I know we know better what to do with our money than the government.

We sent around 6 million people to Las Vegas to discuss business last year.

Is the problem here that government doesn’t send enough?

On this one I think Jon missed it.

Since this is all over the place again today, I will say it again if it's wrong for anyone, it's wrong for everyone.

Now this is what I think, maybe it is stupid to send people from one place to another to watch clowns, hoping it will make them feel better about the dead end jobs they have.

But if it’s stupid, it’s stupid

I know that this opinion will find few friends among the hotel and restaurant industries, and those industries employ a lot of people, but I never said the truth makes everybody happy. It’s just the truth.

I know that much of our economy is based on convincing people to do stupid things.

Maybe we should be investing in innovation and making the things we invent.

I believe we should use all our tools, including government, to promote smart use of our money.

"WE" are our Government!!!

It's only when people turn their backs on government that Cons take over and make government fail!

Jon is a Paul supporting kook.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6622) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Which Paul was that anyway?

[-] 0 points by JuanFenito (847) 2 years ago

Ron Paul. What about this makes you so sure I am a troll?

Not all of us support Paul like you do, apparently. Jon is one of them. OWS has been co-opted by paul supporters like you.

what have I said that makes me a Paul supporter? what has Jon said that makes him a Paul supporter?

Trolls say things with no reason or example when asked, like you so you must be a troll

[-] 0 points by JuanFenito (847) 2 years ago

The reason I thought you were a Paul supporter is because you claimed I was a troll because I had said something anti Paul/Stewart.

[-] 0 points by JuanFenito (847) 2 years ago

I said Jon Stewart is a Paul supporting kook, and you claim I am a troll. Of course I thought you were, you said something that wasn't true, and made no sense in the context... just like trolls do, as you just said. Look, I don't really know if you are a troll or not, and to be honest I don't really care. It doesn't make sense to me why you would claim I am a troll for calling out Stewart's support of Paul, but whatever.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6622) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

OK then sorry thought you knew what you were talking about, yes Jon poked fun at the GOP for the way they treated Paul because it exposed their hopocorsry, but he is not a "Paul" supporter, so when you lied, naturally I indentified you as a troll, of course this is not the first time I have read your stuff so I already knew that.

[-] 0 points by JuanFenito (847) 2 years ago

Actually, he made fun of the media for ignoring Paul.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6622) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

that too I'm sure, making fun of things is his stock and trade
