On a re-read of your post(s) I think I have to agree with you. The irony isn't lost on me.<quoted text>
Attack? There is no attack. Here is the specifics of what has happened:
I made a joke about you being half right about Obama's great work as president because rich people are still doing well, while his base of poor people are doing worse. It wasn't the greatest joke ever told, but it was amusing to some, I'm sure. What it WASN'T was an "attack." It was a joke based on some truths.
Based on this crack, admittedly at the expense of your false idol, you decided definitively (in your mind), that I was a "deficit hawk," and that you find it funny that I "believe spending by government is bad but good when it's private."
Then you told me to "Call me when you've read up on economics. For yourself, not the drivel squeezed out by Fox and the tea party."
So far... based on a joke about unemployment, gas prices, and the Dow... you have decided that you know a lot about my beliefs, and that my intellectual pursuits in economics have been limited to Fox News and the Tea Party literature.
Then you whispered, "psst... there's no such thing as trickle down economics."
Again... you pull another idea that you don't like out of thin air and decide that I am a champion of it... simply because I clearly am not a worshiper of Obama. I did not express anything about trickle down, yay or nay.
Then I called you out on it by saying that my post sent you into an anti-GOP rage, causing you to associate me with GOP ideas that you didn't like even though I didn't address them.
Then you HILARIOUSLY responded with yet, another anti-GOP rage!
You said that the GOP, "don't have ANY ideas except:
- Lower taxes for the rich
- Lower taxes on businesses (oil co's particularly)
- Raise taxes on middle income earners
- Cut Social Security and Medicare
- Cut benefits to the neediest
In other words serve their wealthy "owners". Those don't really qualify as "economic ideas", you know? Oh, I forgot, you do know 'cause you've got a "degree in Economics". Rrrright."
I hope the irony isn't lost on you that this all started by my joke about how the rich are doing the best under Obama!
(Based on this post, joe... what are my views on the rain forest?)
