    LOL. I suggest you quote me where I used the phrase or word fillibuster in relation to what you are talking about.

    Hint: I did not. You are creating argument not made.

    My argument is that the dems were in opposition to GSE oversight in totality. Republicans were mostly for it. This would mean both sides bear responsibility because special interest groups bought and sold their vote---different interest groups to be sure, but the result was the same.

    This is your logic. Your flawed, twisted logic.
    Except that's not my logic. The bill made it out of committee. Where it died was Senate leadership not putting it to a full vote in the Senate. That:s my logic.

    That is because like so many things you don't understand that unemployment and inflation are economic indicators.

    Poor, Con. Can't win an argument, so he has to make up ****. :

    I never said that inividually, those aren't economic indicators. Isaid when you blend them together to form the misery index, you're not using an economic indicator to measure the economy. I know you know this since you avoided the example I gave you.

    Here's another one...

    Let's take a misery index of 4. According to your illogic, that indicates a strong economy with low unemployment and low inflation. But since the misery index is not an indicator of the economy, it could also mean we have a crappy economy with 10% unemployment and 6% deflation.

    Like I said, maybe some day you'll understand that. Unfortunately, today is not that day.

    Blending them together? LOL, no adding them together is indeed an economic indicator but since you have no concept of the components of GDP just like you don't know that the civilian labor force are those eligible to work, the reality escapes you.

    It is rather interesting that we have 143 million working Americans today after adding over 6 trillion dollars to the debt when 6 trillion dollars less we had 146 million. Yes, Obama is an economic genius and great leader.

    I asked you, but you don't seem to want to answer. Couldn't some inflation mean the economy is expanding?

    Inflation = a good thing? Well, my limited understanding is that inflation is a way for the treasury to claw back in excess currency in circulation, so in a macro effect kind of way then good, or bad, it is a necessary function when too much currency has been introduced. As for the effect on an economy, I'd have to say hell no it isn't a good thing, unless you think that having less spending ability is good for a service based economy.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Artificially yes, it could expland but since you don't understand the components of GDP you have no idea the negative effect of inflation.
