I found this interesting. Apparently, during recessions/depressions, life expectancy increases at a higher rate than during economically prosperous times. I disagree with Orszag’s prescriptions for the “problem”. I see this as a positive for society. People living longer means that folks will have a larger window of adding to the economy via work, investment, consuming, charity, teaching trades and/or skills, etc.

So do we want the Occupiers in public office? I would prefer the OWS crowd in office than the current crowd representing the Democratic Party. They state what they believe with passion. They are taking the mask off of who they are. I am cool with talking to them, not the current crop of politicians. I can respect that.

I get his anger toward Mitt, but he has to stay positive and to the Right of Mitt not to the Left. Newt seems to have doubled down on this crap. Because of this news, I can’t support Newt. At this point, I will reserve my support for any candidate. Hope someone can win over my support.
