    Gas prices are down which helps out pretty much everyone, and U.S. production is way up. We are on our way to North American Energy Independence, a goal for decades. Care to tell us why that is?

    Guess again, pal.

    I think both parties are worse then useless and have said so over and over.

    Try less assuming before you speak and you won't be wrong so often.


    Good day.

    Hmm...don't you recall that "good news" before the last election that was "corrected" later?

    The left is so funny.

    federal government spending is predictably elevated at the conclusion of the federal fiscal year ended 09/30. every federal buying activity holds money until the end of the year, to be able to fund any exigencies. and they spend those held back monies by 09/30 because if they do not, they then lose those funds. additionally, next year's budget is often incrementally larger than last year's expenditures. thus, if all the monies allocated for fiscal year 2014 are not spent, then the base amount for the FY 2015 budget year is reduced. our budgetary practices incentivize spending everything available at the end of the year, whether such spending is essential or not
    That is definitely true, and frankly, annoying.

    His statement was clear, concise, and to the point. The same cannot be said of your response.

    I'm glad we are now partly recovering, and wish our recovery were better.
    As do i. But attempting to compare a once in a generation crisis with "other recoveries" is disingenuous. Do you understand why?
    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.

    Not sure why you continue to compare apples with chicken legs.

    His point was that we were in a more technologically advanced and globalized era than previous post-war depressions, and implicitly that that was the cause of our exceedingly slow, low-growth recovery. I asked him to describe how he thought that impacted. Are you seriously suggesting that describing how the conditions that he is referencing would produce the effects he is suggesting is irrelevant?

    "Not sure how that is relevant or necessary".

    In an era of information, most of the world missed the boat by about three years.

    "Not sure how that is relevant or necessary".
    That explains quite a bit.
