still clueless no matter what the name.
It is a standard talking point of Republicans and deficit hawks of all political stripes that federal spending is out of control; that major surgery is needed, especially on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, to get the budget on a sustainable course.
In fact, our long-term deficit situation is not nearly as severe as even many budget experts believe. The problem is that they are looking at recent history and near-term projections that are overly impacted by one-time factors related to the economic crisis and massive Republican tax cuts that lowered revenues far below normal.
Taking a longer-term view, such as that in a recent Treasury Department report, shows that our longer-term fiscal problem is in fact quite manageable.

so tell us....when was the last time BillO had a real economist on his show?
Phil Gramm, former US senator and architect of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (1999) was an economist.

Good thing for him that he rolled sevens eh? Imagine ole Phil making the political talk show rounds.

As movement conservatives start to sour on Christie, it might be instructive to recall what it was about him that many of them liked from 2009 through last year. For the most part, it wasn’t the content of his agenda, in which most of his admirers had little interest. It was Christie’s willingness to be combative and confrontational that won their admiration. When this was all that most movement conservatives knew about him, Christie’s future in the party seemed very bright, and his name was frequently listed along with such movement conservative heroes as Rubio and Ryan.

so he was fine until he started acting like he had some sense.
not a characteristic that plays well with the FOXbot crowd.
All was fine until Christie stopped being combative and confrontational and kissed Obama in public just before the election.

Christie still has a possibility of turning this around.

The stock market bound back in spite of Boeing's problems that will surely fk up the GDP and durable goods orders for a month or two.

The company, still plagued with electrical difficulties on the otherwise fabulous Dreamliner received only two orders this month.

When you take from those who work and give to those who wouldn't, the democracy," or in our case the republic, "ceases to exist."
First, are you saying welfare is the death of democracy? We better be on guard against the Salvation Army, then.

Second, I can argue the corollary. When society reaches a point where the ultra-rich control most of the wealth, democracy ceases to exist in that fashion.
To a communist-minded diehard believer, I’d like to ask just when you think the Cuban and North Korean states are going to flower into social-anarchist models of economic and social equality.
Better ask someone who is a communist diehard believer, then.
Not only is it a sick joke to suppose that such governments will ever evolve into even this shortsighted morass of inanity, but that anarchism itself will ever manifest according to such a model.
It happened in Russia under Gorbachev and Yeltsin. And it may come back one day. None of us can predict how these things play out over time. I might add, Nicaragua is socialist and vastly more free than it was under its U.S.-fostered dictator, Anastosio Somoza.
Since free or freed markets are the only ones consistent with the absence of political government, it follows that socialism could never endure on any large, lasting scale, absent an oppressive government bootheel [sic] to keep it hobbling along by armed force.
Are you seriously suggesting the U.S. government, the Republicans in particular, do not exert any ifluence over U.S. markets? Such an argument is belied by the $4 billion in federal subsidies given to the oil companies. Not to mention agricultural subsidies.

There are numerous socialist regimes going strong. Examples include China, Vietnam, Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua. I will further add there are many shades of socialism, from the totalitarian one of China, to the democratic socialism of Nicaragua.
Such is the case now. And so, we can fully expect, will it ever be in the future. Human nature, and human desire, operates along quite different lines.It is more than instructive to take note of even a percentage of what is contained in Marx’s infamous 1848 Manifesto of the Communist Party: Abolition of all private land ownership, and rights of inheritance. Government monopolization of all transportation, communications, and educational systems.
Again, the model above is not fully accurate. That is the totalitarian model. Not all socialist governments follow it.

How about the rightwing dictatorships the CIA fostered in Latin America for decades? These countries were ruled by rich families who controlled nearly all the wealth. They used the police and military to savagely opppress all political parties but their own. So please don't try to hang the repression label on socialists alone.
