Hope - it appears - peaked at the start of the year in the US, following the global coordinated central bank pump which ramped it from lows to highs within a few months. All that hope - and then some - has now apparently faded. The General Business Conditions expected six months forward dropped to its lowest level since March 2009. What is perhaps worse, given the focus on jobs jobs jobs, is that for the first time since April 2009, the employment outlook for employment turned negative - suggesting firms are looking to reduce employees at the fastest rate in over three-and-a-half years. The hopium seems to have been depleted...

Yes indeed. The affects of Hopium withdrawal are in full swing. Mr. Soetoro will have quickly run out of other people's money to redistribute. The symptoms are vomiting, diarrhea, the shakes, and convulsions. This has already manifest itself in the fall of the stock market, massive layoffs, funny business with unemployment numbers, and the delirium of having no direction. The antidote is conservatism, but it is viewed as a pill too bitter to swallow by the masses, and has had bad press from the White House Scribes who call themselves reporters.

Ah, yes -- the hopium may be drawn down, but there's always dopium!
Funny you should put up a picture of a person vomiting ..... I went poll-watching on Election Day and got a bad headache, and I had to go home an hour before the polls closed after throwing up violently in the men's room. Boy, that was a bad day all around! I had some hope Romney would win, but by 10 o'clock (CST) enough returns were in from Ohio to show it was all over, and the networks were starting to call the election for Barky. At least the headache didn't come back.
Can we get a mulligan on the election thing?

‘Oh dear, ‘ said the man with the awful disease. ‘I think I’m going to die.’
‘Farewell, ‘ said the man who was drowning.
Said the man with the disease, ‘goodbye.’
So the man who was drowning, drownded
And the man with the disease past away.
But apart from that,
And a fire in my flat,
It’s been a very nice day.
Have A Nice Day
