    Oh the irony.
    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 think they'd have to be (although it probably cuts down at least $1 trillion).

    California. Sell California to the French. Win/win for everyone. The French could say they make the best wine again. We'd cut our illegal immigration problem in half. Liberals could flock to a socialist state without having to go through airport security. All good except that if the French moved in, any country that invaded California would be able to march to Nevada in 6 hours.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    That's why Snowden picked Russia. He can keep his eye on her from there.

    Yeah. This news was released last night. Today treasuries and equities are both down. And you think that means you're right about how this really was good economic news. What a double-face-palm moment.

    The worst idea i had ever seen. The economy of California is larger than that of India! Without it, the federal government would be at a serious shortfall in terms of net disbursements to Republican states.

    Now it is.... really good economic news. Partisan rhetoric gets you nowhere.

    I have already explained my position:

    The U.S. deficit projects to have a Jan-Dec decline of roughly 60%.

    That.... is good news no matter how much you hate the current administration.
