    The end of the Cold War released the American leftists from the underground – out into the Congress and the White House . . . . . the real Cold War Dividend.

    One debt-ridden country for sale! Yuans and riyals accepted!

    Quite the contrary. Today’s conservatives look like the liberals of the early 20th century.

    “If only that were so. We’ve drifted so far to the right in the last 30 years that everything, to you, looks “left.””
    Explain Obama, Reed & Pelosi?

    Let’s remember what the left did in the early 20th century. Woody Wilson Segregated the Country & we are still paying for that. Roosevelt said he would fix the economy 8 years and WWII later our industry was rebuilt.

    NebulousRikulau the red ink is an old accounting statement. Red for debt black for profit. $750,000 of the red ink is a soccer field for the Islamic Freedom Fighters being held by the Imperialist Americans Of the United States at Guantanamo Bay Cuba. It was paid for by the Progressive tax payers of the United States. Hey wait?

    Reid has been in the pocket of mining and grazing folks in Nevada for a long time, plus the casino money; well Newt seems to be really dipping into THAT cash! The simple fact is that despite their tax increases under Reagan and Bush 41 in an effort to reverse the error of “voodoo economics”, that disaster REMAINS responsible for most of our debt. It should be noted that “voodoo” includes war-making to instill fear in the nation, and maintain war spending, and profiteering, no matter the cost to taxpayers, and those shedding the blood. (Think Grenada and Panama in that “overkill effect”, not just Afghanistan and Iraq.)

    At one time running up the debt was “unpatriotic” (Barack Obama on July 3, 2008, after 4 trillion of spending over eight years). Now, Obama has spent trillion over less than four years, and there’s nothing to see.

    You are a sad casualty of the indoctrination of the American youth, who bend your spine leftward in knee-jerk fashion whenever you hear that there’s a problem with the economy. Reagan’s tax policy was the same as Kennedy’s and Coolege’s, and it brought about INCREASES in tax revenues. Read this: http://www.house.gov/jec/fiscal/tx-grwth/reagtxct/reagtxct.htm and this: http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2002/12/tax-cuts-increase-federal-revenues The debt increased during the ;80’s because massive spending increases. It explains why California (the most taxed state in the country) is flat broke. It isn’t Reagan’s error, but rather John Maynard Keynes’.

    ruff, and yes, California’s base economic problems DO trace to Reagan’s time as “Governator”.

    Using the term “right-wing nuts” disqualifies you from intelligent discussion.

    @John Beam

    Anyone else remember when st reagan raised taxes 11 times. He cut them in ’81, then went on a tax hiking spree

    Eryx, as I told you in our correspondence, I try to give some leeway on the editorial pages. I do delete personal attacks, insults and name-calling, when I see them. If I see someone who’s a repeat offender with personal attacks, I’ll ban them. Most of what I’m alerted to is because of the flagging system.
    Just be sure that what you flag deserves to be flagged. I saw three people conspire to flag “libby times” every time he posts. I simply ignore the flags from those individuals. But if something deserves to be deleted, feel free to flag it.
    And trust me on this: I show no favoritism for one point of view over the other. I just want to keep things (somewhat) civil.

    “OK, I’ll explain: They’re all what was known as “moderate” just a couple decades ago. But the landscape has moved so far to the right that you’d probably feel justified calling them all communists.”

    No! We just moved so far to the left sense 2006, I am not surprised by the political back lash. Last I have never called anyone a communist on this thread. Never even thought of it, only thing I said even along those lines is; When has socialism ever been successful. No one has answered yet.
