Friday Highlights

Good morning

  1. Hook it up to a nuclear power plant and bingo, the putative excess CO2 problem bites the dust.
  2. More girls gallivanting about (at high speed).
  3. Zanzibar.
  4. Is killing? More like is the essence of.
  5. Chaos and beauty.
  6. Liberal dis-enchantment.
  7. Why the tax/math claims against Romney don’t have bite. The other reason is that when Mr Obama cites “my plan” … the plan of which he speaks are the budgets he sent to Congress that didn’t even get Democrats to vote for it in the House. Realism not.
  8. A song for your day.

Gotta run. Have a good one.

  1. 7.Why the tax/math claims against Romney don’t have bite. …

    2+2+4 != 2 even if you multiply the numbers all by a trillion.

    That is $2T in new spending, $2T in tax cuts and $4T in deficit reduction cannot equal $2T in unspecified ‘loophole closing’. That fact that Congress never votes for the President’s budget (even when they are the same party there’s competition for shaping the priorities of a budget) does nothing to allieviate the fact that this dimension of time and space cannot support Romney’s arithmatic…….unless he is telling the truth about the ‘47%’ and the ‘loophole’ is everyone making less than $250,000

  2. 1.Hook it up to a nuclear power plant and bingo, the putative excess CO2 problem bites the dust.

    It is interesting to note that the best ‘battery’ we have so far is fuel. You can store it, move it around and ‘recharge’ your vehicle with it in less than two minutes. If there was an efficient way to make fuel out of electricity you can tap the grid during off peak hours to do so. This also would apply to the main criticism of wind and solar….that they may end up providing power when it’s not needed….just toss excess power into the fuel factories.

  3. Boonton,
    So … if you look at the post yes 2+2+4 != 2 … but when the guy claiming that this is a problem is touting instead that 1 + 2 + 3 = 2 … the accusation loses its bite.

  4. You mean the post you linked too which claimed that Obama said Medicare and Social Security can both be balanced by increasing taxes on the top 2% or so? Obama made no such claim and in fact stated several times in the debate that was NOT his position. (Although even if it was, how does that relate to budget proposals getting votes in the congress?) So what again is the position you’re trying to articulate.

  5. Boonton,

    (Although even if it was, how does that relate to budget proposals getting votes in the congress?)

    That would be his budget that he is putting up against Romney’s suggestions, right? If not, why not?

  6. That would be his budget that he is putting up against Romney’s suggestions,

    And you still haven’t address the question of what this has to do with Romney’s math not adding up. You seem to be assuming that failure to pass a budget as a single bill that covers the next 1-5 years means there’s no budget at all.

  7. And it should be noted that as far as taxes goes, Obama has a pretty good shot at forcing Congress to accept his plan. Step 1. Let the Bush tax cuts fully expire. Step 2. A week later introduce the Democratic Middle Class Tax Cut Act of 2013 and dare Republicans to vote no on it.
