  • Germany, ECB take tough line against Greece [View news story]
    "Actually, the Norwegian position is not that they can afford to offer leave, but rather that investing in the welfare of their citizenry is an investment that is worthwhile and one that pays off"

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Greek overly generous leave is an investment in gaming the system that is not worthwhile and does not pay off.

    "You make my point"

    Was your point Norway can afford generous leave and Greece cannot?

    "Maternity leave policy in Norway (one of the most financially successful nations on earth)"

    Hundreds of billions in oil revenue can do wonders for a country.

  • The Confiscation Of Bank Deposits And The Derivative Debt: James Corbett Interviews Ellen Brown On GRTV (Video) [View article]
    "Right here:"

    Yes, a single conservatively run organization in a conservatively run state.

    How does that help the liberals who want a liberally run bank in a liberally run state?

    Should California follow Ellen's suggestion to start a state bank?
    To deposit state funds and fund state projects?
    Would high speed rail be a good idea to fund with, for instance, your deposits in a California state bank?
    Would that save the state lots of money?
    Any chance of politically motivated, stupid loans being made, and defaulted on, with taxpayer guaranteed funds?
    Or am I being unreasonably cynical?

  • Can A Central Bank Always Create Inflation? [View article]
    "***** You have no way to determine authenticity or " not"...."

    I guess Jefferson could have been using the modern definition of deflation, decades before it ever came into common usage.

    "And if Jefferson lived a great life and died broke, that's every mans dream to make your money and " the end" happen at the same time......"

    I prefer to leave some money for my heirs.

    "Making a note not to follow this author"

    Because $1.6 billion in dividends is a better indicator of ownership?

    "it is akin to govenment "theft" to "subsidize" business.."

    Investing in your own retirement so you're not dependent on the promises of politicians.

    I see why you're against it.

    Government theft to subsidize government is more to your liking.

    "As to taxes ect and "free money" Why do all these anti-tax people not go after FICA? THE MOST pointless and regressive tax on the books.."

    Putting FICA payments into private accounts is a great idea.
    It's kinda hard to save when the government takes 12.4% of your lifetime earnings.

    "facts are not a "weak" argument.."

    The argument that the government should or could print money to cover 100% of its spending is ridiculous. And that's a fact.

    "Why the federal income tax could be abolished overnight -- and the government would never run out of money"

    ^
    That is a weak argument.

    Yes, Lindbergh was a nut.

    "Thomas Jefferson warned against private banks when he said: "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporation that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.""


    And I love the fake quotes!

    "don't feel sorry for me, I worked through the curtain and saw the emperor..and he is surely naked.. ;)"

    If the following is your proof that the emperor is naked.....

    "Why the federal income tax could be abolished overnight -- and the government would never run out of money"

    You might want to check your meds.
    You could have some bad interactions scrambling your brain.
