And just why not sir? Just who was steering this ship of state when we corrected course and managed to stave off financial ruin and economic collapse, if only for a time?? And, as you correctly pointed out, without a lot of help from the "opposition" party.
I get a little tired of all the Obama bashing. He has made far far less serious mistakes of judgment and "course steering errors" for our ship of state than our last president. It's mot even comparable in my book. W inherited a budget SURPLUS (for the 1st time in how long???) and within 8 years of poor judgment and Republican policies designed to benefit CORPORATES and the rich, left us on the brink of ruin financially!
Same thing happened in the 1920's under Republican rule. Why anyone thinks the Republicans are better at managing our economy than the Dems is beyond me. The historical facts clearly say otherwise!!
"If you own and run a company what you pay yourself is your business. A CEO is nothing more than a lousy employee; he has no right to collect ten cents more than he is actually worth to a company. The same is true of all the %$#@! blood-sucking corporate employees who sit behind desks happily soaking up the profits! They are the reason that "corporations" as so often seen as crooked. A corporation can't be crooked; it;s nothing more than the words on a piece of paper, some buildings, some machinery, trucks, and whatnot. IT'S PEOPLE WHO ARE CROOKED!"
This statement by Tom is exactly right! Completely accurate.
And the source (root cause) of nearly every other issue/problem we argue about all the time on here!
Look, in my mind it's simple.
Truth is it is we the people that ARE the problem. We need told the truth. But, how effective do you think it would be as an election tactic to tell the "public" (those are potential voters!) that they need to get better informed, actually give a da*n and maybe research, etc, BEFORE making up their minds on issues or candidates?? You know, "hey folks, you're uninformed doofusses being misled by media manipulators and charlatans into voting on the basis of some mythical idealogical "side". An R or a D. It's hogwash!!
The truth is we americans have become like petulant children. Spoiled brats who think we know WAY more than we do. There is NOTHING worse than delusional arrogance and we have it in SPADES! Hence the Trumpster. Con man supreme! I'm so rich and brilliant I can make a deal on our National debt............ meanwhile he won't release his tax return information. You heard it here first folks, why won't he........ because the details will reveal he's a financial fraud. Worth squat!! It's all a financial framework of debt, his REAL value is little. Hence he pays little to no taxes! Hell, he told us....... he said "I'm the king of debt".
I'm gonna jump in that same boat with Mrs. Randall and be called some kind of bad names (like bigot, etc) for this one, but IMO.......I think everyone, and anyone, who has actually VOTED (cast an actual ballot) for Donald J. Trump for President of these United States should be immediately expelled/deported from this Country for a minimum of 10 years or until they have demonstrated some actual human intelligence!
Vote for Trump! make America White again indeed!
Moronic! Might as well vote for Kelly Clarkson, or the winner of "dancing With The Stars", how about (Pat might like this idea) the winner of the Nascar Cup?? Or Gumby?
I can't fathom such stupidity. Why is it the older I get the dumber everybody else is??
Anyway, I found my candidate for President. Someone I can vote for with conviction, who ain't a potential felon or a conman. His name is Gary Johnson. Y'all should check him out. Find out what he's done...... and what he stands for! You know?, Vote on the basis of something other than "reality life". This is real, folks!
What? Stuff what? What are you talking about?
"I was born in Oklahoma,..."
Ahhhhh, now I get it. You should have stated that somewhere earlier. Would have saved me a bit of time reading about your hallucinatory predictions, and weird thoughts on our Country. It's no wonder that most of your comments made no sense. "They's some good folks in Oklahoma but they's all dead!" lol
No problem. Now, how about chiding the folks on the "conservative edge/TP fringe" when they get a little "pointed"? That's happened repeatedly for years on this blog with nary a peep from the RoundUp that I've observed!
(Mrs. Randall excepted, of course.)
But, I'm generally all about lightening things up......... and trying to tell the simple truth about the view from outta my eyeballs. My report so to speak, just like what your newspaper does, you report, right?
Mrs. Randall. That's VERY funny. You think judges wear boxers or briefs under them black robes?
I bet you're right there! Of course I kinda doubt either one of us cares much what someone else that doesn't really know us thinks about our opinions. Most of em can't keep quiet enough for me when I'm in my church anyway. All their human noises drowns out the voices of Ussen's creations.
Tom, Ever watch lawyers work? Or read their briefs?
Incompetence of huge, almost unbelievable proportions is everywhere.
It's in the Courts.
It's in everything.
Why should the "press" be any different?
The one BIG difference these days is the "unfettered" aspect of all the "internet" information. Some news, some opinions, some opinions couched as news, some propaganda, etc........
just a HUGE explosion of information for people to digest and many just do NOT have the analytical skills and ability to judge truth from manipulative bullsh*t.
In a word (2 words) ignorance and incompetence!
It will ultimately bring us down. The only question that seems to remain is how fast!??
Not without caller ID.
"Seems regardless of party, politicians are all cut from the same bolt of cloth."
Can I get an Amen! I know some will disagree but in just 2 more years.......... you can stop letting everybody know you came from well, where you did. Twenty years is enough. Your obligation ended as far as I'm concerned. But, as I said Ron, there will be some that differ!
At some point good citizenship negates the "transplant from..." status and you just become one of us Arizona citizens. Of course I'm more tolerant than some as I wasn't born here either.
Damn parents. :-)
