Do I REALLY need to list the reasons behind the economic collapse AGAIN?
As the Economist magazine put it, it took multilayers of people and circumstances to screw up this economy.
Blaming Bush is just too easy.
Conveniently forgetting it was Congress who ignored the warnings (on both sides) or a housing bubble that grew disproportionately out of proportion, greed from Wall Street and banks, bad mortgage loans being given out like candy, deregulations without any kind of oversight and blissful ignorance by everyone involved on the part of both Democrats and Republicans takes a bit more effort and insight.
But if we're going to blame Bush for what began in 2007, let's also include the Democrat-controlled Congress that same year.
Shall we?
Fine, include them all. Now let's include the Dem Congress and the Dem president for it's revival, we can leave the Republicans out since they have had no part in it's recovery preferring to remain on the sidelines doing nothing.

They won't.
But if they do, you'll be broke paying medical bills.
I feel sorry for dumb older people who vote against their best interests.
Amazing isn't it? It will be especially sad for the really elderly and sick, who will have to try to buy insurance with a voucher when they have multiple ailments. It's a crime. But, oh well, have to make a profit!!

Employers (whether giant corporations or Mom-and-Pop) are square with their employees every payday. Anybody operating under a different impression is delusional.
This is the mindest that has sent millions of jobs overseas. You're part of the problem.

Visions of Romneyworld:
Carol's husbands company is bought by Bain Capital, the workers are all fired, their pensions gone, healthcare benefits gone. Only 2 years left till you can retire? Too bad, we need to make a profit old timer; but, you can reapply for your job at half of your former wages, no benefits. Take it or leave it.
Medicare? Gone. We'll give you $6000 to go shopping for health insurance; but good luck with that since, in Romneyworld: you can't buy insurance with pre existing conditions. It wouldn't be "profitable", wink wink.
In Romneyworld, your daughters student loan interest rate would double and if she intends to go to graduate school! Good luck, the tuition will double; sorry, have to make a profit. wink, wink.
Someone buys the building you live in and cancels all the leases and doubles the rent; sorry, we have to make a profit, wink, wink.
Vote for Corporate Romney, suckas.

Homer, just how long do you think corporations have been part of the American landscape?

They didn't just pop up out of the ground in the past ten years.

They've been around globally for centuries - in this country more than two centuries.

How do you think most people in the world get paid? Most people work for a company or a corporation unless they are self-employed.

<quoted text> You keep on believing that. Obama only has one side. Obama's! If it benefited him he'd throw the whole damn country under the bus. Make no mistake. This man thinks he is God's gift to the world. His kind are the most dangerous of all. But you just keep on with that messiah worship. I'm sure everything will turn out fine. Just like all the other times it's happened.
Why in the world would he do that? Tell me. How would he benefit from that?

Thank you for agreeing with me.

You obviously know that Hussein Obama has corrupted the system and is suppressing the will of the people.

Prison inmates draw 40% of the vote against Hussein Obama in a Democrat primary. Just think how a serious candidate would fare.
