    Congress has not had the balls to declare war since WWII...

    And that's the problem.

    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.

    My question is why did the GOP (you know the people you seem to worship) do NOTHING about this? They have had the reigns as well. Funny how you blame "progressives" yet have nothing to say about the GOP that have stood by and let this happen as well.

    BTW, this isn't due to "progressive" ideas alone. This has also been done by greed, outsourcing, and the worship of the almighty dollar.

    My parents remember a time when companies didn't care JUST about profit, but also what was good for America and the American worker. Those times are long gone and what we are left with is the wake of greed. Greed isn't exclusive to one party or political ideology.

    You can disagree with me all you want, but that is the truth and it seems most conservatives and liberals alike want to blame the other without looking in the mirror.
    Great post, everyone should read it again.

    What's laughable is watching you and others try to dance around the FACT that Bush made the call to go into Iraq. Why do you hate the FACT that Bush made the decision to go into Iraq?
    Bush with the Democrats support of-course.

    The " war for oil" and "lies about WMDs" was your party's manufactured narrative.

    A false premise that I don't buy into.

    Its good to know that History is slowly doing away with the idiots contentions.

    History won't be so kind to Obama, thanks to people like me being intent on seeing that through.

    The difference between me and you is I won't have to tell one lie or have to rely on warmed over manufactured narratives to accomplish my goal.

    All I have to do is simply, tell the truth.

    Don't promote the oil one myself, but in the words of Straffor, Bush told the wrong lie when he made the WMD claim, as it was too easily shown to be a lie.

    No it's not, it's drek.

    Here's some GOOD ADVICE and I urge you and Extra to consider it.

    First there is THIS truth. The only thing Consistent in this World is Change.

    Now the advice,

    Instead of whining, living in the past or worse, relying on a corrupt Government entity to force " equity" amongst their citizens, or to pass STUPID policies that drive out Private Markets, ADAPT with the changes.

    Detroit's an excellent example. With a OBVIOUS change in markets and economies going on around them, they dug in and put the economic policies of the 50s, 60s and 70s on a continuous loop.

    Puting their trust in Government and Unions.

    No, it's really good. Like the opposite of the assumptions you just made about what I believe.
