Most historians and economists agree that the Depression did not end until the beginning of WWII.
It improved economics because the war created more jobs such as creating weaponry and manufacturing the raw materials to run a war. These new jobs were able to jump start the economy.

You must be outta your mind to believe that Shrub II's immoral elective war with Iraq was to stimulate the economy.

The war with Afghanistan certainly wasn't to stimulate the American economy. It was to strike back at our enemies for 9-11.

The never-served-their-country neo-con's unjustified war with Iraq can be described with many words or phrases, but "stimulate the economy" just isn't one of them. No need for a reference to WWII, as it is inappropriate and intellectually dishonest.

Here are some words and phrases that you may be looking for to describe Shrub II's unjustified war...

Greed
Greed
Greed
To upstage father
To finish the job
Cronyism
Cronyism
Cronyism
To grab wealth at the expense of others
Nation Building
Oil
Oil
Oil
Oil
Oil
Oil
AIPAC
Military transformation

There is no one reason why Shrub II and the coward neocons deceived America into war, but there is one word to describe it all...

STUPIDITY

And to that, I say...NEVER AGAIN!!!

FOUR MORE YEARS!!!!

Also from the Huffington Post because it wouldn't fit in the 4000 character limit for a single post:

The rich took home a greater share of America's income pie from 2009 to 2010 than they did between 2002 and 2007, according to an April analysis from Emmanuel Saez, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley. That means the gap between the rich and the poor was more pronounced under Obama's presidency than under George W. Bush's.
You're flaky in more ways than one!

If you do your part and go get a real job instead of worrying about whether a long character count article from the Huffington Post would fit on this thread, you'd be doing your part to narrow the gap between the rich and poor.

You must do more than search for the requisite three potential employees to put down on your unemployment report. You need to be hitting the pavement and finding that job...like yesterday.

Maybe you can get all your former employees to give you that unemployment insurance that they paid into the system for you. You did say that you consider it your wages.

It sure would beat you getting it back piecemeal, week by unemployed week.

Remember, to get a piece of that pie you spoke of, you must sit down at the table.

Sit down at the table = having a job.

Got it?

That's kinda the point. Huffington Post is far left leaning liberal democrat loving, yet those articles were not very flattering towards Obama, lol, I thought citing into from the Huffington Post would prevent those left-wingers from claiming that the articles were lies coming from conservatives. You know that they would have done that if I selected anything from Fox, even if Fox said the same things as the Huffington Post did. There would be no investigating from them to verify the facts, just as assumption that Fox was lying. Anyway, if a liberal-learning paper like the Huffington post would say all those things, then what are they not saying? It makes me wonder.

This video effectively proves that Trayvon got away (As confirmed by Dee Dee) and doubled back in order to encounter George Zimmerman. The only logical reason Trayvon would have doubled back rather then going home when he had plenty of opportunity is because he wanted to pick a fight. Obvious case of self-defense, any way you look at it. Watch this video, and if anyone still thinks he's guilty afterwards then they are either an idiot or they are being paid by Benjamin Crump and the rest of Team Skittles to lie.

I just got back from the grocery store.

Prices are through the roof.

If anybody doesn't think they're gonna get stuck paying more when there are $5 billion in food assistance going out every month you better think twice.

They say inflation is coming. Ha ha, inflation has always been here.

Those government stats have been cooked.

Prices have risen and risen substantially on everyday items.

Have you noticed?

Dollar store $h!t keeps gets smaller and smaller.

Pretty soon I'm gonna need a magnifying glass to see it.

And the grocery stores are a joke.

$40.00 gets you....hmmmmm....carry it out in a small bag.

No wonder prices have skyrocketed.

$60 billion a year in free food money floating around out there.

That proves one batch of Zimmerman's account and answers are LIES, LIES and more LIES.
I believe George Zimmerman stated that Trayvon was beating him up (factually proven) and then Trayvon saw his gun and went for it. Zimmerman got it first and shot Martin in self-defense. It's an act of a complete idiot to assume victory because trayvon's DNA wasn't on the hilt of the gun. The fact of the matter is that since Zimmerman got a hold of the gun first, so if he did not let go of the grip, there would be no way for Trayvons DNA to get on it, it they fought over it Trayvon's DNA might be on the barrel, but that is a smoother surface then the grip, so there is less chance of skin cells remaining attached to it. It was raining that evening too, so that might have washed away some evidence from the barrel, too, but the important thing to notice is the article only says there was no DNA of Trayvon's on the grip, the barrel is never mentions, nor is there any reference to fingerprints. You are an idiot to make assumptions without all the facts.

There that little word is again. "Fair"

Fair implies the treating of all sides alike, justly and equitably. It's not defined to a black and white method. It's an Alinsky trick.

It won't be long before our children will not be allowed to keep score. That's not fair !!!!!

It's in education already. The are trying to do away with the current unit of measure. The will use words like, Satisfactory,Completed and Proficient. No one gets a zero if they don't turn in an assignment. That is too harsh. It's not fair.

You can't change human nature. Everyone keeps score.

1988: Thousands die in Halabja gas attack
Thousands of people are reported to have been killed and many others injured in a poison gas attack on a Kurdish city in northern Iraq.
Up to 20 aircraft, said to include Iraqi Migs and Mirages, were seen overhead at around 1100 local time in Halabja.

According to experts, the chemicals dropped by the planes may have included mustard gas, the nerve agents sarin, tabun and VX and possibly cyanide.

The attack on Halabja, which is about 150 miles (241km) north-east of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, is the latest in the Iran-Iraq war and follows its occupation by Iranian forces.

Iraq was said to be keen to avenge the fall of Halabja, which is seen as an important centre for Kurdish resistance in their struggle for autonomy.

Define fair !!!! I would bet you read all of Alinsky writings. In your world it's fair half of Americans pay no taxes. That's the definition of "Fair" in your world. Socialism is taking over this country. Good luck trying to pay for it. France thinks it's fair for the rich to pay 75% in taxes. You will be hungry one day. You will starve because you will have no one to feed you.
