Grungehamster: In other words, quoting Lincoln about the need to cut the deficit but leaving out the part where he says raising revenues needs to be involved.
Dr Dreidel: Grungehamster: In other words, quoting Lincoln about the need to cut the deficit but leaving out the part where he says raising revenues needs to be involved.And that one story highlights to two major problems with today's GOP:-the need to compare macroeconomics to micro (in fairness to Abe the Gangly, macro wasn't as well-described 160 years ago)-the inability to use the revenue side of the ledger (in Lincoln's day, it wasn't the GOP; today it is)

Malacon: Gyrfalcon: Dear JohnWelcome to 2013 and instant fact-checking.Someone mentioned this a while back, but I think it bears repeating [bearsrepeating.jpg]In the game the GOP plays doesn't care about fact checking. They say whatever the fark they want because the derp brigade will eat it up and put their fingers in their ears when fact checkers point out that they're lying.Once they get it out there, it's out there. Can't put the genie back in the bottle, and all that.
