  1. For the past 100+ years in the USA revenue has averaged 19 – 20% of GDP. The spending average has been a bit higher, 20 – 21%.

    Right now spending is close to 24%, revenue is around 16%.

    We need to increase revenue and decrease spending.

    Tomorrow: peace in the middle east.

    1. After you crack that peace thing, could you figure out why so many Americans protect 1% of the population (a minority), but have to be forced to give other minorities basic rights? Thanks – droll

      1. joining that top 1%, even if the only “realistic” shot is winning power ball. Also, the cold war rhetoric that was so effective in scaring the public to the point that anything that referred to “the people” or “the general welfare” came to be seen as next door to communism, is still alive and well.

        Reagan did a great job of pitting working Americans against one another and against mythic welfare Queens (small potatoes compared to the corporate Welfare Kings) and making the elite, screwing them, downsizing, out sourcing and, in general doing everything with their money but creating good jobs, the heroes.

        Ever since, Dems have been too afraid of conservatives to stand up for their constituency and simply counted on the fact that their natural constituents have nowhere else to go since Rs are even worse for them. Sigh…  

        1. I think there was point where reducing taxes didn’t increase revenue.  And I’m guessing we are past that point, especially for the wealthy.  Correct?

            1. Thanks for the site.  I like the part where the critic notes that if he had produced something like the Laffer curve, he’d been thrown out of college.

    2. http://www.youtube.com/boigonf

      Garbled message but better than her airplane and kitchen ads.  Mejia’s media consultant just threw a bunch of old photographs together and called it an ad.  Get your money back James as the kids at East High could have done a similar ad for you.  

      Romer’s cupcake ad and the Hancock I never gave up spot are the two best.  

      I’m picking Romer in first place with 30% with Hancock at 20%.  

        1. If you disagree on the analysis of the ads say so.  I knocked the earlier Boigon ads but gave praise where it is due to her and Romer.  It’d be good to hear what others think of the ad wars

      1. I watched the video by New Era of the dude going to candidates’ cribs. Only Linkhart and Mejia aren’t living in opulence. All the others have homes more than 2000 sq ft. Linkhart and Mejia have right sized homes. Like most neighborhoods in Denver.

  2. New study casts doubt on natural gas (via fracking) and Climate Change

    Cornell University professors will soon publish research that concludes natural gas produced with a drilling method called “hydraulic fracturing” contributes to global warming as much as coal, or even more.

    The conclusion is explosive because natural gas enjoys broad political support – including White House backing – due to its domestic abundance and lower carbon dioxide emissions when burned than other fossil fuels.

    Cornell Prof. Robert Howarth, however, argues that development of gas from shale rock formations produced through hydraulic fracturing – dubbed “fracking” – brings far more methane emissions than conventional gas production.

  3. In addition to Carly Madison’s passing, House Rep Daniel Kagan lost his mother, and labor leader Ed Knox lost his stepson, recently. May their memories always be a blessing. If you know either of these two fine gentleman, I know they would appreciate your condolences.
