    Oregano can be burned with a positive effect but sage is touchy.

    I have no idea why but Oregano makes me burp wildly

    Its probably all the tomato sauce and cheese you have wrapped around that oregano!! :lol:

    Grasshopper, Did Obama do that?

    The Commerce Department reported Friday that the economy grew 2.5%, on an annualized basis, in the 1st Quarter of the year. Economists had been expecting a stronger performance,
    The other factor driving the 2.5% growth was a big rise in business inventories. This “stocking the shelf” component added 1.03% points to the GDP growth. If consumer spending pulls back, however, it will take longer to clear this inventory buildup.

    The economy remains very weak. Numerous indicators over the past few weeks have pointed to a clear slowdown during March. The trend lines, especially the falling personal and disposable income suggest this slowdown will continue.

    In addition to the breaking news that the bombs was not set off by the bombers, the AP is now reporting

    *Boston Suspects’ Mom Was Also on Terror Watchlist, Sources Tell AP

    Will the REAL Media please step forward?

  • Coffee Steve

    @Its probably all the tomato sauce and cheese you have wrapped around that oregano!!


  • Doug Z

    The president admits, “I’m not a dictator,” in a reply to press about why he can’t make congress “do the right thing.” The president as do liberals forget that congress is owned and operated by Democrats, since 2007.

  • Ratboy

    And this is from CNBC!!!!

    Job Picture Looks Bleak for 2013 College Grads

    Even as new numbers show the overall employment picture improving—or at least not getting worse—new college graduates may not be so lucky when it comes to finding work.

    A survey released last week from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) reported that businesses plan to hire only 2.1 percent more college graduates from the class of 2013 than they did from the class of 2012.

    That’s way down from an earlier NACE projection of a 13 percent hiring rate for 2013 grads

    What a great economic degree you have, none

    Last year, the US paid $450 billion in interest with the 2-yr bond paying only 1/4 of 1% (.25%). That was about 25% of all individual income tax revenue, and about 20% of ALL revenue — just for INTEREST on the debt! What will happen with those interest costs when inflation rages and we have to raise interest rates to combat it? It will eat us alive!

    And with this GDP announcement, our debt-to-GDP is now 104.8% — far above the level that has resulted in calamities in history!

    In case Dung dung did not see this on the previous page

    “Right now, with money as cheap as it is, the deficit is not a drag at all,” said Albert “Pete” Kyle, a finance professor at the University of Maryland. “But if you look at what’s coming in the future, the potential drag that you see in the future is a really big problem.”

    This has everything to do with interest rates. With rates so low, it’s as if the government is floating trillions of dollars in debt on one of those zero percent credit-card offers in the mail. Those are great while they are at zero percent, but if you don’t pay the card off before the rate resets and shoots up, you can be in big trouble quickly.

    “That’s exactly the problem the federal government’s facing,” Kyle said. “So the big danger to the U.S. economy going forward is that interest rates go up.”

    @Coffee and @Apple: Being called deans is not so bad. At least I didn’t call you jerrys. “Ohhhhhhh LADY!!!!!”

  • Ratboy

    I think coffee is Dean jones and Apple is the Love Bug! :shock:

  • Coffee Steve

    “Ohhhhhhh LADY!!!!!”

    Some of my first memories of Movies are Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin movies


    If Apple is The Love Bug he would have a lot of gas :mrgreen:

    Debt-to-GDP: 105%…

    The end result: as of March 31, 2013, the US debt/GDP was 104.8%, up from 103% as of December 31, 2012 or a debt growth rate that would make the most insolvent Eurozone nation blush. There was a time when people were concerned about this unsustainable trajectory, but then there was an infamous excel error, and now nobody cares anymore.

  • Doug Z

    Now subtract $2 trillion from GDP for “imputation” and “redirection” and thats the real number …… or more like 120% debt to GDP.

    Left wing platform: hate God, love ab0.ration, adore Kermit gosnell, Islamic jihad terrorist, tax hard working Americans out the wazoo and spend spend spend
    The USA into bankruptcy

    I notice the price of Colt’s AR-15 6920 LE (Law enforcement edition) is selling for over $1700 on Gunbroker. That’s half a grand higher than it was going for pre-Sandy Hook.

    Guns are up. Ammo is up. Gold is up. Don’t know the price of Russian hookers but I suspect they’re up too.

    Let the good times roll…

    I get goosebumps of joy knowing that our DEBT is growing THREE TIMES faster than our economy!

    Economy? Who needs an economy! Who needs jobs? Who even needs reality? We have PRINTED prosperity now!
