    If you post that, you will get a ton of "recs".

      I just happened to be here when this diary was posted, that's all.

    •  And why do you think (3+ / 0-)

      that might be, independantman?  Do you think that folks here can just post say, "roller skates!" and get a ton of "recs?"

      Happy for you that GWB did not affect your life, but for many of us that's not true. I won't bore you with the long list of how he affected mine, but I will throw out one.

      GWB's economy was stagnant, unmoving and murky long before the crash.  There are endless statistics about this out there, look them up.

      If you were a bank, you did great, but for anyone else, the Oh! Ohs!, as I like to call them (2000-2008) were as economically mushy as a duck shit infected marsh.

      As a self employed person of over 30 years, and as a person who took on opening a small business in 2000, I can tell you that GWB's policies hurt MANY, MANY, MANY in this country.

      Count yourself lucky you were not amongst them, instead of trying to be so "independant."  And btw, it's "independent."
