Why can't spending be cut?
Because Obama and the dems refuse to. The 47% and the LIV's must be placated and fed a constant stream of liberal swill.

I think fair minded people today would say FDR's image has been severely tarnished, of course that would never be taught in our public schools and rarely in universities. It's easily argued that his policies extended the great depression and that he goaded Japan into attacking us. Also a rumor he had advance knowledge of Pearl Harbor and did nothing. He certainly set the welfare state into motion.
Every argument that he extended the Depression has been debunked by economists.

Fact is, Republiclown demands that he cut back on spending caused the economy to slip back into recession in 1937.

It had nothing to do with Roosevelt but that he caved in to the Senate Republiclowns.

I'm sure you don't want to get into the right wing attempt to field an Army to overthrow Roosevelt.

We have over 100 years of recorded data plus other means of determining climate conditions for centuries.
100 years is nothing in the life of the universe, less than one second in a year.

Not to mention that "recorded data" beyond the last few decades is poorly documented with respect to methodology of collection.

Tell that your Republican Party.
The Science says man made global warming is real & a threat.
What proof do you want? There is no absolute proof, there can't be.
When we follow your plan & do nothing and we experience changes, you f*king morons will blame sun spots or giraffe farts.
I have an idea, you can remain stupid & ignorant. When our grandchildren feel the effects & suffer in the future, they will look back & think what an ass you & the Republican Party were. You had a change to act & instead you played politics.
The very same scientists that you worship thought that we were entering a "New Ice Age" as recently as 1980.

Most of these libs get their knowledge of Fox second hand, they spout ignorance repeatedly. I have to mute it when the race traitor Colmbs comes on. He's a typical self loathing jew.
I spend my mornings over coffee surfing between Fox, MSNBC, CNBC, and a local station. Now I never hear anybody claim that MSNBC is anything BUT a liberal outlet, they even say it themselves. Its Fox viewers who are deluded into thinking what they're getting is "Fair and Balanced" instead of the "conservative" counterpoint to MSNBC. Its laughable that because they say it so much y'all believe it MUST be true.

Benghazi, Mali, and the Need for a Defensive American Strategy

....In Washington many of the same Congressmen who clamor to start new wars in Iran and Syria are the most vehement in attacking the State Department for not protecting its personnel. Often they are also those who know the least about the outside world. Causing many of America’s problems, it is the American congress and its neoconservative leadership who think Washington can order the whole world to follow America’s prescriptions. Bribes, bombs and intimidation is their idea of how to run the world. As British historian Anatol Lieven, then with the New America Foundation put it, America, which most benefited from the international rule of law, was bent on “kicking to pieces the hill of which it is king,” the “rule-based liberal capitalist order” which it helped establish after World War II.

It is they who deny, in the words of their much admired Bush official John Bolton, any role for the rule of international law on the grounds that “it only constricts Washington’s freedom of action.”

You've seen it before. You're just a denier. No amount of evidence would work for you. You're a blockhead!!

----------

""The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.

"Scientific evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal."

- Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is very likely human-induced and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented in the past 1,300 years.1

Earth-orbiting satellites and other technological advances have enabled scientists to see the big picture, collecting many different types of information about our planet and its climate on a global scale. Studying these climate data collected over many years reveal the signals of a changing climate.

Certain facts about Earth's climate are not in dispute:

The heat-trapping nature of carbon dioxide and other gases was demonstrated in the mid-19th century. Their ability to affect the transfer of infrared energy through the atmosphere is the scientific basis of many JPL-designed instruments, such as AIRS. Increased levels of greenhouse gases must cause the Earth to warm in response.
Ice cores drawn from Greenland, Antarctica, and tropical mountain glaciers show that the Earth’s climate responds to changes in solar output, in the Earth’s orbit, and in greenhouse gas levels. They also show that in the past, large changes in climate have happened very quickly, geologically-speaking: in tens of years, not in millions or even thousands.""

The Government-Created Subprime Mortgage Meltdown

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.

The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.

more..........

Been 4 years, I think it's time to hold Obama the free market destroyer accountable. He get's credit for 200,000 new federal jobs and the failed "green" energy disasters that cost us app.$90 billion, but no credit for a single private sector job, quite the contrary.

Piling on tens of thousands of new rules and regulations is not how you unloose the free market, only in the delusions of misguided communists would that scheme work..

Jobs??? We don't need no steenking jobs!!! Barak Obama
