    Which is why i cannot take you seriously.
    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.

    How does one acquire disposable income?

    Now you want to retract your statement?

    The extraction occurred elsewhere because the U.S. cannot produce the energy necessary to meet demand. It is called mutually beneficial gains from trade. Low-brow econ 101.

    One does not "acquire" disposable income. It is the portion of ones gross income that can be allocated towards consumption or savings. Perhaps you meant, "how does disposable income grow"?

    I've heard that argument before, but unemployment was only a little over 4% in 2008, not that long ago.
    I think it where the zero interest money is heading. Jobs in the past have been lost overseas, but the reason we are having a jobless recovery is due to investments in technology from what what I have heard a few guests on less partisan shows say.

    I don't want to retract anything. We have more energy resources in this country than anywhere else on earth between oil and NG, not to mention what we could do with nuclear for electricity. Do you not want to take advantage of that to employ people in this country?

    Perhaps but if you instill a self-reliance mentality in people they will be better decision makers even if they do not end up self-employed IMHO. We are producing cattle.
