A freeper told me why the economy is so bad right now...
it is because the people of America do not have confidence in Obama, which caused the stock market to plummet.

Oh dear Lord, please help me...

3. Sure the plunge began earlier, but it was caused
by all the investors being mortally afraid of an Obama victory. :crazy:

6. I heard all the rich people started hiding their money back in March 08
because they were certain Obama or Hillary was going to "take it" and that's the reason the economy is failing. The rich people are afraid of taxes and therefore don't want to make any more money because a slight portion of that wealth will be taxed higher. Even though, they will come out with still more money, out of principle they are all trying to hide their money.

It couldn't be that the rich are greedy, selfish, people, who do stupid things like everybody else and lost their money doing dumb things.

7. I've been told it was "Barney Frank and his cronies"
that caused the economy to fail. I'm not kidding, they believe it. Doncha know "bush had a pretty good economy before Dems got into power and ruined it." Makes my head hurt.

12. um, the values started to plummet b/c the corporations were coming out right and left
with the truth that their profits they bragged about were actually lies, other corporations reported huge losses due to the economic downturn caused by the financial crisis that Obama had nothing to do with, and frankly, spending over a half trillion on warfare when we're hemorrhaging in this country isn't helpful... all that factual info just floats over wingnut's head though... it's because the black guy got in office and scared off the investors, yeah, sure!!

14. The Creed of Greed caused this shit....people got overly greedy and Voila
Young old, rich poor, white black, etc....many of the greedy ones got caught in musical banks/stocks/fund/etc are now a bit poorer...

The richer ones complain of not shopping for their designer clothes and eating at those fancy resturaunts and firing the pool service, etc

The poorer ones lost their homes and jobs....

Obama to blame?? Don't think so...its the creed of greed and the MEism of all too many citizens....Fuck everyone else, fuck Nation, and fuck world....Just gimme my money

23. You could have asked for a clarification.



"Did you hear that from Limbaugh or from Hannity?"

Probably both.

:rofl: :rofl:
