when looking at any event the total of all parts needs to and should be considered. for any event there are always two parts, the action and the reaction. for example, concerning jobs, pink slips and foreclosures. the action was based on greed while the reaction was based on desire. the greed of some made use of the desire of others. as for govern-0-mites and their need for power prompting their rise to power we again see how action produced reaction. it was the need and the desire of the simpletons to be governed producing the opportunity for the corrupt to enslave the simpletons through the utilization of a desire on the part of the simpletons.
while guided by the principles of the logical mindset seeing is believing. first there must be understanding for there to be the seeing. those without understanding are relegated to the place of insignificance. theirs is the place of the simpleton who will always be used to the benefit of those who arrive at the understanding of and for first. in relation to the things of the universe one who understands cause and effect has the power to make use of the antecedent for their own benefit or desired outcome of the event.
keeping the simpletons confused off balance and unorganized has long been the desired method for making the best use of simpletons.

What *really* burns me about all this is that the guys making policy decisions' lifestyles won't be affected one bit by however much inflation they unleash.

What makes you think it is ever GONNA be paid back? Just like with a loan shark or payday loan storefront, the feds will just keep rolling it over. The Chinese and the House of Saud have little choice in loaning the money- if the US economy flat-out collapses, they lose their best customer. And if their house-of-cards economies collapse, the ruling classes over there will have to find deep holes to hide in.
Another few years of this, and we will have had a de facto 1 for 10 dollar devaluation in my lifetime.

By my reckoning, we've already had between 1:6 and 1:7 since the early sixties.

Per Jim:

Well, it's not just him - and I'm no economist.... but I'd say that his administration's trillion-plus deficit really will be affecting us for years and years to come.

More important: the federal debt went from 5.7 trillion to over 10.5 trillion.

Don't forget how the budget got to him. The Democratic controlled congress sent it over. He foolishly signed what they wanted.

If you expect a fast recovery from the current fiancial troubles you are living in dream land.
200,000 stores will close this year, and 3000 malls go bankrupt. We have twice the number of stores our country needs, and many years of home inventory
Recovery isnt going to be fast or complete:(

Or cheap.
When you are on borrowed money, you get to pay the interest along with the principal.
The United States is screwed for a long time.
Thanks George.

What I world like for 2009 is to get rid of all the little whiners, which would probably account for half the population.
Change is inevitable, get over it.

So you didnt check ratings on boxes before you went to your local store and got one, kinda dumb, you reviewed your computer, tv, car and wife. It just so happens NO boxes sold at local stores have good ratings, ratings are done by many like Cnet, Consumer Reports and are easy to joogle. Yes reception varies greatly, Quality of picture, ease of use, so go read ratings, buy another box, and enjoy.

I've seen no ratings that actually had anything to do with fringe reception issues such as sensitivity, S/N ratios, etc., etc., etc., ... All the ratings dealt with that I've seen were "ease of use" issues and some minor quality variations given an input signal. I looked and the ratings were worthless the standpoint of trying to determine which (if any) might be more satisfactory for those in areas where reception might be an issue.
So far, there's nobody here broadcasting digital in sufficient strength to get any reception whatsoever.
I've also been unable to ascertain from the broadcasters what their plans are for the translators we're currently using as for signal strength, conversion date(s), etc., ...
