What I really can't come up with are any conservative accomplishments.
The worst offenders of this are large cities, which tend to spend a large percentage (sometimes as much as 50%) of highway/road funds on mass transit systems, which serve less than 10% of the city's population.
Having them spend more money won't solve a thing, if they can't spend their highway/road money correctly now.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
I don't get why people are selling this time - I got it (but thought it was ill advised) in 2008. But now?
You know - in 2008, if people who sold just kep their stocks and bits - they'd be fine right now.
A screaming comes across the sky.

By the way, thought Lincoln ended slavery with the civil war and Lincoln was a Republican. Aw, that liberal education system today

Nonsense. A majority of Democrats supported the public option. They ditched it because it was going to prevent them from getting the few Republicans they needed to pass the overall bill.The public option couldn't be passed by Democrats, not a Republican filibuster.
Again, you are fundamentally dishonest. Democrats could not pass the stimulus bill without Republican support in the Senate, because of course Republicans filibuster everything. Accordingly, those measly three votes they needed wielded a tremendous amount of power to shape the bill.The stimulus received very little Republican support so Obama got what he wanted and the Bush tax cuts were extended by a lame duck Congress controlled by Democrats. Stop embarrrassing yourself.
