    d_legendary, I agree, America is a junkie and it needs to kick the habit. Easy money and cheap stuff is killing people like the heroin from Afghanistan is. Time to hit rehab and take some tough measures. But like most junkies, they are looking for one last fix. “Just one more wouldnt hurt, it feels so good”.

    Scott I am trying to not respond to you since it is nothing more than you parroting fox news fear mongering, I do want to ask, can you show me exactly in real terms, when tax cuts to the richest 5% have benefited anyone other than the richest 5%? And I dont want an answer like, “well if they have more money, they will certainly spend it and all that trickle down stuff”, I am talking about real data that proves that tax cuts to rich have an OVERALL benefit to everyone in society?

    Scott, again stop with your misplaced antisocialist tag lines. I am not Lenin’s useful idiot, you barely even know what that is, let alone understand Leninism. If you care to explain it, I would love to fact check you, but seriously, you are using that phrase incorrectly. It is like calling Obama a facist and a socialist. He is neither and certainly not both at the same time. Secondly, higher taxes on corportations do not automatically mean higher prices. Thirdly, I am not a democrat, I am a social liberal from the Netherlands. Fourthly, you didnt give a single shred of evidence for anything that you said. You didnt show how giving tax cuts to the rich would benefit everyone in society. You as usual went on a mindless rant calling everyone else but yourself a liar.

    Mindless Scott seems to have fled in the face of a demand for support for his ranting.

    I’ve stopped reading his posts altogether. They are predictable, uninformative and only enjoyable in a cruel way.

    I get more laughs from the comments than I do from the comics. This is funny stuff. Keep writing Scott, I love to quote your rants, you are hilarious.

    drooling-idiot, government-is-God crowd post their mindless Soviet-style “solutions”

    a “democrazy”, where only people espousing the most insane, unintelligent, unworkable ideas get elected to office

    sheople

    you arrogantly ignore the fact

    ignore what should be obvious to any child

    That is stark, cold, naked economic reality.

    You’re one of Lenin’s useful idiots

    Can’t you guys recognize satire when you see it? Scott is the Stephen Colbert of the comment world. Keep it coming, Scott!

    No, NeoconMan is the Stephen Colbert here. The other is simply a village idiot.

    Actually, the stock market tends to be inversely proportional to employment, when unemployment rises, so does the market. if more people go to work the market goes DOWN!

    Definitely NeoCon is the “er “con” Colbert here and Scott is manically Mr. Mean.

    Yeah I shouldnt fall for it, but he makes some comments that really set me off. I should learn to hold my tounge a little more. But I do ask for it sometimes.

    p.s I think I got flagged for my other post. I wouldnt know for what though.

    acd- I don’t know which post you got flagged for. Sometimes a number of posts vanish and it is just confusing. I am reading several of your posts that certainly get your views across very clearly so hang in there. I certainly welcome your input.

    NeoconMan asked: Who is Stephen Colbert? And what does he own?

    Actually you already own him, he’s part of your portfolio. Don’t you employ accountants to keep track of your acquisitions?

    Why don’t you guys talk about the cartoon, instead of just flaming each other. I happen to think that this cartoon is particularly good and very insightful. Ted seems to be able to say in words and drawings what many people are thinking but cannot express as well as he.

    @Dtrouma That’s because the fat cats managed to program it that way. The Stock Market accounted for only 10% of our economy. Thanks to the efforts of too big to fail they are somewhere between 30-40%of the economy.

    @Gangsta We already are.

    I prefer Chris Morris to the MTV-Paramount owned Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

    Very well said human and indisputably true. If the wing nuts respond, it will only be with cliches.
