"Bush isn't president."
Bush republican 2008 Depression and stock market crash are still here.
Bush did NOT attend the convention of his party, for get the name of that party, in 2012. Neither did his father GHW Bush.
2008 economic collapse was caused by the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program. Here's the history, moron:

1999 Clinton coerces Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to institute nation-wide a subprime loan program for people who cannot possibly pay the loans.
2003 the Republicans give to the Democrats no effective oversight of their Marxist subprime program in exchange for the Democrats supporting the war in Iraq.
January, 2007, Democrats take over all oversight of the institutions that were most instrumental in the economic collapse. The lies from Democrats Dodd and Frank after this oversight began are too numerous to list in a post limited to 4000 words.
After 2 years of oversight by Democrats, the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing loan program collapsed the economy.

Now, do you have another question about the recent history of the United States?

Lack of inventory is a problem here also, but the days of huge developments built on speculation are over.

Builders start only a few homes at a time, and only as fast as they can be sold before completion.

Interest rates are almost sure to increase, which will depress housing prices, although a significant portion of the local market is investors, not first-time homebuyers.

That black flag is a symbol for every Wahhabist terrorists, you moron. It represents world domination by Wahhabism, you dolt.
And, idiot, you need to educate yourself on Wahhabism. Wahhabism and freedom are diametrically opposed.
It is always a dangerous place any place where the Wahhabist terrorists are operating.
Perhaps you can explain to us why we have Wahhabist terrorists in the White House every day, especially since they openly promote being at war with the United States.
... or, was that information not in your last indoctrination session?
So, since the government of Egypt says openly they are at war with the United States, why are we giving them hundreds of billions of dollars worth of arms?

Only an idiot wants what the Democrats have planned.
The Democrats are too full of themselves to not doing it, and too ignorant to avoid doing it.
It should be obvious to everyone the Democrats intend to eliminate the Constitution.
It should be obvious the Democrats are preparing for a large-scale war with the American people.
It should be obvious the Democrats' economic agenda will collapse the government.

Just connect the dots to predict the future.

I do believe we will fight another war over the principles of limited government and individual liberty in this country. The Democrats think so, too. That's why Janet Napolitano is buying more weaponry than 90 percent of the countries in the world have.

Walmart is destroying this great nation.
US manufacturing is largely unable to compete on the world market, with the exception of certain higher-technology products. Walmart really has nothing to do with this, because smaller retailers also buy from the smae foreign suppliers.

So, how does Homer plan to persuade Americans to pay higher prices for American-made products...if they can find them?

By the way, "immigration reform" will flood the US with even more unskilled people.

The Bush administration looking into two large organizations is nothing to even sneeze at.
Maybe you should look into who Clinton went after. O'Reilly alone was audited 3 times under Clinton.
Even Clinton's targeting pales in comparison to the number of individuals and small groups, not to mention the larger ones, who were not only denied tax exemption under the law but were grilled gestapo-style by the FBI wanting names and addresses of their associates, what they said in their prayers and what material they read.
We're not in Kansas anymore, Tenzing. Time you figured that out.
So... are you claiming Clinton ordered it?

Well, actually his father was Kenyan. But Obama spent his young life growing up in Indonesia from 1967 to 1971...his "impressionabe" years.
His father was definitely Muslim. And didn't Obama write in his book that his Indonesian step-father followed "a brand of Islam"?
And isn't Islam the dominant religion in Indonesia which also has the largest Muslim population than any other country in the world?
I believe he did and, yes, it is.
But I'm sure Obama was not influenced by his father's or his step-father's or his Indonesian Muslim roots.
You just give muslims a bad name regardless of facts or rationality. Given the fact that I'm from a Christian country (America), & my father, his father, & mother are all preachers,(I didn't name Aunts, Uncles, & Cousins), who all followed the same path but, by your logic, I should be Christian but, I'm not! I'm no religion. I believe in good & evil, God & the Devil, spirit & mind, knowledge & ignorance! You name what religion his father & step father was but, never mention what religion the people that raised him was, his mother & grand parents!

YOU ALREADY GOT SONNED SELL YOUR SOUL FOR TRICKS Many of the same social problems highlighted in a landmark 1965 study on black family structure have only worsened over the last 48 years and are now causing similar hardship for white and Hispanic families.
That’s a major finding of a new report by the Urban Institute, a liberal think tank, which re-examines the circumstances of black families nearly five decades after former Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan authored the controversial report,“The Negro Family: The Case for National Action.”
Moynihan was an assistant secretary in the Department of Labor in the 1960s when his report cited the breakdown of the nuclear family as the main cause of problems in the black community.
The so-called Moynihan Report looked at societal disparities between white and black families and the need for government action to address them. It focused on high rates of unemployment, crime, poverty, unwed parenting and other social ills that formed a “tangle of pathologies” that steered many black families into a continuing cycle of poor education, limited job prospects and dysfunctional long-term poverty.
The report argued that the rise of female-headed black households diminished the authority of black men within their families, leaving them unable to serve as responsible fathers and providers, partly because of their limited job prospects.
Many African-American leaders criticized the report at the time, saying it was ripe with stereotypes and played down the effects of institutional discrimination and racism. Others said the report “blamed the victim” for the causes and consequences of poverty.
While African-Americans have made substantial progress in high school graduation rates, college enrollment, income and home ownership rates since the 1960s, vast disparities still remain in comparison to whites on a multitude of social measures, said Gregory Acs, director of the Urban Institute’s Income and Benefits Policy Center.
And while many social problems are still disproportionately centered in the African-American community, they have also increased in the larger non-black society.
