I’m about fed up with the Democrats Lies in who destroyed the Economy. Bacon your own party didn’t tell the TRUTH, so much for CNN Fact Check!!! It’s very SIMPLE the ONLY thing to balance cheap foreign wages from out waging the U.S. was our U.S. Import tax/Tariff. This kept U.S. jobs safe from other countries overtaking our U.S. manufacturing in cheap foreign labor. Its NO secret that China has been killing our economy. Clinton personally spearhead this and HIS name is on that Document that KILLED the U.S. Economy and this will last for Decades to come, NO IF AND OR BUTTS!!! Democrats set the U.S back 75 years in its industrial strength. FYI> That BILL could not be reversed during Bush years, or for that matter forever,, the trade act was Permanent, to change that bill, its called, National Protectionism, and that’s what starts WARS…
You SIGN it YOU own it, Clinton also was the one who signed NAFTA, he didn’t learn from that several years later
http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/na...
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is signed into law by President Bill Clinton. Clinton said he hoped the agreement would encourage other nations to work toward a broader world-trade pact.
NAFTA, a trade pact between the United States, Canada, and Mexico, eliminated virtually all tariffs and trade restrictions between the three nations.
Clinton personally Spearheaded China trade bill.
http://articles.latimes.com/2000/mar/09/news/...
WASHINGTON — President Clinton launched one of the most important legislative battles of his presidency Wednesday, sending Congress a long-awaited bill that would permanently throw open China's huge and rapidly expanding trade relationship with the United States. In a speech designed to kick off what promises to be a contentious, closely fought debate in Congress, Clinton sketched out the high stakes of the choice at hand and pledged to do everything he can to secure passage. Critics, however, insist that approval of the legislation could be disastrous, opening the door to a huge outflow of U.S. jobs, giving a de facto green light to China's repressive human rights practices and rewarding Beijing's aggressive rhetoric concerning such issues as Taiwan.
Seen purely in these terms, advocates insist, approval is the political equivalent of a no-brainer: The United States will enjoy major openings into a huge and growing market of 1.3 billion people in return for ending the practice of extending China's normal trade status one year at a time, a congressional ritual for much of the last decade.
Clinton (The President.) Good afternoon. This year we face major challenges and opportunities in our relationship with China, in foreign and security policy, economic policy and trade. All those issues come together in one opportunity for the American people: what we stand to gain when China enters the World Trade Organization.
But to lock in our benefits, we first must grant China permanent normal trade relations status. To get this done, I am directing John Podesta, my Chief of Staff, my international economic Cabinet members, my Policy Council coordinators to launch an all-out effort. Each member of this team has a distinctive role to play. I'm asking them to do everything they can to accomplish the task..
I think the best part of you ran down your mamma's leg LMAO!

Cheney's Halliburton Made $39.5 Billion on Iraq War
he accounting of the financial cost of the nearly decade-long Iraq War will go on for years, but a recent analysis has shed light on the companies that made money off the war by providing support services as the privatization of what were former U.S. military operations rose to unprecedented levels.

Private or publicly listed firms received at least $138 billion of U.S. taxpayer money for government contracts for services that included providing private security, building infrastructure and feeding the troops.

Ten contractors received 52 percent of the funds, according to an analysis by the Financial Times that was published Tuesday.

The No. 1 recipient?

Houston-based energy-focused engineering and construction firm KBR, Inc.(NYSE:KBR), which was spun off from its parent, oilfield services provider Halliburton Co.(NYSE:HAL), in 2007.

The company was given $39.5 billion in Iraq-related contracts over the past decade, with many of the deals given without any bidding from competing firms, such as a $568-million contract renewal in 2010 to provide housing, meals, water and bathroom services to soldiers, a deal that led to a Justice Department lawsuit over alleged kickbacks, as reported by Bloomberg.

Who were Nos. 2 and 3?

You may recall news stories from 2009 revealing that KBR, this profitable offshoot from Halliburton, was the contractor responsible for faulty wiring which resulted in the deaths by electrocution of 16 U.S. Soldiers in Iraq. They reportedly had cut corners and hired inadequately trained electricians to wire the Soldiers' bathrooms, and tragedy ensued. But they were mighty profitable contractors, according to this article. One wonders how any of them can sleep nights.

How much suffering is this actually causing you?
or are you a member of the Tea Party and our efforts to neutralize your bunk is starting to pay off?
I think Topix pays that dude TaxNoMore (justthefacts) somehow anyway...thats been my theory for some time now. He's been posting here for years, day night I would say 40000 of the 50000 are from him or one of his aliases.
Who would do this without compensation?
It is my contention that one would have to be be a extreme loser to do something like this
without being reimbursed. He's like a scrolling billboard for Jimmy Dmints "Club for Growth"

yes, yes only a blunt headed idiot like him would do this with or without pay...thewres not to many people out there that dedicated to the rediculous nonsense to dedicate thier lives to posting the crap on here.....
So, my theory is that Jimmy DMint is paying him probably a little less than minimum wage (remember they are against minumum wage) So its against their policy to pay minimum wage.
I hope ive helped you to understand this thread now. If it continues to bother you though I would definately consider seeking professional help because you are blowing this way out of proportion and it may be an indication of other more serious psychological problems.

When you support an admitted international war criminal who also destroyed the greatest economy in the history of man, your complaints about these things are simply chalked up to lunacy by the majority of Americans.

In the 1980s, groups such as the activists at ACORN began pushing charges of "redlining" - claims that banks discriminated against minorities in mortgage lending.

In 1989, sympathetic members of Congress got the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act amended to force banks to collect racial data on mortgage applicants;

this allowed various studies to be ginned up that seemed to validate the original accusation.

In fact, minority mortgage applications were rejected more frequently than other applications - but the overwhelming reason wasn't racial discrimination, but simply that minorities tend to have weaker finances.

Yet a "landmark" 1992 study from the Boston Fed concluded that mortgage-lending discrimination was systemic.

That study was tremendously flawed - a colleague and I later showed that the data it had used contained thousands of egregious typos, such as loans with negative interest rates.

Our study found no evidence of discrimination.

Yet the political agenda triumphed - with the president of the Boston Fed saying no new studies were needed, and the US comptroller of the currency seconding the motion.

No sooner had the ink dried on its discrimination study than the
Boston Fed, clearly speaking for the entire Fed, produced a manual for mortgage lenders stating that:

"discrimination may be observed when a lender's underwriting policies contain arbitrary or outdated criteria that effectively disqualify many urban or lower-income minority applicants."

Some of these "outdated" criteria included the size of the mortgage payment relative to income,

credit history,

savings history and income verification.

Instead, the Boston Fed ruled that participation in a credit-counseling program should be taken as evidence of an applicant's ability to manage debt.

Sound crazy?

You bet.

Those "outdated" standards existed to limit defaults.

But bank regulators required the loosened underwriting standards, with approval by politicians and the chattering class.

A 1995 strengthening of the Community Reinvestment Act required banks to find ways to provide mortgages to their poorer communities.

It also let community activists intervene at yearly bank reviews, shaking the banks down for large pots of money.

Banks that got poor reviews were punished; some saw their merger plans frustrated; others faced direct legal challenges by the Justice Department.
