    Would you characterize the current state of the U.S. economy as "uncertain"? The unemployment rate is going down, oil prices are decreasing, and the stock market is setting new highs on an almost weekly basis.

    So here's NBC News' headline about Black Friday:

    Black Friday Arrives Amid Economic Uncertainty

    But if you read the story there are only 3 sentences related to the headline and they are all about the so-called income gap. Otherwise the story is a rather upbeat assessment of Black Friday, including the phenomenon that it is spreading overseas.

    I would say it is quite uncertain, with Obamacare's premiums about to take a hike, and the new congress coming in with rumors of defunding this and that. An improving economy isn't automatically a stable one.

    Cnn says economy has recovered, so go out and shop

    According to a corporate poll, “52 percent of Americans said things are going well, while 48 percent said things are going badly — but it’s the most positive appraisal of the state of the nation that the poll has found since January of 2007.”

    The buoyant poll reflects government propaganda. “The economy has improved significantly. There’s no doubt about it,” Obama said on November 9. “We had a jobs report for October that showed that once again over 200,000 jobs created. We’ve now created more than 10 million. The unemployment rate’s come down faster than we could have anticipated.”

    The government, of course, leans heavily on its official U3 statistics and ignores the so-called U6, a calculation including not only people out of work and looking for full-time employment, but also adds “marginally attached workers and those working part-time for economic reasons.” When the U6 is factored in, the picture is not as rosy as Obama and the government would have you believe.

    Government also bases its staged ebullience on the stock market which is, as Wim Grommen characterized it, a “beautiful tree in the desert.”

    The brief period of supposed stability lauded by the government is primarily smoke and mirrors. “Unfortunately, this brief period of stability that we have been enjoying is just an illusion,” writes Michael Snyder. “The fundamental problems that caused the financial crisis of 2008 have not been fixed. In fact, most of our long-term economic problems have gotten even worse.”

    The optimism expressed in the CNN poll is not shared by the task managers of the financial elite, for instance UK boss David Cameron who said that “red warning lights are flashing on the dashboard of the global economy” in the same way as they did when the subprime financial bubble crash bowed the globalist economy six years ago.

    I am surprised that certain people (Sharpton, et al.) have not denounced the use of the term "Black Friday".
