But it is very true, unless you just want to ignore the facts, that is.<quoted text>
Most of what you write is sarcasm and not to be taken seriously. But, thanks for finally admitting that which we already knew.

He's never seen a fact he understood, never seen a fact whereby he tries to distort.
But he does have parts and parts.

Cheating Our Children
By PAUL KRUGMAN
Published: March 28, 2013
So, about that fiscal crisis — the one that would, any day now, turn us into Greece. Greece, I tell you: Never mind.
Over the past few weeks, there has been a remarkable change of position among the deficit scolds who have dominated economic policy debate for more than three years. It’s as if someone sent out a memo saying that the Chicken Little act, with its repeated warnings of a U.S. debt crisis that keeps not happening, has outlived its usefulness. Suddenly, the argument has changed: It’s not about the crisis next month; it’s about the long run, about not cheating our children. The deficit, we’re told, is really a moral issue.
There’s just one problem: The new argument is as bad as the old one. Yes, we are cheating our children, but the deficit has nothing to do with it.
...Yet there is, as I said, a lot of truth to the charge that we’re cheating our children. How? By neglecting public investment and failing to provide jobs.
You don’t have to be a civil engineer to realize that America needs more and better infrastructure, but the latest “report card” from the American Society of Civil Engineers — with its tally of deficient dams, bridges, and more, and its overall grade of D+— still makes startling and depressing reading. And right now — with vast numbers of unemployed construction workers and vast amounts of cash sitting idle — would be a great time to rebuild our infrastructure. Yet public investment has actually plunged since the slump began.
Or what about investing in our young? We’re cutting back there, too, having laid off hundreds of thousands of schoolteachers and slashed the aid that used to make college affordable for children of less-affluent families.
...And why are we shortchanging the future so dramatically and inexcusably? Blame the deficit scolds, who weep crocodile tears over the supposed burden of debt on the next generation, but whose constant inveighing against the risks of government borrowing, by undercutting political support for public investment and job creation, has done far more to cheat our children than deficits ever did.
Fiscal policy is, indeed, a moral issue, and we should be ashamed of what we’re doing to the next generation’s economic prospects. But our sin involves investing too little, not borrowing too much — and the deficit scolds, for all their claims to have our children’s interests at heart, are actually the bad guys in this story.

It is intereting how a Pulitzer winning columnist can be incredibly stupid too.
Paul Krugman is a bonafide laugh riot.

Perhaps you could share with us some links to your published articles on economics, or you could list the qualifications that would make your in-depth rebuttal worthy of consideration.

Another Paul Krugman product.
Krugman's Cyprus Solution: Seize Property and Print Money
In answer to the "What would you do about Cyprus if you were dictator?" question, Paul Krugman has shared his Nobel-level of economic intelligence with the rest of us, and it comes down to two actions: the Cyprus government should seize as much private property as it can, go off the euro and print its own currency, lots of it. Krugman writes:

Yes that sentiment came from this source (03-27-2013)...
And here's the link to Krugman's original article (03/26/2013)...
And here's another review of the situation (03/28/2013)...
So take your pick on who and what you want to beleive, and how you want it portrayed.

Why would we believe Krugman when he has been proven to have consistently and accurately predicted the economic trends for the past 15 years.
Every time Right Wing economists predicted massive inflation and high interest rates, I assume they're wrong - they always are- and benefited very well from understanding Right Wingers have no clue how economies work.
Instead I followed Krugman, and so far, he has never led me wrong in investment decisions.
But, hey, let the Right Wingers keep believing their "experts", who have been consistently wrong - while we informed consumers and investors make money knowing they're always wrong.
Better yet, let's just enjoy the humor of hearing how Reagan and Bush were good for America.
An America where since Reagan took office the average worker has doubled his productivity - profits have exploded through the roof, and the workers creating that productivity and profits been penalized by having their wages cut.
That's always good for a laugh.

Boring like a broken record!
#52 Mar 30, 2013
Scientists are studying what went wrong with the emotional and intellectual development of Right Wingers.
Whenever confronted with the need to attend to, and incorporate data and facts into analysis - they reflexively shy away claiming they are "bored".
Similar conduct has been observed in pre-pubescent males, but usually the condition improves with normal maturation.
#53 Mar 30, 2013
Boring, your mastabation has not helped you at all.
#54 Mar 30, 2013
I have gave that up for the intellectual stimulation of disproving Right Wing lies and myths, and pointing out their love of ignorance.
It's fun, easy, and I can do it with my iPhone and Google, while watching "Night of the Living Dead" with my kids, and eating chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.
But hey, I'm not judging you, you go ahead and enjoy whatever makes you happy.

so your free iphone from the government has replaced your tallywacker. What a Bore.

But you've told us you are gay; or love gays, or have gay boyfriends, or work and play with gays, or support gays.
Or have you changed your mind and gone back into that closet?
or was that the mop room?
We get so many stories from you, so many changes from you, you're for something, you're against something, you're progressive, you're liberal, you're moderate, you're the Easter bunny in pink.
I think the pink rabbit suit tells us all we need to know.

Now, now, don't turn all homophobic on us, if your obsession with my sexual parts is part of your "exploring" process, that is nothing to be ashamed of, or embarrassed about.
We won't judge you for a little experimentation.
I guess it could just be the typical Right Wing response when the facts make Right Wing statements obviously ludicrous and childishly easy to debunk.(pun intended).
Why, I too have sinned. When, at college, I enjoyed the dreaded "weed" many nights, and found it helpful in social situations with the ladies.
Had to give it up for bourbon though, even though bourbon gave me hangovers, and the drunks around me got violent, while the smokers simply got mellow.
But, back to you most recent attempt to deflect attention from the Right Wing's inability to counter factually supported arguments by personal attacks on my sexual proclivity.
I have several gay and lesbian friends, and the only issue I've had is when a very attractive lady is gay, that's a loss for us straight guys. On the positive side, whenever a guy is gay, he takes two competitors out of the race we straight guys run,(or ran, if you're married).
Additionally, I've never had a gay or lesbian client try to cheat me, while experience has taught that whenever a client shows up wearing a cross outside their shirt, or carrying a Bible, it's time to lock your wallet in the safe.
So here's to gay guys !
May you multiply and continue to improve the marketability of the males in my family and among my friends.
Now you lesbian gals, please, for the straight guys still out there looking, consider "Bi". It doubles your opportunity for success and leaves hope for the straight guys.
Hey, by the way, I hope you all had a Happy Easter.

From most of your previous postings it sounds like you might have experimented with a little harder stuff than just alcohol and weed!

Typical libtard thinking whereby gays can multiply from a gay affair.
But we understand; you also think by wasting trillions you can make America stronger.
We understand it's a defect that cannot be overcome by singing "we shall overcome."
In addition be sure and let your kids have free access to your gay friends, wouldn't want them to NOT experience their lifestyle, they may even become one.
It's called the multiplier effect.

He does seem to become incoherent and repetitive on most posts. Originality is NOT his strong point.
