RE: Condescending Rice tells all...
Its even more complex than that. For whatever reason, different people "see" the same events/ circumstances differently. Even if they try to report objectively, its a diffucult thing.
As for politicians, or politically driven people, or even "useful idiots" it gets even more difficult.
I am still waiting for agreement on the premise that lowering tax rates has always led to greater revenues flowing to the government. Liberals always ignore that point and want to point out that the deficit climbed after Regan got his lowered rates. But, as you know, thats a completely different issue as Congress controls spending. There has to be a point of diminishing returns, but I have yet to see any ratioanl discussion with agreement from all sides. It seems that it would be easy to look at tax rates and see what happened to revenues, but for whatever reason, it hasn't happened.
I wish we could agree on the facts of a situation and then discuss the implications of those facts, but we can't even agree on the facts. What hope is there for rational discussion and resolution?
