The Good News is we’re doomed! Part II

by JohnHuang2



Early Tuesday morning I was tuned to Squawk on the Street on CNBC. Big economic report about to be released. During the wait, the ominous drumbeat from the TV box: ‘Period of anxiety’, ‘period of uncertainty’, ‘period of fear’, ‘worst yet to come’, ‘credit collapse’, ‘credit crunch’, ‘subprime collapse’, ‘housing collapse’, ‘recession ‘round the corner’, ‘recession already here’ — and then, just as I was standing slack-jawed on the ledge of the 20th floor and ready to jump, hot anchor babe Erin Burnett rescued me with the ISM index for August! Economy still going strong. Index was 52.9, so manufacturing oddly was still expanding during The Month when supposedly the economy had collapsed.

Ever since the start of the Bush Boom, libbies have predicted recession. Just ‘round the corner. Any Day Now. Hang in there, economy’s in its last throes. The corporate scandals will cause a recession. When that didn’t happen, Chimpy’s war in Iraq will cause a recession. When that didn’t happen, $60 per barrel oil will cause a recession. When that didn’t happen, hurricane Katrina will cause a recession. Didn’t happen, but $70 oil will cause a recession. Didn’t happen, but high interest rates will cause a recession. Didn’t happen, but the Housing Slump will cause a recession. Hasn’t happened and the “housing slump” — already six months old — has made little headway in crimping BushCo’s economy. Here are some more recent stats (since last week’s column) about the state of the economy during The Worst Housing Slump In Human History:


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* The Commerce Department on Friday reported that consumer spending in July surged by 0.4 percent — twice the rate in June — and income rose a solid 0.5 percent, the biggest increase in four months. “Analysts”, after much analyzing, expected income to rise by half of what it actually did. Their forecast for spending was just as good — off on the low side, 0.3%. The jump in spending comes even though the savings rate has been rising steadily for three months.
The Commerce Department also reported on Friday that orders to factories in July had surged by 3.7 percent. “Analysts” expected a 3.3 percent increase. A good chunk of the July increase was attributable to a big surge in demand for transportation goods, especially for cars, which saw its biggest surge in over four years.
* The Chicago Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) rose to 53.8 for August, when liberals claim the economy was collapsing. In fact, the August reading was slightly higher than the July reading — 53.4.
* The Fed’s favored gauge for inflation — the core-PCE deflator — inched up just 0.1%. Analysts had predicted 0.2%. Year-to-date, the rate is just 1.9% — well within the Fed’s target.
* The Dow Jones industrial average is up almost 8 percent for the year, 18 percent year-to-date. The S&P 500 is up 5 percent for the year, 14 percent year-to-date. The NASDAQ is up 9 percent for the year, 20 percent year-to-date. The Dow, S&P 500 and NASDAQ finished higher after the “selloff” in the month of August. The Dow is just off 4 percent from its all-time high of 14K. The Dow was up 1.1 percent in August; the S&P 500 was up 1.3 percent in August; the NASDAQ surged 2.0 percent in August. In the post-war period, the market is usually flat in August — despite the fact that Congress is in recess.
* The median existing home price in July was $228,900 — a “collapse” of $1,300 from a year ago, when the median existing home price was $230,200. Less than 15 percent of the subprime home mortgage market, which is 13 percent of the $10.4 trillion mortgage market, is late in payment; 98.7 percent of mortgages are not in foreclosure.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Up until now, recession cheerleaders blew off the good July numbers as ‘rear view mirror’ stuff — August killed the Bush Boom, man. Then the bullish PMI and ISM numbers for August come out, so libbies now say August numbers don’t count, instead it’s July’s drop in construction spending that counts — which drives my point home: The economy is expanding despite the “housing slump” and “credit crunch” liberals keep yapping about. Second-quarter GDP growth came in at 4% amid the “housing slump”. Overseas sales accounted for 1.4% of that 4% — the highest in 11 years. The labor market remained at full-employment. As for the August “credit crunch” that recession cheerleaders predicted would sink the economy, if you look at the tech sector, you’re seeing lots of takeover activity. The annualized sales rate for autos in August was 16.3 million vehicles — best showing since May and a big improvement from July’s figures, despite the high gas prices and falling home values. The ISM’s employment index for August ROSE more than a point, 50.2 to 51.3; the production index ROSE to 56.1 from 55.6; new export orders ROSE to 57 from 56.5.
So the stock market ends up higher during The Worst Liquidity Crisis In History, and the economy keeps growing during The Worst Housing Slump In Human History. If this is a “crisis”, I only hope it gets worse.


Anyway, that’s...
My Two Cents

God Bless Our Military

Below are names of some of our FReepers' loved ones who are serving our country. If you have someone you would like to add, please address a post to Billie; Aquamarine; Dutchess, The Mayor, DollyCali or GodBlessUSA and we will add their name to this list. As we pray for them, we pray also for all our nation’s leaders, and military personnel, and their families and friends. May God hold them close to His heart.

We ask Lord, that You guide the leaders of our great country in their hour of decision. The burden that has been placed on their shoulders is overwhelming. We ask that with Your infinite wisdom You guide them gently to the right decisions.

Please give us the strength, Lord, to get through each difficult and devastating day that faces each of us and our country. Protect and guide our Military that are now being called to duty, strengthen them in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Planting

READ: 1 Corinthians 15:42-53

We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. —1 Corinthians 15:51

An 8-year-old boy, who was learning in school about the way plants grow, was intrigued when told how a tiny seed that germinates in the ground could later burst through the soil as a plant.

During that same time, he and his family attended the funeral of a family member. At the service, the pastor talked about the final resurrection of our bodies.

Several days later as the family traveled past the cemetery, the boy remarked, “That’s where they plant people.” Seeds planted in the ground and bodies buried at death had connected in his young mind.

The apostle Paul used this same illustration of planting seed to describe death, burial, and resurrection to the Corinthian church (1 Cor. 15). He said that even though the body of the believer in Christ is buried in the ground, it will one day be raised to new life (v.42). Our natural body is weak, but our spiritual body will be free from sickness, decline, and death (vv.43-44). Our new body will be glorified, endowed with power, and like Jesus’ resurrection body.

We look forward to that day when the trumpet sounds, the dead in Christ are raised, and “we shall be changed” (v.52). As we anticipate that day, let’s spread the good news of our victory over death through Jesus (vv.56-57). 

Our Savior’s life for us was given
That we might one day bloom in heaven,
Our mortal bodies changed to be
Like His through all eternity! —Spicer

Christ’s resurrection guarantees our own.

Good article John, as usual. You are consistently one of the best reads here on FR.

Unfortunately, I do not like your massively excessive graphics. It distracts from and cheapens your message. It also makes your words quite hard to read -- exactly the opposite of your intentions.

The animated signature GIF is also not a good idea as it is highly distracting. In all, it tends to degrade you well written insights and making appear as thought they are the work of an rank amateur. In all, I am reminded of Mia T. While I appreciated her great efforts, I simply could not get past all the visual dreck.

In such cases, less is more. I am sure there are many capable professionals here who would be happy to give you some guidance. If so, please pass on any helpful comments.

I hope you take this as good intentioned critique and not as a crude flame.

Why, Jeff..You may get on John Huang’s ping list and read it all completly graphics free later on in the forum..

This is the “Finest’s” presentation of John. We like graphics here and appreciate the hostess who presents John’s essays so very much..

You might want to turn off the pictures in your browser and get the effect you are yearning for...or avoid “The Finest” in the future.

Fine work, as usual. Now that I've finally made the move to broadband, high graphics don't cause trouble. And, I like your signature.

What other places beside FR are your columns published? Do you get much mail in response? (I know from long experience that a single e-mail is a big deal. "A letter poured in." LOL.)

Hi Jeff, I believe you can set the FR settings so you get no graphics shown (not sure how though) & I am pretty sure the essay is posted other places where is is not embellished ..

Many of us really like the additional touches but I guess that is because many of us are very visual in orientation and that is one of the draws to this particular thead - The Finest.

But you are right, he does give a good read EVERY time.

glad you stopped by & if you cant find him elsewhere see about those setting changtes

I believe you can set the FR settings so you get no graphics shown...

What, and be able to appreciate the hard work of the many who follow the rules here - that is the Coulter and Kournikova family of rules. What about F-22 pics, viking kitties, zots, cry baby Democrat logos, fat Al, hurricane Howard Dean, and all the other visual gems to be found here? FR without pictures is like a movie without sound.

Yes, sometimes we keep something with “something we dont particularly care for” because the alternate is not to our liking.

But again I do understnad your point & if I come across the source of JH2’s NON graphic posting, I will FReep Mail you
