69% of Americans polled, believe recession is near.

How is your household faring financially, in light of the coming recession?

Hell, if 69% of Americans polled say it is coming, it must be true.

We're buying Canadian Dollars by the bucket. Next Spring, we should be able to exchange them back to U.S. Dollars, and buy a new Benz.

Would this be the same people who said we have been in a recession since Bush took office?

What does "coming recession" mean? When does it start? How will you know? What defines it? Do you know what a recession is?

As far as I can tell we have been in a recession for some years now. I don't know what the legal definition of one is though. Whatever it is it isn't adequate.

So 69 percent were polled? How many believe a recession is near?

What a stoopid f'in premise - let's poll a few thousand unqualified, uneducated, totally clueless people, and whatever they say must be true!

I wonder what they'd have said about Benz owners. Whatever they would have said must be true too!

Can even 20% of the population even describe a recession?

Whatever happened with facts? Do they no longer matter? Jeesh.

You didn't even post where the "Poll" could be found.

69% of Americans polled, this thread is incredibly stupid.

51% of those polled, thought that polls were people from someplace in Europe.

I liked the poll on banning DHMO (dihydrogen Monoxide)

You can read about this killer stuff here http://www.dhmo.org/facts.html

They went out and collected thousands of signatures in a petition to ban the stuff, but the government would not budge! That damn Bush got in the way again! This stuff is the largest contributor to global warming for cripes sake!
