For the record, this thread was set up to talk about anything and everything but politics. There are so many political threads on Topix that those of you who insist on discussing it here suck. I miss my regs friends who have been turned off by your crap.
I don't think it was politics that caused folks to leave.... Sublime is still friends with Angelique770 and can ask him to come back and enforce the old rules. Just a thought....

Increased terrorism? Did 3,000 Americans die on our soil under Obama?
There have been more terror attacks and attempted attacks under Obama. And this was after his world apology tour.

During the George W. Bush administration, the federal government spending was increased from $1789 billion to $2983 billion (70%) but the revenues were only increased from $2025 billion to $2524 billion (25%). Individual income tax revenues were increased by 14%, corporate tax revenues by 50%, customs and duties by 40%. Discretionary defense spending was increased by 107%, discretionary domestic spending by 62%, Medicare spending by 131%, social security by 51%, and income security spending by 130%. Cyclically adjusted, revenues rose by 35% and spending by 65%.

The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate rose from 4.3% in January 2001, peaking at 6.3% in June 2003 and reaching a trough of 4.4% in March 2007. After an economic slowdown, the rate rose again to 6.1% in August 2008 and up to 7.2% in December 2008. From December 2007 when the recession started to December 2008, an additional 3.6 million people became unemployed.

George Bush's presidency ended in January 2009.

What about the anthrax attacks, which killed five people? There were the D.C. Sniper attacks, which, by themselves, give Bush a tally of 15 attacks, but which the right will doubtless count against Obama, for some reason. Weren’t those guys black? There was the 2002 attack on the El-Al ticket counter, which killed 2. There was the terrorist SUV attack in 2006, which injured nine, and the 2007 Salt Lake City shooting that killed five people, and wounded four. If you use Lindsey Graham’s rules, that puts George W. Bush at 31 attacks, not counting 9/11, and under Cotton’s rules, 20, to President Obama’s five. That’s not including non-”Jihadi” attacks like attacks on abortion clinics, of which there were seven on Bush’s watch.

Are you counting domestic terror attacks like Newton, Aurora, the Navy Yard and others?

The "World Apology Tour"? Did you get a t-shirt?

The line, "how can a loser ever win?" is so apropos.

Of course he does. He will implode when Hillary is the next President.
Bush was so great that he was nonexistent at the last two conventions. Instead there was Clint Eastwood talking to a chair.
Hmmm, what will an imploded Dog look like?

Think he might channel a liberal eventually?

I'd say that as long as you're getting to the rest of the styff yoy want to get to, you're not showing addictive behaviours toward it, and some of your net usage is "educational," don't worry too much. I haven't gotten to any of those little home improvement projects i thouht i would by now, but things aren't any worse around here, either...

Don't worry about that. Think of it as brain training.

Both unfortunately, but some of the I-net I can't escape and that makes reigning in the other stuff harder
