It would give the lunatic fringe a whole new chance to expound on their doom and gloom theories. Everyone should know they'll never admit to how many times their gawd like Reagan kicked this can down the road!
As esteemed as his memory build's with time....Seem President Reagan might have been the creator of a lot of trends that proved harmfull to the country....Like what i had previously mentioned about Truman and Ho Chi Minh....

No he doesn't. He doesn't leave out the possibility for redemption but doesn't hold out much hope for it unless we really wake up and make changes really soon.

There is no historical evidence to say he (Reagan) didn't.

I had posted a very long time ago about the interview I saw with Oliver Stone where he mentioned he was stunned with the public reaction to Gordon Gekko in his movie Wall Street. Saying he made Gekko the "bad guy" and thought the line "greed is good, greed works", would raise the ire of the American public. That the public responded with such favor to it was beyond what he could have imagined.

But then it was during the Reagan years Wall Street (the movie) came out. The movie 1987 and Reagan's term(s)1981-1987.

Yes I have heard you mention it several times.

Perhaps you would be interested in what's called the Matthew Effect. If you aren't already aware of it. Taken from the Apostle Matthew; "The term Matthew effect was coined by the Columbia University soci­ologist Robert K. Merton (1968a) to refer to the commonly observed tendency, noted above, for initial advantages to accumulate through time."
"Matthew 13:12  For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath."

Though as it's pointed out in the link that is not meant to be the nature of things in the material world. It points toward spiritual awareness.

Sorry for the redundancy if you are already aware of it. Which I would have no doubt you would be.

I've got it all figured out. Raise the debt ceiling so we can piss more money that we don't have away, and then blame the people that pay taxes for not paying enough.

Yupper...the progessive way of doing things. And if blaming the President who served just before you doesn't work, blame one who served long before you. However, the number 1 rule for progressives? NOT MY FAULT. I WAS LEFT WITH A MESS AND NOW I HAVE TO MAKE THAT MESS WORSE!

And you have NEVER posted ANYTHING BUT your opinion and expected to have them considered fact.
It makes no difference to you that what I quoted from that "blog" I backed up with the actual Supreme Court ruling. That by the way proved the "blogger" was right in what he said.
Maybe you should pull you head out of your .... and realize you have NOTHING but your opinion. You can't even connect dots when they placed right in front of you.
Just because you call links that are posted lies and wrong because you don't agree with them makes them any less of a fact.

You quote a blog because it suits your purpose. You also post that other links are wrong and their data is incorrect - even though it's straight from the source.

I'm the one with nothing but my opinion?! LMAO!! Pot meet Kettle. You wouldn't recognize the truth if it walked up and bitch slapped you, especially when it doesn't suit your purpose.

And I thought you weren't going to respond to me anymore? You mean you were *gasp* lying?!
