    The economic problem lately, is: following stimuli that ran out in 2010 but did avert a full blown SECOND Pub Great Depression, conservative fear mongering about the big "debt crisis", "common sense", and their mythic ability of "jobs, jobs, jobs" brought conservative electoral gains- austerity and spending cuts, and double dip recesions and fears, especially in Ireland,Greece, Spain, the Uk, and the USA now. And yes, the resemblances all over ARE REAL, and you can LEARN from them...

    How 'bout some real jobs bills, party of NO!- The French may help all of us out of this. Sweden has the most successful recovery, dittoheads, so cut the crappe about EU Socialists- which you ALSO don't understand LOL.

    The UK is back in recession. They put the conservatives in power and went the austerity route.

    Whether or not austerity is a good idea in the long run may be worthy of discussion, but what is inarguable is,

    austerity is not a plan for job creation, as the GOP persists in lying about.

    Any rational RW thought out there? I didn't think so.

    There are two kinds of "Republicans"- the Mega rich, short sighted, greedy Pubs, and the huge crowd incredibly ignorant, now propagandized or bought off dupes, ie, you morons. See sig pp1 and 4.

    I see Obama is really starting to point this out.

    I know, let's cut taxes on the bloated rich and destroy Medicare! How dumb can you get?
