    But you don't give credence to Obama for the positives in the current economy.
    Such as 4.6% and 5.0% GDP growth in the last two quarters.
    How do you think this 4th quarter will go?
    Our gas war is down to $1.85 a gallon for petrol before food store discounts .

    I've been told primarily by liberals that Presidents don't have anything to do with economics, I guess that's only when an economy is in the dump, and a demo president is in office eh?

    I for one hope the economy is getting better, but it's not because of any of the policies I have seen generated out of this administration. I am sure you'd disagree, so we can dispense with the back and forth....K.

    So, how about it? Are we becoming more selfish? Is this lashing out like depicted in the story a result of people feeling like they are being too tightly controlled? What say you?


    Nah...

    Well, not everyone was a film maker with a camera phone, and "black Friday" had not been invented, women wore dresses and combed their hair to go shopping and the Volkswagen was a cheap little car.

    Now we have have 15-second TV spots demanding you get down here right now for an extreme deal on a garborator and tile grout. We have ugly video games about slaughtering people wholesale and we did not have "Doom" or any games involving the realistic decapitation of humans, even most westerns didn't show us the guy actually get shot.

    War still kind of made sense, music was innocent and about dating and love and blue suede shoes, not about "killin da beyatch" and chanting inanities about blacks vs whites. People still respected multi-national corporations like Coca-Cola and GE, presidents didn't get caught in obvious lies, swarming and flash mobs had yet to be invented and no schools had metal detectors or armed cops in them.

    Yeah a lot has changed...and we allowed it.

    Any time someone says "when I was a kid, people didn't..."

    Yes. Yes they did. People were just as ****ty when you were a kid.

    The reason you don't know this is because you were a kid at the time. You also didn't have internet, so local bull**** like this never made it to your ears.

    Plus the convenience of everything under one roof.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    All of those things were just as awful, or worse, but you were a child and children think the world is a nice place.

    J, you are largely one of those still asleep. You have blinders on and see only the propaganda you want to see. True, you're not a lone, and the other side of that coin is just as blind. But every thing you listed, republicans and conservatives do exactly the same thing. Not seeing that makes you part of 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.
