Higher Taxes, combined with increased food, fuel, and other costs can also lead to Depression. Expect the unexpected, and be ready (if possible) for everything.

Excessive government regulation, and complying with it is the greatest cause of inflation. Thus, reasonable deregulation, tax and spending Cuts, and working on a Constitutionally required Balanced Budget would eliminate both Threats Immediately.

But, since Barack isn't "responsible", in his own eyes for what's happening, I might as well be talking to the Wind.

At least I know I can expect it to blow at some point.

Mr. Shedlock has repeatedly expressed the opinion we went back into recession in June or July. 2012. Only manipulation of the numbers and a fawning Obama media have kept this out of the limelight. As the old saw goes, "you can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time but you can't fool all of the people all of the time." As the economy continues to slide and civil unrest increases Obama's real agenda will begin to make itself known.

Obviously you can fool 51% of the voters on everything for eight years.

On the other hand, in 1988 we had an economy we'd love to see now, & the pop media & characters like Jimmy Carville kept griping about "the worst economy in 50 years" and "It's the economy, stupid" which helped Bill Clinton defeat GHW Bush.

Absolutely Right! The present American Obonomy Began after Barack's first Inauguration, and will end only after he's permanently out of Office.

An impeachment would certainly cause that welcome result immediately, when it happens. Then, maybe we'd be permanently out of the "Bush".

So, am I right or wrong?

Maybe fewer voters would be "Fooled", if the campaign season were limited to 6 months.

Then, We the People wouldn't be force fed the propaganda for nearly as long. Naturally, restricting campaign adds to showing the differences between each candidate's view, instead of the concentrated attempt to bury each other in B.S. would also help.

Follow that with Real Debates, and the voters would be better prepared to cast a well-informed vote.

Of course if 51% of registered Voters actually voted, and the results were reported honestly, there would also be a difference.

And if Exit polling results were reported after all poling places closed, that would help as well.

Here's an interesting story from Friday regarding sales at Walmart that just came my way: Wal-Mart Executives Sweat Slow February Start in E-Mails.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. had the worst sales start to a month in seven years as payroll-tax increases hit shoppers already battling a slow economy, according to internal e-mails obtained by Bloomberg News.

"In case you haven’t seen a sales report these days, February MTD sales are a total disaster,” Jerry Murray, Wal-Mart’s vice president of...
