Sometimes in life, things get so ridiculous, you simply have to laugh.

Shot of Speaker Paul Ryan laughing hysterically with members of the Republican House caucus following a ceremony aimed at repealing the Affordable Care Act

They believed him when he said he wouldn’t cut Medicare and Social Security. They believed him when he said global warming was a Chinese hoax, and that he never groped those women. They believed he really had a heel spur that kept him out of the army and that he won the popular vote.

They believed he couldn’t show his taxes because he was “under audit.” They believed him when he claimed, “Between 3 million and 5 million illegal votes caused me to lose the popular vote.” They believed him when he said, “There’s very little benefit (in the tax plan) for people of wealth.”

They believed him when he said, “Black homeownership just hit the highest level it has ever been in the history of our country.” They believed him when he said, “The tax bill “is going to cost me a fortune, this thing — believe me. Believe me, this is not good for me.” They believed Trump University was an honest school.

And now they believe him when he says he is a “very stable genius.” Who the heck are the dupes who believe whatever Trump tells them?

Want to see just a small list of the things these folks are laughing at? Go to:

  1. Trump’s Lies Vs. Obama’s,
  2. and President Trump’s lies
  3. and False statements involving Donald Trump.

To paraphrase John Donne: “Send not to know at whom the GOP laughs,
It laughs at thee.”

FACTS

•All we have are partial solutions; the best we can do is try.

•Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.

•Any monetarily NON-sovereign government — be it city, county, state or nation — that runs an ongoing trade deficit, eventually will run out of money no matter how much it taxes its citizens.

•The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes..

•No nation can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth.

•Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia.

•A growing economy requires a growing supply of money (GDP = Federal Spending + Non-federal Spending + Net Exports)

•Deficit spending grows the supply of money

•The limit to federal deficit spending is an inflation that cannot be cured with interest rate control. The limit to non-federal deficit spending is the ability to borrow.

•Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.

•Progressives think the purpose of government is to protect the poor and powerless from the rich and powerful. Conservatives think the purpose of government is to protect the rich and powerful from the poor and powerless.

•The single most important problem in economics is the Gap between the rich and the rest.

•Austerity is the government’s method for widening the Gap between the rich and the rest.

•Everything in economics devolves to motive, and the motive is the Gap between the rich and the rest..
