Nah. For the first six years of the last administration things were swell.
Unemployment less than 5%, stock market above 12,000, very little inflation,
24 consecutive quarters of economic growth (as much as 5.5%), and so on. All
this in spite of two wars, Katrina, and 9-11.
Then the Democrats took over the Congress and things went to hell.
The Democrats continued to control Congress for the first two years of the
Obama administration and gave us a $1 trillion "stimulus," Obamacare, "Cash
for Clunkers," and other explosives.
I miss Bush.
Well then I am a PLLFC ...Fiscal conservative. Let's discuss what can be
done together, rather than telling the other side to play possum. I
think that getting people to work and getting the economy humming is
first priority. Then simplifying the tax code and raising effective
revenue (the US has just about the lowest revenue as % of GDP in the
world, I just read somewhere - have to get details, and don't know
whether that includes state taxes).
Off to dinner at the Dutch House Tavern ... Keep the economy going ...
Han, I have friends who are diametrically opposed in our political
beliefs and we call each other horrible names and trade extreme insults
but we're still friends because we believe you're free to believe what
you wish and don't try to force our beliefs on one another. It's the
same way with religion, I actually had a dear friend who was a Moonie. I
know a number of Muslims but can't claim to be a dear friend to any
of them because of their tenets. ^_^
