1st Quarter GDP shrinks

Thanks Joe!!!

I’m sure the revisions in 2 months will be in his favor…. But my god what a disaster this guy is.

Real gross domestic product (GDP) decreased at an annual rate of 1.4 percent in the first quarter of 2022 (table 1), according to the “advance” estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the fourth quarter, real GDP increased 6.9 percent.

The GDP estimate released today is based on source data that are incomplete or subject to further revision by the source agency … The “second” estimate for the first quarter, based on more complete data, will be released on May 26, 2022.

Good story. :joy:

Here’s a bit from the head of Frost Bank

From Business Insider, notice the bottom one…that’s Trump

Don’t worry, Warden. GSC NEVER puts stock in polls and estimates…

unless those polls and estimates agree with him.

Nope- not even the ones that favor my position. I only do that because you guys demand something. I still think they’re all shit.

Except when you start new threads using them as “proof” for what a disaster Joe Biden is.

But keep trying to wriggle out of this paradox. It’s an especially amusing one.

Would you rather I start a thread just claiming he’s a disaster? I mean- probably just as valid?

Anyway- you know my stance on polls but you pretend not to. There’s a deviation from the true numbers based on the sampling and methodology. So there’s some value but you have to dig in to eliminate the noise.

I’d rather you didn’t start with a conclusion and then afterwards try to scrounge up supporting evidence.

But stop trying to dodge the issue. If someone you disagree with brings out a poll or an estimate, you will be the first to slam it. All I’m asking from you is a little less hypocrisy and a little more consistency.

Fucking owned.

Ok- only after you stop pretending to be a moderate only to only always take the liberal position on every conceivable topic.


He should say no

He is a moderate and well balanced at that

Question: Was I or was I not arguing against DJ a day or two ago because I supported the example the Florida DOE gave for excluding that textbook?

If you have an honest bone in your body, you’ll retract saying I “only always take the liberal position on every conceivable topic.”

Such a cheerleader

Oh dude. That’s like a mlb player saying they got a hit last week but whiffed 10 games in a row. Your batting average is .090909

So only always every time is automatically wrong.

And there are tons of other issues the liberals on this board would hate me over. I don’t think Zimmerman did anything wrong. Same with that Wisconsin kid. I don’t think think a male->female trans person should play in female sports. I agreed with Trump on the China tariffs. I actually appreciated some moves on immigration, though think he went too far in places. Etc.

Anyone who is intellectually honest can see that I’m not even close to walking in lockstep with CNN.

For some reason it makes you feel better to declare me an uber liberal. It’s just another cospiracy fantasy you spin in your head in a lame-duck attempt to make sense of the world.

Except it would be a better use of whatever intelligence you have to actually pay attention to the truth.
