What era do Democrats look back to as the "Golden Age"?

Yes, and they want another one, so they can get their hooks into everything again.

Props to a commentator over at Human Events for inspiration.

Nice attempt at a hijacker by a major hijacker.


To only briefly answer your digression—the new low in gold is time to buy more but things ain't over yet. And Europe does not have true austerity measures. Lol that you think that. A true Keynesian.

I'm not a Marxist. It's silly to have a worldview that only consists of either your ideology or Marxism. Human beings are better than that, even if you don't want them to be.

Obviously not all of Europe has austerity measures. And in some cases (Greece) there certainly isn't any painless fix.

But fair to say the US economy has been doing substantially better than some cases where they went with more of an austerity approach.

* Northern Keynesians demanding southern Keynesians plus Ireland making interest payments on their debts to northern European banks is not austerity anywhere.
FYP Now, quit hijacking. This thread is not about that. Now back to what Democrats consider their Golden Age. Answer or shut up.

To them it's a buying opportunity, no doubt. Of course, gold went absolutely nowhere for like 20 years up until the run up starting in the early 2000s, but don't tell them that.

Are you trying to deny me my First Amendment freedom of speech rights? I'm pretty sure the First Amendment specifically gives me a right to hijack too.


But yeah, the Great Depression wasn't the Golden Age for anybody. Not Democrats, not Republicans. Nobody.

But you're too ****ing dumb to understand, and too stubborn to learn, so I won't bother wasting more breath on the topic.
