    I hate to be the one to tell you, but the US no longer produces anything.

    It's a service-level economy now.

    So by your own standards - you're in a world of shit right now.

    Stop listening to Obama and start growing a brain and realizing that while you were counting your 'enterpreneur app store' eggs before they hatched, massive European-style austerity is looming around the corner.

    In this world, you look out for yourself and your immediate group only. That is how it has always been.

    LOL.

    With that attitude the elite will ream your clock and badly.

    But then again - 'socially backwards autistic nerds' are hardly the people to go to for social-economic sound policies - so I'm not surprised to see you all adhering to this 'everyone for themselves' axiom - you don't know any better. But it will absolutely fuck you up and set back the clock for another good 10-20 years before you realize just how destructive that mentality is.

    In a world where 'you look out for yourself and your immediate group only' - guess what happens dipshit?

    The banks look out for themselves and their immediate group only.
    The government looks out for itself and its immediate group only.
    The EU looks out for itself and its immediate group only.
    The entrepreneur looks out for himself and his immediate group only.
    The customer looks out for himself and his immediate group only.

    Everybody tries to scam everybody thinking that only they 'matter', and guess what happens then Sherlock? Your society COLLAPSES - in slow motion .That is what is happening in Europe because it got corrupted by the same virus that America is corrupted by, and this is also what your piece of shit mentality is bringing to the US. A society that works by 'scamming other people' DOES NOT WORK. Libertarian crackpot philosophies don't work. 'Everybody fends for themselves' is what led Britain to ruin under Margaret Thatcher's regime - which is why they are now a post-industrial rubbleheap.

    And here you are talking about 'welfare doesn't work ' when it's predominantly US companies that move to Holland to get a 'Dutch double dip sandwich' so they don't have to pay any taxes. Socialism run by the big banks and business indeed does not work. But notice - you autistic nerds are so pathetic that you waive your RIGHTS to even program in your own spare time to one of these pathetic companies if it means you can get an NDA from these shitty companies. You have no standards - no backbone - no integrity - no nothing - and the Human Relations department always wins.

    Programmer nerds these days are the most spineless pathetic people around - zero integrity, they don't believe in unions (so they are easily the boss' bitch and can be treated and exploited like a professional wrestler or somebody who doesn't enjoy any worker's protection), and generally what they are is socially maladjusted cowards that just want to disconnect from the world and 'not give a shit'. It's sad that people who are highly skilled workers are content with sweatshop working standard conditions from their employers. Time to grow a backbone and realize that 'competing with China/India' is going to end up very badly for your living standard - and these IT managers won't give a shit if you get taken down a few notches in that department - perpetual crunch time for all is their motto.

    Ohh yeah. It's not like there have been any bombings in Madrid or London or anything.

    Those were actual terroristic events.

    This is nothing. This is about a handful of people dead by two people brought up on a culture of 'ultra-violence' - you reap what you sow. It's tragic for the 10 or so people that got killed, but seriously - it is not in any way even a newsworthy event. Get over it - get on with your life - it's insignificant to what is really important right now - which is that Obama is gutting Medicare and depriving the sick, the elderly, the needy, the crippled who need a social safety net THE MOST.

    If you can only get worked up over amateur bombs set up by Chechens but not by actual real working class struggles - then you are going to lose big. Sorry for breaking it to you but you are falling for pathetic 'wedge issues' and nonevents. Focus on something important - this Boston bombing is jack-all important in the grand scheme of things.

    The american economy is worth dozens of trillions of dollars right now. And Rising. Hell, Texas by itself is the 6th largest economy in the world. If you don't think we produce anything, then WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU BITCHING ABOUT?

    Thing is, your economy is also having to shoulder a ludicrously large amount of national debt. And that is what worries the economists.

    Understood and I agree. Unfortunately I'm not the one in charge. There is a large socialist group in the US that believes that spending debt will influence the economy to grow. I disagree. I think reducing debt (reducing debt = spending less) and saving money in a surplus account would allow for lower taxes. Relieving taxpayers from giving their hard earned dollars to the government would help tremendously. I'm not saying the government should start hoarding money either. That would be be just as bad. But they should keep a substantial surplus available.

    Then you are a damn moron if you believe that - because this 'reducing the deficit' garbage is what is killing Europe right now.

    Really - step off your crackpot Ron Paul/Rand Paul Libertarian theories concerned with 'reducing the deficit' and all this claptrap - now if you're a Southerner I understand why you think like that but damn son - can't you aim a little higher than that garbage?

    BTW - if you want your 'Ron Paul/Rand Paul' President so badly - I have a suggestion for you - move over to Holland - we already have a 'Ron Paul/Rand Paul' government over here in control that believes in privatizing goddamn everything including your drinking water. And guess what their economic policies spell to the country? S-L-O-W DEATH.

    And people believe modernday Europe is ruled by 'socialism' - yeah right - perhaps Americans want to point Europe on a map again and start revisiting their ancient theories on Europe - what is 'sweeping' Europe right now is Republican far-right libertarian crackpot ideas concerning 'economics'. Socialism is not your problem right now in Europe - it is so far gone there is no socialism left - but fascist Libertarian crackpot ideals are.
