    Opps and you can't use the war excuse either. ;)


    I thought it would be the nice thing to do in providing a little music to accompany the reading for our so-called conservative friends still clutching the GOP/Small State brand. Of course, they'll show everyone at the next election, or the next, or the next, or the.............

    Wkmac , nice topic but try this question .....

    Even more specific which goes to your point, who added more pages to the Federal Register and/or the Code of Federal Regulations? And not all regs. in the Federal Register are codified in CFR (fail to meet criteria of Title 5 Administrative Procedures Act) and yet are sometimes still enforced as if so. Federal Register may be a better judge on that point.

    Truth is both Bush and Obama are utterly distasteful and often for the same reasons. And I see nothing as it relates to 2016' that suggests anything will change either regardless who wins.

    realbrown1 Annoy a liberal today. Hit them with facts.

    You are so smart.

    Oh wait, no you are not.

    Quite the opposite really.

    What a waste of a thread.

    Ah, come on, be nice. It's just a case of panic and fear.

    Oh wait, that's what Trump plays on. Never mind!

    It's OK - he wants to be Trump.

    There's a fallacious argument against liberals that they're 'jealous' of the rich, and RB1's arguments are the obverse of that coin.

    Now, if he actually got what he wanted and had to reap the 'benefits', that's another story altogether.

    Food for thought .
    The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis updates quarterly a set of nine easy-to-understand charts that demonstrate how Obamanomics, the economic policies of the Obama administration, have failed to produce real economic benefits for the American people.

    I guess that everyone didn't see the fine print on the left bottom of the charts that listed the source for the graphs .
    They were all gov't agencies .
