Best you start stocking up on vegetable seeds and hoarding precious metals since the welfare state is coming to an end.
It is obvious you have no understanding of how macro-economics works. Our economic system depends on full exploitation of all resources to maintain economic growth. When it falls into a recession all growth ceases. Consumer confidence and spending plunges along with confidence in the stock market. The velocity of spending, exploitation, leveraging, and speculation are some of the driving factors. The only time government spending hinders growth is when government borrowing competes with the private sector to drive up interest rates. This has not occurred yet. Stock market speculation is vigorous. The two major restraining forces right now are energy and the housing market bubble burst. Now you and your tea-bag Republican cronies are advocating adding austerity measures to the mix of restraining forces. The bottom line is you are asking to plunge the already fragile economy back into a depression.

You must be kidding me.

Sorry dude but you are the clueless one. In the United States where we live on borrowed money (which are non productive dollars). By inserting the borrowed money into the market place definitely drives up the price of limited goods and services. The INTEREST on the borrowed dollars eats up a big percent of revenue collected from the taxpayers so what is a liberal govt. congressman to do ? Increase taxes ? Cut spending ? Increase spending ? Give themselves a payraise ? Shut his eyes and throw at a dart board ? Deny that there is a problem ?

There is the problem ! There is not one soul in Washington that has any idea of cause and effect.

Debate this: There are more non-working than working in the market place in the United States today and no nation has ever survived with that ratio. Unless we cut govt. spending, cut taxes, and reduce rules and regulations that hamper businesses (force them offshore), we will have DETROIT CITIES all over the United States.

BTW, all liberals should relocate to Detroit and attempt to solve the problems they caused before destroying the entire U.S. economy.

There you go again, Yes, Bush signed the first TARP package (all 4 pages) which opened the door for the LIBERALS to expand it to over 400 pages. The American public KNEW it was a mistake but both political parties voted it in.

<quoted text>His biggest problem is that he attempts to "control" others on the board. He attempts to manipulative conversations, domineer them with his own viewpoint, and *knowingly and deliberately* misstate context in attempts to make it appear that others "don't know" or "can't answer." He misses primarily that no one here is under any obligation to him.

In his last response to me, for the first time, I began to deconstruct what he is doing publicly. So long as I don't grow bored with his literally amoral behavior and shockingly public insecurities, I can do this for a very, very, very, very, very long time. Boredom always ends up being the problem.

I once decided to fight someone on here until they stopped. It lasted three months. I realized why most people don't bother. It's like you're feeding another person's witlessness and spinelessness -- according to my own psychological theory, because they feel themselves to be "nobodies" in real life, and so they seek attention online. That's my best guess, at any rate.
I would add that during the formative years, there may have been abuse.

<quoted text>Yes, it's 2012, already. When are the gender-distressed going to come up with something other than "anyone who disagrees with homosexuality has "latent" tendancies"?
It's like a negro telling a white he's "jealous" of poor oppressed blacks.
That's not what pro-gay people are saying. They're saying the most *virulently OBSESSED* are usually latently gay.

Unfortunately for the antigay, news reports bear this out: They keep getting caught with their pants down,

over, and over, and over.

Hey, blame the media. They're obviously not making it up; they'd get sued. But when they call out the antigay, there's this weird, curious *SILENCE* followed by *BLANKET DENIAL*--

You keep trying to interest me, but I'm very selective in what I read. Only someone that has posted something coherent and intelligent in the past grabs my attention.
I gave you two chances and you failed. No way will I read anything that has hi hi as the poster addressed to me, so you can simply save yourself some keyboard activity by ignoring me completely.

It was 700 billion. Why are you comparing pages instead of dollars to the second TARP???

Because every page added increased the total cost of what is known as TARP 2. The libs had to enhance the program to get the extra cash and to debate other wise is folly.

If you think government is spending and regulating too much now, think if same sex couples had the right to infertility treatments, new marriage and divorce and custody law become gender blind and courts get to favor a mascot victim group.

Same sex marriage is harmful to everyone; not just bad for homosexuals.

Right. All I know is after 7 years of Bush, unemployment started skyrocketing and the DOW lost half its value. All while Bush and McSame claimed "The Economy is fundamentally sound." If it was the Democrat Congress that destroyed the economy he would have been making that very clear. Enough said.

Trolling ? The only troll in this conversation is YOU, since YOU were the one that contested a post dealing with different Islamic sections going to war with each other over their differences. The entire post was different religions in the US have not gone to war over their different readings of the bible.
YOU are attempting to troll your misguided opinion into religion as being the cause of NC voting against Gay Marriage. No rational sane person regardless of their religion would say that homosexual habits are normal.

Gays have their own denominations of Christianity and their own networks of churches worldwide

You just don't hear about it because gays do the Work of the Lord according to the Gospel of Saint Matthew:

++++++++++
Matthew 6:1> Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
.
Matthew 6:2> Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
.
Matthew 6:3> But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
.
Matthew 6:4> That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
