    there is lots of truth to this. I ultimately view myself as an independent with fiscally conservative leanings, but when the repubs make hay over a candidate supporting the idea of evolution I just end up tuning anything else they say out. I just can't cast a vote for someone who is going to echo such nonsense, be it blatant pandering or not

    as do all of us. You are angry and lashing out simply because you tried to use a grade school kids tactic and your own trap caught you instead. So move on already.

    Get someone to help you read the chart, looks pretty good up to 2008 and not so good based upon the dollars spent by this Administration. You do understand the components of GDP? Didn't think so, figure it out and get back to me then tell me why there are 3 million fewer people employed today than when the recession began, BLS.gov numbers, after 6.5 trillion was added to the debt? Percentage change means nothing.

    What are you on about? Obviously, percentage change (growth) means percentage change.

    Was I claiming otherwise?

    I haven't decided yet. But the goal would be for it to eventually be eliminated.
    I said that you backed away from providing details and that is exactly what you did. Are you ready to do so at this time?

    As you go through life, I hope you come to the realization that we live in a very complicated political environment and that wearing a label and waving a pennant with the team logo on it matching the one on your beanie is not for everyone. Some people are a bit more complicated that the stereotype.

    Yes. I would opt to eliminate it through the legislative process.

    did you step through my pc screen, and check to see how I was doing, how do you know if I am angry, sad, lashing out?.......more wishful thinking on your part.

    anyone who spends the time reading this thread , will see your MO, and you refusal to answer simple questions with 1 word.

    advice for you;......the constitution haymarket is not your friend, but maybe it could be it you spend some time with it, and the founders.
