    I recall that it was the rich Wall street segment that brought his country close to economic ruin in 2008. They create the bubbles that make them rich and they skip when they burst and leave the tax payers to pick up the pieces and give them more money.

    the housing bubble is caused by liberal policy designed to give people things they can't afford, and had a major part in our economic ruin.

    On page 46, following the mental activity quote, you find what I've argued all along:

    So the argument is not what you are NRO is trying to make it out to be, so once again they are inaccurate.
    actually NRO cited that point and dealt with it as well. but nice try.

    but i'm still waiting on you to defend the right of Congress to regulate mental activity.

    Nothing new here, most of the people polled need entitlements to survive, and don't really understand what the national debt means to them, personally. I don't either. What it comes down to is just another political ploy to justify cutting back on entitlements. More crucifying of the weak and helpless.

    Cutting back on government expenses means cutting jobs, less jobs means less spending, more foreclosures, and less Democrat votes. Sounds more like a Republican political ploy than a deficit problem...

    Oh, the fickle American public...

    I've been saying this for awhile now. Maybe it's time to stop blaming the government for everything and start being introspective about ourselves, the People. Our government is only as competent/effective as the electorate that chooses them.
    Then jack up taxes. If you want it, you got to pay for it. There's no such thing as a free lunch.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
