Canada is not afraid to go after it's energy resources so they are experiencing an energy boom country wide like ND is in this country. That could be happening here too but good olé obama and the Dem's have kept us off the playing field.
I would imagine it is because the Canadian military is ranked about 57th in the world and although they are the 2nd largest country. Fewer inhabitants thus smaller military.
Not going to argue the "war" part, because a country with about 70K in the military, they wouldn't be expected to do the job America does with 1.5 Million active duty and about the same amount in Reserve military.
Agree America shouldn't be spread all over the globe fighting wars, but we are, so what is the solution?
We're talking about the Bush tax cuts. You want to go back to the 70% tax rate?How old are you, try reading up on the Reagan tax cuts.
From your source:The CBO has stated the tax cuts for the wealthy would have little short term effect for the economy.
So I guess all the effects would be temporary, at least according to your source.CBO projected that the economy would contract by 1.3 percent in the first half of 2013, which would meet the traditional definition of a recession, which is when the economy shrinks for two consecutive quarters.
"Such a contraction in output in the first half of 2013 would probably be judged to be a recession," CBO said.
The economy would rebound at a 2.3 percent growth rate in the second half of the year, however, under CBO projections.
Of course not. How could they be? That doesn't change the fact that everyone one was better off for it. I'm curious why it pains you so much to admit that.They were not equal for everybody, nor were Reagan's.
One who makes himself a worm cannot complain when tread upon.
I found this HuffPo article actually pretty interesting. "Richer than Americans? Maybe on Paper."
