Now you know these libertards are not going to believe any actual facts. The only facts they believe are the ones made up by MSNBC, Hollywood,and their so called "Messiah". The simple minded are always so easily controlled...rofl
And before either of you libertards start spouting Faux news or however you tards like to put that...I don't watch any of the national media chains...I do my own research. That's what people who are not easily influenced do.
Yeah, Kennett is world renowned for producing brilliant thinkers, just read the Kennett forum sometime...additionally, Kennett is regionally recognized for dispensing vast quantities of Oxycontin to lucky Medicare recipients. Many of it's finest citizens gather around the 807 Bypass center every morning.

So let me get this straight. If someone racks up more debt payments than they have income, as we have here in America, the answer to eliminating the problem is more debt? Next you say that Bush racked up 10T in debt in his 8 years and you agree that Obama has racked up 6T in only 4 1/2 yrs right? Well if the total debt to our country is 16T, did all of the other presidents before Bush have no debt? I wasn't aware of that. Please show me where you got your info that the debt is falling at the fastest rate ever (I won't hold my breath). So you are telling me that the Democrats held 2/3 of the three branches of government and it's the 1/3's fault we were downgraded. Obama and the Democrats have been going around the Constitution since he's been office, but on this 1/3 stopped them. Uh Ok. Who's looking for wars? I believe Obama has been getting us out of the Middle East since he took office yet we still have a very strong presence over there and even went into some more countries (Lybia and Syria) under Obama's watch. Guess that's Bush's fault too. It's obvious that you only get your info from liberal sites and have bought into them 100% without hearing another side. That kind of attitude is one that makes the truth impossible to see even if it's staring you right in the face.
There is no more truth in your synopsis than his, Presidents are only as powerful as Congress allows or in Bushes situation, Rove and Cheney allowed..

LOL believe what you want to "Mr. Independant" and yes everything I told you was true. You are just another niave Republican who could not see the truth if it was told to you by the person who said it. Ignorance is what got us into this mess caused by your impotent party. You can see that it's collapsing on itself. Governors and congressmen and women accross the U.S. in the Republican party are shoving their beliefs with no votes in state legislature passed the vote of the general populous belief and onto a Republican governor's desk to be signed into law, it even happens in the little pathetic town of pocahontas. But that is ok. Whenever enough people get pissed off at all this ignorance your party is trying to pass then they will fall again just like they did in 08'.

Yes, seriously. Surely you don't think Obama spent less than Bush. If he did then we wouldn't be in as much trouble as we are. We wouldn't have 6 trillion more in debt in just 4 1/2 years when Bush only added around 2.5 trillion in 8 years. We wouldn't have gotten a credit downgrade for the first time in our history and Obama owns that 100%. I also keep hearing that the deficit always went up under Republican rule. I looked at several sites and that appears to not be the case. TIFWIW but this is what I found. Here are the years that I found sites that listed a surplus for our federal spending. The letters out beside each year set are in this order, party of president, party of senate, party of house.
1913-1914 D,D,D 3.0 million surplus
1919-1920 D,R,R 1.4 billion surplus
1920-1921 D/R,R,R 1.9 billion surplus
1921-1922 R,R,R 1.0 billion surplus
1922-1923 R,R,R 613 million surplus
1923-1924 R,R,R 1.1 billion surplus
1924-1925 R,R,R 734 million surplus
1925-1926 R,R,R 872 million surplus
1926-1927 R,R,R 1.1 billion surplus
1927-1928 R,R,R 907 million surplus
1928-1929 R,R,R 673 million surplus
1929-1930 R,R,R 745 million surplus
1946-1947 D,D/R,D/R 11.1 billion surplus
1947-1948 D,R,R 5.9 billion surplus
1950-1951 D,D,D 2.1 billion surplus
1955-1956 R,D,D 1.6 billion surplus
1956-1957 R,D,D 2.2 billion surplus
The closest we have come since was in 1999-2000 when Clinton was president and we had a 17 billion deficit and the Republicans held both houses. So here is the final tally: Surpluses when Democrats hold a majority of the three branches of government- 5 years. Surpluses when Republicans hold a majority of the three branches of governmet- 12 years. It boils down to this. Both parties have had fiscally conservative leaders in the past. The Republican message and platform is the best for our country financially as shown by the surpluses particularly when Republicans hold all three branches and can operate unimpeded. Since there have been a total of only 17 surplus years in the past 103 years, neither party's actions deserve much praise especially here in the last last 56 years which was the last time America enjoyed a surplus. Take it or leave it but it's my thought that we need to wipe the slate clean in Washington and vote some new blood in office beginning with our first opportunity in November of 2014.
Rather odd that you would point to a period in American History when the Country was booming excepting the GD of course. Seems strange though that Republicans and their far reaching vision allowed that to happen...since they controlled the whole kitty leading up to the Crash.

Thank you for proving my point

I live in Piggott einstein, thus why I am posting on a Piggott forum. But, here, I'll throw your retarded ass a bone.

This forum tracks your town off of your IP address unless you sign up and actually list your hometown. Depending where you live in Piggott and which provider you use will depend which IP address you are assigned. Since Newwave happens to be a Missouri based cable provider most IP addresses assigned to Piggott customers have a Missouri location...IE: Campbell, Kennett, and etc.

But by all means, please do call MSNBC and get their opinion on this matter to see if I am correct...rofl

And so will your party...trust me.

People like me are absolutely fed up with both of your parties. Both parties are nothing more than a bunch of ignorant third grade tattle tales that love to jump on whatever bandwagon happens to be popular at the time.

The day is coming when we will see the death of both the democrat and republican parties and the way will be clear for the independents.

If you think for one minute that anyone believes your parties bullshit either then maybe you need to remember what happened in 2010. People in this country are sick of both of your ignorant asses, and both of you are responsible for what has happened to this great country...end of story!!!!

"end of story"

I do not think so, you brought up 2010, your ignorance of what did happen in 2010 goes against most theories you put forth in your post.


"Republican State Leadership Committee admitted to targeting state legislature races with the intention of drawing new district lines in order to gain a House majority. "The rationale was straightforward," the organization wrote. "Controlling the redistricting process in these states would have the greatest impact on determining how both state legislative and congressional district boundaries would be drawn."

Guess what happen in 2012, SURPRISE, Democrat candidates won more votes than their Republican counter parts, but yet, Republicans picked up more seats.

Hell yes, its the 1/3's fault we were downgraded.

How many times do you have to be told,'spending bills' come from the House?

WHO did not pass a bill on time to avoid a down grade?

How do you think that could happen.

Being independents have no power unless they attached their vote to one of the major parties. If one major party implodes', how will the independents over come the existing party?

How could it happen? Because people have the right to vote for anyone they see fit as long as they are on the ballot. Don't have to belong to a political party to get on a ballot. And please don't bring up Perot or Paul...No one in their right mind would have voted for either of those tards anyway.

wrong again

most people did exactly what I did in 2010, and went to the polling stations and voted for anything but a democrat because of the blantent arrogance they spewed forth ramming that craptastic healthcare bill down our throats without even reading it first!!! And yes, that was Pelosi's exact words...do I need to go find the video proof for you of her saying to pass the bill then read it?

Democrat arrogance is what people are getting sick and tired of. The democratic party has changed drastically within the last 50 years. It used to be a party for the people, for the poor, for the working class...now it is nothing more than a sick joke performing one scandal after another right in front of the publics eyes and trying to cover it up with the ruse of national media, hollywood, and slight of hand. And although that may very well work on simpletons, more and more people are waking up. Trust me, the GOP can only be their worst enemy for so long before the attention goes right back square on your party. Just hope that isn't in 14, or 16, or you'll see a repeat of 10.

By saying that spending bills come from the House you are saying that no other branch of government has any say so in the fate of spending bills? Surely you are not going there are you?

As for the downgrade, you are saying that we weren't in trouble before the House had the opportunity to pass the spending bill? That the downgrade was the sole result of the inactivity of the House and not our spending habits in the years prior to the downgrade? Primarily the actions of the former House leader Nancy Pelosi when our spending was out of control (not that it's in control now because it isn't)? I don't like him but under John Boehner spending levels have come down from the all time u.s. high under Pelosi. It's odd that when Pelosi spent the most money in a two year span in American history, it was Bush's fault for putting us in a hole that could only be climbed out of by massive spending. This must be an anomaly because everyone else that tries that approach ends up losing everything. Enter in John Boehner. Spending levels come down and all of a sudden Obama's plan is coming to fruition and the debt levels are in a free fall.
Complete hypocrisy.

In 2010 the independent vote swung to the right and did just what you said, they went to the ballot box and voted with emotion over logic.

Look what happen, the Republicans gerrymandered their way to a majority in the house and now look what you independents put into office, a Congress with the lowest public approval rating ever, and passed less bills than any Congress in history.

BTW- if you will notice the polls are looking pretty bad for 2016 as far as Republicans are concerned, 2014 we will see if their gerrymandering can save their ass from a 8% public approval rating.
