    Oh wait....
    It's not a tax cut if you don't pay any net taxes to begin with.

    You're not going to get any of the "Reagan is God" folks to recognize that his economic positions were absurd and damaging any more than you can get an "Obama is God" person to see that he was way under-qualified to be President.

    See above. I didn't expect you to. However, making generalized comments with clearly no actual understanding doesn't suggest you are anything more then a hack. When Don talks about this stuff, he goes into extreme detail discussing specific side affects and potential consequences often with mathematical calculations behind his posts. You just make broad, vague, factless partisan attacks. No one comes down on Don for his posts. You get slammed all of the time. Perhaps you should first educate yourself before posting? Just some advice.

    Besides, no matter what I post you'll claim that I'm wrong, that your superior knowledge of the subject is superior and that I don't understand it.
    Well, when all you have is vague, ambiguous commentary that doesn't show you know anything, what else can I do?

    Does the fact that I bring up real specific points and you can't address them suggest anything to you?

    I do have better things to do then try to satisfy your level of "explanation"
    Indeed, you could actually educate yourself as to what you talk about.

    Has anyone else noticed that when OC demands you explain something, if it's not hyper-explained he ****s on your post as if you are a stupid idiot, yet when forced to explain anything he just runs away?
    Incorrect. I only ask those who clearly don't understand to explain they understand. Basically I only ask you as a tool to hint that maybe you need to learn. Have you seen me do that to Phattonx? No. Because he understands. I don't agree with his views but he does understand. I don't always agree with RightinNYC, but he does understand. You and others like you, that's something else.

    As for running away, care to look at where I explained linear regression to Zimmer? Running away you say?

    I'm not much of a student of these types of governments that are regularly employed in other countries, but I'm starting to think you might be right. Problem is, I doubt those in the two-party system would have any intention of giving up their power.

    Actually, Reagan's policies where not that damaging, and in some ways did help pull us out of the economic bad times. Tex cuts do work. Spending does work. The problem was that it was not followed up with a serious attempt to reduce the deficit once times had improved.

    The funny sh*t is that Obama is doing many of the same policies as Reagan. But apparently the hacks here think it's okay to blame Obama despite his similar policies to Reagan.

    1) Flooding the market with spending. Check
    2) Expanding military spending. Check
    3) Reducing interest rates. Check
    4) Giving incentives to corporations to spend. Check
    5) Lowering taxes. Check.

    Wait, I forgot. Who are we talking about?

    Not really. The problem is the recession was financial/liquidity based.

    As history shows, there are no good responses that work. I've asked the hacks here to come up with plans, but they don't seem to understand the difference between a regular recession and one that started in the financial sector.

    If we look at actual data (shocking I know), historically financial based recessions take significently longer to heal independent of who is in office.

    From an overall standpoint, though, Reagan's concept of "trickle down" economics is absurd. It does not take into account the psychology of human greed. If you help those on top, the assumption that they will help those beneath them is ridiculous. They will just keep more for themselves. From my recollection, we say a huge widening of upper and other classes, economically, during the Reagan years. I had a lot of respect for some of Reagan's policies... his foreign policies, especially, but he really missed the boat, economically.
