Question by n/a: Why is OBAMA’s TRILLION dollar addition to the deficit OK.? If you voted for him, is this what you wanted?
I’m independent, and truthfully, I didn’t vote. I just wanted to know why liberals who dogged the spending in iraq, which is minute compared to this, think that this so-called stimulus is ok…?
At least the war gave back a little to the economy, we contracted american workers to work there, companies to make weapons, paid soldiers to fight, who later spent their money and contributed to the economy. it funded actually production and services.
This bailout is just printing monopoly money, which will only delay the inevitable price correction (deflation) and further devalue the dollar. Wasn’t FDR’s ignorance of deflation what prolonged the depresion…?
Is this the change people voted for…? Hopefully we won’t have to have another world war to pull us out of this….
In response: No, I drive a camary. I did get laid off, i pay for cobra now. And no, when i 65 i’ll have wished the government didn’t take my money ( I earned) for social security.
I’m educated, paid my way through college while working full time, and feel completely competent in being able to manage my own investments to pay for my retirement. I wish they’d stop stealing my money and giving it to other lazy people who didn’t take the time to learn how to take care of themselves.
3rd point, no FDR prolonged depression. we only pulled out of it when the war forced us to produce goods, instead of the subsidizing, which he pushed.
This is bad management of deflation, which is what got us in the first depression.
You’ll feel different when the government takes about 40% of earnings in tax, and then does this with it…
Also, how is moving (THE ILLEGAL WAR) to Afghanistan going to be any better. If we thought Iraq was bad ask Russia about fighting there….

Why was Bush’s Trillion dollar war OK? No in fact it’s illegal.
I thought FDR’s domestic programs and spending is what got us out of the economic downturn. Tell me how does no bid contracts to halliburton in Iraq help our economy? Or Tax cuts to the wealthy and tax breaks for business that build overseas? How has that helped America? Other than everyone losing their job.
FDR did such a terrible job, when you become 65 do us a favor and don’t collect social security or medicare or all the other domestic programs that help people. Obama isn’t perfect but he is doing exactly what he promised, and until you don’t have a job, can’t afford health insurance, prices are too high so you have no room to talk.
You probably drive an SUV, and only think for yourself.
