I doubt you would know a fact if it slapped you in the face. You haven't cited any in your OP. All baseless claims. Pure imagination.

Is $5 T new debt, real unemployment at 14%, virtually no growth, looming massive tax increases (ObamaCare), etc. what you call "cleaning up?" He has cleaned up nothing, but made that mess worse.

And if you want to know who created that mess, read this:
Articles: So Obama Inherited a Mess, Did He? From Whom?

That article is the best explanation I have seen yet for what caused "the mess." And it was not created by George W. Bush or the Republicans, for that matter.

But, I doubt you have the ability to understand the article, based on the nonsense in your OP.

So we weren`t losing 750,000 jobs a month when Obama took office. If a rightwing blogger said so it must be true.

They have complete and utter control over everything and will do anything to keep that power.
Well, the second amendment might be an obstacle.

I just hope the second amendment encompasses drone repellant.

The collective vs the individual? Centralized autocratic government? Economic and social regimentation?

The Nazis operated under a government of National Socialism. By the way, under the Nazi regime, Germany had universal healthcare.

So, basically my point is... You have no idea what you're talking about.
Germany had universal health care long before Nazi was a word. Germany was also one of the first nations if not the first to institute public education for their children.

Always nationalist, and setting an example for others.

I would say you could trace it back further, but it has been accelerating exponentially. There are many different avenues, but the fact remains that any CAFR will show controlling share ownership of publicly traded company after company. Then follow that up the food chain to the other article about the study I posted showing those companies owning and controlling 80% of global wealth.

Here is an example of JPM stock ownership.
What is JP Morgan Chase?


Global Inc is alive and well.

Pride in America the Stupid is a badge of admission to the Democrats Delusional Worldview."
