I think that the US economy had a part in that as well... It is not so easy to separate things anymore. I'm not sure how the US can be responsible for the utter sham that is the EU. It should have been a clue when England refused to join the economic portion of the EU (and adopt the Euro) that even...

https://sheet.zoho.com/publicgraphs/545056000000231001.png It just amazes me that, time after time, you ignore the hard numbers I gave you. Fine. This graph includes military personnel, rather than bureaucrats. Strangely enough, as Bush geared up for war in Afghanistan and as the military reached f...

Oh and lastly, employment numbers would have looked better, hadnt it been for several hundred thousand jobs in the government that were cut during Obamas term in order to save money. By the way (2010 is the last year for which numbers are available): Federal Government Employees in 2008: 2,768,886 ...

Once again: The unemployment rate peaked at almost 10% by the end of 2009, before the stimulus had any time to take effect! That is much higher than the original predictions were! Since then the unemployment rate has continuously gone down. That is a fact. Of course you can always twist and bend ev...

Yes, but the numbers for the 4th quarter 2008 were not available yet at the time. These showed that the situation was way worse than ANYONE had anticipated. Once again, semantics. The numbers on unemployment and economic numbers are released 1-2 weeks after each month ends. The fact that they weren...

Actually no, the estimated extent of the economic decline was made by others before the election. IIRC, the same estimates were used by McCain (and everybody else) as well. Lying to cover Obama's lie doesn't suit the discussion. A) The "8%" number comes from a 14 page report written by Ob...

You do understand that whatever measures a government takes to defeat a runaway situation like the one when Obama came to office, would take a few years until they work, right? There is no "fix it emmediately" solution to a problem like that. Any child can understand this! Sadly for Obama...

And how will they be able to make more? How much more capital will that require? They have preorders/deposits for 10,000 models S sedans right now. That means a guesstimated 700 million in sales revenue for the next 12 months (taking slightly less than the average price for the S across all models ...

Ohh, the Solyndra... How often do we get to hear that? There were plenty of investments that did turn out fine though. Two examples: Tesla and Solar City. Uh, Tesla has yet to make a dime of profits - the Roadster, while a neat car, was a financial disaster. Added to that, Tesla was mostly built an...

Also if you are not making enough income to finance health insurance, the government will support you to a level where you actually end up paying less than 50 USD a month for a family of 4! Oh thank God, the government is going to subsidize it. I was worried for a minute that someone would have to ...

It is only a new tax for those people that have not had health insurance before. No, Skippy, this is a decision by the SCOTUS that the Congress has the right to tax non-behavior . That means that any future Congress can pass a law to tax you if you don't do something. You didn't buy a Chevy Volt? T...

Not financially sound

From their own paper, the say that producing 120,000kg of hydrogen a day will require a $750M plant in the Mojave desert. And that only produces Hydrogen at $5+ per kilogram. And given that hydrogen has a lower energy density than gasoline, that would take less than 10,000 cars off hydrocarbons. Are...

Sadly, it's all misinformation...

The "Boycott List" that's being perpetrated is a list of campaign donations from *individuals* that listed their employer on their donation (a Federal Elections Committee requirement.) The bank itself has made *zero* donations to either political candidate in the Wisconsin Governor's race....

Re: and more

I see base level public health insurance as the nearest equivalent for medicine. If you want to get prescription for your sore throat, sorry, you'll need private insurance. If your feet got run over by the lawnmower though the ER will take care of that for you, but if you don't want to wait in a re...

Re: A lot in common

If you are willing to accept or tolerate the existence of publicly funded hospitals, then I think you and are much closer to being on the same page on the matter. Except the public hospital in this city was founded in the late 1870's (if memory serves) when we were a frontier town, based almost who...
