    One cannot help the foolish, nor the fellow travelers.

    Do you believe the president has the authority to tell a private company what goods and services it must provide to another private person or company? If you believe it you are part of the problem. Fascism is tyranny.

    It's rather bizarre how you point out how much higher the unemployment rate is now compared to 1982 -- yet you continue to insist, against all rational, that the 1982 recession was worse than Bush's Great Recession.

    Go figger.

    Actual facts always get in the way of your opinions, the unemployment today is much higher than the Reagan years because of very poor leadership on the part of Obama. The conditions were worse when Reagan took office than when Obama took office with regards to the effects on the individual. You weren't old enough to know what the early 80's were really like yet you like far too many liberals are experts on everything

    Bull****. The unemployment rate was already 14.2% before Obama was even sworn in and 16.5% by the end of Bush's Great Recession. Blaming that on Obama exposes your sycophancy.

    The two leading indicators of the economy are 1) GDP; and 2) unemployment. Both were far worse during Bush's Great Recession than during Reagan's recession. Other than delusions, thre is no case to be made that Reagan's recession was worse.

    The irony of you sarcastically claiming "Liberals are excperts on everything" while at the same time, you act as though you're an export on knowing how old I am even though I never said, is quite hysterical.

    Your defense of Obama is typical liberalism. Would have thought someone of your intelligence would be smarter than this. Apparenlty the symbolism over substance is more important to you. Obama added 4.6 trillion to the debt to generate these numbers and that is ok with you? Liberal logic is amazing, Obama was hired as the one to fix the economy and failed yet the results three years later which are worse than when he took office are irrlevant to you because you buy what he says and ignore the actual results. Are the GDP results better in 2011 than they were in 2010? If not why not? Did Bush sneak back into the WH?

    As for being an expert, i lived and worked during the Reagan term and that does make me more of an expert than you on the subject

    "Bush's Great Recession" officially ended in the second quarter of 2009. Almost 3 years ago. The economic conditions of today can best be classified as "Obama's Lame Recovery."

    Pointing out your bull**** is not defending Obama, it's pointing out bull****.

    Since you have no idea how old I am, your claim of superiority on the subjust is rooted in ignorance.

    So, master of unemployment, if you can so easily win the argument by pointing out the statistics, why aren't you doing so? Apology is still awaiting your proof of data.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    Because when I give you the answer you either ignore it or dismiss it, so educate yourself on BLS data and how it is created. As a socialist Iam sure you are used to having people give you everything but not in this case, educate yourself. bls.gov

    Aw, yes, getting a little testy, Sheik, not surprising. Hard defending the empty suit in the WH and his record. I will put my 35 years of business experience and 65 years of real life experience up against yours any day. That does make me a lot more credible except to a liberal who hates having facts refute their opinions. Bull**** is defense of Obama and his record which you do all the time. The "Obama Lame Recovery" has nothing to do with Bush and everything to do with this country getting exactly what the Obama resume showed, no leadership and poor results.
