    doesn't make the stats any less accurate.  As I have stated, I have read the methodology and it is quite sound.  You obviously have not.  You really need to stop looking for monsters in every closet and instead accept the FACT that the economy is improving and the recession is over.

    •  Your arrogance is showing. (0+ / 0-)

      I never said I'd looked over the methodology, and indeed I asked you about it in the expectation that you had.  I never said the economy is not improving.  I never said the recession is not over.  You are making those arguments up.

      What I DID do is simply ask you about the methodology, to see if it is as sound as you profess it is.  Sorry, I am not inclined just to take your word for it, as if it were inscribed by God on stone tablets for you to grace us with.  A sound methodology would be one that can withstand and even benefit from questioning.  Since you seem so protective of it, to the degree that you still have refused to answer my questions, maybe we should start challenging its soundness more.

        I have read the methodology.  I understand it and am confident that it works fine.  If you are unwilling to take my word for it (after apparently asking for my opinion), then go read it yourself, it is available online.
