You have already stipulated the limits of your abilities to comprehend what you are reading.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false. Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Reagan and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Everything you said is worthless BS, unless the target understands it.

Which is worse - failing to understand complex, over-stated BS or, simplified, to-the-point thought which requires no study?

Intelligence does not always beat common sense. Actually, common sense is far more valuable, as life skills, than meaningless crap you read in books that authors wrote just to get a paycheck.

Think about that, brainiac.

Truth is you can’t handle the truth !
Proof of republicans catastrophic false leadership is in the pudding.
Pentagon now asking $450 Million! To maintain Guantanamo Bay. May 14th Pentagon request $79 Million for detention,$20.5 Million for military Commission; Nearly double from a year ago of $12.6 Million, Additionally requesting $40 Million for fiber optic cables,$99 Million for operations and Maintenance and $200 Million for upgrades for their “temporary facilities”.? Estimating construction time will take another 10 years. All this for 166 prisoners that after over a decade of not even charging the suspects.
Guantanamo has become a black eye for our nation. Military administrators are overboard with their expenses and inefficiencies to process their prisoners to justice.
International Allies view this in disfavorable illuminating light of our “Human Rights Violations” Hypocrisy. Terrorist use this failure for our “Truth and Justice self proclaimed ideology to recruit additional terrorist. Consider those prisoners as being educated by Guantanamo archaic “Dungeons and Dragons” strategies. Those released will serve the terrorist once again with far more vigor.
$ 450 Million would serve this Nation more productively by increasing securities in our embassies that are in harms way. Something republicans have continuously denied to fund. Just as they deny the closing of Guantanamo Bay. Presently they have additional suspects that the military wants to incarcerate to Guantanamo Bay from the Libya and Benghazi affaires.
Military Justice has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt their inefficiency in such matters. No more funds to Guantanamo Bay detention center and allow this black eye to heal itself. Pentagon can draw on the sequested budget they have been assigned to or let the “Concentration Camp” fade away.

As long as Rick Perry is in the governor's mansion, the Texas education system will continue to decline. The voucher system is ruining public schools.

Why don't you get your head out of Obamas rectal area and go read some news. It will be much more informative than the regurgitated crap that
you post on a daily basis.

When Obummer is finally impeached for his Chicago style politics, you will be out of a job windbag. May I suggest buying lots of bags to hold
all of the manure that you spread around. You should be able to make
a killing in the fertilizer market.

The NEA and political correctness has already turned public schools into indoctrination center hellholes. We might just as well shut down all the
schools and send the kids to learn how to sign up for welfare and food
stamps.

Yada-yada. Considering it's a democrat in office now, your republican bashing is pointless.

I bet you don't know how to summarize your opinions. Northerners are that way. A whole lot of hot air to keep their end of the conversation.

I know this because I know people from the north. I can get them to talk slower but, can't seem to get them to wrap it up.

What's your point?

I agree with you, about the long-winded-without a-point Bernard.

But, what makes you think I'm as moron? The fact that I'm proud to be a Texan and won't let any imposters claim our fame?

The fact that I'm aware of the imminent perils to my race?

The fact that I know racial purity is important, according to my religion?

Or, because you think I shouldn't be so outspoken about my beliefs?

I rather think you a moron, for flunking class while I'm telling you the truth.
