Gotta love the Huffington Post...Arianna Huffington the female version of George Soros.
I read both of Obama's books before his election and that was enough to keep him from getting my vote. If you want to know the man, read his books :Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance and The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream. @getreal, why wouldn't it just go away? I does eventually for all of the rest, Like JFK's affair, Nixon and Watergate, Bill and Monica, and let us not forget G.W.B and his cocaine days.
People blame guns and the background checks used to get guns...Aren't people accountable for their actions anymore?? Crazy people will find a way to kill. I remember people taking over planes with box cutters....anyone else remember this story.....?
Jason, Obama is not to blame. People that voted him into office are.
PS Germany is an anomoly because they make a concious decision not to borrow, borrow, borrow. Them being an anomoly has nothing to do with my beliefs...oh wait "faulty beliefs" I never said that Americans couldn't learn from Germany. We def. could but we never will, not until we go through an econmic climate similar to what they had after WWII. We won't move in that direction on our own...asnd we won't go there just because our President thinks it's best for the country.
Jason, I never said you responded to Germany. Which just proves what I was saying. My point was the way they choose to live is why they are an economic power. Germans choose not to live beyond their means (something most credit card using Americans can't imagine) as do their other sucessful neighbors. I take it that is all made up BS too. I'm done losing time talking to you on this issue. You have your mind made up that the EURO caused the collapse of those countries. I won't argue that the EURO has def. been a major contributing factor. But one last time I will say, that entitlements and a lack of work ethics are just as much a part of the problem.People get lazy when socialist ideas are implemented. I'm not accusing you of being a socialist, I'm just stating "what I believe to be true" :)
Jason, you missed the point of the link I posted. It was to show you that the countries that are doing well in the EU (i.e. Norway) are paying extreme taxes and they also have natural resources to rely upon. I personally don't wish to give 47% of what I earn to the government. And you totally missed the boat on what I was saying about Germany......
Jason, do yourself a favor and read about Norway's taxes and tell me that you would love a VAT...I know you would. You sound like you don't mind giving away your hard earned money.. Maybe they will take you in Norway....that is if you are willing to work for a living.
