Well the current administration has pretty well destroyed the economy. The dollar has taken a beating all over the world. We have become a huge debtor nation, primarily to China, the price of oil is sky rocketing .... why what else can we expect except higher food prices. We had spent in a manner the last 8 years that even a liberal Democrat would blanch at and thus our children and their children will live in a greatly improvished nation ... and it was not at all necessary. And, no I've not been called a liberal Democrat by those who know me.
Oh puhleeze! Can we kindly stop blaming Bush for every bad thing that's ever happened since the Great Flood? This has been coming on for a while, and I'm sure weather patterns have played a part as well as the gasoline prices.
Ok, so the price of food might soar. Plant a garden and pray for faith for God to provide.
As G. Bush said, “You can fool some of the people all the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on.”
We periodically go through these times, they come and go.
Bush is responsible for the Sep 11 attacks, Oil spikes, Hurricane Katrina, and the Housing Bust?
Btw, more of our debt is held by Japan than China.
There is only one thing to blame on George Bush. He is directly responsible for the election of a Democratic President in 2008. Failure to lead this nation and failure to uphold conservative principles are the underlying cause, because the Democrats have no ideas of their own. They win by the failure of Republicans.
No, not his fault. But he has enough other terrible decisions and policies on his plate to ensure he will be ranked as one of the poorest presidents in US history.
No, a majority of the money borrowed has come from China over the last 8 years. In fact our dept load to Japan has fallen the last three years, but grown sharply to China. Sorry to pop your balloon on that.:tonofbricks:
Actually, the economy has only tanked since we gave the dems congress, two years ago. You have to lie against the statistics to say otherwise.
According to whom? Opinion only.
"The biggest chunk (about 25 percent of the $8.5 trillion total) is held by foreign governments. Japan tops the list (with $644 billion), followed by China ($350 billion), United Kingdom ($239 billion) and oil exporting countries ($100 billion)."
It's kind of hard to plant a garden in an apartment. Nevertheless, God has been providing.
I hear you. We had a tiny garden last summer but it was worthless because of the weather here. My point was instead of blaming Bush for everything, we need to find our own solutions and not rely on the government so much. I'm thinking it's time to get creative about how we get our food besides just depending on the grocery store.
I wasn't around during the Great Depression, but I've heard enough stories to know that people learned to make do or do without.
Wow. Second post and it's all Bush's fault. Of course, the Democrat-Controlled Congress is not at fault at all. They're as pure as the wind-driven snow in all this. Give me a break!
Pray tell...what could a Democratic congress without a supermajority do against Bush's veto?
They don't care about these facts! It must be a democrat's fault somehow.
The Democrats did not control Congress the first six years and during those years the Republican Congress provided no oversight to excesses, constitutional violation. They simply rubber stamped everything Bush wanted. The last two years they have blocked almost everything the Democrats tried to do.
But, frankly I am not happy with either party.
Remember Truman's sign on his desk, "The Buck Stops Here." Same with Bush, though he will never admit it. After all he said, "I can't remember any mistakes.":tonofbricks:
Certainly big business has benefited from the current adminstration's leadership. The rich use more services, pay less taxes, import more goods with little or no duty and get richer off of it compared to made in America.
America has legalized stealing from its own citizens to support other nations.
Universities currently advertise in foreign countries, give foreign students scholarships while American stduents receive less than ever before and pay higher tuition. More money is spent on sports then ever before. Certain universities are spending money to recruit foreign students for their graduate schools and spending zero on recruiting American students for the same schools.
Doesn't matter who holds the bonds and t bills, the Chinese or Americans. In either case, they will only be paid off by inflating the money supply. U.S. money ultimately can only be spend in the U.S. The problem starts when the Chinese stop buying our bonds. i suppose all of you patriots will buy savings bonds to bail out the country . . . the Bush family.
The international value of the dollar is set by the money traders, not the govt.
