You only know what you read in the article. You don't know all the details and you make assumptions that are drawn from illogical conclusions based on partial information.

Hopefully it won't happen to you but if it does, I really hope you learn from the many people in the many articles you have laughed at.

Sorry.
I don't believe in Karma.

Maybe if you were SMART like Bill Gates that would be possible.
Maybe if you had good Critical Thinking skills like Bill Gates that would be possible.
Maybe if you had a good idea like Bill Gates that would be possible.

Note the pattern?


And you said you don't believe in cause and effect.

The savior, as you call him, is not, and never will be giving houses to people to live in for free.
Your savior, Bush, and his complicit senate/house members and 'business associates, created this problem.
it's world wide and quite serious.
if you choose to make it a joke, so be it.

I, unlike Mcbear, wish you fail,

will you still be touting the supreme message of the Republican party then?
Come up with some ideas besides the failed policies of the Republicans.

My advice for you and your kind is to stop living in the past.

The economic policy of the new administration has to stand on its own merit.
You seem to have a problem with that.

I don't have a problem with it?
You, however, are mocking it, and in the process, appear to be giving it no merit!
so, just a suggestion, let it work, then bash it all you want.

until then, neither of us have a leg to stand on, or an argument to make

What an idiotic justification for a record increase in our deficit.
"Letting it work" is not good enough in my book.

Here are some alternatives.
How about not doing anything ? How about not handing out $100B every other week to bailout yet another company ? How about not rewarding bad behavior ?
You get the drift.

His dad was an attorney and his mom a school teacher.

So where are the "very rich parents"? Nice excuse but it doesn't hold water.

Followup your suggestions with the cause and effect associated with them. If they are true alternatives you should have no problem building a case.
