The conversation WAS afterall about honesty and intregrity, leave it to both you and Galt to change the subject, I don't think either of you would recognize the truth.
The Reagan spending produced positive results, the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Iron Curtain.

The Obama spending disappeared into the pockets of labor unions.

By the way, we are also ripping you off for natural gas, water, sewer, etc. We own everything and charge you more than we charge people who pay the taxes to support you.
So you are saying people like Carol and your other fellow Republicans don't have electric bills? You're weird.

Look, Goober, we realize you visited Vegas once in the '30's, but Adelson's casinos are in rampant in three continents--and he's facing charges in all of them...

The Soviet Union died from within, Carter had as much to do with their demise as Reagan, Kennedy, Eisenhower, etc.

Obama spending stopped a full blown depression dead in it's tracks and saved Homer's 401K, for that I am eternally grateful.

No president in history - even with wars and natural disasters and depressions and recessions - has raised the deficit that high with so little results.

However, the New York tribe of Jews are vicious people who meet every stereotype ever created. You, Jean from Queens, and Debbie from Kew Gardens are part of that tribe.
Both you and George Soros have a history of denying your heritage and selling out your people.
But you love you some Adelson??? How much time did you spend in Manhattan, Fraudy?

If you don't pay federal income taxes, then you don't have any skin in the game and have no right to determine how our money is spent.

Just take your welfare money, be thankful for it, and STFU.

The comparison between Reagan's deficit and Obama's in turning a recession around is like comparing a piggy bank to Wells Fargo.

You're having a hissy fit about the piggy bank even when the economy booned within two years after Carter's recession but defend Wells Fargo even if we're teetering on the verge of The Great Depression, Part II.

It is government spending and liberal policies that is the cause
of full blown depressions.

When the market is in need of a correction...its best to leave
it play its self out.

A large crash like in 2008 should have quickly recovered, but
it did not, because of what Bush and later on Obama did.
Too much spending and too much in the way of Fed. regs.

Obama prevented the recovery....he only made things much worse.
And it costed the average working American a great deal money.

No president in history - even with wars and natural disasters and depressions and recessions - has raised the deficit that high with so little results.
People still talk as if the deficit were exploding, as if the United States budget were on an unsustainable path; in fact, the deficit is falling more rapidly than it has for generations, it is already down to sustainable levels, and it is too small given the state of the economy.

Start with the raw numbers. Americaís budget deficit soared after the 2008 financial crisis and the recession that went with it, as revenue plunged and spending on unemployment benefits and other safety-net programs rose. And this rise in the deficit was a good thing! Federal spending helped sustain the economy at a time when the private sector was in panicked retreat; arguably, the stabilizing role of a large government was the main reason the Great Recession didnít turn into a full replay of the Great Depression.

But after peaking in 2009 at $1.4 trillion, the deficit began coming down. The Congressional Budget Office expects the deficit for fiscal 2013 (which began in October and is almost half over) to be $845 billion. That may still sound like a big number, but given the state of the economy it really isnít.

Bear in mind that the budget doesnít have to be balanced to put us on a fiscally sustainable path; all we need is a deficit small enough that debt grows more slowly than the economy. To take the classic example, America never did pay off the debt from World War II ó in fact, our debt doubled in the 30 years that followed the war. But debt as a percentage of G.D.P. fell by three-quarters over the same period.

Except, this is an insecure WOMAN.
DEBIL is a WOMAN. A misogynistic WOMAN.
Who is definitely insecure and feels threatened and intimidated by you.

She has no power any more. IF she ever did.

I knew you didn't write the 'fake carol post(s)"
because you've stated both your age and your birthdate.

PS Many have taken up in your defense.
But, you did a fine job on your own, holding your ground, without compromising your principles!!
