Bush, Congress struggle in public eye
By DAVID ESPO, AP Special Correspondent
WASHINGTON – The Democratic-controlled Congress and President Bush seem locked in a perverse competition for public unfavorability, according to a new Associated Press-Ipsos poll.
The survey shows Bush’s approval ratings at 35 percent, and Congress’ even lower, 25 percent. Only 27 percent of those polled said the country is headed in the right direction, and 39 percent said they support the Iraq war, with 58 percent opposed.
The stupidfuckastanis (red state livin’, bush votin’, fox snooze watchin’, repub supportin’, believers in the nascar drivin’ shotgun totin’ jesus) go into rapture whenever a poll comes out showing congress with lower approval ratings then g’dubya. Someone should tell them that there are repubs in congress too. To be fair, we had six years of bush crime family rule with a repub controlled house and senate that caused all the current problems in the first place. That said, the dems have done NOTHING to fix those problems since getting control of both houses, so they deserve as much blame for the mess as the repubs. There were also dems in the house and senate even when the repubs controlled both houses and many of these dems voted for every stupid thing the bush crime family came up with.
Really, both the dems and repubs have totally failed us. They have failed us with their disaster of a war. They have failed us with their disaster of an economic mess. They have failed us with this “globalization” that is nothing more then the race to the economic bottom for working folks, while the pig rich reap all the rewards for our sacrifice. Now that it’s all coming apart at the seams, maybe a bunch of people will learn their economic lesson!
If we had dems in control of both houses since 2000, we still would have the same problems we now have. A gore or kerry would have made no difference as prez. The two parties of the apocalypse both SUCK!
The war has raged on and on and on. Neither party has done a thing to bring it to an end. No matter if the dem or repub celebdidates win the election, the war will rage on…
The world economy is taking a big dive. Don’t believe the rosy picture painted by the cooked books they use to create government economic stats. Inflation is on the rise, just look at how much more you’re paying at the pump and super market. The market is dropping like a rock:
Stocks falls on credit and economy worries
By Kristina Cooke
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Stocks fell on Thursday on signs credit markets were seizing up, threatening economic growth.
An early blow to investor confidence came from Countrywide Financial Corp. (CFC.N). The biggest U.S. mortgage lender said it had to draw down an entire $11.5 billion bank credit line after it was essentially shut out of other credit markets.
All three major indexes fell more than 10 percent below their 52-week highs from mid-July, a level recognized as a market correction by professional investors, as opposed to a signal that a bull market has ended. Bear markets are defined by a 20 percent drop in prices from their highs.
The risky credit card economy is bringing the whole damn world market crashing down. It’s time the idiots in washingtOOn realize that low wages and easy credit are not a good way to run an economy. Working folks need a raise in salary to enable them to pay down their debt and start SAVING. The pig rich corporateers need take a pay cut and a tax increase. Anyone who still believes the bullshit involving taxes and CEO pay spewed by the neo-con-artist economorons is just plain stupid. THE WHOLE DAMN THING IS GOING TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET! As always, we regular folks will pay the price!
Here are the main conspirators in our disaster of a government. There are many other useless bullshitters in washingtOOn, these for are just the cornerstone of the economic and foreign policy house of cards that is coming down hard!
The White House refused to comment on the downward spiral in financial markets, and stuck to its bullshit claim that the U.S. economy is fundamentally sound and should continue to grow. The old timers used to say “just what we need, another damn engineer!” They were talking about herbert hoover, prez in 1929 when the market crashed and the great depression started. I’m sure hoover was saying the economy was fine back then, even as people lost their shirts and their homes! These days we got another engineer in the oval office:
Murderous free-spending (on the military) madman in chief
Vice murderous free-spending (on the military) madman
Lady who does lunch instead of impeachment
Useless jabbering celebdidate who just learned to wave bye bye
We have to rid ourselves of this disgraceful lot and their partners in crime. The two parties of the apocalypse have put us in a terrible predicament. Lets wave bye bye to the whole bloody bunch of them. Lets vote third parties!
The telepathic crickets on the ClapSotronics editorial board hold their breath every time the DOW is mentioned…
