I was going to chime in about the flaws of looking at a growth rate graph, but there is no way I can do better than HumanAction... genius!

@HumanAction, the slapping example is spot on. However, you can expect the libs to be too dense to grasp the concept even when it's reduced to that level of simplicity. It's called "willful ignorance."

Want to know the entire problem with this post and following thread? Imagine this scenario:

A husband comes home every day and slaps his wife once. She wisely leaves him, and eventually gets married again. Now though, every time husband #2 comes home, he slaps her twice. Wisely again, she leaves him, and remarries a third time - except now, she gets slapped three times every day.

The increase of slapping from husband #1 to #2 was 100%, while the increase of slapping from husband #2 to husband #3 was only 50%. Supposedly, according to this post and various liberals, this is progress because the increase of rate of slapping has fallen.

Wrong is wrong.

@jtrebowski: Also, I am not really sure what a thunder-buddy is, is that what you and Ken are? Must be something you Floridians do... Eitherwaye, I am not interested, I hope you two shower when you are done.

@jtrebowski: Well, we have had to deal with you ignorance slowing down this thread's progress- now its stunning inability to comprehend that is to blame. Re-read my pollution post- there are 2 scenarios present. In the 1st, your dream world rules and the EPA regulations serve as an umbrella of protection of corporations. In the 2nd, free market principals force the corporations to stand by themselves. Remember, it was the government (through the courts) who first stripped away the protections from pollution for property owners (lookup up railroad history, and for the ultimate irony guess who was behind the one in question- the government, not even business). Although the government's railroad went broke (a pattern maybe?) in short order.

Furthermore, I have noted that we have been very critical of what you say, yet nono of us have commended you for how loud or how often you say it. You are certainly wrong, but you are delirous enough to keep believing. Kudos to you!

@OldOllie: I did misread your post =P. Touche good sir.

@IAmJohnGalt: Welcome to the site. I must ask, who are you who is so wise in the ways of science?

@jtrebowski: Now Jim, can I call you Jim? Perhaps James Paul then? Anyways, Jim, I don't think Michelle would approve of your delusions. To think of it, I was actually looking at some property in Orlando - a lovely little area - Cypress Creek Dr I think.

In all reality though, if the best you can throw at me now is "Keep thinking that...please. I've seen you 'liberarians'", I'm pretty sure it's a win in my column.

IamJohGalt: ".. but the company was in EPA compliance." Try again...My scenario takes place under a Ron Paul admin., so...what EPA?

"No on a lighter note, from the above I believe it is safe to assume you are either a union member or a teacher! Ha."........Well,...you're wrong...so HA yourself.
"the company would be required to “make you whole” again. That means, you would win."
Wait..what? Now you have me suing? Little ol' me? your thunder-buddy sems to think the only thing I can do is move, so why would I be suing? Like it or not, under your precious Paul, "Toxic Sludge Co." will still have a battalion of well-connected high-powered attorneys, and as you can see..it's not

a good idea.

jt, Cato isn't conservative, they're libertarians. I'm actually a libertarian myself, but they're dead wrong on this. Over HALF of the FY2009 deficit can be attributed to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 that was passed by a Democrat congress and signed into law by OBAMA on February 17, 2009, 3 weeks AFTER Bush left office. Since I already explained that to you once, could you please explain to me, what part of that are you too f***ing stupid to understand?

What facts are misleading and what did he leave out?

@normalfreak2: It's a fact: the Dems did NOT pass any budget after March 2009, in violation of the Constitution.
For more than 1000 days they "made do" on continuations (or whatever they're called).
The author CLAIMS that 3 budgets were passed, BUT they weren't actually 'budgets' at all!
So he lied, and when a couple of commentors pointed that out, he IGNORED them.


HAHAHA! @JTreb getting schooled =

@jtrebowski: Furthermore, I can see you have an unending belief in the government “planners”. Unfortunately, they will let you down- you see you don’t have enough money to get them into office, but businesses do. Who do you actually think they will help first? After all, they do want to keep the donations coming so they can run for office again. This goes for both sides of the isle- you are just a pawn to your precious liberal politicians, as are others. And there are just as many who are pawns for the precious "conservatives".

You act like you have an insight into these topics that no one else could possibly have. After all, you are so high above the fray compared to the rest. The truth is you are in the dark and your ignorance empowers you.

No on a lighter note, from the above I believe it is safe to assume you are either a union member or a teacher! Ha.

@jtrebowski: I'll take you up on your pollution argument. You believe the EPA will protect your property from pollution- a fallacy. For the sake of this argument, let’s assume the pollution was enough for you to notice, but the company was in EPA compliance.

In this reality, if your situation went to court the company would use the EPA regulations to demonstrate they have met pollution guidelines. You see, those guidelines provide the business with a level of "acceptable" pollution, where if they stay below it, you can't touch them no matter what you and your property are going through.

On the contrary, if we were to accept free market principles here, you would simply have to demonstrate the infringement upon yourself and your property and the company would be required to “make you whole” again. That means, you would win.

@jtrebowski: By the way, I also find it funny that you've abandoned your Obama campaign since my rebuttals. Am I to accept this as your acknowledgement of defeat to a simply more capable and intelligent master?

As always, looking forward to your replies and the associated humor.

@jtrebowski: I live in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I encourage you to come here as well. We have the right to bear arms in this state, and Castle Laws =). Not to mention, you're a 40+ year old man, and I'm 23. Advantage? Me.

Do you realize that you are throwing a tantrum? I know I'm talking to a staunch liberal, but c'mon - these pouty antics are truely something.

I encourage you to move to a state more aligned with your views, such as California, New York, or Michigan. Oh wait, these are all failing liberal states with a fleeing population.

So, since you have absolutely no idea what is in the Constitution (have you read it lately?), please let me know the next time you are in Wisconsin and I will direct you to my house.

@HumamAction: No where in the Constitution does it say i have to bow to someone who invades my property. in fact, in gaurantees the right to protect it,, and in my scenario, it was invaded, but you suggested i "move". so you and your Paul-bot suggestion that i simply "move" because that person fouled up my property is the most un-American concept i've ever heard.

Ha! If we are going to make-believe Obama is the smallest spender since Ike, I suppose we may as well pretend he value individual liberty more than any president since FDR locked up all the Americans of Japanese descent. This is ridiculous. Also 2+2=22 I suppose...

@jtrebowski: Actually, it's incredibly American. Just because you say something is un-American doesn't make it so.

John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington (and others not in this list) shared my viewpoint that a republic is the fairest method of government. Perhaps you suggest that they were un-American as well?

What is un-American is the fact that you wish to wield the federal government as a sword - forcing others to bow to your beliefs. I merely suggest that the federal government not force anybody. In this way, there will be 50 different governments with 50 different sets of laws. I'm sure one of them would align with your views. Leave me to states that align with my views (like Wisconsin).

In truth, this entire argument falls to one difference: I value the Constitution, which directly lists the responsibilities of the federal government, and clearly states that all others matters fall to the states; you do not.

HumanAction: "move. I know it sucks, but that's the way a republic works."

Fighting for something that sucks isn't very American. I suggest you folks move instead.

"Lolz, the author: Rick Unger goes into the comments to defend his article! Oh so funny!
He COMPLETELY IGNORES facts which don't suit him: Congress went 1100 days WITHOUT a budget? Pays NO attention!

Gets all nit-picky when people point out the obvious: His title is grossly misleading.

Fail post + fail article = Lolz! "

What facts are misleading and what did he leave out?

What additional revenue did they create?


The additional revenue got wasted on the wars, bad policies enacted under Bush.
