Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

I truly get your points but there is no causal relationship to massive government spending and organic economic growth.

It has always been a stop gap measure that has proven, (with some exceptions, TVA for example), to be a net negative in the long run.

Ponder the effects of no QE 2 and 3. I can imagine interest rates rising and investment, ESPECIALLY in the housing sector, recovering much sooner.

The instability created by the current administration by pushing the Affordable Healthcare Act, tax increases and a non-existent energy policy have created the worst recovery in modern times.

Yes, lots of government spending but as a percentage of GDP it fell, not because of anything the government spent money on.

The tech and financial sectors drove the economy with innovation and investment. That is my point. Had those sectors, whose prosperity owed little or nothing to government spending, not been driving the economy, there would have never been a surplus.

We can see all of what I've argued evidenced in our economy today.

As I've stated before RS, you are the most un-Christian person I've ever seen. You are like Charles Manson calling someone a bad guy. I can't think of one spot where you have demonstrated a Christian-like attitude. Your God is money, as proven over and again.

Rep. Newt Gingrich (R-GA), February 2, 1993: We have all too many people in the Democratic administration who are talking about bigger Government, bigger bureaucracy, more programs, and higher taxes. I believe that that will in fact kill the current recovery and put us back in a recession. It might take 1 1/2 or 2 years, but it will happen. (Congressional Record, 1993, Thomas)

Rep. Bill Archer (R-TX), May 24, 1993: I would much rather be here today supporting the President and I would do so if his proposals could expect to increase jobs and the standard of living for Americans, but I believe his massive tax increases will do just the opposite. (Congressional Record, 1993, Thomas)

Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-GA), July 13, 1993: Small businesses generate the bulk of this Nation’s new jobs. And they will be the hardest hit by the Clinton tax-and-spend budget. Because, when you raise taxes, you kill jobs. (Congressional Record, 1993, Thomas)

Also about 2X more Christian.

Sorry RS, I'm more American than you will ever dream of being.

2... Tech boom in the late 80's through early 2000's, Um according to Dr. Reich, for example.

There wasn't massive government spending during those years, particularly during the Reagan portion?

Isn't it interesting and quite telling that when I speak out against Islam, Normuckraker calls it bigotry, but when he speaks out against Christianity, it is something entirely different. Is that honest? No it isn't.

HH's antiChristianity is not bigotry, 57's antiChristianity is not bigotry, Jax' antiChristianity is not bigotry either. Hmm. Why is that? How is that?

And all of you are right here doing it directly in my face. Who's face am I doing anything in? I'm stating facts about the actual behavior of Muslims every day, here in the present. Just repeating current and historic events. Yet everyone is incapable of bigotry except for me. How ridiculous is that?

It's about as dishonest as dishonest gets. The irony shouldn't be lost on anyone. Take the mote out of your own eye. Look in the mirror as you do so.

Islam always has been and always will be a menace to the world. They want to subjugate the whole of it and always have.

I'll be "bigoted" against murder all day long. You go ahead and cheer it like an equally barbaric, subhuman, slug. I'm also bigoted against rape, mutilation, dismemberment and beheadings too and no words of foolishness from you will ever change that.

My now ex-brother-in law is a Muslim. I've said this before. Many Muslims are non-practicing Muslims. Their book orders them to commit barbarous acts. That's just a fact. Those that do not obey the Koran are called hypocrites by those who do.

Spare me your constant stupidity, lies, disinformation and approval of slaughtering innocence, you disgusting monster.

Reich didn't need a map, he had the Communist Manifesto. That was and still is his map. It's no wonder JaxoMao reveres him.

I cannot agree with bigotry. Rshill, you have NEVER met a Muslim. If you did, you would not change your bigot tone. I Pity the FOOL, as the song goes.

While your at it jaxspp, please describe Dr. Reich's "map" as it was laid out.

Proportionality jaxspp, organic economic growth ALLOWS the government to spend. When government spends during weak economic conditions, without appropriate proportionality, the result is private sector apprehension and pull back. We see it today.

3..."What are you taking a vacation from?.."

3... Work. You'd love to know which business(s) I own wouldn't you? For that matter you'd probably like to know where I'm vacationing....sorry.

..then nothing progressive is going to happen."

"..Bill Clinton incorporated Reich's thinking into his 1992 campaign platform, "Putting People First," and after being elected

invited Reich to head his economic transition team. Reich later joined the administration as Secretary of Labor. During his

tenure, he implemented the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), successfully promoted increasing the minimum wage,

successfully lobbied to pass the School-to-Work Jobs Act, and launched a number of job training programs.

In addition, Reich used the office as a platform for focusing the nation's attention on the need for American workers to adapt

to the new economy. He advocated that the country provide more opportunities for workers to learn more technology.."

IS THIS THE "PLAN", "MAP" or "VISION" of the Secretary?

Quote: "Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich critiques President Obama’s handling of the economic crisis and the Clinton administration’s repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, a key deregulatory move that ended the separation of commercial and investment banking and is widely seen as having helped lead to the financial collapse. The Clinton administration also presided over a drastic transformation of U.S. welfare laws, throwing millions off of welfare rolls. "I went outside of the White House, walked back to my office along Constitution Avenue, expecting I would see signs. ... There are a lot of people who were concerned about that issue. But there was nobody on the streets. It was deafening. The silence was deafening," Reich says of the day Clinton signed the change into law. He notes this is when he realized, "if people who are concerned about the increasing concentration of wealth and power in this country are not mobilized, are not visible, then nothing progre

1...".. Yes, 9 years of lucky. Lucky, lucky, lucky. No thought put into it, just luck, luck, luck. And just an amazing

coincidence that the map Reich laid down played out..."

1. Dr. Reich's "map" does not exist. In fact President Clinton snubbed him directly when signing "welfare to work", among

other things.
