Please…. and besides, it has little to do with people’s political ideologies, it’s about people being complete morons, plain and simple.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Social Security is not an Entitelment

“Washington has a spending problem, not a revenue problem!”
~ GOP leaders.

Words were never so true, for no nation spends like ours.

Our tax revenue, according to this represents 30% of our GDP. Am I the only one struggling to understand why? The government has 5 trillion dollars in their lap every year and they need 15 trillion dollars of debt to pay for all the bullshit we’ve been spending on. You might also notice an “Unfunded Liabilities” column at the bottom. I’ll get into that, as it’s past 100 trillion. Yes, liberals, that’s how much your spending and yet it’s not enough, huh?

One unfunded liability is social security, another, healthcare. It’s a miracle Obamacare failed.

Furthermore, be the party conservative or liberal, any government in or outside the United States, will spend if allowed to do so. Barack Obama was called into give us a “debt solver.” His proposed bill was so absurd not one member, democrat or republican, voted for it. The vote was, “purely symbolic” said one Democratic leader.

Lastly, the average credit card debt per citizen is 4,679$. Well, that really doesn’t matter, because due to the reckless spending of the government, over $130,000 PER TAXPAYER is needed. Do these numbers not scare you yet?

Let me go on then, there are some lesser known things that liberals seem to love known as “unfunded liabilities.” These unfortunately accumlate to 1,027,308$ PER TAXPAYER. would a reasonable person EVER hope to pay this off? Are liberals EVER willing to admit the government is spending too much when each taxpayer owes past a million dollars?

The reason conservatives aren’t holding America hostage is because we actually attempt to prevent this bullcrap.

For those of you about to demand because you’re struggling with the truth:

source

socialized programs represent 6 times our economy. When is it time to start thinking: “Maybe we should cut back on spending?”

One things for damn certain, conservatives NEVER wanted this. I doubt liberals did too. And yet, they think increasing the debt limit will solve it. Utter madness.

And now I know where I came from!

Just in case you’re still going to act like an idiot, here’s the literal screen itself

Aaaaand the Facebook screenshot of my emails, which can’t be faked with Facebook

Anyways the fact that you think supply-side economics got us out of the depression renders you totally unfit to debate economics. Like I always say, your ignorance is not just as valid as someone else’s knowledge.

Umm, yeah, that’s where I am

Do you believe me? Why the fuck should I believe your some random stranger who prolly just posted someones facebook pics?

Yup, supply side economics existed back when we were banging rocks together and later on, hanging people for witchcraft.

If you actually believe that, I highly recommend you take a class in economics. You said you’re in college, and a semester is starting soon. Should be pretty easy.

Furthermore anything not keynesian is pretty much supply side

I guess all of these are Supply Side? In fairness there’s really only about 20 or so different schools of thought. Supply side is one of the them, but it hasn’t got nearly as many people on it’s side as Neoclassical and Keynsian.

Chiiiiilllll man.

Also this. In your most recent post you completely failed to address the point without insulting us – and you probably wonder why we don’t take you seriously sometimes.

But keeping a balanced budget? NOT KEYNESIAN. One of FDRs priorities during the depression was keeping a balanced budget.

Christ can we please stick to things that didn’t happen 80 years ago? Also, he didn’t care much for a balanced budget at first – He was spending money hand over fist that we did not have – the war changed that.

Nope, you missed the point. Supply side economics has been around since the industrial revolution, in which governments began giving subsidies to big businesses to increase exports and improve the nations GDP, in fact, one could say it stemmed from the Mercantalism England so deeply based its economy off.

I also recommend you go to history class. Nah, you’d fail.

No, not all of them are supply side. Some of them are capitalism, which has to do with supply side economics sometimes, but you’d have to be a moron to call that a list of economic theories, furthermore, much of the ideals on the page are regarded as borrowing concepts or are subgenres of supply side and keynesian.

Get over it.

Nope, you’ve sen the graphs, you’re just ignoring them.

Originally posted by FuzzyBacon:

… And again, you missed the point. Those licenses are not handed out like candy – if you want to legally own a pistol grip or sawed off shotgun, you need to apply for a license, register the weapon, and pay a pretty hefty fee. But hey, believe whatever you want. Doesn’t make you less wrong.

And also, I think it is theoretically possible to carry a duffel bag in a bank.

Theoretically, yes. In practice? Probably not. Any bank with an actual vault would likely have guards who would ask to search it before letting you go about your business.

Really? No, you can obtain said gun from PRIVATE SALES. PRIVATE SALES allows persons to buy guns without a license. If persons were to give a reason that they may not pass their license test, guns cannot be sold, however, that doesn’t make it impossible. In fact, it’s actually quite easy to just shut up and buy a gun. Or lie, whichever you do better.

Furthermore Fuzzy, you missed the constitutions 4th amendment. If I have a bag with money piling out they damn well better have a warrant before they search me.

Lastly, yeah, they DO hand the license to own a gun, but in this case a sawed off shot gun would be “any other weapon” which isn’t going to be hard to get a permit for. 200$ certainly isn’t the price of candy, but seriously, 200$ is not more than a few days of work at a fast food restaurant.

Rubix doesn’t have to pretend. I’m no idiot and he blows me out of the water, intellectually.

Guess it out sir. Since you clearly can’t see the data presented

Neither can you, apparently, since you can’t see that the surplus peaked before Bush took office. And that’s not even analysis, that’s simple observation, which leads me to doubt your ability to accurately deconstruct a graph and draw conclusions from the data.

Also, just FYI, Keynes never claimed that the deficit spending would immediately reverse the economy. That would be stupid. It’s getting better, but some people aren’t going to accept anything short of what we had before the collapse, which is sheer bloody-minded idiocy, as that wealth was based mostly on people not realizing that property wasn’t worth so damn much. It will be years if not decades before we see that kind of prosperity again – hopefully next time we’ll base it on something real.

Keynesian advocates deficit spending. Spending more on military is generally conservative approach. But keeping a balanced budget? NOT KEYNESIAN. One of FDRs priorities during the depression was keeping a balanced budget.

Wrong again fuzzy, since you can’t quote the specifics DON’T BOTHER, let me show you what an easy wikipedia footnote can.

“In the US, shotguns originally manufactured without shoulder stocks, having their barrels shortened to under 18 inches, are classified as an “Any Other Weapon” by the BATFE and have a $5 transfer tax, if they are manufactured by a maker possessing the appropriate Class 2 Special Occupational Taxpayer Federal Firearms License. However, in order to convert an existing shoulder stocked shotgun to a short barreled shotgun or an existing pistol-grip-only shotgun to an “Any Other Weapon”, a private citizen must pay the standard $200 NFA tax"

Unless he wants to make himself seem smart? Also, what 8 years was Bush President? !http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5083/5241914227_8ccb164c00.jpg! Guess it out sir. Since you clearly can't see the data presented, Keynesian requires DEFICIT SPENDING. TAKE A DAMN LOOK AT THE GRAPHS. !http://neighborhoodeffects.mercatus.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Federal-spending-as-a-share-of-GDP-300x201.png! !http://neighborhoodeffects.mercatus.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Historical-top-marginal-tax-rate-300x191.png! !http://neighborhoodeffects.mercatus.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Federal-receipts-as-a-share-of-GDP-300x196.png! " The primary failure of fiscal policy to be expansive in this period is attributable to the sharp increases in tax structures enacted at all levels of government. Total government purchases of goods and services expanded virtually every year, with federal expansion especially marked in 1933 and 1934. [But] the federal Revenue Act of 1932 virtually doubled full employment tax yields. But notice, Brown doesn’t say that FDR failed to be Keynesian because he stopped spending; he failed to be Keynesian because he also raised taxes. But that doesn’t stop many in the punditry from claiming that, in his later years, FDR was converted into some sort of proto-Paul Ryan."

Why would I believe his profile. No, the surplus was at its highest in Bush’s first year. It disintegraded the moment his tax cuts went into place, but the tax base began exploding, which is standard supply side economics. No, it was barack obamas. Why? BARACK OBAMA DID IT! Not true at all. That’s a great myth of the great depression. One of FDRs primary concerns was a balanced budget. It did.

Any rifle small enough to fit in a bag that you’d be carrying around would be a machine pistol. I didn’t ignore it – I properly redefined your terms. Besides, I’m sure I could find all sorts of obscure laws making strange things legal in certain areas, but unless you want to argue only within the context of places that haven’t outlawed Sawed off Shotguns, and there are not many, then it’s not a particularly effective discussion strategy, as you’re talking about illegal weaponry.

That is not true. A bag is capable of being very large. Even larger than a rifle. Also, no, just because a few areas outlaw them doesn’t mean all do. I’d like a source indicating that sawed offs are mostly outlawed. My source is the second amendment.

It was working perfectly fine. The jobs provided caused the taxbase to expand and increase revenue, we almost reached a surplus since bush’s early years. Until the stimulus package. Obamas spending was the largest keynesian economic stronghold in the history of the united states ENTIRE WORLD. And failed to get us out of the great recession as fast as supply side balanced budget ideals got us out of the great depression. Outside of higher taxes and less jobs, I have yet to enjoy this madness. [Please keep it nice.] -Z

And in most areas, are illegal. What a coincidence.

rifles can be bought in smaller sizes

Generally those are referred to as “machine pistols” and aren’t exactly easy for a civilian to get their hands on.

Oddly Obama said he wanted it ended. This NYTimes article (the author was either in love with obama or at least had a boner for him) shows that Obama wanted to END IT. You guys could have restricted foodstamps to healthy foods for the hungry, not free restaraunt meals for the fat. Our obesity rates keep going up, our economy keeps going down. Keynesian economics has always failed us.

He also said nasa should start launching shuttles, but not FOR TEN YEARS.

You keep our nation fat, lazy, and ignore our future investments for the sake of hoping the world will be forgiving. It’s not true.

Also, if you walked around everywhere carrying a duffel bag big enough to hold a rifle or a shotgun, you’re gonna attract rather a lot of attention. You’d almost be better off not bothering to hide it in the first place.

Sawed off shotgun would fit in smaller bags, and rifles can be bought in smaller sizes, could also have alot of fake money piling out of it so it looks like I’m wealthy enough to need the duffel bag..

The cops would still be called, and you’d almost certainly have to present paperwork proving your legal right to carry well before you go near a bank. And of course, if you walked into a bank carrying any sort of rifle or shotgun, the tellers would be instantly on high alert, thereby eliminating the surprise factor that many such robberies rely on.

I could get a permit for concealed carry. Most states by law grant you one on request, no further investigation. I could put it in a bag/suitcase.

If we put all the funds we spend on our military every year into helping people instead we could probably feed most of Africa and South America. Not that it will ever happen, but it would certainly be nice.

Of course, then we’d be feeding other peoples children outside america and abandoning all military, I recommend we take from the larger budget: medicaid.

The point I was attempting to make is that the main appeal of handguns is that they are very easy to conceal and transport. Jhco rather handily supported my argument here by offering that he does the exact same thing with his. I’m not really sure how I could point that out either more or less civilly than I did.

Well, in open carry locations you CAN walk into a bank with a shotgun/rifle…

There is plenty of blame to push at each party right now at having waited so damn long to address these budget issues, but right now, the Republicans are easily eating 90% of the batshit-insanity cake. This is practically extortion — holding the country hostage. I’m genuinely embarrassed for my country right now.

WHAT? just WHAT? The first half of that post was hard to read, especially the PA. You push the budget up past a trillion, let me show you the deficit:

Multiply war costs, free handouts, etc, and when the GOP wants only lessened spending, you call us terrorists holding the nations hostage? You know what I think? I think it’s despicable for democrats to refuse budging on the idea that spending needs to be cut. If they can’t budge from that, they too, are just as much at fault.

Lastly: I think we need to cut spending and raise taxes. For every 3$ cut in spending, 1$ rise in taxing. Why? In order to gain a balanced budget, cutting spending is a more important goal. Why? We’re spending over 1 trillion more than we’re taxing!

This would only mean we’d need a further complex organism. If the theory of evolution is proven, it’s only a matter of time. There is much more to discuss here also.
