Why did you man excalate things in Afghanistan ? And leave the Iraqui people hanging ?
I am absolutely positive you and your fellow pacifists would give Hitler a pass - in fact after Time mag. made him man of the year, you surely would have embraced him.
The entire world (including all of congress - both sides) agreed to take this chump out. A decision by the world and not just Bush.
Running away from bullies.......and the cut and run is natural for you.
Force companies to pay higher wages and the jobs leave. This is not rockt science.
I like the states determining their minimum wage and they shoud be able to dump it if they want to. No manufacturing jobs in New York and California and all have moved to southern right to work states.
In the 40's and 50's Detroit was a very successful city.
People worked in the city and the car companies thrived.
In the 1967 riots Detroit was damaged. People had to make a decision to stay or go.
Then several things happened in the 70's:
Detroit elected a racist mayor that promoted whites leaving the city
The mayor also did not back business so companies began to leave
The Japanese attaced our market with small cars that got good mileage - the car companies were caughy by surprise and did not react quick enough.
The Unions every 3 years demanded higher wages and benefits. The auto company management could not stand up to the Unions so gave them what they wanted as their costs went up and their market share eroded.
By the late 90's the car companies were destined for bankruptcy - their costs were too high and their debts were enormous.
So business left, the working people left, and the city was being run by a corrupt Democratic machine. The last mayor will be in jail for the next 20 years.
Over 50% of Detroit's tax money goes to pensions and debt payments, which made them bankrupt.
Peter Schiff walked around a Walmart parking lot asking customers if Walmart should pay their people $15 an hour - most people said sure. When he asked that they donate 15% of their purchases that day to the workers, they wouldn't. Then he asked if they would pay higher prices for goods at Walmart to support the $15 an hour and they all said no.
Are you Libs so stupid that you just think the companies are going to pay the wages and not pass the costs on to the consumer ?
I watch Fox news.
I have never heard them talk about global warming.
You guys assume Fox News is far right. It is the only balanced news out there.
Sounds like the kind of guy we need in government.
Not afraid to fight for what's right.
And calls a Liberal P you ssy a P you ssy......
My problem is I was there and observed all of these guys.
And I was a big Liberal for several years.
At least I admit I supported Carter and voted for him in 1980.
I need to jump on your band wagon of rewriting history.
If I can dumb myself down, I can go back to being a LIberal - then rather than arguing facts, I can say "oh little person, this is too complicated for you"......
You're cracking me up.
I understand you have to carry the buckets of kool aide, but wow, this is fascinating.
Carter got elected because of Nixon's bonehead moves.
Carter ruined the economy and we got to watch the Iranians parade the U.S. hostages around nightly while Carter stumbled around like a lost child.
What's with the fear of Fox news ? It's a program on tv.
Karl Marx would be proud.
Demonizing the rich - Occupy Wall Street
Redistribute the wealth - high taxes on producers
Nationalize industry - start with ObamaCare and take over health care
State manipulated media - MSNBC, ABC, CBS, etc.....
Hmmmmmmmmmmm, why do you suppose he got elected in 1980 ?
And land slide in 1984 ?
I voted for Jimmy Carter in 1980 and was wrong.
Reagan had guts. I am surprised you don't like him. He is from California.
Ronald Reagan was seen as too conservative in 1976.
After Jimmy Carter ruined the country, THEN the country wanted Reagan.
After the country is ruined, a new conservative will be brought in to clean it up.
Ford was a genius.
The company still understands that the people buying pickup trucks hunt, own guns, and work for a living.......
My Ford F150 has a rifle rack. I can pull my gun down and shoot within seconds.
Ford thought of everything
Why work when the government can take care of you?
I screwed up big time. If you have children, no wife, and no job, it is amazing what you get from the government. I went back in to the corporate world a few years ago and now all I do is pay taxes and watch my benefits go away........
No surprise here.
You are lucky to even own wood. Soon firewood will be outlawed. You should mount a 100 foot tower in your back yard and put in a wind turbine........Or cover your yard with Chinese built solar panels..........Or drive your electric car that is driven by your local coal burning plant.
Just do what the government tells you to do.
It is good the other guy bled to death in the streets after getting shot in the shoulder.
Shotguns - you gotta love them.
You don't have to register them and they can blow a hole in a man at close range.
And in addtion, he:
Ended the cold war
Implemented tax cuts that created the greatest bull market in history
Stock market boomed 500% due to his policies
Built up the modern day conservative movement
Peace through strength
Star Wars technology
Cust number of nuclear weapons through START and INF
Passed a massive tax reform
Shut down PATCO
