The Question of the Day is:

    The more the better. This type of spending is good for the economy.

    I agree. Most of these clowns are millionaires, and the best thing they could do with their money is spend it….
    Now of course, it may be argued that millionaires are this country’s “job creators”, but that would imply that they had a clue, or an idea, or a willingness to roll up their sleeves and actually create a job or two. Most would rather invest…meaning shuffle paper until it becomes money, and so, I’ll go with the first idea…spend baby spend

    From the keyboard of Paul: “The more the better. This type of spending is good for the economy.”

    Whose the 99% or the 1%?

    Ken, spending is spending. There are a lot of folks in between the two percentages that you point to. I don’t buy into this 99 or 1 foolishness.
