top 12 indicators the economy is bad

Top twelve indicators the economy is bad

12. CEO's are now playing miniature golf.

11. I got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.

10. I went to buy a toaster oven and they gave me a bank.

9. Hotwheels and Matchbox car companies are now trading higher than GM in the stock market.

8. Obama met with small businesses - GE, Pfizer, Chrysler, Citigroup and GM, to discuss the Stimulus Package.

7. McDonalds is selling the 1/4 ouncer.

6 People in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and are learning their children's names.

5. The most highly-paid job is now jury duty.

4. People in Africa are donating money to Americans. Mothers in Ethiopia are telling their kids, "finish your plate; do you know how many kids are starving in America?"

3. Motel Six won't leave the lights on.

2. The Mafia is laying off judges.

And my most favorite indicator of all:

1. If the bank returns your check marked as "insufficient funds," you have to call them and ask if they meant you or them.

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.

Hey atleast now you are making more than you were in high school! I mean even though 20 bucks now is worth what 10 was back then who cares! You get to put more zeroes on your gross income on your W2.

Imagine what people would say if they knew the real numbers?

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

I don't give society, at large, the perception with depth enough to understand the "real" numbers anyway.

Society, in general (obsama voters), seems to have to take their shoes off if ever they need to count over ten.

Provided, of course, that they realize that they don't have more than ten fingers/thumbs...

The news/administration would never skew any numbers to make it look like their bs is working, because they always tell the truth and would never lie to anyone especially the citizens of this country.
