DrPainMD: cc_rider: So, "austerity" really don't work after all? Huh. Who woulda thunk it?It does work. It's just that the mainstream media (along with most politicians [even those who support austerity]) is not honest about what the effects of austerity are or what the effects of continued stimulus are. Granted, most politicians and journalists aren't very smart, and almost none of them understand economics. Our only two choices (and it's been like this since Nixon was in office) are crash now or crash harder later. Stimulus just pushes the problem into the future, and guarantees that the inevitable crash will be worse. If debt-based spending could fix the economy, it would already be fixed. Just look at all the stimulus since 1980, and it hasn't accomplished anything other than burden our kids with debt that they will not be able to pay.[psychicinsights.files.wordpress.com image 400x309]Look at all that stimulus.
evil saltine: fusillade762: Riiiight.Limbaugh Promotes A New Myth: Greeks Gave Themselves HIV For Welfare MoneyHowever, the WHO report is incorrect. The WHO's source for this figure is a 2011 study in the British medical journal The Lancet. Here is what the Lancet study actually says:An authoritative report described accounts of deliberate self-infection by a few individuals to obtain access to benefits of €700 per month and faster admission onto drug substitution programmes. These programmes offer access to synthetic opioids and can have waiting lists of 3 years or more in urban areas. [emphasis added]Somehow, the "few individuals" mentioned by The Lancet became "half of new HIV infections" in the WHO report.Fark keeps kicking out the link, "no content-type header"http://mediamatters.org/blog/2013/11/25/limbaugh-promotes-a-new-myth- g reeks-gave-themse/197046I don't see how that's relevant.

RedPhoenix122: Obviously the solution is to cut government funding for health programs.
