  • Former GE CEO Jack Welch rips Pres. Obama's support for a millionaire's tax as "a transfer payment. You take it from one pan, put it in the other. It doesn’t work." On the administration: "They are spenders... They don’t believe jobs come from the private sector. They believe government creates jobs."  [View news story]
    If you think this is Obama's economy, you don't have any understanding of how far the NOT SO FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS drove our economy off the cliff, or how high the cliff was.

    Okay, then let's all stop paying taxes. Hell, if the upper 2-5% don't have to pay, why does the middle class. We have property rights too. Then when we cut everyone's taxes we can join the "Third World Club".

    To reiterate, Bill Clinton out "Republicaned" the "Republicans. I think that's why they hated him so much.

    tweliott, your absolutely correct and everything bob adamson said we did, set the stage for us to be able to rebuild the Europe and Japan.

    Too bad the "Greatest Generation" isn't here to make it happen again. But, the Party of "NO" would be the first to tell them it couldn't be done.

    Well then Jack, let's quit taking it from the middle class pan and putting it in the upper class pan.

    Is it any wonder a gazillionaire would be against taxing their gazillions?

  • United Technologies' (UTX) Otis Elevator unit says it will shift manufacturing jobs back into the U.S. from Mexico in a "reshoring" move. Higher costs overseas and innovation back home are also helping persuade other multinationals to return jobs to the U.S. economy, although it's only a "trickle" and not a "trend."

    This couldn't be because they're killing and kidnapping people in Mexico, could it?

    Whenever business wants safety they come home.

  • Cutting government spending now, Paul McCulley argues, is "ludicrous"... like putting an anorexic patient on a diet. When the private sector is reducing debt as it is now, the last thing the government should do is cut spending, he says, because government spending is the only thing that can keep the economy afloat.  [View news story]

    Well, after reading your comments I would say we are close to being kindred spirits. In some areas I would say our differences are nuances or differences in timing.

    I do think we need to spend money now. It should be on investments which include infrastructure and basic research. I'm not sure what's more important, but, we're falling behind in both. This may require some deficit spending in the short term, and large long term investments within a balanced budget down the road.

    YOUR RIGHT ON TARGET!

  • Regulatory uncertainty is a phony explanation for the U.S. jobs problem that reflects the unwinding of the financial collapse and resulting lack of demand, a new study says. Paul Krugman chimes in: "So Republican assertions about what ails the economy are pure fantasy... [But much] of the GOP reject[s] climate science and even the theory of evolution, so why expect evidence to matter for [its] economic views?"  [View news story]

    If you agree that reasonable regulations are needed in certain areas of commerce. In fairness, I apologize.

    I do not believe that government will provide everything for you in life. I do believe that it is the responsibility of government to meet its obligations under the Constitution that Consservatives very frequently and conveniently forget, to "Promote the General Welfare". That does not necessarily include the "broken" welfare system we have today which traps people into poverty. But, never-the-less, there should be a social safety net that helps people in need and requires/helps them avail themselves of those services for as short a time as possible.

    After forty years of vigilant service to this county in the department of defense, I never take our freedom for granted.

  • The Greek government OKs its "austerity budget" with a deficit at 8.5% of 2011 GDP - short of EU/IMF targets of 7.6% of GDP. Next year's budget should get closer to the mark: 6.8% of GDP, vs. a targeted 6.5%. The Greek Finance Ministry considered laying off 30K government workers.  [View news story]
    My God Wyatt, I don't agree with some of the S#!+ you come up with, but, I always chuckle my ass off. And certain elements always ring true.

    For what its worth the cops could put a gun to my head and I wouldn't vote for a police levy. Er, well maybe if the guns loaded.

    In any event.....I don't vote for them.

  • The details are coming in on how Pres. Obama plans to pay for his $447B jobs plan: ending tax breaks for energy companies, people making more than $200,000/year, and private-equity funds. These are familiar talking points, and a plan relying on tax increases and no spending cuts likely gives Republicans the ammunition to thwart Obama yet again.  [View news story]
    Ritalin is sooooo 1970's Joe. I'm on much better S#!+ than that!!!!

  • President Obama's $450B jobs plan may wind up pushing us into recession rather than pulling us out, says John Carney. Following his logic, the crux of the plan is to have government spend more and tax less. However, if people fear increased government spending will result in higher taxes, they may wind up saving more than the government spends, in anticipation of the taxes - which could lead to economic contraction.  [View news story]
    So, it was for political benefit and not because the lies were being uncovered. That's just what Hitler would say!

    "And I remember that even after the truth became known the grand jury still continued to harass White House staff for political gain."

    The disclosure was made in a newspaper column entitled "Mission to Niger" written by Robert Novak, and published on July 14, 2003. So much for your truth. Robert Novak was hardly a liberal.

    I know the character of people like Dick Cheney, Carl Rove, and Scooter Libby. It doesn't take much to see through their lies. It is challenging to keep up with all of them though.

  • What elephant in the room? Pres. Obama's new deficit reduction proposal reportedly will leave out changes to Social Security, and may exclude any increase in the Medicare eligibility age. Obama "does not believe that Social Security is a driver of our near- and medium-term deficits," the White House says.  [View news story]
    The Republicans keep saying it because its in their game plan to keep the American people scared S#!+le$$. They've been doing it since 9/11, scare, scare, scare. It's worked for them ever since. I guess when the American people snap out of the fear ridden stupor we will start to be a great nation again. Or we will cower in a dark corner of the basement at RNC headquarters only to leave long enough to vote for these fear spreading chuckleheads.
