|The only arrogant one is you, who refuses to read an article if it comes from the "wrong" person. You only read news when you think it's from the "right" person, which means you intentionally bias yourself. That is arrogance, to presume you and only you know who is right and wrong.|
It's a much better presumption to read from both right and left like I do, then you can arrive at the truth, because when both left and right are saying much the same thing, then there's a higher probability they aren't trying to snow you with propaganda.
Meanwhile, the economy is NOT doing well and Bernanke and Obama's economic policies are simply failing. Sugar highs were never a prescription for long term success, but in your heart of hearts you know that. There is never a free lunch, but you just don't want to admit that because you'd rather there be no pain. It's human nature to deny the hard things. It's very similar to why the GOP denies Climate Change. They don't want to admit it, because to admit it, means a shift to different energy sources from the ones their constituency makes a ton of money off of. It's all intentional bias.
Here's how your recovery is doing. Is ADP now also going to be on your "DO NOT READ" list, since they just posted some awful employment numbers that missed all expectations and showed declines?
