pr Wrote: Well Foxxbait you might be correct about MMT or you might be wrong. I suggest you are nothing more than a conservative troll (from TX, ha, ha) and I'm sure CBB will answer all your concerns.Interesting, a troll calling me a troll. Lemm'e guess, the extent of your knowledge on economics and monetary systems comes from MSNBC and whatever you can imagine at the time.
In the mean time YOU should reflect on the real reason this country faces so many economic problems! HINT it's right wing, conservative Republicans, not unlike yourself, that are directly responsible.
I was trying to address monetary theory with out getting into the brass tacks of our current economic dilemma, without getting into some flame match with a hopelessly misinformed partisan lunatic, but since you drug your self out from under the proverbial bridge, sure, I'll play your game.
You say our current economic problems comes form Republicans and Conservatives ? But you offer up no evidence to your ridiculous one dimensional assertion ? Ok, your'e a Liberal, a fairly simple creature intellectually (And yet over educated thus unqualified to join the Republican party)so I'm going to assume your'e either referring to the Republicans not working with Obama ( and by that giving him free reign to damage our economy even further, OR your referring to the dreaded " Great Bush Recession ".
First off, Obama had two years of unfettered free reign to turn this economy around, a 800 billion "stimulus" that stimulated nothing but huge NEW structural debt, not jobs. His Green Jobs plan, so desperately inane and poorly thought out, comparable to a sixth graders science project, he was going to spend billions and billions to build a manufacturing base, ( that Obama's donors ran ) for a product that wasn't in demand. And absolutely NO thought was given to the Chinese and their ability to undercut manufacturing on photo voltaic panels.
He gave FISKER automotive a 500 million dollar loan guarantee, to build cars no one wanted, they blew through over a hundred million of that cash, and then ..............well things aren't looking good for old FISKER. Go Figure. Oh and did I mention they are a DUTCH Company ?
The " Great Bush Recession " ? LOL !! No, the Consequence of the " Democrat mandated Sub-Prime Bubble". Bill Clintons 1995 Executive ORDERS that comprised " The Affordable Home Ownership Strategy " reduced standards on Lenders across the board(and pushed by Bush on national TV), but it also gave them a guaranteed buyer. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, who got new and corrupt leadership from 1993 to 1998 thanks to Bill Clinton. Franklin Raines, misreported Billions in profit to meet his executive bonus targets. Jamie Gorelick, plus many of their board members had to be changed in order for their decades long standards of buying PRIME LOANS could be changed.
Oh but it was the "eeebil banks" and Wall Street.......not really. Fannie Mae invented the Mortgage Backed Security, and in 1997 started turning crap loans into securities by bundling them with good paper, and pushing them out into the market as toxic securities.
By the time 2008 rolled around, after years of the Democrats fighting off Bush's and the Republicans attempts to regulate these corrupted GSE's, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac held over 5 TRILLION in sub-prime, Alt-E or just generally crap mortgages or securities backed by these mortgages.
Anyway, I encourage you to play this game with me, so I can expose your ignorance publicly. C'mon, explain your silly post that called me out as a troll. Explain your desperate assertion that after 4.5 years of Obama, it's still someone elses fault.
Try all you want you ain't gonna convince a heathen soul here that the Republican party is a good thing.

One can only hope.

That be where we built the first plutonium bomb. Thousands of gallons of radioactive liquids are leaking into the soil and we have no clue how to proceed.
Mom(Mother Nature) wants us to ask the question "Can that old broad dressed in fog tear apart a mile wide section of an above ground pipe line?"
But let's make this thread a practice section for spinning nature into an anti-Obama spinathon.
Obama caused this because God wants to show the un-Americans amongst us how to fend for oneself. Now send some aid please.
Birds of a feather Balkanize together. OK, so I warped an old Greek saying. Sue me.
I think it is destined to become a 600 square mile no go zone for humans. A Chernoble park for us to not enjoy.
They just won't learn. I'll bet Megyn got told not correct a mans thinking or she would be fired.
Not really. PAC's here said term limits would make the corruption process more burdensome. Well, they said "effective lobbying" but you get the drift.
Yup, and the Moral Majority which was neither moral nor a majority.

And this is why law enforcement is against ending the war on drugs. They like having their little parties stealing cars, money and houses form the citizens. Then they wonder why so many don't trust the cops. Some things just don't make sense.
