You've created a false dichotomy. The State does not only represent all things evil, and it was not created solely with the purpose of enslaving other men. Nor is that the only role it plays today. I feel a little bit like you've gone off the deep end.
These are trying times, no doubt - but your faculties are still there I hope.
You'll get no argument from me: A is A.
It does not follow that the solution to all our problems is to destroy the State. What would it be replaced by? How would the world move forwards in a desirable manner from that moment? You've failed to show that the State is only death and destruction, but perhaps you'll succeed in describing how the absence of the State would lead to a desirable outcome? You do see why it is necessary that you do so, yes?
Look to Archaix's post, with a link to CNN report, on the difference between the Carter/Reagan recession, vs. the Bush/Obama recession. It seems that a small minority of economists and business analysts would agree with the claim that Reagan's administration handled an economy that was as bad as this one, started by W's administration. The great majority note that this is the worst economic crisis in over 70 years.
Yeah, the point of argument wasn't how wonderful Reagan was to turn around the economy. The point was comparing the condition of the economy when each president took office. Are you claiming that Reagan inherited a worse economy than Obama? Very few reputable economists or business analysts would agree that Reagan's 1981 economy was nearly as bad as Obama's 2009 economy. But feel free to post a poll of qualified professionals on the matter. Perhaps you can prove me wrong on that point.
Makes for good conversation tho.
No other economy was as bad, and was turned around, than the Carter/Reagan era. In recent history, that is. And the kooks hate it.
Damned Yankee, I don't think anything will shake you in your desire to see what you want to see.
I mean case in point, you thanked 9ball8's post #43 when it is in fact contradicting your argument.
Never mind what the economists say, right? Just stick to your guns and call the other side kooks?
But from a stand point of pure curiosity, I do wonder whether you read Archaix's CNN post, and how much you actually understood of it. I'm curious as to how much your problem relates to impaired cognitive abilities, and how much of it is willful denial. It is a purely academic interest: regardless of the whether I ever find out, its apparent you're not able to fulfill the functions necessary for a meaningful conversation.
Well, now. Smell the coffee.
Reagan did turn our economy around, you can thank him. You wouldn't be able to spell computer if it weren't for his economic policies much less be on one spewing your silly ass shit.
LOL, kooks. What a knee slapper!!
History doesn't lie kooker.
Try reading books and educating yourself. I lived through the Reagan era and he was light years ahead of BO.
AND THAT PISSES YOU KOOKSTERS OFF. Imagine, the old and worn out marxism going down in failure. Again.
Sad. Pathetic. But the kooks repeat it time and time again.
History doesn't lie? ROFL
Are these canned phrases supposed to fulfill your duty to present some sort of evidence for your claims?
Why is everyone else here (well not everyone, there are a couple of others like you) capable of presenting evidence for everyone to consider? All you do is call everyone Kooksters and claim you know stuff. Seriously, I've known sixth graders more able to conduct mature conversation than you!
I know you have it in you, somewhere. I know, if you tried really, really hard... you could go to google, and do a search for the three words 'Reagan', 'Obama' and 'recession'... then browse through until you find someone who agrees with your claims. Then with time, you could master the art of copy and paste, and share the link with us. I know... maybe I'm putting the bar too high for you, maybe its cruel... but sometimes people perform best when thrown in the deep end.
Your whining confirms how completely fucking stupid society has become. You're wet behind the ears and need to get off mommy's tit, open your eyes, not stop sucking leftist cock.
Really, your nothing but a dumb ass kid who doesn't know shit from shinola. You think you know it all but really, you're a stupid ass kid. Deal with it. Dummy.All you do is call everyone Kooksters and claim you know stuff. Seriously, I've known sixth graders more able to conduct mature conversation than you!
Google it yourself you lazy ass kid. I'm not your BO, mommy, or wet nurse. That's the problem with you kook bastards. Completely fricking useless, typical for a lib. Gimmee, gimmee, I want...I know you have it in you, somewhere. I know, if you tried really, really hard... you could go to google..
Look it for yourself you coward. Or maybe mommy can for you?

You know, these leftists have took a serious wussified turn here. They need to get off the tit.
These people are worthless eaters in society. America is fucked.
I have googled, and read on the subject for about 45 minutes. Everything seems to confirm Archaix's CNN report, which he kindly posted for you.
Its quite funny to see people post things for you, then hear you not only whine about how everyone else is lazy, but how those who would have you read what is posted for you or even seek your own sources... are the real whiners!
So I was right, I really was setting the bar way too high for you, asking you to do a search. If I gave you a link to Archaix's post (which is right here in this thread BTW), would you read it? I'm assuming you know how to read otherwise you've been doing a pretty good job guessing what everyone's saying... Wait a minute... that would explain a lot actually...
Here you go, DY.
Now all you have to do is click on the line above. No confusing search engines to use. No pesky cutting and pasting (I know, hard on your hands, I know)...
Just one click and a little bit of reading. Then you can dazzle us with your refutation of the CNN report. We just know you're going to dazzle us! All our love and patience is going to pay off, and you'll make DA proud!
It only makes you stupid.
Really kid? You don't have sense enough to read ALL side of things and draw your own conclusions? You're more worthless than I thought. I was hoping you were half ass intelligent.Its quite funny to see people post things for you, then hear you not only whine about how everyone else is lazy, but how those who would have you read what is posted for you or even seek your own sources... are the real whiners!
Do you own work, I'm not your titty, kid. Sometimes you got to pull it together and be a man.So I was right, I really was setting the bar way too high for you, asking you to do a search.
Do your community a favor. You would be one less kook to worry about.
(Guess I got someone's panties in a wad over this post. Funny it wasnt deleted? Sure got an infraction, from a kook lefty)

if Obama is an epic failure then I challenge those of you who believe Obama is amongst the worst presidents in US history to debunk as many as these facts and figures as you possibly can:
Let's begin with these for instance:
I'll certainly enjoy reading those Siv, but I'm afraid I've had no success getting DY to read one short article kindly provided by Archaix for him, so I doubt he'll fare any better with 3.
