  1. But in closing dealerships they don't have to fulfil there contracts to supply any more cars, which saves them money right?
  2. This evaluation of decades of scientific endeavour from a guy who bases his evidence on the weather in Ontario is really useful. Thank you for your contribution, i hope those dastardly politicians listen to you and stop this evil conspiracy that is caring about the environment.
  3. 1) Because running the dealership costs money, I don't get why that's hard to understand?2) Yes, but when you're not making money by selling cars, and the cost of keeping the dealership exceeds the profit of selling cars (which in Chrsylers case is apparently negative), dealerships start to close. That's market forces for ya. 3) I imagine they're going to have considerably less costs after they've finished closing down this guy and 799 like him.
  4. I'm confused, how does this have anything to do with the government?
  5. I did a facebook quiz today and my result was 'very liberal' and a picture of Nancy Pelosi. yay.
  6. Oh shit, it's cold in Ontario? Seriously?I mean, I used to think that global warming was a theory based on mass scientific study and empirical research, but now I've discovered that Ontario is cold, It's obvious i've just been duped by those ****ing liberals again.
  7. Oh noes, how horrific, I truly feel sorry for you that the evil government is taking away all your rights as a parent and, heaven forbid, saving your child from chicken pox. I can only hope to imagine how horrible that must feel.
  8. Do you know that Keynes actually wrote an open letter to Roosevelt complaining that he wasn't doing enough?It's not just a simple theoretical matter as you put it there. Whatever Roosevelts thinking, the increase in public spending during his tenure was largely met by increases in tax revenue, meaning the budget deficit wasn't nearly as big as people think it was. Federal spending came no where close to replacing the incredible fall in GDP during the depression. Reagan, Bush and Ford all ran much bigger budget deficits during there time in office (fiscal conservatives don't ya know) and this w
  9. Just throwing this out there as well- Roosevelts actions in the great depression weren't really an example of 'stimulus' spending at all. People have this idea that Obama is imitating him and that we're experiencing the second new deal, but in relative terms this stimulus package and concurrent budget deficit is in a totally different league to the real 'new deal'. Contrary to popular belief, Roosevelt's economic policies weren't an example of Keynesian economics at all. I don't suspect that'll change anyone's respective view on the success/failures of his presidency, but it's a big misnoma th
  10. Would you rather the courts did nothing and this child died because of his nut job parents?
  11. In my opinion, being that retarded = neglect
  12. I don't believe i've commented anywhere in the past 3 pages on Obama's action or even expressed support for the stimulus package(I don't remember doing that on this forum even)But yeah, I did find that ironic.
  13. More accurate picture - http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/2009/05/is-...n-abortion.html
  14. I agree with that too. However, in my mind, there's just absolutely no question or room for debate in this scenario. I just cannot see how anyone in their right mind could honestly believe that letting the child be taken of chemotherapy because he had the grave mis fortune to be born to the parents he did is the right decision.
  15. I don't profess to know the entire biographies of those I linked to, so could you expand on how they are integrity lacking hacks?
  16. Oh sorry, I forgot that everyone who disagrees with you isn't qualified to talk on whatever subject you're talking about.
  17. because i was responding to Cowboy not Barack Obama?
  18. You said that every single independent economists is against Barack Obama's spending.I proved you wrong.
  19. How the hell can anyone even say that this decision isn't 100% correct?Seriously?

  21. Yeah definitely agree with this. I mean, they come from a poor country, are most likely poor and what's worse, they're probably black as well! I don't know about the rest of you, but that should be more than enough to have them imprisoned without a trial for 7 years. We've got to give an example to the other poor black people who are destroying our country and stealing our jobs amright?
  22. I never thought of this before, but it's a great point.
  23. You know they spend so much on developing because they don't want to health risk of an exploding hammer right?
  24. I find it pretty ironic he considers himself a Libertarian with his priorities being freedom of speech, yet if in charge he would --The present Article 1 of the Dutch constitution, guaranteeing equality under the law, will be replaced by a clause stating the cultural dominance of the Christian, Jewish and humanist traditions.- A ban of five years on the founding of mosques and Islamic schools; a permanent ban on preaching in any other language but Dutch. Foreign imams will be forbidden to preach. Radical mosques will be closed; radical Muslims will be expelled.He bitches about not being allowe
  25. Kind of off topic, but I thought it'd be interesting to hear your guesses on this question -What is US government spending as a % of GDP in the US? What about the Eurozone? I guess it's something I didn't really think precisely about before, but it came up in a paper today as a source from NBER and I found the answers pretty interesting.
