    “The dimwit Nacy Pelosi said something along those lines talking about how unemployment benefits create jobs.”

    Unless you can get the exact quote, you’re proving Dr.Canuck right.

    @d_legendary1: let me help you. Go to and type “nancy pelosi unemployment creates jobs”.
    You’ll see all kinds of references that show Nutsy Pelousy proving denis1112’s point.
    You’re welcome.

    I haven’t heard a rational economic argument from a “conservative” since 1980. Oh, well, there was: “voodoo economics”.

    Gentlemen, history has shown us that a business or government is not likely to succeed by singularly cutting or spending their way out economic difficulties. What may seem an oxymoron is to do both, as (in the whole) FDR did by creating the CCC, WPA, TVA, Rural Electrification Program, Hoover Dam project, etc., by cutting all non-essential spending while, in unison, spending heavily—across the board—on essentials.
    When the average American does not have money to spend on American products and in retail stores, either form work and/or temporary assistance, businesses tend to go out of business; which then creates an ever negatively growing economic snow-ball rolling in one direction…downhill.

    Dr. Canuck, ever hear of do as I say and not as I do? This is judge me by what I’ve done and not by what I say. I mean come on, this isn’t rocket science and this whizbang calls himself a doctor…

    Earlier this month, Zandi and co-author Alan Blinder, former vice chairman of the Federal Reserve, released the most detailed assessment of the government’s efforts to combat the so-called Great Recession. Neither economist is regarded as a partisan firebrand. Zandi, for example, backed John McCain in the 2008 presidential campaign and has advised members of both parties.

    Their conclusion: The fiscal stimulus created 2.7 million jobs and added $460 billion to gross domestic product. Unemployment would be 11% today if the stimulus hadn’t been passed and 16.5% if neither the fiscal stimulus nor the banks’ rescue had been enacted, according to Zandi and Blinder. “It’s pretty hard to deny that it had a measurable impact,” Zandi said.

    Action always speaks louder than words doc. Exactly what have the liberal minded people been doing for the last three years? And don’t forget, Bush was of the same mind – flood the market with cash. It doesn’t work. No one but government with access to OPM (other people’s money) and no restrictions (debt limit? what debt limit?) continues to borrow 40% more than they make and thinks it matters not.

    And you have won no argument Doc. Let’s “experiment”. Go take out a line of credit at the bank. Use your house as collateral. Now pay only interest for the first 5 years then inform he bank you want another loan but you don’t have any collateral – just the full faith and credit of DrC. See how much they loan you. Oh, how is the principle doing on your first loan? do you still owe it?
    You could just max out your current card, apply and get another one, max it out, apply and get another one and continue the plan. How long before the interest on the cards equals or exceeds your paycheck? What do you do then?

    What makes you think that a government can do the same and not default? Look at Greece. Everything is just peachy there, right?

    I think it’s because certain people are ‘banned’ to where they can still comment, but they are not shown.
