116. Re: Internet abandons the US Oct 15, 2013, 15:44 Beamer
 
I don't get how "personal responsibility" comes into play when we have such enormous unemployment amongst the poor. Is it because they're lazy and enjoy being on welfare, or is it that those jobs simply don't exist?

It's also always telling when you discuss economics with someone that doesn't understand that, while debt has some influence on the economy, it isn't nearly the factor TV makes it out to be. Spending is the real fuel. Tax on the rich isn't about the government making money, it's about making sure the money is going into the hands of people that will spend it, and making sure the wealthy have fewer reasons to cut jobs.

At this point, though, I've beaten my head against the wall on this so many times it's pointless. Some people don't learn. They don't listen. They don't display a basic understanding. They can't even formulate an argument as to what the impact of debt is on an economy like the US, other than saying "obviously being in debt is bad!" Typically they make asinine arguments about a household, as if one of the largest economies in the world can be compared to a family of 4.
