    No, thanks to the elected thugs from the Republican party…who are deliberately trying to crash the economy for ( they think! ) political gain.

    Patrick Henry once said: “I may not like what you say b8ut I will defend to the death your right to say it” Or close enough I served in the military in VietNam and I defended your right to be as stupid as you sound to me.

    If you people would just give more tax cuts to the rich then the job creators could get everyone back to work. It’ll happen this time, trust me.

    Re: the quote: These words are regularly attributed to Voltaire, they were first used by Evelyn Beatrice Hall, writing under the pseudonym of Stephen G Tallentyre in The Friends of Voltaire (1906), as a summation of Voltaire’s beliefs on freedom of thought and expression.

    Explain something to me….

    How, exactly, was the VietNam conflict a war to defend my First Amendment rights?

    Sorry, but you’re the first Nam vet I ever heard make THAT claim

    Come on, every true blue (or is it red?) conservative knows that it was Mitt Romney who said "I may not like what you say b8ut I will defend to the death your right to say it” Har, har, har!

    I used to be a Republican. Then came G. W, Bush. He repulsed, I revolted. Now comes the greatest comedy act of the century, the Republican primaries! The front runner is a man whose religion forces him to wear sacred, church approved underwear all of his life. You want Romney, you better study the history and the canons of JCLDS, aka “the Mormons”

    This time. Let’s see last time was when Bush came into office. It lasted for 7 years and Bush has been out of office close to three years now. Get a grip. With all the evidence of social welfare state being a failure, the Soviet Union, Venezuela, Cuba, Europe, Greece, Italy and China becoming more like us and raising over 400 million out of poverty just what will it take to prove to you all to stop spending.

    Actually, Obama PROMISED the times would be a-changin’, but I haven’t really seen him deliver much. We’re still in Iraq and Afghanistan, the government is still tapping our phones and gagging our librarians, people are still being held without trial at Guantanamo, we haven’t renounced torture and rendition, the TSA still subjects us to every indignity short of anal probes, the Treasury Department continues its thrall to Wall Street, our economic health, foreign policy, and lungs are still tied to Big Oil, and war criminals continue to get sweetheart book deals instead of an all-expenses-paid trip to The Hague.
     
    And, as Pat points out, the economy’s still in the toilet that Bush/Cheney dropped it into, and the unemployment problem just won’t go away. For the latter, I blame the GOP much more than Obama, who is at least TRYING to do something about it. Clearly, the Republicans are doing everything they can to ensure he doesn’t succeed, because then they’d have no hope at all of winning the presidency back.
     
    In short, I have plenty of disgust to go around for the ineptness of the Democrats and the venality of the Republicans.

    Unemployment under Bush went from 4% to 8%; under Obama, it climbed to 10% then dropped back down. Who did a better job? Certainly not the Repubs, who have tied a tax break for the wealthy and corporations to every job proposal.
