Let's tax big corporations to save our asses!

Oh, wait, what? The big corporation left for a tax haven with a better education system and took their jobs with them? Oops.

There is a middle ground, but neither party is willing to accept any sort of compromise.

Yup... we're fucked.

Blow it all up. We're doomed. How's Canada in springtime?

They didn't leave they only moved their money there.

And tell me what would we do in the case of a true crisis?

I would hope that as a father you would feed your children and break budget if you found yourself in a true crisis, wouldn't you? I would hope the country would do the same. There might be moments when this happens, and like so many tea party ideas your lack of foresight would cost us.

I can deal with that, eh.

I'm not incredibly familiar with all the details of this crisis, so this might be a completely misinformed, naive idea but: Raise the debt ceiling to avoid immediate crisis, and have a moratorium on raises for the next 4 years at least. Is there a reason that wouldn't be acceptable to all involved?

Are you on a personal crisis at the moment? If not, then what would you do if you were in one?

Are you seriously asking me something?

Canada would be happy to have you.

You could always live here for our 4 month summer when the Igloos melt and the Polar Bears migrate up south.

Not at all, obviously after it was asked verbatim.

Way to avoid the question...

:huh: First of all, personal question. Secondly, was it not obvious the way I framed the question what I would do?

Dfit00 07-27-2011 12:17 AM

Yes I got that, but a personal/individual crisis is different from a nation's crisis (where not everybody in that nation is actually in a crisis). You criticized INDY500 for his tea party ideas by stating that those ideas end up being costly in the long run.

Costly to whom? Don't you think that some new thought into fiscal policy is important since the instability between democrats and republicans in this topic is already going beyond crazy?

Irvine511 07-27-2011 12:26 AM

so who else is excited for when the Tea Party tries to shut down the government in September?

BVS 07-27-2011 12:33 AM

Dftt I'm not sure you understood my line of questioning. Let's say the national government has been completely fiscally responsible and then find ourselves in a war combined with another global economic meltdown, do we really want it to be unconstitutional to break budget in case of emergency?

This.

BVS 07-27-2011 12:48 AM

It seems like such common sense, right?

You know what else seems like common sense? Paying for what you've already spent.

We all went out to dinner in the last 10 years. Some of us ordered salad. Some of us order the lobster and a bottle of Dom. Now that the waiter brought the check, some people are saying that we ALL ate dinner, so we should divide the check evenly.

Bullshit.

So what do you want to CUT?
