Once again, tell us how your trickle down economics is supposed to bring national properity.
Didn't happen?
Well, that means you're a failure, doesn't it?
Mr. Fib, you've got your nerve showing your cowardly butt around here again after you showed what a chickenshit you are.

Now, where's them jobs Oblamer promised and where's the $85 billion a month going?

Stagflation is NOT "inflation". It's a stagnant economy, just like what we have now...and the term of the era it originally referenced was in part as a result of the "OIL EMBARGO" of the era.
Then why use the word "flation" as part of the word? Wouldn't "stagnant" be enough? In other words, it should be intuitive that there's a reason for having "flation" in there.

If you one course in economics, you'd know "stagflation" is not just a slow economy, but one accompanied by rising costs (inflation). So you're only half right.
Lousy Foreign Policy-Libya. We had NO business going "there" to start with.
We were not "in" Libya.
Add to that eased sanctions on Iran. Is there some credible reason as to WHY sanctions would be eased, when there's been no compliance as far as nuclear production activities?
Carter did not "ease" economic sanctions against Iran. He implemented and maintained them. The pressure was sufficient to obtain release of the hostages. As for Iran's nuclear activities in 1979-1980, they were virtually non-existent. On nobody's radar screen.
Carter was a TRUE diplomat and intellect, a humane and decent being- with a "resume" to prove it.
I think he showed good judgement not to interfere with the regime change in Iran. It was during his administration that a national oil reserve was established.

Now you are being dishonest. I am Roman Catholic and do not apologize for that fact. But I challenge you to bring up a post where I support abortion/murder or gay marriage. Just one. I have better things to do. You are wrong again when you say I do not recognize the Socialist nature of my church. I would far rather give monies to my church rather than the Federal government, I see the results of our giving to folks in need. I see no positives from the dollars taken from citizens that are pissed away on failed social, fill their hands programs. Those programs do just one thing, build on the sit on your fannie mantra that far to many American's depend on.
Peace
I'm an ex catholic, even I wouldn't deny the church does many, many good things for the world. They should let priests marry to rid themselves of homosexuals, however.

I see no positives from the dollars taken from citizens that are pissed away on tax-exempt groups like Catholic Charities to subsidize their "charitable" work. It much better to spend those millions to support social welfare programs than help the Catholic church build up its coffers.
sounds to me like dumbass libs like you should love Catholic charities, they're just like lying sack of shit Oblamer:

Catholic Charities USA: Home

The largest private network of social service organizations in the United States works to support families, reduce poverty, and build communities.

You GOP boneheads are totally clueless to your rank hypocrisy.
As for your cliche imagery, it's typical GOP stereotyping designed to whip up hate between whites and minorities.
Lying ignoramus, no money was given to corporations. Oh wait, except Obama handing out $85 billion a month to Wall Street, gawd ur an idiot.

1. I didn't coin the term-economists etc f the era did.

Investopedia explains 'Stagflation'
A condition of slow economic growth and relatively high unemployment

Stagflation occurs when the economy isn't growing but prices are, which is not a good situation for a country to be in. This happened to a great extent during the 1970s, when world oil prices rose dramatically, fueling sharp inflation in developed countries. For these countries, including the U.S., stagnation increased the inflationary effects.

Like I stated-Just like the CURRENT economy...STAGNANT with HIGH Unemployment rates.

2. We wre indeed --ALL over Libya and then some (what are you-TOTALLY ignorant?)

Operation Enduring Freedom - Trans Sahara (OEF-TS)
Operation Juniper Shield

On 20 April 2012, 3 members of the US Army and 3 civilians were killed in what was reported as a vehicle accident in Mali. The US military members were in Mali as part of an on-going engagement prior to the unrest that occurred in Mali on 21 March 2012.

3. WRONG DECADE and WRONG Potus on the "easement of sanctions on Iran-DOOFUS.

(But for some decent info on what Carter faced-try READINg this-NO need to REWRITE or towsit and distort Anything-PLENTY already been written-
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/fe...

As for the decade I was referencing (as in THIS one of 2013=NOT forty years BACKWARDS)
The Obama administration began softening sanctions on Iran after the election of Iran’s new president in June, months before the current round of nuclear talks in Geneva or the historic phone call between the two leaders in September.
While those negotiations now appear on the verge of a breakthrough the key condition for Iran—relief from crippling sanctions—began quietly and modestly five months ago.
A review of Treasury Department notices reveals that the U.S. government has all but stopped the financial blacklisting of entities and people that help Iran evade international sanctions since the election of its president, Hassan Rouhani, in June...
Lake, E. "Obama’s Secret Iran Détente" TDBeast. 11/8/2013.

There, now try not to get confused with all that info in front of you!

Well, good news.

http://www.nytimes.com/1995/04/02/us/states-m...

I feel a little more calm now. But not quite completely yet.

Sorry I went off. But what is wrong with people who treat animals so cruelly? And horses of all creatures?

Even watching bulls being taunted and tormented in bullfighting arenas, I always root for the bull. Always.

But I do feel better knowing it has been outlawed in the states and even in Mexico though it's probably still going on until they get caught.

I would take on anyone to protect an animal being abused. And die trying if necessary.

The shutdown could have been avoided if he had agreed to a delay before it happened instead of afterwards.
But continuing to blame Republicans after five years is a hard habit to break. Even with a democratic-controlled Congress for the first two years, he still blamed Republicans.
We can only imagine how hard it must be to break the addiction now.
The so called shutdown was a blip, even counting the money Ostupida spent trying to close outdoor parks and monuments, what a dirtbag that man is.
