Now listen here, It's late and I'm tired! You're supposed to melt for O.T., the dumb one!! You'll be eternally enobelized on Venus itself! Think of it, you could be "Goddess divine," who takes in the stupid porch-dog that everyone else just kicks out of the way..do dogs wear old spice? It very well could be the love of the millennium..the only love in the entire universe born solely upon sheer sympathy! I'm telling you..you can do this!! Look, he may be older than you and may look like a Klingon, but those Towncraft suits at pennys are cheap enough! God, don't mess this up!
LMAO! Eternally what??? Enobelized? Is that anything like "in love with"...or situated...WILLARD, don't use those 20 words. You've already told me that I've got a 5 dollar brain. Next thing, you'll be wanting your change and I'm broke, too.:)
There's just one little itsy-bitsy problem...I think OT has a Wife! And I'll betcha that she's not going to give him up, not to me or anybody else...and I'm too old to get in a Cat Fight over a Man, not to mention, too proud! Actually, I was too old for that when I was 20...and too proud!:)

Thanks for the link "Sassy". This mirrors what I posted about, regarding what kind of America our generation is leaving for the next ones, as opposed to the one left to us.
As Reagan was declaring morning in America, he sent us racing to the bottom of the stack. Greed was good....for him and his pals, but not for the country. Republicans want him on Mt. Rushmore....I suspect when the final chapter is finally written on his presidency by historians, they will determine that he didn't have as much to do with the collapse of the Soviet Union as he did with the collapse of the great experiment called The United States of America.

As much as I despise Bush... It is true that Regan actually started this mess. Too bad it has taken years to see the effects.

While President Obama insists the Bush tax cuts caused the recession and record deficits, his own economists say otherwise.

He might want to consult their data for the truth.

Kicking off fiscal cliff negotiations last month, Obama said: "What I'm not going to do is extend Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford and, according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy."

It's all Reagan's fault? Permit me to quote from this dismal dissertation:

Quotations from Chairman Steve Fraser:

"In the mid-1970s, Hugh Carey, then governor of New York, was already noting the hollowing out of his part of America. New York City, after all, was threatening to go bankrupt. "

I did not know that Reagan was president during that time. And all this time I thought that Carter was president from 1976 to 1980, aka the mid-70's.

"Camden, New Jersey, for example, had long been a robust, diversified small industrial city. By the early 1970s, however, its reform mayor Angelo Errichetti was describing it this way: "It looked like the Vietcong had bombed us to get even. The pride of Camden... was now a rat-infested skeleton of yesterday, a visible obscenity of urban decay. The years of neglect, slumlord exploitation, tenant abuse, government bungling, indecisive and short-sighted policy had transformed the city's housing, business, and industrial stock into a ravaged, rat-infested cancer on a sick, old industrial city."

Hmm. Now Reagan was president in the Early 70's?

"Once upon a time, Youngstown, Ohio, was a typical smokestack city, part of the steel belt running through Pennsylvania and Ohio. As with Camden, things there started turning south in the 1970s."

Again, the downturn was well before Reagan, and completely during Carter's time at bat.

"If you were unfortunate enough to live in the small industrial city of Mansfield, Ohio, for the last 40 years, you would have witnessed in microcosm the dystopia of destruction unfolding in similar places everywhere. For a century, workshops there had made a kaleidoscope of goods: stoves, tires, steel, machinery, refrigerators, and cars. Then Mansfield's rust belt started narrowing as one plant after another went shut down: Dominion Electric in 1971, Mansfield Tire and Rubber in 1978, Hoover Plastics in 1980...."

May I remind you which party was in charge of Congress during this time?

When you make an argument such as it all started with Reagan, at least make sure your sources agree with you.

The deterioration of this society goes much deeper than just the economy. The economy WILL come back. Stupid policies by either party may hasten or delay that come back, but they can't stop it.

The real problems have more to do with the breakdown of the mores of society. My generation convinced the old guard that we should be able to vote at age 18, because we were growed up. Today, you're not growed up until you're 26. That's progress?

We are constantly bombarded with an emphasis on education, yet our schools are lucky to graduate 65% of those who start high school. Is this due to crappy teachers? Maybe, but they can't ALL be crappy. Perhaps the problem isn't the teachers, the teaching environment, or the lack of funding. Maybe the problem is that the kids just don't give a crap. Oohhhh. Don't say that!

Marriage today is a joke. Indeed, half of all babies who survive the abortion decision, are born out of wedlock. And we give momma special privileges and benefits for being a single mother.

Obama used the progressive slogan, "Forward". Unfortunately, you can progress forward on a descent.

And that descent started long before Reagan.

But, Reagan could have stopped the beginning decline in it's infancy, when it would have been so easy to do. But instead, he chose to Magnify it and and kick it into high gear, with his "Trickle-down" theory of economics. It's been a "doomsday" scenario for this Nation and the Average American ever since, but a "Gold Rush" for the Wealthy! It has to stop, and be turned around or it will destroy ALL of us!
