    How about it, Haymarket, like that Ford article. some good stuff there including

    Meanwhile, Ford, under Mulally, drove bargains with employees to reduce hourly compensation to about $50 an hour from $75 previously, reformed its executive culture, changed its research and development strategy, and came up with a financial plan to keep the company solvent without accepting a dime of taxpayer money.
    Imagine that!

    a little bit of selective editing on your part conservative...he agrees with me that nothing can be a 'sacred cow' and that everything on the budget must face the axe, he then states that tax increases will have to be part of the solution, which, if we want to get things straightened out, they will have to be....cuts and tax increases together. tough medicine i know, but no other way around it.

    Do you always stereotype? Everything has to be on the table but as usual you ignored the biggest expense categories which are entitlements. Raising taxes will not put 16 million people back to work and will not generate enough revenue to pay off the debt. Most liberals don't understand that if you grow the economy which tax cuts will do, you increase employment and govt. revenue which with spending cuts will lower the deficit and pay down the debt

    Oh yeah, and here's you accusing the left of being radical and socialists.......

You have too much passion for this issue not to have something else involved here.

    Wow, glad to see I have such an affect on you, thanks for keeping my posts and hopefully you are learning from them as I stand by each of them. Do you need someone to explain them to you?

    Re: Obama to Push for New Spending as GOP Demands Deep Budget Cuts

    The memo went out. Now we're not talking about "spending," we're talking about "investing." Are we really the sheeple they think we are? I sure hope not.

    Republican leaders signaled Sunday that they won't go for President Obama's expected call for more federal spending in infrastructure, education and innovation initiatives in his State of the Union address.

    Cantor questioned reports that Obama will seek new “investments” in his State of the Union address, saying the public had had enough of government spending to boost the economy.
    Read #1 infrastructure=unions, #2 education=unions and #3 innovation initiatives=so-called green technology. No need to watch.

    How about a State of the Union that brings us up to date on who's being held accountable for the evaporation of 25% of homeowners' wealth? (Oh, wait. That'd be Congress and their cronies.) What's being done to fix the housing market? What's being done to address the debacle that is our 50 states teetering on bankruptcy? Who at the SEC lost their jobs for the Maddof mess? What's being done to stop the drain of taxpayer dollars and jobs by illegal immigrants? How about telling the American people that our government is holding people's feet to the fire? Nah.

    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Only that a person who is one hell of a stereotyper, accusing someone else of being a stereotyper is pretty funny.

    So thanks for the entertainment. I already had that set up in a thread elsewhere I guess you didn't see.

    I mean, nobody here really needs evidence you're completely partisan and have no desire for any kind of real debate.

    I still don't get it though, if you're always so right, why bother with all of us incompetant, foreign in my case and by that clearly mentally deficient not as successful IRL, blood sucking socialists?

    To you real debate means telling everyone else what you feel and ignoring the facts that refute it. I have given you and everyone else the opportunity to prove me wrong and yet no one has done that using the actual data. Op Ed pieces and economist's opinions do not trump bea, bls. and Treasury data. Seems to me you have no interest in holding anyone accountable for results but instead continue to buy rhetoric.

    Debate to me means supporting your opinion with facts and refuting someone else's opinions with those facts. You have yet to do that on any issue. BEA.gov, BLS.gov, and the U.S. Treasury provides actual verifiable data. Suggest you and others become familiar with the sites.

    with you there is no debate, with you, we either agree with you and your view of things, or we are 'obviously' liberals, obviously wrong, obviously have never lived in the 'real world'(at least never lived in your version of the 'real world'), obviously never have ran a business like you(although some of us have our doubts, but that is for another time), obviously never had a 'civics' class in school, 'obviously' don't understand the economy, don't understand taxes, apparently we just don't understand. isnt this your view of anyone who disagrees with you on anything? i believe it is. you are not God my friend, (and if you were, why in the hell are you posting on a debate board, don't you have better things to do?), you can be wrong, (often are) and there are those who oppose you politically, who are just as smart, and who have done as well in real life as you claim to have done. you would do well to remember that.

    Exactly I am only wrong when proven wrong. I have given you the actual numbers not projections, not opinions, not propaganda, but actual numbers. I am waiting for you and anyone else to prove me wrong. In the absence of you doing that, I am indeed right.
