    Now is the WRONG time to be pushing austerity measures here in U.S.! It ain't rocket science...

    Clearly, we just don't spend enough money...money we don't have.

    In the recovering Great Bush Recession - you are exactly right. We need to spend more and hire more. Now's not the time to be worried about debt.

    Tell you what...why don't YOU spend more and hire more?

    I realize your collectivist mentality won't allow you to see the truth, that all this spending and meddling, from both parties, is the real cause of exacerbating and prolonging the recession. No, that would mean you couldn't continue to demand other people's money. Can't have that, can we?

    That's just crazy teabagger mentality. Europe is proving what many of us learned in economics - and from the history of the Great Depression.

    What's the matter? Not willing to put YOUR money where you mouth is?

    That your willing to allow those yet to be born to bear the burden of your largess is very telling...and rather disgusting.

    Lastly, until you're willing to look at the history of economics outside of the progressive/Keynesian mindset, there is really no point in attempting to educate you. Needless to say, you have much to learn. Good luck with all that.
