    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.

    Actually, it is a major contributing factor as it is a large reason for our current account deficit, or do you not believe that dollars flowing out of the country is a problem?

    Not to worry, I'm sure that someplace, somewhere, there's a tidbit of positive data to assure us that good times are just around the corner. They've been saying it for three years. They'll have to be right eventually, right?

    Right?
    And I'm sure you are digging extremely hard to find good and positive news ever since around February 20th of 2009.

OR to think massive amounts of borrowed or printed currency would turn the economy around when he was basically dictating health care expenses for private entities AND individuals.

    Its as if you think this economies downward trend is just a fluke with no CREDIBLE explanation and since there is NO WAY your going to criticize the current President, you just chalk it up to a generality. " The Recession "

    I thought the point of a recession from a Presidents point of view was to climb out of it.
    Had you been around here in early 2009, you would have witnessed my criticism of the ARRA. Had you been here in 2011, you would have witnessed my criticism of the ACA for not including a public option, and heavy deregulation of the insurance industry (as a means of creating public/private competition ala UPS and the Post Office).

    Because i support deficit spending with high unemployment and expansionary/nonconventional monetary policy does not equate to me having a man-crush on Obama.

    Oh. I was under the impression you were attributing our current woes to the 2007-2009 Recession. It's interesting to note for those who DO attribute current stagnation to the 2008 sub-prime collapse that Obama is currently pushing for Ginnie Mae to take up the reigns of Fannie -Mae, ( Circa 1999- 2007 )

    And he's calling for lower lending standards and a 3.5% capital requirement for loans purchased by Ginne-Mae. It's also interesting to note that Ginnie -Mae is the only GSE who actually is backed 100 % by the US government.

    The assumption that through 2002-2009 that Fannie and Freddie were was incorrect, but I remember certain Politicians saying the US Govt would bail them out.

    Do you comprehend how deficits add to output by definition?
    It depends on what the basis of a deficit might be. Spending on non productive activities adds little to nothing to GDP...

    This is exactly what i am talking about. Your lack of knowledge in regards to political economy leads you to make all sorts of bull**** comments. A current account deficits does not equate to dollars flowing out of the country. On the contrary, it means foreign owned U.S. assets are increasing.

    We have already had this discussion. It didn't go well for you.

    No, it means that we send dollars to other countries rather than deploying the resources domestically....

    people are being replaced with machines whenever and wherever they can be. perhaps people should stop training to work for GM and big manufacturing and start training to be self-employed entrepreneurs.

    Self-employment may be a bit of a stretch, but there are jobs that can be created without a lot of "investment" by the government that can generate revenue for the government...
