What a load of crap...can't believe that I wasted 8 minutes of my life seeing that!!

GW Bush is a great President, and if I could vote in the US, I would vote for him and anyday.

Wait, you're kidding me right? 8 minutes? The beginning is dumb, wait until they get to part where they show real statistics. Playing the whole game takes a long time, but along the way I'll admit it's a little childish, but when it gets to the stats. like how the poor get screwed when it comes to taxes and the rich get richer, then it makes you think. Tubbyboeing, why do you have such strong feelings for Bush when you live in Africa? Maybe if you lived here you'd have a different mindset.

I knew this would happen, I knew you guys would get all lazy and quit the game. The beginning, about 10 minutes, is really dumb, wait till' you get to the parts where they bring up statistics, and where the rich men are represented with pig heads. Oh man this game is hilarious, just give it a try, more than 10 minutes. Face it, it's not like you have anything better to do.

L.1011, please stop kidding yourself!! Clinton has done 1 thing!?!?! Please stop making us laugh! What about Bush I's supply-side economics, which was running about $290 billion deficit a year. Then during CLINTON's term, the US produced the longest sustained economic expansion ever! 18 million + new jobs, and at the end a +$236 billion surplus. George Jr. comes in and turns the $236 billion surplus into a $500 deficit, largest EVER. I can't believe people still actually want to vote for Bush!!!!

After all, he was just between 9 and 11 when Clinton was last in office. 9 and 11 is certainly old enough to have formed rational and independent views on marriage and the ideology of Liberalism isn't it?  Laugh out loud


As for the thread at hand... the game was amusing and creative.

Continental,

The economy is not in the gutter like CNN claims it is. After we were attacked on 9/11, after the markets suffered a corporate corruption scandal, and after wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the unemployment rate is falling, and the economy is still getting stronger!

-Weekly unemployment insurance claims have fallen to their lowest level since the year 2000.

-The national unemployment rate is now 5.6%, almost 1% less than it was at it's peak (the peak was 6.3%). The unemployment rate is below the average of the 70s, 80s, and 90s!

-Over the past year 44 of the 50 states have reported the unemployment rate falling.

In addition to that, consumer confidence is very high, new housing construction and homeownership are at record levels (yes, better than when Clinton was in office), inflation is low, and minority homeownership is up over 50%, the highest ever!

The New American is arriving.

Bill Clinton did not start "the longest sustained economic expansion ever." President Ronald Wilson Reagan still holds that title. Secondly, Bill Clinton started a good economy, true, but he then allowed a binge, a bubble, and a burst. He also oversaw one of the greatest recessions of the 20th century, which started in March 2000, almost a year before Mr. Bush entered office. Mr. Bush has restored economic growth, the highest since Reagan. He has returned over 900,000 jobs that Clinton lost to the American people. And here's some FACTS for ya.

January 1994:
Civilian labor force 1994: 128,103,000
Employed: 119,389,000
Unemployed: 8,714,000

January 2004:
Civilian labor force: 146,863,000
Employed: 138,566,000
Unemployed: 8,297,000

During the Clinton “Great Economy” of 1996
Unemployment was at 5.6%
Average wage was $11.82/hr.
Inflation Average was 2.93%

During the Bush “Miserable Failure” Economy of 2004
Unemployment is at 5.6%
Average wage is $15.49/hr.
Inflation is 1.9%

The Democrats say that some 2.5 million or so jobs have disappeared under the Bush administration; they are both right and wrong. They are right in that the statistics showed about 138 million jobs in January 2001, but they are wrong not to tell you about the 2.5 million correction in the worker population figures, which were taken out in the first 6 months or so of the Bush administration.

Even if we ignore that little statistical "Oops,” we can see that in Jan-2001, Total employed was 137.8 million. In Jan-2004, total employment stands at 138.6 million, a gain of 0.8 million jobs. If we add back the 2.5 million error, there has been a net gain of roughly 3.3 million jobs during the Bush administration.
- CFalk, an economist

The value of U.S. stock markets has increased $2 trillion since the beginning of the year.

Disposable personal income is up 5.8 percent at an annual rate in 2003

The U.S. homeownership rate was 68.4% in the third quarter – its highest level ever.

How about that 2.5 trillion that Bush promised not to touch as it was for S.S.??

I see that you're going into past posts and just pasting figures which I believe may be incorrect. I think your stats. are wrong.

I believe statisticly Clinton DID hold the longest sustained economic expansion ever, I'll have to look for the correct stats. from an accredited source, not another post.

Yes, people, L.1011, who hasn't lived a quarter of a century, can tell you right here, that liberals haven't given anything to the U.S. Not a thing. And he would know, having lived through, and knowing so much about FDR, Truman, JFK, etc. Yes, Liberals have done nothing for American. Ask the expert, lil' L.1011, wuderkid.

The fact is, kid, plenty of liberals and plenty of conservatives have done plenty to advance the cause of this nation. If you REALLY believe it's all becuase of what Conservatives have done, I wonder who is telling you such bullshit. Your parents? They, like you, should recheck their history. If that's where you're getting it from, they don't impress me.

For anyone to say only one side of the spectrum has been the driving force, the only contributor, to the over 200 year history of the United States, doesn't understand what the United States, and it's history is about.

But L.1011 will tell you otherwise.

If Bush has created any jobs, then he has fooled you, any jobs he creates are government jobs. Great way to promote the economy!  Yeah sure Might as well give all the tax breaks to the rich again, remember that idea!?!? That worked out well..  Yeah sure

Liberals make contributions every day to this nation, L.1011. That's your problem-you in your years and years of wisdom, don't see that. But one problem is you have a different definition of "liberal" than I do. You try to make it mean anyone left of center, but you use far-left radicals as your main definition. I don't include far-left radicals as being "liberal", becuase they're beyond "liberal", just as I don't consider neo-cons and those of the far-right to be true conservatives, because they're extremists, and not true conservatives.

Anyway, liberals make contributions every day-going to work, serving their communities, working for what they think is right. You don't have to start a war, or pile up billions in debt to "contribute" something to American society, as George W. Bush has done, in the cause of conservatism.

But again, you're the last person anyone on here should listen to on any subject. You don't know beans, and again, for you to lecture me or any other adult on this board about anything is the height of arrogance and ignorance, and everyone should do what I will be doing to you from this point foward-ignoring you.

If I'm going to listen to right-wing garbage and ignorance, I'll debate such issues with grown-ups, who have at least lived enough of a life to really understand what they're talking about.

Until then, make sure daddy tells you what to say on here.

I personally do not want to watch/read/hear the game's storyline, the chances of it being nothing new and overrated are pretty high -- hence boring!

While Clinton did contribute a few things, it's what Bush contributed that makes me so disgusted with the man: a war the world did not want against a country that posed no threat for a reason that turned out to be a great big fat lie.

I would take 10 Democrat presidents who did nothing over Bush.

Continental.....Instead of taking the time and effort to create a game ( I am assuming you created the game, if not excuse me, I will give you credit for spreading it around) that denigrates someone in a humorous way, kind of like the way a bully in school makes fun of others and it is easy to join in...why don't you find a way to express you dissatisfaction with those policies in a grown-up way. I find it funny that this teenager seems to be backing up his statements with hard evidence that you immediately ridicule (in the hopes it will go away, I am sure) when you seem to be unable to do the same. Of course you seem to be a teenager yourself, which in and of itself is not a bad thing.. Indeed many teenagers are right this second breathing hot, dusty air in Iraq, and Afghanistan, as well as Djibouti and the Phillippines and other places, defending your right to make fun of people you don't know and denigrate opinions you have not fully considered.

B757/67 When has the world ever desired a war? How wrong were the French for ridiculing the German war effort of 1939 as the 'Sitzkreig'? They could have rolled over the borders with minimal effort as most of the German armies were either in Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia and pouring into Poland. BUt no, they decided to wait...give the Germans the opportunity to consider their actions, because they had done nothing to the French yet, and forget going to war just because we promised to defend the Poles!!..besides, we can do business with this Hitler chap...we were too harsh on his people the last time, give them a little room! Do you see any similarities between that and this latest war against a people dominated by a ruthless dictator who threatens his enemies? How much longer would we have been able to contain him before we ran out of stamina politically?economically? The Russians and the French were already entering into contracts with the Iraqis. And nothing good cam of this whole thing...Libya would have agreed to open up there weapons programs without any extra prodding because Ghaddafi(sic) is a humanitarian, just ask the Chadians.
Just a thought.

I do agree that many use the terms liberal and conservative incorrectly, but the usage has overtaken the meanings. I am considered conservative byt many, but I look at myself as progressive, even liberal on some issues. The root of a persons makeup is not defined by a one word label, but how they manage to make a living for themselves and their loved ones while contributing to society in a way the encourages progress and balances respect for the rights of others and defending the right to exist in peace and comfort.

Continental this is what I mean. People fall for things pretty easy when they are emotional or frustrated or stressed. In other words, they have no logic and they want someone else to do their thinking for them and then they'll follow the leader as if they mean what they say to them. It's a form of coercion, self-brainwash if I may; this is where the problem begins. Everyone thinks everyone else is talking about what they themselves are thinking. Everyone; including me, you and all respondents to this thread; does it.

Everyone believes in "every story has two sides", we were taught that since we were young. That is only true if both sides have all the info of the other side, which is never the case in real life. Too many folks are oblivious to that, some even deny the existence. Like with the death penalty, you're either for life or death, right? Obviously if they did accept the idea of more than 2 sides, statistically and numerically, their own voice becomes smaller. In any argument, it is best to have a lot of folks with the same voice to win as opposed to many different voices, which is also known as chaos.

Problem: life is chaos! It is the natural human tendency to make order of chaos, but we do improperly. We only order to our liking. This is where presumptions, stereotypes and labels as well as racism and most phobias are rooted. The author of this game is really not helping the predicament; this game is just another oversimplification. Something self-proclaimed liberals and self-proclaimed patriots do all the time.

My experience has showed me there are no such things as liberals, something I wish people adhered to… Insane

I hope anyone reading this understands that I am talking to YOU.

If you want credibility, try listening to Dl021. At least some of the other liberals TRY to provide facts, as wrong as their ideology is.  Big grin

I don't feel to make an argument against your petty rebuttals require facts. I can use facts, but there is no need in this situation. Stop trying to sound like a smart ass, and go to bed. Enough sucking up for your idol (JeffM) for the day!!
