    Bingo! An Economist. These guys know nothing of money and value. They probably think their standard of living has gone up over the last two generations. Ha ha ha

    I'm old and my doctors talk to me about what is healthy to eat. Fat and sugar are our enemies. Maybe taste also! The carnivores we are. If you want to live to be a old carnivore, less fat and sugar.

    Reminds me of the Vaudeville act: comedian on stage remarks "I'm too young to die." moves stage left and says "I'm too young too die." again stage rear and says "I'm too young to die." and eventually stage center and says "And now I'm too old to live!" Ha ha ha

    And plenty of space. We've almost half again (lower 48) as large but with only a ninth of the people (but cities are cities).
    Stake a claim before China does.
    Sorry, no Homestead Act. You could try Alaska too.
    Keep in mind that (I regard) Stephen Harper is scarier than Dubya.

    There is nothing wrong with my English, but you have a problem with prejudiced spin. We have been on a downward slope for decades. However Obama has us in free fall. Never before Obama has the USA under any other President from George Washington on up have we been downgraded. Under Obama we have been downgraded twice in 2 years. No President has served a full 4 year term without a budget except Obama. No one except Obama increased the national deficit by $6 triilion in less than 4 years. Presidents who served 8 years did even come close to that amount. You like most Finger Pointers and Bush bashers unemployement was under 5% for most of his 8 years. You are entittled to your opinion as bizzare and partisan as it maybe, but you are not enttled to you own facts.

    It's our not are- and you reps keep talking about obamas first 2 years as if all the problems that existed at that time were going to be solved so quickly- fact is that we are in a better place now than 4 years ago and I am not prepared to go backwards now- people deserve more protection than corporations and it's a fact that trickle down economics don't work- didn't work in the 80s won't work now or did you forget that a vast majority of the national debt came from defense spending in the 80s- and interest on that debt- you say we are in free fall but employment is up- the Dow is up and the future looks good as long as we stay on track

    At which point did I express prejudice? Did I judge you? No clearly not and I have written nothing but verifyable facts- just because you don't like it doesn't make it less true- what flavor is the kool-aid this week? Enjoy yourself and try to get your facts from somewhere other than fox news ok buddy

    We should be rebuilding our country with something of value. Not this worthless junk we call money. Maybe if the government stopped printing three billion digital dollars a day, we could stop the devaluation of our currency.
