    That so called conservative whine you and others claim about is nothing more than rhetoric. Historical data plays no place in your world as feelings trump reality and negative pro growth economic policy rhetoric trumps the foundation upon which this country was built.
    Actually your constant whine about books vs 'street smarts' is passe. I was everywhere from jungle to street for most my adult life. I didn't read about it, I lived it. THIS recession is far deeper with a much bigger trigger than the 80's one.

    What happened is the nation went from a creditor state to a debtor state back in the 80's. The GOP spend our grandkids future for quick infusions of money to 'trickle down' on the Middle Class.

    We now reap the whirlwind sown back in the 'good ol' days'.

    It really is hard dealing with such an expert as you, someone who didn't work during the 81-82 recession and is so brainwashd that they will not even do any proper research. The comparison between the two recession is there to see, you choose to believe what you are told and ignore the fact that you just come be wrong just like a lot of other people

    Logging is dependent on housing starts, very few housing starts means very little logging. I blame obama for keeping the economy thus housing starts in the toilet.

    LOL, yeah, right, how did this recession hurt you and your family? Obviously you need a big central govt. to protect you from poor personal choices

    the debt in the 80's was 1.7 trillion in 8 years, Obama has run up almost 6 trillion in four.
