Well said, Doc Pauliegreenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread
YOU wanted a balanced budget...delivered in spades.
YOU wanted more jobs...unemployment at historic lows.
YOU wanted less crime....rates at historic lows.
YOU wanted world peace....delivered.
Can agrue all these and your gripes and the like would be justified. May not be as good as sold, no kidding. Jobs maybe the cheap kind. Deficit maybe cooked. Maybe all this and more. Peace? ya buddy keep dreamin.
One thing is crystal clear, this ain't no Bush economy. This ain't no boom/bust cycle resulting from the failed trickle down baloney of the Reagan yawn.
If all this is a result of a Republican Congress, bitch to them if it ain't what YOU wanted. Your taxes are too high? Bitch to Trent Lott.
Problem is many are just too damn spoiled.

ROFLMAO! We have...."world peace"??? Not on my planet. The biggest aid to the peace effort was the breakup of the Soviet Union - under the Reagan Presidency.
Crime at "historic" lows? Too funny, historically, crime is far higher than 20 and 30 years ago. SOME crimes have decreased the last few years, others have increased.
The economy? Thank the PEOPLE, not the politicians.
All in all, a funny thread, thanks :)

David, reading comprehension.....re-read the post, then ROTFLYAO at yourself.
You know, it's possible to disagree with people without belittling them. Apparently, you never learned that. Too bad for you.

>> The biggest aid to the peace effort was the breakup of the Soviet Union - under the Reagan Presidency. <<
The Berlin Wall fell in November 1989, and the Warsaw Pact crumbled in 1990. George H.W. Bush was president, not Reagan.
However, since Gorbachev was actually the man on the spot, whose policies peacefully laid the groundwork for Eastern Europe to split away, I think Gorbachev had more to do with it than Reagan - and the people of Eastern Europe had FAR MORE to do with it than RR.

The real guiding hand behind major world events, including the events in Europe is the enlightened membership of the NWO. Events in the Middle East are also orchestrated by us.

David you are a hoot man!
Why would we, the American Public, want to elect the Son of the Turd we sent out on a rail eight years ago? A Son most would agree not even close to as smart as his daddy? Is this D"W"I the best available in YOUR WORLD?
And please understand Al Gore is no dreamboat. But he has been our Vice President for eight years and has done a pretty good job. The administration he was part of has done a good job. Can always do better.
Al Gore was running for Congress 24 years ago not off roads with a car which included his sister while D"w"I. We are electing a President here, not a guy who qualifies as the guy next door. A guy who without Pop would be THE guy next door. Could say the same for Albert, but he at least has proven himself. If by no other means than he has been a public servant his entire life.
Keep laughing though, important. And no kidding some of the original post is cliche, rhetoric and glossing over. But what is fact is these are decent times and most would agree they are. Dubya is likeable, but unqualified and has way too many shady characters standing next to him for my tastes.

Patricia, I am laughing at myself, you are right, I did misread the post, at least parts of it. Other rambling parts I still find quite incomprehensible.
Doc, one thing that I like about you is that you don't hold back your opinion, lol. And I do appreciate it when you post under a recognizable name!
