My favorite part is Calvin Coolidge.

Economic historians have shown that Roosevelt's policies actually extended the Great Depression.

The Great Depression started in 1929 and was at it's worst in 1933, about six months after FDR was inaugurated. Then, the New Deal caused massive growth in the GDP and fall in unemployment.

On the other hand, Sean Hannity was blaming the crippled economy on Obama BEFORE he was even inaugurated. So, wtf...let's just say we hate Democrats are dishonest and leave it at that, shall we?

I'll be surprised if my f-i-l hasn't replaced the Kinkade over his couch with one of these when we visit at Christmas.


If he hasn't at least you'll know what to get him.

I have to admit, I really want One Nation Under Socialism. Obama just looks so presidential as he burns the Constitution.

Actually, I take it back. If you go to the guy's website, you can find out the meaning of all the details. Turns out the guy is actually just a typically Teahadist loon:

The Rooster

I am reminded of the story of Peter in the New Testament. On the eve of Christ's crucifixion he denied Jesus three times. When he heard the cock crow it said he went and wept bitterly. (Matthew 26:75) As with Peter, Americans are in a state of denial. We must WAKE UP to our situation.

So Calvin Coolidge cut taxes on the rich.... and we had the crash of 29.

Regan cut taxes on the rich.... and we had the crash of 87.

Bush cut taxes on the rich... and we had the crash of '08.

I'm starting to see a pattern here -- if you let the rich keep too much of their money, they fark up the economy. Therefore, we should tax them to death to prevent economic calamity.

No, it means that investment - real investment - is necessary for growth. Cutting tax rates only encourages speculation, which is unhealthy.

It's all about liquidity : If the market is too liquid, then it adjusts in reaction, causing a crash, and illiquidity.

If the government can gently reduce the liquidity of the market at the point where it starts to go wrong, then strong economic growth occurs.

It's funny how taxing them "to death" still leaves them better off than 99.99% of Americans. It's almost like, regardless of the tax rate, they'll still have tons more money.

Technically they point the extension of the Great Depression of the slowing of the economy due to austerity measures being put into place way too soon.

I don't think there is anything else as campy as the brilliant pieces this deranged nut has been able to entertain ourselves with.

I wonder if the guy knows that he's a laughing stock of the art community and the community as a whole outside of the insular Conservative/Tea Party groupthink?

HMS_Blinkin: RulerOfNone: Political tripe aside, this guy is a rather decent artist.

He might make realistic impressions of the people and things he's trying to depict in his painting, but that doesn't make him an artist. His work isn't challenging, it is, as you said, political tripe. And political tripe can never be art, as art can never be political tripe. Art can maybe, MAYBE, make a political statement, but it has to do so with some subtlety, and preferably in a way that challenges pre-conceived notions. This garbage only serves to reinforce pre-conceived notions.


Art can MAYBE make a political statement? Entire artistic movements, such as Dada and Surrealism, were created as political statements.

2012-06-23 09:56:21 PM  
Oh man, this Obama guy is truly history's greatest monster:

Unconstitutional?

You signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. But now we can see that the administration's trillion-dollar stimulus plan clearly is not working. Both the Constitution and history are witnesses that testify that the Stimulus Plan is both a federal usurpation of power and economically misguided. It may very well cause another "catastrophe." You said that this plan would create jobs immediately and keep the unemployment rate below eight percent. We are now at about 9.5%. Americans are asking, "Where are the jobs?" With 14.6 million people officially jobless, and 5.9 million who have stopped looking but say they want a job, and 8.5 million who are working part time but would like to work full time, you end up with nearly 30 million Americans who cannot find the work they want and desperately need. The ARRA is primarily designed not to stimulate the economy, but to build the size and scope of government. Government spending plans do not stimulate the economy. They are based on the idea that feeding "new" money into the economy will create economic growth. But the money isn't new.it's either taxed or borrowed. It's essentially redistributed from one group of people to another, and no new money is created. And also, State governors, looking down the gun barrel of long-term spending forced on them by your "stimulus" plan, are saying they will refuse to take the money. This is a Constitutional confrontation between the federal government and the states unlike any in our time.

You signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law. The federal government is now forcing Americans to buy health insurance. Even with the disapproval of the American majority you pushed through what we call "Obamacare." Over 27 states are now suing the federal government over your health reform law. This law began the process to socialize America's health care system. It forces Americans to buy health insurance from a private company against our will.

You appointed over thirty Czars without any Congressional oversight to control every aspect of the country.

You intervened in the troubled automotive industry, renewing loans for General Motors and Chrysler Corporation to continue operations while reorganizing. Over the following months the White House set terms for both firms' bankruptcies, including reorganization of GM giving the U.S. government a temporary 60% equity stake in the company. Where in the Constitution does it say the government can do that?

You signed into law the popular Car Allowance Rebate System, known popularly as "Cash for Clunkers." In the middle of our country's worst financial crisis you give out freebees with taxpayer dollars?

You used your executive powers to shakedown British Petroleum after the oil leak catastrophe in the Gulf to create the $20-billion escrow (slush!) fund without any law, legal controls, or binding rules to guide it on how and how much those injured materially by the oil spill (and whom among them) will be paid.

You attacked Libya without consulting Congress to declare war. We were not being attacked and it was an unprovoked act of aggression.

You signed the NDAA.. All though it was necessary to pass a military budget, the disregard for the Fourth Amendment is stunning. Where is the Supreme Court on this one?

You believe that the Constitution is a living, breathing document. I thought that the only way to change the Constitution was to amend it? It's not all your fault, Mr. President. If Congress and the Supreme Court did their job properly you would have been checked and balanced.
