Weak exports, imports signal tepid economic growth

It appears the 13 in 2013 is, for the superstitious, a harbinger of a very lousy economic year to come — perhaps a whopper start to the second leg of the recession.

EVERY economist on the books has been predicting the upcoming recession. I think it actually started about 3 months ago. As soon as obamacare and the other taxes kick in (to avoid the cliff raise taxes if not raise taxes) it will go full swing. If the House refuses to raise the debt ceiling, as they should, by March we will be in a full scale depression. With our weakened military, inflation on the basics (food, clothing, shelter, energy, transportation) soaring, the economy in the toilet, absolutely NO cohesion among our citizens…perhaps the Mayans were a year off. Sounds like some paranoid doomsday movie right? Well compare the details with what is in the news……..
