Read monica's lips, no more blowjobs in the white house.... Oh and a deal on a shredder... LOL that is just poetic.. I imaging AL will need a new scredder after Bill and Hillary wore out the last one during Filegate...
When I was in the Army Air Corps back in the 40's we had an expression I have never forgotten for pointless activities: "Grading sh*t". Voting in any election in recent memory is aptly described by that expression. The last national candidate I was genuinely enthused about was Wallace -- Henry Wallace that is, President Roosevelts Secretary of Agriculture who ran in 1948.
ANY of you libs wanna look at the interest rate when Reagan took office against when he left? Any of you libs wanna look at the growth of the economy, lowering of taxes MASSIVELY, the fall of the Soviet empire, the neato weapons that were devoloped for Bill's around the world fireworks display, and other HUGE accomplishments during the Reagan/Bush years? The biggest real arguement I have heard against Reagan's policies is a few loafers had to work a little.
I'm sure someone will credit something to Clinton/Gore, but they've had 7 years to do what they wanted. They've had a congress giving them more money than they asked for when they took office. I see not much benefit for over 1.5 trillion dollars spent every year that can be attributed to them. If you think differently, just listen to themselves talk about how many people still need help. Here in NC, we still haven't seen money come in that was promised for massive flooding due to Floyd. Thats been over a year, and we still have people living in temporary trailers that were supposed to be used no longer than 6 months. A few people were given $10k to start over and move out. They spent it on B.S., and now they still live in the trailers, and the money paid to those people is gone. The tax payer still pays to keep those people up in those trailers. The buy outs promised would give the people who had contributed something to society some needed capital to rebuild, but that money is VERY slow arriving. Government wastes more money than it spends effectively. Anyone happy with the 2% rate of return on your social security money? If so, please let me hold your money for you and I will pay you the 2% interest while a guaranteed bank cd will pay me over 5% (and that SUCKS).
I tend to agree more with Bohemian as far as philosophy, but the constituion party is not going to win this election. If it was up to me, I would allow all governments collectively to take no more than 25% of your income (work for an even lower rate), but do away with almost, if not all the loop holes. Bush is still spending WAY too much money, but I'll take him any day over a proven liar that wants nothing less than a socialist society here in America. If Gore wins, you people better be ready to give up some of those SUV's, hand over some of your guns, and pay more taxes.
Oh my God. You guys are abusing this forum. This is hot deal. If you want to talk about politics, please move the thread to OT or something. Most of us are not interested in what you think about politics in the Hot Deal forum.
tinneric, you really have no clue. "Reganomics" did a lot as one above post states. He was given a crappy time period when taking office and he was able to turn it around. With a couple of exceptions, he probably did more for this country during office than any other president in history. I think we have a communist in this thread as well. I hope he does not live here in the US.. he does not deserve such a great country. Corporate America (CAPITALISM) is the reason this country has been able to become so powerful and filled with opportunities. I tired of socialists and communists bitching about this country. Move out.
For edification purposes only: Anybody remember the largest government bailout in history? The Savings & Loan bailout that was covered up by Reagan/Bush so Bush could be elected, which resulted in the amount of our taxpayer funded bailout growing by billions because of the delay? Now that's integrity!
directcom, relax and stop crying. Your attitude and choice of words are not going to persuade nor impress anyone. I do hope you at least benefit from your own disgusting rude behavior. No one like YOU is going to get under my skin. Have a nice weekend.
For education pruproses only: education is not spelled "edification"
A Fun Fact you have to Love:
Remember when Ole George was running for governor against Ann Richards , and she was shown on the news bird hunting, quail or pheasant, I don't remember. But then George had to show he was as least as manly as Ann Richards - So he went out and shot a bird on the Endangered Species list!!
This is not meant to be "subliminablbble"
Oh- Education would be to look up edification - meant to be good- natured, and just proves again that this is an educational forum, even off topic
