Quoting Diana3316:

I read your post several times trying to understand your point.  You’ve managed to once again write a comment I don’t fully understand and seems to put forth a vague/unclear position.  Perhaps it’s just me.

 

You say you are tired of old beltway rhetoric, yet the very next statement you launch into the same meaningless rhetoric about compromising your freedom and the Constitution.  While just a decade ago there was not a whimper to be heard when Bush et al passed the Patriot Act that didn’t just compromise, but actually DID take away freedom and constitutionally protected Rights!  I never hear anyone chanting to repeal the Patriot Act. 

 

And yes….oh the taxes.  Who likes to pay taxes….but I for one, would like to live in a country where there are services and safe infrastructure for me, my children and my children’s children.  I am sure there are others that feel the same.  If you stand with the folks that just want to use everything up and put nothing back in its place except pollution and damage, that fervently protect millionaires, billionaires, hedge fund managers and oil companies from having to pay a fair tax by refusing to close even the very basic of tax loop holes,  while leaving the working class buried under a stacked system which results in their dreams to fade into abject hopelessness, left to die without adequate food or healthcare in old age, that promote the choking out of any national education standard allowing states to cleanse curriculums of science and other core standards so our children are woefully unprepared to compete in a global market, miserably vulnerable to corporations that refuse to pay a living wage or provide a safe work environment and target them for exploitation, coercion and/or intimidation….then I cannot agree with you. 

 

You seem to praise Mr. Brat as a “Professor of Economics”  who understands basic budgeting principles and “understands that you can't tax the a country into prosperity”, but I have never heard any respected economists, some Nobel Prize winning, put forth ideas like what were quoted/footnoted in the Wikipedia clip I posted.  

 

We shall see how his handlers craft his message, but frankly his ideas seem quite astonishing and strange to me.  What kind of “economist” puts forth an economic message that one specific religious group is superior to others?  And how wacky is the notion that Capitalism and Christianity should converge?  Capitalism philosophy is not based on unconditional love for your neighbor.  The most important thing to a capitalist is his bottom line, which must grow year by year if to be deemed as successful.  Best I remember, the only time we saw Jesus lose his temper was when he saw money changers in the Temple;  turned over their tables and drove them out!

 

But perhaps what Mr. Brat means by “Christian Capitalism” can be found in the Book of Acts, Chapter 4:

 

32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.
33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all
34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales
35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.

 

Or maybe Mathew 19 with the Rich Young Ruler?

 

21 Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be complete, go and sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” 

 

It should be interesting to see how Mr. Brat explains his views to the voters…..and whether he wants to be a preacher or viewed as a serious economist.

 

PS:  Read the rest of Mathew 19.  It explains what it is to be a Half-way Christian....specifically....in regards to cherry picking the items you want to believe in and how that affects your chances to get into heaven.



Once again, exactly!  Your needs are not being met and Congress, with a 10% approval rating is not meeting the needs of 90% of the people.  Yet we continue to re-elect them.  Let's not keep reshuffling the deck, let get a new deck.  The only folks whose needs are being met are the crony crapitalists who occupy the White House and the Beltway.  They pass laws they don't read, the are our aristocracy and they live above the laws they expect the rest of us to abide by.

 

Good riddance to all of them.

Exactly... a breath of fresh air!  None of the political rhetoric we've been hearing from these do nothing idiots that currently occupy the Beltway.  

 

Compromise is good as long as you don't compromise my freedom and don't compromise the Constitution.  As an Professor of Economics he understand the ramifications of spending more than you are able to collect in taxes.  He understands that you can't tax the a country into prosperity.  That lesson has been proven throughout Europe.  (If you do decide to follow your dream man in Europe, I'd suggest Germany)*wink*

 

When you were doing your cherry picking you forgot that he's in favor of term limits and supports small business over the large corps that have all of the politicos in their pockets.

Quoting 3345roc:

Let's hope the next administration has enough experience to clean up the mess left by the novices in this administration.


Problem there is, all the money was drained by the 2001-2009, sordid circumstances. How deep did we get,before the Sept. surprise,2008? Any President in a Great Recession/Depression has problems; given, that the World is still suffering it's effect's. I guess you are calling the Bush Admin. Professional's,Roc. Professionals leave Surpluses. We've had a few surplus years, but the bottom line will not be satisfied by them. Put people back to work, with a livable wage. That is a SimplyComplicated problem no one can figure out. As stated before; Iraq played Robinhood with a bank, then gave the money to their citizens to clean up a town/region. I'm not saying we should do that, but, you have to look around at the street's in America. They could use beautification, as well as project's to properly channel flood prone areas to places that are in need of water. How many other ways can we stimulate this economy? Someone up there has printed trillions. That money lays in banks. The question remains; Who will we replace in Washington,  Who has a more positive vision, for the future of America?

He sure would be a Brat, for Washington Politic's...Libertarian...Still smacks of a Conservative shift to the GOP...Good news to them,since they usually vote in swing to the Demo's. VA accepting that....The winds are blowing the other way, for balance, of course. Everyone should slave for earning's, if they can. This is the Corporate mentality of Capitalism! Most are more interested on maintaining the family unit(village). The village is the community. We are lacking stability in Community, these days. The money wells dry up...Stake out another claim!  I know the rain must fall, sometimes, and floods inundate lives....The competition is fierce for 1 job, with 1,000 applicant's. Maybe, some of that horded money should be spread to clean up America! The Iraqi's have already robbed a bank to distribute money  to citizens that are beautifying their surrounding's, to put the Village principal into effect, to affect personal purception of environment. Soccer has fallen into the vortex of money, with truth of use, and, re-organization of displaced, unwanted's in particular zones of th games! It all point's to money, and the evil's of it!

**Update** I read a few opines about Mr. Brat, and think, He would follow Ron Paul's reasoning; according to the Constitutionalist's view. My theory, is that the rubber band has been forced th twirl to it's breaking point, and, someone who can carfully relieve the presure; should be elected from both parties. Both parties have suffered approval rating's. It may take a Texas size litigator, or group, to save this destiny to the crashing economy site. 

 

I heard today that there  were to be sent,600 specialist's, back to Iraq....And whisp's of CIA envolvement(nothing new). One dark look is a severed part of the Country, under control of Saudi, and, you can bet those oil fields will be part of this annexation. Are we about to play energy monopoly with both, Ukraine, and Iraq? George Carlin had a solution in fencing off reprobates in those 4 square States. Fence em off!Landmining the perimeter is optional, but a well placed .......I viewed disturbing vids of ISIS(Levant)

Quoting Diana3316:

Hmmm….I don’t know much about David Brat and so far he has remained holed up in his house avoiding the spotlight since the election.  One can only presume he feels woefully unprepared to respond to media questions about his positions on important national issues.  But when I look at his eyes, he frightens me…..steely blue and reminiscent of bygone days.

 

 

From Wikipedia:

 

On capitalism, Brat writes that it is here to stay and that we need a corresponding church model.[46] He asserts that Jesus had faith and made things better, but Christians have become a bit passive.[46] He stated that Hitler's rise "could all happen again" as he came along and "did not meet with unified resistance" from Christians.[42][46] Brat believes that countries with Protestant pasts have economic advantages over countries that don't, and that Protestantism "provides an efficient set of property rights and encourages a modern set of economic incentives" that often lead to "positive economic performance".[43] He believes in Christ as a transformer of culture, and that capitalism is the key to world transformation, which can be achieved when capitalism and Christianity merge; if people follow the gospel, and as a consequence make people good, he argues, then the markets will improve.[47]

Quoting 3345roc:

Dr. David Brat's victory may portend the future.  Virginia is a pretty savvy state and his victory was not won by the Tea Party it was won by a man who appealed to his constituents, who his students say can take complex issues and state them simply.  Cantor, like most politicians who stay too long, became part of the problem that's led to this political divide.

 

It's doubtful immigration reform will be decided on Obama's watch.  Immigration reform is policy legislation that is sorely needed.  Amnesty is nothing more than voter registration for the Democratic party.  Obama calls these "Dream Kids" the future of our country.  What he really means is that these kids are the future of the Democratic Party.  What about the future of Mexico, Columbia and Ecuador and the other countries these kids come from.  Are they not entitled a future?

Hmmm.....I doubt it Leo.  There's no movement toward the center....or rationality.  I think the Republican Party is being eaten alive by these Tea Party radicals.  If the establishment members ram McCarthy down their throats in a hurried vote before they, the TPs, can organize themselves....it will be all out war!!  I just hope Nancy doesn't hurt herself dancing. 

 

It serves them right.  They created a Frankenstein and now don't know what to do because they are afraid of it.  I don't think even William F. Buckley could do anything about it.  The John Birch Society has come back from the dead!

 

PS:  Did you see where the Alabama GOP is offering a $1000 reward for anyone that can report a voter fraud incident that leads to a conviction?  So far they have had 4 cases reported, with only 2 being investigated seriously!  They can't even find any voter fraud when they are paying for it!!!  But keeping Grandpa from voting is just fine.

This move to McCarthy,R,Calif. as Maj. Leader of the Rep. wing may be a signal of a more centered Conservative move with the GOP, that will distance itself from the Tea Party fringes of the No vote. While, finance is most important these days, Immigration might get a positive spotlight, along with the tie-in to Education. California, in some hispanic minds, was land they were chased from. I wonder if his housekeeper's are Hispanic. I also wonder what goes through their minds, vaulting the fence in some manner.  You've got to have 40' tall fence's, i tell you. Look for catapult's when that happen's. Rodriguez is needed on his job, in Vegas. 

I've Been Everywhere"

I was totin' my pack along the dusty Winnemucca road,
When along came a semi with a high an' canvas-covered load.
"If you're goin' to Winnemucca, Mack, with me you can ride."
And so I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside.
He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand.
And I said, "Listen, I've traveled every road in this here land!"

[Chorus:]
I've been everywhere, man.
I've been everywhere, man.
Crossed the desert's bare, man.
I've breathed the mountain air, man.
Of travel I've had my share, man.
I've been everywhere.

I've been to:
Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota,
Buffalo, Toronto, Winslow, Sarasota,
Wichita, Tulsa, Ottawa, Oklahoma,
Tampa, Panama, Mattawa, La Paloma,
Bangor, Baltimore, Salvador, Amarillo,
Tocapillo, Baranquilla, and Perdilla, I'm a killer.

[Chorus]

I've been to:
Boston, Charleston, Dayton, Louisiana,
Washington, Houston, Kingston, Texarkana,
Monterey, Faraday, Santa Fe, Tallapoosa,
Glen Rock, Black Rock, Little Rock, Oskaloosa,
Tennessee to Tennesse Chicopee, Spirit Lake,
Grand Lake, Devils Lake, Crater Lake, for Pete's sake.

[Chorus]

I've been to:
Louisville, Nashville, Knoxville, Ombabika,
Schefferville, Jacksonville, Waterville, Costa Rica,
Pittsfield, Springfield, Bakersfield, Shreveport,
Hackensack, Cadillac, Fond du Lac, Davenport,
Idaho, Jellico, Argentina, Diamantina,
Pasadena, Catalina, see what I mean-a.

[Chorus]

I've been to:
Pittsburgh, Parkersburg, Gravelbourg, Colorado,
Ellensburg, Rexburg, Vicksburg, Eldorado,
Larimore, Atmore, Haverstraw, Chatanika,
Chaska, Nebraska, Alaska, Opelika,
Baraboo, Waterloo, Kalamazoo, Kansas City,
Sioux City, Cedar City, Dodge City, what a pity.

[Chorus]

(I've been everywhere)

Quoting leonicvirgo:

Always on the attack, Roc! You fit the pattern of a psychopath. There are many on ascending levels of social order. Most are harmless. The few way up there are killingly dangerous. Most politicians herd with psychopathic types; trying to innundate the masses with the bully position, and trap society in a cage.This does not work in present society. Most of the people, in the past, accepted the mis-truths of propaganda, our Officials spewed on the Campaign Trail. Not this group(20's-45's). The veil continues to be lifted on problems debated with Candidates, yet, not acted upon thoroughly. 

A new budget of around a half trillion dollars has been proposed for Defense, by the House Of Representatives. It goes to the Senate, now, to be scrutinized. Many more social programs will get the axe if this is passed. This, according to the Constitution, is how, WE THE PEOPLE, fund vital areas of AMERICAN SOCIETY, and outward displays of power, worldwide. It seems to be on critical life support, even before it is ambulated to the Senate. Budget's for over-running premiums on futuristic military aircrafts will be one hot topic.

I looked at a documentary of a main officer in charge of knowing every problem of every plane on the manufactoring line . A procurement team backs him up, to oversee the cost of each plane being assembled, overcharges due to manufactoring errors charged back to the American People,  real time delivery of aircraft according to original cost estimates, and proofs before delivery of each plane delivered to each branch of the military(Some differences in configuration's noted). These are 2 billion dollar planes. Someone should watch the light in the dome of the Capitol. It will burn bright for a while on this, and other balances to fair dispersement of funds, vitally important to keep America not only afloat, but  flying in the future!

Not Strange...Thanx,SweetlyAmazing...Like a Tea Blend..:-)LV1.............Keith Sykes

Hey, I'm not strange, I'm just like you
I like to do what normal people do
I comb my face and shave my hair
And keep a live chicken in my underwear

 

Chorus:
I'm not strange, I'm just like you
We're not strange, We're just like you
I'm not, I'm not, I'm not, I'm not strange

I'm not strange, I'm just like you
I've got the very same frustrations too
You should have seen me at the bar last night
I like 50 cents 'O'gettin' me just right

 

Chorus

I'm a real good guy, now that's no shit
'Bout half the time I'm full of it
I like to smoke and drink and have fun
Jump in the lake&see how far I can run

Chorus

I don't start anything that I can't end
You know I even got married to my girlfriend
In the morning I like bacon and eggs
And I've got balls nads between my legs

Quoting sweetlyamazing:

Actually an artificially low interest rate environment caused this. So the Fed had loose monetary policy with QE3 they purchased fixed income securities which keeps interest rates down. There's no way you can't have growth with virtually no interest rates. All in all it will be interesting to see what happens when QE3 comes to an end. It will be interesting to see where investors start looking for returns.



Well, The top of the structure is  suffering base restructuring, Every 70-80 years. Inflation feeds itself, in a 0 interest society.Should not, finance, be spent on infrastructure, and ail's of our society(Sync 50/25):-)LV1). Our people want to work! The rest like the liquid, cow patty smell!

There's no fool like an old fool.  When you mentioned you were a former Marine and in the securities business I pictured you in a cute little uniform wearing a gun, which I think, you would look fetching in.

 

Anyway, the Fed will continue to keep interest rates low for a year or so.  They don't want inflation to spike.  70% of GDP is consumer spending which has been flat this year, due in part to inclement weather.  The remainder is comprised of Fed spending and import/exports.  Inflation could have a negative effect on consumer spending and trade deficits.  I doubt the markets will have a banner year like last year but it's still the best place to park extra cash.

Hahah.....Leo.  I don't care about Roc or what he thinks.  I hope he will continue to banter with me, because he gives me a platform on which to bounce the ball.  I'm not trying to win his opinion......I'm speaking to the readers, with the hope that it will make them think....just a little.....about the world they are in and the kind of legacy they will leave behind for their children.  Of course there's also the entertainment factor.  Who want's to read a bunch of poetry all the time?  :))  *wink*

 

PS:  A physician friend said to me, "You walk into any hospital and it sounds like the United Nations.  When I get called, I invariably have to ask them to spell something because I can't understand what they are trying to say."

 

Believe me....if you get sick and have to go to the hospital....you better have an alert, intelligent friend to sit by your bedside to advocate for your care and safety!!  I'm jus' sayin'......



I'm in that position now, with one of my sis's. A 3 ring circus, still, and mounds of paperwork. I've gone through the talk circuit. Now; the problem verification circuit with paper. Some heads may roll with this one. I look at this as failure to push the right keys on their side. My feeling is money, or lack of it to a person's need. This usually makes more bureaucracy(SplchcrPlez). The hole is wide, deep, and has unstable ground. I'm speaking of the Adult Elderly, not VA; but, both have systemic problems.

Actually an artificially low interest rate environment caused this. So the Fed had loose monetary policy with QE3 they purchased fixed income securities which keeps interest rates down. There's no way you can't have growth with virtually no interest rates. All in all it will be interesting to see what happens when QE3 comes to an end. It will be interesting to see where investors start looking for returns.

Quoting 3345roc:

Diana... Come on now.  We agree on almost everything important.  I despise all politicians and you despise as subset of them.  I'm socially liberal, your totally liberal. although I don't really know what that means  I'm for maintaining a safety net for those in need.  Unfortunately, gaming the system is at an all time high, the Fed has neither the resources nor the incentive to stop it and a great deal of our tax dollars go to those who have made cheating the system a career and quite a few of them are not citizens and are here illegally.  Poverty will not go away by throwing money at it.  Think "if you give a man a fish he'll eat for a day, if you teach a man to fish you'll feed hime for a lifetime".

 

I'm in favor of universal healthcare but rather have it run by an organization with a track record of success.  I have no problem with the Fed collecting taxes and funding the program but not administering it.  Think USPS....

 

I am, however, fiscally conservative.  If the Fed continues to spend more than it receives the piper will come calling and we might have to "press 3" for Chinese.  You praised the current administration for reducing the deficit but ignore the fact that they will probably add as much to the National debt as all previous 43 administrations and at a time when the economy is trudging along at an paltry 2-3 % growth.

 

I think you're naive to think that the Dems are any different from the Pubs.  They know what side of the bread is buttered, are in bed with the rich who provide them the opportunity to get rich, be corrupt, accept bribes, live privileged and be unaccountable.  Congress is a Millionaire's Club".  An exception is Joe Biden.  He's 72 and he was elected to Congress when he was 30.  42 years a politician and he's not a millionaire.  It seems to me that the reason is obvious... only two working  brain cells.  One is solely devoted to controlling that stupid smile he always seem to sport.. I swear, the man is devoid of a central nervous system.  The second brain cell is dedicated to coordinating the activity between his foot and his mouth

 

@ Leon... I noticed "Roc" in your post... everything else was unintelligble.


Always on the attack, Roc! You fit the pattern of a psychopath. There are many on ascending levels of social order. Most are harmless. The few way up there are killingly dangerous. Most politicians herd with psychopathic types; trying to innundate the masses with the bully position, and trap society in a cage.This does not work in present society. Most of the people, in the past, accepted the mis-truths of propaganda, our Officials spewed on the Campaign Trail. Not this group(20's-45's). The veil continues to be lifted on problems debated with Candidates, yet, not acted upon thoroughly. 

A new budget of around a half trillion dollars has been proposed for Defense, by the House Of Representatives. It goes to the Senate, now, to be scrutinized. Many more social programs will get the axe if this is passed. This, according to the Constitution, is how, WE THE PEOPLE, fund vital areas of AMERICAN SOCIETY, and outward displays of power, worldwide. It seems to be on critical life support, even before it is ambulated to the Senate. Budget's for over-running premiums on futuristic military aircrafts will be one hot topic.

I looked at a documentary of a main officer in charge of knowing every problem of every plane on the manufactoring line . A procurement team backs him up, to oversee the cost of each plane being assembled, overcharges due to manufactoring errors charged back to the American People,  real time delivery of aircraft according to original cost estimates, and proofs before delivery of each plane delivered to each branch of the military(Some differences in configuration's noted). These are 2 billion dollar planes. Someone should watch the light in the dome of the Capitol. It will burn bright for a while on this, and other balances to fair dispersement of funds, vitally important to keep America not only afloat, but  flying in the future!
