Paul Krugman is dreaming. Failure Is Good - NYTimes.com.
The Republicans are busy working on refining their plan of attack on Department of Defense (War Department) cuts.
Going for Military-Industrial Complex funding cuts with entitlement cuts does not mean Obama is a closet pacifist. He's no pacifist, closet or otherwise. He's a dyed-in-the-wool sellout -- extremely over rated in the intellect department, but which major candidate for President isn't highly overrated? None.
The smartest people in the US can't get anywhere near the Oval Office and sure can't get in any national televised debate against the Republican and Democratic nominees, and that's exactly the way the plutocrat-banksters have set things up.
Krugman doesn't have the answers. He thinks it will be time to celebrate when cuts will be across-the-board, meaning the poor will get poorer through no fault of their own -- not brilliant, Paul, not cause for celebration. The lesser of evils still stinks, Paul. Quit pussyfooting around. Listen up. Learn something about real economics. Quit pushing your fake crap.
We could eliminate the National Debt and inflation and deflation and have whatever the whole people want and need, all without pollution and Global Warming, etc., but the people are hypnotized.
If that hurts their feelings, tough. They need to wake up. They coddle themselves.
We could dump the Federal Reserve System in a heartbeat. We could issue United States Notes, which are debt-and-interest free, directly into circulation for whatever projects we need to house, feed, educate, care for, etc., everyone with a much higher quality of life than anyone (including every billionaire) is living right now and obviously without any austerity.
