    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    It's all of this left wing socialist policies by president Obama. Now the USA's credit rating is AA+, and the only countries with AAA bond ratings are Germany, France, Finland, Sweden, Canada, Austria and the Netherlands. Those countries must be the last few bastions of true free-market conservativism.

    I'll give you a few hours while I go work on the 'vette to go over everything you've learned in your discussions with us, and come up with a better nit to pick. Your statement is sorely lacking in matters of the obvious. Quite frankly, to anyone with an ounce of sense, your post sounds absolutely ridiculous. Ridiculous to such a degree that if I just flat out debunked it now, I'd feel like the mean kid busting the special ed kid's chops between classes. Your "logic", if that's what you call it, is missing something so fundamental to economics, it's actually fundamental to mathematics. Take a few hours, read your statement, and revise. Good luck getting over your socialist slant long enough to obey the laws economics during your postulations.
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."
    —Thomas Paine, Common Sense

    The stupid SOB along with his whole economic team need to go into hiding for a couple of months, and let the Tea Party Repubs in the House right the ship.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Do you expect him to man up and to be honest about anything

    Wrong:

    Those countries economic polices are vastly different. They do not spend like drunken sailors. They spend peanuts on their military and depend on us to protect their cowardly ass. Conservatism has nothing to do with it..... "It Is Economics and Spending Stupid"

    Or even simpler yet. It is understanding a Balance Sheet and being able to infer said sheets ramifications on the future.

    hussein is doing exactly what he said he would do. His mentor said that you have to tear a country down in order to rebuild it in your image!

    If they just let the country default, none of this would have happened.
