  1. Who is to Blame For The US Debt Downgrade?
    1. Ben Shalom Bernanke, for the policies that weakened the dollar

    2. The republicans, for not taking seriously the warnings from the S&P during the recent deal making.

    3. Those responsible for George W.'s policies

    In case you did not notice, there is a poll up there. Do you see it?
  2. BSAM


    The thugs/shameless whores in D.C.

    (You should have put this in the poll.)

    who to blame?
    each and every of greedy, irresponsible, delusional americans.

    they are the ultimate reason why u.s. public finances are in the deep trouble.

    who borrows money like crazy to buy useless stuff?
    who buys 3x overpriced homes?

    who votes for bush and is not enraged at: America's wars , pentagon stealing 5 trillion and Fed giving away 16 trillion?

    who drinks coca cola, eat at mcdonalds, buys drugs which are causing huge harm and then the whole nation must waste trillions on "health care"?

    who is so naive to believe that there can be a drug or wonder pill against cancer? 3 trillions were spent to find it. no success. usa will spent many times more, and more americans will die from cancer.

    who likes marijuana and other drugs to be illegal? 75% of crimes are related to the fact that drugs are expensive due to being illegal. prisons costs billions, police, CIA, etc.

    the american society will get exactly what they asked for: bankruptcy. but not state bankruptcy. more and more individuals will simply run out of the last cent and sink in debt. the fed owners, obama, apple inc. and the oil cartels will always be in a great shape.

    The downgrade occurred because the dems refused to curtail government spending. More downgrades are going to happen as long as the Obama regime and the liberal Senate keeps spending a high percentage of GDP and keeps printing money excessively.
  5. It is down to Obama Hussain. He is a failure both economically and politically. And he is not even American... what a joke.

    We need to get our boys home from his stupid Libyan war and we need to increase our aid to Israel.

    Healthcare nationalization, a hatred for our Israeli brothers, stupid wars in Libya.... all Obama Hussain's.


    And FFS, give us an AMERICAN president.
  6. looks like OBama leads America to another world first. :D

    Holy one sided poll, batman.
  8. beginning with a Clinton-era surplus in 2001, the Bush administration ran up deficits of $158 billion in 2002; $378 billion in 2003; and $413 billion in 2004. Then, with revenues pouring in, the deficits began to fall: $318 billion in 2005; $248 billion in 2006; and $161 billion in 2007. That 2007 deficit, with the tax cuts in effect, was one-tenth of today’s $1.6 trillion deficit.

    What changes took place in 2007 forward?
  9. Oh please, talk about blaming the victim. Who buys over priced inflated real estate? Who votes for these retards running this country? People that don't have a choice, that's who!
    The system is corrupt top to bottom and thinking your vote/choice does anything to change it is simply ignorant of the facts. If there's nothing to eat but shit, you eat shit. Some even learn to like it, and for the right money you can find people that will say it's good for you.
  10. Hmmm, .....I don't know....... maybe SATAN became Speaker..
