You = Moron. Of course we're gonna have more debt, you gotta spend money to make enough money to get us out of Bush's mess. More taxes because money doesn't grow on f***ing trees. More wasteful spending, why cos' it's not going to big oil or war?
Liam - August 29, 2009, 1:33 pm,
More government? Probably because people finally realize we can't let the scumbags on walstreet trounce around doing whatever the f*** they please. How do you think we got where we are?
Liam - August 29, 2009, 1:33 pm,
Bottom line, you're a f***ing moron. Read a godd*** book other than the bible for once and please don't talk politics if you're only pretending to be in the know. Educate yourself before you go making a moron out of yourself on the internet.

One hundred Senators, 435 Congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices -- 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country. 300,000,000..
BoneCD - August 29, 2009, 1:46 pm,
300,000,000 citizens voted them in and it's been that way since FDR! If you want real change then throw the 545 out and start anew Liam...just sayin'
BoneCD - August 29, 2009, 1:49 pm,
That was my political rant for the month....I now digress to finer things, like having fun.

Liam, while I disagree with 99.9% of what Retro says, I have to argue with you on one thing. In the USA, money actually grows on shrubs, not trees. We haven't had a basis for our currency since the Silver Standard was eliminated, leaving the dollar "Fiat
Zed - August 29, 2009, 2:24 pm,
"Fiat money", which is just paper and ink, backed by nothing except the promises of the Federal Reserve banking system. It's empty, worthless, and is only honored because "we say so". The whole tax arguement is a smokescreem, because we're arguing about
Zed - August 29, 2009, 2:24 pm,
something that doesn't really exist anyway. You know, like "god".
WTFO - August 29, 2009, 11:37 pm,
Liam, so if your bank account is empty after a spending spree at your house, do you spend more to get yourself out of the hole? No, the govt needs common sense solutions not more money stolen from hard working citizens to pay off campaign contributors.
WTFO - August 29, 2009, 11:40 pm,
Maybe you should read a book, you hateful troll. Zed, where did the God attack come from? You know those who hatefully denounce religion are just as annoying as those who to cram their God down others' throats. Constitution-Freedom of religion. read it.
WTFO - August 29, 2009, 11:41 pm,
Typo: delete "to" before the word "cram". Editing mistake, sorry.
Zed - August 30, 2009, 12:16 am,
Well, someone obviously started their day with a big bowl of "Cranky-O's", I see.
Sean - August 30, 2009, 12:17 am,
Before that he was just WTF.

WTFO, you are an idiot, government spending is not the same as someone 'emptying there bank account' and then spending more to pay it back. Personal finance and government finance are two completely different things and work in totally different ways
Ani - September 1, 2009, 10:40 pm,
Oh yes, and Bush secretly borrowing more and more and more and more and more and more money from other countries and not paying it back so we'd be so far up into Debt's ****ty a**hole is THE BEST PLAN EVER. EBBUR!
WTFO - September 1, 2009, 11:46 pm,
yam, way to win friends and allies and solidify your position as a true Timmy with an attack. Why is it stupid to expect this nation's leaders to obey the same rules they write for us, including balancing the budget? The biggest idiots are in D.C. since
WTFO - September 1, 2009, 11:48 pm,
they believe that personal and govt finance are 2 completely different things and work in totally different ways. Apparently, they've convinced other less educated Americans of the same concept. They share the same basic rules it is just a matter of scale
WTFO - September 1, 2009, 11:49 pm,
Just like your household, the govt has "must pay" bills. They pay those and then should be looking for waste or unneeded things to cut (like expensive junk food in a home's budget). No difference, you've been scammed by them. Open your eyes.
WTFO - September 1, 2009, 11:51 pm,
Ani, have you been asleep over the past 7 months. Obama has borrowed tons more money from China than Bush borrowed from other countries combined. He is also printing dollars which will drive the value of the dollar down. Blind Bush bashers need to think.
Sean - September 1, 2009, 11:55 pm,
Imagine if there was a constitutional ammendment which required a balanced budget? Miss the mark and that triggers an election AND the members of congress and the senate (I'm winging it at the moment) were held personally respiinsible for the shortfall?
Sean - September 1, 2009, 11:56 pm,
And if we don't want to hold them "respiinsible", we can just make 'em pay.
lunchmeat5000 - September 1, 2009, 11:57 pm,
Sean, that sounds like a d*** good plan actually.
Sean - September 1, 2009, 11:58 pm,
Not claiming any originality on my part. Probably something Hayek or Friedman would have written. Otherwise I don't have a clue where I got it.
agdaniele - September 2, 2009, 12:01 am,
(Clint Eastwood twist of the neck) - raise taxes and de-regulate wall street. Works every time. You just have to pull back the regulation before the slump ends. Check history. It's always failed because the de-regulation was allowed to continue too long.
lunchmeat5000 - September 2, 2009, 12:10 am,
Upon further study, there was a balanced budget amendment that passed the House, but failed in the Senate by one vote back during the Clinton Admin(1995). It's been introduced many times over, but never passed. maybe it's about time it does.
WTFO - September 2, 2009, 12:52 am,
Excellent suggestion, Sean. I think the first step though would have to be putting us back on the gold standard.
Bah - October 9, 2009, 2:20 am,
Gold standards don't work for internationally traded currencies. Otherwise, every time there was a price difference people could exploit it. We'd have to stop trading in dollars abroad, ban public commodities trading, and let registered dealers sell gold.
Bah - October 9, 2009, 2:25 am,
Ag, are you being sarcastic? Raising taxes lowers GDP and employment. Increasing spending does increase GDP in the short term, if that's what you were going for, but so does lowering taxes. Similar economic results, difference is freedom vs. consistency
Arrogant Knight - October 9, 2009, 2:26 am,
Spinach and ricotta. Mmmmmmmmmmmm....
Mooooooooooooooooooo - October 9, 2009, 2:30 am,
Is that a pie?....sounds like quiche to me.
manicbranic - November 13, 2009, 3:23 pm,
the value of fiat money is linked to output productivity. Even Mises accepted currency could be linked to capital expansion. The gold standard did not allow for monetary policy flexibility and there were too many moral hazards created by the system ....
manicbranic - November 13, 2009, 3:26 pm,
for it to be optimally beneficial. COncerning the discauusion here, I'd just like to propose that we remember what America faces today is a confluence of problems rather than a single one, and that theres no one way out. The only difference between....
manicbranic - November 13, 2009, 3:34 pm,
between the recessions faced before and this is that wealth was valued less and less as a function of current output and more as a function of future income. That alone is a multipronged issue. Be careful of offering One Big Solution. It's usually wrong.
WTFO - November 13, 2009, 7:20 pm,
Yeah, what he said...I think.
