    I don't agree. Chicago's definitely over-rated,...

    I don't agree. Chicago's definitely over-rated, but they're still better than us. Even on paper:

    Top 10 guys:
    Noah vs. Turiaf
    Kurt vs. Mosgov -- wash
    Boozer vs. Amar'e
    Gibson vs. Randolph...
  2. It depends on who exactly you call a center, but...

    It depends on who exactly you call a center, but here's my take on who is better than him: Howard, Lopez, Kaman, Bogut, Bynum, Horford. I'd also maybe rank guys like Oden, Camby, Haywood, Jefferson,...
  3. Obama's a politician. Of course he was going to...

    Obama's a politician. Of course he was going to say it would be better than it actually was. But the forecasts didn't lie. Check the back history of this forum and you'll see that most of the numbers...
  4. Sure it did. Compare the results before and...

    Sure it did. Compare the results before and after. As soon as the stimulus funds started getting dispersed we saw improvements in the job numbers. Were they still bad? Sure. Would they have been much...
  5. Isn't Haslem going to be starting at the 5 for...

    Isn't Haslem going to be starting at the 5 for them?

    But you're right that Gasol+Odom is hands down the best duo. And plugging in Bynum gives you the best frontcourt rotation in the league.
  6. Poll: My pick was Felton at the time and given that...

    My pick was Felton at the time and given that list today, it's still Felton. I've always been pretty high on him. He's definitely not a top 20 PG based on last year's numbers, but he has the...
  7. Dirk and Duncan go on that list as well, but...

    Dirk and Duncan go on that list as well, but you're right. It's definitely thinned out a bit with Amar'e and Boozer coming over this way.

    And yet we still wind up with this for that district: http://wvgazette.com/News/201009140998
  9. There's never been a time in the post-war period...

    There's never been a time in the post-war period when tax rate increases have led to tax revenue decreases in this country. Of course if we do push over the 63% marker in the Laffer curve, then sure...
  10. That's basically it. Nobody's going to be able to...

    That's basically it. Nobody's going to be able to legitimately cut spending down from the pre-stimulus levels. Sure the wars will end at some point and TARP will be repaid, but at the same time we're...
  11. That's definitely not true. You have it...

    That's definitely not true. You have it backwards. The spending is short-term. The gains are long-term.
  12. You can find evidence of abuse anywhere. But that...

    You can find evidence of abuse anywhere. But that doesn't mean that the whole system was abused. For example, I took about $19K of stim fund subsidies and turned that into two research assistantship...
  13. I think we're going to be a better rebounding...

    I think we're going to be a better rebounding team this year than last.

    At a minimum:
    Turiaf/Mozgov should give us about 7 boards at the 5.
    Amare/Randolph should give us about 15 boards at the 4...
  14. It would definitely cripple China's manufacturing...

    It would definitely cripple China's manufacturing sector. But then again it would lead to massive inflation of goods here in the States leading to a Fed policy of increased interest rates which in...
  15. That's exactly right. The Fed buys and sells...

    That's exactly right. The Fed buys and sells t-bills routinely to maneuver M2. All the Fed was doing was purchasing back its prior holdings. Otherwise we would have seen a massive change to their...
  16. Anyone supporting these extensions cannot...

    Anyone supporting these extensions cannot possibly call themselves fiscally conservative. The detrimental effect they would have on the debt is massive.

    How about we wait till the economy picks...

    Fine. She's not a lock to lose, but she definitely has a much smaller shot of winning than Castle did. Castle also wasn't a complete lock to win but he was definitely a heavy favorite for it, just as...
  18. The opinions of writers don't equate the policy....

    The opinions of writers don't equate the policy. The Fed buying up $1.25T in bonds is simply one of the things the Fed does. And it's one of the things the Fed has always done. The Fed doesn't...

    She's not a no-namer. This is her third Senate run. But when Karl Rove says DE 'pubs are nuts for voting for her, you begtter believe it's a lost cause.

    In strong Republican areas, the TP candidates are going to pick up a larger share of the vote than a traditional GOPer would have done because they really seem to do a better job of energizing the...

    Show me evidence of the Fed printing money to pay for US debt.
  22. I think you'd find the media coverage of...

    I think you'd find the media coverage of desegregation really interesting. It followed a very similar path.
  23. This whole thing reminds me of the fake crisis...

    This whole thing reminds me of the fake crisis with the stock market when Obama was elected. The market fell a few 100 points after he was elected and the right-wing talking heads started screaming...

    From the fiscal side, there is no alternative to spending. That's how our economy works. Did you read my post? When consumption declines (as it has), investment and government spending have to pick...

    :facepalm:

    Way to attack me instead of defending your argument. All you did was point to Bernanke saying the same thing I did -- in that we're not monetizing. We're looking at monetary policy.
