People constantly ask me, don't you want the economy to recover? Why are you so negative all the time? It's not like we can all just radiate positive thoughts and the economy will miraculously improve. When you know it's their conscious intent to destroy our economy as part of a global government and economic consolidation scheme, to hope for a recovery is to indulge in pure fantasy. This is an issue of life and death, and there's no time for foolish indulgences. It is their intent to ruin us, so therefore ruin is what we must expect. And looking around, you see they're doing a damn good job of it.

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says he believes it's reasonable to expect "positive job growth" by spring and that people should have confidence about an improving economic climate.
In an interview broadcast on ABC's "Good Morning America," Geithner (GYT'-nur) also said he believes many banks around the country still have work ahead of them to regain the public's faith. He said, "They need to work very hard to shore it up" and said he wasn't certain that "all banks get it."
Geithner's stewardship of the Treasury has come in for criticism on occasion. He said Wednesday, "I think most people would say the economy actually is strengthening now going into the end of the year," but that the key is to regain lost jobs.
