    But I can understand where the technical use and common use can be confusing.

    Yea they are. The present themselves different publically but they are exactly the same greedy bunch of corrupt assholes on both sides. You are just blind to the one side that holds your leash.

    Technicalities don't mean ****. The reality is, we're still in a recession.

    There are major systemic problems -- like the corrupting influence of money -- that infect both sides, but that does not make them identical.

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."

    I'm of the opinion that words should mean something, so we should not say we are in a recession when we are not. In a recession, GDP contracts. GDP has been expanding for several years. Therefore we are not in recession. That doesn't mean that the economy isn't bad, because obviously it is.

    Republicrats. Once again, I say that the 2 main parties should merge and their new mascot be a donkey's ass sticking out of an elephant's ass. LOL.

    There are certainly reforms to make, not saying the system is perfect. However, I do not see this as any method of addressing those necessary reforms. This is a deflection.

    And as society grows and we become more technological, more advanced, and more complicated things like welfare, social security, healthcare, etc. will be more and more necessary.

    They are not functionally different enough to have substantial effect.

    Wouldn't it have been better to say: Food stamp rolls to rise?

    When it comes down to it, yeah, they are pretty much the same. The main difference being who they want to give money to (i.e.. who their 'friends' are).
