    I would rather gain 18 million. I would also like to grow wings so I can fly around at will. I would also like every Playboy centerfold over the last five years to develop and deep and insatiable craving for me.

    But I will accept a modest gain over a significant loss given the parameters of reality.

    Oh here we go. It was today.

No problem. let all that hate out, and send it my way. I relish it. Meanwhile, you could say something about the OP, since I do not happen to be the topic of this thread. LOL.
    Yeah, so you can point to one thing. I did say 90%. I know you do occasionally bash a Democrat, but it's like a gala event when you do, it's so rare.

    No, it's not the topic of the thread, so I'll leave you with this -- why not peruse your own posting history objectively and take a look to see whether I'm right.

They are back in recession because of economic policy mistakes made by their leaders. There is plenty of room for improvement in our numbers but as long as the rest of the world is slowing or going backwards, I can't see us doing much better. We could however get much worse and join our European friends in another downturn if we aren't careful. I think it is foolish to switch horses in the middle of a recovery so fragile and risk a long painful Romney recession. Since every Republican President has had one in his first term it is twice as dangerous. Unless of course you like recessions.

    Again, I am not the topic of this thread. If you have an issue with what I posted, then speak to the issue. What you are doing is silly.

    Yeah we could continue to go along with more failure, but why?

    Why is Europe in their mess? Socialism

    That should answer your question why we have to change.

    We need a growing economy, and Obama is not about growth, he's about borrow and spend and entitlements.

    You do of course realize that there were 119,000 fewer Americans employed in August than there were in July... And on top of that, it takes around 125,000 jobs created per month just to keep up with population growth...

    So you might want to reconsider calling the August numbers a "modest gain" and give that "significant loss" title some more thought. It might be a better fit.

    Yeah, you're so above it all. You'd never troll a thread or anything. Oh, wait:

    I, of course, had already let this go, but your continuing to push it with the "what? Lil' ol ME????" act . . . pathetic. At least own what you do.

    Do you realize you're wrong about that?
