For the lede to this post, go read this, right this minute.
I am here to tell you that YES, WE DO.
What this image shows is one VITAL truth. While George W. Bush was President and had a Republican Congress, the DJIA and the S&P were BANGING. Please recall that shortly after Bush took office, the Religion of Peace flew some planes into some stuff and slaughtered some folks. Immediately following those PEACEFUL acts, we went to WAR in two countries.
Still, the market rebounded quickly from those happenings.
The reason that those numbers are OFF from when Bush took office is because Democrats took control of Congress in January 2007. What was the DJIA in January 2007? PLUS 1977.94 since January 20, 2001. Right around 12.5k. What was the S&P when Dumbasses took Congress? PLUS 87.95. Around 1409.
Of course now, the market has utterly uncoupled from reality to simply try to milk more money out of a rapidly collapsing world economy. Folks, there are no good signs at all about the future of your wealth.
For further proof of how we would LURVE to return to those FAILED POLICIES of the Bush era, let's check in on the employment situation.
When George W. Bush took office, the unemployment rate was at four point two percent (4.2%) but it was rising because of the Dot Com bubble bursting. The highest unemployment in any demographic was teenagers at a WHOPPING 13.8%. (Just so you know, TODAY it is over 26%.)
Oddly, across ALL demographics, the employment situation stayed the same throughout the Bush presidency. Granted, unemployment was rising from 2001 until 2003, but that was mainly because of the RECESSION that Bill Clinton left the country in when he left office.
In January 2007, when the Democrats took office, the unemployment situation was VIRTUALLY UNCHANGED from 2001!!! However, in the time since the Democrats took Congress and our country elected the dumbest piece of shit to ever be elected in history, unemployment has DOUBLED. Yes, it is right at ten percent now.
Housing? Worst in decades now.
Businesses? Getting the Hell out of this country.
Medical Services? Scared to high Heaven.
Insurance Agencies? They are not doing ANYTHING at all, other than cutting services and plans.
Construction? DEAD. Not to return for many years.
Gold? Sets record highs DAILY.
Folks, for anyone to actually want to press forward with the Democrat policies that have been in place since January 2007, THEY MUST BE SUICIDAL.
Plus, today there is talk about "Obama Tax Cuts." The "Obama Tax Cuts" are the Democrats simply reauthorizing the tax cuts instituted by George W. Bush. Continuing the same RATE is NOT cutting taxes, morons.
Plus, Boehner says that the Congress is not going to take it up. I agree with Boehner, if the Democrats LOSE Congress in November, which by all metrics, facts, and data, they should, they will actually attempt to pass tax HIKES in their lame-duck session to bring about further collapse of the economy to give them something to campaign on in 2012. Hide and watch.
The Barrystream Media is in FULLBLOWN Democrat campaign mode trying to serve their democrat masters. They want Barry to return to his "Glory Days?" Can ANYONE tell me when Barry Obama was anything other than the headliner at the Moronpalooza? Glory days, FUCK ME RUNNING.
Here is Barry doing exactly what the media wants him to do, return to his glory days. This is from yesterday.
That is his glory days, folks. NOTHING. Not one damned thing did he say. So, he did what they wanted him to do.
Why the Democrat media only can screech about RAAAAACISM when they talk about Republicans. Completely white, all white, majority white. Take a gander at Barry's latest concert. FAH REALS, you simply cannot make this shit up, y'all. If you could not see things with your own eyes, and decipher them with your own brain, you would be a Democrat.
Oh, by the way, you wanna see the hard-hitting interview that Rolling Stone did with Captain Moron?
I cannot continue, this just makes me ill that every person on Earth doesn't see this. That is UNpossible for me to comprehend.
Please take the time to comment.
