I thought you guys preferred tax cuts.

#3 It's not a tax cut: In its centerpiece tax cut, single workers would gain $500 and couples $1,000, even if they don't earn enough to owe federal income taxes.

#5 LH: we kind of prefer actual tax cuts, as opposed to one-time welfare grants wearing novelty glasses and a fake mustache. Not that Bush didn't repeatedly pull the same crap stunt...

#8 Yah, but all have rural roots. Moving back to the farm isn't really a tragedy. And 26 million isn't a large number in China.

#9 True public works like real infrastructure development in the interior versas dig a hole - fill in a hole would let off a lot of social steam and would improve China as a whole. As for 26 million not being that many people in China, who many did Mao start out with in the 1930s?

#10 I read many years ago that the main purpose of wars was to eliminate the excess male population.
