Let the record show that....it's 10:24pm here & I'm going up to bed. I'll check in the morning to see (hopefully) one of 2 things:

1. An apology from BillM for accusing me of: ..."You do nothing but "rant" on and on the total innocence of your party"....
but not finding ONE example to back up his accusation, which is false.



OR



2. Richard has locked this thread! :lol:


Goodnight all!

I don't care who is in charge!
Well actually I do care I want a Conservative Fiscally Responsible Person who is looking out for the good of this Country rather than their party/buddies!
Cut Spending and Cut Taxes!
You cannot borrow your way out of a problem, only delay the impending doom!
Treat the Federal Budget as if it were your personal budget, live within your means!
Even the ‘biased media’ is starting to turn on the ‘Anointed One’.
Dow at 6400 before it hits bottom.
BHO and the people who voted for this crap will be voted out in short order.
Personal savings rates will go up and the GDP will contract for three more years.
The 1980's and Ronnie R will be cool again!
Party on Dude!

1. See the economy going in the tank and try to do something to stimulate it by borrowing.

2. See the economy going in the tank and allow the "free market" to take its course, i.e., do nothing.

The second is what Herbert Hoover and the boyz did from October 1929 to March 1933, resulting in the highest unemployment and deepest Depression in our country's history.



You're just flat wrong.

Hoover passed the Smoot Hawley Tarriff Act. Which made the depression "worse" then FDR came in with the "New Deal" and the problems REALLY started.



Take a look at the market crash on 1920-1921 and compare that to 1929. The first one, the government did virtually nothing and it lasted one year. The second took the second world war to pull us out.

You can't borrow your way out of debt. It doesn't work.

Let me ask you, are we in agreement that housing prices are over inflated RIGHT NOW?


Here we go again. If Harding (#38/42 in the C-Span presidential rankings http://www.c-span.org/PresidentialSurvey/Overall-Ranking.aspx ) was such an economic genius and fixed the big bad 1920 crash in but a year, how come Hoover (#34/42) didn't do exactly the same thing less than a decade later in response to the 1929 crash? (And it's not an acceptable answer that he was another stupid Republican.) And, if these guys are such economic heroes, how come neither the historians who did the C-Span rankings nor the economists who advised Dubya to throw, oh, $700 Billion at the banks last September hadn't heard of their economic gallantry?

Answer: You guys are smoking some killer sh!t.

BTW, I don't agree that the housing market is overvalued right now. If anything, the oversupply caused by the foreclosures has depressed the market to undervalue.

Those are the same historians the said Lincoln was the best president ever. As far as I'm concerned he was one of the worst. He did more damage to the Constitution than any president before him closely followed by GWB.

And if we can't agree that housing is over valued, then we are diametrically opposed and we'll never come to common ground.

We'll just have to agree to disagree.

As far as the housing market goes I was looking all over the Lisbon, Ohio & Colombiana county area around 3 years ago. After trying to put in a few offers on forclosed homes I gave up on them. The banks or morgare holders had a asking price that was set in stone, wouldn`t take a penny less no matter what type of damage there was. I told the agent I was working with at that time that the lenders must be waiting for something from the government because it just made no sense & I now believe that I hit it right on the head. I have for a long time thought that most things going on have been forseen or created by others that are making the bucks now.

Everyone I know were constantly commenting as time went on that we watching something very very bad. I personally know 5 people who either they, or their wives took classes to be a Real Estate agent, didn't pan out so well.
When I was seeing USED Trailers going for ridiculuos prices that only a (2) person income could swing becuse the normal Raised Ranch was over 300K, we knew this BUBBLE was going to burst.

Peter Shiff called this years ago, he was roundly denounced as a Chicken Little. Those paying attention ( waves at Jpete :))
understood exactly what he was saying. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfascZST ... =1&index=1

PS, We're in the process of trying to get Mr. Shiff to DE-THRONE the moron DODD that helped crush this country.

To be clear, I didn't say housing wasn't over-valued (at, say, end of 2005); I said it isn't now.

If you've got cash, you can acquire a whole lot of property for the buck right now. But having a plan for how to make those assets self-supporting is another thing entirely.

Devil,

Sorry went to bed before you. But to answer your question here's your 3 rants.

1. We're in office because your being punished for uncontrolled spending- What's your party doing now

2. It's all the republicans fault we're in debt- Show where no democrats voted on any bills that got us here.

3. It's all Bush's fault we're in this debt= Look outside BO's biased media and you'll all see we ain't the only ones.

I'm not going thru all the posts to find them but these are your rants when your ask a question you can't answer.
I've learned thru the years to get the facts before discussing a subject and be willing to take blame when you no your wrong which I have when presented with proof. No statement I've made up until now has been proven wrong.

Those are not MY quotes!...Maybe those are your interpretations, but they're not quotes from me. Just find what your alleging & copy & paste them here with the link to the thread I said them in.
(come on Bill....That....." here's your 3 rants" ...BS was almost retarded it was so silly :lol: )

In case you forgot, here's your accusation again:

"Devil,

You do nothing but "rant" on and on the total innocence of your part
y
."

I'm asking you to prove it...or withdraw your accusation.

Yup sounds like my post but that does not support your accusation that I claim the Democrats are blameless, it asks why did the American voter see fit to punish just your party. How does that bolster your accusation? (I don't get it)

BillMarti wrote:.1 day after the spending bill was signed into law...& implying that the Democrats are now engaged in "Wasteful Spending" a fair judgment?

Again, that in no way relates to you accusation that:

"Devil,

You do nothing but "rant" on and on the total innocence of your party."


We don't seem to be getting anywhere here so I think that, since you can't prove your accusation & WON'T withdraw it....this conversation can serve no further useful purpose & is over.

Devil,

Thank you for proving my point you are in denial and you really don't get it. You pick and choose sentences and partial sentences then quote them out of context that is convenient on your part. Your right this time it's over. But I agree to disagree cordially. Thank you for the challenge it has been interesting .
