As much as you'd obviously like to pin that on Obama - we all have longer memories than that.
As much as you'd obviously like to pin the Banking Crisis on Bush...that ain't the fact Jack.  While it is true that the Nasdaq parralled the drop of the DowJones, the fact is also that investors saw Obama coming into power and feared that.  It is fear that kills the mind, fear that kills the stock market.  Nonetheless...the fact remains that Obama hasn't done anything to promote a jobs market...he has been too busy playing golf and partying with Hollywood.  Done with him and done with this thread.

I'm amazed at how fast people forget things...  Romney and his party offer even more of the policies that have destroyed this country. It's not a mistake that four years ago McCain got beat by a landslide. He was offering more of what Bush had done and the American people saw that and realized we can NOT do that anymore... here we are four years later and because people are pissed off that this country didn't do a complete turn around they are ready to jump right back on the republican "protect the rich but pretend it's for everyone" crap! It's just AMAZING how fast everyone forgets... and even a little sad... don't tell me the policies aren't working. Things were even WORSE four years ago... Rome wasn't built in a day and this country certainly wasn't put in this situation in four years. Bush had 8 years to completly screw the middle class... wake up people and don't fall for the same old BS! Trickle down economics don't work... never had and never will. The republicans know this but that isn't why they do it. It's all about protecting their money and making the middle class flip the bill. Yeah that's real patriotism for you! God bless America... or at least the 1% with the money.

Don't recall ever claiming that.

There's an entire Government report on the actual reasons behind the International banking crisis. Makes for some interesting reading.

Except the employment graph doesn't actually look like that.

I note that you're only showing one year of Bush's record.

Don't bother explaining, though.  I already know why that is.

Nobody is comparing Bush to Obama (as there is no fair comparison), what the argument is about is where the unemployment came from.

The posted employment graph is purported to be comparing Bush to Obama.

Not a valid comparison.  That's all I was saying.

How many people reading this thread do you think believe that presidential terms are only a year long?

Hey man!  Anyone that doesn't like Sesame Street is some kinda commie pinko or goose stepping gestapo pig!  How dare the plastic man threaten the only decent thing that was ever broadcast on PBS.

No, in all seriousness.  There needs to be a public broadcasting channel...I am not thrilled that it has became a left wing mouth piece, but that can be fixed.  It still offers un-commercialized programing, which is a very important thing.  Why does it need to be publicly funded?  So the public CAN have a say in it...which you can by the way if you actually try and don't just flip it the bird and switch to another channel.  There are means to get involved...actually pretty simple means.

Corporate broadcasting does nothing but spin propaganda and program consumerism into the sleeping sheep...and that's the facts jack.

A public broadcasting system is necessary...what is also necessary is to take back the programming and make it a 50/50 proposition.  For every hour of left wing news, there has to be an hour of right....or better yet, how about removing the news and politics and return it to being an educational resource...what a concept!

PBS is a scam. I don't blame BIg Bird, he's just a pawn in their game. The government gives money to PBS to make the shows, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting reaps profits from them.Then CPB  donates the profits back to PBS for tax deduction. They use these TAX LOOPHOLES to buy their CORPORATE JETS!

Does anybody even watch PBS? It was lame when I was a kid 25 years ago, and it's still lame now. What is the point in continuing to throw money at them when no one watches? Why not take that money and fund me, it'd be better spent that way. :tu:

I actually do.... :unsure2: .  I watch Antiques Roadshow, Nova and a few other history type shows.  A lot of times they have painting, woodcarving and  woodworking...which, as nerdy as it sounds :blush: ... I do watch.

It's all good man, now that you mentioned it, I think I've actually watched a few shows on there from time to time, just couldn't remember. Bob Ross painting a couple times, Roadshow also a couple of times, and there used to be some guy who would draw futuristic cities on there or something, was interesting. I also remember watching Wild America when I was a kid with my dad, that was actually a great nature show.
