Dang your right, probably should have backed that to when then Dems took power in 2006 ... so 2007 first year of Dem spending... probably have to include Clinton's surpluss as repubs were in charge ...
Still, Bush was a "lame duck" for thoes 3 months and you want to give him credit for the whole year? I don't know why you want to give Bush credit for Obama' grand 2009 spending bill (AKA stem-u-less package) or medical reform bill ... that would take away all of Obama's "great accomplishments" ... or the dems'a famous 180 days. Give accountability where accountability is due -- Obama clearly own 2009!
I guess poor Bush Jr was just unlucky huh?
He took that "lucky" surplus and squandered it.
How is that trickle down working? How many jobs did Bush create with it?
Oh, BTW, those tax cuts are still in effect. Where are the jobs from the transference of wealth to the rich through tax cuts to them?
Still waiting 10 years later..
Funny thing about facts they always seem to get in the way when you have a certain ideoligy. It seems to me that maybe we are seeing a beginning of a short attack. They are trying to push out the more experienced investors and scare those who have everything in one stock. It is hard when you first start investing. I lost everything a time or two. But after making mistakes you learn. I think that the current situation is something that both sides should want to resolve in a way that gives all of us a chance for a future. I do not see higher taxes for anyone as a good idea. As well as hurting the poorest among us as a good idea. That said there are many parasites that are now feeding off the trough of gov and who want others to pick up the tab. How we get them off the public dole I am not quite sure since removing them will also hurt the ones that truely need help. You might compare these people to those who walk their dog so that the dog can take a dump on someone elses lawn instead of their own. They see nothing wrong with leaving the dump there and thus make someone else pick up after them while their own home stays clean. I think that given the current situation we are in there will be many that will get hurt, but in a long run this will be a lot better than everyone being hurt. I also do not beleive that if the gov defaults that it will cause a colapse in the market. If anything I think that if the market sees that the gov is getting its house in order then this could be the beginning of a major rally and a recovery in the economy. If not I think we will see more of what we have had for the last several years. keynesian economics does not work it did not work for Japan and it is not working here. We need to go back to supply side economics, though even this will take time since so much damage has already been done. GLTA
Your vitriolic, self-congratulatory diatribes, disseminated via multiple aliases, all have the same transparent "DNA". If your comments had any merit, substance, or value, it might not matter. Unfortunately, your writing not only lacks substance, but would appear to indicate significant emotional problems. You would be better served on a "self-help" message board, where people/professionals can address your specific issues.
While you are on your self-help vision quest, I'll just put you on "ignore". Don't get sad or upset; it's for y(our) own good.
