I would invite all of you over to the thread where we're discussing why BMac has so many TVs in his trailer.

Not only is Walker slime, he appears to be on the verge of being indicted as a criminal. That he has managed to put off the charges until after the election is skillful no doubt, but not the kind of skill that most of us want to see rewarded with elective office.

It still is incomprehensible to me how these fanatic reactionary Republicans can persuade so many people to vote against their own best interests. I just pray that it doesn't happen in this case. Turning Walker out on his ear would be a really good sign about the American electorate.

Our debt is not the real problem, our trade imbalance is. A large part of our trade imbalance is caused by the Chinese manipulation of the value of their own currency and by the OPEC manipulation of the price of oil.

So if we cut our obese and bloated military and addressed these two real issues of the manipulation of our balance of trade, the economic world might look very different.

Of course now you're going to argue that to address these two issues we'd NEED a big expensive military and I'd reply that the relationship between the size/cost and the efficiency of our military is another topic for another day.

William Woodall says: "Yes, it's true that many countries are kinder and more generous to their people than the United States has ever been. That's without question. But the real problem isn't kindness, it's spending more money than we have."

We WOULD have the money if we changed our priorities as a society and stopped trying to be the world's policemen. We waste far too much on military and defense spending, as well as corporate bailouts and unfair tax structures, both personal as well as corporate.

William Woodall also says: "Raising taxes is not a good solution. Beyond a certain point, raising taxes will do everything conservatives claim that it will. . . it destroys jobs, destroys small businesses, discourages research and development, and leads wealthy individuals, corporations, and entrepreneurs to relocate elsewhere, which, eventually, will result in lower revenue."

Then why was it that, in the early '80's, manufacturers continued to relocate to third-world countries for cheap labor even though President Reagan got Congress to pass massive tax cuts along with his 1981 budget ? These tax cuts had NO influence over whether businesses stayed or left. This has also been true with the Bush tax cuts. All these cuts have done is to allow CEOs and shareholders pocket more of their profits while continuing to ship jobs elsewhere, simply because other workers are willing to provide their labor for lower wages.
