Follow up question of the day. Can the most indebted entity ever known to exist, continue to borrow at historic levels and survive?

Please allow me to re state. Can conservative borrowing practices result in bankruptcy? Can conservative lending practices result in bankruptcy (for the borrower, for those of you in Alamogordo)?

Your money is sent to any cause the top considers in their interest - not their interest in the

Give us a break - you know unions are libtard

If you have to belong to a union you are a loser!
Look at Detroit to find out what unions do?

One fact that typically stands is simply throwing money at things never solves the problem and when people have no skin in the game thing will not work.
Even though I have a degree I started working for my dad's business at 10 years old and never stopped work. My dad did not have a college degree but is one of the smartest men I know as he built and ran many businesses through the years and never did it with hand outs.
Having said that I believe one thing that does make our country great is the fact people can have different opinions and speak them. Many on both sides (hard core conservatives and hard core liberals) believe that if you disagree with them them you do not love the US (Conservative view) or you are a racist/sexist (liberal view). The real place we need to be is in the middle. The path the US is going down will be our downfall if many do not figure this one out.
As a side bar I do not design the rocket motors but I do design the systems that support them and test them. That is not an easy task in itself. I also help the customers resolve problems with their systems and motors. One of many different things I have done in my lifetime of work.
I think we are in agreement about a lot of things. Yes, it is wonderful to live where we can speak our thoughts. As for liberal vs conservative, republicat vs democran and the like. I think those are stupid labels that people have embraced. You really have to be a moron to simply take on a label that sings a party song of which there's no way that it's members will all agree to.

I say all of the labels and parties suck. If people had any sense of intelligence, they'd move to fire all politiicans and change election laws to 1 term per political office. These clowns make careers of public service. Why? There is money in skimming from the people and making crooked deals.

We need "The People's Party", led by a person who doesn't get paid to BS the people and holds a real job that pays him/her a salary. The "Public Service" needs to be free of charge. Notice that people with money are getting into politics and coming out richer than they were. Is there not something funny with that? TPP is not The Teabagger's Party. You cannot be too extreme. The rich can only remain rich if the poor work to make them money and the middleclass buys their products. The 3 classes cannot exist if they refuse to support one another. I'll use an example. I am against Obamacare. Why should I pay for the healthcare of the poor? I'm rich or middleclass. Just to be a little mean, I say "f@@@ the poor, if they don't have money, they can just die". In short time, we have a lot of sick poor people, another plague comes along (all the money in the world won't save me then), there all of a sudden is a shortage of cheap labor, the rich man starts losing money, the middleclass doesn't buy anything, the cycle begins and we start looking at bleek times. Common sense must always prevail. I don't believe in handouts, but I do believe in helping the elderly. I don't believe in social securoty, we should do away with it. No from here forward deals. Just get rid of it. Iif you are under 60 and u can walk, you work. No disabled 20 year olds who claim pain that no one can see.

On your sidebar. I didn't figure that you were a rocket scientist. I suppose I didn't care much for the "well ... I've just got an engineering degree"... Intelligence and degrees can go hand in hand, but are not absolutely correlated. Congratulations on your engineering degree. Are you doing what you thought you'd be doing when you went to engineering school? Humility is an important trait.

How much intelligence does it take to be a cop? Go to work. Get in patrol car. Drive around all day. Waste gas. Stop people for minor traffic violations. Sit under bridges, off/on-ramps, behind bushes over hills illuminating people with radar. Giving tickets. Yeah, that's a real winner's job. If you are a cop, you were a hall monitor in high school. If cops are out doing good things like: helping people who are stranded on the road, capturing criminals, keeping traffic flowing, great. Lately, it's been, "how many tickets a month can we give". That is a loser's mentality. How often do they give warnings? It's more valuable to stop someone, give them a lecture and then a warning. When the cop comes over and says, "license and registration". Hold the f@##-on a minute. Why are yous topping me? Did you say "hello, how are you today"? Common courtesy goes a long way. When the cop takes the attitude of "license and registration". Well, that's where people have good things to say to them.

Look at the US govt.

10 yrs ago. Debt 5-6T. Interest 200B
Today. Debt 16T+ interest 400B
In 5-10 yrs. Debt 32T+ Interest 500B

So, apparently you can live on credit for a long time and we will continue to do it as long as interest rates are low. Borrowing money is cheap.

When borrowing is cheap we live on borrowed money. The problem comes when interest rates go to 10-20 percent, then you are growing the debe by big numbers.

Conservative borrowing can only result in bankruptcy if you are being untrue to yourself.

This is not a liberal or conservative set of principles. Boh sides are responsible for the 16T. Both sides have benefited. As long as interest rates are low. It makes complete sense. Why would you say that this was the liberals? You think that only democrats and liberals spent this money? Really? Where do you live, under a rock?
