    Here's what's wrong with you: You TOTALLY missed the SECOND sentence (edit: paragraph, actually) in the OP. Here it is:

    But that's NOT the kind of 'vulgarity' I'm talking about here.

    Here, let me make SURE you got that:

    But that's NOT the kind of 'vulgarity' I'm talking about here.

    Q: Does it need to be made even LARGER?

    leroy, may I suggest that in the future if you don't want someone commenting on what you put in a post, don't put it in a post.

    Is THAT simple enough for you?

    You gave up the right to protest by typing it to begin with and made it fair game by doing so.

    Move on....

    You, sir, are threadjacking. EITHER comment on the SUBSTANCE of the OP, or shut up.

    Leroy, you did not even need to make that text so big, because your OP was clear. Trump is vulgar in many different ways, but you were crystal clear when you specified that this was in regard to how Trump is using Keynesian economics. I have not been around the site for awhile, but excellent OP. Trump has a big business background, so people on both sides of the aisle should be aware of how Keynesian economics could manifest in his policies. I share your opinion that something vulgar is going on here, but even our political opponents should still keep one eye open here, especially if our opponents claim to not trust government.
    Thanks from labrea, MaryAnne, BigLeRoy and 1 others

    "Fiscal conservatism" and "austerity"...are a hoax.
    As Bush called Reagans plan,"Voodoo Economics. " he was right on that, shame his Son was such a fool.

    I'm thinking back to a memorable Paul Krugman column from early 2001, after the SCOTUS had installed George W. Bush as President.

    And Bush and Cheney were calling for a ginormous tax cut to ward off what they saw as a looming recession.

    And even though Krugman is a Keynesian himself, he dubbed that idea 'vulgar Keynesianism': the notion that we should try to ANTICIPATE recessions and implement tax cuts to try to prevent that recession before it even HAPPENED.

    Donald Trump is a vulgar Keynesian in THAT sense. He is calling for a truly MASSIVE fiscal stimulus, and at a time when the U.S. economy is NOT in a recession. He is calling for:

    (1) A Trillion dollar plus infrastructure program;

    (2) A possibly trillion dollar plus military spending spree;

    (3) And, of course, ENORMOUS tax cuts, and mostly for our billionaires.

    Vulgar Keynesianism.

    And conservatives are SUPPOSED to loathe, revile, and despise Lord Keynes and his radical ideas......

    CHEW on THAT, conservatives. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

    You've gone over to the Dark Side.

    HILARIOUS!
    Trump's in a bit of a quandary since he promised high GDP growth while also promising to deport the 11 (or 30+) million undocumented which will depress GDP growth, so his plan to borrow trillions for a huge infrastructure bill, our military and massive tax cuts make a certain insane sense.

    Still lying about Bush and claiming he was installed I see.

    he won the electoral college sonny boy proven fact deal with it.

    If you are so stupid as to ignore such facts and continue to repeat idiotic myth than the rest of your claims are worthless. meaningless and empty of any crediblity
