Wrong again

March 22, 2013

Once again Mr. Mason is wrong. The only reason the stock market has ticked up is that Ben Bernanke has been instructed to print money. Period....

Conservatives are the ones doing the screwing.

Wow, where to start. On second thought, just forget it. Regardless the argument I was going to rebut, it wouldn't matter. Conservatives have created their own universe where observable and knowable "facts" have been created out of thin air and are fed through the conservamedia sealed information loop.

No past republican can make it in today's Republican party.

By the definition of today's Republican party, Ronald Reagan was an extreme liberal. He granted amnesty to "illegals", raised taxes about a dozen times, and supported banning AK47's. The budgets he proposed also ran HUGE deficits, as he was a fan of deficit spending.

Today's Republican party bears ZERO resemblance to the party of Reagan.

If you were a little smarter, or even just the slightest bit curious, you'd be asking yourself what happened.

Reagan worked with a Democrat-controlled congress and did not whine about them like our current POTUS.

" Those actions were taken as a "compromise" with promises from liberals"

The Strategic Defense Initiative was a "compromise with liberals"?

Our little crack head.

You know erik, Ronald Reagan liked to spend him some money too. He also seemed to enjoy granting amnesty to immigrants. He used to be considered the gold standard of the conservative movement.

Has what Reagan did change in the last couple years, or did the conservative movement change?

Also, in the vein of my original question, are you saying President Bush was a "liberal Democrat"?

" Neither were conservatives as evidenced by their spending.....which most of us opposed."

You wrote a lot of letters to the paper criticizing them?

I know I posted here while Bush was President, and I don't really recall a conservative EVER criticizing President Bush here on this forum.

What are you like karate men, and you onlybleed on the inside?

Bush41 and Bush43 were not conservatives. They did "reach across the aisle" and included many moderates and liberals in their administrations.

Neither were conservatives as evidenced by their spending.....which most of us opposed.

"Bernanke announced that they will continue pumping $85 billion of fictitious money into the economy every month....

If it does, just remember who is responsible.....liberal Democrats"

Are you trying to say that Ben Betnake is a "liberal Democrat"? Perhaps you should investigate how he came to be in charge of the Fed (hint: he was appointed by George W Bush), or what he was doing with his time immediately before his appointment to run the Fed (another hint: he was George W Bush's Chair on the Council of Economic Advisors).

Doesn't seem like a "liberal Democrat" to me.

Brenda, why respond to Mr Mason? You will never convince him to see anything in another light. He is blind with hatred of the other side and this blindness hinders his ability to even open the door to anothers view. The stock market is emotional too, many MANY experts believe it will need correcting and like the last collapse, it will be painful. The policies of excessive printing of money will create inflation (probably long over due). the balance sheet of our country has debt it can't possibly cover and it too will be a drag and result in stresses that will impact business and the markets. Its great to make some money with the flash in the pan going on, but its the long run you must look at and the amount of participants investing.

Bernanke announced that they will continue pumping $85 billion of fictitious money into the economy every month.

Stocks are being purchased with treasury notes.

There is no substance behind those stock purchases.

This is very dangerous and can get out of control quickly.

If it does, just remember who is responsible.....liberal Democrats.
