Not even 'Hope?'
Let's see, we've had 20 years of low crime, increases in jobs, increases in business, more tourists, America's safest large city.
What exactly does Bill di Blassio & the Democrats wish to change?
Everybody running around claiming how "Progressive" they are.
He used a shot gun.
Lets see, black, psycho, liberal, Obama supporter uses a shot gun to murder white people for no apparent reason....
What do we hear from liberals? "It's Reagan's fault!"
And I was worried that Al Jazeera America would be just propaganda.
If Obumbles had never become president!
Or if abortion had been legal in 1960 - 1961.
Thy've killed over 100,000 with bullets bombs and torture and I'm supposed to get unraveled because they killed a few with gas. EH!
To be honest, I don't really care. Both sides are blood thirsty barbarians. Muslims killing Muslims, "Let Allah sort it out!"
Give me a hundred thousand dollars, and I'll give you a quarter back!
HA HA HA LOL!
I have often wondered if things might have been different if Greenberg had stayed around.
(1) AIG sold "insurance" on derivatives but bought no "reinsurance" to protect their own bottom line. This is SO STUPID for an insurance guy.
(2) The Quant Unit was in England where it was less supervised than if it might have been at AIG's HG in lower Manhattan. It would seem that none of the hot-shot quants were insurance guys with basic business knowledge. They were all just number crunchers.
(3) I heard most of the billions we poured through AIG were to make EU banks solvent. We spent BILLIONS to subsidize the EU. Now I have to listen to munchingmanpolejumper tell me how the EU is more efficient & profitable. We subsidize their socialist economy, healthcare and national defense. Ain't that BEAUTIFUL!
Walmart, Target, Sears, and Kroger.
Your underlying assumption is that all other things are equal in USA compared to Australia. Does Australia have $15 trillion in national debt? Do they have the same cost of living? Do they have the same 7.4% unemployment rate that BarriBoi the Magnificent has created for us? My understanding is that Australian economy is NOT like the economy of Detroit, or Washington DC. Australians probably have an education system so that the average Australian knows which end of a pen to scratch his mark with!
One of the big problems is QUALITY. VW, Mercedes, Audi all have QUALITY! Chrysler has no quality. GM not much better. Problem is STILL US idea of planned obsolescence. Use to be your car turned to junk in about 3 years and less than 100k miles. Now its maybe 10 years and 150 k miles. But German and Jaopanese cars are better made and more reliable.
munchingmanpolejumper doesn't know that MOST jobs in US economy are with SMALL businesses, not the giant multinationals. THIS IS A TRUE FACT!
BarryBoi Our Magic HNIC has 12 million unemployed! Not to say that 2.9 million are unimportant
SMALL business is the generator of the most jobs anyway, and the BOGroup is CRUSHING small business with over 65,000 pages of new regulations and at least 5,000 pages of new laws! Also, outright harassment of small businesses that are run by conservtives & Republicans. When BOGroup Government Motors they fired & destroyed succesful car dealerships BECAUSE they were owned by Republicans!
I look up "Liquidationism" on Wikipedia and is a commie #$%$ concept:
Liquidationism is a term in Marxist theory which refers to the ideological liquidation of the revolutionary party program by party members. According to the Russian revolutionary Vladimir Lenin, liquidationism "consists ideologically in negation of the revolutionary class struggle of the socialist proletariat in general, and denial of the hegemony of the proletariat"
I am a little vague as to how that applies to the Republican Party. But then who ever expects mincingmanpolemuncher to make sense.
