Oh, by the way - we had a recession in the early 2000s also - must have been those stupid policies of Reagan/Bush, too - couldn't have had anything to do with Bill Clinton's eight years in the Oval Office. And I am sure that labeel believes that the years of recovery under Reagan/Bush _must_ have been the result of the enlightened policies of Jimmy Carter.

Nope couldn't have anything to do with Clinton. Why? Because Clinton was lucky. You might was he lucky. He was lucky because he followed on the heals of Reagan and the policies that he put in place prior to Clinton's administration was a gift that kept on giving. Clinton was lucky because he didn't get his butt impeached for lying under oath, and Clinton was lucky because he had a Republican House that pushed him into supporting more moderate positions and abandoning his party's destructive liberal ones. These things made Clinton appear to be successful and he crows about it still.

Actually, the early 2000s recession was brought about by venture capitalists speculating dot-com companies, which of course we all know crashed in early 2000. BC had nothing to do with it. The recession was compounded even further because of 9/11, which occurred under George Bush's watch.

9/11 was the result of Clinton administration failures of intelligence and taking out bin Laden when they had the opportunity to do so. Hmmmm...didn't the dot-com bubble occur on Clinton's watch? Have another glass of kool-aid.

9-11 was the result of the Rothschilds having their agents pull the biggest fraud in history IN PLAIN SIGHT. It was used to get Americans to surrender their freedoms w/out a fight(TSA, Patriot Act, NDAA, HR 347 etc), to give the military a blank check to waste money in the TRILLIONS and launch multiple useless endless wars, and to hide the TRILLIONS they already stole from our nation. What happened to the gold in the vaults at the WTC? Why did the FBI confiscate the videos recording the Pentagon? They released a whopping 5 FRAMES ONLY after being subpoenaed. NONE of which show a plane.

The dot-com bubble was mostly caused by the FED keeping interest rates too low and partly because of porn. The Internet languished in obscurity for decades until people realized that it could be used to trade free porn. Then entrepreneurs realized that they could sell porn over the Internet. Then people realized that they could sell anything online. Without the FED the growth would have been slower, but we wouldn't have had a recession after the bubble burst.

Like the hostages jetting from Iran the day Reagan raised his right hand, America’s economy is about to bust its chains.

Not everyone will celebrate, even though they should.

America wants to recover.

In all our history, recoveries follow crashes. Usually, the deeper the dip, the steeper the climb back out. The only crisis with a recovery worse than Obama’s is the one that led to policies even more collectively transformative than his.

Builders, growers, producers, achievers—that is, employers--don’t know whether the next blow from the White House will aim at their taxes, their energy, their emissions, their employees’ tort rights,...
