I didn't think the Libertarian Party would win but "Just walk away and there will be an end to the horror" was a pretty effective campaign platform.


I'm sorry, you seem to have confused left-wing libertarians with laissez-faire, right-wing, social dominating, corporate cocksucking assholes..

President Barack Obama, Timothy Geithner

(CNSNews.com)- In the 39 months since Barack Obama took the oath of office as president of the United States, the federal government's debt has increased by $5,027,761,476,484.56.


Despite clear facts, you're likely to receive one of the following responses

1. That's a right wing talking point
2. That is Bush's debt carried over
3. Cheney said deficits dont matter
4. *insert n/10 troll rating*

Heron: A weak dollar doesn't hurt most citizens because we aren't seeing any price inflation. It doesn't hurt poor people because income support is adjusted in real terms. It is sort of a hassle for people who travel, but due to the economy, the only people traveling a great deal are folks who really don't worry much about their spending. A slow weakening of the dollar right now is a good thing; causing it is one of the reasons why we've been keeping interest rates so low. It will mean a transfer of debt away from the US, and it will bolster our rather anemic recovery


Is it possible once, just once for an armchair Keynesian economist to admit that they dont know anything about economics?

A weak dollar leads to expensive oil which raises the price of everything. If you think stagnant wages suck it is compounded by a rise in prices

These derp articles tend to be dishonest about that.

7th Cavalry didn't exist until after the war. Custer brought them lots of glamour as well. Nothing like having a certified war hero leading the fight against boredom on the plains.

They drank alot though,. All except Custer. The rest drank whiskey like it was going out of style. And yes, Custer was a Democrat with ambitions for office had he survived the Little Big Horn. To be honest, this idiot's comparison isn't exactly a bad thing, because Custer really was decent at what he did until the end. He kinds farked that one up.

For this alone, he deserves our votes in 2012.

Wow... I've heard some quality Right Wing whining about Obama getting Bin Laden after the right ignored him for eight years, but this takes the cakes.

I know you're a troll account, but ask yourself:

beta_plus has a point. Imagine if Raúl or Fidel sent a helicopter full of paramilitary troops to whatever gated community in Florida this repeated terrorist lives (under U.S. protection) to avenge the 78 civilians he killed by blowing up Cubana flight 455. We harbor terrorists, shouldn't other countries have a right to land commandos on our soil and execute them without our consent?

Rincewind53: hubiestubert: jim32rr: SilentStrider: People forget that, before that fateful day with the 7th Cavalry, Custer was actually a hero at the battle of Gettysburg. His cavalry forces managed to successfully prevent Confederate reinforcements from aiding Pickett's charge.

History can be a biatch, we do not always remember the good/great things done by a person.

An old Scot and a young Scot were sitting in the pub talking. The old man says to the young man; "Son, look out the window. You see that stone fence stretchin' out 'cross the moor as far as yer eye can see? Well I built that fence with me own two hands. But, do they call me MacGregor the fence builder? Nooooo."

"Now ya take a look up at the bar. See the perfectly constructed thing of beauty stretchin' across this great hall? Well, I built that bar with me own two hands. But, do they call me MacGregor the bar builder? Noooo."

"Now take a look toward the sea. Do you see that magnificent pier, sturdy and straight, unmoving againt the sea and all her wrath? Well, I built that pier with me own two hands. But, do they call me MacGregor the pier builder? Noooo."

Then MacGregor leans in close to the young man and whispers....

"But ya fark one goat..."

Isaac Asimov used to tell a version of that joke in an urban setting and end it with "But I suck just one cock..."


I hadn't heard of the Asimov variation of that joke before; the existence of this otherwise useless thread (really, the GOP is still trying to sell the "Obama hasn't done anything" narrative?) has now been justified.

That article debunks a comment Romney made about Obama increasing the debt more than all other presidents combined. Anyone with a 2nd grade knowledge of math knows that he started with 10Tn, there's 5Tn now and that 10>5.

On day 1, Obama started with appx 10Tn in debt and there's almost $16Tn today. Even if you dont even count 2009 since that is Bush's budget, you'll still have to add Obama's budget for the first year of the next president's term.

In other words, Obama's budgetary responsibility for his first term should extend from 1 Jan 2010 to 31 Dec 2013 and at a proposed deficit of about $1.3Tn/yr x 4 years still is round about $5-6Tn

All of this talk about deficit reduction is pretty laughable, since Republicans can't talk about tax increases without committing political suicide within their own party.

Once they're able to get serious about tackling the deficit from both sides of the equation, you get back to us on that.

Except oil prices are rising globally, meaning it's a market issue not a US price issue. Or do you seriously think that a weak dollar rises the price of oil in Euros? But hey; you let ideological prejudice determine your economic opinions instead of looking at the numbers, or reading the actual work of the economists you trash, so obviously you know more about this than I do.

Heron: Except oil prices are rising globally, meaning it's a market issue not a US price issue.


It is when the dollar is the world reserve currency by which each global commodity exchange bases its prices.

A Honus Wagner baseball card just sold for $1.2M. It is perhaps the rarest and most valuable sports card the world has ever known. If I came across a warehouse that had 100,000 Wagner cards and brought them to market, I could not then turn around and demand $1.2M for each of them. Right now, I can go to an oil baron and but a bbl of crude for something like $110 USD. If I go ahead and print $3Tn more dollars, he's going to want more of them or is going to give me less oil for the same price because of the reduced purchasing power. This is the consequence of the "weak dollar"

I've read Keynes. You can debate all day long about the merits and shortcomings of the General Theory but one thing that he argued against which you bootlickers still havent caught onto is that of a state plummeting interest rates and printing its way out of structural debt and deficit.

Lando Lincoln: All of this talk about deficit reduction is pretty laughable, since Republicans can't talk about tax increases without committing political suicide within their own party.

Once they're able to get serious about tackling the deficit from both sides of the equation, you get back to us on that.


The president's own tax policy would generate $40bn against a projected 10 year deficit of $13,000Bn

Thats 4/1300
Thats 1/325
Thats less than %0.3 of the deficit

Stupid is bringing forth a deficit reduction problem that claims 0.3% is what is holding us back from fiscal solvency.

Great, thanks. Now bold the part of the quote where it says the bit about holding us back from fiscal solvency. All I see is a bunch of statements you yourself were writing earlier about this proposal will bring in $47 Billion dollars. Nothing about the fiscal solvency.

Despite clear facts, you're likely to receive one of the following responses

1. That's a right wing talking point
2. That is Bush's debt carried over
3. Cheney said deficits dont matter


Merely mentioning possible responses does not actually refute them. Please explain in detail why each of those is flatly not true.

1. Are you honestly denying that that is indeed a right-wing talking point?

2. Do you deny that Bush kept the spending for two wars off of the books, which Obama put back on, causing the debt under him to appear to sharply rise when in fact what really happened was that prior debt was suddenly revealed to exist? There was indeed some rise under Obama, but nowhere near as much as under Bush (who really did borrow more from foreign governments in just his first term [not counting any of FY2009, 2008, 2007, nor 2006] than all prior presidents combined!).

3. Do you deny that Cheney said that? What he actually said was that Reagan proved that deficits don't matter. Are you now denying Reagan?
