Where Were All You People In The Last Oh Say . . .20 Years?

Where were you  when President Reagan deregulated our jobs and allowed American businessmen to relocate overseas?  Where were you when the Savings & Loans banking commerce was deregulated?  Where were you when all the banking statues were deregulated by the both Bush administrations?  Where you when we were lied to about WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION?  Where you when our government lied to Saddam Hussein  . . .  so he would allow us to put WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION on Arab soil.  You know we told him we would give him Kuwait if he would help us when the I. Kumani was in power ???

 

And you think Obama is a problem?  You think Obama is dangerous?

Peace

Well said LivingWell, I was a republican my hole life, but to tell you the true it wasn't Bush who change my mind is the rest of this Republicans the claim to care about America but them again majority of there company's are in India, Taiwan, and China I laugh when they call them selfs the jobs creators job creators over seas that is and what is going on with the fact they don't feel like paying taxes how in the world can a country survive with no revenue? Last year (2012) was my first time voting Democrat and to tell you the true I'm going to stay the way cause I really believe in freedom and I still believe in America and the only answer for the States can have a future is Democrats ...

I believe in the right of choice and freedom to make it, your facts are bias, because the deregulation of the S&L's were from Democratic controlled House and Senate, the Democratic Keating five, and actions Speaker of the house Wright was major factors in the down fall of the S&L's.
If the Republicans lied about weapons of mass destruction, so did the Democrats, because they also supported military actions based upon the same intel.
I spoke out when the Republicans along with the Democratic Senate voted for the war powers act.
At no time in my life have I felt that this government is moving away from the US Constitution like under this administration that wants an imperial government with an imperial leader.

I pay my taxes just like you & work. But what all you unloved folkes talk about is how everyone has to foot your dreams. Whether those dreams do anything for anyone else or not. We are a total country of workers & people with dreams ready to work for them. We do not need Tea Party politics any longer. Your country has changed and the people who are not afraid to stand up for what they want are leading it now....Sorry for you guys the rest of the country does not agree with you.While the R party had to change their name to GOP because of the failure of trickle down economics, 2008 Stock Bomb Out, and wars that have no basis, and killing Americans under false pretenses with just for profit wars!(my family & friends gave their lives on that lie)You arm chair politicians should be out there right now in the lines our Veterans have to stand in for help, medical, mental and everything else. Walk in my shoes, shoulder my human loss in this lie...Stop hating on the rest of us out here because you cannot send your child to school...well a LOT OF US HAD TO FACE THE FACT THE WHOLE TIME RONALD & gEORGE W were shipping our jobs accross the pond, fighting & killing the one man who helped with Iran when we asked for it.I know you guys had your heads in the sand. Or you cannot even focus on reality when it smacks you right in the face. The American people said NO...that is your answer, okay?And if that don't make the case. You check the congressional record when both were in office....Can You Say Saving & Loan?? They with the help of a R congress shot down all the laws governing mortgages, banks, investment banking, and tried to destroy every union in America. Unless you are filthy rich or close .why are you even trying to defend this muck you are talking.... No one who REALLY Loves America agrees with this Romney thinking...He sounded a lot like Ronald R come to think of it.... Have a Beautiful weekend!!! Hugs, LW

LivingWell, I challenge you to name just one president from the past 125 years that has not screwed the United States and its citizens in some way or other. Ike comes the closest, but even he screwed us. However, the name of this particular experience is "I Believe Barack Obama Is Dangerous For This Country," Not "I believe GW Bush was a bad president" or "I think Ronald Reagan made some huge mistakes." This group deals solely with Barack Obama.

Barack Obama - The man who has allowed the federal government to more than double the already record debt. At this point, the federal government has committed you and me (and out children and grandchildren) to *unfunded* liabilities of nearly 125 trillion dollars. That's over 1 million dollars for each and every taxpayer in the United States! Yet what has Barack Obama done to stop the spiral of government spending? Oh, that's right - He stopped the White house tours and then decided to take his wife, daughters, mother-in-law and niece to Africa to the tune of 60-100 millions of our dollars.

Barack Obama - The man who right off the bat went around the world apologizing for the United States. The man who has made the United States the laughing stock of much of the world, to the point where the president of Russia virtually laughs in our face!

Barack Obama - The man who continues to send billions of you and my money to governments and countries that hate us and provide funding and cover for terrorist organizations that would do us further harm.

Barack Obama - The leader and commander of our military who seemingly ignored the fact that our facility in Benghazi was being attacked. The one who ignored the Libyan leadership who told u right off the bat that the action was a terrorist attack. The one who continues to ignore the fact that 4 US citizens were cut down during that attack. The same man who, for weeks, lied to the country and to the world by calling it a spontaneous action in response to an anti-Islamic video...and even paid over $60,000 to make and broadcast a video that perpetuated that lie to the Islamic world. All this because he had previously intimated to the American Public that he had anti-US terrorism taken care of and if he called the Benghazi attack "terrorism" in those last week before the 2012 election, it would possibly affect his support and perhaps the outcome of the election. And who is no doubt responsible for the virtual sequestering of those who survived the attack, thereby blocking off information needed by congressional investigators.

Barack Obama - The man that, instead of calling for a congressional investigation, allows the Attorney General, his close buddy, investigate himself! The man who lets the Attorney General perjure himself in front of a congressional committee with no consequences.

Barack Obama - Under whose watch the IRS was directed to single out conservative people and groups for close scrutiny and worse: To backlog the applications of over 40 groups seeking nonprofit status simply because terms such as "tea party" or "Liberty" were present in their applications. Some of these groups have been waiting over 2 years for approval, while groups with extremely liberal philosophies are approved in as little as 11 days!

Barack Obama - The man who, in numerous precincts in Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania received more votes than there were registered voters, and where the opposition got NO votes whatever.

Just say the word, LivingWell, and I would be happy to continue. But right now, I need to take a blood pressure pill!

I was almost okay with everything you said once you brought up the Benghazi scandal I al ready knew you are one of those Fox News Republicans and let me tell you your Republicans party ain't going to win the presidency if you keep cutting taxes for the 1% percent I don't have nothing against the 2% or 1% percent but I think is fair the they pay their taxes . I don't want them to help the poor that's not what I'm asking cause the is Socialist but they do have the right as a American to do their job and pay taxes here in the States.. Are biggest debt is cutting taxes for the rich ..

Nymph4l1fe, I'm just curious how the administration's failure in regards to the Benghazi attack makes me a "Fox News Republican." Are you telling me that our facility in Benghazi was not attacked on 9-11-2012 and that Fox News made the story up? Are you saying that 4 of our citizens were not killed in that attack? That military response on our part was available and not told to stand down? Am I missing something here? That the administration did not lie to us by demanding it was the anti-Islam video that sparked the "demonstration" that killed our ambassador and three other US citizens?

And let me tell you, friend, I don't think there is a Republican around that is fit to be president. Nor do I think there is a Democrat that could fit the bill. No, I am not a republican.

I don't recall saying anything about taxes, but since you decided to mention them...is it not a fact that the top income 1% pay 33.7% of the income tax collected by the IRS? That the top 5% pays in 53.8%. And the bottom one-half of the income ladder of American taxpayers pays in a total of only 2.25%. Don't blame me for those numbers, they come from the US Treasury Department. Personally, I am way below any of the high level income brackets, but I don't feel that less than 6% of the taxpayers should be required to pay over half of the cost of running this country. (Well, actually, the government is spending so much more money than it takes in that we have to borrow 47% of what the government is spending.) So why is it you feel that the top 2% are not paying their share? How about the nearly 50% of taxpayers that pay no income tax at all?

Y'know, you and I may never be big-shots with 7-figure annual incomes, but do you think it is right to punish those who succeed in life by taxing their success? What does that do to the desire to succeed? "Oh, I want to make a million bucks this year so I can still end up with the same net income as someone that makes 100 thousand." Great encouragement for someone to excel in their profession!

One problem, American military retired say there was WMD in Iraq. They saw them and I believe them. I have a problem with Obama relationships with the wrong people that do not have our country's best intrest. I have a problem with a person that had to be told that his preacher of 20 years was preaching hate. He had to be told to distance himself from his religious advisor. Somebody that has no voting record on contraversial issues, he didn't vote that day. Our government has never been able to run anything successfully without screwing it up and Obama wants gov to run everything. How can this not be visable to people.

Obama wants gov to run everything.

Hey, hey,
a medical insurance for the poor American people
is not everything
this is just standard
for industrialized nations.

The U.S. has the strongest economy in the world,
so why is it a problem
to share it
with their own
citizen?

Thank You for readimg & commenting my story.** It is greatly appreciated! Hugs, LW

So very well said LW!...but sadly your not dealing with rational people. These are folks who are bent on believing delusions the republican party sells.

They would not know real socialism or marxism if it slammed them right in their 2 faces! Gosh I wish Obama was really a socialist or even a communist....that would be an improvement, so go ahead right wing nut-jobs and call me a socialist marxist if you like, even though you have no idea what one is...It will be only complimenting me, so go ahead make my day!
Anyway for the record one can't reason with fools, so I don't even try.
End of comment.

Far too many want the government to be their nanny ....."DEFEAT OBUMMER"

Agreed.

I was here voting AGAINST Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II

Well I know that everone is having a bad ime right now....but Obama did not create this problem. Why do you always act like he did this???? <br />
Your republican party did this to the American people. <br />
Obama did not say it would be done in 4 yrs!! In fact he said over & over in his last election that none of this could be completed in just four years..... so what is everone so messed up about???<br />
Obama never lied to you....The Republicans have lied to you over and over again and you folks still act like a fist battered & beaten, scared to death wife...saying..just hit me again I still Love you Daddy...I won't call the police on you.<br />
Put Romney in office & the rest of your jobs will be going overseas...BET! It won't just be a pay cut, baby.**<br />
Hugs, LW

What a bunch of BS, you say; "Obama never lied to you", you much be living in a word of denial, selective thinking and confirmation bias.

Qweet you took this story the wrong way.... I am a strong Obama supporter...maybe you should read this story again??!!

I understood it.

I don't attack you
but the republicans.

Where were you <br />
when President Reagan <br />
deregulated our jobs <br />
and allowed American businessmen <br />
to relocate overseas? <br />
<br />
Where were you <br />
when the Savings & Loans banking <br />
commerce was deregulated? <br />
<br />
Where were you <br />
when all the banking statues <br />
were deregulated <br />
by the both Bush administrations? <br />
<br />
Where [were] you <br />
when we were lied to <br />
about <br />
WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION?<br />
<br />
----<br />
<br />
Republicans don't need <br />
to give answers<br />
to problems they have created.<br />
<br />
Because as long as their bank accounts<br />
get filled<br />
everything is fine to them.<br />
<br />
Even if that means<br />
that people get killed,<br />
but a war is a good reason<br />
to sell weapons.<br />
<br />
And republicans have friends<br />
there.<br />
<br />
And if nothing helps<br />
they say<br />
that the old<br />
founders of the U.S.<br />
wanted that<br />
by interpreting the constitution<br />
in a way<br />
they need.<br />
<br />
I bet Barack Obama was poorer in the age of 20<br />
than Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan was.<br />
<br />
So who made the American Dream?<br />
<br />
Rising up from bottom?<br />
<br />
But racists can't accept that,<br />
they just feel hate, anger.<br />
<br />
I hope you get cured.

You never know...but the same people you meet on the way up that you overlook, ignore, use prejudice & any other negative you need to keep your bipolar views about the real world are the same people you will meet on the way down....just make sure you kolks do not ask for any assistance or hand outs like tax breaks, universal healthcare, special freebes because of your social status... like RR & his wife.... Peace

Well put... well received.

bitlord...If you care to go back to walking and want to pay 10.00 for a loaf of bread...there are plenty of countries that will be happy (well, maybe not happy), to have you. <br />
Because one person changes his story ( and we really don't know why), doesn't mean that it can be proved one way or the other. We do see it can be a big money grab for a lot of the proponents of the theory. <br />
It is a fact that at this time of economic crisis, we really don't need more taxes and regulations to stifle more, of what is a struggling economy.

Hey, Nobrainer, did you figure out today that your hero Bjorn Lomborg has ABANDONED the false claim that there is a "climate change hoax"?<br />
Hmm?<br />
Did you figure out your bullsh!t claim that global warming 'scares' have raised prices is now revealed for a LIE?<br />
Hmm?

Whoa,<br />
That sure was a long list, I think fox had Glenn and Sean spill this crapola over on us before, Puck1.

From Yahoo news today...Buffett is a value investor who likes to buy quality stocks at rock-bottom prices. His real goal is to build more and more operating power for Berkshire Hathaway by owning stocks that will generate solid profits and capital appreciation for years to come. When the markets reeled during the recent financial crisis, Buffett was stockpiling great long-term investments by investing billions in names like General Electric and Goldman Sachs.

So you're saying Warren Buffet is a smart business man?

I would like to add to the last comment that becuse oof the Green Energy spoof and the Cap and Tax scare AND the Global Warming scare, that the price of nearly everything we use on a daily basis has gone up. (Really helping)<br />
This all seems to be a dog and pony show....handing you a dime with one hand while picking the dollars from your pocket with the other.

Sounds like livingwell has that creed of "To each according to his ability, and to each according his need" down pat. That seems to be throwing rocks from a glass house.<br />
In as much as Obama lowering taxes, after he did his charade of giving me more, I lost $13.00 a week from my check. Gee Thanks !!<br />
In as much as big money backing Obama, you got that right, and you look what he doing with that influence. I don't think you are seeing him giving very much away to help the common people. Nope he just uses that influence to make the bed a lttle softer for himself. Do you really think he got all that money by being a good guy? Get real ! He is just his own lobbist !!

Oh dear. Product of a public school I presume.

So your father was greedy enough? Now you can follow him with no doubts. Hopefully God is going to teach you some lessons.

The facts that you speak of humans as products marks you.

Did you know the time in Germany with the holocaust?

People got numbers on their arms, like products. Want to talk about it?

Did you know Hitlers catch phrase was FORWARD. So now you are saying TX sooner was comparing the holocaust to this. Give me a break.

I knew sooner or later your silly, angry, personally defunct views would truly surface. Your silly attitudes get people hurt. Your family is no better than anyone else's. You know it is a silly conversation when a person has to re-route themselves back 100 years ago. You weren't even here, if it was so great why did the whole system crash(businessmen commiting suicide all over the place???? 1920's-1930's)Your freedom stops at my doorstep. You are the ones who sound like NAZI Commandos...hMMMMMMMMMM could it be that's why we don't want you running around with guns? Fascism is what we actually hear when you guys start wining and complaining. You are not the majority, thank God!!!. And you never will be, never again will we allow Hitler lovers in power. We saw what happens when you let people who have personal axes to grind in power. They just protect their group and kill everyone else. That is all the rest of the US hears when you speak...you really just do not get it do you??OBAMA has lower the payroll tax levels for 95 % of Americans - you must the 2% percent that must finally start paying your way. What no more tax shelters??? Really, how many steaks can you eat a day???HAAAA HAAAA HAAAA I really feel Sorry for all this bleeding heart for yourselves and nobody else, - - yeah right****Just like you tell everyone else . . . whine by yourself ... change has come finally. You can no longer make 95% Americans go for your conman, dog eat dog tactics anymore. We got a real man in the White House now! You'll get a chance again next election, but this time we're going to put a Lady Hispanic in office.That will really get your attention, HUH???Big Love and Many Blessing,Livingwell

The policies to which I refer as "working" was near 100 years ago and we aren't paying for those. Progressives began taking over again by the name Hoover. He was only elected because he was a Republican and after Harding and Coolige any Republican would have won regaurdless of thier bieliefs. The rest has been a visious cycle of progressives followed by not as progressives. The least of the evils durring that time has been Reagan by signing the tax cut which allowed economic growth for two decades. Increased government spending followed by deficites has brought us to economic ruins one again. Frankly, I don't give a damn what someone else told you as to what poilicies made who rich or who else richer, I give a damn what makes sense for me and my ability to put food in the mouths of my wife and two children and I can tell you as well as any non Socialist, government aint the answer. Never has been, never will be. The individual is all that can do it.

You are the one debating. If those policies worked so well - why was the whole worldwide financial system failing ? We will be paying for your so called "working financial policies for the next 150 years. I have worked for banks all my life just about, dears. And, when those top executives say those policies only made the rich, richer . . . I have to believe them and not the armchair, knee jerk reactions I am hearing on this point. I love a goooooooood debate. But, outside of the sour grapes I'm hearing on this storyline... There just isn't very much you guys can add. Blindness and a huge amount of sandcastles is what it amounts to in the end.We don't wish to punish anyone because they have money. But, what we find is that those who "have", have forgotten that - " TO THOSE WHOM MUCH HAS BEEN GIVEN...MUCH MORE IS THEN EXPECTED OF THEM"We have people in this country who spend a half a million on an raincoat rack and a rainstick stand while are people dying, starving, homeless, and jobless. Then they wonder why they can't find cure when they are dying? And, all the money in the world will not save them. There is a price to pay when you can look at other human beings and not see, hear or help. Your side never sees this. That is why you guys COULD not see AND CANNOT SEE why OBAMA WON BY A LANDSLIDE. The richest man in this country and few around the world backed OBAMA, the grassroot Americans of every race, color, creed, religion, and financial status backed him and voted for him. He didn't have to steal the election. Americans put him in office, especially the silent majority that swings every election ever held in this country.Now if all these things you say were really true, why did solid republicans leave by the droves to vote for him. They were not embarrased and said in public why they could no longer be a party to the actions of the previous administration. Their list was pretty deep and awful. Only one or two democrats went over to the republican side.I'll be back when I hear something that sounds human and is about bringing everyone to the table. Not a select few. Those times are gone with wind. Much Love and Many Blessings,Livingwell
