    so what would you do, specifically? like i said, i'm not sure what that would look like. upthread, i posted the plan of action that i would support.

    With anything above a third world AnCap, second and first world are considered more developed due to socialism bailing out capitalism, like usual.

    Who is the "investing public"? Are they the few that do most of the investing? Are they the ones that have the real knowledge? Is that real knowledge about the long term or the short term, i.e. are they just looking for short term gains?

    I have to add to be clear: The investing public is not the public that has their money managed by a pro, but the ones that buy and sell themselves. (sorry that I keep adding, but) Note the investing public is a small portion of the public.

    I asked for a specific example of when Socialism had to bail out Capitalism.

    Given that there are very few examples of pure Socialism or Capitalism, so dropping those out, how about now? Data suggests that it is working. (btw, pure anything is a invitation to trouble. Just an engineer's pov.)

    Can you show me where in your stats it shows over 500,000 jobs created? I'd like to see that!

To put it simply if those 320,000 people had just recently lost their positions (Which we do not know for sure, as the potential pool for UI recipients is in the millions) , than roughly 500,000 people found employment in the same month. It's also important to note that the total number of UI recipients has declined in the past year.

    Thus a liberal success story, less employees, lower economic growth, and high debt. You really do have low standards, don't you? Apparently only when someone with a D is in the office

    had we done this in 2008, the economy would look a lot different today.
    Sorry, but COBRA was in place long before the stimulus and I don't recall the stimulus providing any funding for healthcare. Had Obama not bailed out the unions but rather worked with the private sector things would look a lot better today. As it is we have low economic growth, fewer employees working today than when the recession began, high debt which apparently is what some here want to trumpet.
