    Yes, the private industry is tough with no guarantees, although I doubt what you say that he was conservative in his investments or his spending habits. What you and all other liberals want to do is put everyone into the same category and ignore cost of living, personal living expenses, spending habits, and of course the area of the country in which they lieve.

    It's already happened that when companies fail the government bails them out. They'll be having bail out everyone soon, and not just Big Business. How might that effect the economy with the government already $17,000,000,000,000 in debt? Cut off food stamps?

    Cannot? Well those links list where the money goes. How about you look at them and tell which they can do without and how it would effect comfort, not to mention expectations of this country.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Now responsive to the question I answered, but responsibility is seldom held in one place. We have individual responsibilities, work responsibilities, community responsibilities, and corporate responsibilities, among others.

    He was. That much was clear.

    Who says they have to live without those expenses? Those expenses aren't the same in TX as they are in NY and aren't the same in Iowa as they are in California. Someone can live quite comfortably in communities in Iowa and TX for 40,000 a year

    The stock market today is at record highs so unless he sold he is better off today than he was when the market crashed which was only for a couple years.

    Sure we do, just like we have priorities and the number one priority is personal responsibilities and how we deal with those responsibilities, first by making sure the income comes in by handling your work responsibilities and you do that by taking pride in your work and your company which then handles corporate responsibilities as well as community responsibilities. I was always a good corporate citizen and that met my responsibilities to my work

    Actually it does. You have to think, true, but it does. We handle things much better here because we do catch things, treat things, and have some ability to monitor disease. So the answer was a clear yes. Too anyone who could read it.
