Do you see how you just ignored the actual circumstances
The morality or necessity of WW2 has no impact on the economics. Please try to stay on subject.

in the real world to justify an ideological position that has no basis in reality?
The reality is the economics that led to the post war boom. Five years of producing products with no commercial value and the economy that had been stalled for DECADES was suddently booming. This is not logical in the 'blame game''zero sum' reasoning of conservatives trying to hoard their own assets.

The morality or necessity of WW2 was reality; you ignored that to try to make a point about how you disagreed with the economics of WWII, in response to my statement that you often ignore the reality when supporting environmental policy no less.

Again, try facing reality. Policies have real consequences, if you ignore them, you pay the price, no matter how good or bad you intensions are!

Another thing about teabaggers: no matter what the subject, they will somehow turn it into World War Two.

Those were the good old days, you know.

I would not call LessHypeMoreFact a teabagger for bringing up WWI in post 43, even he were an American. If he were, he would more of a donkey f-cker like you.

Eloquent.

YouHelp, now that you're out of the closet, you're sounding more like a teabagger by the minute.

About as ludicrous as the 'trickle down' theory where you feed money to the rich by stealing from the poor? Or the ludicrous thought that making trillions of dollars in death dealing weaponry for a totally wasteful war (WW2) would lead to an economic boom?
I admit that economics has about as much 'common sense' as quantum physics but you certainly haven't made any study of it as you are still in the 'blame + zero sum' game that started the Great Depression and kept everybody idle for several decades.
TRICKLEdown does work in some instances.Here in KY and WV WHEN THE Coal industry rolls it great 4 the entire STATE=billions in taxes 4 the state=more jobs=people have more money 2 spend.
