Religious Psychosis, Schizophrenia and Paranoia
Models of religious fanaticism, such as Jesus and Mohammad, display
the classic symptoms of a religious type schizophrenia (hearing voices,
delusions of grandeur, hallucinations, sociopathy, paranoia, believing
that they have supernatural powers, etc.), thus religious fanatics
model themselves on classic religious schizophrenics.
With the religious paranoid, they are under the delusion that their
every thought and action is being watched 24 hours a day by someone
who can send them to Hell for the slightest infraction. In the world of
psychiatry this disorder is considered to be symptomatic of paranoia,
but in the world of religious fanaticism, this type of paranoia is encouraged
and even considered "normal".
Unfortunately, once you are profoundly paranoid, its grip will spread
to every corner of your life. This is clearly evidenced on the Internet
where many forums are devoted entirely to paranoid delusions and
their triggering by religious fanatics who are convinced not only that
the world is soon to end but that such an apocalypse is being brought
about intentionally by evil entities such as the Illuminati, the New World
Order, or even Alien Reptiles -- shape shifters in human form from
other planets who have infiltrated the highest levels of government.
"The Christian resolution to find the world ugly and bad
has made the world ugly and bad." ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

What would a democrat supermajority and an Obama second term do?
The talk on the (looney side of the) street is that it would destroy America ...
No I'm asking you personally.
What do you honestly think the Obama Economic Platform is. Or hypothetically, if he could do whatever he wanted(let's assume he has a democratic supermajority that completely backs his plan, and moves it forward expeditiously)
What do you think the plan is?
I'm happy to share what I think it is, if anybody wants to read it.
Feel free to assume Obama isn't responsible for one, that it's congress' responsibility if you want to. Assume Democrats have a congressional Economic Plan, and Obama agrees to sign it.
Yes they blocked stuff after the tea party sweep in 2010.
What was Obama's Economic Plan in 2009?
Can you lay it out in your own words?
When the senate convened for the first time in 2009, the democrat majority had the opportunity to eliminate the filibuster threat by a simple majority vote on senate rules.
They should have been ready to ram through an economic recovery program right out of the gate, and they could have if they wanted to.
Let's assume they did, and they just goofed on the filibuster thing. Oops. Oh well, let's move forward and not linger on that.
Let's just assume we give them and Obama another chance and a filibuster-proof supermajority.
In your own words, what would they do with it?
I'm not talking about tax cuts for oil companies or equal pay for women. Those are fine, worth taking up, but they aren't an Economic Plan.
What's Obamanomics in your own words. What's the plan for 2013?
And what was the plan for 2009?
Can you articulate one? I've never heard one put forth.
I can help you post more "republican's blocked" links if you want, but that's not the question I'm asking.
I want to know what the democrat plan is. We can go back and read everything you linked and see if it's any good or not, but nothing you posted gave me any idea of an overall economic plan.
Looks like they're just playing piddlywinks with 1990's stuff. What's the 2009, and 2013 comprehensive plan?
Well, that is a good question, and indeed it is a shame I do not know it actually. I can do some wild guesses about the talk they talk, but I don't know of any specifics.
But I have seen too much lying on the other side these past 4 years, and I have no idea about their recovery plan also, that I cannot get behind them.
With Mitt it is the same as with Obama, I can assume things. My assumptions are these:
Try to put money in education and science, push for the future of energy, which is not oil, try to work with other nations to resolve thing and start business, do some big infrastructure things, this worked in the past to some degree. So there is no quick fix, accept reality, be a technocrat, and do the best in the space you can manoeuvre.
Probably the same as above, because he is lying to be conservative, he is a moderate, allmost a liberal. But ok, he has his backers who are not. Oil and the military industry will get money again. More programs for rights of workers and minorities will vanish, foreign nations will be able to own allmost everything, people will get rich from it, it will look like a recovery but it will be the next bubble. After that, the world will be one, cos America has accepted equality amongst nations. ;)
I don't know, in the end it also doesn't really matter, like people say. I still think I take the path more preferably with the left than with the right. I am definitely not like a conservative who thinks the whole deal for a new world will stop if Obama is gone.
I actually also do not fear it. I think it will be the same anyways, and the tea party is for nationalism and especially some corporate preferential status in the world nationalism.
We will need to lead by example, and we are being forced to move into that position. Because it gives us a world empire and we like that and think it is safest.

I love that Obama was not side tracked by the republican economic crash he inherited and still brought universal healthcare and tried to help struggling people, while republicans only where shitting on him, on the country, on the recovery, on peoples bargaining rights, on middle class wealth and on respect itself.
Praise democrats and liberals.
It doesn't matter who caused the crash!! We are responsible for ourselves!! Family and friends will help you out if you are down.

This dumb "progressive" c#nt in my stats class says..
"We need to cut taxes and increase spending"
I couldn't believe my ears... I just laughed and referenced the national debt.. but there is no appealing to logic because keynesians are usually illogical ignoramuses.
The right and left has proponents and opponents of this. It is a hard choice. Do you spend to start and fix the economy, or do you wait till it will turn on out of itself, and how long will that take.
I know the IMF wants Greece and such to do big austerity. Most likely this will mean a decade of suffering.
So don't be too quick to pass judgement and laughs.
If they, those evil bastards, did not do the bailouts, you would feel the hurt a lot more.That it is on the debt now means they acted like it did not really happen. But if the economy halts and then collapses, maybe you would have like to spend a little more.
If you want it to fail anyways, then you are in a free-er position than a president to judge about those things.
