“Sorry for being obnoxious. Apple and Jobs know what to with ideas, but they tend to piece technology together, some invented some not. Jobs was a visionary. Samsung is like the Japanese car makers- they took technology, made it better, and surpassed Apple by a smidgen. Don't think their quality is quite as good as Iphone, but it is so close it does not matter.”

“Coming from a "radical environmentalist" that is rich..... will match my wits against yours any day bub. Go chase that CO2 you pollute the air with when you breathe out. You are causing global warming!”

“Child, you may try to match wits with me anytime. I await your repartee. But if that's your opening line, you're not even out of the crib yet. You first need a course in basic ecology, an understanding of thesholds, know the difference between types of pollution, then learn the difference between acts of pollution that are maladaptive and simple acts of respiration (which includes more than breathing), and understand the differences between referring to the environment as out there and separate from yourself (not reality) and environment as what you are an intimate part of. The word "pollution" per se is freighted with meaning and interpretation, but the popular meaning reders to poisoning the environment. Now, we CAN breath on something and poison it, but those examples are exceptional and rare, whereas, pollution as we commonly refer to it are acts by humans that demonstrably poison some part of the environment with all of the follow-up reactions of other organisms that depend on that environment. Of course, the load you left on your carpet would be considered pollution because you now have to clean it up. Hope that helps!”

“You think the government is efficient? What the government did was inject itself and then not regulate when it came to mortgage banking. If they had left it alone(regulated what was in the law, and NOT encouraged loaning to people that had no business borrowing) it would have been fine.

It comes down to morals and ethics; neither is any good on that front, but if both are doing their job, its a symbiotic relationship where private sector is generally more efficient”

“the gov. said you couldn't discriminate-- how awful!! the loans should have been based on an amount the buyers could pay-but that wouldn't have been as proffitable to the banks--AND the gov. didn't sell the mortgages as AAA bonds or give people with decent credit subprime mortgages or leverage the loans past a reasonable amount-- or bundle this mess and sell it to the ones they were being paid to advise while making bets that the whole mess would implode.”

“You must have missed the part when he said that instead of cutting taxes and going to war on a credit card We should pay down the debt

That was before he won the Nobel

Right about the time Cheney said "Deficits don't matter" yup Darth actually said that

You know before the right wing and their tactics wrecked the economy or did Obama manage to do that two months before he took office

Must have learned the deficit trick from Reagan the senile He was the guy in charge before Clinton cut spending and balanced the budget”

“RE: The guy does not care to answer about how much government spending is too much.

To be fair, that seems like a very open-ended and impossible question to answer to me. Is anyone really supposed to have a fixed dollar figure in mind? Besides, even if you were right about his evading the question (you aren't, but let's allow it for the sake of argument), he has a lot of company on the conservative side.”

“It's not reasonable to keep spending if it is not working. Only TARGETED spending works when the government spends. Your condenscending attitude is much like Krugman's- WE know better, listen to us... just keep running the deficit at a trillion plus each year till we "grow " our way out. I don't buy it. Even the Fed chairman has warned us of the impending doom if we don't get our financial house in order.

Yes , financial principles DO take common sense.... but leftists like Krugman, Obama, and you don't get that. Note how Obama critiqued Bush's deficit spending when he was the junior senator but now he has quadrupled the deficit annually. If only Hillary had been elected- much more common sense and more of a moderate, that is for sure.”

“And if we keep spending, and run up deficits, where does the money come from?

Taxes on the rich don't raise that much. The others that are buying our bonds(leveraged financing) will stop at some point, or we will have to raise interest rates to attract capital....

Get a little financial sense. The end of this is that we must target our spending properly or we won't come out of this. It is looking like the lost decade.”

“You say "Your condenscending attitude is much like Krugman's-

And a little below: "leftists like Krugman, Obama, and you don't get that. " - if it isn't condenscending, tell me how to interpret it

"financial principles DO take common sense." - Your common sense is not my common sense (as Voltaire said, commom sense is not so common), and I have a reason to believe that yours doesn't produce any worthwhile results.

And regarding targeting spending - what do you think Obama's job bill is about?”

“If you listen to Krugman once more and then read hia articles, Stiglitz book "Free Fall", some Hayek, and others instead of applying kitchen table accounting to the country economics, may be you'll figure it out what really "reasonable " means.

And don't even try to apply so called "commom sense" it isn't very common and depends on a person's development.

Otherwise you'll continue c;osing your eyes and ears and repeat the same "arguments" no "reasonable" person wants to argue with, because they already have been proven not applicable many times.”

“not everything that is "simple" is necessarily easy. So, if an elderly person is denied their right to vote because somebody in an office somewhere messed up and labeled them as "not a citizen", this citizen now has to go get a new birth certificate (pieces of paper dont last forever, chances are it has been lost of destroyed in the last 7 or 8 decades) and spend money for it? That is called a "poll tax" (please refer to a high school history text for the definition) and it is illegal and un-american. How can you tell someone who has voted in dozens of elections they can't for some reason. You are saying it is more important to correct OTHER PEOPLE'S MISTAKES than to give elligble citizens their right to vote. That is UnAmerican and your logic is unsound.”
