Republicans abandoning Romney over 'gifts' remark
Former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, who made several memorable comments of his own on the campaign trail, deemed Romney’s remark “nuts.”
“I think it’s nuts. I mean, first of all, it’s insulting. The job of a political leader in part is to understand the people,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.”“If we can’t offer a better future that is believable to more people, we’re not going to win.”
And South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” tied Romney’s remarks to a Republican “death spiral.”

See instead of a death spiral what they need is a Death Star like in Star Wars, then they could effectively rule their empire, plus it'd be pretty cool science fictionally speaking of course.

That's true. Thank you.

Didn't say they weren't capable. Just not too many do.

Barack Obama is not King, Emperor, Dictator, Potentate, or even Prime Minister.
Did I say he was King, Emperor, Dictator, Potentate, or even Prime Minister? The only people saying that are rightwing morons and Fox News.

Carol, you have a very narrow view of things. Mankind has had these ups and downs for thousands of years, beside Homer blames the 1980's when Reagan perpetuated, fueled and nurtued the global takeover by the corporations.

<quoted text>They will strike a deal because both cutting spending and raising taxes at this point would be bad for the economy. Nobody wants to hurt the economy, well maybe the Republicans up for re-election in the next election.
Ideally in better economic times I think they should cut spending across the board, including PBS, the arts and including the military - meaning more of a reduced presence around the world not necessarily arms/new technology because reducing spending there will also have a negative effect on the economy, and basically just putting an end to the Bush tax cuts. We have to pay for these unfunded wars.
Explain to me how we can cut taxes and go to war?
Any "deal" will mean maintaining the status quo, with the possible exception of raising taxes on the wealthy, a meaningless gesture. Clearly, the status quo is not working.

You say that the wars are unfunded, but the reality is that all government spending is partially "unfunded." It is unrealistic to say that some government operations are fully funded and others are unfunded.

The issue in government finance is revenue generation, regardless of tax rates. With current anemic economic growth, it is impossible to generate enough revenue to cover expenses.

The government is currently spending twice as much as it takes in through taxes. What is your solution?

Whoa, that's the first time I've seen pestilence spelled correctly on this thread, nice going on that.

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.

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.
