Modest US Growth in 2013, Housing Recovery to Continue: NABE

We.are.being.played | Dec 17, 2012 09:10 AM ET Well - you may be calling for sunny weather - BUT - I don`t buy it (literally). Given the large Sheeple population, that are breeding with the Lemmings, I`m sure a lot of people are swallowing the BS.
