Bith Set Me Up: Jimmy Carter is the Timothy Dalton of American presidents. He gets so much shiat from everyone, but he was exactly what was needed at the time. Then someone similar came along and had it better (Bill Clinton/Daniel Craig).


Jimmy Carter will return, in AUGUSTAPUSSY, DIE FROM A RABBIT BITE ANOTHER DAY, PEANUTBUTTERFINGER and YOU DON'T GET TO BE PRESIDENT TWICE

Of course the Republicans hate Jimmy Carter. Carter followed Bible Jesus's teachings, not Republican Jesus's teachings.

clambam: grumpfuff: clambam: Jimmy Carter is what was known back in the day as a "genteel" or "country club" anti-semite. Screw him and the horse he came in on.

My kids used to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity. I would tell them, if you see Jimmy Carter, punch him in the nose for me. When first one, then the other turned eighteen I said, don't punch Jimmy Carter if you see him. They asked why not and I answered, "Now you can be arrested for it."

Do you have a citation for Jimmy Carter being an anti-Semite? I've heard him called a lot of things, but I can't say that's one of them.

Alan Dershowitz good enough for you?

So...FWD: FWD: FWD: Cater is an anti-Semite because he doesn't suck Israel cock and therefore comma reasons and therefore. Got it.

Carter and his NSA Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski were so virulently anti-Soviet that they blindly helped fund the mujahideen, the proto-al Qaeda.  Without Carter and Operation Cyclone its unlikely the world would ever have heard of Islamists like Osama bin Laden.

The first thing FARK thinks of with Carter is homebrewing. It probably should be his hard on for anything Soviet.

My jewish friends in college said the same thing. It probably has something to do with him giving Palestinians a fair deal instead of letting Israel do whatever it wanted. But yea, I always thought it was ridiculous.


I did some googling, and that's exactly what it is. Carter said "Hey, let's treat the Palestinians like people," and he didn't always suck Israel's cock.

Therefore, he is clearly an anti-Semite. Or something.

StopLurkListen: Churchill2004: rnld: schubie: He also picked Paul Volcker to head the Fed. His plan to improve the economy showed that there would be a few years of shiattiness before it would pay off and Jimmy said "whatever it takes". So Jimmy got the period of inflation and crumminess and Ronald Reagan got to bask in the glory of an improving economy when it finally turned around as predicted. Reagan kept Volcker too.

Inflation was out of control before Carter took office.

Does anyone remember the WIN (whip inflation now) buttons that Ford made?

The idea that you could affect inflation through a public-pressure campaign to get people to change their behavior seems so bizarre and- quaint isn't quite the right word- naive in retrospect. It wasn't just Ford being a dumbass, either. People honestly believed they were personally causing inflation by buying that $15 blender they didn't really need. It's hard to get in light of today's era where having a discussion of inflation without talking about the Fed and its actions seems like having a discussion about spaceflight without mentioning gravity.

replace "inflation" with "economic bubble" and you have the national discourse since 2008.  It's all YOU PEOPLE's fault. Not the banks that the government can do something about, like change banking laws or reserve requirements etc., it's just YOU PEOPLE personally causing an economic downturn.

Thanks, you people.
