"If your opponent is of choleric temperament, seek to irritate him." - Sun Tzu
Keep laughing because that is what you always do to divert from your actual ignorance. Do you really think the average American gives a cr*p about your analogies? I have dealt with the average American and understand them better than you ever will. Continue with your linear regression, causation does not mean correlation and other intellectual theories and those that worked for me will continue to generate actual results and thus individual successes. That is a hard concept for the intellectual elite to understand as you and others prefer to keep the public dependent and thus victims.
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.
Looks like a cult of common sense ignorance. Gabriel you fit in quite well as you not only ignore the thread topic but the facts presented to you and the sites given. One of these days you too will grow up, maybe. If you don't you are going to look back and wonder what happened as you accomplished absolutely nothing.
Obama says THE GOP is making life tough for the unemployed?
What about the Messiah's arbitrary and pointless ban on off-shore drilling in the Gulf?
What about His total economic incompetence?
Barry is playing the blame game, when the nation wants results, not finger pointing.
Which can only mean Barry can't (or won't) provide the results needed.
The GOP called a halt to yet more deficit spending to accomplish nothing. What's wrong with that?
economic incompetence? Bush?
results? whatever are you talking about?
One question had some reasonable thinking but.. the reason it is wrong both economically and morally is that unemployment is @ 10%. The economy is just starting to come around but.. private enterprise is not employing on mass. The spending cut is incredibly small compared to say the cost of the tax cuts bush implemented.. the bill to provide some financial assistance to people was microscopic in comparison and it was cut in half. But still the republicans would not give it one vote.
So with the economy coming out of the dirt the republicans want to be able to cry about how poorly managed the recovery was and force millions of people to fend for themselves. The republicans were playing partisan politics in light of the fact they were voting for austerity, prematurely and pretending to be fiscally conservative, which is a complete pile of crap. Inflation is nothing to worry about at 10% unemployment.
They did it to try to make the dems look bad, that is all.
Love the speculation of people like you who really don't have a clue. You don't know me nor will you but like most people of your ideology today you aren't nearly as smart as you think you are. One wise man once told me to "never look back and have to say you are sorry." You and others will one day look back and wonder what happened to your life. I developed and promoted a lot of people in my career and based upon what I have seen from you, failure is an option that you will soon have to accept.
