    Hitch, it is working now just as it has worked to solve every economic downturn. Only when things are going well do some politicians screw it up with their experiments like trickle down and kill the goose that lays the golden eggs.

    Your geography is as bad as your science. Not much of the west coast is lowlands. Also, salt water isn't good for solving a drought.

    5th amendment, Stop. Some like to think it implies guilt which is exactly the reson it was made a right. The idea is you don't have to be tortured in to a confession. You have a right to remain silent even if you are an enemy combatant.

    Stretching a bit there aren't you? Consulting with DOJ when she sees a legal breach would be her responsibility.

    A Republican congressman who believes that global warming is not a threat because God has promised not to destroy the Earth has put himself forward as chairman of a powerful committee that deals with energy policy and its effect on the environment.
    Mr Shimkus stated; 'The Earth will end only when God declares it's time to be over. Man will not destroy this Earth'
    John Shimkus, an evangelical Christian representing Illinois, quoted the Bible in a congressional hearing last year on a proposed "cap and trade" legislation designed to limit carbon emissions.
    Reading from God's post-Flood promise to Noah in Genesis 8:21, he said: "Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though all inclinations of his heart are evil from childhood and never again will I destroy all living creatures as I have done."
    Mr Shimkus added: "I believe that's the infallible word of God, and that's the way it's going to be for his creation.
    "The Earth will end only when God declares it's time to be over. Man will not destroy this Earth. This Earth will not be destroyed by a Flood. I do believe that God's word is infallible, unchanging, perfect."

    "Brownback, an icon of tea party economics who was re-elected in 2014, defended his proposal to divert money from the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System (KPERS), telling the Wichita Eagle: “It’s kind of, uh, well where are you going to go for the funds? And I don’t like it, but it’s kind of what’s your other option if you don’t hit K-12 and higher ed with allotments?”

    Brownback joins fellow Republican Gov. Chris Christie in coupling large tax cuts and credits with cuts to actuarially required pension payments. In New Jersey, Christie slashed required pension payments while signing legislation expanding tax credits to corporations, and doling out a record amount of corporate tax subsidies. Many of those subsidies have flowed to firms whose executives have made campaign contributions to Republican political organizations. Last week, New Jersey pension trustees filed a lawsuit against Christie for not making legally required contributions to the state's pension system.

    Both Brownback and Christie promoted their tax cuts as instruments to boost economic growth. A recent review of federal data by the Kansas City Star found Kansas "trails most other states when it comes to job growth.” Likewise, an investigative series by Gannett newspapers recently found “New Jersey's job growth rate [is] the second worst in the nation. ... New Jersey's middle class has lost billions in income through layoffs, salary cuts and wage freezes [and] more than 100,000 job seekers have been out of work for extended periods."

    Good. then my Canadian ADRS will go up with the falling dollar and our debt will be paid down with cheap dollars. American products will be more competitive and interest rates will stay low. Who knows, maybe even gold will come back a little but I doubt it. Better to hold companies than commodities as ours prosper. Cheaper fuel prices for a year or two benefit farmers, airlines and truckers and every car owner. More capital freed up to buy other things so lower gas prices are like 50 dollars a week back in most workers pockets. Throw in a raise in minimum wage and we'll be booming.

    This year we created more jobs already than any year during the Bush administration. However, " The U.S. job market finally seems to be recovering in earnest, the digital revolution is transforming the economy into one that requires far fewer workers to sustain industries such as manufacturing, finance, business services, education and, of course, information. Many workers aiming for a middle-class lifestyle are already discovering that any job a machine can do nearly as well as a human is likely to become automated. There are more robots on many assembly lines than there are people. Bank tellers have become an endangered species as more people manage their money through ATMs, web sites and smartphones."

    He is very good with data. He knows how to select it to serve his position even if his ideas are wrong like comparing Kansas employment to Illinois. He is a die hard believer in trickle down economics. Anyone who thinks you can have more government revenue by continually cutting taxes after the idea has failed for 30 years is only there to serve the wealthy. Yes Hitch is well read and knowledgable but he is stuck trying to justify how nothing creates something. He did warn of BACs problems with derivatives 6 months before it hit the fan. He knew the paper was worthless.

    Hitch, what really happened in Kansas was the governor thought he was going to be able to pull a real fast one. Fracking was moving in to the state and he expected a boom from that. turned out the production was better in the Dakotas on a well to well basis and the rigs moved out and went there so his attempt to lower all those taxes and take credit fro a great boom failed. Boeing left the state, Beech went bankrupt, and global warming has been hell on the crops. Still he has been a terrible governor as has all of the state leadership.

    Now that is funny. California probably has more immigrants than any state.

    He did that months ago. Fastest deficit reduction, fastest recession turn around, f astest job restoration, ran up less debt in real dollars, slower government growth. The guy has been amazing when you compare him head to head with any republican president since Eisenhower.
