Calling out all libs
I am tired of all liberals saying that Bush is making money for himself, his cronies, and rich corporations. I want proof to back up your statements! The Haliburton bull**** has been dismissed as liberal b.s., so don't even try to use that as an example. Tax cuts are a base of republican philosophy, and help more than the rich mind you. What else do you got?
07-19-2004, 08:09 AM #2
how about the inflation that results from giving tax cuts when the countries debt is increasing at a phenominal rate? that helps no one, and in the long run you, as an individual, loose more money than you saved from the tax cut. as for your disbelief that all politicians are self serving; are you really that blind? would you not do the same if placed in a position of power? its simply human nature, it has nothing to do with the silly repub/dem label.

I wouldn't even bother, if George Bush stood up and admitted it all hisself it would still be called liberal BS. If he said Yes I started the Iraq War for the sole financial benefits of me and my friends, I sent your children to die to fatten our wallets, yes I did now go f*ck yourself America!!!!! People like you rabbit would say: "Thats liberal BS."

Based upon these responses, I think my point is made. I will admit that I am uninformed as to the details of the rising deficit, but that has nothing to do with my question. Besides, logic tells us that the deficit is from too much govt spending, not tax cuts.
07-19-2004, 08:23 AM #5Originally Posted by sigrabbit
the deficit is from the combination of the two, your logic is flawed. if there were concrete proof bush would be impeached by now, so your point was made before you started the thread, but i have no doubt that you think your right.
07-19-2004, 08:26 AM #6
Deficit spending and tax cuts stimulate the economy, period. Taxing and Gov't spending causes inflation. Sin please give me the example of infalation that you see right now happening in our economy.
Also since you are working on your Phd please explain to me the repercussion of the Chinese floating their currency on the world market and it's impact on the American economy.

If there are a few more terrorist hits on the shores we wont have to worry about the tax cuts bro the stock market will simply die. The US stock market is driven by Consumer Confidence only there isnt enough gold in the world to back it. I would much rather be alive. What everyone fails to realize is either we fight these animals ovearseas or we do it here. One dirty bomb and the economy is toast. One biological attack and the economy is toast. One more Sept 11 and the economy is Toast. So if your lib or a conserv you have to realize these people dont care what your ideaology is if it isnt fundamental Islam. Iraq needed to be taken down sooner than later, it was just a matter of time. Not only did we have intel he had WMD's the rest of the world did too even the French. Besides 98% of the reconstruction of Iraq is going to be done by Iraqis so i dont get how fat cats here are going to benefit from it.

we, as a country are only allowed by congress to have a set level of debt. when that mark is passed money has to be printed to make up for the excess debt. as such, the value of each dollar decreases, thus inflation. this has occured quite recently with the huge increase in the federal debt in the last couple years. same thing that happened twenty years ago.
my PhD, as i have pointed out before, is in the biological sciences not economics, so why would you bring this into the question? is it because ive chapped your ass again, and you have no real arguement? i bet it is. as for china i know nothing about it, nor do i think its relevant to the topic at hand so im not going to deal with it.
07-19-2004, 08:50 AM #10
I don't buy the "ecomomy is toast" bit. We have been there done that with 911. I give the American people some credit. That was the first time we had ever experienced anything like that. If a dirty bomb or anything else goes off we will break out some seroius bass ass weapons and level Afgastans Mountains with MOABS. And that will just be the beginning.
You will see an America that will be so pissed the nice guy crap will be over.

Ya i guess that report can read into the future too right? So what would have been your solution? Let him build nuclear weapons? Starve, Beat, Kill millions? Funnel money to the PLO for there homicide bombings? As for the link between Iraq and Al-queda Does it really matter what name they go by? Alzarquawi the most wanted man in Iraq was in Westeren Iraq before the war started. He has links to Al-queda but he has his own group of terrorists. So did doesnt matter in my opnion.

Man has this thread strayed from the original topic. As for the Phd, congrats, I have a J.D. and have a great respect for people willing to put in the work to become educated. I don't really see how the national deficit comes into play here, as it has been a hot button issue dating back to Reagan.
07-19-2004, 09:02 AM #13
Sin , my ass is not Chapped it is smooth.LOL No I brought up that question because it has a fairly simple answer, anyone who can't answer it has no business discissing economic policy.
It is relavant to the topic at had we are discussing deficit spending/taxation ie: economic policy.
Right now the dolllar is competing with the Euro and losing the battle. China has been spending but not with their currency. If and when they choose to float their currency what you will see is infaltion like you've never seen before. All of the Muslim nations have been discussing going to the Dinar , their own currency and selling off their dollars, which includes OPEC countries within the next five years.
The US dollar has been the standard of measurement worldwide for years what happens when no one wants our currency anymore? Recession/depression era economics. We have to keep spending to keep up with the impact of the "possibility" of infaltion. Why do you think interest rates are still low? If you or anyone else doesn't know any of these very relavant topics stick to something that you do.

You cant tell me you dont think if those events happened that there wouldnt be a severe economic back lash for some time. So ya it would be toast for awhile in my opnion.
07-19-2004, 09:09 AM #15
sig congrats on the JD im studying for the lsat right now, and plan on entering in a year. intellectual property here i come!
victor, its neat that you have some knowledge of the economy but the topic at hand was taxation and its effect on inflation. there are obviously many factors that contribute to inflation, but we were not discussing them. start a new thread if you want to start a new topic.
07-19-2004, 09:15 AM #16
Fine -taxation will cause infaltion, period end of story especially at this juncture of the economic status of our economy.
And I think it's "neat" that you are working on your PHD stick to Biology and stay out of economis.
07-19-2004, 09:24 AM #17
Whats your Phd in Victor? And congrats on the Phd Sin.

JT2K. Don't calim to have one. I am however in the steel industry and have been for 15 years. All of these issues are serious regading every aspect of our economy.
In addition the steel industry has been the most severly impacted aspect of our economy in the last year. I challenge anyone to disprove anything I've written on this thread. Most of you guys are too young to remember Carter and his tax and spend years and 16% interest rates.
The bottom line is are there people in the US making $ of this you bet your a$$.
What the intellectual elitists can't stand is that there always have been and always will be power brokers that control the destiny of our country and the world and they are powerless to stop it. GET OVER IT!
07-19-2004, 09:56 AM #19
Dude go take your Riddilin. I was just asking you a question. And in reguards to your MOAB comment we been doing that for quite some time bro that doesnt work its human intel that does work. Also you dont think the economy would have some severe back lash if there were several other terror attacks? Since you didnt buy "The economy would be toast" comment in my previous post i would like to hear your views on it.
07-19-2004, 10:04 AM #20
I agree that human intel works and so does every parrot on CNN etc... yes it does work and no we haven't been using MOABS in Afghanastan or there would be no more mountains. Do you know what a MOAB is? Backlash , some. Nothing like what you imagine. There are too many stop gaps in place to cause a major crash in the economy.
You severly underestimate America and Americans. The economy was going down the crapper before 911 (thanks to Clinton) and the airline industry was in a tailspin already with TWA about to fold and other airlines in financial trouble. So don't go blaming all of this on 911.
07-19-2004, 10:35 AM #21
Massive Ordnance Air-burst Bomb it weights 21,000 lbs. We used BLU-82 daisy cutters and BLU-118/B thermobaric weapons which weigh 15,000 lbs a peice so ya we have used some upper Escilion Equipment there. And I dont severly underestimate Americans my statement was to convey that another terrorist attack on our shores would hurt our Economy. As far as the economy going into the Crapper ya sure maybe but 9/11 certainly didnt help it come out of the Crapper.

You Mean North Korea btw. Yet is the key word in your statement. As far as being a Follower No i call them as i see them. I see this as a necessary evil. Sorry you feel like you do.

I'm a middle of the road person who sides more with conservatives because liberals love to take cheap unthoughtful shots at a conservative administration. All you guys do is whine about the same junk everyday but you guys just can't admit that your own party, who was in control during the 90's, set us up to get ****ed right in the butt...

OK, I will offer up this. The Republican party platform is very specific about the party's stance toward free trade (it's pro free trade even though some uninformed Repubs on this very board seem to think otherwise) and economists widely agree that many of GW's policies are extremely protectionist. I'm not saying Dems would be any better or worse but GW's track record in dealing with softwood lumber, farm subsidies, allegedly tainted Canadian beef, etc is less than ideal IMO.
All politicians should be required to follow party platform more closely. These bums do is what's in their best interest as far as getting re-elected, and that is bowing to the demands of special interest groups.

I also grow tired of all the hating that is done when is usually just something that is an uncontrollable circumstance set in place before the person got there and it is something they have to deal with at the present
btw, sorry to jump to the conclusion that you were liberal

Are you seriously kidding me? You don't even understand who put us in debt, and you don't understand what those military cuts actually were. Stop repeating this jargon crap that you constantly hear from this administration and fox news, start reading a few different sources to get your news instead of letting them report and decide for you.

Iraq was not an imminent threat, yet bush invaded illegally anyways, Iraq has no connection to 9/11, iraq has no connection to al-qaeda. This invasion does not seem to have any "ripple" effect that you speak of, in fact it seems to be breeding the next generation of terrorists and hate towards america.

Haliburton is not BS, the number of no bid contracts they've been given is too crazy to be able to simply dismiss it as BS.
I'll post more as they come to me, the fact their campaign has raised more money than ever, and far out dueing the dems, should be alarming why it is that it is.
The tax cuts given by republicans are debatable, the trickle down tax cuts they give sometimes however don't always trickle down.
