Buy it Now: A Clue

Admittedly, Waingroh doesn't know the ins and outs of Economics, and always thought it was the most boring subject in school next to Advanced Quantum Astrophysics (String Theory? yawn). But even Waingroh can smell the BS that is pouring out of Dick Cheney's mouth when it comes to the economy. He would be laughed out of any high school Economics class with his latest comment:
Indicators measure the nation's unemployment rate, consumer spending and other economic milestones, but Vice President Dick Cheney says they miss the hundreds of thousands who make money selling on eBay.

"That's a source that didn't even exist 10 years ago,'' Cheney told an audience in Cincinnati on Thursday. ``Four hundred thousand people make some money trading on eBay."

At least Edwards was quick to jump on the ball this time:
Democratic vice presidential candidate John Edwards responded that Cheney's comments show how ``out of touch'' he and President Bush are with the economy.

``If we only included bake sales and how much money kids make at lemonade stands, this economy would really be cooking,'' Edwards said in a statement.

Well, there's only one way to test out Dickie Boy's theory. Buy as many of these as you can.
