Deal with it, pimp.
Well it's apparent what they posted was pretty accurate. When a progressive lib starts name calling and gives NOTHING to disprove any of what they are arguing, you know you got it right!!!
Wait, you forgot to call them a racist! Slippin a bit are we??? We will wait for your response where you plan to disprove ANY of what was posted.

Seems the Teabagger Koch love communism and socialism but only if they can profit.
You didn’t hear this on Fox News or the Drudge Report, but on October 10 Venezuela seized and nationalized a massive fertilizer plant part-owned by Koch Industries. The media silence is a bit puzzling. You’d think that the seizure of property belonging to America’s second-largest private company, owned by one of the most powerful families in the country and the bankrollers of today’s libertarian/Tea Party revolution—the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch–would be considered newsworthy. But no, even though their Venezuela plant was nationalized a whole three months ago, other than a handful of short business-wire dispatches, this has yet to make the news. Even Koch Industries has been suspiciously silent on the matter.
One reason why the Kochs could be keeping the news under wraps is that the nationalization of the fertilizer plant may appear to be bad news for Charles and David Koch, but here’s the big surprise: the Kochs made hundreds of millions on every end of this deal…and even more surprising, bond markets cheered the nationalization. In other words, the free markets championed by the Kochs gave a big thumbs-down to Kochs’ negative influence on the value of the business, while at the same time, the free-market Kochs earned huge windfalls doing business with socialists. No wonder this story hasn’t made the rounds.
Poor teabagger.
Post links. I need to read more about the devious Kock Bros.

REMEMBERING the past is critically important, I agree. But LIVING in it is usually futile and often dangerous.

If you understood the word "reason" you'd know that you just posted an argumentam ad hominem, an argument 'against the man.' The fact that I'm (supposedly) a "progressive lib" neither makes my arguments better or worse.

Nor are you in a position to demand anything of me, fool. Get lost.

What do you call it when your argument includes the assertion that anyone who has an "assault" rifle is a potential homicidal maniac?

I don't think there is much the President can
say to please the American Taliban and its
radical faction, the American Al-Qaida.
Regardless of what he says, they're going to go
on doing as much damage to America and to the
American people as possible, just as they have
been doing for the last four years. Our GOP
Taliban will continue sabotaging government as
long as there is an African-American Democrat
in the White House.

Too bad a bunch of these Republican terrorists
can't be stood up against a wall somewhere.

You do not have to live in it. You do have to remember it in order to not make the same mistakes as before.

Follow the time line after the crash of 1929. What the Fed and government are doing right now is exactly what they did in the 1930's. Only difference is they have not confiscated everyone gold like FDR did.

So after the crash of 1929 and the depression, we got currency wars which lead to trade wars and eventually world war.

The exact same thing is happening now. After the crash of 2008, the Fed and government had this brilliant plan to dump cheap money into the system to devalue the currency. As reported by CNBC the other day, there is a currency war going on. The head of the Bank of England, the Finance Minister in Japan and Brazil, the head of the ECB all say there is a currency war going on.

And what happens in a currency war? Countries start devaluing their currency by flooding the systems with cheap money in order to increase their exports. With cheaper exports on a global scale between countries, that leads to trade tensions and eventually a trade war. I would argue this has already started.

The final outcome to all of this? World War. Exactly what happened prior to WW2 is happening again. In the exact same setting. And nobody is paying attention to it.

I have always followed the principle, learn from one's mistakes. And when knowing history and how specific events played out, we have not learned from our mistakes and the we are following the exact same path.

And everyone can easily interrupt that as the usual way a progressive lib admits they can't prove what was being said about Obama as false. It's easy to say someone is lying about Obama, of course it's quit another to PROVE they lied about him. I can understand your frustration, Obama and his administration cannot be easy to defend, they seem to try to make it harder even for the likes of you everyday!!!

Obviously and stupidly false, given the number of things I've criticized him for.

I suppose that confused you, since to you everyone's either Dem or Rep, Lib or Con. Complex thought isn't, er, your strong suit...:)

...EDITED....
Not saying we couldn't have world war now, but I'd question your timeline of crash-depression-currency conflicts-world war. No doubt that was part of the problem, but currency/trade conflicts don't necessarily lead to wars anymore than wars always arise out of currency/trade conflicts.
