I just read it.

In no way does Sean suggest grain prices led to the Great Depression.

If you were smart enough to look closely, the commodities markets didn't fail until after the equity markets failed in Oct. 1929.

Main causes of the Great Depression:

1. Stock Market Crash of 1929
Many believe erroneously that the stock market crash that occurred on Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929 is one and the same with the Great Depression. In fact, it was one of the major causes that led to the Great Depression. Two months after the original crash in October, stockholders had lost more than $40 billion dollars. Even though the stock market began to regain some of its losses, by the end of 1930, it just was not enough and America truly entered what is called the Great Depression.

2. Bank Failures
hroughout the 1930s over 9,000 banks failed. Bank deposits were uninsured and thus as banks failed people simply lost their savings. Surviving banks, unsure of the economic situation and concerned for their own survival, stopped being as willing to create new loans. This exacerbated the situation leading to less and less expenditures.

3. Reduction in Purchasing Across the Board
With the stock market crash and the fears of further economic woes, individuals from all classes stopped purchasing items. This then led to a reduction in the number of items produced and thus a reduction in the workforce. As people lost their jobs, they were unable to keep up with paying for items they had bought through installment plans and their items were repossessed. More and more inventory began to accumulate. The unemployment rate rose above 25% which meant, of course, even less spending to help alleviate the economic situation.

4. American Economic Policy with Europe
As businesses began failing, the government created the Smoot-Hawley Tariff in 1930 to help protect American companies. This charged a high tax for imports thereby leading to less trade between America and foreign countries along with some economic retaliation.

----------

Only a fool would believe that wheat prices caused th eDepression.

Flake is the fool. You're his accomplice.

5. Drought Conditions
While not a direct cause of the Great Depression, the drought that occurred in the Mississippi Valley in 1930 was of such proportions that many could not even pay their taxes or other debts and had to sell their farms for no profit to themselves.

You are a liar.
You refer to a report requested by Sessions that asked the GAO to look at the ACA with several of the revenue generating aspect removed. Not the entire bill.
Then fucking dumbasses like you run screaming through the streets, My God you people are dumb.

Yes, the Palin trailer trash are a problem.

It's just interesting though, isn't it, that the Moynihan Report focused on the discussion of children being born out of wedlock warning the Aid to Families with Dependent Children program's rules for payments were if the "man was out of the house" leading poor women to throw their husbands out of the house?
And agreeing with Republicans in 1994 that a correction was needed in the welfare system that encouraged women to raise their children without fathers?
Moynihan: "The Republicans are saying we have a helluva problem, and we do."
Republicans are still saying that. So did Clinton when he signed the Welfare Reform Act.
Obama thinks the more the merrier.
Kind of a contradiction to previous democrats.

Certain areas are experiencing worker and supply shortages__Lennar orders and stock prices are gangbusters__some cities and counties are scrambling to rehire permitting personnel and inspectors etc.
Not where I live although the housing industry here is stabilizing and commercial construction is gaining steam. It's a big nation we share and the sun shines on a different dogs ass everyday.
The housing market in Temecula is currently strong because of a shortage of supply, and cash buyers talk loudest. Prices are still well below the peak prices of 2007.

Builders construct almost nothing on spec, have just a very few houses in inventory. Bidders compete for the few houses available.

The problem remains that, despite the strong market, many homeowners are underwater on their mortgages and cannot afford to sell. They can make their mortgage payments and will continue to do so until prices catch up.

Your wife's going to hit you over the head with her empty Vodka bottle.

You'd better run out and get her another before she vomits all over you.

His trip to Israel is so much fluff, neither side is listening to his puffery. Israelis laugh at him and the arabs despise him.
The Palestinians are treating Obama like he treats Congress, basically refusing to negotiate until they are granted all their demands in advance. They smell weakness from the US and Obama.

Kind of like saving on your utility bills or car repair bills by just telling the providers that you won't pay as much as they want to charge. Works every time.

My mistake.
111 Democrats voted aye and 147 voted nay.
However, if all democrats had voted nay in both the house and the senate, it wouldn't have passed.
So, technically, they passed it.
I posted the numbers earlier.

Your numbers are like you, full of shit.

Senate Democrats; Aye 29 Nay 21.

House Democrats; Aye 82 Nay 126.

You even make up false vote counts. Where you get your nonsense? O'Reilly??

The Repubs supported Bush's War nearly 100%.

A fact they're still running away from.

House Repugnants Aye 215 Nay 6

Senate Repugnants Aye 48 Nay 1

Your side owns the Iraq War. Other than nitwits like you, no one bothers to argue otherwise.

You're in denial.

You deny that O'Reilly's a morally damaged person.

You deny that Bush was the worst President in American History who lied to get us into a disasterous war. One that we lost.

You're sick.
