Only a low-information con would try and give Reagan credit for ending the cold war and bringing down the Berlin Wall. You people really need to stop spinning.
FACT: The Soviet economy had begun to stagnate by 1975 and Gorbachev recognized the fundamental weaknesses in the Soviet system years long before he took over power and years before Reagan was President. It was Gorbachev who reformed the Soviet system. Reagan merely grasped his coattail.
BS

The Soviet economy was a lie for 70 years, but Reagan forced them into collapse by military spending that the Soviets could not match.

Here's an idea. Maybe all the Republicans who are so outraged at government spending that they're willing to butcher said government outright rather than spend another thin dime on programs like "feeding hungry kids" or "making a general attempt to ensure the meat you buy will not poison you" could get together and ask whether we really need a constant stream of meaningless do-nothing bills based on conspiracy theories peddled by charlatans. We could start with asking the folks that introduced these two latest bills, Texas Republicans John Culberson and John Carter.
I know, I know: It's a silly thought. If you got rid of all the do-nothing bills and conspiracy theories, what on earth would Republicans do with themselves?
Alternatively, we need to start peddling our own ridiculous theories. I think the odds are good that we can convince wide swaths of the GOP base that Culberson and Carter are, in fact, merely manatees disguised as humans, put there in an elaborate attempt by the Illuminati to draw suspicion away from the real masterminds of the Agenda 21 plot, a subterranean society of telepathic earthworms bent on reducing humanity to a post-industrial, composting-based society. Those psychic worms slashed my tires, once. I'm sure of it.

"real dumb"
Do you know the time frame of when the poster saved money for a down payment? No you do not, but then you do not know much of anything.
On a personal note my wife and I saved enough money in just over two years to make a down payment on a home. Decent neighbor hood, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths. Lived there almost 5 years, sold the house and bought a bigger home. Mommy's did not contribute a cent, neither did Daddy. Some if us do not need their parents to support them. I can understand why you could never save enough for a down payment on a house, lawn mowers particularly lousy one like you live hand to mouth.

GZ was asked by the dispatcher if he was following Martin and GZ said yeah. That's when the dispatcher told him they didn't need him to do that. GZ said okay.
Then the next thing was the police were going to meet GZ behind the clubhouse in his truck.
That's why I'm glad the court will decide.

People on both sides have been jumping to conclusions rather than waiting for the evidence to be presented.
I can't wait to hear the DNA evidence. I will be interested to hear whether or not any of Martin's DNA was found on Zimmerman's holster. There is so much that hasn't been released or explained due to Florida's public disclosure laws. I know you strongly believe that Zimmerman is guilty of murder. I just don't know but am confident justice will prevail.
After reading the 911 transcript again, the police and GZ made arrangemnts to meet behind the clubhouse.

So if GZ was just waiting for the police to arrive outside his truck and was attacked, it puts a new light on things.

Also, according to the transcript, Martin spotted GZ and was approaching him while GZ was on the phone with the dispatcher at his house before running away.

Glad there are jurors to hear all the evidence myself.

Lack of Trust of Obama and DHS May Kill Immigration Bill

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) doesn’t believe the Gang of Eight immigration bill – which he authored — has enough votes to break a possible filibuster on the Senate floor.

When asked on “Fox and Friends” Tuesday whether the bill has 60 “yes” votes, Rubio replied:“No, and I think even the Democrats would concede that.”

“There’s a few reasons for it, but one of the things we’ve learned over the last few weeks through the open process that happened through the committee process and all the public input that we’ve gotten is how little confidence people have that the federal government will enforce the law,” Rubio continued.

The full Senate will begin considering the legislation, which passed the Judiciary Committee last month on a 13-5 vote, next week.

Rubio, considered critical to the success or failure of immigration reform, is mulling a measure that would put Congress – rather than the Department of Homeland Security — in charge of drafting the border control strategy that is tied to the pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants in the United States.

“We don’t want to be back here in two years, in five years, 10 years dealing with another 5 or 10 million illegal immigrants,” Rubio said.“And so that’s the key. And people don’t trust the Department of Homeland Security to do this job or to come up with a plan that will do the job.”

It's hard to imagine why the head of the IRS would have to be at the WH that many times no matter who he met with.

But we're forced to use our imaginations because he won't tell us.

We only know he was there one time for the Easter Egg roll.

Keeping it all in the family -

Senator Dianne Feinstein has long been accused of corruption and unethical behavior in Congress. From going after the Second Amendment to making tens of millions of dollars through her husband’s companies, Feinstein seems to take unbridled glee in being one of the most corrupt members of Congress today...

Please list the legislation the Democrats passed the first 9 months of 2007 that created this recession.

Since Obama took office with the country losing 750,000 jobs a month, job loses shrank & we have had job growth.
