    The anti-christ is pro-life? If the beast is about he isn’t pulling the strings of the party that’s trying to save babies from being murdered.

    proof not prove.

    I agree with you here. To put it in the simplest way, Free traders did this.they simply free traded the manufacture , production, product , which is what you sell to other people.Then you have money to buy their product.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Chriscee: >>> They are useless..have no facts…and most likely working for OFA (I won’t tell you what I think those intials stand for…


    You are right, Chriscee. Because I was reacting to the disrespectful way that FITZY (I still can't get over the silliness of that handle) and "Joe", after today, they will be placed on my "Pay-No-Mind" list where they can meet and greet some of the others like ussr666 and Mark2. Two compulsive liars.

    I can refer to them, but I refuse to reply to these jokers directly.

  • Ratboy

    I think I will have to stop with my public service announcements, “IDIOT ALERT”. I have come to the decision because I will not have enough time to issue all necessary warnings as we have now been overrun by idiots! I think I mentioned a while back that dung beetle infestation was a huge concern of mine. It looks like they have now gotten close to being out of control.



    just say you are here ratturd we will not need alerts because when you are here the king of the idiots reighns supreme no warning needed

  • Doug Z

  • usa8888

    Bs–I debunked your posts last night–pls review….

    Bs– I see you need enlightenment based on your total lack of financial acumen:
    1)The economy has been set back by the greatest recession in history and it has been UNIQUITOUS. Further, the right wing GOP has obstructed economic growth operating under the absurd construct that cutting spending is good for the economy and job growth. Blame the GOP.
    2) I have already explained to you that obama has NOTHING to do with gasoline prices. Supply is way, demand way down, and crude down but refineries are gouging the public. There is inverse correlation when it should be positive.
    3) size of budget is not the issue. It was caused by Bush’s unfunded wars, drug program and tax cuts, and the worst recession in history.
    4) unemployment is improving in spite of the backward thinking of the right wing GOP and their effort to kill the economy.
    4)The stock market is at all time highs because of record corporate profits!
    5)Outsanding debt in a recession has nothing to do with anything. It’s a right wing bugaboo for the right wing uneducated..spending must occur….
    6)S&P rating downgrade was CAUSED by the right wing GOP.
    7)Treasury bond yields have nothing to do with anything…
    8)the dollar has strengthened against the Euro, the Yen, and other currencies lately.
    9)gold is bought by suckers on Fox Fake News spurred on by Glen Beck.
    10)NYSE volume has nothing to do with anything
    11) the GOP has hurt employment with their absurd right wing policies…But the Fed and Obama have saved the day and the economy is starting to humm again and as I mentioned, housing prices and sales are way up, captial investment is at multi-year highs, and corporate and consumer loans are are multi-year highs. Car purchases are way up.
    12) the backward thinking right wing lost the election big time and will lose in the future–they are completely out of touch with reality and the American people.

  • usa8888

    Rat–are you going to the FREAK SHOW at CPAC????

  • Ratboy

    Well maybe one more……..IDIOT ALERT!

  • Doug Z

    usa- grasshopper

    Spend, spend, money we do not have. 47% of the money sent is not paid for. What is your guy going to do.
    Raise tax 47%
    cut spending47%
    Split taxes and spending equaling 47%.

    what would you do? this can not go on.
    Interest rates average 2% for the Gov. If it goes to 10% It will be impossible to finance.

    Printing money is what Obama is doing to keep rates down. Laws says has to buy back bonds, What will happen.

  • Doug Z

    It is time to post your reply

    Grasshopper-usa we are still waiting.Please answer.
    Why do you cut and paste , then run
    You did it again , hit and run

    All you do is state stupid post without commenting on questions of your post

    then make fun of Ratboy.

    I would call it stupid , but you hit, run, hide.
