What is this grotesque’ creature…. dust

Your statment is a total lie, I guess you forget In 1944, Byrd wrote to segregationist Mississippi Senator Theodore G. Bilbo:

I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side ... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.

Strom Thurmond supported racial segregation throughout much of his career. He wrote the first version of the Southern Manifesto, announcing southern disagreement with and resistance to implementation of school desegregation following the US Supreme Court decision in Brown v.

Well NRH, I guess we should have done it the Romney way and let all the US auto makers go down the drain. Oh by the way which one of the little rice burners do you drive, and I'll bet everything you own comes from the Orient.
I don't know about the "romney way", but propping up a private corp with bad business practices using MY tax dollars just seems like a bad idea.
And every vehicle I own is made in the USA. A dodge, a Chevy and a Toyota (made in California).
"Rice burner"? That's a bit racist don't you think?

The figure of 4.5 million jobs is accurate if you look at the most favorable period and category for the administration. But overall, there are still fewer people working now than when Obama took office at the height of the recession."

His motives are clear. Hint: It's a case of family

Rice burner is a common term for autos built in the Orient. Gook, Kraut, and Rag Head; those are racist terms, and not terms that I use. But back to the automotive bailouts; they have all been paid back. Were they a risk? Yes. Was it worth the risk? Damn right it was, with out that risk we would have lost another industry, and you would have never bought another Jeep, Chevy, Ford or Dodge. Just think another foriegn product to hold over our head. Obama 2016 bet that one is almost as informative as Farenhieght 911; and if you are going to make your decisions based on movies like those two, you are way the hell past pathetic.

Fiscal Year{ FY } in politics is from October to September. Bush presented Obama with a 9% constricting economy. Bush reieceved a 5.6 Trillion surplus to budget debt from Clinton. So lets take that and subtract what Bush debts were, that he handed over to Obama. Surplus of $5.6 Trillion plus all debts incurred since October 2008 to January 2009 and we come with a 5.6% reduction in debt to GDP. In 3.3 years Obama is at 15.1% to debt of GDP, from a 20.7% increase to debt by Bush and going rapidly down into the abyss.
Stimulus plan to revitalize the middle class produced a beneficial return on investment. We have seen an impressive recovery in the equity markets from Bush’s stock markets lost of 14 years of gains. Markets had retraced the lows back to 1996 in less than 17 months. Greatest lost ,in market value, in our Nations history. Obama’s actions helped restore equity markets post a gain of 105% through April of 2011. During Obama’s first 27 months in office.
Making up most of the losses with gains to the DOW of 17.2%, S&P 500 25.3% and the NASDAQ 31.7%. Compare this to say Reagan first 3.3 years in office Reagan’s gains to ; DOW 6.86%, S&P 500 6.16%, NASDAQ 7.02%. Obama has surpassed most of his predecessors, including Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan!
Stimulus also stopped the decline in corporate profits that started under George W. Bush. Stimulus helped produce an increase of 22% per year in the first two years.
Obama has had the slowest growth in spending of any President in the past 60 years: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...

I dont think that GM (Govt Motors) has paid back their loans, and dont think they ever will. The taxpayer is on the hook to "forgive" the loans and it is nothing more than a corporate giveaway, endorsed by the UAW to save their outragous pension and health care perks under Obamacare. They are pushing it as a way to "save the working man", but is nothing more than special intersts screwing everyone else in a bid to save their own.
And when did I mention either movie?

The issue is all about economics! Lets see how the parties measure up.
Pedro Santa-Clara
Nova School of Business and Economics; National Bureau of Economic Research
(NBER); Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR)
Rossen I. Valkanov
University of California, San Diego (UCSD)- Rady School of Management

Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov Concurred that the democrats fared better than the republicans by a wide margin. Democrats had consistent above average returns. Most Republicans had lower than average returns and greater volatility.
Santa Clara and Valkanov attribute the difference in returns to the stock markets being systematically and positively surprised to discover that democratic polices in a 80 year time frame of quantifiable data, are the best economic stewards for the nation. Differences are substantial.
Democrats had a respectable average return of 9.6% as when compared to republicans 0.58% average returns. If an employee’s 401[K] plan was fully invested in stocks at a value of $100,000, at the beginning of the employee’s 40 years of labor, apply this to both parties for returns.
Republicans Nest egg would have accumulated $224,375.
Democrates Nest Egg would have accumulated $ 3,912,210.
Now at $5,000, initial nest egg investment.
Republicans Nest Egg would have accumulated $126,027.
Democrats Nest Egg would have accumulated $1,985,526.
‘The Presidential puzzle; Political Cycles and the stock market” Accessed December 14 2011, the journal of finance, Vol.LVIII, no.5October 2003
In addition; http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state... Pulitzer Prize Awarded site
Which supports Debt To GDP figures. Last 4 years of Bush attributed 20.7% to debt to GDP. Obama of the 3 years has a Debt to GDP of 15.1%. A reduction to debt of 5.6% in spite of all the sabotaging efforts’ of the republicans.{ Hostage/Ransom} scenarios.
Republican’s present financial planning is similar to Herbert Hoover/ Bush…?

Cmon Troll, I am still waiting for your evidence of my supposed racism, sexism and bigotted opinions. Its not true and you know it. Its just another pathetic attempt by you to smear anyone who disagrees with you.'You', on the other hand are nothing more than a collection of self-rightous, elitest, lefty snobs who will use any means neccesary to try and get your little tin god re-elected. You despise anyone who you deem to be beneath you, pretty much anyone in "flyover country", which are your own words. So you represent the "Party of Inclusion", the "Party of Open Minded People"?
You and the rest of the trolls that make up "OregonSux" are a bunch of hate filled mindless robots who are only capable of repeating what your minders tell you to think and say, and will attempt to destroy anyone who disagrees.

Republicans see us on the Brink as democrat see opportunity.
Could this explain why such a diverse view of the same equation? Republicans see a dwindling ability to extract social welfare payments from the bottom of the Pyramid scheme they have designed. Democrats’ see opportunity for our society by cutting welfare payments to the elitist and returning the Pyramid back to its proper position.
Cronyism Welfare…. Fair Game?
It’s one thing to win in a fair game. Quite another when rules of game are written in such a manner enhancing one’s prospects of winning. Imagine now you can choose the referee’s. Regulatory agencies such as Federal Communications {FCC} telecom. Exchange Commission {SEC} securities. Banking have their Federal Reserves. Political influence to get people appointed to the regulatory agencies who are beneficial to the politician’s desires.
Regulatory capture is known as the use of personnel that are associated within the sector that they are to regulate. Another capture is obtained by those they regulate.{cognitive capture} which is more aligned as a sociological phenomenon. Greenspan and Geithner did not actually work for a bank before being appointed to the Federal Reserve, yet there was a natural affinity. A mindset that hey could be identified with banker’s mindset. In spite of the chaos banker’s impressed upon our society, there was no stringent conditions imposed upon them with the bail out.
Banker’ hired lobbyist to restrain any restrictive regulation to be imposed upon them. Expenditures were high enough to have each political representative, to be lobbied to the tune of $2.5 million! Banker’s seek to appoint those individuals that have been “captured”. Remaining candidates to be vetoed.
Monopolies whether government granted or “sanctioned through inadequate enforcement, have built fortunes of many of the wealthiest people. They merely have the government hand over the wealth.
Gifts are hidden in provisions of legislation. Derivative market is above reproach that no regulator can hold them accountable.“Seniority” infused within their infrastructures’ of laws, makes any losses paid first, before workers, creditors and suppliers get to receive any payments. Even if it were to go into bankruptcy. A major contributor to the 2008-2009 disaster. AIG gets $150 Billion from bailout in such a scenario.
Another way banker’s protect themselves is to have easy access to unlimited funds from the Federal Reserve at near zero interest rates. Banks can then lend the money back to the government or a foreign government.
