    The only way you will see fusion in eight years, or probable 80 years is to book the next flight to the sun.

    No, it is like saying we have a printing press at an official Mint, so we can buy enough bondo to cover it.

    That sounds about like you and your solutions. How fitting that you used the words bondo and cover it. This is just what this idiot in the White is doing any you seem to approve of it.

    The real issue is that people like you are a threat to freedom in this country. It's one thing to be fooled and vote for Obama. It's another thing to see the direction he is taking us and approve of it. The former is being nave, the latter is being a danger to our freedoms!

    I disagree with you. The links I showed you provided substantial proof.
    I ran a business, did you?
    No. Yet your opinion would still be your own and your own only.
    You don't seem to understand our economy at all nor the operating expenses of any business nor do you understand supply and demand.
    Yet here we go on another egress to keep from discussing the points you do not wish to prove. Still awaiting your details on the McDonalds point; I can't wait to tear that apart too.

    WHAT is working ?

    Socialistic policies ? Massive stimulus in a vacuum to increase "aggregate demand " ?

    If you want a good example of how destructive these Keynesian solutions are all you have to do is look at Japan.

    There's no objective data showing that Socialistic like policies are working at all.

    I will be the first to say that, all things considered, the economy is doing just fine.

    It wasn't free, however. It was extremely costly to get the economy back to "just fine" after the last couple major financial corrections. Our total debt to annual revenue ratio is worse than it has ever been, keeping interest rates stuck at zero permanently (because changes in rates create net interest expense crises immediately). There's no way to correct this situation without drastically increasing revenue through tax hikes or cutting government services (both examples of austerity), basically in ways that are considered not possible.

    Your opinion noted but since you have never run a business that means you don't have a lot of credibility on the issue nor do you even understand the article Forbes posted. Businesses do not print cash like the govt. and anything that drives up costs hurts small businesses more than the large ones. There is a reason that Democrats running for office are running from ACA but you cannot seem to figure it out nor can you figure out why the McDonald's in North Dakota had to pay their workers $16 an hour. That is what is wrong with this country today, too many ideologues who have no understand of basic economics.

    Sorry you do not understand what I'm telling you. Still waiting for your discourse on that McDonalds subject.

    It is called basic supply and demand along with market conditions. Not enough people to meet the demand for jobs in a state with a booming economy due to expansion of the energy industry.

    Let me understand here. Is that why people are making $16. (? I think that's what you said without looking back at the post.) an hour at McDonalds in North Dakota?
