Hard work and personal responsibility are what made this country great, the dems are no longer interested in either. Nothing nor no one is keeping you from being the next Bill Gates.
What America needs is less Oblamer, less demorats in office. The states doing well now are all republican controlled.
$500 billion a year in welfare and freebies does not instill a work ethic in people and is not sustainable.
nothing is doing you from hitting the lottery but, the deck is stacked against you &, the chances of you doing so is slim to none.
If the current system wasn't a failure, the extension of the Bush tax cuts, Obama raising taxes on folks making over $400,000 & families over $450,000, along with the sequester should've have live to the economy but, it didn't. Capitalism is a system designed to keep majority circulating amongst the top, & the middle class (poor) are the batteries that gives the machine the juice to operate, so in essence, the top use money & access to money to drain the life & blood out of the middle class (poor). Exactly how does it benefit America for billionaires like Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey to make more money in a year then the average American will make in 2 lifetimes? Exactly, it doesn't & it benefits America even less when their type pays little to no taxes in their income. The govt at this point is forced to continue infusing capitol into the economy to money made by the rich & stashed in banks like can goods in a cupboard. The idea of you been make it if you try is smoke & mirrors, & nothing more than inspiration for the blind eye & dead mind to give their flesh blood & live to a evil corrupt system whom really doesn't give a shit about you!

2011 FY Budget Deficit $1.6 Trillion <--- Republicans control House & filibuster all in Senate
2012 FY budget deficit $1.3 trillion
2013 est. deficit $1.1 trillion
There Leadass Lou, I fixed it for you.

Bush added over 5 trillion to the national debt. Add up those budget deficits. Why don't they add up to the national debt increase???? Is it because Bush ran his wars off budget? Obama does not.

Lying imbecile:
I get so tired of educating those who refuse to acknowledge the truth. For the last time, the Bush Tax cuts resulted in 54 straight months of economic growth. The recession occurred after Democrats gained control of Congress and began wildly borrowing and spending trillions of dollars and implementing their bone-headed and supremely irresponsible fiscal policy.
The economic numbers don't lie. Take a look for yourself:
http://forecast-chart.com/chart-gdp-rate.html
The economy grew every single quarter until Q4 of 2008. That's solid continual economic growth that directly resulted from the Bush Tax Cuts.
The economy didn't take a shit until a year and a half after Democrats took over Congress and their socialist policies were in place.
Leadass Lou was very pleased with his Enron Stock he bought in 1997. It provided several years of great growth. The idea that he then lost everything is not important. He still smiles about that growth it had. Leadass Lou isn't very smart.

<quoted text>
At President Clinton’s direction, no fewer than 10 federal agencies issued a chilling ultimatum to banks and mortgage lenders to ease credit for lower-income minorities or face investigations for lending discrimination and suffer the related adverse publicity. They also were threatened with denial of access to the all-important secondary mortgage market and stiff fines, along with other penalties.
The threat was codified in a 20-page “Policy Statement on Discrimination in Lending” and entered into the Federal Register on April 15, 1994, by the Interagency Task Force on Fair Lending. Clinton set up the little-known body to coordinate an unprecedented crackdown on alleged bank redlining.
The edict — completely overlooked by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission and the mainstream media — was signed by then-HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, Attorney General Janet Reno, Comptroller of the Currency Eugene Ludwig and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, along with the heads of six other financial regulatory agencies.
1) Denying loans based on race is illegal. They lost in court.

2) The CRA sais banks, in their communities, had to make more of an effort to help people get mortgages. They had to lower the down payment or the interest rate but mortgage buyers STILL HAD TO SHOW THEY COULD MAKE THOSE PAYMENTS.

So, you believe that banks should be racist. Interesting.

Absolutely no proof of that, plus strong evidence that Obama prolonged the still ongoing recession.
There is no strong evidence.

A recession happens when the amount of money being spent reduces

If in Jan of 2009, you fricken idiot Tea Party dicks cut government spending, you would have reduced further the amount of spending & sent millions more to the unemployment lines deepening the economic crisis.

Kudos to you sir, whatever makes you happy in life. At least you have the clear insight to admit to this reality as oppose to the "patriots" that are here to "enlighten" the masses.

you are getting an agreed judge by me for what little it's worth.

I have clear eyes on this. I'm not going to wear rose-colored glasses when it comes to Russia, or Mr. Putin.
And I'm certainly not going to say to him, I'll give you more flexibility after the election. After the election, he'll get more backbone. Number two, with regards to Iraq, you and I agreed I believe that there should be a status of forces agreement.

What did Obama lead or govern again?
Pushed green energy in Texas, education, and expanded welfare with added faith based welfare.

My God, not green energy initiatives OMG OMG OMG

Not education - those socialist union f*cks.

Not welfare - taking from the rich & giving to the poor.

Funny how you right whiers no longer agree with any of those issues.

Yet here you are, praising Bush.

I can only assume its because you are just ignorant of the facts.

<quoted text> No, your post showed more people had jobs but more people stopped working. Get a clue and the economy is in the tank and sinking fast. More people working means nothing if more people are leaving the job market. Job growth is not keeping up with population growth. Which means more and more high school grads and college grads have no job to go to so they drop out of the job market. GOOD GRIEF!!!
I have news.

I was responding to one of your dumbass buddies who said fewer people were working. That is a lie.

More people working means more people working.

Period.

You get a GD clue.

More people working means that if you count the number of people with jobs, that number is higher than when it was counted previously.

You people are just dumber than sh*t.

If you want top talk participation rate or the number of people leaving the work force then wprd your GD posts that way.

Dave, It appears you have cherry picked charts that exclude certain individuals in the tally. The chart I provided is a total and much more accurate.
Now please explain how total number of people working and number of people participating in the work force would be totally different numbers. They are not.
You said fewer people, moron. not a lower participation rate.

Lets go baak to my example. Would you rather have 50% of $1000 or 45% of $1200.00

When you figure that out, you have your answer.

As a example, as more & more baby boomers retire, it causes the participation rate to drop.
