New article that perfectly describes our current fiscal situation, and the only way out of it.

Can We Save the Goose that Lays the Golden Eggs? by Bill Frezza

Excerpt:
"The giveaway game isn't working any more, and the reason is simple. The cupboard is bare. It's not only bare; it's been hocked - along with the kitchen, the house, the car, the foundation, and the neighborhood. Our government is being kept alive right now on printing press money, and we all know how that story ends. This means that the majority can no longer deceive itself into believing that either party can deliver on new promises. It is even beginning to dawn on a growing minority that old promises, specifically the ones underlying middle class welfare schemes like Social Security and Medicare, are unlikely to be kept either."

:agree:
The goose is not only cooked, it's burnt beyond recognition.

This article is nothing more than flame rhetoric surrounding this ...

Businesses are sitting on enough capital to fund a return to growth but they have gone on strike, just as they did after Herbert Hoover and Franklin Roosevelt teamed up to drive them into the bunkers last time an easy-money speculative orgy turned spectacularly sour.

... just the usual Tea Party Obama bashing and now the GOP *Pledge to America* Plan ... flame-on right-wing 'fringists ... just stay out of the way ...

The bashing is working:

From Ohio to Iowa, there’s a yawning stretch of heartland states whose citizens voted for Obama and congressional Democrats in 2008, but who have lost patience waiting for an as-yet undelivered economic revival that was first promised in 2006, and then two years later. Now, they look set to stampede toward the out-of-power party.

Latest estimates I saw over the weekend have the Dems losing 48 seats in the House and 7 in the Senate.

Problem is, is that the (R)'s are now letting us in on their 19 month *secret for recovery* known as the GOP *Pledge to America* as we go into elections ... listening to (R) Pence yesterday on Meet the Press shows us they have no plan other than to babble-on ... didn't even answer one question about his own stuff ... same as every (R) ... next please ...

Well, to borrow a line from a famous idiot, "You have to vote for them, to see what the plan is". :laughing:

Lefty pundit E.J. Dionne says that the northeast is SO Democratic that it will be the Dems "firewall" in the upcoming election. We'll see.
Would that be the northeast that NJ is a part of, that elected Christy? :devil:

Not my fault the whole world sees pubs as capitalist pigs....:D
A subscribership and media following totaling 20,000 hardly represents the 'whole world'.

It's not the dems fault then that they are viewed by conservatives as greedy blood sucking bastards that only want to keep the poor blacks in their place so they can siphon entitlements to them off into their own pockets?

Well, at least the disciples of Karl Marx. What do you anti-capitalists think would be the method for supplying 6 billion people with the things they need and want if not capitalism? You bash it daily, but you also use it. Give me a reasonable alternative.
