The House has not said it will not raise the debt ceiling. It must and will.

It must not. America's future hangs in the balance. Twenty-five percent of GDP going to government is not sustainable. If we do not get spending under 20%, this country will not survive.

“You are correct Peet, except the Latin is idiota and the Greek is idotes”

Thanks, but I’m the “donkey-like” (asinine) guy — I think Houghton M. was the idio* greek/latin poster. No biggie, though; my middle name could be “confused.” ☺

What school of economic thought — Keynesian, supply-side or monetarist — says raising taxes in a slumping economy is the recipe for a return to prosperity? There is no such school.

Technically, Keynes was against this, but in practice, Keynesian economists have never seen a tax hike they didn't love, regardless of where we are in the economic cycle.

“Keynesian economists have never seen a tax hike they didn’t love.”

In Krugman’s case, he’s never seen a tax hike that he thought was big enough.

"The GOP has become a cult" that has replaced reason with "feverish" and "cockamamie beliefs," writes Richard Cohen of The Washington Post.

Sounds like it has been awhile since Richard `got lucky`

The idea that you can obligate others to finance the pursuit of a war on human success--which is what redistribution of wealth schemes ultimately reflect;--and then accuse them of causing a crisis when they refuse to cooperate in the confiscation of the fruits of their labor--is par for the course of ideological confrontation over the past century.

Enough really is enough. The Left does not understand economics. The Left embraces economic fallacies that suit its ideological wish lists--its dreams of a world that somehow vindicates the make believe world of "Human equality," where those who out produce others are seen as villains exploiting the less successful; where people who simply want to maintain the cultural heritage that their ancestors achieved over many generations of struggle are treated as the enemy of anyone on the planet who lacks pride in his or her own heritage; where the ultimate goal is a humanist project, harnessing the same hubris as with Nimrod at ancient Babel, to destroy all nations in a World-wide tyranny--the ultimate example of Totalitarian madness--called World Government.

Enough is certainly enough. This war on actual human achievement, on the realities of Man & Nature, as God created them, has been tolerated for far too long. People need to understand the game--driven by fantasy, compulsion & hatred--indeed, the furthest qualities in the world from the feigned "altruism," its perpetrators claim, and demand that it stop.

For more on the Babel analogy: Return To Babel?.

For a better understanding of why the Keynesian folly in Washington has not contributed to improving the employment picture--as witness this morning's data: Economics Of A Sociopath.

Enough is enough! It is not rendered holy by the pontifications of journalistic apologists.

I thought the health care bill was going to be the game changer that saved us tons of money, reduced the debt, put folks back to work and cured global warming.

Now in addition, these same folks say the only cure to spendaholism is more tax?

Can I go to an enablers meeting?
