    Oh, you mean that time when two Republican members of Congress decided to write their own intentionally shitty 56-page versions of the president's as-of-yet nonexistent budget in attempt to pass it off as Obama's, just to prove that it would be solidly struck down? That shit was disgusting and probably illegal.

    SORRY>>>NO GRAPH...I suck at cut and paste...
    Actually, you're quite good at it. I'm impressed by how you can form entire arguments out of it.

    You are 100% correct. The machine of government must keep running. But if it would just run even remotely efficiently. But we are being absolutely buried in debt. Hell, the canadians are coming over the border to buy in record numbers because the dollar is so weak. Here's an example. I was going to buy a new bike a few months ago...I didn't. The dollar is so weak compared to the yen that the price of the bike was too expensive. Debt kills.

    Yes, the dollar is amazingly weak. It used to be the strongest currency, but now it's #6. It's even behind the Swiss Franc! A clear sign of monetary policy failure. Any ideas on what we can do about it?

    Yup...but we won't do it. Too many people will be affected by shear common sense. What do you do when you (a business) run out of, or need, money? You borrow it. What happens to the value of your business when you have too much debt? You BS looks like shit and your ratios aren't good. Banks eventually won't loan anymore money to you because the likelihood of being repaid is lessened to a large degree. What does any sane business person do? Cut expenses and get things back on track as best as possible. What does the government do? Print money (or bonds), monetize the debt, devalue the dollar, so it takes more dollars of which we have none of to repay loans or bonds. Basically polticians are fucking buying votes with bullshit programs to specific groups and it's that simple. ALL POLITICIANS are guilty. If you ever shake hands with a politician, you better count your fingers.

    He also lied to us about not being in a re-session until it was almost time for the 08 election then he came out and told the truth. Fucked us over that.

    Bush doubled our national debt by throwing all our money at a war which accomplished nothing. He also set our education system back a ton, throwing Europe way ahead of us in education and causing us to lose worldwide leader positions in research and such.

    He also rewarded the rich with tax cuts, and praised their efforts to move jobs overseas, while wages for ordinary working Americans stagnated, and inflation and unemployment increased.

    Anybody advocating austerity as a means of getting the US economy back on track, need look no further than its recent failures in Europe, primarily the UK. All it leads is to rising unemployment.

    Obama's stimulus plan in the wake of 08 was far from perfect: it was too small, and was too watered down with tax cuts and pork programs instead of just focusing on raw infrastructure investment, but nevertheless, if it wasn't there, the economy would be even worse off than it is today.
