    So who wrote that email anyway?

    And is that from 1992? Because I'm pretty sure the Soviet Union isn't a thing...

    To be totaly honest it was started by a friend but I took off on it and did about 80% so flame me for my rant. You are correct though it started as a email

    You don't think they still try to influence and fight against us. See Iran!

    You're apparent lack of geopolitical knowledge that's 20 years old: You own it.

    Congratulations to the Democrats and Young People! You now own it and you can't blame Bush.
    The next terrorist attack you own it.

    Americans killed under obama by terrorist attacks on civilians on 9/11, 4. Americans killed under bush by terrorist attacks on civilians on 9/11, 2996. Obama is still doing better.

    Can't get a job after graduation, you own it.
    Stop majoring in underwater basket weaving or comparative literature.

    Sky rocketing energy prices due to Obama's EPA shutting down the energy producing states, you own it.
    Shutting down the energy producing states? Pretty sure they are still there. See natural gas production for example.

    A nuclear Iran, you own it.
    Israel owns it.

    Bowing to the Soviet Union, you own it.
    I think this email is a little old.

    Another severe recession, you own it.
    I suppose obama can own up to the next one when the republicans own up to the last one.

    A volatile border with Mexico, you own it.
    True this is a mess for everyone. The border really just needs to have a massive frickin wall. With a moat. With sharks with lasers on their frickin heads.

    Trouble getting good health care, you own it.
    As a type 1 diabetic I figure have a better shot with preexisting conditions stuff thrown out the window so I think I'm better off.

    Higher health insurance costs and health care costs, you own it.
    If costs go up as they have been, it's shitty, but it's also a continuation.

    No budget, you own it.
    True

    Our allies mistrust, you own it.
    Cool story bro.

    Another trillion of debt, you own it.
    I thought deficits didn't matter? Or is there a set number of points where the step function turns to f(t) = 1 for deficits mattering and f(t) = 0 for deficits not mattering?

    More Benghazi situations, you own it.
    Agreed.

    No one willing to join the military, you own it.
    Military recruiting remains strong, as all active and reserve components of the U.S. Armed Forces met or exceeded recruiting and retention goals during the month of June 2012.

    On July 23rd, the Department of Defense announced recruiting and retention statistics. For the active duty forces, the numbers broke out as follows. Accessions to the Army were 42,538, which was 101 percent of the goal. Accessions to the Navy were 24,854, 100 percent of the goal. Accessions to the Marine Corps were 18,391, 100 percent of the goal; and the Air Force, accessions were 21,332, 100 percent of the goal.


    Trouble getting a loan to buy a home, you own it.
    I'm not sure how true this one is, although it has more to do with banks than anyone else. But I agree, this could at least feasibly be thrown at his feet to some degree.

    More dependency on food stamps, you
    own it.
    Most programs such as these are described and legislated by laws that have been around for a while.

    Trouble finding good employment, you own it.
    Blame congress.

    Several part time jobs instead of a good job, you own it.
    As above.

    A World Government, you own it.
    Have you been hanging out with juror no. 8 too much?

    The UN governing the United States instead of ourselves, you own it.
    See above.

    A Senate that will not bring any legislation to the table even if it is "Dead on Arrival", you own it.
    Congress sucks.

    China controlling our world trade trampling all over us, you own it.
    Someone should nuke our trade agreements but that is another discussion.

    Loss of our freedoms as we have known it in the past, you own it.
    This is a good reason to vote against the two main parties.

    A dictatorship instead of a democracy that follows the Constitution, you own it.
    See comments above on juror no. 8. Also, lay off the weed (unless you are in colorado in which case, enjoy! ;) )

    Less take home pay and higher living costs, you own it.
    Unless you are in the 1%!

    Driving a car that looks like a toy, you own it.
    With less take home pay, 30mpg is a tad cheaper than 10 mpg.

    More government corruption and lies, you own it.
    While this administration has been arguably much better than certain previous ones, I think holder is terrible (and I believe/hope he will be resigning). THe petraeus stuff is also.......strange.

    More toleration of extreme and fanatical Islamists, you own it.
    Obama has killed more terrorists by far than bush by drones, plus osama, etc etc etc. Of course, whether or not we should continue that is a good debate, but the idea that we have more tolerance of extreme islamist fanatics is silly.

    Terrorist attacks called work place incidents, you own it.
    eh?

    Your revenge instead of love of country, you own it.
    A couple stupid tweets (or whatever this is a reference to) make a bad starting point for a generalization of a large group of people. (this goes for R and D). Although, at least with mccain vs obama, there was no doubt that mccain did truly care for this country and its people (look at the dude's history); with romney's 47% remark, that is very much in doubt. Obama pretty clearly cares for this country and its people as well. I don't think any of the nutcases at the fringes of either party ever really did, though.
    President
    George Bush is out of it now, and
    there is not another good man for you to vilify and lie about. In a way
    I am relieved that another good man will not be blamed when it was
    impossible to clean up this mess you voted for. Have a good day.
    I tend to be of the belief that most intelligent republicans figured the next four years were going to suck and whoever is in power will be hated afterward which is why everyone in the primaries was either mitt romney or a total retard. I hope that isn't the entire makeup of the republican party these days. Although to be fair, mitt romney can cover a lot of positions so that alone makes it a decent "big tent" party.
    End rant have a good day :)
    You too!

    Then you and "your friend" are very popular, because this entire C&P is getting passed around like a cold.
    Might want to Google the first few lines next time you plagiarize something.

    We accept any and all gratuities, but prefer cash, money orders, and major credit cards. Death and taxes are unavoidable and, of the two, taxes are immortal and we'll keep taxing you after you die. Perhaps by the word.

    OP,
    I stopped reading the list after the mention of the USSR. Are you really worried about the UN too?
