Ding, Ding... Ding! Winner!
Sad but true. In the past it helped restart the economy and ran a bunch of Worthless Bathurds to Canada. Sending a bunch of Thugs through Service will solve many problems. I'd said numerous times in the past that We Needed A Good War.
Yo'Bama has done a Spectacular Job in Saving and Adding Jobs To The FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. They (the Democrats) count the Census People and then they count the Other Jobs they "Think" they saved. Bull Malarkie.Yes, I know I Shouldn't But I Just Can't Help Myself...

I just found out a few days ago that in the obamacare crap there is a 3.8% tax added to when any of us sell our homes in the future if we are at some age."The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers it can bribe the public with the public's own money.

08-25-2010, 05:41 PM #30Every U.S. state experienced job losses during the recent downturn, but thanks to the right mix of industries, natural resources, and skilled workers, some states have a far lower unemployment rate than the 9.5 percent national average.
The top ten states with the least unemployment are evenly mixed between Republican and Democrat states, so it is the individual states that are making the difference and not the Federal government.
While 9.5% unemployment is really bad, the actual number of Americans who are without jobs is much worse;How nation's true jobless rate is closer to 22%

More and longer unemployment benefits have helped Iowans most affected by the recession meet their basic living needs while they search for new jobs. It also has saved jobs for Iowans who, but for the stimulus, might have also found themselves without work, said Andrew Cannon, a co-author of the report for the nonpartisan Iowa Fiscal Partnership (IFP).
Hate to think all that bad socialized spending may have done someone some good. But it is all relative, relative to if you have a job.

I think I could attempt to spend a life time in an attempt to get you to see how we work down here. And I don't think it would still get through.
In my real estate days I had a lot, and I mean a lot, of Canadian real estate investors come to the US to buy real estate. Why do you think that is so? It's a rhetorical question. I don't plan on answering it."The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers it can bribe the public with the public's own money.

What ever the government allows you to keep is also a subsidy then?
Maybe you didn't mean it that way or maybe you did. Either way it seems like there are many who think of the government this way which is a very scary thought.

It is not a question of believing in government but in believing those that get tax breaks, basically free money, is being paid for by the rest of us. It would not be a big deal but that tax deduction (subsidy) you get helps to put your government further in debt.
Funny how I am the socialist that thinks that subsidies are a bad thing (you should pay your share of what it takes to run the country) and you the conservative wants a handout.

08-25-2010, 07:38 PM #37It is a subsidy when some one else has to pay more to give you the tax break. Or even worse, your government takes on debt to give you the break.
The government spends the money it does not produce it. Tax payers subsidize the government.
When the government spends money it does not have, the bond holders are doing the subsidizing.

The government only redistributes funds in the way its citizens ask it to. I have no problem with the government spending money, as long as they go through the process of collecting it. If we do not like how much they are spending they will feel it in the next election.
Politicians get away with giving us 'free' stuff (tax breaks, infrastructure projects...) by putting off paying for it in the future. The thing is no future politician ever collects the money to pay it off. Until they get in the trouble Greece is in and others outside the country (the bond holders, usually through the IMF) decide how you can run your country.
