  1. I don't understand what people like this Ferrara guy thinks he will accomplish by lying. He doesn't sound stupid and so I have to assume he knows he is lying. And if he isn't stupid and knows he is lying, he must think average Americans are stupid that they'd believe his lies. Or am I giving him too much credit? Do some of these people repeat these lies so many times that they start believing their own lies?

  2. @noldorian86 Who said this guy was a Republican? The facts are we are in deep shit with the debt, and Republicans and Democrats are to blame. I complained like hell when Bush was spending like a drunken sailor and creating wars, with 8 years of Republicans. The debate Thom and Peter are having is between low taxes or high taxes, but the real problem has been government overspending and we should be debating what to cut. I agree with Ron Paul that it should be military and subsidies.

  3. I wish just one member of Congress would say this statement out loud and on camera: "Republicans want the country to fail."

  4. @noldorian86 The stimulus was supposed to create jobs, but we actually lost jobs, we have more people receiving food stamps (44 million) and we have 17% real unemployment or underemployment. The Bush government tried to encourage housing, but that backfired, and the government has tried to create jobs with various bills but that backfired. "Cash for Clunkers" only made cars more expensive for the poor. Government can only destroy wealth. Ron Paul explains:


  5. James Madisons wet dream anyone?

    Let the economy deafult, screw the small people and reward the bankers and power mongers whom screwed you?

  6. More wealth may have been generated from 1982-2007 than in all of American history, but income disparity increased VASTLY. The top 2% tripled their share of the pie while wages for average Americans remained stagnant or actually decreased when adjusted for inflation. To sum it up, it never trickled down.

  7. "i had to sell my house to pay income taxes" really? even if that is true it is more of an issue of him miss managing his money in that light why are we listening to him?

  8. the debt is not a problem as long as business is being done in the US and world. 6 billion people on earth use the petro US dollar in some manner. so therefore the US govt can borrow as much money as it wants from the evil federal reserve and OTC treasury market. it would be just better to get rid of the FED middle men, and have the US govt nationalize and takeover the central bankers and create credit and use taxation as a form of inflation control.

  9. Peter Ferrara is right about the greatest increase in wealth, if you only count the top 1%. The remaining population experienced ever decreasing wealth maintained only by decreasing savings & increasing credit. Thom, you're spot on. This decreased the the consumer base in America causing companies to seek consumers overseas, off-shoring production to lower the cost of products & creating the downward trend which is today's failing economy. Thom, keep fighting for the lower & middle classes.

  10. i think it's hilarious, actually scary and sad, that people in this country feel the solution to fixing our problem is raising our credit limit. we're broke, our credit cards are maxed, and people like thom want to raise the credit limit. that is so counter to common sense and destructive to our country and its currency. every time you raise the debt ceiling you lower the value of our US dollar.

    and how dare if you ever speak of saying, CUT UP OUR CREDIT CARDS STOP SPENDING.

  11. Hey Peter. The wealth that was created with Reaganomis ALL went to the super rich & our economy collapsed. The spin that is Peter Ferrara is just hilarious.
    This guy is a psycho & Thom, you better learn how to destroy this guys arguments. He's nuts, but he's smart & he knows how to debate.
    I just destroyed his main point & I'm an idiot. C'mon Thom.
    Reaganomics created the greatest economic growth ever. ROFL!
    Yeah Peter… FOR THE WEALTHY!!!

  12. People who think the stimulus caused a loss in jobs are either idiots or trolls
    Apparently they don't have any memory that when Obama came into office we were LOSING OVER HALF A MILLION JOBS A MONTH.
    Thanks to the stimulus, that STOPPED.
    But the stimulus only worked half as good as it should. You know why?
    Cause Obama is a wuss & a partial Bush clone too.
    The republicans gutted the stimulus & cut it in half before letting it pass.
    Thus, it only half worked & stopped the job loss. IDIOTS
