    There weren't all thse EPA regulations, either. Nor were local governments using traffic lights to generate income. And not nearly as much welfare, either. But hey, only use the historical facts that best support your lame ass argument.

    Only the ones that are written by college professors. If you manage to pick up one that was written by an actual historian, you'll find out the real facts.

    By actual historians do you mean people who did things like go to graduate school? and maybe got a Phd?

    Tell yourself whatever you need to in order to save face, but it won't work. You failed, big time.

    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.

    Some did, some didn't. Most real historians aren't career college profs, to be sure.

    I want to be left alone. I am not the one demanding government take stuff from others to give to me or to prevent them from having it. that is your game, not mine
    Except that you are. The system that made you rich is one that the government spends a lot of time and money protecting. Your way is not some kind of perfect natural default. Being left alone is the last thing you are actually advocating, even if you truly believe it is. You benefit from millions of laws and regulations. Don't play ignorant. We both know better. You're a lawyer aren't you? The kind that, unlike me, actually makes the big bucks. You know all about how to twist and turn the rules to your own benefit. Just like I do, probably better since you've been at it way longer.

    Why do you keep pretending that the truth is something other than what you and I both know it to be?

    Let's see your analysis that made you come to the conclusion that modern pollution control has hurt our economy rather than helped it? Increased welfare is result of trickle down economics and the recession which was brought about by cutting regulation of the banking industry. We have not had such a wide disparity of wealth since the 1920s.
