So, um, what? Is somebody out where you are killin' the retards? what the hell ARE you talkin' about? I was talkin' about the corrupting effects of money and you're off now on retarded babies? How the hell do you intend to carry on a conversation with other people when you go marchin' off in your own direction right in the middle? This is not an abortion or a retard thread. Those threads are out there, go find one.

Now you folks don't want me constantly lookin' over your shoulders do you? Pick a goddam subject and then argue it and then come to an agreement about a solution or a set of solutions. It's pretty simple IF YOU STICK TO THE SUBJECT MATTER! What's the point of just typing snarky response to each other, endlessly?

You have no facts sitting on a wise man's knee and none that speak for themselves.

You are the Hunchback of Copied Crap pasting whatever you think happens to look like a Liberal fact.

Fact: in some areas, home prices have jumped upwards by 20% in 6 month's time. To Liberal children, this means the Boy Messiah rules the economy with the wisdom of Solomon.

Fact: the Fed is keeping interest rates artificially low and, along with other Bunny Fwank-Style smoke and mirrors, is driving another real estate bubble to appear.

Fact: markets need corrections. Otherwise, bubbles can occur. The Boy Messiah doesn't want any corrections to take place anywhere in the markets because he wants the government to become the ONLY market corrector.

Your facts are laid out like a few fresh cherries sitting atop a huge mound of rotten ones. Go pick your cherries, boy, but leave the real harvest to professionals and adults.

talk is cheap.

and that's all you're doing.

you know, after a while it becomes plainly obvious that some people who are so committed to never admitting that anything Obama does is good for this country have reasons beyond the facts.

so why don't you tell us what the real reasons are? or are you too much of a coward to admit the truth because if you do it will diminish anything you have to say about him? and why would that be?

because people have no respect for those who hate for no other reason than because of who someone is. tis why we have hate crime laws; laws that people like you despise: and for good reason.

Why Government Spending Is Not Out of Control

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.

As the chart below illustrates, federal spending ballooned in fiscal year 2009 mainly because of what economists call “automatic stabilizers”– programs already in law such as unemployment compensation that rises whenever a recession occurs. Spending rose from 20.7 percent of the gross domestic product in fiscal year 2008 to 25 percent in 2009.

Republicans would have us believe that all of this resulted from Barack Obama’s policies, but this is simply a partisan lie. Fiscal year 2009 actually began on September 1, 2008, and was based on the budget that George W. Bush submitted in January 2008.

Moreover, if we look at projections from the Congressional Budget Office on January 7, 2009 – while Bush was still in office and which do not incorporate any Obama policies – we see that the deficit was projected to rise from $455 billion in 2008 to $1.2 trillion in 2009 under existing law.

The actual deficit for fiscal year 2009 was $1.55 trillion. But the difference was due entirely to lower revenues than expected, not higher spending. Outlays in fiscal year 2009 actually came in below CBO’s projection –$3,518 billion actual vs. a projection of $3,543 billion.

The point is not to assess blame for the deficit; only to emphasize the temporary nature of the historically large deficits of the last few years and show that they did not result from an explosion of new spending initiated by Obama. This is important because Republicans continually make that claim, thus justifying their belief that spending must be massively slashed, especially for entitlements.

he's no faux economist, but you nutjobs know that. that's why whenever i post something from one of the men who helped write the book on supply side economics all i get are personal attacks.

a reminder....

Bruce Reeves Bartlett (b. October 11, 1951, in Ann Arbor, Michigan) is an American historian whose area of expertise is supply-side economics. He served as a domestic policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan and as a Treasury official under President George H. W. Bush.

Bartlett has written several books and magazine articles critical of the George W. Bush Administration, whose economic policies he believes significantly depart from traditional conservative principles.

In 2006, he published Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy (ISBN 0-385-51827-7), which is critical of the Bush Administration's economic policies as departing from traditional conservative principles. He compared the second Bush to Richard M. Nixon as "two superficially conservative presidents who enacted liberal programs to buy votes for reelection.
