    Come on everybody, we are going to spend our way out of excessive debt by borrowing more. To enable that masterful plan, we are going to create more wealth by printing more money. Can't you people understand simple economics?

    We're not all Keynesians, Sir. :p

    Rush has got most of it right but he is off target on the issue of the CEO's extravagant decorations of his office to the tune of $1.2 million. Obama hired the same deocrator for his office and spent $100,000. Another big difference is that the TARP money was supposed to be used to free up credit and not piss it away on bonuses and furniture.

    TARP should not exist in the first place. Only a fool thinks that that money will ever be used for the "little people."

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Keynesian is a school of Economic thought based on the ideas of John Maynard Keynes. Basically Keynesian Economics argues that the State should should stimulate economic growth and improve stability in the private sector — through manipulating interest rates, increasing taxation and public works projects.

    Keynesian Economics played a lot into the New Deal...a proven failure. It's also a school of Economic thought highly rejected by many other highly respected Economic schools of thought, like Monetarists (Milton Friedman) and Austrian School or Classical Economists (Friedrich Hayek, Von Mises).

    Read more here. Also, pick up "The Road to Serfdom" by Hayek if you haven't read it, the man will change your life. It's a book on Economics that's suprisingly easy to pick up and read, pretty short in length and you'll be amazed how much of what he described (in 1944, mind you) is actually happening today. Easily one of the best books I've read out here.

    Also anything by Thomas Sowell is a treasure.

    This is Limbaugh's dream for his ratings and relevance.
