“I think you have some emotional problems. My advice-- find a good psychologist and delve into exactly what it was that some woman (perhaps your mother?) did to you to make you think in such a dysfunctional way. Take heart, you can be helped.”

“IT was a comment namely about these politicians who showboat around using "charged debates". Sexism, racism, drugs, equality, etc... just to get a few votes. It is an election tactic, a ploy. It is not really a political policy issue, as it is bias.

“"The victim fought the suspect off as he attempted to touch her again and alerted police."

This should have been a clue. Once could be a drunken mistake, or a misinterpreted signal. After she says no and fights you off, twice is assault.

That should be simple enough for even you to understand.”

“That does not explain why depositors, who put their money in the bank expecting some safety and a small return, should be penalized when the bankers screw up.

The kind of thinking that leads to such conclusions, will destroy any confidence anyone has left in banks and the IMF, and rightfully so, with dire consequences. Krugman's generally correct views about austerity and spending, especially as relating to the economy of the US, are beside the point here. Thinking that the situation of the US, whose debt is not unsustainable, and which still issues the world's most secure currency and can still borrow enormous sums at practically no cost, is in any way like that of Cypress, or Greece, which can not issue their own currencies, being tied to the Euro, is just economic silliness. Ignorance, also.”

“I feel sorry for you if you still have confidence in banks.  What a shock is in store for you!

" Krugman's generally correct views about austerity and spending, especially as relating to the economy of the US,"  When have we ever had austerity in the last ten years?  Every year the dear great leader has been in office, the deficit has grown by more than $1 Trillion and is  on track to be the second biggest in history this year.  Every year since Obama has been in office federal spending has been bigger than any other time in history.  And to top it all off, the Bush Recession ended nearly four years ago.  We have been in the Obama "Recovery" ever since!

The only reason that US borrowing costs are so low is that the Fed keeps printing money 24/7.  THAT is absolutely not sustainable.  If interest rates are at their all time historic, never-see-before lows, what does that tell you the very next move of interest rates will be?”

“It may be easy, in your mind, to criticize, but good criticism is not that easy, and is a valuable endeavor. Using technological tricks to manufacture flashy but empty work is also easy. Producing honest work is hard. I know,

What is pathetic is your ad hominum attack on my point of view. If I was too professorial forgive me. After all, I have taught furniture design both here and in Europe, was a National Endowment fellow and have works in seven museums. I do not consider being called professorial an insult.
