Oh come on, be truthful, statistics can be molded, and shaped to say nearly anything anyone wants them to. I'll admit that when the numbers start flying back and forth being used as a defense, or an argument my eyes tend to glaze a bit....Right now though I don't trust a single number from anyone! The truth of the matter if you really dug deep and searched, that you were placed on his ignore list is probably more to do with at some point being a bit of a jack ass to him, rather than your claim. I only say that because that seems to be libs go to crutch when in debate, and a tactic that is well worn today, mockery and ridicule. You may think it funny, and biting, but in reality it is really boorish, rude, and just plain stupid.I'll put it this way. He could not figure out that the BLS data he was citing was cumulative. He thought it was all monthly changes. That the US unemployment population increased by 10 million every month. The problem is that the next column over, total US population would double every month as well. Half a dozen pages of people pointing stuff like that out couldn't get it through his head that he was wrong. It took a very public poll making a mockery of him to get him to realize he was reading his own data wrong. I'm on his ignore list for that very reason. When a user cannot even understand the data he cites, it's hard to respect him. Especially when he refuses to admit he's wrong in the face of basic chart and graph reading.
So it doesn't matter if they can't pay for it, only that people will get mad and riot like children when their desert is taken away? How about future Greek generations, I guess the current crop of dumb asses just say screw them, I want mine now!Greece has cut everything from public pensions to emergency worker payrolls. Greeks are rioting in the streets for basically good reasons. Their government is cutting to the point where public safety is becoming questionable.
There is also a point where your tax rate becomes burdensome, and entities look for ways to avoid paying that tax is there not? Isn't that why many companies take their money off shore?It's not backwards at all. When tax revenues to pay off debt increase due to increased activity rather than spending cuts, it's a sign you're back on track.
It is rather Twilight Zone of you to use a Corporation as your example when liberals end game today seems to be the destruction of such.Corporations never quite feel they are doing better in the long run when their profits expand from bottom line cuts. They feel better when it's top line growth. You only can cut so much before you encounter structural problems. Debt reduction from top line growth is a sign you're actually on the manageable path to solvency.
