    Awesome.... Thanks for sharing.


    The concensus amongst economists is that it started in december of 2007 a full year and a month before Obama took office. So yeah an economy already in recession does have an effect on the current economy. This shouldn't be a hard concept for you to understand. Everything goes in cycles so say the republicans. Now you're talking about another subject we were talking about how one thing rolls into the other. I've seen republicans try to claim Reagan was responsible for Clinton's economy so it seems anytime a democrat does something good its a republicans fault everytime something bad happens its a democrats fault. No win scenarios. Downplay everything.

    Reagan was, The fact that a president takes office has little to do with economic trends moreso than thier actions in thier 1st 100 days.





    I already have shown you in the last post where you called me a basket case. So yeah you'd be the liar.


    Last warning. I have not called you a name other than the "basket cast" comment in which I thought we were joking around, the fact that you are calling me a liar when you made it clear that the internetz is serious business means, I will not tolerate name calling any moreso than you do.


    Last warning.




    Really where am I insulting you? I'm saying you can act better than this



    Irony. Funny.

    Oh FFS give it a rest and get back on topic. There he called you a basket case. Move on and debate the topic.

An overstretched model of communism and a totalitarian government filled with a culture of military cronyism was the real downfall of the Soviet Union.

    But why were they like that?


    I think both countries played the same game against each other, an the freer market society won, no?

    If there was no US, there would be no arms race like there was.....




    They were the very definition of spending money you don't have. Except they didn't see until they were 30 years, and 40 mouths to feed deep in debt. Their money never really existed.


    Sorry, but I got to say, that sounds almost like Obama... (as in the spending now...) oh and bush as well.

    Case in point as I said republicans try to say Reagan was responsible for Clinton's good economy even though Reagan had been out of office for 4 years. So if that's the case was Reagan responsible for Bush Senior's recession?

    Oh last warning so now you're warning me for calling you out on your pot to kettle. You claimed you never called me a basket case and to point it out or I'm a liar. I pointed it out that meant you lied about never calling me it. We were joking around that doesn't give you free reign to call me names. Again I've been the adult here I haven't called you any names. You did lie. So what did that make you that one time?

    That's if you understood what that word means. Another overused word on your part. You can't debate so you pull us off topic.

    Its pretty obvious why the soviet union was in chaos. After a revolution, no established order of sucession from Lenin, Stalin's pushing out of Trotsky, the russians having to deal with Germany and the overexpansion policies its no wonder they were falling apart. If outspending the russians was all it took then every president since Truman ended the cold war

    So in your opinion Reagan had nothing to do with it?


    Really? If the russians did not have to spend money on an arms race, you think they could last a few weeks longer?


    On top of that. Who do you think ended the cold war?

    You just keep jumping around. First you didn't call me names then you did then its tongue in cheek. Again you can't attack the positions you just attack the person I've seen this time and time again. Make a point and actually defend it for once.

    Very little. Again you claimed Reagan ended the cold war almost singlehandedly. If outspending the russians was all it took every president up to Bush Sr was responsible. And yet they lasted more than just a few weeks longer when Senior was proposing the cuts.

    The russians ended the cold war when they fell apart under their own weight. It's not just me that thinks that. If you want some history I suggest reading a few books.

    The soviets operated under a one-party authoritarian system which couldn't sustain itself. Those at the top horded the power while those at the bottom got only the scraps. When Stalin took over the party pretty much was all under one man. When he died they failed to reform themselves.

    I am still waiting for you to show me how you are a centrist..... What are you on about?

    I said "my bad" I didn't think you would have a tantrum over a tongue in cheak comment, but apparently that is what you want.


    It was tongue in cheek. I am sorry you took it any other way, now stop crying about it.
