The depression started in 1929 with the stock market crash. America began to recover around 1939 as the country began supplying material to Europe for the war, than it really took off in 1942.
Hoover was pres when the depression began. Your point?

With all the effort and venom the Obama trolls are putting in to trying to knock down Romney/Ryan, it seems like they are a bit scared.
From the way they describe them, you would think they drink blood, eat babies, and flog small animals just for fun.
TheIr hysteria is hilarious and pathetic.
"Ryan: Rape Survivors Must Have Their Rapist's Baby"

Ryan/Romney/Antichrist 2012 the most despicable party since the Nazzies openly and IN WRITING declare that women's wombs are GOVERNMENT PROPERTY.

The War on Women by the GOPUX continues. What self respecting, decent, independent woman would be a Republiscum. None would.

No female Republiscum is decent.

Your hateful posts are enough to make anyone but the dumbest Obamanoids vote Romney against Oblamo. Keep up the good work, idiot.

Just by being a DNC troll, makes YOU government property. Try getting off your knees and quit putting government pee pees in your mouth.

You are no where near Oregons level. We have a different opinion, thats all. I will discuss it all day with you, and I dont think either of us will hate the other by the end of it. Its called a discussion, and it doesnt have to be hateful, which neither of us has done.
Oregon and others are just hateful,stupid people who, for whatever reason, enjoy spewing hate. I guess they arent capable of civilized debate so they fall back to their skill level, the school yard arguing. Oregon and his ilk sound like 12 year old kids arguing about Hanna Montana.

Yeah, that sounds like you like women a whole lot, as long as they tow the party line and dont dare to have an independent thought. That sounds an awful lot like the modern version of "Bare foot and pregnant" to me.

Bernie replies;
Disagree. Observe how F. D.R. with the genius of Marriner Eccles focused on strengthening the middle class. Engine to our financial establishment is sustained with a flow of liquidity. Middle class are the consumers that produce liquidity via their rapid expenditures for consumption of products produced. Preventing that, by hording the wealth to a few, decimates the consumers for production of products and its consumption. Eliminate consumer no products sold. Business fail . Game over? Example;… 5 people playing poker. Game progresses and the pot goes to 2 winners. They play as long as the other 3 have credit. When that is gone, game over.
Note; at that time of F.D.R. the 1% of the population held 43% of the nations wealth. Presently 1.2% hold 40% of the wealth. Middle class lost a big hand. Game nearly over. Strengthen the middle class by infusing health and prosperity becomes the responsibility of the government. Incorrect polices that stimulate the 1.2% will hasten the termination of the game. It is now time to stimulate the middle class to increase liquidity.“if” you wish to keep the game going.
I speculate republicans will want to extract a greater debt from the middle class as they speculate the margin is significant enough, at 3% plus. I consider this naďve gambling and with a few more hands played, the game will be ended .
War is debt to nation. Gone are the days of plunder to the Victors. Germany being saddled with a burdensome debt organized themselves and attacked their oppressors. Observe Allied’ response as victors. Lesson learned did not fine the nations that lost the war. They rebuilt them to keep communism to gain a foot hold in an impoverished culture. Increasing debt to the victors.
Liberal International Free Trade Marketing make war an unprofitable pursuit.“And the WALL comes a tumbling down….

Republicans on women’s rights are and have been constantly abused and degraded as social human being, Virtually all cultures have held females as second rated citizens or worse.
Chauvinistic prejudices still run rampant within our USA. Example Ryan is an anti-choice extremist. Ryan co-sponsored an extremist anti-choice bill, nicknamed the 'Let Women Die Act,' that would have allowed hospitals to deny women emergency abortion care even if their lives were at risk. And he co-sponsored another bill that would criminalize some forms of birth control, all abortions, and in vitro fertilization. More examples here pick one; "Statement on Mitt Romney's Selection of Rep. Paul Ryan for His Vice-Presidential Running Mate," NARAL, August 11, 2012
http://www.moveon.org/r...
"Paul Ryan's Extreme Abortion Views," The Daily Beast, August 11, 2012
http://www.moveon.org/r...
"Paul Ryan Sponsored Fetal Personhood Bill, Opposes Family Planning Funds," Huffington Post, August 11, 2012
http://www.moveon.org/r...

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs where are they? With republicans like Ryan and his plans for middle class economic plan would cost America 1 million jobs in the first year. Ryan's proposed budget would cripple the economy. He'd slash spending deeply, which would not only slow job growth, but shock the economy and cost 1 million of us our jobs in 2013 alone and kill more than 4 million jobs by the end of 2014.

Bernie replies to those that are beguiled by the myth of republican superior economics.
Just the opposite.
I don’t know what you invested in. I read the Markets by their index’s. Observe the annual compound returns for the DOW, S&P500 and Nasdaq 17.2%, 25.3%, and 31.7% respectively in Obama’s first 3.3 years. Lets compare that with Ronald Reagan for the same indices and time period. Dow 6.86%, S&P 500 6.16% Nasdaq 7.02%
I remind you the G.W. Bush in his last 17months in office had stock market loss of 58%! Worse than any rolling 17 month period during the crash of the market in the great depression Presently Obama has recovered in the equity markets, making up most of the lost from Bush. Today we float around 13,000. Obama essentially provided a tourniquet to stop the spiraling bleeding and the downward trend. Last 12 months of Bush ,we suffered the lost of 4.43 million jobs. Not since the great depression has that occurred. By stopping the downward spiral of markets and increasing the equity markets by 105%. Obama Provided the foundation, to halt the spiraling jobs lost of 750,000 a month.
Time to upgrade your portfolio. I presume you’re a Bear. That would explain your loss of comprehension as the Bull comes charging in.

Ryan/Romney/Antichrist 2012 Plan for the Middle Class:

- Eliminate Medicare in 2016

- Eliminate SS immediately

- Eliminate grants, loans, public anything that helps keep the middle class from descending into poverty

What does this mean in real numbers for the Middle Class?

-$4,000/year/family to pay for ZERO tax rates for the billionaires that are the GOPUX and the Romneys and the millionaire Ryans.

-$6,000/senior/year to pay for the destruction of Medicare...initially. In less than a decade, seniors will be unable to purchase health insurance...period. Everything will be out of pocket including that $100K heart surgery or longterm cancer treatment.

- Initial cost of Ryan/Romney/Antichrist 2012 for Middle Class families:

$16,000/year PLUS elimination of benefits like Medicare and Social Security and public education. In less than a generation, the Middle Class will be a tenth of what it is today as 90% descend into poverty.

How many Middle Class TeaBaggers comprehend this kind of math?

That would require that Republiscums of any stripe can add. Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

No one, including the GOPUX disputes these numbers.

They also do not dispute the making of women's wombs into government property. They also do not dispute that a young girl would be executed for aborting a fetus that is the result of rape or incest or is physically killing her.

Having been confronted from both sides by the heinous facts of Ryan/Romney/AntiChrist 2012, what do Republiscum rank and file do? They double down on ignorance and fantasy praying that Ryan/Romney/Antichrist 2012 will not hurt them too badly.

Why can't we secede from these morons.

Hurricane a coming..
Ironically as the republicans convention Winds up, will their Freudian slips be amplified with the Winds of a Hurricane once again approaching our shores. Could this be an Ominous warning of what they represent. Republican Hurricanes have been plaguing our Main Street USA since 1970. Last one, hurricane Bush, damaged our Main Street USA to the tune of $11 Trillion for repairs. Hmmm
Farewell: what’s your take on this... Hmmmm
How long will it take to make all clean up and repairs? Hard to tell with all the sabotaging efforts that the republicans continuously advocate to our Main Street USA.
Republicans are exhibitionist of a no, no, no leadership party. Observe when Wall Street was bailed out. They partied and rewarded their executives, with $ millions of tax free dollars. Same executives’ that FAILED our economy. USA rewards failures? Elitist Welfare?
Main Street USA gets one lump of coal to sustain them through wintry Christmases.
Now Nov. 6 -2012 comes rolling by, we hear from the Cronyism from their fortress on Wall Street…BAH HUMBUG.“Let them die. It will reduce the surplus populace”

Ryan would replace Medicare with vouchers for retirees to purchase insurance, eliminating the guarantee of health care for seniors and putting them at the mercy of the private insurance industry. That could amount to a cost increase of more than $5,900 by 2050, leaving many seniors broke or without the health care they need. He'd also raise the age of eligibility to 67.

Ryan/Romney/Antichrist 2012 keep saying they are going to stop Obama from saving $716 Billion from Medicare.

The math says that means Ryan/Romney/Antichrist are out to kill Medicare by 2016. There is real meaning for seniors and their families to:

FOUR MORE YEARS!
