"If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known, that we are at all times ready for war." -- George Washington, Fifth Annual Address to Congress, December 13, 1793

COMMENT:  Recession?  Definition - a decline in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for three or more consecutive quarters.  So far we haven't had even one month of a decline in the GDP.  Why all the talk about recession?  Think liberal media and politics.
