lame duck president because with a billion spent on the campaign, everything remains
the same - the WH, the Senate and House of REps. Actually I think the GOP lost 3
seats in the senate.
Yes, and the housing bust started with Clinton when he wanted everyone to have the
American dream - a house. So he got the Fanny Maes (Barney Frank who stole millions
from them because he ran them and the Freddie Macks (Chris Dodd who stole million
from them because he ran them) to give out loans w/o checking peoples backgrounds.
The gov't then got the private banks to do the same. People couldn't pay and the
system broke and the economy collapsed but OBY was right when he said the guy in
power at the time will get the blame. He won yesterday because W was in power at
the time and the people still blame him not OBY for not fixing things. Same with FDR
when he couldn't fix things. He kept getting re-elected until he died.
Jon just answered that for me but youre knit picking. He would have created a lot more
jobs than lost at PBS. I worked for Ch 46 in Atlanta. It was sold to the Chicago Tribune and they laid off all management and put their own in. We all got other jobs. I went back
into the gov't and rose to a high grade and retired early but I started over but was still
young enough to do it.
Anyway Ex and Jab, I've really enjoyed this discussion w/o all the insults I usually get.
I saw his nick names. Theyre a lot worse than OBY-lol.
The guys criticizing my threads should have seen his. Talk about propaganda.
he almost singlehandedly and completely ruined another board inside a month....
talk about a partisan hack propaghanda spreading amchine...
Galen is not who you think he is.
Judging by some posts from his past, I am convinced he simply came here to screw with people.
I actually have accused him of something very similar to that in a thread on this board, assuming he was literally taking the stance he was to screw with people, as a human with a brain could not be that foolish.
I can see why it would be fun to not have anyone actually contradicting your points.
There is a difference between that and Voldemort7.... That is a forum member only capable of repeating the liberal talking points and claiming to buy each and every one hook line and sinker while pretending they ar ehis own personal thoughts. Someone that is completely incapable of reasonable thought. One that resorts to name calling when he has lost, and one that shoots down any source of info that isn't "peer reviewed".
I really do think he's that liberal. I really do believe he's a therapist of some sort.
I think he has compulsion toward trying to be the smartest dude in the room. Every one of his posts have a mocking tone used to express his perceived superiority over others.
He's obviously someone of advanced degrees, thus his blind allegiance to every academic. Yet, he fell short at some point in his career and gets desperate when confronted, hense the time he was caught plagiarizing the WH web site and passing it off as his own (a HUGE no no in his line of work and circle of peers).
Best to ignore him really. He ain't going to change, much like folks here who are incapable of treating their political adversaries with respect and dignity.
Understood. I do get what you mean now.
I will most likely just avoid this board again now that he's back. He just makes it no fun to discuss politics, religion, and world events. If I ever get into another climate change discussion where he pretends it doesn't matter that the world has regularly and predictably warmed and cooled for millions of years prior to fossil fuels it will be too soon.
I miss him and liked him. He called me the forum's Historian
on a good day. I'm sure the MOD told him I've been
whacked more than anyone but as I always said it was self defense and usually because of him but he knows his profession.
Back when he liked me I PMed a question about a memory prob I was having. I misplaced
a hundred bucks, my license and credit cards and was losing stuff. I thought I had alzheimers
so I asked him. He said no. I also asked him something about my past.
He gave me some great info and suggested putting my things in a box and even used a
sports analogy about repetition like they do in camp. He said my dreams were good and
I recounciled things with the past. I took every one of his suggestions and still practice
them. BTW, I found that money a year later in an old jacket I discarded. I praised him on this board and thanked him publicly.
Then he zapped me good.
I just couldn't understand how a professional like him could waste so much time on a
message board when most professionals don't have the time.
Ive lurked on here for awhile, but honestly i got the vibe it was just a bunch of conservatives ganging up on the liberals and bashing for the sake of bashing, so i didnt add much. Maybe thats not the case, and ill start to try and add something here. Hopefully there can be some bipartisan debating as well as governing... or we could all just go libertarian?
I hope you continue to post here JAB
