Almost forgot, move forward and forget the TeaParty blah, blah, blah. It's old, tired and has outlived the liberal usage. Can you come up with more up to date data? 2000, 2008 really isn't a great model to use. Think of it this way, if your making a pitch to someone for a job, or to recruit their business, are you going to use information that is how old? No, I would think you would try to use the most current.

Why is anyone proud to have this idiot represent Texas? He was born with money, has no idea what it's like to live paycheck to paycheck. It's time for a governor with republican ideals, yet is still in touch with the day to day life of your average Texan. He has no idea how the cost of diapers, formula, health insurance and gasoline will set back working people! Not a bad guy, just ignorant of the real world works

Texan is correct: Blah, blah, blah. BTW, Texas has plenty of interest, just doesn't need to sell bonds to raise cash. The state's economy is doing fine it seems. Lord, where have you been? Corps. are leaving other states and moving there in droves. "

Magpul left Colorado over new gun control laws and Beretta followed suit when Maryland went down the same anti-2nd Amendment path.
Now Colt Competition, which makes AR-15 style rifles, is leaving Connecticut. It’s heading to Texas, which is one of America’s most business-friendly and gun-friendly states."
Did you already forget the $6 billion that Ricky borrowed from Obama for his bailout of the state debt in 2011? Yup get those guns down there. We have some in N.H. and they do not employ all that many. As to the validity of your claims, you loss your creditability when you commented on the 10’s of Thousands Daily moving to Texas from California. Pretty much anything else you claim is rendered moot.
You asked for something recent. Gave you that with Bernanke’s Surprise. Hot off the wires where in as all I get from you is one comment out of dozens with any substance worth elaborating on. AND what about 2000 and 2008? Just stating an example where even secured CD’s failed to keep up to the money market bonds. Well since you are SOOO interested in that era, of 2000 to 2008, let me remind you of the PERFECT STORM. Keep your weather out for it. Wait for it, wait for it…..

…………..“Perfect Storm”
The storm arrived in February 2008.
Fannie Mae reports a $ 3.55 billion loss for the fourth quarter of 2007.
Collapsing in March 2008 Bear Sterns accepts buy out by J.P. Morgan Chase. Feds put up $30 billion loan for the purchase.
Carlyle Group defaults on a $16.6 billion debt.
Feds free up $200 billion to support Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
April; International Monetary Fund projects a $945 billion loss from the finical crises. G-7 finance minister agrees to institute a new finical regulations.
June; Repossession of home mortgages doubles and accelerating. Hundreds, including 2 Bear Sterns managers are charged with fraud in the subprime mortgage market.
July; Oil hits all time high of $145 per barrel. Gas at $4 a gallon.
Mortgage lender IndyMac collapses. Freddie Mac and Fannie May spiraling down. Bush announces not to worry, have faith.. Feds guarantee the debts of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
U.S. Secretary of The Treasury Hank Paulson quote “ The global economy is more sound; it is as strong as I’ve seen it in my business career”
September; U.S. Government seizes control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
On the 17th second oldest investment bank, Lehman Brothers declares bankruptcy. Merrill Lynch is bought out by Bank Of America. Feds bail out AIG Insurance for $85billion
White House through Hank Paulson request $700 billion {no strings attached} bailout plan, for banks and free up some credit.
Last two standing investment banks, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs are forced to convert to holding companies. This allows them to have direct access to Feds discount window for loans.
September 26; Feds seizes Washington Mutual in America’s largest ever U.S. Bank failure.
September 29; Republican led House rejects presidents Bush’s request of $700 billion bailout.
Wachovia Bank collapsing; negotiations with Citigroup for take over.
Bailout clears the House of Representatives and Bush immediately signs into law.
October 6 to the 10th; Dow drops a record 2,031 points. Weekly loss of 19.67%!
November 4,2008 Obama elected as the economy shrinks by 9% to become the Great Recession. Only the Great Depression was greater in all of U.S. History.
Consider when Bush entered the White House with a budget surplus, a prosperous economy, and a strong middle class. Eight years later leaves the economy, stock markets and the budget, in utter chaos !
Presidential ranking puts Bush slightly ahead of Herbert Hoover. Which is the lowest end of the ranking system.

Here is some really old news, from June 13, 2013. Ah those were the days.. Something else you fail to grasp about these historical events is they educate the ones who learn from history. You have a problem with History 101 as well? That speaks volumes about you..
Chasm widens sucking in the right wing nuts and Teabaggers alike. Traditionalist conservatives are spitting out the poisonous Tea.
Democrats and republican moderates have joined forces. Sweeping aside the Tea Party and the right wing nuts. In all places, Arizona! A previous bestial of the Tea Party.
Between them both they actually came to a budget with bipartisan support. On June 13, 2013 Governor Jan Brewer {R} Led the way that will add over 300,000 of their uninsured citizens to the roles of the insured. Embracing the Obamacare Health Care Plan.
Governor Jan Brewer gathered up her allies and repulsed themselves from the intoxicated Teabaggers and their minions. Carrying it so far as not to answerer any of the Tea and right wing nuts questions and shooting down any of their proposals.
Obamacare exposed the rift that is growing into a chasm where the Tea and the right wing nuts are being pushed into.
Their Senate President Andy Biggs {R} who was a staunch opponent to the Obamacare was swept aside. All these right wing nuts and the Teabaggers, had to say , was similar to what we find on these threads. Right wing nuts and Teabaggers, Constant redundant dysfunctional rhetoric and derogatory remarks. No substance or valid argument. Sputtering and babbling.. Now we know where these urchins get their cue’s from. Rushing Foxes with their Pied Piper’s melodies of “A La Propaganda.”
The chasm widens..

"We" in NH, I NEVER commented on "10's of thousands". Last, your lack of current information rendered your posts "moot" a long time ago, it's just fun to get you started. I'm not interested in "that era", go back and look at your own writings. You have ME confused with another poster pal. I have talked to a couple gun manufacturers in the northeast and the business environment there is less than friendly. I know of one "known" one trying to vacate. I'm on the phone daily with this industry.

Hey Bernard.562,000 people moved out of California in 2011.I believe that is tens of thousands.468,000 moved there. Subtract one from the other. You get 194,000. That number also is tens of thousands.

You misunderstand. I am talking about the whites in America who are poor but, have to suffer with it because they are white.
They will not get out of poverty because they cannot buy educatioon for their children. There are no scholarships for white children. If whites are the majority population, isn't white poverty a national poverty?
