    Tax cuts for the wealthy, Reaganomics!

    Are we at the point yet where we can admit Reagan was a disaster for the US? Or is it still too soon to pick on that poor old man?

    Somebody has to invest in America, U.S. corporations are outsourcing their labor. Ipad are made in China. All those engineers and programmers went to college in the United States.

    It's also when wages stagnated, two-parents had to start working two full-time jobs, and the middle-class began it's decline.

    Well, then there's that.

    But did parents REALLY need to start working two jobs? Or was that when everyone decided to keep up with the Jones'...

    As long as they stay out of Politics, but that could change with Schwarzenegger. He was talking about trying to get the amendment changed

    Im sure the massive welfare state that discourages women from having husbands had nothing to do with it, it must be a republicans fault :c

    I have a theory. . . . seriously, I do. It's basically this: Gloria Steinam worked with the CIA (which is a fact). Steinam, of course, was a feminist. The government and big business wanted a way to kill off pensions and drive down wages. So, they encouraged feminism to get women to enter the workplace, thereby increasing the supply of workers, thereby driving down wages.

    I don't think it's so much a GOP thing or Dem thing, although I think Reagan was a disaster and a boob. The diefication of that son of a bitch is almost as disturbing as the cult-of-personality the Dems used on Obama in '08. Almost.

    I don't think it was "keeping up with the Jones'" so much as just trying to keep up. The fact is that for middle class folks, real-wages have been stagnant of declining since the 70's.

    Just kidding. I only dislike Republicans slightly more than Democrats.

    Were going through this now, I want my wife to stay home and raise our son and probably have a couple more so I have farm laborers.

    Anyway, were getting a lot of pressure from the family for her to stay working at least part time but by the time you pay daycare and her vehicle and fuel its barely worth it. I would rather have her home making homecooked meals tending to our huge vegetable patch and keeping an eye on our freerange chicken, as they like to cause trouble once in a while.

    Its all brain washing bullshit. We eat better and cheaper now that everything is home made. Its more effort to just buy a sack of flour rather that frozen pizzas but a lot more satisfieing.

    Taxing the other 50% of the population was part of the motivation, too.

    That vid was 1939.....A lot of those guys were gonna be leaving and maybe killed in WW2....There was a sense of hope, optimism and patriotism with that generation....I wonder what they would think of the asshole today who camps out overnight on line for the next Iphone or buys a 52 million dollar mansion from money made telling fart jokes and asking about cock size

    I don't know if it's so much by China but more by the hucksters of "free-trade" who came to dominate this country. It used to be the GOP was all about tariffs. It became something that made Pat Buchanan no longer fit with the GOP. Now you'll be hard pressed to meet a Republican who isn't dogmatically against tariffs and absolutely pro-free trade. It was probably Newt Gingrich's most lasting legacy on the GOP.

    The country is doing great. If you aren't doing well it's on you.
