    Hey, I didn't vote for Obama! He's expanded a stimulus bill that has no effect. He has increased spending to a 1.7 Trillion DEFICIT!! We could afford until he got his paws on it. It seems to me they ought to cut entitlement programs since they aren't legal.

And furthermore the invasion has made the region more unstable than stable even if Iraq can stand on it's own. Iran is now the key power player in the region with nuclear ambitions. What part of that don't you understand?
    It's not our responsibility they decided to have a civil war. We are the most powerful nation in the world, why can't we tell a country what they should and should not do? The region is stable. We guarantee it. Iran is more powerful but they are weak as well.

    I could say that preceding paragraph is bullsheet delusion excluding all the facts but I'll just be nice and say time will tell.

    Just keep in mind the following two quotes from the mastermind of the Iraqi invasion to show how naive he was. He reminds me of you.


    "I think they're in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency." -- on the Iraq insurgency, June 20, 2005 Dick Cheney

    It's right up there with this one in regards to Iraq:

    My belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators." --March 16, 2003 Dick Cheney
    What do those quotes have to do with what I said?

    $12T Debt is a problem, but there are always solutions. In our young history as a nation we've had our damn White House burnt to the ground, and yet we came back from it.

    Well the national unemployment was more like the 30-40%, but this is what I was talking about

    13 million people are out of work. Millions of others have had their hours severely cut.
    In Lowell, Massachusetts, once the center of the American textile industry, the unemployment rate is 90 percent. In Akron, Ohio, the unemployment rate is 60 percent; in Cleveland, Ohio, 50 percent; in Toledo, Ohio, 80 percent. There are 1 million workers without jobs in New York City. Every week another 100,000 workers across the country lose their jobs.

    Probably a little bit less. I think 20% is the line people use to exaggerate the recession.

    Sure, sounds good to me. It might be a year or two, but I do believe that number will drop. We'll probably, as a result, be seeing much more foreign companies in America providing jobs.

    I'm not an economist, because I think that's stupid, but I listen to professors and people on the radio talk about it everyonce in a while.
