  1. JustinTheSkeptic says:

    The answer is a different answer. One that the esablishment doesn’t like, one that will only give an answer to years of calculation, a system whereby people eat their own food, drink their own fruits, and live to feel independent of government intervention. If this sounds familiar, if this sounds different it is only because modern day technology can afford us the privlege, and for that matter can afford everyone the privlege, collectively of saying fuck-you. The only stipulation is that you have no stipulations.

    By government I mean governments that have no idea what the local people need and want…what si wrong with that????

    Tell me. How do so many smart people with todays “touchy” medium, not feel the pain of the people? Don’t you even realize?

    Maybe people have heard of the Laffer curve? Laffer curve can at least predict tax revenue given a general rate. Deficits are the whimsy of our ruling class. There is clearly no laffer curve like relation between taxes and deficits. If there had been, deficits would have never gotten so ridiculous.

  6. The Laffer curve?

    There is a good discussion here about where it actually works.

    But the way Laffer *and Reagan) sold it to the country was misleading — tax cuts it did not pay for themselves

    Why is it that Jon Stewart is the only one to point out the the obvious hypocrisy of the Republicans?

    You need to add Democrats to the end of that sentence as he likes to point their hypocrisy out too. Can we get beyond this partisn crap to realize that we’re getting played by both sides or are we too busy picking sides and shaking pom poms? I don’t see anything to cheer for with either party and a lot to be angry about.

    Newt is asking us to adopt the Chinese economic policy toward cap gains? Ha. As Stewart says, “In order to fight the socialists, we must become Communists.” Brilliant. Of course, as a guy who has been married to the same woman for 40 years, I’m still getting used to Newt, thrice married, lecturing me about “family values” and opining ad nauseum about how the “gay and lesbian secular state” is going to undermine our “sacred institutions, ” like marriage. If you could make this stuff up, you’d be, well, maybe writing for Jon Stewart.
