    The bones and bottle on the cave floor provides a good summary of this perfectly sound economic theory.

    The key word is the last word – “was”, not “is”.

    living beyond justifiable means, no end in sight. how’s that for theory. no wait, that’s a metaphorically twisted aphorism.

    Sounds like a typical Communist to me. Hey, Cuba and North Korea, how’s that From-Each-According-to-his-Abilities thing working out for ya?

    (I recently saw that the North Korean government has reduced the minimum height requirement for conscripts into their army… from 4’11” to 4’2”. Nationwide starvation will do that to you.)

    Also- “Seemed like a good idea at the time!” Of course, you get the temperature moderation of being underground; near-constant 67oF or so. And yeah, that cave has been a set just recently for an art project.

    And ain’t it nice the Koreans feel the need to conscript; we just give ‘em an alternative to poverty and unemployment (without health care, ‘unemployment insurance’, etc.)

    I don’t think he’s talking about communism, I think he’s talking about supply-side economics. It’s caused recessions and sky-high deficits every time it’s been tried, but conservatives are full of excuses for why that’s really liberals’ fault.

    Aren’t they the couple that were living around their car, naked in the woods a few months ago? They are really moving on up!

    Seeing N Korea’s little sqirt leader next to big ol’ Bill Clinton last year was pretty funny. Little dude actually claims to get 2 or 3 holes in one everytime he golfs.

    You live in a cave? Luxury! We had to live in a cardboard box, in the middle of the street. Work 25 hours a day…

    I hope they’ve paid their estate tax on that cave

    A major problem with trickle-down economics is that the rich waste their riches on luxury items, including drugs…

    Then again, if poor folks got more money, a good-sized chunk of it would get wasted on necessities, such as food, clothing, shelter, alcohol, tobacco and other drugs…

    In terms of overall efficiency (the greatest good to the greatest number), my guess is that the poor spend more wisely than the rich - being cold and hungry kinda does that to you…

    Does he expect her just to cave in like she did when he proposed the plan?
