    I have seldom seen such pure crap as that Komando video. Net neutrality is not something new that would be imposed; it’s the current status quo that would be preserved. Not to mention that, if it went away, so would her livelihood – unless she’s willing to bribe all those cable providers to let her in the fast lane.

    You have that backwards. We have net neutrality now; what we want is to KEEP it. The cable companies and FCC are trying to get rid of it.

    Hey, for once HQ made an actual funny! Gotta say I’m surprised nobody else seems to know the song, though.

    Plus, it’s Uncle Sam holding the spatula and being surprised. He didn’t notice or care about what happened to the other “cuts.”

    “Fair tax” – Just one more way to disproportionately tax the poor (whose income all gets spent and thus would all be taxed) over the rich (who can afford to save most of their money and thus avoid sales taxes).

    I would say you’re preaching to the choir, but I think the preaching’s my job… ;)
     
    The tax-cutters’ dirty secret is that we’ve been trying their plan for 30 years. Their theory is that giving rich people more money would encourage investment and create jobs, but the reality is that it’s sucked the middle class dry, which created ballooning personal debt and finally crashed the economy – reducing demand, which actively DIScourages investment and lowers wages. It doesn’t work.
     
    No businessman hires people out of the goodness of his heart, or because he’s making a lot of money. He hires people to meet demand. No demand means no jobs, and that’s exactly what we’ve seen in this “jobless recovery.” The rich aren’t investing – they’re sitting on their money because there’s nothing to invest IN, due to that lack of demand.
     
    Compare the ratio of a CEO’s earnings to his average worker’s earnings between 1982 and 2012. What used to be around 40:1 has shot up to over 300:1, and it’s still rising. The economy’s not going to get better unless we can turn that ratio’s direction around. (Frankly, I’d like to cap it at 100:1. Make all the money you like, but not while paying your employees crap.)

    You seem confused. Hoover’s plan was pretty much the “compromise stimulus” we got at the beginning of Obama’s term – a step, but not enough. Compare it with the bigger steps that FDR was able to make (like the WPA), which is more like what I’m calling for.

    @Habanero Hound -
     
    I think that because it’s already happened. Obama proposed pretty much exactly that, and the GOP squashed it. See http://bit.ly/1glXcmY for details.
