“Well, there is some hope. I predict that Obama will be a one-term president, the latest incarnation of Jimmy Carter. Of course, he may be replaced by someone even more incompetent than he is but that's the chance we have to take.”

“So which one of the Washington bean counters was it who declared the recession officially "over" back in 2009? It just goes to show how out of touch with reality these expert prognosticators of our economy really are. What we are really witnessing are the inevitable stresses and strains of an advanced capitolist economy that has long been over-productive while clinging to the religion of money. We all know that we can produce everything we need. There is no 'scarcity' in our Western societies any longer. So we created the illusion scarcity by periodically having economic recessions wherein money itself is considered scarce. It is all fraudulent and yet it becomes very real for those sacrificial lambs (the unemployed) who get caught up in the mess.”

“I'd say a lot of the damage has been done already. Want to see something scary? Google the "inflation calculator" website. Then do a search on their simple format and compare the value of a dollar from 1867 to 1967. You will find that there was about 150% inflation in that 100 years. In other words, a dollar in 1867 was equivalent to two and a half dollars in 1967 in terms of buying power. Then do the same calculation for the forty year period from 1967 to year 2007. The inflation rate was SIX HUNDRED PERCENT in forty years. That's right, a dollar in 1967 was worth six of our dollars in 2007. And who was largely responsible for this devaluation of the good old American greenback? The Federal Reserve, that's who, and today it is virtually giving money away to banks---literally at zero percent interest---to devalue the dollar even more. It won't stop until this vile institution is shut down once and for all. There's got to be a better way to stabilize the economy than this fraudulent institution run by former Wall Street fat cats.”

“The real problem here is a lack of regulatory control over the banking industry. No financial institution should be allowed to get "too big to fail." It was banks themselves that protested any government regulation of the arcane derivatives market, following the belief that government should stay out of business. But when these same institutions screw up and expect government to bail them out, government intervention and control becomes not only a necessity but tantamount to an ethical obligation. Taxpayers' money is bailing out private banking institutions. This is fundamentally unfair, unsound and should be avoided in the future by strictly limiting the absolute size of such institutions. But look around and what do we see? Big banks are gobbling up little banks, often with federal bail-out money, and simply getting bigger. Does this indicate that the problem is going away? I don't think so.”

Hassayamper on Sep 30, 2010 at 20:23:41

“No. Remove all regulation, and dismember the government that the big banks use for rent-seeking against all the rest of us. Caveat emptor, and no bailouts for any private company ever.”

“We do need to increase regulation - of the FED!

The FED is the facilitator of our economic problems - we need to audit the fed,and then end it.”

“As a long-term registered Democrat I am thrilled with the growing spectacle of the Tea Party and the GOP ripping each other to shreds at the polls and in public debating forums. For years now---certainly since the beginning of the reign of King George II in Jan. 2001---the GOP has become increasingly out of touch with reality. Even invading another country to look for imaginary weapons of mass destruction was acceptable to Republicans, as was the blatant corruption of giving a thirty billion dollar "no bid contract" to Dick Cheney's former employer. Then with evident glee they spawned an even more ultra-conservative offspring called "The Tea Party" and at first it appeared to be little more than the GOP's pet pit bull used to savage any perceived Left-Wingers in the neighborhood. But, as with some pit bulls, the evil spawn has now turned on its own master. Like a vicious dog with its teeth latched firmly on his owner's leg, the Tea Party has been kicking GOP butt in the media and, more importantly, at many polling places around the country. All of which makes for a much brighter landscape for Democrats, who are quite content to sit back and watch the carnage. Hey, if the neighborhood bully was in front of your house getting his leg ripped open by his own pit bull, would you call 911 or just sit back and laugh? I know what I would do........LMAO”

“Don't you just love the way all these politicians are always pandering to "small businesses" in their campaign rhetoric? The assert that "small business" is the backbone of our economy. The reality is that mega-corporations run our economy and they have for the past 100 years, and they know it. The economic role played by small business owners is largely to function as satellite industries and suppliers of some huge corporation. Case-in-point: the dozens of companies producing auto glass for Chrysler, Ford and GM who are totally dependent on those orders. Bachman's opening statement is blatantly false. She asserts that "government spending does not create good jobs." Oh no? So those who work on federally funded highway projects, for instance, making thirty or forty bucks an hour have BAD jobs then? In her world they'd be better off making minimum wage at Mom & Pop's Hardware Store on Main Street in Small Business, America. Bachman is obviously a clueless politician spouting a bunch of cliches supplied to her by her campaign managers. Pathetic.”

“Okay, I'm not a big Obama fan myself and my own candidate of choice would have been someone like Ralph Nader, but what exactly is THE LIE that supposedly got Obama elected? His own law degree, professorship at a university law school, and political career has been pretty thoroughly documented. So what are you referencing here anyway? Is it the same tired old accusation of being a Muslim perhaps?”

Debbie McPherson on Sep 30, 2010 at 17:35:32

“Dan

No not th Muslim thing - I wouldn't care if he were a Muslim one little bit - as long as he doesn't want to stone a woman to death - that would make no difference to me

The lies that I am talking about are all the broken campaign promises - he doubl corssed us on just about everything he promised and turned out to be a corporate lapdog - not a champion of the middle class or even transparency in government as he put forth - he's a friend to bankers and all those corrupt forces in the UN. ”

“Clearly McAdams has no chance of winning this election. Even if the 2% undecided votes all go to him, he can't win. If Murkowski is the more tolerable candidate for Democrats then state Dems should approach Murkowski with a quid pro quo offer that in exchange for her assurances to bend on a few important issues more towards the Democratic viewpoint they, the registered Democrats, will provide a large block of voters on election day. Better to have Murkowski in office than some Tea Party right-wing fringe candidate like Joe Miller. Yes, it is a somewhat Machiavellian approach to politics but, hey, it worked for the GOP under Carl Rove's direction, why can't it work for the Left also?”

“I'm thinking I'll run for Congress. Let's see, I graduated summa cum loudly from Columbia University in, oh, let's say it was 1986. Then I got my law degree from Yale in 1989. I followed this up with a PhD in business administration from Stanford University in, uh, 1992 and went immediately to Harvard Medical School from which I graduated with my M.D. in 1996. Having worked simultaneously as a criminal defense attorney, a neurosurgeon and a successful real estate developer I feel that I am amply qualified to serve as your congressman.
