    of the 20M SS beneficiaries, i wonder how many have already put in to the pot. i also wonder just how this will curtail our main economic shortcoming: deficit spending.

    i think i'll buy $1200 worth of mcd's stock, even though dubya wants me to buy only the happy ending meals

    sorry if i sound like a ****ing liberal, this **** just doesn't add up.

    A Gabillion dollar deficit, and they are giving money back? I am going to stock up on ammo.

    So is it safe to say that from here on out every time economic growth drops below 3% the government is just going to start handing out checks?

    Since when did recession mean <3% growth and not <0%?



    Here is an idea. Instead of privatizing social security how about we just make SS like a 401K that you buy federal bonds with? It would keep the debt within the country and it would make people give a **** about national debt levels. Probably a bad idea but it popped into my head and I thought I'd type it out.

    I think current usage is something along the lines of recession being a drop in growth, and depression negative growth.

    I can't confirm that because I set my firewall to block attempts to connect to Wikipedia and then I burnt my copy of the password to reconfigure it.

    I like it. The only hard part is convincing Republicans to care about debt levels.

    i think you caught a typo, and it should be rape.

    throwing us some cash is like saying "now go clean yourself up"

    From wiki
    In macroeconomics, a recession is a decline in a country's gross domestic product (GDP), or negative real economic growth, for two or more successive quarters of a year.

    Consider inflation and the CPI index growth rates whenever you're looking at these figures.
