  •  Down is up? (5+ / 0-)

    Driving the country back into recession is growth? It's really just an opportunity for the wealthy, sitting on piles of cash, to buy public assets at fire sale prices.

    •  The fact is... (0+ / 0-)

      ...we consume 8-10% more than we produce in this country.

      Any remedy for that situation is going to feel like a recession. It doesn't matter what the remedy is: higher taxes on the rich, cut spending, etc. All are contractionary.

    •  Gandhi's sins sound like the republican mantra (1+ / 0-)

      Gandhi's Seven Sins:

      Wealth without work; 1% are all for that.

      Pleasure without conscience; Ditto 1% like this too.

      Knowledge without character; Knowledge is money is a 1% motto.

      Commerce without morality; 'Win elections at all costs, Damm the morality of it.' seems to be the republican theme to win elections.

      Science without humanity; The earth was created in 7 days and is flat is what they want to force on us all. Science as no place outside of that.

      Worship without sacrifice; God is good only when republican themes are evoked. All others are the work of the Devil.

      Politics without principle. Tell the voters anything just to get elected and then revoke their rights to vote so you can do what you as a republican puppet are told to do by your paymaster.

      Our money system is not what we have been led to believe. The creation of money has been "privatized," or taken over by private money lenders. Thomas Jefferson called them “bold and bankrupt adventurers just pretending to have money.” webofdebt
