    You don`t have to be an "elitist" to know that EVERYTHING in America is worse than it was on Jan 20th 2009.

     



    No, but you'd have to be dumb as a bloody box of idiots to believe it....

     

     

     

     

     

     

     




    Sorry matty, the "dumb as a bloody box of idiots" folks are the ones that think things are better.  No use debating those hopeless ideologues.

     



    You're just plain wrong. (and stole my line)

    Some things are better.  Some things are not.

     

    Funny how the simplest answers elude even the simple.

    And it`s really funny how an America falling apart, right in your face, is "improving" because you voted for a dope and can`t admit he`s failing miserably.

    What`s better?  The DOW?  Great, the uber-rich are cashing out.  Every economist on earth is warning of the inevitable collapse.

    What`s better?  Please.........do tell.

    Come out of your ideological bubble and into the real world will you?  Deficit= $1.2 trillion and debt at $17 trillion(on it`s way to 20).  There`s 20,000 troops in Iraq. N Korea has  nukes and are testing (pointing)them in(at) Japan.  Iran is weeks away from a nuke. 26 million are unemployed or under employed........"jobs created"?  Get your head out!

    Put down the remote, stop watching Colbert and Stewart, and go check out what economists are saying.

    Re: 45 years ago yesterday this man and 107 others were released from a Vietnamese prison .

    Yup, things are WAaaaaaaaaay better.  (eye roll)

     

    +30.5B: Federal Spending Up, Not Down, in First 5 Months of FY13 March 15, 2013

    (CNSNews.com) - Federal spending was up $30.5 billion in the first five months of fiscal 2013 compared to the first five months of fiscal 2012, according to newly released data from the U.S. Treasury.

    The federal fiscal year begins on Oct. 1 and runs through Sept. 30. In the first five months of fiscal 2012 (October through February), according to the Monthly Treasury Statement, total federal spending was approximately $1,473,999,000,000.00. In the first five months of fiscal 2013, total federal spending was $1,504,547,000,000.00.

    Thus, federal spending was $30,548,000,000.00 more in the first five months of fiscal 2013 than it was during the first five months of fiscal 2012.

    The federal government is also spending at a much faster pace this year than it did before President Barack Obama took office.

    In the first five months of fiscal 2008 (the last full fiscal year before Obama took office), the federal government spent $1,230,412,000,000.00. That is $274,315,000,000.00 less than the $1,504,547,000,000.00 that the federal government spent in the first five months of this fiscal year.

    So far this fiscal year, the federal government is spending an average of about $300,909,400,000.00 per month. If the government maintained that average pace for all 12 months of the fiscal year, it would spend a total of $3,610,912,800,000.00.

    Through all of fiscal 2008, before Obama took office, the federal government spent a total 2,978,440,000,000.00. Adjusted for inflation, that equals $3,211,717,910,000.00 in 2013 dollars. So, were the government to continue on its pace to spend $3,610,912,800,000.00 this year, then real federal spending in fiscal 2013 would be $399,194,890,000.00 more than it was in the last full fiscal year before Obama became president.

    Congress would need to cut $399 billion this year to bring inflation-adjusted federal spending back to the level it was before Obama.

    According to the CBO, the sequester that has now taken effect will cut only $44 billion from the money that was expected to be spent through the remainder of this fiscal year.

    You can make your point without being a complete and utter idiot. Obama was all of seven 45 years ago.  Highly doubtful he was smoking dope while riding his trike.  You on the other hand probably were.  Keep it up, this kind of stuff gets conservatives lots of votes.

    As always, you`re not paying attention.  He`s not "smoking dope".  You can clearly see it`s a KOOL filter.

    Anyway if a serviceman doesn't report for duty ... that is considered being AWOL

    Sister, that was a BS story from the beginning. In addition, what wasn't reported was that Bush volunteered for Vietnam but was turned down for lack of experience.

    Did his request chit for duty in Viet Nam get eaten by his dog ? There are no records of him requesting transfer to Viet Nam...... he did get transferred from the Texas Air National Guards to the 187th Tactical Reconnassiance Group in Montgomery Alabama and he never showed up. If you or I did that we would have been charged with being U.A. or dessertion.

    Do you have proof?  Daddy pulls strings to get sonny boy in the guard and away from nam and junior wants a transfer to nam?  Not buying it.  Not even sure it's possible to transfer from the guard to the air force.  In any event, nothing stopped W from heading down to the local recruitment office and signing up.

    Ok...let me try this again since someone (and no, not saying sistersledge did it) decided to remove my very benign post. Here it is again.

    Does the military have record of Bush not showing up for duty? I couldn't find anything when I googled it. If you have a link to evidence of Bush not reporting for duty that would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Re: 45 years ago yesterday this man and 107 others were released from a Vietnamese prison .

     

    Do you have proof?

     

     

    Yes, page 130 of the CBS investigation into "Rathergate."

    http://www.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/national/20050110_CBS_Report.pdf

    The clear inference from this excerpt is that President Bush was in the TexANG to avoid service in Vietnam. Bush did state in his 1968 TexANG application that he did not volunteer togo overseas. However, Mapes had information prior to the airing of the September 8 Segmentthat President Bush, while in the TexANG, did volunteer for service in Vietnam but was turneddown in favor of more experienced pilots. 72 For example, a flight instructor who served in theTexANG with Lieutenant Bush advised Mapes in 1999 that Lieutenant Bush “did want to go toVietnam but others went first.” Similarly, several others advised Mapes in 1999, and again in 2004 before September 8, that Lieutenant Bushhad volunteered to go to Vietnam but did not have enough flight hours to qualify.    

     

    Look, I know that it's an article of faith with you guys that Bush was (is) evil and stupid, jsut like you do now with Palin, but you weaken your case when you throw out easily disprovable "facts." I'd have a lot more respect for your side if you stuck to real facts and kept the personal attacks out of it.
