George Bush predicts ISIS seven years ago

We may have different views on Iraq on what to do about it the Middle East. Either way, George Bush had a clue as to what was to become of the State. Whether we should have gone there in the first place is moot at this point.

This warning laid out in 2007 by President George W. Bush describes exactly what is happening today, 7 years later. We all knew that this was coming after we realized that the Iraqi Forces were no where close to being able defending their own country.

 

American Households net worth two-thirds of what it was during Bush

How about a feel good moment as we trundle off to work on a Monday morning? Too bad there is no one out there who can articulate the info. Just saying. Meanwhile revenues to the government via taxes hit an all time record. I would say the Obamabots should be wearing a smile on their faces. Everything right on schedule with this redistribution thing. Class warfare should commence at anytime now.

The median household net worth under Obama declined one-third what it was during the Bush years.

Under Barack Obama American households are worth two-thirds of what they were worth under George W. Bush.
The New York Times reported:

Economic inequality in the United States has been receiving a lot of attention. But it’s not merely an issue of the rich getting richer. The typical American household has been getting poorer, too.

The inflation-adjusted net worth for the typical household was $87,992 in 2003. Ten years later, it was only $56,335, or a 36 percent decline,according to a study financed by theRussell Sage Foundation. Those are the figures for a household at the median point in the wealth distribution — the level at which there are an equal number of households whose worth is higher and lower. But during the same period, the net worth of wealthy households increased substantially.

The Russell Sage study also examined net worth at the 95th percentile. (For households at that level, 94 percent of the population had less wealth and 4 percent had more.) It found that for this well-do-do slice of the population, household net worthincreased 14 percent over the same 10 years. Other research, by economists like Edward Wolff at New York University, has shown even greater gains in wealth for the richest 1 percent of households.

5 Myths about why the South seceded

So let me see if I have this straight: Low income people who want tax-cuts are the same as those who favored slavery. As if we have not been ginned up enough, the Washington Compost comes up with this gem. Let’s stoke up the Civil War and slavery. So we are poor knuckle draggers who must be saved from ourselves. Those devilish tax cuts of Bush, the left just cannot get over it.
 
Full story about the 5 myths – this one was enough for me: Washington Post:
“[T]wo ideological factors caused most Southern whites, including those who were not slave-owners, to defend slavery. First, Americans are wondrous optimists, looking to the upper class and expecting to join it someday. In 1860, many subsistence farmers aspired to become large slave-owners. So poor white Southerners supported slavery then, just as many low-income people support the extension of George W. Bush’s tax cuts for the wealthy now.”
