The inactivity of this forum.
Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:06 pm by Burkman
It's depressing to see how inactive it has been recently. I mean, everybody is pretty much primarily posting in the never ending thread now and there's not enough people here to make this place really booming. We need to find some way to bring more people here before this place just fades into nothingness...

I know for a fact that a lot of boards out there are thriving because of how many people are there. We just need to get back into the game and pull people here. However, where we obtain these people might matter, because we don't to end up pulling in douches like those at Selkath.

I understand that people are busy these days, but it doesn't seem like they're rarely at their computer anymore. I know most of you are still dicking around with your computer. I don't know how we …

Perhaps...

But it's not AMERICA free.

Is it too odd I can actually picture an American President addressing the masses with "We shall bring freedom, democracy and the American Dream to the people of Europe!"

Why is it I see either Nixon or Bush...

Because you hate America.

I don't see how. The dude blackmailed a lot of people for his own gain. That, and he wasn't a very good president. Nixon kept him on because Hoover blackmailed him.

Dude was a scumbag.

FDR is the reason unemployment during the GD ranged from 21-16 percent. He prolonged it.

You mean ended it. Boba certain things are facts and FDR's ending the great depression is one of them. You cannot debate that.

Actually, no. From the WSJ:

Quote :
Let’s start with the New Deal. Its various alphabet-soup agencies—the WPA, AAA, NRA and even the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority)—failed to create sustainable jobs. In May 1939, U.S. unemployment still exceeded 20%. European countries, according to a League of Nations survey, averaged only about 12% in 1938. The New Deal, by forcing taxes up and discouraging entrepreneurs from investing, probably did more harm than good.

About FDR's New Deal V2:

Quote :
Instead, Congress reduced taxes. Income tax rates were cut across the board. FDR’s top marginal rate, 94% on all income over $200,000, was cut to 86.45%. The lowest rate was cut to 19% from 23%, and with a change in the amount of income exempt from taxation an estimated 12 million Americans were eliminated from the tax rolls entirely.

Corporate tax rates were trimmed and FDR’s “excess profits” tax was repealed, which meant that top marginal corporate tax rates effectively went to 38% from 90% after 1945.

In 1946, the unemployment rate was 3.9%. Down from a range of 21-16 percent. FDR died in 1945. Congress decided not to pass ND2 and cut taxes. World War 2 caused the unemployment rate to drop as well. FDR did nothing but tack on Socialist programs that in the long run got us in this fiscal mess.

Hey Boba let's look at unemployment:



So right after the New Deal program started there was a marked decrease in unemployment that continued up until 1945. So I don't know where you pulled that quote from but you were wrong. In fact after 1945 unemployment rose.

There's a fundamental difference between socialist and democratic athletes... one is whipped for gold... the other wants it through will. Since you can see China didn't beat us... you can tell which one works more.

Lol, using China as a socialist example is like using Greece as a capitalist one...
They both fail at the objective...
Thus your example is flawed...
USSR athletes were revered by their parent countries... They weren't 'whipped for gold'....

If the USSR and communism/socialism is so great... they why did it fall apart in 1992 due to an economic powerhouse like the United States... hmmm?

It wasn't due to this 'economic powerhouse' you think the US was... It was the lack of focused leadership... Once Stalin crocked and Khrushchev took over, things got wacky... They didn't really know where to go or how to get there... They had some idea that the established communist pattern must continue... But that was just about it... Then the fear of the west kicked in... It wasn't fear that the west was better or more successful, it was the fear that it was there as an option...

Or it could be the fact that we don't beat our athletes and they actually want to win because it's something they enjoy and aren't forced to do.
