    The Collector will come one day and won’t take an IOU.
    Funny how the libs seem so worried about our grandkids climate, but could care less if they have a lifetime of poverty.

    Debt can be renegotiated, or even in extreme cases repudiated, and the debtors are still alive.


    But if the air you breath is too polluted, you die, or if the water you drink is too polluted, you die, or if the ground you live on is too polluted, you die!! But then again in your estimation, if the future generations are all dead, then at least they would not have to worry about the debt!!

    This is Holbert changing the subject of wage slavery. The National debt has literally done NOTHING but fall since Barry O took office. It’s jobs and sensible spending on our communal future that are needed not, as implied here, deeper and tighter screwings.

    Clark, I know you will not even read this because you make a statement and leave but here is a list of the richest some odd 380 people in America.

    Take it all, will not clear the debt and all these skilled people will stop working and a lot of people would be out of work.

    “The National debt has literally done NOTHING but fall since Barry O took office.”

    Your source of information is giving you really, really bad data.

    From the U.S. Treasury Department:

    January 20, 2009—-$10,626,877,048,913.08
    February 27, 2014—$17,426,891,428,702.45

    The U.S. debt has gone up continuously since 1790.

    A corporation cannot make you buy their product. The government can (remember Obamacare?). A corporation cannot force you to pay them. The government can (it’s called taxes).
    A corporation cannot repossess everything you own, the government can (property taxes make you a renter of your own land).
    A corporation may be greedy and you may be poor but only the government can enslave you.

    History shows that your version isn’t completely true. If we look at Europe, China, or the Soviet Union as three examples of Socialist economies with high taxes we find that the “free” market simply becomes a black market and tax dodging and cheating become national passtimes.
    Those that are capable begin doing things on barter or under-the-table and everyone ignores the government to the maximum degree they can.

    Hey Overtaxed – I have an idea. Let’s cut taxes by 90%. What would we pay for? I’m guessing defense, and we will need a few dollars for the IRS (to collect the 10%). No transportation subsidies (including highways). No social services (including social security) – charity will take care of that problem. No environmental protection or drug monitoring (the market will take care of that). Happy now?

    So, are you in favor of trading revenues for cuts in spending? If not, you don’t deserve to be part of the conversation.

    If taxes on the wealthy were raised to where they used to be before they learned how to buy politicians, that cartoon would be completely wrong.

    “You’re both wrong. The debt has fallen (occasionally).”

    Your are correct, Michael. My nit-picky self doesn’t usually overgeneralize like that. There were a very few years when the debt didn’t go up.

    Cause I’m dressed up as uncle sam, but really I’m a fat wall street firm that needs to pay its ceo what could be paying for your college tuition and comfortable middle class life; but then where would we get our slaves if that were allowed to happen?
