    Both. I give plenty to charities in time volunteering and money. I am also a life-time member of the VFW and do volunteer effort there as well. Maybe you would like to share with us how charitable you are with your money and time.

    We save one third of personal income and give the rest away.
    Some goes to employees and about 20 to 25 percent goes anonomously to our favorite charities.

    We feel a gift is a gift.

    buying into the whole "Republicans do no wrong" attitude you seem to exhibit. You blame everyone but the GOP. That is the first sign of arrogance on your part. BOTH sides have hurt this country, but you remain blind to that fact. You keep drinking the GOP koolaid of "blame the Dems for everything" and take NO responsibility.



    You have no room to talk and No, none of my comments are based in Bush hatred. Try again son.



    And under Bush the GOP did nothing. They could have easily stopped EVERYTHING, but they were too busy trying to make gay marriage and flag burning federally illegal instead.



    ADo you need to be reminded the GOP could have stopped all that?



    There WAS dscrimination and it was proven, however, much like everything the government does it doesn't swing things small. It swings wide and goes from one extreme to another.



    Sorry, but the irresponsibility WAS just as bad with Bush. Sorry you don't like facts that counter your god worship of Bush. I've criticized Obma plenty, have you with Bush? No.

    YOU and your kind that only blame the "other" side are the problem. The Dem/Rep duopoly needs to be done away with and if your too ignorant to realize that YOU are the problem.


    No, there was NO systemic discrimination in the Mortgage industry other than the discrimination thats necessary for lenders to remain in bussines.

    What's your proof of Racial Discrimination ? The Boston Fed report that was ordered by Clinton that was filled with glaring mistakes ?

    That didn't take into account the lenders net worth, their job history, THEIR CREDIT ???!!

    Ricky Danger's ( my new nick name for Clinton ) economy was, again the result of a couple of bubbles. The Stock Bubble and the Housing Bubble.

    Bush inherited the Collapse of Clintons stock bubble and the effects of Clintons Sub-Prime Housing Bubble as his Presidency wrapped up in 2008.

    To you that means Bush was a horrible President. To the rest of us, who are completely capable of intelligent objective analysis it means he had to offset the failures of his predecessors trickery and incompetence.

    In retrospect it would have been far easier on your average American if we hadn't elected such a low life in 1992.

    LOL I see, so when Bush inherits something, it isn't his fault, but if Obama inherits something its his fault. Got it, what a partisan hack you are.

    No Bush was a horrible president for other reasons. However, he and the GOP COULD do something about that if they wanted to. They just wanted to focus on Iraq, flag burning amendments and anti-gay marriage amendments instead. Go cry me a partisan hack river.

    Yeah, because the GOP can do NO wrong in your eyes. You are indeed part of the problem with this country.

    I've clearly stated on this forum multiple times that Barrak DID inherit the effects of the collapse of Clintons mandated Housing Bubble.

    But C'mon, it's been 5 years. The excuses and blame are just Childish.

    The least of our electorate thought it a wise decision to elect a incompetent to deal with a collapse that was so systemic and so entrenched into the markets that it had world wide implications.

    And he did a disasterous job. He made it much worse.

    What did you folks expect. Obama was a big part of the sub-prime bubble before he ever entered the Senate.

    He used to sue banks for " discrimination " as a plaintiffs attorney in Washington.

    The GOP ? No they're not perfect, but blame them for what they're repsonsible for.

    He also inherited Iraq, Guantanemo, Afghanistan, the job loss due to MANY reason, etc.

    I like how you left those things out and Bush IS responsible for BOTH Iraq and Afghanistan as it was HIS choice for all of them as well as the spending and government increases. He also wasted time on flag burning amendments and anti-gay marriage amendments instead of focusing on the housing market as you claim. Sorry, but you cannot ignore those factors no matter how you want to spin everything on Clinton.

    Clinton, Bush 2 and Obama have been lousy presidents. At least I can admit that, you cannot fathom anything being Bush's fault.

    This conversation really isn't going anywhere. If, as president, he isn't able to get past a little bit of name calling, he isn't a very effective president in my opinion.

    Do some people have irrational opinions of the president? Absolutely. But it seems to me that you are implying that those irrational opinions are an underlying factor behind all Obama opposition and the GOP's noncompliance. That's where I completely disagree. Let's not pretend that Republicans are just going to jump on board when it comes to things like raising taxes, amnesty, or gun control.

    That says volumes. Their lack of response illustrates clearly Obama has failed miserably, and for that they have no defense.
    Your comments are so obsurd, this liberal has nothing to say to you.

    Another strawman. No one said he couldn't get past it. This is about how he was treated, and being discussed not by him, but us.

    I'm implying nothing. I'm stating clearly that we went to nutterville the second he liked he might win. We didn't with any other white president. Bush had to start two wars before that happened. Clinton had to actually sleep with an intern and lie. All Obama had to do was look like he might win.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    If it doesn't really have implications for his presidency, then I don't really care. I'm sure there are a minority of people with irrational opinions of him due to his race. It may get media attention, but that doesn't exactly make it important. To me, its just noise. If it makes you feel any better, anytime I run across these people in person, I put them in their place and move on from it. And I don't even like the guy.
