Well, Harper ISN'T an economist. But I am. Why is he an idiot? Because dogs lick their balls. It's nature.

No he's not. He's never worked a day in his life as economist, so he isn't one. A degree in economics doesn't make someone an economist any more than a degree in English Literature makes someone a novelist. And I am an economist.

I can get a law degree, get called to the bar and never work a day in my life and be called a lawyer.

I'm an economist. Are you? Who'd know better what makes one an economist? You or I? As Tommy Boy said "You can get a good look at a T-bone steak by jamming your head up a bull's ass, but wouldn't it be easier to take the butcher's word?" A law degree brings a professional designation. An economics degree does not. One becomes an economist by working as an economist. Harper is a politician. That is his occupation. That is his vocation. If he had a degree in psychology, would you say he was a psychologist? If he had a degree in Human Kinetics would you call him an athlete? Or a coroner? My two closest buddies from grad school, Rob and Steve: Rob went to teachers' college and teaches highschool history and economics. Is he an economist or a teacher? Steve sells investments. Is he an economist or a stock broker?

IF GM were to disappear as most of you seem to want, the economic repercussions throughout North America would be devastating.... Even Toyota has stated GM's demise would also hurt Toyota and other car manufacturers...


Not to mention I'd realy be f$#%ed because my truck would be worth it's weight in pesos and I'd have a hell of a time finding parts 8O

Maybe, but that makes none of what I said about Harper being an economist any less true. And who would claim to be an economist who wasn't? Oh wait, isn't that exactly what we were talking about?
