    Did you miss the meaning of the 2010 election? Did you miss that there are many new members who were not there during the Bush Administration. It looks like the GOP has finally learned. When with the Democrats learn?

    If only you had. If only you had, mr. Pot.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    And the deficits in the 1980s and early 1990s would have been lower, had the Democrats not lied about providing spending cuts.

    YES, we've had to spend alot of money in the last 2.5-3 years, but the reason(s) for that were made very clear - Corporate America created a financial mess they could not get themselves out of and WE, the taxpayers, bailed them out. It was because of their excessive greed that nearly brought our financial system to a complete halt! It was their wrecklessness that cost this country millions of jobs. Yet, what exactly is Corporate America doing now? Building their balance sheets and personal financial portfolios back up while everyone else waits...in unemployment lines.

    Those who blindly support capitalism and the free market system, look at what your blind faith as brought us too? And no. I am not anti-business nor anti-rich. I do not begrudge what the wealthiest among us have achieved. I do, however, have a problem with the irresponsiblity of it all, as well as the lack of accountability. It's like many among the wealthy who caused this mess got their money from the Treasury and gave the rest of us the finger.
    Our current economic condition has 24 million Americans unemployed or underemployed paying very little in taxes and that is hurting economic growth. Democrat Steve Wynn said it best in an article I believe yesterday

    More liberals should pay attention to what is really happening

    Yes, the governor was. Not the mayor of LA.

    And saying that you'll go to hell if you don't sell your possessions and give the proceeds to the poor is not free will; it's coercion
