@gacpl. With all these 'facts' attributed to BHO, I am surprised that Tea Party Lunatics have not stormed the White House after being egged on by Republican Light Weight Bobby Jindal to do so! BHO ain't leaving. He is staying in the Oval Office, and The Tea Partiers have failed to take up Sarah Palin's Mantra of Impeachment.

CONGRESS has FAILED AMERICA!!! Even the Billionaires know it. (see another Blog for a Fact Check)

Frustration leads to anger. Jindal's endorsement of a 'hostile takeover of D.C.' may be yalls way to go on this one. BHO could then declare martial Law and we could round up a bunch of ya and put ya in cages.

I came back to this blog yesterday for the first time in about six months and I am so glad to see that nothing ever changes here.
Politics as usual.

JimmyMack commented on Thursday, Jul 24, 2014 at 14:29 PM

@Mountain: Well quilting and crocheting ain't too popular around here. But, you are right. We could use some variety! LIGHT BULB MOMENT!!! Why don't YOU Mountain WRITE SOMETHING WE ALL COULD SINK OUR TEETH INTO??? Can you do that?
Ya might could wax philosophic on why all that inbreeding takes place amongst rural deliverance type folks and other hillbilly clans? Maybe shed some light on why it is they all seem to have that one continuous dark connected eyebrow?

It has the potential to become the number one blog and would change things drastically around here.

Or, ya might attempt to explain the conundrum of the anonymous one who calls himself TOT!!

Good ole Archie. Same gripes, different decade. I think it proves that the more things change they remain the same.

JimmyMack commented on Friday, Jul 25, 2014 at 12:27 PM

The ONLY difference between Archie's rant in the clip is that tho the gripes are the same today, Republican Conservatives have thrown in the APOCOLYPSE. The world is still a ka-ka bucket with all the LIBERALS in the world stoking the fire under the boiling bucket of ka-ka.

Thinking about that statement that just came out of me regarding Republicans, there just MAY BE some Biblical tie in to their schtick: Conservatives are one of the Four Horsemen that appear in END TIMES and their horse is DEATH.

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Jul 28, 2014 at 12:13 PM

"The Wall Street Crash of 1929, also known as Black Tuesday[1] or the Stock Market Crash of 1929, began in late October 1929 and was the most devastating stock market crash in the history of the United States, when taking into consideration the full extent and duration of its fallout.[2] The crash signalled the beginning of the 10-year Great Depression that affected all Western industrialized countries.[3]"

Course we could argue who is the worst Economic President til the cows come home. But Republican Herbert Hoover presided over the WORLD'S WORST economic collapse in World History. Sure, you can cherry pick a statistic here or there to PROVE Obama is the Economic Satan. The problem is it hard to measure totality of human misery. The Depression of 1929 and the collapse of the Stock Market along with the formation of soup and bread lines, people forced out of their homes and into the streets, the complete lack of medical care etc. was inflicted not just upon the United States but on the Entire World. And the argument could be made that it was the primary precursor to World War II that ushered in the most Evil Government the World has ever seen since creation.

Conservative estimates put the body count at 60 million people world wide. 2.5% of the world population. Other estimates in terms of death brought about by post war disease, injury, malnutrition, radiation injury put the total more closer to 80 million people.

So if one is to measure legacies of World Leaders, one should take into the entire impact of the leaders actions. We are spoiled Americans in todays world and I admit we have suffered economically. But there are degrees of suffering that are beyond measure. And this President does not even enter the discussion as an author of human misery. No matter how many polls are taken. Or how many health care policies are bought or not bought. Those health choices were not even available in 1929.

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Jul 28, 2014 at 13:25 PM

"Those health choices were not even available in 1929." The only 'choice' one really had in 1929 was deciding what part of the street they chose to lay down and die in.

I'll take the health insurance choice today over the latter choice afforded us in 1929 under the worst President in American History, Hoover, rather than the most disrespected President in History...ever.

So the thing about these fun facts is this.. most of the numbers are inconsequential. Most are.
$17.3 Trillion:
The Current National Debt After Five Years Of State Of The Union Promises To Tackle The Problem. (U.S. Treasury Department, Accessed 1/24/14)

$6.6 Trillion:
Added To The National Debt Despite Obama’s Declaration In His 2009 Address To Congress That He Didn’t Want To Leave “A Mountain Of Debt.” (U.S. Treasury Department, Accessed 1/24/14; President Barack Obama, Remarks by The President In State Of The Union Address , Washington, D.C., 1/27/10)

$4 Trillion:
The Amount Of Debt That Obama Once Called “Irresponsible” And “Unpatriotic.” (Sen. Barack Obama, Remarks At A Campaign Event, Fargo, ND, 7/3/08)

$1.8 Trillion:
Cost Of ObamaCare’s Coverage Provisions From 2014 To 2023. (CBO, 7/30/13)

These numbers do not really matter. The rhetoric attached to the amount of debt from the senator Obama is basically rhetoric.
The reason these numbers do not matter is because of the current economic system in the world. A good book to read is "Secrets of the Federal Reserve" by Eustice Mulins
The book kind of outlines how the federal reserve was set up and how currencies have value.
now the numbers that really matter big time are....
$1 Trillion:
The Total Student Debt Held By Americans. (Josh Mitchell, “Student-Loan Debt Slows Recovery,” The Wall Street Journal’s Real Time Economics, 12/30/13)
This is bad and our entire education system needs an overhaul. The current administration has taken some steps but nowhere near enough to fix this problem.

10.4 Million:
The Number Of People Unemployed At The End Of Obama’s Fifth Year As President. (BLS, 1/24/14)
Another number that does not bode well for the country as a whole. I have to believe this stems from a bad education system though and help with one would lead to fixing the other

47. 6 Million:
Americans Receiving Food Stamps In 2013. (Department Of Agriculture, Accessed 1/24/14)

46.5 Million:
Americans Living In Poverty – A Record Number – Despite Obama Calling Income Inequality “The Defining Issue Of Our Time” In His 2012 State Of the Union Address. (U.S. Census Bureau, Accessed 1/24/13)

19.4 Million:
The Number Of Americans That Have Joined The Food Stamp Program Since Obama Took Office. (Department Of Agriculture, 1/24/14)
These numbers also matter big time and are more thank likely caused by no jobs which are more than likely caused by a bad education system
So in short education is key to individual and group prosperity.

shannalet, I don't know who you are and that really does not matter. Your comment above is the most intelligent comment I've seen on this site since I started observing the Coastal Courier Opinion/blog site.
Thank you and you bring a refreshing perspective to this site.

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Jul 28, 2014 at 17:55 PM

Well shannalat, to me at least, you seem like a fence sitter that caters to the right.

Time will tell...

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Jul 28, 2014 at 18:53 PM

@shannalat: Any body that garners the praise of Tot, a high school dropout, deserves to sit upon the pedestal of unbounded ignorance.

Well come to the sandbox!

shannalat commented on Tuesday, Jul 29, 2014 at 09:12 AM

@jimmymack I am a big proponent for a proper education. That being said (and I hate to say it but) the current education system is an education but often falls short of proper. Now, kids should stay in school, but kids and adults should always learn. I am not looking for anyone's praise. I would also like to point out that timeontarget is not in totally bad company when it comes to high school dropouts Do you know what Tumblr is? Have you heard on Virgin Air? Both CEO's and founders were high school dropouts
For most a high school education is their path however for some this is not.
"A successful life is one that is lived through understanding and pursuing one's own path, not chasing after the dreams of others." -- Ching-Ning Chu
As far as fence sitting goes...
when it comes to something like current economic policies, there really isn't a fence to sit on.
I mean and we are now coming full circle but most of these numbers are inconsequential. What really matters is that we have an educated and working public who are not starving.

JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Jul 29, 2014 at 11:28 AM

Einstein if I am not mistaken was a drop out. But folks like him are few and far between. You are known by the company you keep. Here you have garnered the praise of one who is....let's just say....mentally challenged. You speak to his mentality no matter your rationalization for it.

JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Jul 29, 2014 at 11:41 AM

Make that Thomas Edison. Sometimes I confuse my geniuses but I never suffer fools.

Edison was kicked out of school.

shannalat commented on Tuesday, Jul 29, 2014 at 12:47 PM

Thomas Edison was a want to be Tesla

JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Jul 29, 2014 at 13:20 PM

That is a matter of opinion Shan. Tesla was known for a time as The Mad Scientist. I'll take the Genius of Menlo Park.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Jul 30, 2014 at 08:32 AM

Let's take a poll to get to the Bottom Line on this one!!!

JimmyMack commented on Thursday, Jul 31, 2014 at 08:35 AM

I vote for Tot.
