I guess it figures, based upon your responses, that it also has a higher literacy rate than Texas (which is even more retarded than Alabama).
    I figured you could keep up and I didn't have to post the Detroit numbers AGAIN. Detroit Illiterate rate is 47% and the state of Alabama's is 25%. Again I gave a liberal too much credit

    I guess what you have to do is post an actual source that supports the number you just pulled out of your ass.

    Well, there's obviously something screwed up here. You've got one study showing 47% illiteracy and another showing under 20%.

    One thing abound bama they know a ferner when they see one.

    <Alabama Arrests Another Foreign Auto Executive>

    <First, it was a German national working for Mercedes Benz was arrested under Alabama’s new immigration law, and now a Honda exec from Japan. >

    <Yada was stopped in Leeds, Alabama, at a checkpoint set up by police to catch unlicenced drivers. He was ticketed on the spot, despite the fact that he showed an international driver’s licence, a valid passport and a US work permit.>

    Bet that wouldn't happen in Motor City.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Your ignorance of what went on in the 80's is quite telling. Reagan's budgets and economic policies were DOA according to Tip O'Neil but that fact escapes you just like the net 17 million job increase during his term. If you believe liberal economic policy will save the American economy then you are indeed hopeless and ignore the actual Obama results generated with a Democrat Congress with overwhelming numbers. Neither Reagan or Bush had those kind of numbers. Reagan took his policies to the American people and Bush implemented his policies from 2003-2006 and the results are there for all to see. Stop ignoring them.
    The only mistake I see that President Obama has made is he has tried to hard to negotiate with republicans and that cost the democrats a lot of seats in 2010. If the Reagan era democrats had signed pledges to never lower taxes Reagan would have accomplished nothing.If Tip O'Neil had wanted to kill any Reagan or republican bill he could have. You need to do some home work before you accuse others of being ignorant of facts

    For the first six years of the Reagan presidency (1981-87) The Republicans controlled the Senate, and the Democrats the House f Representatives

    In 1986, the Democrats recaptured the Senate (while retaining the House) and thereafter remained in control of both chamber until losing both in 1994.

    So I will repeat it for you again you can not compare the Reagan and Obama presidencies, one reason is that President Reagan had a democratic party that would negotiate with him another was 270 plus democrats had not signed a lobbyist drawn up pledge to never lower taxes

    Nonsense. He had to negotiate with blue dog dems more than he ever did with Republicans. That isnt what cost him. His policies is what cost him. When you say this will happen as in the case of the stimulus and the result is not really close, you have a credibility issue.

    YouŽre right. There are few serious auto execs left in Detroit and those remaining would not want to stop their car anywhere within its boundaries.

    But yes. Your statement is reasonable. Going from a 230 ship Navy to an Navy over 500 ships created jobs in the private sector. Creating new, highly accurate ballistic missiles created many, well-paying jobs. Creating cruise missiles and stealthy aircraft all created many, many jobs. But all combined did not create anywhere near 17 million new jobs. Entrepreneurs did that. If government will remove its hands from around the throats of job makers an economic miracle could occur again.
    If military spending is the way to prosperity, and if we're currently spending more on the military than any other nation, then we should be well on the way to prosperity.
