Yes, blame the democrats, moron! Bush Jr. added roughly four trillion to the deficit while he was in office. He also passed the Medicare prescription drug act.

Wake the f*ck up, this isn't about left/right, dem/rep, lib/con, it's about elite v. poor. All politicians are crooks, working for the highest bidder.

Well at least it took Bush eight years. Obummer did that and more in two. But I agree with you on the broader point.

Obama has spent 5 trillion in 3 years. Hellllooooooooo

The point is to FIX the problem NOT quadruple down on it.

And get off Bushs dick already, jesus fucking christ how long are you fucking idiots going to bringing him up? Lets just blame this on Johnson and the Vietnam war.

People are going to stay on Bush's case as long as others try to propagate the myth that Republicans are fiscally conservative. Both parties are profligate spenders.

Who here is saying all Republicans are fiscally conservative? I don't think I have EVER heard anyone trying to say Bush was a fiscal conservative.

Shit...Kennedy was a democrat and he is a far right leaning conservative compared to todays standards.

Stevie boy, shut the F Up and go back to China ... I mean, didn't this fascist move there last year?  Anybody who thinks all of this is Obama's work is too stupid to walk around.  This course was set decades ago ... we're looking at the leeward shore now, sure - but the captain of this ship of state who set the course did it when Obama was about 9 years old.

Thank you, Thorny Xi, thank you!

As of July 1999, there has been ZERO NET NEW job creation.

They've offshored the production assets (mostly to China and India, plus elsewhere) and they've offshored the capital assets.

Wynn's people did that, and nobody else.

They can't continue to blame the politicians when they own them!

Wynn's a wussy who deserves to meet us in a dark alley some night --- then I'll really give his butt something to whine about!

"I am watching my employees standard of living drop off because of deficits. I think that the American public is beginning to make the connection between deficits and their own loss of the standard."

Can someone please explain this one to me? Where's the direct correlation? Not trying to troll or anything, just want a good answer.

Step 1. The US government runs a deficit.

Step 2. The Treasury issues bonds to raise the needed money.

Step 3. The Fed (the #1 holder of these bonds) and system of "primary dealers" magically create the needed credit to purchase the bonds.

Step 4. The new fiduciary media is spent by US gov and distributed to the early receivers, who proceed to compete for scarce resources and bid up prices.

Step 5. The late receivers of the money (you) face increased prices. The inflation of the money supply devalues the dollar and acts as a hidden tax that harms those who have cash holdings or are on fixed incomes (e.g. pensioners) the most.  Also, the economy is structurally distorted toward satisfying the government's desires (e.g. propping up Goverment Motors) and away from what the consumers would have chosen (e.g. GM liquidated).

From Alan Greenspan in 1966:

In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value. If there were, the government would have to make its holding illegal, as was done in the case of gold. If everyone decided, for example, to convert all his bank deposits to silver or copper or any other good, and thereafter declined to accept checks as payment for goods, bank deposits would lose their purchasing power and government-created bank credit would be worthless as a claim on goods. The financial policy of the welfare state requires that there be no way for the owners of wealth to protect themselves.

This is the shabby secret of the welfare statists' tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statists' antagonism toward the gold standard.

But Greenspan was a nutball so what-the-fuck does he know.

Right, I understand the inflation argument. But still, that sounds weak (see link below). Inflation hasn't been the major contributor to the decline of worker's standard of living... jobs and wage stagnation have, no?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ezra-klein/post/the-cost-of-living-is-rising-but-were-far-from-runaway-inflation/2011/10/19/gIQAmr7JyL_blog.html?wprss=ezra-klein 

And yes, I know the history of Alan, the great hypocrite of our century.

well, it's empirical, mephisto_*8*, and welcome on your #3 post!

it is what he sees;  what he is "watching"

i'm sure he knows what he means, aren't you?  maybe we just missed something.  L0L!!!

Dr_Acula and hans-el both speak to "inflation",  but:  a) deficit spending didn't cause the RE bubble to collapse or Las Vegas to turn into a depressed area, especially for "employees", and b) i sure wouldn't want to try to speak for mr whynn

maybe he'd feel better if he'd gotten arrested with cornel west.  who knows?
