Uh…So What Have We Learned in 2,067 years Mr. Powell?
Quote of the Century….
“The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt.”
– Cicero , 55 BC
So, evidently we’ve learned nothing in the past 2,067 years
Rick Santelli went to school. He studied history. He agrees with Cicero.
If you missed the Powell/ O’Reilly debate, (see it below if you can keep from wanting to push Colin Powell off his elite chair and stuff some American pie in his mouth) you will notice that Colin thinks the economy is coming back because— “THE STOCK MARKET IS FINE!”
Spoken like a true rich and greedy liberal politician. As long as his portfolio remains sound, he could give a flying monkey that the rest of the world is exploding in debt. Economics is not the only thing he has no clue on…he’s a big-time racist and doesn’t even know it. And as we have seen in 2008: There is MONEY to be made when you can bet big on that demise…for those who know how to do it….and they did do it.
This out today:
The economy shrank from October through December for the first time since the recession ended, hurt by the biggest cut in defense spending in 40 years, fewer exports and sluggish growth in company stockpiles. The Commerce Department said Wednesday that the economy contracted at an annual rate of 0.1 percent in the fourth quarter. That’s a sharp slowdown from the 3.1 percent growth rate in the July-September quarter.
Obama has pledged to spent even more than he planned. Nobody Wins when you have a nation of idiots running the government. (Or…are they? Their stocks are doing great!)
(Note: Colin hits all the global points: Get kids into the state when their babies: abortion: Minorities get special treatment: to single out illegal immigrants means you’re racist.)
The first part of this deabate is about the economy, it stops around the 4.45 mark if you don’t want to listen to it all.
And by the way, Colin Powell has also admitted that he voted for Obama the first time…BECAUSE he was black I heard him say it.
And it goes on……
