    You're going to China? Cuba? Where? There are no communist in our government.

    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.

    No, not now, but Obama and his regime are working hard to take us in that direction. Thank God that most American see that and are going to vote his ass out next year.

    That should help balance the budget...
    Help only, of course, we must bring home our money.
    I think the progressive tax scale is good, but the rates should never have been changed, as they have been under Reagan and other Presidents who curry favor from the rich.
    But, IMO, this is but a part of the problem.
    Too many years of trade deficits have drained the wealth of the middle class and have created a larger "poor class".
    Our money is in the OPEC nations, China, Mexico, Japan, Germany, anyplace but home...

    So, how does Gates being worth $40 billion from a monopoly help the economy, exactly?
    One man hogging all the money, at first look, helps NOT our economy.
    But there must be a lot more to this......
    For our economy to be "good", the people must learn NOT to waste.
    An example of waste is the working man of 50 years ago drinking up his generous pay check every week rather than investing in his family's future..
    What we need now is a computerized low emissions coal fired heat unit for our homes.....one example....nore "low emissions", NOT "no emissions".
    Another example is our nations "health".
    There are far too many fatties around....IMO, its a mental thing.....people do not like themselves.....

    Funny,but unoriginal. Inaccurate and false as well. But, never getin the way of a good delusion I always say.

    Oh great here we go... If someones taxes are higher than the others the right found a new word for it its called "class war" now apparently... Just like with the rich the right now uses the word "job creators" now... Sooo lame...
    Who creates the jobs, if they don't?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
