    Buffett says, Greenspan says...

    Buffett says trade deficit is what is bad. Greenspan says fiscal budget deficit is what is bad. Who is one to believe?

    Well we all know Buffett's record. But Greenspan's has a lot of spin. Let's look at some of his insights:

    a. Just 2 days after the Dow peaked in 1973, Greenspan said, "It is very rare that you can be unqualifiedly bullish as you can be now,". That was Greenspan commenting to the New York Times when he was president of Townsend Greenspan.

    b. Just a few years ago, we all heard Greenspan tell us that the $5T of budget surplus coming down the pike posed danger to the economy and that this money should be returned before it was received. Today, we have budget deficits forecasted that dwarf what he saw as surpluses!

    Why does anyone listen to Greenspan? He's toxic.

    • Oh, please, enough with the new age babble. Of course, dictators and tyrants do destroy people and their way of life. Hopefully, this is temporary.

    • Split,

      Yes, I guess I do. I understand the "realities" surrounding meaningful 3rd party intervention.

    • I knew that dog, I was using the royal "ya'll."

      Ha, ha. I know you're one of the good troublemakers. I'm still awake. Still sentient.

      Sorry to impune your Canine Rin-tin-tin qualities.

      Woof, woof, Bite 'em in the leg, Betti

    • Alpha,

      I also believe public financing along with mandatory "air time" and "print-time" by media is necessary. Further the current practice of re-districting as seen across the country must be stopped. The process is meant to add representation to growing areas and reduce to an extent declining areas. It is not meant to be an opportunity for political pros to gerrymander boundaries to their advantage.

      By the way public financing would, I think, reduce party influence in selecting and electing candidates-an important plus IMO.


    • Betti,

      RE:"Ya'll think I'm some blonde, I know that. But each of us "radicals" are like the canary you take down into the mine shaft. We're sqwaking pretty loudly, but there is a whiff of poison in the air, and we're trying to tell you something, and you're not listening. Thus we have to exaggerate. But here, in this message, I'm not exaggerating. And I could go on."

      You're assuming my ridicule or opposition for some reason other than what I've posted. I was merely interested in what you meant in the earlier post.
