Dang, so sorry to set you guys off! So much negativity in the world today!
LOL if you mean me, I’m not feeling negative. No offense intended, and none taken.
I’m just pointing out the reality that we exist in an environment where the financial press, corporate accountants, and our representatives are happy to mislead the majority who are not financially well trained by the use of figures that are not adjusted for inflation or one-time events. That’s been going on for a long time.
Gives them the opportunity to brag on ever higher highs. Without delivery of actual improvement. On the rare occasion when you see articles written with the inclusion of inflation adjusted dollars you’ll know they might be trying to shine a light on reality.
I yield the soapbox now, and I hope this dash of cold water didn’t darken anyone’s day.
