Global Economic Recession Causing More Poverty, Deaths For Females Than Males: Report

“They have changed the orientation of their economic systems, TOWARD capitalism. Germany and Sweden do not have the scale, the demographics or the world wide obligations that we do. That would be similar to saying Texas and Utah are doing "really well", hello.
The fact is that capitalism is the best path to expanded prosperity and socialism is a dead end. Even Sweden has REDUCED taxes from 90% to 50% now.”

“How is it that there is no advantage for the Obama's but there is for the Romney's, Whaa?
If there is NO advantage why have it there? Hello!
So if Romney were in GOVT he could just have his assets managed like the Ill. pension system and you'd be OK with it.
You really buy this, please, there is a REASON people have there money there, so as to not have to pay Occupy-style taxes. Now look up the Kennedy's and the Kerry's they are there also, WHY,-------oh, maybe just a coincidence :)”

“For 70 yrs China starved,
but when they changed their economic system, to capitalism ---PROSPERITY!
Same for India, Brazil and Russia.
When Europe went socialist, they started to go bankrupt, same is happening here,
try thinking rather than being told.”

“Nope, there are no purely capitalist national economic systems nor are there any purely socialist national economic systems ... and none has ever existed. All national economies are some sort of mix of socialism and capitalism and actually always changing their mix. We're just a bit more capitalistic than many others and we direct a LOT of our socialism to our MIC, wealthy individuals, and massive "neocolonialist" corporations through many forms of "welfare" .... no bid contracts, depletion allowances, subsidies, tax breaks, etc.”

“You forget that ALL of these countries are also still Socialist as well. They have "mixed economies". Try thinking instead of beleiving what YOU are told.

And Socialist Germany and Sweden are doing very well-better than we are.”

You want socialism, enjoy the poverty!”

Sandy Reis on Jan 25, 2013 at 01:07:08

“capitalism is the system that lifted majority of people OUT OF POVERTY. why do you think our country has this system? go to other countries and see how their poor live compared to us. study capitalism and you'll see why this is the best system for all of us. in socialist places, poor people have even less. (Im from Sweden and left for America).
you were better off quiet”

“They, like Romney, have accounts in the Cayman's,
they all dodge American taxes,
just like you would if you could.
Romney is up front about it but Kerry, the Kennedy's, the Clinton's and YES the Obama's -----ALL have Cayman island accounts.
They just play you for the chump that you are.”

“obama has a state of illinois pension and he has no
control of where the pension has investments. some are
in a trust in the cayman islands. he however derives no
tax advantages from the fact that it is in the cayman
islands, unlike romneys accounts.

“No opinion, it is the fact you keep squirming around, BO blamed the "video" it is everywhere, from him, Hillary and Rice. Undeniable to anyone not blinded by partisan loyalty. BO's mention of "act of terror" was a general statement, a non-specific, throwaway line. He knew THEN the video had nothing to do with it and this was AQ on 911. Nevertheless that fact undercut his admin's confidence that getting OBL effectively ended the AQ threat. Elections trump everything for BO, he had to lie. Your attempt to add "confusion" to the mix is pathetic. Everybody, that is capable of independent thought KNEW that an attack in a muslim country, recently involved in a revolt, on a US target ----THAT HAD NO SECURITY,------on 911 --for crying out loud --was an AQ hit. The "video" story bought time to blur issues but eventually the truth was revealed the "video" story was simply a Chi-town lie -----to the nation! Where was BO during the 6 hour attack, live fed went to the WH, where was the rescue, who told the CIA to stand-down, it's a horror show of incompetence but just keep talking about how the "fog of war"etc. was just overwhelming. ABSURD!”

“Clinton's CRA most certainly FORCED banks to loan to those that were not qualified and when the sub-prime rates ticked back up those borrowers defaulted. It never happened BEFORE the CRA. There are a thousand moving parts to the meltdown but at the base, loans to the unqualified ----and the repeal Glass, allowed the toxic "assets" to be packaged by Wall Street investment banks sending the fraud global (that also never happened before). You remove both of those CLINTON policies and there would be no meltdown. That's just a fact. Add to that Clinton's determined policy of ignoring AQ and OBL and you get 911. He was a shameless disaster.
For the record I am not a Repub, I dislike them almost as much as the Dem's. I am no Bush apologist and would gladly rake his insane policies and decisions if that were the topic.”

“Two weeks of spin and deflection from the president all contrived to BLAME the video is quite enough. Why the blatant effort to lie, in his speech to the UN he did the same. Petraeus is on record saying he know immediately it was an AQ attack, the live fed went to STATE and the WH. Any rational person knew what was happening, yet no rescue attempt, and LIES for 2 weeks were their response, disgusting, and you apparently, because of partisan blindness, approve. How brave (?) how delusional (!) to attempt to defend lying to the nation!”

Your govt. LYING to you, you didn't like that when Bush did but now, ah,----- it's OK.
Face facts I did not "conventionally" ignore anything, there are memos from early last summer from the head of the security team advising against pulling them out, subsequently numerous memos form the ambassador including one from the day he died! Hillary was in-charge (more correctly should have been) it is on her watch, what kind of organizational structure would have NO American security, in a country immediately after a revolt, that was muslim------------ON 911!!!!!! Really, you could have handled this better.”
