There must be no history books in your fantasy world.
OI have news. The Great Recession of 2008 belongs to Bush FOREVER.
And perhaps his name would not come up so often of idiots like you did not blame Obama for the effects of that Bush recession.
Studies have shown that racism of the white against the black has grown in this country & I suspect it has a lot to do with the far right & the Tea Party.
Now you can try to blame blacks for that all you want, it just proves my point.
You blame Bush for all tyour problems.

Relax, Real Dumb Dave, and enjoy your walfare to work (not to work) checks for 4 more years. lol

If I were you tho, I would practice finding your lame ass with both hands, so that when his time in office is over with,and the Republicans put your lazy ass to work, you can actually do something, and make your mark on the world. Even if it is only puttiing tp on a roller. lol

<quoted text> It is arithmetic Melvin and they is right.$4 billion a day is $120 billion in 30 days. Now common sense will tell you that if you took all the wealthy's everything, those worth a million or more, it wouldn't add up to much more than that. I haven't looked it up but I think most of the money is under a million dollars by shear numbers alone.

The top 400 richest are worth $1.7 TRILLION!!


go buy a clue.........LOSER!

<quoted text>No. They're Bush/Cheney suicides--unless Dick shoots someone else in the face. " The suicide rate among the nation’s active-duty military personnel has spiked this year, eclipsing the number of troops dying in battle and on pace to set a record annual high since the start of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan more than a decade ago, the Pentagon said Friday.
Suicides have increased even as the United States military has withdrawn from Iraq and stepped up efforts to provide mental health, drug and alcohol, and financial counseling services.
The military said Friday that there had been 154 suicides among active-duty troops through Thursday, a rate of nearly one each day this year. The figures were first reported this week by The Associated Press.
That number represents an 18 percent increase over the 130 active-duty military suicides for the same period in 2011. There were 123 suicides from January to early June in 2010, and 133 during that period in 2009, the Pentagon said."
So how does that explain another 3300 more a year? Is that liberal math?

I hope the first to suffer financially are all those uber wealthy undeserving CREEPS and DEVILS such as Barbara Walters and her crew along with all the filthy celebrity degenerates she caters to and gives a platform to on her show. OMG the dirty cheap Jew bragged she opened her pocketbook and donated $250,000.00 for the storm victims.

The media should be the next to pay through their roofs. Then I hope their networks through them all off the air and hire some qualified newscasters with integrity. That Samantha Gunthrie and the twin (?) lookalike on channel 4 is an irritating bimbo that should go immediately. We do not want to hear or see these idiots any longer nor hear them sing or dance. They are REPULSIVE and not even Americans. Go back to Australia you dingbat.

Then why did the Republicans in the House & in state legislatures all across this country waste time writing, debating & voting on bills dealing with abortion, gay marriage?

I've never see such a meltdown.

With neither side backing down, senior producers had to find a way to split the difference. One idea was for two members of the decision team, Mishkin and Fox’s digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt, to go on camera with Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier to squelch the doubts over the call. But then it was decided that Kelly would walk through the office and interview the decision team in the conference room.“This is Fox News,” an insider said,“so anytime there’s a chance to show off Megyn Kelly’s legs they’ll go for it.” The decision desk were given a three-minute warning that Kelly would be showing up.

I guess they figured they better show some eye candy or something to pacify their viewers.

My congratulations to Mitt after a well fought campaign, a grand effort but you'll have to wait 4 more years until you can bring in the death penalty for gay marriage.
Today we should all be thanking the good lord for democracy and the forward thinking states of Colorado and Washington for the vote that really mattered on election night, the legalization of marijuana!
A joint may well be whats needed for the government to ease the pain of blowing $4 billion on the campaign trail, which I can't help think may have been better used to stimulate the economy or better still Romney's neglected wife Ann!

Good job there, dem. Your vote will come back to haunt you.
Miss Carol did you see where Puerto Rico voted to be our 51st state and Obama says we can trust him to do the will of the American people on this issue ?? What kind of a drain on the tax payer will that turn out to be ?

Women who voted for Obama because of their private parts over people having jobs are pretty stupid and selfish.
A lot of young people didn't even vote. And those who voted for Obama apparently haven't started looking for a job yet. They're in for a big surprise.
Thanks for proving you're as slow on the uptake as they are, nuc. Good job.
Perhaps a biblical lesson ABORTION is necessary Carol...

LOL! At least you are honest and tell the truth about what your most important issues are.
Carol and the others kept trying to say that it was the economy.
It's not.
It's always about abortion and gay marriage.
Never seizes to amaze me.
Oh, and racism, almost forgot

I agree . Economist Thomas Sowell says Obama is a fascist and makes a good case for his claim.
So you reside in an alternate alternate reality where Obama is a Fascist.

I blame Bush for what he deserves to be blamed with. Too bad you right whiners can't. You have to search others to blame.

I work & earn my own keep. I pay my taxers & don't constantly whine about it.

The purple thing on the weather channel was right over Great Gorge which is just a few miles over from you right? As the snow flies?

I was gonna send you a FEMA trailer thinking you could hook it up with an orange lead cord and a garden hose. The sht can just run out on the ground up there in Rural Route world right? That's how they did it in Mississippi.
