    The debt isn’t a shark. It’s just a shadow.

    I’d like to see Mike illustrate something besides the Right’s Limbaugh line once in a while. Just sayin’…

    The military budget and estimated $90-some billion given to corporate welfare queens would be a great place to start cutting. After that we can look at no-bid contracts, fraud, and tax loop-holes.

    Yeah, but you can’t buy a bigger boat without money, aka, revenues.

    Just raise taxes and get a bigger boat. Can start with corporate welfare and defense.

    So, the lefties can only say “Tax The Rich” when taking all the money from the rich would only be a drop in the bucket- our government wastes more money than the rich have!

    BUT, these welfare parasite libs like the waste- because they benefit from it. They are fat hogs at the trough, demanding more and more, for nothing!

    A civilization can not survive when the lazy, perverted and ignorant, i.e. Democrats, run things! Future generations will curse them for the near infinite burden of debt they’ll be carrying!

    It’s just a shadow? $16 Trillion is a shadow in your alternate universe? With the 4th largest budget item being the net interest on the debt, $265 Billion, I’d say the shark is quite a bit larger then depicted.

    Shadow, you’re a troll . . .

    Or like Gore selling out to Al Jazeria before the tax hike happen for those making more than $400,000. Ever notice how the left is best at tax evasion than anyone else.

    Return is important, but social stability is, too. The rich in unstable nations will invest here as long as we appear safe. Of course, instability is connected to inequality…something to think about.

    But it is the business owner’s social responsibility to produce a good product or service first, then jobs then social altruism.

    Restore the 75% tax rates on the rich from the 1960’s.
    Even the french are smart enough to leave the country when that happens. Next bad idea.

    do they want the rest of it, too?
    short answer is yes. After this last deal there are now several calls to raise taxes again.

    I’ve been in the water with sharks in the Atlantic, and both eastern and western Pacific, including with great whites, while “wary”, never really panicked because I understood them. The sad part is that most Americans know as little about economics, and where debt came from, and what the hazards are, as they understand about sharks. Of course the sharks I really see reason to fear, given the last 30 years of the U.S. economy, are the ones on Wall Street, and in “the financial industry”, that has changed drastically since Reagan began deregulation, and pulled up the shark barrier from around our economy.
