"Poll: Americans want the government to stop banning everything they like"

"According to a Reason-Rupe poll, Americans do not want government to ban trans-fats, e-cigarettes, online poker, violent video games or genetic testing kits."

1960 Recession

Starting in April 1960, the recession lasted 10 months. GDP was -1.9%(-2%) in Q2 and -5%(-5.1%) in Q4. Unemployment reached a peak of 7.1% in May 1961.
Recession of 1957

It was eight months (August 1957-April 1958). GDP was - 4.2% in Q4 1957 then immediately plummeted 10.4% in Q1 1958. Unemployment didn't reach its peak of 7.1% until September 1958. It was caused by a contractionary monetary policy.
Recession of 1953

Beginning July 1953, this recession lasted 10 months, a result of the end of the Korean War. Unemployment didn't reach its peak of 6.1% until September 1954, two months after the recession ended. GDP was down 6.2% in Q4 of 1953.
1949 Recession

This 11 month recession began in November 1948 and lasted until October 1949, when unemployment reached a peak of 7.9%. GDP fell .5% for the year. This was another natural down cycle, caused by the economy adjusting to peace-time production.
1945 Recession

This recession lasted only eight months, between February and October 1945. However, it seemed to last longer, since GDP plummeted 10.6% in 1946. This was a natural result of the demobilization from WWII, as the huge demand for military weapons were no longer needed. Government spending dropped, although business spending was robust.(Source: NBER, Business Cycle Expansions and Contractions)

<quoted text>certainly you must ask every liberal and every democrat what was the NSA doing? of course we know the answer: they were harassing Tea Party members like myself. Of course the left is ignorant when it comes to Islam: And incidentally the O'bama plan of internet surveillance by O'bama and his NSA is a lie.
"Something scary happened on Friday the 13th, but you’d hardly have noticed from the news reports.
The Joint Terrorism Task Force in Wichita, Kansas, arrested a 58-year old airport employee in a plot to carry out a suicide bombing at the city’s Mid-Continent Airport.
The man, Terry Lee Loewen, was a white convert to Islam who authorities say became “radicalized” over the Internet.
Loewen planned to drive a vehicle laden with explosives onto the airport and explode it—and himself—at the terminal where hundreds of unsuspecting travelers went about their normal business.
Luckily, the FBI had intercepted Loewen and his vehicle contained only dummy explosives planted by an FBI agent that Loewen believed to be a collaborator.
This plot received a great deal of exposure on the Drudge Report, but none of the major news agencies thought it worthy of an email news bulletin—except for Fox News.
A plot like this would have stopped the presses just 15 years ago. Today, it’s just another news story on a busy news day. In another week or so, very few people outside of Kansas will even remember Terry Lee Loewen’s name, or that he was arrested for attempting to carry out mass murder in the name of Jihad. America is becoming desensitized to jihadi terrorism and that is unfortunate. Islamic Jihad is becoming a customary part of our everyday lives.
What is frightening about the homegrown terrorism that we’ve been seeing the last few years is that those terrorists—or would be suicide bombers—seem to be normal Americans.
Loewen lived in a quiet, middle class, suburban neighborhood in a modest, one-story ranch-style home. In the local newspaper The Wichita Eagle, his neighbors described him as “normal."
But then again the left liberal loons aka democrats describe all Islamist aka Moslems as 'normal'.
You're a liar. We all read about this guy, and, by the way, he was set up by the FBI. Would he have thought of this plot or been able to carry it out and obtain the explosives alone?
It's still entrapment; we shall see how this holds up in court. I have mixed feelings about sting operations; are the culprits lured in by the fbi? I realize it's a fine line, and I am glad this guy was picked up nevertheless, since he apparently had the intent.

<quoted text>The first and perhaps best test for a president is getting elected. While it's true that just about any (D) team could have defeated the "silliness" that the Republican's selected in 08, Obama defeated Hillary Clinton, which was no easy task.
And of course you certainly recall that Obama defeated the Republican entry again in 2012.
The liberal media elected Barack Obama - not Hillary Clinton. Hillary was thrown under the bus by her own party as well as the liberal media.

Surely, you must know this.

Fortunately, the prom king crush is starting to fade among some of the starry-eyed liberals who have the gall to call themselves journalists.

If this was a story about a young white woman in this same situation; and, there are many more of them than blacks; would you have the same contempt?
You don't want minimum wage increased and this woman is a minimum wage worker; she works at a fast food place; the types of places you frequent.
You would never understand. You are blinded by your racism. It really doesn't matter what color she is. Young people,ever increasingly, are being taught to be poor. Libtardism at it's finest!

I suppose that's why she is number 1 in all polls. We know that you racist white supremacists are also misogynists as well and will not be surprised by the filthy vitriol that will spill from your lips about her and women.

*** Poll Result ****

Democrats want the government to control their lives.

They want the government to control what they eat, drive, drink, smoke, etc!

Why?

It is found that Democrats feel incompetent to live their lives so they DEMAND a big government to control them!

The majority of the American people elected President Obama; twice. Hillary may be next if she so chooses. Her background as Secretary of State is phenomenal. Many people didn't want Bill back in the White House; thinking that electing her was really electing him again. Plus she had that entitlement attitude; she was too sure she was going to get the nomination; we all did. One should never be too sure in politics; that was the problem with Mitt and Ann Romney; she even said so,'it's our turn", it was pathetic.
The country has changed, women are feeling their power and they're getting out there to vote, gone are the days where the white males are going to dictate what women do.
It's over.
