Tax cuts for the wealthy! Deregulate the poor investment banks! Invade oil rich countries!
 
2012-06-04 09:26:03 AM  
So, the rich need more tax breaks and they shouldn't have to worry about pesky laws regulating their chemical plants?

Phew! What a breath of fresh air! Those are vibrant, new ideas I can believe in!

I'm looking forward to marketing my own product in the aftermath of this race to the bottom:

Nice to link the main site of the BLS but not the supposed statistics themselves. When I look at the report from May 18th it paints a slightly different picture most importantly it only shows a between 2011 and 2012 and other reports only show between March and April plus it mostly shows improvements including in some of the worst off states like Michigan.

I don't mind the rightwing greenlights so much. It's the derp I hate and the mods should feel bad. Lately all the rightwing greenlights are soooo stupid it's not worth discussing so we end up mocking it. I never thought I would miss the days we debated healthcare reform(before it passed). We had actual discussion.

These pieces of metal appear to be some sort of cutting implement, but for what? On a second glance it appears that the pattern matches a pattern in the door of the White House, so that when the metal is placed inside the door it releases a latch. How curious.

How so? I mean, if Obama is the reason the Euro is in crisis and the Chinese economy is flat-lining, then we may want to think twice before we vote out someone with that kind of power. If, on the other hand, he has little or no influence on these matters, then maybe we should recognize that his policies have kept the US economy afloat while everyone around us flounders. Or, do you want the government to implement austerity, and push the economy back into recession like the Europeans have done?

He does have one Cman on ignore (Cman1982, and its not me, BTW). I am surprised that I have yet to make his list.

Sure, it will...


Just like "Trickle-Down Economics" will definitely work this time. They promise.

A Romney presidency will mean nothing more than a return to the failed policies of the Bush Administration with a bigger emphasis on making sure the power elite continue to mass wealth at the top of the socio-economic ladder.

Great if you happen to be one of the power elite, but shiatty for the rest of us.

Well, FOX was openly blaming him for the recession on November 5th, 2008, so I guess immediately giving all credit/blame to the next president the morning after the election would at least be logically consistent. And that's more than I've seen in the last 4 years from the right, so that's something.

Get us back in Iraq.
Remove two supreme court judges and replace them with fat old white men.
Resurrect OBL.
Bring back DADT.
Reinstate DOMA.
Watch a dictator in Libya slaughter his civilian population while doing nothing about it.
Reduce vaccination programs for children.
Undo CHIP expansion that provides health insurance coverage for 4 million poor children.
Stop working with the government and major banks of Switzerland so we can't find tax evaders as easily.
etc.

AFTER OBAMA, FARKING ROMNEYBOWS
 
2012-06-04 11:19:17 AM  
Trickle down economics is a LIE. There is no proof anywhere that it works. If it did, there would have been millions of jobs created after Bush gave the country's surplus to the rich in 2001. The rich are parasites on the economy, nothing more.
 
2012-06-04 11:23:59 AM  
Can President Romney buy bankrupt states, loot their pension funds and sell off their parts? If not, little would change.

FTFA: the contrasting results between the "blue" and "red" states should provide a stirring endorsement...Gov. Terry Branstad can be proud that Iowa's unemployment rate has dropped from 5.9 to 5.1 percent in a year.

rove.com

Correction: Iowa is a Blue state, and the recovery was well underway in IA before Branstad ever took office thanks to the Stimulus which saved a lot of people's jobs. With the relatively high prices of agrigoods during the recent international food crises, IA never sank that far down. Plus, God likes the fact that gay people can get married there. Karl Rove's own electoral map shows Obama leading by 10 points. Branstad is heading for a big fall--he's working on lowering property taxes and cutting direct funds to city governments, which then can't pay for local upgrade projects. Its pissing everyone off except big business owners.

When I mentioned this to a conservative, his excuse was that Rove doesn't like Romney, so he's going to try to sabotage Romney and skew the numbers away from Mittens.

FTFA: Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder promotes a state budget that's on solid ground for the first time in a decade, and the jobless rate has fallen by 2.2 percentage points.

Correction: Michigan, a Blue state, "which endured a decade-long recession, is continuing a steady climb back to economic health that began late in 2009, economists said. Fulton said Michigan had a 4.4% jump in total employment from the end of 2009 through the end of 2011, but a 6.9% jump in employment in high-wage industries such as auto manufacturing, metalworking, engineering, computers and insurance. Rick Snyder took office on January 1st, 2011. Most of that growth occurred before he was even Governor. And the budget there is still completely farked--they have a $45 million unfunded mandate in their Public School retirement system. This recent influx of money is considered one-time funds.

I could go on, but its clear Mr. Paulson is trying to take steal credit for accomplishments made by other hard-working people in spite of everything his team has done to stop them. In other words, he's a fitting example of today's Republican Party.

he doesn't care. he lives in this fantasy land of a million conspiracies, not off the hook shiat like Birthers and Truthers, and thinks that the country (read: negros) is going to riot is Mitt wins in November. He is definitely one of those party before country type republicans.

If Obama loses, it will be because of the economy. He could have turned it around. He chose not to. There are things that can be done to improve the economy and he chose not to do those things. It really isn't that hard. The economy was booming under Clinton. The economy rebounded from 9/11 under Bush until the home mortgage bubble popped.

Somehow I doubt that as president, Romney will do anything to undo the stifling and penalizing of kenesian economists that his party has engaged in to mask their own failures and shortcomings.

SlothB77: The economy rebounded from 9/11 under Bush


Thanks to enormous military spending. Duh. Government spending is what brings a country out of recession.

If we give Mitt Romney the keys to the White House, he should begin undoing what has been done to stifle and penalize those Americans who know how to make our economy work

Because we all know, the only thing holding back millionaires and billionaires from hiring more people is taxes. If their income was 3 million a year instead of 2.9 million a year, they'd totally hire a bunch of workers.

He refused to seize power from the legislature and just rule by fiat.

The least he could have done would have been to have the Blue Dogs forcibly removed from office in 2009 and dissolve the House after the 2010 elections.

That would have been leadership.
