This forum started three years ago, right after Lord Obama's coronation.
We've had three years of the worst stretch of unemployment since the 30's.
Three years of TRILLION DOLLAR deficits.
Three years of riff-raff running around screwing on the sidewalks, crapping on cop cars.
Three years of the president jetting off to Spain, Martha's Vineyard, Hawaii and playing 100+ rounds of gold while the average family's worth is cut almost in half.
Three years of corrupt deals with "alternative energy" money laundering.
Three years of suing states for trying to enforce immigration laws the feds ignore, while feds are running guns to drug cartels.
You lefties have had your fun. It's time to put grown-ups back in charge.
And the sooner the better!!!!!!!!!!

So the government can create jobs.
Make up your f*cking mind.
Can you try to make a point without a lie.
Business expands when there is a demand so why do Republicans keep wanting to give them tax breaks to create jobs.
Government incentives, like green energy incentives, provides those customers.
Spain is going broke,,,they have more green jobs and green programs than any other country. Name me a successful green energy program??? Something that is cost effective for the normal middle class family. Because that is the bulk of consumers.
When they loose jobs where they get paid,,,from small businesses and larger ones,,,they have no money to consume. This is why this admin. let unemployment benefits go so long. They are artificially creating weak consummers. But they can only do that so long.
When businesses are taxed more, they do not hire, invest, expand, and they hide their money.
It is what it is. Like it or not and no moral manipulation of this situation will help anyone.
The morality of Robin Hood is a fantasy and does not work in the real world.
You should know if you are an adult that if you keep over spending,,,you can not dig yourself out of debt,,,same goes for this country. You can declare bankruptsy. All the money from the rich will not solve this problem.

Last fall, right-wing pundits at Fox News and elsewhere savaged Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, after video circulated of the former Obama administration official explaining that because business moguls take advantage of infrastructure and education funded by taxes, "[t]here is nobody in this country who got rich on his own." This morning, an unlikely group offered up comments strikingly similar to Warren's: the hosts of Fox & Friends Sunday.

During a segment on wealthy Americans who renounce their citizenship to avoid paying taxes, Clayton Morris offered up this advice to such persons: "Get out of here. But the point is, you've made all this money on the backs of the infrastructure, taxpayers that got you there, the roads that taxpayers pay so you can drive back and forth to work to get rich on a regular basis, and now you're going to leave so you're not going to pay taxes."

Alisyn Camerota added, "[A]re they just greedy? I mean, are they just -- after this country allowed you the entrepreneurial spirit, the freedom to make all this money, now you're going to leave it? I mean, that does send the message that you care more about your money than you do about your country."

The grownups who left this country on the brink of depression? Stupid fool.
"The blatant lies extend through every aspect of the Republican platform, such as it is. The simple reason is that the Republicans have no ideas left, at least no ideas that have not been tested and proven to be failures again, and again, and again.
The economy didn't just crash under a Republican president, it crashed under Republican policies. It crashed with low taxes. It crashed with deregulated markets. It crashed with huge restrictions on union activity. It crashed with massive cuts in environmental regulations. It crashed with lowered trade barriers. It crashed with big fat Pentagon spending.
They got what they wanted. They got CEOs with no limits on their wealth. They got banks with no limits on their "creativity." They got trade agreements that guaranteed manufacturing could be moved to the dirtiest, cheapest, most desperate source available. They got massive cuts in capital gains taxes and equally large boosts in the wealth they could pass along in estates. They got everything they said would make us all wealthy. They got record oil and gas drilling. They got record giveaways of public land. They got everything they said would create jobs. They got the middle class to shoulder more, more, more of the burden so that those beautiful job creators would be free to work their magic.
They can't say the economy crashed because taxes went up, because they didn't. They can't say that the economy crashed because there was a raft of new regulation, because there wasn't. They can't blame it on "union thugs" or Saul Alinsky or the guy who writes Happy Holidays cards at Hallmark. They can't blame it on a president who was elected when the world was already in free fall. Only, of course they do. They say it because they have no choice.
For the same reason that they have to maintain that global warming is the creation of a conspiracy of scientists, and that evolution is a conspiracy of other scientists, and that gay marriage is a threat to "traditional" marriage. They have to lie about the threat of illegal immigrants. Lie about the state of the national debt. Lie about the effects of the President's health care plan. They have to lie, because lies are all they have left.
They certainly can't admit the truth about the economy. They can't admit that they did it. Own it. That their policies directly caused the worst economic failure in American history. Strike that. Make it "the greatest failure in American history since the last time that these same policies were tried." But then, they've been lying about that bit of history for years.

Democrats are 100% responsible for the sub primed fueled housing balloon and the subsequent collapse of the financial sector by blackmailing bankers into issuing trillions in mortgages to minorities or face the charge of racism.

Too many fathers are bragging about the number of baby mamas they impregnated so their children can become a burden on society. And the liberals point to them as one reason why these baby mamas are justified to kill them in the womb instead.

It's just too mindboggling.
