Here in the USA, thank you, where my family's lived for over 300 years. None of us have "rolled over and feared our government," British or American, nor have we ever stood silent while other people lie about us or what we believe.
Clear?
Why lie, you stand around while Obama, Holder, Reid, Pelosi and Clinton lie dailey. Such a waste. I bet your ancestors are rolling in their graves.........or urns.

"Why lie" is the question almost every sane poster on this board would love to ask you, au Jimbo.

Of course they'd get no answer, just sludge from Drudge or a closeted come-on like 'Pookie.' What a drop case you are, boy...:)

Au Jimbo's way of showing his patriotism...cheer against America and the recovery. Maybe that'll change the 2012 Presidential results, somehow, if we spiral into a recession....LOL

Take all of the stock averages at their height before their collapse in the spring of 2000. then add the inflation up to now. Add the true inflation up to now. Not the fraud inflation they spew. Of course try to figure out why we are getting neat zero interest on our savings at the bank the last four years or so while you do it. Then add the printed fiat currency totaling in the trillions passed by our government leaders to pay off a whole bunch of people. then add the untold trillions printed by the FED not authorized by the government to keep this going. There is probably more. But this is what I came up with quickly. Knowing the inanity of the sytem we live in today, it is possible the extra taxes stolen from the proletariat that started Jan. 1 could have been part of this as we are not used as collateral to keep the charade going. Real inflation used to be the difference the FED printed after growth from one year to another. For many years it was six or seven per cent even with an official government spouted inflation rate of two per cent. We don't here much of that anymore.

Dumbphuq: a dow at 14,000 is a Dow at 14,000

A stock sold at 35Ĺ is 35 Ĺ, not considering the phases of the moon or the water temperature of the Haliburton's CEO's toilet.

It's 35Ĺ.

If you bout it at 25Ĺ, you made $10. If you bought it at 45Ĺ, you lost $10.

You don't own stock, eh?

People don't know the difference between the Dow and the economy. We had negative growth last quarter. One more negative growth and we will be in the Obama recession

I often wonder Progressive towards what? They seem to want a benign police state where the rulers will always agree with them and their aims. Where they never have to consider unforseen consequences. And goodness and fairness and equality will reign forevermore, A star trek kind of life Ain't gonna happen!

If by "we" you mean mankind, you are correct. Ghengis Khan was reported to have raped as many as 60,000 women, many in front of their families before he killed them. We have all heard of Vlad the impaler. The Persians, Ottomans, Romans, Napoleon, Hitler all at some point committed atrocities.
The one thing that will now make a woman equal to a large attacker is a firearm.
What has made America sick is the "progressive" movement. They steal under the guise of "compassion. They selectively enforce laws to enrich themselves and their cronies. They use every opportunity to divide us.

Talk all you want about gun control, take a long hard look at Chicago IL. President Obamaís home city. The city has had 42 slayings in January alone and the year has just started. And letís not forget the 15 year old girl Hadiya Pendelton. And Chicago has the Nationís most restrictive laws regarding gun control. Or letís not overlook Fast and Furious along the border and what happen in Milwaukee in the past week with the ATF. Then there is the Police Chief of Milwaukee said donít rely on the police or 911 because they are overwhelmed. Is there another version going on in Chicago right now.

But when all said and done I hope the president gets the job done and takes away all the legal guns in the US. Most of you donít deserve them I mean after all he did say in his first term he wanted to restrict weapons to the general public. The only bad thing about that would be the people who did not vote for him will be punished.(If you did not vote at all you are still to blame)

So Enjoy your loss of freedoms you donít deserve them.

It's hard to cry when you are making more money - real money - than in the negative numbers tea baggers make up.

The stock market: reflects the real economy and profits from the real economy hang on the wall and will be the home of the Superbowl this weekend.

That 111 percent improve kinda makes you look like a dope.

Americans deserve more than what the NRA has wrought: Sandy Hook and mass killings every two weeks.

Changes are coming whether *you* like it or not.

Real background checks- weapons and ammo.
Control on assault weapons.
No more massacre magazines
An ATM with real teeth..
Jail time for abusers.
