It was here that the ramp was perfectly explained, because while the bad (for stocks of course) data was that individual Foodstamps recipients rose by 170K in March - if just a whisker below all-time highs - it was the number of American households on foodstamps, which rose to a new all-time high of 23,116,441 (each collecting an average of $274.30 per month) that perfectly explained the Dow Jones' 200 point surge higher: the transfer of wealth to the poor and middle-classes from the 1% continues without a hiccup.
The fundamental transformation we were promised is working. This is the good news to the Regime and the leader of the Marxist/Progressives. This is the good news to the followers of this philosophy, for they believe with this destruction of real economic growth they are bringing forth their fair and just classless society. The true news is that these numbers are not lying. The fallacy is that what the Marxist/Progressives see as success has always led to the downfall of the total society and a totalitarian state has been the result.
