Anyone believe this BS? "November consumer confidence hits more than four-year high"
I call Bull Shit.

"Consumer confidence rose in November to the highest level in more than four years, a sign U.S. household spending will keep growing.

The Conference Board’s confidence index climbed to 73.7, the highest since February 2008, from a revised 73.1 reading the prior month, figures from the New York-based private research group showed today. The median forecast of 75 economists surveyed by Bloomberg projected a reading of 73."

I believe it, just not for the supposed reason of "trusting" the Obama administration!
Just figure so many people have it in the back of their minds the doom & gloom about the end of the world on 12/21/12 and although they don't entirely buy it, they are going to buy the shit out of things and run up credit cards to near max just in case the SHTF and they won't have to worry about paying it all back.
If nothing happens then come Jan 1, 2013 there will be tons of people NOT paying their bills and SHIT will REALLY hit the fan financially! So just wait and see the outcome and when I'm right send Obama a message to elect me head of "how to not pay for credit owed to CHINA" lol!

I don't know about anyone else, but we've had to buy several large ticket items this fall. They were old and just worn out. We really didn't want to buy a new washing machine, but there isn't a good repairman here anymore.

We don't go shopping on Black Friday, but we had to this year. Youngest son had to get a new backpack before he went back to school. The zipper broke on the way home. There weren't ANY crowds at our mall. The mall wasn't busy last year during December, either.

I wonder how many people are like us. Stuff is just worn out and can't be repaired anymore.

I ditto your B.S
And raise ya one! Thanksgiving night Me, My Daughter, Mom, two of my sisters, their adult kids and My Brother in law all drove to the Jefferson Outlet Mall for Black Friday( well thurs) deals. While traffic was backed up a few miles at all entrances and they had police escorting and assigning parking, Me and My Daughter who drove up together looked at each other and said.... wow...only 20 min to get. Parking spot??? They arent that busy this year. This is a HUUUUUGE OUTLET MALL (100 + stores) anyway we all got separated doing our own thing and I ran into a Sheriff & asked him where the Ralph Lauren store was... we got to talking ( for like 45 min) and he told me they count all the cars coming in. He said this year there was ONLY 4122 cars that came- this was at like 2:15 am. I told him my daughter & I noticed not that many ppl out walking around. We didnt have to push our way thru anywhere, the longest line was a 15- 20 min wait. This is a mall that 3 yrs ago ppl where hopping the fence & running crom cops to get in!!! He said 3 yrs ago there total was over 8700 --- SO ONCE AGAIN THEY R LYING ABOUT THE NUMBERS!!! We REALLY need to start wearing wading boots....THE CRAP IS JUST TOO DEEP. THEY TREAT THE PUBLIC LIKE A BUNCH OF MUSHROOMS---- KEEP THEM IN THE DARK AND FEED EM BULLSHIT CONSTANTLY!!
Those who fail to have a plan are planning to fail.

This news is fake. Any news of reduced unemployment is fake. The news that it was neck and neck for a month leading up to the election was fake. The pOTUS's long form and selective service registration are fake. His mom's side of the family's C.I.A. background isn't.

Re: Anyone believe this BS? "November consumer confidence hits more than four-year high"
The deals aren't there this year either. Cyber Monday also sucked. 10% off, not 25% or free shipping and no discount, not both like I'm used to. Granted, my sample is sewing and sporting stuff but sewing crap is always good the weekend after Thanksgiving. Even $1000 sewing machines were $600, not $400 like usual. These are pretty standard sales every year, online and in stores.

They are looking at the amount they made for the weekend. With less deals, prices not being steeply discounted, etc., sure it looks like it's improving. But the test is volume, which amounts to shoppers in the store, and that is way down.

It's a lie of omission. They are omitting the fact that you're not saving like you have in years past and they are omitting the fact that people didn't shop like before.

Well one must assume that most of the Obama supporting

Won't they be shocked when it all comes crashing down...

Probably much sooner than you think...

After being captive audience to a reasonably intelligent looking thirty-something expounding on the benefits of socialism, along with the need for family farms and ranches to be taken over by government to "save" them from those ignorants' greedy misuse... I'd damn near believe anything.

Automatons regurgitating absolutes.

I didn't know whether to get mad and thump him on the noggin...

(It was the gov running 100Ks head of cattle here that turned it into a wasteland where once were springs within a day's walk in any direction and waist high grass as far as you could see...
Yeah, they're gonna save that shit. You bet.)


... or just slit my wrists right there.

You can't educate them. They are convinced they KNOW and that God... no, make that Government! is on their side.

If I weren't so sure I chose to be here at this time, I would believe I have outlived my era.

That make believe nonsense is as believable as the stupidity spewed by the Labor Secretary Hilda Solis. It boils down to nothing more than feel good stories pumped out by the obama regime keeping his sheep content and happy.

Labor Secretary: Uptick in Unemployment 'Only Shows You That There's Confidence'

“We are on a right path here. Even though the unemployment ticked up a bit, it only shows you that there’s confidence,” Solis said, “People are looking for jobs. So, it also ticks up when people are engaged and looking for work.”

The PTB are trying to create a false sense of security. Tell people what they want to hear, more are likely to spend a bit more during this time of year.

When in reality, so many more live below the poverty line, so many more living on food stamp, so many about to lose unemployment benefits.

How can it be both ways?
