First, an economy will recover on its own, once bad policy is no longer enacted. FDR began reversing his own policies in the late 30's.
But arguably the biggest reason for the recovery was the huge post-WWII tax cut enacted by Repubs.
That's bulls***. Despite the Post WWII tax cut, starting in 1949 there were five recessions in twelve years totalling 25% of that period, which is precisely why Supply Sider JFK proposed his across the board tax rate cut that closely resembled Reagan's.
As usual, you bungle basic reality.
What "post wwii tax cut"? the top bracket was still in the 90's when Kennedy was elected? Eisenhower didn't cut taxes, Kennedy did.
and you baggers always tend to forget that all of that booming recovery from WWII on through the 50's was heavily government subsidized from the auto makers, through the housing boom, GI Bill, etc.... That boom wasn't despite liberal policies, it was because of liberal policies.

We're working on that.
If you cannot see the option, hit ctrl F5. That is all.
Yours don't seem to be carrying from post to post. Otherwise, I'm sure it'd be over 500 by now.
Seems to me this forum is your only claim to fame?
Threads are made sticky when I see them as important for the forum. This is a pissy fit over an obvious joke.
Here, let's do it this way: I readily admit that I lied about coding, and I did it to aggrandize myself and impress everyone with what a swell guy I am. I lied - and my face is flush, my cheeks are hot with deep red shame. You GOT me.
The only reason I refuse to sticky this thread is that I am too humiliated. I am praying the thread will drop before any girls see it.
