantageous to do so...by the Government)*
*This is loosely paraphrased from Lakshman Achuthan, Economic Cycle Research Institute.
"Basically, Growth has been Flatlined"
So this year has begun with a "bang the drums" optimism, led by Government spending, new employment, High Stock Market, Mortgage revisions and a temporary "Utopian Feeling" moving through November, when Barack Obama, will be elected for a 2nd term.
An election of a Republican President, with their current thinking, will put us back into the "Dark Ages" and the solution will be an "American Spring."
"Europe, with the exception of Germany" will become the "Baggage" of the world - beginning in the fall of 2012, if that has not happened, as of yet.
Israel will Bomb Iran and destroy, what has been said to be "bomb proof," their Nuclear production, and a side show will be Government Buildings, Religious Buildings, and possibly the religious and Government leaders. This will be the first non-war-war-bombing where the population will not be considered - as the stakes of a successful elimination of the three threats is essential to the re-centering of thinking in our World. Israel will accomplish this and be blamed - as Jews always are.
China and "Putin-ville" will huff and puff... but that is all.
Personally, I consider this to be optimistic - most would consider this to be lunacy.
