Question of the Day Regarding the Stimulus Package

Posted by Nancy on February 4, 2009

Does it make sense — in a plan that’s supposed to “prepare America for the 21st century” — to borrow billions of dollars from China, so that we can mail out $500 checks to folks who don’t pay income taxes, so they can run down to Wal-Mart and buy more goods made in China?       Patrick Buchanan

    It makes sense to the Chinese.

    At this point I would rather citizens control the spending bill over letting this administration do it. My question is, how is it legal to tax a generation that is not even born yet? why does congress have that power? To me that would be considered taxation without representation.

  3. The thing I can’t figure out is where were you “mental giants” when Bush put us into this mess? When he gave 350 billion to the banks who did absolutely nothing with it other than pay each other, you were right there saying we don’t care tax our great grandchildren. We’re right behind you “W”. Let a black man try and dig us out of this mess and it’s “taxation without representation?” You are responsible for what your Grandchildren are going to have to pay. Tell them all about it when they see old pictures of your SUV with a “W” sticker on it.

    Is every Republican an idiot?

    Wow. Quite a grand and uniformed assumption to think that we all liked W. and his fiscal irresponsibility. Also pretty stupid to compare what he did with what is going on now. When is the last time your credit card company or mortgage holder told you you could get out of your debt faster by going into debt even more? You can’t blame W. for this. Also? quite the idiotic assumpiton to think we all align ourselves with the Republican party. I think of myself more and more as a Libertarian with each passing day.

    Libertarianism is a term used by a spectrum[1] of political philosophies which seek to promote individual liberty[2] and seek to minimize or even abolish the state.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9] There is no single theory that can be reliably identified as the libertarian theory, and no single principle or set of principles on which all libertarians would agree.”[10]
    Since the late 19th century the term often has been used as a synonym for anarchism.[11][12] Some versions of libertarianism are synonymous with classical liberalism.[13][14]

    So which one are you? I am assuming if on this site reading anything Pat Robertson has to say you’re not any of the above.

  6. This ain’t bad:

    I would be one who seeks to promote individual liberty and minimize (though not abolish) the state. Did you really think I didn’t know what I was talking about when I brought up Libertarianism? Rather arrogant on your part. And what the heck does that last sentence you typed even mean: “I am assuming if on this site reading anything Pat Robertson has to say you’re not any of the above.”? Read it out loud. It makes no sense (though it does vaugley remind me of my days working in a Chinese restaurant). Are you implying that Pat Robertson contributes to this site? Because I can assure you, he doesn’t. Are you implying we who do contribute to this site are all followers of Pat Robertson? Because I can assure you, we aren’t.
