    Nice assclown post to stir the pot.

    If Patrick wanted to increase traffic to this site, he would post pictures of scantily clad women like these.







    If you need more examples, I can do further research.

    RBEC, you are the slimy, barking pestilence that crawls from a camel's asshole after it eats dead, maggot-ridden rats and monkey shit scraped from the jungle floor. Only not as rhetorically elegant.

    Thats pretty disingenuous considering:

    The trend actually reached its peak somewhere in the middle of the Reagan administration, and trended most sharply downward during the tail end of Bush Jr and Obama's watch.

    1. Reagan's massive changes to tax and trade didn't occur until 1983.
    2. They would not have even started to impact the economy until 1984.
    3. It's obvious that any economy would take several years to adjust as people learn to take full advantage of the new laws.
    4. The only significant INCREASE to taxes on the rich occurred during the Clinton administration in 1993. Otherwise ALL tax and trade policy, including that under Obama was passed by Republicans.
    5. I don't blame/credit presidents. I blame/credit policy. The policy trends are crystal clear and cannot be rebutted by you or anyone else. Taxes on the rich have been decimated from 1983 onward.

    So how am I being disingenuous?

    He might as well be asking "Prove a rising thermometer causes ice to melt".

    Idiocy.

    Inflation is the natural result of consumers increasing their demands on production thereby moving money, creating jobs, and growing the economy. Inflation generally means wages are increasing. Inflation generally means things are getting more expensive because people are living better and spending more money.

    Inflation isn't the goal. Inflation is simply one measurement of success.

    Unfortunately the same can't be said about deflation. Deflation causes people to hoard cash. Deflation causes people to delay purchases. Deflation prevents investment and crushes jobs. Deflation is an evil all by itself.

    80 years ago during the last Great Depression, everyone knew deflation had serious horrible economic consequences. It's only because most of the citizens who lived through that event are dead that the Ayn Rand re-education camps can again try to convince people that they would be better off if prices were dropping.

    Very sad state of affairs. 3 years and counting until this charade is terminated.

    Bankers aren't scared..... why should they be ?

    Certainly not after using Attorney General Holder's back as a doormat to wipe their feet on for over six years.

    She hasn't legislated a GODDAMN thing but the furthermore of her own goddamned career on the backs of native Americans and at the expense of those who honestly thought that she would do a damn thing to change things.

    She's gotten a lot of mileage out of playing Captain obvious while giving the false illusion that she was going to do any damn thing at all.

    Wouldn't it be great if she had? I mean really!

    A trend that started with Reagan and the massive radical changes to our tax and trade codes was not Obama's fault.

    In fact it is currently the Tea Party that wants to make these changes even more extreme.

    Vote Republican, cut your own financial throat. It's as simple as that.

    Elizabeth Warren makes sense

    Only if you've been beating yourself between the eyes with a 2X4 for two solid hours. Then she's the pinnacle of wisdom and knowledge.

    Voting Republican has consequences.

    Extend the trend line to 2017, compare it with 1929, and then you'll understand why I'm going to be right.

    Real dollar tax receipts are indeed lower, but you're ignoring second-order effects along the imaginary axis, plus other interactions in the j and k quaternion coordinates.

    At lower tax rates these generate time dilation through the quasi-Hilbert stress-energy tensor, resulting in the same revenues (real and imaginary) collected per unit time, and hence more revenue collected per year. Essentially, the total revenue (in an inertial frame) in real dollars remains constant, but years become longer, more than compensating for the shortfall.

    Therefore another tax cut, which would place Kansas into a region of higher spacetime curvature, would generate far higher revenues than Kansas has historically achieved.

    The solution is clear: another tax cut.

    Some people get so fixated on the arithmetic that they can't zoom out and see the big picture.

    Rent only declined because landlords all over America feared the same result.
