Glad you brought that up. The scriptures tell us a day is like a thousand years in the eyes of God.
"But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness."
(Both references can be found in 2 Peter and Psalms.)
I said billions, I think if the scriptures were written today the wording would be billions, I don't think they could grasp a concept beyond thousands back then.

<quoted text>So what exactly does John 'Nobama' Galt suggest?
Galt suggests that economic growth is the only solution. Most agree with that, but disagree about how economic growth is achieved. A few think that ever higher taxation is the solution. That includes Obama and the Democrat Party.

Hey Homer, here's a picture of the "eye of a needle" in Biblical times to which you used to refer.

Maybe. But it's not really necessary to be so literal.

We get the idea with the word thousands.

How is tax increasing going to do anything? It will take away the lower and middle classes money, leaving them poorer. They are part of the economy too.

Well, I see their are several suitors interested in buying, so maybe they are rethinking the value in keeping the company going.

As for me, we grow & can my on vegetables, shop at a local fruit market & have my own bees. We buy organic when possible. No processed foods.
"Assurity"?

Home-canned foods are much more likely to be contaminated than commercially canned products.

Well duh John, economic growth will definitely ease the pressure on both taxes and spending, any real ideas on how to improve the economy? Should we consult Romney on his 12 million new jobs plan?

The point is that Obama, as President, has limited powers and has no right to demand anything.

The negotiation of any deal should be within the Congress, with Obama having the power to accept or reject the final compromise. When Obama states that certain elements are non-negotiable, he exceeds his power.
