Why didn't Bush keep us safe on 9-11 when he got the memo in august that
Why didn't he keep us safe? Simple.

You can't start a war without a conflict.

Allowing us to witness our own go down in multiple buildings in an extraordinary way is exactly what you need to get people mad and willing to kill.

Thus, we have our current 'war'.

Its a very effective method.

Beforehand.

For this to all function properly, it would need to be planned ahead of time.

People would have to allow the planes to fly around for hours, which they did.

Allow them not to be shot down, which they weren't.

And take over 7 hours to even do something about the hi-jacking, which they did.

A hi-jacked commercial airliner is like a flying missle.

Allowing multiple hi-jacked planes to fly around for hours without intercepting or destroying them is suicide.

that reminds me of some conspiracy theory about pearl harbor and how roosevelt knew about the attack, but instead of confronting the attacking force, he allowed it to happen to rally the american people behind entering a war on the other side of the world.

You've gotta look at things from their shoes.

When I say their, I mean the Pres and those who have ability to commence the war.

Its not completely unreasonable for them to do so. It makes sense.

If I were in their position, I may do likewise all in the name of keeping a good image amongst my people/country.

The art of war.

More than simply saying 'let's go after them cause they're threatening us with their words and hatred'.

You need extraordinary actions to take place.

Next, you compare the economy (GDP) of the USA vs Germany that has 1/4 of our population and so on... Lets compare EU vs USA in 2007. Who's doing better??? Lets compare those 8 years ago? How does it look???
Dr. the population of the 4 next largest economies that the USA outproduces is 1,593,000,000 to 303,000,000 so the USA is outnumbered by One billion five hundred ninety three million people. Again if you do not like the truth I can not change your mind.
First of all, if you really believe that "I hate America" by expressing my outrage and hate towards the Government and the leader that ruined many lives, ruined my children's future and made our existence tougher -- then you need some serious help.
Our current government is so corrupt that majority of the members are under some kind of investigation, that dollar has been artificially deflated to nothing, that the gas prices have been artificially inflated to the max, that the REAL inflation is well over 15%, that the middle class is disappearing, that all values that one time everyone envied this country are gone, that there has never been more hate toward us...and much more...

You have a serious problem, and many of people in this country havee the same issue. I used to have it -- it is called brainwashed by a constant media, propaganda and Govt crap. I lived in Communist state for 10 years, then in a dictatorship state for another 8 years and I believed all I heard. Then I moved to the USA, and i opened my eyes. It opened my eyes to that point that I learned that it is not so great here by traveling all around the world and seeing what is out there...

You need to do the same or stop arguing here because you have absolutely no clue what is out there...

Throwing some outdated numbers at us here is the same as watching FOX crap every evening -- pointless...

It is very simple -- the USA was something completely different in every sense 15 years ago -- well respected, prosperous, high standards, high freedoms, not divided, politically mature, strong middle class... Today, most of it is gone and we're sinking deeper every day. I am not saying that Clinton, or GB I did not contribute to it -- they did. But no one has put us down this fast like this current administration -- EVER.

Like it or not, there is a long way ahead of us if we want to be back on the right track, otherwise, the future for our kids is very dark...

As for your numbers:
Our debt is about $9.5T, our GDP about $13T
http://www.cedarcomm.com/~stevelm1/usdebt.htm

Russia has no debt.
China has no debt and almost $2t in cash

EU GDP is $15T (more than the USA)
EU debt is nowhere close to ours.
EU inflation is 2.2% in 2007.

THe point is while others are moving forward...we're falling backward...

simple, those that approve him are rich MOFOs that only care about their millions and nothing/nobody else.
Bush loves them, they love him and help each other...

Two major recessions??



As a recession is defined as two consecutive quarters of negative growth, the question becomes: "Who is the idiot?"

It is a bar graph. The bars that extend above the horizontal line labeled zero (0) depict a quarter in which the US GDP grew in real terms. The bars that extend below the horizontal line labeled zero (0) depict a quarter in which the US GDP contracted.

If you accept the traditional definition of a recession which is two or more consecutive quarters of negative economic growth, the graph shows that there have been zero recessions during W's term. The Bureau of Economic Analysis though does use a broader measure to define a recession and they calculate that there was a mild recession between March and November of 2001.

You have to accept that the GDP #'s weren't fudged, too.

Who is making that prediction? What is their track record in making such predictions?
