  • So the U.S. lost S&P's AAA rating for the first time in a 70-year history; so what? Mark Thoma says this is S&P erring on the only side it can after blowing the pre-crisis situation. Always pragmatic Warren Buffett says solvency's not an issue when the debts are all in currency the U.S. can print; inflation, that's another story.

    Like they do fair trade....If they don't want our money, don't buy our bonds or send they're products to the US.

    I will agree as soon as you get Republicans to commit to a 15% flat tax rate with no loopholes or deductions. This includes ALL corporations and ALL earnings including overseas and quit using public money to subsidize private industry.

    Oh and BTW, S&P below 620, you just might get your wish. I am a trader, not a gold or silver or stock bug.

    I don't do paper, except to trade and made some nice returns of the run to 48 on silver. Gold will come back down. That i see it at 10000, yes. But i also see gas at 35 dollars a gallon and people walking around with 20000 dollar bills in their pockets.
    Me, i prefer land. At least i can live off it.

    The book is over 2000 years old. And still applies today. Look at what the vietnamese did, guerilla warfare. In Iraq it is urban guerilla warfare. And here we are, 8 years later after everyone saying let's go in, whining about bring back our troops. Have not heard one single "Mission Accomplished" from anyone anymore. Many of the techniques now used are just variations, elaborate, but still variations of the book. Even Rommels panzer tank pinzer moves and his Spartan style wedge, driving through the enemy ranks and having a rear guard blowing up those chasing him and.. well you get the picture. I love tactics. But the Iraq war is nothing more than a homicidal attack on a country. A vengeful, unprovoked attack on an much inferior force. Too many people dead. And for what?

    GWB was a moron and an asshol*, and i say it with full conviction. He never paid attention to what his generals in Iraq said. It was all political propaganda like the "Mission Accomplished". SOB.
    In War College one of the required readings is Sun Tzu's "The art of War" This idiot went against every single postulate in that treaty. That's why Iraq is such a mess. And the worst part is his General's would advise him and he would ignore them. He did not give a crap about anyone. One self centered zealot. I put him in the league with Rev. jimmy jones in Guyana.
    You would have to pay me one million dollars for me to read his "sack of lies" memoirs. I hope he hurries up and dies for causing so much death and destruction so arbitrarily.

    They don't need the BATF to ship weapons. You can special order them from Russia. Coupl RPG's, a thousand or so AK47's, oh yea, seen china's newest Aircraft carrier...oops sorry, exploration vessel. They want to explore the waters around Taiwan. Until Taiwan gets pissed and releases a couple of nukes at Bejing.

    I believe 18 o 20% GDP would be fair. I am also for a 15% flat tax, no deductions on anything. You pay 15% on any and all income. Companies can deduct salaries but that's the sum of the deductions. No more parking funds overseas. Everyone pay their share. That way it forces everyone to think on what they REALLY need to invest in, including companies.
    I beleive in SS and Medicare for one reason. We must take care of our past if we want our children to have a future.
    Problem is not the drug companies, it's the insurance companies. I have always predicated on cutting out the middleman and go one on one.
    As far as the Dems to commit, i beleive the correct comment is for both to commit. Cuts yes, revenue also. I am already paying 40% of my income in all sort of medical and taxes but the other 60% let me invest and grow.

    I do not know what to respond TVP. I already seen Govt privitzing on my tax dollars. Overruns on Govt projects by Private Industry. The last fiasco with holding up the FAA Tax/Fees whatever you want to call it will result in billions of dollars in payment of change orders, unemployment, loss in revenues and the only winner here are the private contractors which will recieve compensation for the work stoppage. Me, i'll have to pay out of my pocket. I have seen the Repub administration and it is no good. I think it's time to let the Dems show what they can do. As i said Republicans had their chance and they blew it, this whole mess was inherited not caused.

    Bingo, you hit the nail on the head. Look what happened when China wanted to buy up Rio or BHP. Australia and Brazil sent them packing. The real danger is the amount of human exporting china is doing to other countries to maintain their cheap labor(slavery) while trying to get its currency accepted as a world currency. There's the real problem. Brazil already told China it will not permit any more Chinese immigration if their was local labor to perform the work.

    TVP,
    Have you ever had the feeling that was the intention of the US? US, Germany, France and India are the biggest innovators in the world. Why do you think the Chinese want more R&D done on their soil?
    China and Russia can holler all they want, in the end i believe S&P will pay for it's jumping the gun. US will come out of it like back in the 50's. Just give it some time.

    TVP,
    The problem is the government privitizes something, then uses my tax money to pay for it! In effect i am subsidizing a private corporation! If it's private the government should not be giving it one red penny. If you need something you purchase it. That's my problem with all this debt talk. A voucher system for medicare? C'mon, we all know where that's going. The same direction Social Security would if Bush had put our funds in the stock market.

    You will have to excuse my disagreement but if what you say is true we should be in hog heaven with the Bush Tax cuts. Sorry but the facts don't corroborate your statement. If we were in a perfect world socialism would be the best government style, but we are not in a perfect world. In a perfect world child labor and slavery would not exist but we are not in a perfect world. In a perfect world capitalism would reinvest equally between stockholders and employees and greed would not be an issue...but we are not in a perfect world.
    Trickle down economics does not work.
