Recession !! Recession !!! They shout from the peanut gallery.
Where have you idiots been ?
Yes we've just shown two quarters of negative economic growth LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD except later (beause of our sound banking and fiscal policy). Recessions are a freaking natural part of the economic cycle. Let's put things into perspective by taking a look at the worlds largest economy an its cycle of recessions.
Now first note that those listed are only the ones thought to have effected the American economy. There were plenty more. Secondly you'll notice the states has unergone 3 more "bad" , not less recessions than we have in the past 17 years (this being our first in 17 years). You might also want to take a look at the latest one. The states has been in technical recession for more than twice as long as we have. Also the causes are stated as :
The collapse of the housing market led to bank collapses in the US and Europe, causing the amount of available credit to be sharply curtailed, resulting in massive liquidity and solvency crises. In addition, high oil prices, stock markets crashed worldwide, and a banking collapse took place in the United States.
So any of you getting excited thinking this recession reflects the poor health of our own economy rather than corporate and banking greed in the States....well.....shut up.
No , the world is not ending you idiots ! Get out there an spend your money on all the bargains the big chain retailers are being forced to throw at us and stop being such neurotic twats.
Actually the irony here is that when, as predicted by almost al economist , the economy recovers there is going to be a pretty good case for the A.N.C to act as if they solved the "crisis". So it's in their benefit for you to all panic. It only makes them look better when the soon to come recovery happens.
Now I've been getting a lot of ridiculous and obviously false an misleading comments lately I'm refusing to publish. But this beauty I couldn't resist :
According to this expat gentlemen he's shocked at the level of violence on durban beaches. Without providing link he starts to rattle off some numbers.
3 murders a day
1722 Armed assaults in December alone
111 gun shots
This is blatantly absurd to anyone who has even been to Durban. I happened to be in Durban in december and I can assure you with over 40 people supposively being assaulted with weapons on the beach alone every day I think I might have noticed. Not to mention the 111 gun shot victims. You'd think someone I know of the many many people who I know who live in Durban might have just one got a glimpse of this sort of thing going on...but nope. They find these numbers laughable and went so far to call the guy a "whacko".
I concur. You sir are either a liar or I propose certifiably insane. No such ridiulous lies, insane ramblings and distortions will be posted on my site.
