Who crashed the economy in 2008?

The SAME Republicans who are pushing us over the cliff in 2012.


When will America learn?

1. If there had been an effort to go after the banksters and not go along with giving them de facto

 

immunity as well as hundreds of billions of dollars, I would readily agree with you that it was all the Republicans' fault.

"We" are now financing endless wars with money that we don't have. And, for the first time in history, a President of the United States is offering to cut Social Security as a solution.

You ask, "When will America learn?" I think that they are learning right now.

3. Hey, aren't you one of those haters?


But seriously, if Democracy, and its stewards, can't take a little criticism then what is it really?

2. Never. If some haven't learned by now what do you believe that it would take??!!


Interestingly the market started to tank on 9/29 2008. Add a 1 before that. 1929.

4. It helps if you think of America as a hyperactive three year old with ADD

Anything beyond a few weeks days ago is ancient history best left to fuzzy headed academics.

If you don't know where you have been you really don't know how you got where you are.
