I get so tired of educating those who refuse to acknowledge the truth.

For the last time, the Bush Tax cuts resulted in 54 straight months of economic growth. The recession occurred after Democrats gained control of Congress and began wildly borrowing and spending trillions of dollars and implementing their bone-headed and supremely irresponsible fiscal policy.

The economic numbers don't lie. Take a look for yourself:
http://forecast-chart.com/chart-gdp-rate.html

The economy grew every single quarter until Q4 of 2008. That's solid continual economic growth that directly resulted from the Bush Tax Cuts.

The economy didn't take a shit until a year and a half after Democrats took over Congress and their socialist policies were in place.

Of course the demorat authored mortgage disaster didn't help either.

Iraq calls on Fallujah residents to expel al-Qaida
http://www.dailytribune.com/general-news/2014...
Washington has ruled out sending in American troops but recently delivered dozens of Hellfire missiles to help bolster Iraqi forces.

Tehran signaled Monday that it is willing to follow suit, saying it is ready to help Iraq battle al-Qaida "terrorists" by sending military equipment and advisers should Baghdad ask for it.

Elk Grove Village, IL

You may not know, but they got the name from a small herd of elk kept in a grove at the eastern edge of the Busse Woods forest preserve for which the grove is named. Elk are not native to the area but were brought from Montana by an early resident, Busse, in the 1920s.

Isn't that cool?

I'm defending the democrats' plan for America versus the plan the losing republican side of the the aisle that voters rejected. Like most Americans, I am frustrated. So, I'm going to stick with my support of dems and rejection of pubs very unhelpful and discriminatory corporate supportive and supported programs. You can suit yourself, idiot.

Today I am being followed around by ads for Midnight Oil Cosmetics, Duck Dynasty products and images of bodybuilders trying to sell me dietary supplements (okay, I don't mind the last one so much).
The point is that while topix is simply ate up with too many advertisements, google is out of control and paying way too much attention to our surfing habits.
Stay off the internet, problem solved. Of course being a clueless liberal, you expect everything for free.

The Economic Consequences of Mr. Bush
http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2...
When we look back someday at the catastrophe that was the Bush administration, we will think of many things: the tragedy of the Iraq war, the shame of Guantánamo and Abu Ghraib, the erosion of civil liberties. The damage done to the American economy does not make front-page headlines every day, but the repercussions will be felt beyond the lifetime of anyone reading this page.

Economic Downturn and Legacy of Bush Policies Continue to Drive Large Deficits
Economic Recovery Measures, Financial Rescues Have Only Temporary Impact

http://www.cbpp.org/cms/...

PDF of this report (6pp.)

By Kathy Ruffing and Joel Friedman

Updated February 28, 2013


Federal deficits and debt have been sharply higher under President Obama, but the evidence continues to show that the Great Recession, President Bush’s tax cuts, and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq explain most of the deficits that have occurred on Obama’s watch — based on the latest Congressional Budget Office projections as well as legislation enacted since we last issued this analysis of what lies behind current deficits and debt.

Though some lawmakers and pundits continue to blame record deficits on the President’s policies in general — and his actions to boost the economy and stabilize the financial system in particular — these policies increase budget deficits only briefly; they will have no significant impact on the long-term problem of large deficits and rising debt.

The deficit for fiscal year 2009 — which began almost four months before President Obama took office — was $1.4 trillion and, at 10 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), marked the largest deficit relative to the economy since the end of World War II. Annual deficits in 2010 through 2012, while slightly lower, each topped $1 trillion. If current policies remain in place, deficits are expected to range between $600 billion and $900 billion for the rest of this decade, reaching a low around 2015 before climbing again.(cont.)

You're very welcome, POT.

This is a fact, if you want to blame someone blame them all , this didn't happen over night this has been a deteriorating country for the last 100 years, dirty politicians who steal from the American people, the bushes, the Clinton's , the Kennedy's , the Regans, they are all to blame, some more than others. Most voters vote not to help their country and for what is right or wrong but for lining their own pockets and what benefits them for the next four year term! Your all to blame if you voted for them! This is a pathetic country we now live in, ran by the people for the people , that is literally now days. What ever happened to the moral foundations this country first started on? Evil rules these lands now, it's never going to change now, it's to late . Blacks were so happy to have a black president , why? I'll tell you, it was because they thought he was going to somehow make them rich or give them all whatever it was they wanted, so who was the majority vote? Who's ignorance has once again outdone itself? If you don't know anything about your country or politics then don't fn vote for that person just because of his skin color or his gender or whatever! The day we vote for a woman to run our country will be the end of this country as we know it! Believe that! I'm not a bigot nor prejudice, just stating the facts and f*** political correctness you bunch of pansies quit your whining!! Some of you ARE the REASON this country is in the gutter! Collect your gov benefits and never contribute to society yet you whine about who's president and what you aren't getting! Really?? There's many many jobs out there even if you have to swallow your pride and work at mcdonalds !!! Your the problem so don't bitc*!!!!!!
JFK, the last liberal untouched by the drug fueled fantasies of the 60's:

"This administration pledged itself last summer to an across-the-board, top-to-bottom cut in personal and corporate income taxes to be enacted and become effective in 1963. I am not talking about a quickie or a temporary tax cut which would be more appropriate if a recession were imminent. Nor am I talking about giving the economy a mere shot in the arm to ease some temporary complaint. The federal government's most useful role is not to rush into a program of excessive increases in public expenditures, but to expand the incentives and opportunities of private expenditures.

When consumers purchase more goods, plants use more of their capacity, men are hired instead of laid off, investment increases, and profits are high. Corporate tax rates must also be cut to increase incentives and the availability of investment capital. The government has already taken major steps this year to reduce business tax liability and to stimulate the modernization, replacement, and expansion of our productive plant and equipment."
