And that explains the battles in the suburbs of Damascus....
You are an idiot....
The United States didn't supply the Soviet Union with significant quantities of weaponry until the war was well underway, idiot. Here's a rough timeline for you:
1940 Lend-Lease Act
1939 Hitler invades Russia.
... oops. 1939 happened before 1940.
1935 Stalin begins series of purges.
... oops. 1935 happened before 1939.
... dufus.
And, if you had any knowledge about what you speak, you will know that the total arms from the United States to Russia during the war amounted to less than 10 percent of the weaponry and supplies Russia used to defeat Hitler.
It's amusing watching you dance and dodge, but it becomes repetitive and boring. Let's get back to the subject. There are still two questions that nobody on Earth has been able to answer:
Exactly where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down America security when real-time video of the battle was being watched in the Pentagon?
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Got an answer?
You get an 'F' in history once again, Dweeb!!

Hitler invaded Russia when?? You got it wrong!!! DUH.

I've gaffed a big one!!

Not much fight in him, he sure is an ugly critter!!

You think wars are won by munitions alone??

No need for trucks?? Railroad cars in a nation as vast as Russia??

Once again, I've reeled in a brain dead Dweebwhale!!

Think I'll kick him around a bit before throwing him overboard.

""The USSR was highly dependent on rail transportation, but the war practically shut down rail equipment production: only about 92 locomotives were produced. 2,000 locomotives and 11,000 railcars were supplied under Lend-Lease. Likewise, the Soviet air force received 18,700 aircraft, which amounted to about 14% of Soviet aircraft production (19% for military aircraft).

Although most Red Army tank units were equipped with Soviet-built tanks, their logistical support was provided by hundreds of thousands of U.S.-made trucks. Indeed by 1945 nearly two-thirds of the truck strength of the Red Army was U.S.-built. Trucks such as the Dodge 3/4 ton and Studebaker 2½ ton, were easily the best trucks available in their class on either side on the Eastern Front. American shipments of telephone cable, aluminium, canned rations, and clothing were also critical.""

----------

Imagine, by 1945, two thirds of Russia's truck fleet was American Trucks from Dodge, GM, Ford, Studebaker.

----------

""Delivery was via the Arctic Convoys, the Persian Corridor, and the Pacific Route.

The Arctic route was the shortest and most direct route for lend-lease aid to the USSR, though it was also the most dangerous. Some 3,964,000 tons of goods were shipped by the Arctic route; 7% was lost, while 93% arrived safely.[20] This constituted some 23% of the total aid to the USSR during the war.

The Persian Corridor was the longest route, and was not fully operational until mid 1942. Thereafter it saw the passage of 4,160,000 tons of goods, 27% of the total.[20]

The Pacific Route opened in August 1941, but was affected by the start of hostilities between Japan and the US; after December 1941, only Soviet ships could be used, and, as Japan and the USSR observed a strict neutrality towards each other, only non-military goods could be transported.[21] Nevertheless, some 8,244,000 tons of goods went by this route, 50% of the total.[20]

In total, the US deliveries through Lend-Lease amounted to $11 billion in materials: over 400,000 jeeps and trucks; 12,000 armored vehicles (including 7,000 tanks); 11,400 aircraft and 1,75 million tons of food.

Well, they were significantly more advanced in their management of government than we are. They actually had a budget, something we haven't had since Obama took office. And, I'm betting that the presidents then submitted budgets to Congress every year, unlike Obama when he gets around to it every other year or so. And, I'm betting that those presidents got a lot more than a sum total os ZERO votes for their budgets, meaning every person in Congress didn't think they were an idiot, like today when every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is a loon.

If there's not a budget, there's not a plan.
If there's not a plan, then there's no possible argument for borrowing any money.

But, we still have a government. So....

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

President Obama is brilliant.
RealDave should be asking himself if Obama and Senate Democrats will survive another term. You probably should too.

The American people are going to wake up sooner or later. It's going to be like waking a sleeping giant...a very angry giant.

Obama's promises have already gone right out the window - the middle class HAVE been taxed after all! Imagine the surprise on a lot of people's faces when they see their first paychecks.

Conservatives have all the time in the world now to expose this president for who he truly is. Obama's cockiness will more than likely backfire. Wait and see.

A lot of democrats own guns, a lot of democrats are anti-abortion and a lot of democrats are against gay marriage.

They didn't like Romney. But it's only a matter of time before they realize their mistake and chose the wrong candidate who gave them a line of bull.

Because he did and, because he announced raising the debt ceiling was a sign of bad leadership as a Senator, the buck stops with him.
Let's have no more excuses for this second-term president whose policies are now his and his alone, shall we?
We don't need excuses for Obama.

He won the election.

You've spent two months making excuses for Republiclown incompetence.

Obama won.

Dems picked up 2 Senate Seats.

Dems picked up 8 House seats.

It's not Obama out to destroy your sick party. You're doing it all on your own with your 'I hate my fellow Americans' program that all 8% of you Teabaggers are on board with.

And a foot note to Reagan's rejected budgets. He finally got a budget passed later on. It raised America's debt 186% over what it had been.
If Obama had raised the debt like Reagan it would now be $46.5 Trillion.

Oh no, honey, none of that's true. "We" do not have a government since, by your (pl.) own words, your only goal is to make sure that the current President achieves nothing. "Your" sole contribution to "our Government" is to make sure it doesn't work. You sort of outlined this dichotomy in the words you chose for your post above. You just wrote: "But, "we" still have a government." And then in the very next sentence you wrote, "Where will the money come from to pay for "Obama's government?" So, you see, you answered your own question. If "We" do not have a functional government because "you" consider the current government illegitimate and unrepresentative, then "you" have no say in whatever "we" decide to do to pay for "our" government. Do "we?"

Bottom line, dufus....

Less than 10 percent of what Russia used to defeat Germany came from the United States. Those munitions didn't start arriving until after Germany invaded Russia.
Therefore, your ignorant statement that the US armed Stalin so he could begin his purges in 1935 was (typically from you) ludicrous.

If you look closer at history, you'll see that the annual production of arms of Russia was almost that of Germany the year before Germany invaded Russia. It was projected that the very next year arms production in Russia would exceed arms production in Germany. This fact was a significant factor in Hitler deciding to invade Russia while he had two other active fronts, Africa and Western Europe.
... get an education, dufus.

Wrong.
Obama's budgets were put on the floor for a vote without amendments. You'd know that if you kept up with events and knew the first excuses by the Democrats about why Obama got a sum total of ZERO votes for the 2 budgets he got around to submitting of the 4 budgets we hired him to submit.
