Therefore, the base assumption which ends at the saved job itself is rather idiotic as it ignores basic human behavior.
    Here we have OC doing what he does so well... he puts words in other people's mouths and then argues from that point. And he'll argue you said it, and as witnessed above, he will call you stupid for a position he's assigned you. It's the only way the cretin seems to know how to debate... dishonestly.

    OC can't take the words at face value or ask what someone implied or their underlying meaning. Nope... he jumps right in a puts words in other people's mouths. It's a bad habit of his, that and his professional prevaricating while accusing others of it.

    OC, it's time to clean up your pathetic act.

    What's retarded is your ridiculous assumption that the saved/created jobs were created out of thin air and not at the expense of others. You're taking money from Oscar Meyer to "Create or Save" a job, claiming that when the recipient buys hot dogs, he'll create more jobs. It makes no sense.

    "I'm going to take $1.00 from you so we can pay Steve to paint the fence that Al over there decided was the least important thing to spend money on. We're going to save that job. Not to worry, you'll get $.80 back from Steve when he buys your XXX and with that you can hire more people, we'll of course pocket $.20 for providing our services. Everybody wins."

    I think it's fair to say the saved ones did not cost others. Teachers and public servants who held their jobs with the stimulus and lost them after that money was gone did not take other jobs to do so. I woould love to see evidence that they did.

    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.

    I hate to break this to you, but condescending liberals like you are a dime a dozen.

    Of course. Unless you are on board with the republican mantra that government is the answer.

    But, you're still not disputing in any way my point. Not that anyone expects anything more from you.
