Too bad you are going to give all that check back to the government, plus the DC brokerage fee. So what's the point then when the government takes the money back, and then some? Funny how this is how paychecks worked in Soviet Russia. In Soviet USSA, you give government paycheck!

As for the media, now you know why Bush waited until the last moment to break the news. I don't blame the media though, I blame people. For some reason, when there's bad news, the general public has to over react. I remember a King of the Hill episode were Arlen was in danger of flooding and Hank went to Mega-Lo Mart to buy fuel filters. Of course all he could get was a 12 pack of them so when he went to go pay, everyone got pissed that he was buying all the fuel filters since apparently, fuel filters are a flood necessity. Heck, when ever they call snow by me, the supermarkets are packed by me, as if 10' was going to fall for 3 days instead of the 1-2" predicted overnight.

I couldnt agree with you more.

But then again, if channel A says everything is cool, and channel b says everything is going to hell in a handbasket, everyone will be watching channel b. So with channel A having lower ratings thier commerical airtime becomes less valuable, but people will still buy it. Channel B is showing the end of the world, has higher ratings, and can charge more money for product commercials to show the masses who will be too afraid to buy the stuff.

Seems it makes more sence, buy airtime on a channel with a positive note. Because the viewers of "Gloom & Doom" network will not be buying ****.

The tides will reverse, the marketing and advertizing companies will start to realize this, and everyone will start buying airtime on the channel A because nobody watching channel B buys anything. Eventually channel B will realize that while thier ratings are up, nobody is buying the products in thier commercials which lowers the value of thier airtime, so they start reporting positive comments on the economy and presto!

economy is fixed.
