You want evidence that the US economy is going to Hell?

Well, this is it. A Glut of crude! They cannot turn the Super Tankers back, but it is arriving faster than they can use it. This is clear evidence that economy has been wound down. If things were as good as Bush would have us believe this oil would still be getting burnt!

Alright, already. Is this an IDN forum or a U.S. bashing forum? Let's talk about things other than the "downfall" of America (again).

Give it up. Many members on here have, at one time or another, tried to get RD to stop polluting the forum with his insipid posts on the downfall of the US, every news story available about the growing Chinese economy, etc. to no avail.

Many veterans have expressed this sentiment here, only to be ignored, only to dissapear and quit participating. Dave has driven some great IDners away from this forum and feels no remorse about it.

Re: You want evidence that the US economy is going to Hell?

Actually I think it is in everyone's interest to understand what is happening in the World Economy. It has a great bearing on our IDN investments. I also think that it is of paramount importance that we understand how the American public is being lied to by its political leaders. Realising that Bush and Bernanke are talking complete rubbish will not benefit anyone that does not emerge from their trance for another couple of years or so. It has now got to the point where it is difficult to know which of the published statistics we can put any faith in. The economy is being talked up because they know that when everyone understands the truth, things will get really nasty. The real truth will not come out until after November. Until then you can expect to be fed on a diet of bullshit. That is how your wonderful democratic system works.

If you don't think the state of the US economy is going to have any effect on the Internet and domain names, I'd like to find out the drugs your on, and the name of the doctor who prescribed them please.

The U.S. economy is cyclical just as any fundamental system based on human involvement: is this not the case for the world economy as well? Take a look at the past 40 years, boon then bust, boon then bust…etc. Let me guess, back in ’99-’00 you were spewing the same rubbish about the U.S. economy. I guess, the world lived through that so what makes you think what is happening now is going to be any different. The U.S. will survive and so will the world economy. Besides, the last thing the world needs right now is a crumbling U.S. economy, how much humanitarian aid does the U.S. give (why don’t we compare this to China) out on a yearly basis, how much infrastructure has the U.S. added to the world, blah, blah, blah, I could go on and on, but I know this is falling on deaf ears, individuals such as yourself are only going to view the negative aspects of the U.S. And of course, I am not so naïve as to believe there are not negatives, however they are not to scale with your ideologies.

Bernanke and Bush are not lying to anyone (what rubbish are they saying, we all see the same economical reports, stats, figures, journals…ect), at least not anyone that knows a lick about anything. Bernanke is a puppet to Wall Street and Bush frankly doesn’t control anything, one of the caveats of our democratic system, the Pres can not act in solidarity.

R.D., regardless of your “anti” U.S. blathering, the fact remains the U.S. still controls the world economy, like it or not. Probably not forever but for the next 20-30 yrs, all depending on how China can handle their growth. It is no secret as to why China is growing. Hell, why pay a person in the U.S. $8.00 an hour when you can pay a Chinese $8.00 a week (if indeed they make $8.00 a week, nonetheless Chinese labor is a whole lot cheaper than U.S. labor, same goes for Mexico, India, Vietnam…etc). The Chinese are using industrial systems that were created and systematized by the British and then the U.S. What China is doing is not all that novel. They are doing it in the 21st century as opposed to the 18th and 19th century.

I would choose our democratic system any day over the debauchery that is communism or socialist communism or whatever name you call whatever China has going on. I don’t really know what the world economy or more importantly what the U.S. is doing has anything to do with IDN’s.

Give it a rest Duck.

Re: You want evidence that the US economy is going to Hell?

Dave you'll be hard-pressed to find someone who dislikes president Bush and the legacy his administration has built more than me. But that doesn't mean I want to constantly subject the other domainers to my opinions about him. That's just rude.

This is a forum about IDN, but you make us all put up with your incessant postings about all sorts of economic and political issues just because there's no sheriff in town, and because you seem to want to see this forum fail.

I think you're jealous of Craig and the success his forum has experienced as the de facto IDN forum.

I never said that. But I can't remember the last time one of these off-topic economic reports made any attempt to examine the connection between the two. Global warming affects domain name valuations too, but I'm not gonna spew daily reports about it on an IDN forum.

Chinese laborers and factory workers at the lower end make around .25 cents per hour, or $10 for a 40 hour weeks work.

The US has been overdue for a recession for a while. Dave and Touchring have been posting about an impending US recession
here since early 2006. Lately Dave has been slamming on this topic with almost daily posts which are irritating many here. No
doubt eventually a recession will happen and late this year is looking ripe to be that time. I think most here agree that we
would rather see everyone's energy put into posts related to IDNs, Search, SEO, Development, etc. which is why we all come
here in the first place.

You can find articles about the economy failing for every country in the world. Substitute any country for "British" and find
an article related to it on the internet. Here is an article written for Britain's economic woes.

IS BRITISH ECONOMY HEADING FOR "THE PERFECT STORM"?

Re: You want evidence that the US economy is going to Hell?

No, I am not jealous of Craig. I am bloody annoyed with him. He asked me to build up this forum at the outset by posting IDN information. I did that in the trust that he would do something useful with it. I feel very betrayed and let down, and trust me I am not the only to have felt like that about Craig.

Let me make this abundantly clear once again to all of you who are too thick to understand. I do not regard forums as a financial investment. I regard them as a community resource. I feel the way that Craig has left Seamo dangling in this way is a total disgrace, and he is very lucky to have somebody who has been that loyal after being kept in the dark like a bloody mushroom for so long.
