We celebrate Juneteenth more than the 4th of You Lie, with many family members being from Texas and all.

With the cultural genocide that resulted from slavery, why shouldn't Black Americans have a holiday to celebrate?

It's the type of wood used to make their lip plates..hence the fascination. No wonder pipedream is fussy, those splinters must have hurt getting pulled out of his inner-ass.

ok - so i messed up on the president at the time. my bad.
and at that - that's 1 more thing Bush did wrong. yep - i said it. there are others i've pointed out before - search if you wanna know. they're on the 'net for all to see.
from your link - "TARP was supported by Obama as a candidate and continued by the Obama Administration. Early in the Obama Administration, around the time the AIG bonus scandal broke, there was a sense that TARP may be terminated and that a new program for insolvent banks would be put in place. But, of course, that didnít happen. In fact, Obama threatened to veto any attempt by Congress to restrict the dispersal of additional TARP funds."
so obviously Obama likes giving the bank $$ with no strings attached. as much as he says they are bad....
You're "bad"...!?! That's it?

People like you are directly RESPONSIBLE for that asshole commie sitting in the oval office and all you can say "oops, my bad".

Thanks for nothing dick.

The joke is on you idiots though, you're the ones who didn't see it coming and are to blame for what's going to be because it's going to effect you imbeciles too.

<quoted text>Apparently you missed the part where GW used 1/2 of the TARP and left the other half for OBAMA to do with as he saw fit???? Yeah, continue to run your cowardly little mouth about the Republicans and ignore the Democrats raping you. You are a tool!
You're one fat mixed up bitch aren't you?

Congress approved half of the $700 billion bill to be used in 2008. The remaining $350 billion was never used. The Obama Administration had no involvement in how or where the money was given to. The $350 Billion used was authorized by Congress and approved when GWB and his Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson were in office and was given mostly to bailout banks and Wall Street when the economy collapsed under Bush's watch.(Source: Treasury Dept.)

Just plug your pie hole Really. Once again you opened it and nothing sensible or accurate came out. This happens with you all the time. You should know by now to keep your yap shut.

http://money.cnn.com/2009/01/1 2/news/bush.tarp/index.htm?pos tversion=2009011222 No pictures so you might not be able to understand what the article says, but ask Mommy or Daddy to help you with it, that is if you can get out of their bed long enough to talk. Nice try though little man. Too bad you can't figure out how to just sit down, shut up and buckle up because your ride is about to get a whole lot rougher.

Jason, you are only being correct so much because you have had a infatuation under your other personalities correcting everybody else. BTW, how has the Rainbow Club been treating you lately?
