MY THOUGHTS


I WON'T GET INTO A PISSIN MATCH OVER THIS CORONA VIRUS BUT THIS I DO BELIEVE ; THE VIRUS ORIGINATED IN A LAB IN CHINA AND EITHER BY ACCIDENT OR INTENTIONAL ESCAPED INTO THE PUBIC. ONCE IT REACHED THE US THE DEMS / SOCIALIST / LOW LIFES, SAW IT AS ANOTHER WEAPON TO USE AGAINST TRUMP SINCE THEY HAVE NO OTHER PLATFORM TO RUN ON !!angry JUST ANOTHER TACTIC BY THE TRUMP HATERS AND TRAITORS ......

These are pretty interesting. Another article described how an argumentative person will change their tone and demeanor when the "opponent" decides they have had enough, in order to draw them back in. The arguer will become complimentary and gracious. Also, they often seethe while trying to appear calm, using humor to distract from their perceived exposure of control loss.

Wasn't GW trying to gain political points by just starting the post? Yes, he was but to point out Poly, why not point out GW for starting it?

Yes. Point taken, as far as it goes. But, I'd divide GW's post in two. First portion is an accurate assertion of fact. He is correct.
The second portion was a prediction of behavior by libs. The former portion was non-political. The later, clearly political. And, again, he was correct.

Also, are you for Drumpf and the Repuke's stimulus... Based on your many previous posts we should just let the market perform without intervention... In prior posts you have advocated letting the financial system totally collapse... Are you still on board with that position, or is it "different" this time?

Hhhmmmm..... Regarding the current stimulus ideas -

First, I don't think I've been quite that categorical. While I am generally a laisse-faire kind of thinker, I don't think I've ever completely excluded any possible appropriateness of federal involvement in the economy. In fact, I kinda' like the idea of a federal reserve that manages base interest rates. If the reach of the FR would stop there, I'd be a fan. Unfortunately, the FR does much more than most people realize.

In general, without spending a lot of time looking at it, I'm still highly skeptical of these kinds of stimulus packages.

Pondering as I type.... haven't thought it through much... but, there may be a distinction between an economic slow down that is the result of an out of balance market (I'd be steadfastly opposed to bailout) and an economic slow down that is the result of a natural phenomenon/disaster.

Have I ever advocated letting our economy totally collapse? Really? I don't think I have.

I recall you mentioning a while back you were against the 2008 bail out and that we should have let it run its course and let the chips far where they may as we need to balance the budget and that was more important in the long run... This is what I recall, and perhaps there was a misunderstanding...

I also remember you advocating heavily the convention of states and the main reason being was to require the Fed government to legally have to balance the national budget each year. Essentially, can't spend more than what is taken in from tax revenue... If this would have happened how do we have bail outs of any type?

I also asked how we would cut $1.2T from the discretionary spending of $1.4T and not collapse the economy...

Reality is that markets are out of balance most of the time... If you support intervention for imbalances associated with pandemics, etc. then should they intervene when the market is over heated as it was before the event. Reality is the stock market was trading around 25 times the market PE and has historically average 17-18 times PE... Just by that ratio we are now trading at what is a historical average prior to the pandemic...

Seek help little 7costanza:

https://emotional-intelligence-training.weebly.com/treating-psychological-projection.html

c/p:
"Psychological projection and transference or projection bias, is a psychological disorder whereby people project their bad behavior, faults, failures, etc. onto another person, usually someone they do not like. They then attribute all of their failures onto others! People with this mental disorder often suffer from other mental disorders as well!

People who are struggling with this issue in general at their psychological core have “arrested emotional or psychological development” "

Projecting can be Cured...

Beautiful.

when has anyone ever suggested a total collapse. You are taking things out of context and twisting to your liking. I think obuma was wrong to bail out the auto industry and giving Billions in cash to Iran. I don't see this new pandemic being in the same boat. That said why not use Unemployment benefits for those on a temporary lay off from this?

I tell you what I'm not for... That is the Dem's slipping in money to fund late term abortion during this World Crisis.

Never heard because you ignore them. I have stated I was wrong multiples times here...

Man, you would argue with a tree... Even ole double spiNN pegged you as someone that gets something "stuck in their craw" often...

Didn't you argue with Fritz for like 5 years over whether stone ground grits were much better tasting before you ever even tried them... wink
