How did you guys get from this cartoon to fighting about religion? Funny cartoon Clay....
Our spending trend is very unhealthy, because we're obligated to more debt than we've got incoming revenue to cover it...with no plan to change our behavior. You sound like the patient that ignores his doctors advice against smoking and drinking and bad food with no exercise. "You've been telling me for years I'm gonna kill over one day...when? Why hasn't it happened?" He knows it happens because it happens to everyone that lives that way. The same goes for us and our unhealthy spending habits. Can I give you a date? No. But you've got to be a fool to believe that this means that it won't occur. Easy123 I could give you more numbers to make my point but it wouldn't matter. You're a waste of breath.
No one has done anything to Obama that the Democratic minority didn't do to Bush...what a bunch of babies. As for your debt arguement, the past cannot be compared to the present or the future because we are both starting a new entitlement program AND retiring more workers onto the Social Security roles than ever before. We will literally have more people retired than working! It's a disaster waiting to happen. When you overload a financial system it always collapses (hence my U.S.S.R. analogy). We've seen this before. We don't have to debate it because we watched it happen to the Socialist in the 80's. But, you're a loser with a revolutionary agenda. The facts don't matter...because the end justifies the means. And that's right Easy, you've got nothing...no facts, no understanding, no education, only some socialist rhetoric that you found on Google mixed with a few insults and condescending talk. It's what liars do when they're faced with the truth. People like you where saying that you could give a house to almost anyone because human nature says that they will take care of that house. The fedaral government was backing the loans anyway, so what could go wrong? Now I'm hearing this stupid we can print money until eternity ends and it won't matter. People who oppose it just hate the poor and women and minorities. We'll unfortunately numbers aren't debatable. If I spend more than I'm worth I'll go broke. The same is true for this country. We are only worth so much, and right now we're really pushing the envelope. If people began to get the idea that we are just going to blow any investments made in us they'll take their cash elsewhere. Remember "capitol always flow to where it's treated best." And right now we're treating our capital more like "crap-ital."
Well as always Easy123 you've said nothing at all in response to my post. Clay, your picture seems to imply that opposition to the presidents approach is somehow un-american. But, what if the president is wrong? Do any of you liberals ever stop and ask yourselves that question? Obama is neither a king or a god. He is fallible just like the rest of us. All of this whining about his opposition shows no regard for the wisdom behind the "checks and balances" system in our democracy. You guys were glad to have it when Bush was in and we are glad to have it today. Just remember, things looked really rosy for the Republicans in 2005. When, not if, but when things turn on your boys...you'll be glad that this system is still in place as well.
WHOA WHOA WHOA!...Easy you are so ignorant that I don't even know where to start. So I'll keep this simple..Our dollar trades on the world market (Just like oil and aapl[apple]). The value of 20 shares of Apple stock isn't what it was 6 months ago because the perception is that their running out of fresh ideas. Investors are pulling their monies making "your" 20 shares worth way less than it was at $700 per share. Our dollar works the same way. The only reason we haven't had massive inflation is the global slowdown. The dollar was still the safest haven out there (due to our perceived stability) and as a result continually investable. That will change when things improve. You are going to get some REAL inflation once investors start to develop an appetite for risk. So your "we don't pay our debt to the world" statement is so incredibly ingnorant that it scares me that you're allowed to have an opinion in this country.If I'm paying my bills based on the 20 shares of Apple stock that I owned at $700.00 per share, my ability to continue to pay my bills is seriously hampered once that stock loses perceived value and trades at $500.00 per share (as it does today). Your statement is the equivalent of saying "well we don't bay our bills to Apple". Stupid, stupid, stupid! Man, you liberals are just swimming in ignorance.
You ever heard of the U.S.S.R Easy123? Sheesh! Talk about your revisionist history. The value of our dollars are all perception based...sure we can keep printing, but if the world percieves our paper to be worthless what does it matter? Remember, these are some of the same people that said that our housing values would always rise because they had always risen. They (the fed) ignored the warning signs there as well, and look where that got us.
So the democrats party line now is that Romney's a liar...got it. Funny how Obama waits for him to leave the room to start those accusations. He had a chance to call him a liar to a face during the debate...but he wasn't even man enough to look him in the eyes. Talking behind peoples back and being unable to make eye contact is usually the charectoristic that we assign to people we can't trust. But as usual, the democrats and their storm trooper media allies control the narrative. That's ok...America isn't as dumb as you think Clay.
Can you say "exposed?" I've been saying that this guy was a phony, empty suit for 5 years! THAT WAS EPIC! I saw a post on facebook that said it all: " I sure hope Obamacare covers butt-whippings!" LMAO
alprova! I never thought I'd find a pro-obama blogger that made you look smart:) until happywithbulbs but at least you addressed my statements...so how do you create jobs? I'm glad you asked. From past business experience I can tell you that one thing is absolutely true about hiring and job creation. If you understand this, everything else makes sense: HIRING NEW PERSONNEL IS ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY THE VERY LAST THING ANY BUSINESS DOES. YOU HAVE TO OVERWHELM THEM WITH DEMAND BEFORE THEY'LL EVEN CONSIDER IT. They will improve efficiencies, update equipment, bring on temporary workers, ANYTHING ELSE, to avoid bringing on a full time employee. One time stimuluses don't work because they just aren't investible enough. Imagine you own the deli across the street from the new building I used in my analogy earlier. That project may take around a year to complete. It will bring some dollars in your door, but what incentive do you have to open up a new location? None. You'll bring on enough help to handle the one year rush it creates, but afterwards, you lay those people off and go back to business as usual until something else forces you out of that position. Business owners have no other way to pay their bills beyond their business. Hiring is not charity. A lower tax rate, however, frees up billions and billions of dollars around the nation that were otherwise budgeted for payment to the government. It's those billions, combined with a comfortable business "environment" that causes the nationwide "overwhelming" effect that leads to job growth. Will every business use the cut to create jobs? No, but many will, and it's those real dollars that mean the difference between economic growth and our current economic state of stagnation that we're currently suffering under. I really can't answer every statement that you guys made to me because, well frankly, I've got a hot wife to hang out with. But I will end it with this: happywithbulbs I don't look down on everybody...just you.
Yeah, that's right. You don't care. I asked that way because I just wanted to hear you say it. You don't know how to create a job and you don't care and guess what? You support a guy who looks at the world just like you. So stop pretending that you care. Stop pretending that this economy is about anything other than the fact that this nation was fooled into electing the worst possible candidate to solve our problems that they possibly could have. Stop blaming the depths of the crisis, and the republicans, and the fact that you were born on a rainy day. You don't care. And that's why you and your president need to get out of the way.
