    If you're a far out Left wing Libbo, sure. I mean, you still think that Bush caused the recession.

    I yam, what I yam and that is all I yam as Popeye said.

    But one thing “I” didn’t say is that bush caused the recession. What I did was call it the bush recession, as it was started on his watch, that has been the way of labeling recessions as long as I can remember.

    What I did say was when bush cut the taxes in 2001 and again in 2003 that imo that exacerbated this economic crisis that we are now coming out of. I am not alone in this thought, in 2003, 450 economist including ten Nobel Prize Laureates urged bush not to cut the taxes. Here is the reason they gave for their opposition.

    (According to the statement, the 450 plus economists who signed the statement believe that the 2003 Bush tax cuts will increase inequality and the budget deficit, decreasing the ability of the U.S. government to fund essential services, while failing to produce economic growth.)

    Kinda looks like they were spot on to me.

    I got so caught up in attacking those who aid child prostitution, I lost perspective.

    Though there is that "do onto others" thingy. I think I'd want to be notified if the NRA started handing out advice on how to use child prostitution to smuggle in firearms.

    You really should get up to date, the Acorn thingy is almost two weeks old,its so old news.The current thingy from faux (at least the one that ended yesterday) to get indignant about was some teacher teaching children to sing verse about the President. Of course if you check in early tomorrow I’m sure faux news will update you on the latest thingy to be indignant about.

    Re: Stimulus funds boost number of federal jobs

    I'm okay with Sunday school songs with the word 'God' replaced with 'Obama.'

    Zum letzten Mal wird nun Appell geblasen!
    Zum Kampfe steh'n wir alle schon bereit!
    Bald flattern Hitlerfahnen über Barrikaden.
    Die Knechtschaft dauert nur noch kurze Zeit


    [For the last time the call will now be blown;
    For the struggle now we all stand ready.
    Soon will fly Hitler-flags over every street;
    Slavery will last only a short time longer.
    ]

    Sorry, wrong era? I've never been good at this socially minded public spirit stuff. My humblest apologies.

    But not, I'm not very disgruntled by it. Still all so focused on the 'child prostitution helpers,' how pathetic is that? Can't I just grow up and accept it?

    Hmm if that is such "old news" then I'm sure that you would agree that Bush is old news also and much of what is going on at this point is Obama's do. After all Obama is current events. Bush is past events right?

    He sure is yesterday’s news and I don’t see anyone getting indigent about him, just posting facts, right?
