It's distressing knowing that someone your age cannot differentiate between a "fact" and unsubstantiated "opinion", which(the latter) is what you regularly try to pass off as facts.

In the Fall of 2008, Bush was running around—“ahhh, ahhhh, America’s going bankrupt.“ Ben Bernake was sweating like he just ran a marathon, McCain yelling “incoming, incoming, git off my lawn”– OBL making videos while Americans were dodging bullets in Iraq.
America was the laughing stock of the world with shoes being thrown at the president. Stock market crashing, banks failing while Paul Ryan was borrowing the money from China that he’s railing about now.
And then, in steps the hated Kenya, Communist, Socialist, Muslim and look at what he’s done in four years…people:
1. Saved the banks
2. Brought the stock market from 6,500K to 13,000K
3. Saved GM
4. Repealed DADT
5. Ordered a Mini Dream Act
6. Created 4.3 million jobs
7. 27- straight months of private-sector job growth
8. Passed Healthcare
9. Ended the war in Iraq
10. Drawing down from Afghanistan
11. Doubled the Number of Border Security Agents
12. Appointed First Hispanic Justice
13. Restored America’s Standing in the world
14. Dealt effectively with the BP Oil Spill
15. Dealt effectively with the Pirate Crisis
16. Dealt effectively with H1N1
17. Kept America Safe
18. Passed Financial Reform
19. Passed a Credit-Card Bill of Rights
20. Passed Equal Pay for Women
21. Nearly Wiped out Al Qaeda
22. Killed OBL
23. Added Eight-yeas of solvency to Medicare
24. Quit smoking
25. And got a dog
All of this was done with a republican opposition to every single thing he tried to do.
So yes, not only are we better off now, we’ll be even better four years from now with Obama’s leadership!!!
They don't think we're better off than four years ago?
Droput please...

The only people who are better off now than they were when Obama became president are the bankers, brokers, welfare recipients, homosexuals and illegal aliens.

Obama was elected in 2008. At that time he had both houses of congress. Two years later the American electorate gave the house of representatives to the Republicans. Two years later they reelected Obama but gave the house even more Republicans. Now that people are being affected by the truth of Obamacare, they will give republicans the senate too. Obama will be a lame duck and can do no more harm until he can be replaced in 2016. By then the American people will have to ask themselves, Are you better off now than you were eight years ago and for those of us on main street the answer is NO. We are worse off with no end in sight. All because Obama failed us.
NO! OBAMA DID NOT CONTROL CONGRESS HIS FIRST TWO YEARS!

Can we, once and for all, put that lie to rest? People I actually like and respect heard this on Fox (to be precise, you probably heard it the last time on “Morning Joe” with Joe Scarborough in mid-April of this year) and keep repeating it. But I don’t care if you heard it in Sunday School (and in Kansas… you may have)– it’s a lie.

Before I accuse anybody of being unbelievably forgetful, I will admit that I can’t remember what I had for breakfast today. Being forgetful is not a crime. Lying is sometimes a crime, but when you lie on internet political blogs, that’s not a crime. However, it should tug at your conscience a bit.

Let’s take a trip back to 2008.

And let’s brush up on some basics. First, did you forget that the President needed 60 votes to pass legislation? The healthcare bill is a good example of that. There were NOT 60 Democrats in the Senate. Remember that? So there had to be reconciliation.

What about the Stimulus? Again, there was NOT 60 Democratic votes to pass it. Reconciliation did not work. It was blocked by the Republicans, and Obama traded job-creating for tax cuts. Remember those tax cuts he let go on? Yep, traded for job creation - which it did accomplish as much as the baby stimulus that he was able to get would allow.

Is it all coming back to you now? How about this: It was Obama’s inaugural dinner. Senator Kennedy suffered a seizure. It’s kind of hard to work when you’ve had a seizure. He went back to Massachusetts.

Old news is so much fun to go back and read about. Here’s one I had forgotten, too. Al Franken had not yet been seated because the previous senator had challenged the election. Mein Gott, that went on forever with no way for him to vote in the Senate.

With Kennedy in Massachusetts and Franken in purgatory, awaiting his chance in the hell that is Congress, that left just 58 votes in the Senate. Memory Refresher: It took 60 votes to pass a bill in the Senate. The Republicans were already playing dirty politics and would not work across the aisle with the Democrats.

By the way, that was 56 Democrats and 2 Democratically-minded Independents. Not 58 Democrats.

Then, in April 2009 – good news. Republican Arlen Spector switched to Democrat. That gave the Democrats 60 seats with which to discourage a Republican filibuster (their most prized procedure at the time). But… oh no… we forgot, Al Franken was still in Purgatory out there in election recount turmoil. So… back to 59 votes......

YOU, yourself, display your racism in your posts with your stereotypes, your utterly wrong assumptions and assertions and the oblivious way you insult your own children as you attack others.

I'm not a minority, but I don't have to be one to know racist and bigoted terminology. You own it. Deal with it.

Of course it will circle back to materials and overhead etc. but as you can see, the inflation even at 100% wage increase to EVERONE wouldn't be wiped out by passing the ENTIRE amount on. Of course no everyone will get an increase, few of those that do will not get 100% and we haven't even started to recoup the unjustly increased profiting.
I'll take a 100% increase even if it costs me 33% inflation. Thank you.
<quoted text>Read it again. I did not. I said it would happen but I didn't bother running the figures out again Go ahead dumbass, add 33% to each and run them again the bottom line of the rework will be way under 100%.
You are showing nothing to substantiate you wild claims. You're merely trying to regurgitate and defend what your much smarter boss convinced you of. It isn't working.
We would have 100% more to by those things that increased far less than 100%. Got it yet? Geesh!
You never ran a business then.. You can call me a dumbazz all you like it don't bother me.. Employers are at their margins regarding small business's and raising up HCI thanks to aca by 25% that 66% deduction becomes out of reach for many and the employee's..

Barack Hussein Bush (or George W. Obama)
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/201...
At week’s end, polls showed that only 40 percent of Americans believed President Obama was telling the truth when he promised that anyone who liked their health insurance plan could keep it. Fifty percent of those surveyed thought the president had “knowingly lied.”

I’m neither an elitist nor a White House apologist, but I’m with the 40 percent on this one. Having covered the White House during the Clinton and George W. Bush years, I’ve seen this movie. A president promises something, it doesn’t happen, and -- boom!-- he’s branded a liar.

You are blind to the reality that you believe the same thing Hitler did, all based on bad science and an even worse interpretation of history. Basically, you believe what you want to believe because you need it to feel better about yourself. Jmho.
