It helps the economy.
It hurts the economy.
I don't know.
Obama is NOT 50 feet tall, he is ONE inch deep.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”

I mean the whole idea that government spending doesn't create jobs is simply, obviously, not true.
We sit here fighting about whether government spending creates jobs on the internet, which was born in the military, paid for by govt.
Microwave ovens, microcircuitry, velcro, lots of things that we take for granted were born under government contract.
Private enterprise commodified them and brought them to market, but govt gave the grants to the universities/companies that made the core discoveries.
We have complex problems that are going to require complex solutions.
Reductionist arguments are not going to help us solve anything.
Maybe its time the people figured out what to do amongst ourselves and then told the govt what we want them to do.
But that means a genuine exchange of ideas.
Which for some reason seems possible here lately.
Anyone wondering what I'm talking about start here:
The Psychology of Persuasion
Propping up the economy artificially, does nothing good for the economy. All it does is delay the inevitable, when the government injects money into the economy its akin to giving a patient pain pills when in fact the patient needs surgery.
Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
