    You won't mind if I ask for clarification: What the hell are you talking about?

    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.

    He's under the impression that the most effective liberal satirist since Abbie Hoffman is actually a corporomilitarstatist stooge.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    He posted something about a position he claims Stewart took on something that he disagreed with, but I can't find it.

    No need to look. I'm only marginally curious.

    It was talked about on CNN last night how the Iranian complexes are too deep for even American bombs to disrupt the nuclear program. If bombs are out of the equation, what does that leave?

    Zeitgeist is fake, new age crappola produced by SONY PICTURES.

    Watch the BBC's "The Power of Nightmares" on YouTube, instead.

    Like CNN is privy to US military secrets? You think we release the specs on all the latest weaponry? Com'on, as far as I know the top speed of the SR-71 is still a secret (there are some guesses) - at least it was even after 10+ years of active service.
