Very basically, taxes were raised to finance the new deal, something you should never do during a recession because people have less money to spend, people are less motivated to work, and companies are less motivated to hire; it also created a lot of uncertainty in the market. Increasing uncertainty is one of the worst things that can happen to an economy because nearly all investments (think buying factory equipment) are based on planning ahead. People cannot plan when the rules of the market keep changing. Companies cannot budget properly and they are less likely to hire when they don't have a solid plan.
Incidentally, introducing uncertainty is one of the biggest harms caused by wars, blowing things up isn't the only damage.
Everywhere else in the world world, the depression was over within a couple years, but in the US, it lasted for over a decade.

Kerry, by his own account of his actions and protests, violated the UCMJ, the Geneva Conventions and the U.S. Code while serving as a Navy officer. Kerry met, on two occasions, with North Vietnamese negotiators in 1970 and 1971, willingly placing himself in violation of Article three, Section three of the U.S. Constitution, which defines treason as "giving aid and comfort" to the enemy in time of warfare.
He basically tried negotiating outside of his chain of command, and met with the enemy in secret. No one but him knows the details of what was discussed.
#186 - astafarianp (04/28/2015) [-]
I knew about admitting to war crimes but to be fair Vietnam was filled with war crimes on both sides with both governments knowledge. So i give him some props for admitting it what he did and what others did.
That second point i didn't know about. But yeah i agree with that being something that could and probably should have landed him jail.

Interesting. If anything, I would have predicted it to be some dipshit like G.W. or H.W. Bush who doesn't understand the document. Either way, I'm referring to the original 10 Amendments that make up the Bill of Rights, which has never been changed and I don't think they're allowed to change it, but I might be wrong about that last bit. I just feel they would have changed it if they could.
#188 - truesmokewolf (04/21/2015) [-]
Yeah. I'd say the two were unequal. One was a well-respected founding father with notable achievements predating his presidency. The other was some rich kid riding to fame on his father's political career and industry money with low approval ratings and some seriously dumb policies like the bailouts.
#191 - tkfourtwoone (04/21/2015) [-]
"Yeah. I'd say the two were unequa"
No they're not. They were both Presidents. They enjoyed the same legal & official status.
Furthermore, EVEN IF it was uttered by George W Bush, invalidating a good idea just because it was uttered by a moron does not make that idea less valid, it just makes you even a bigger moron.
#193 - truesmokewolf (04/21/2015) [-]
Right. Because Hitler and the current prime minister of Germany are equal. Leaders aren't equal, dude. It is pretty easy to say when some are better than others. Not to say Bush was Hitler or anything, but he wasn't the greatest and he did a number on the economy.
#195 - tkfourtwoone (04/21/2015) [-]
Did Hitler had a brilliant idea with the Autobahn?
Would the idea be more or less valid if it came from the current CHANCELLOR (not Prime Minister, you ignorant dumbfuck) (who just so happens to be Angela Merkel, possibly the world's most powerful woman... just saying) of Germany? No, it wouldn't be.
Now you can kindly shut the fuck up and resume your little DUNCE seat.
#199 - truesmokewolf (04/21/2015) [-]
(I couldn't remember her name and I didn't take the time to look it up but I do highly respect Merkel. And potato pot-ah-to, they're pretty much the same fucking title.)
And have you ever heard of Ethos? I still think it's a dumb idea. The basic ideas of the Constitution are pretty simple and straightforward, limiting the Government. Added to, sure. But not changed.
#204 - truesmokewolf (04/21/2015) [-]
Yes, because I'm supposed to remember the name of a Chancellor whose never been relevant to my country's policies. Angela Merkel is not problematic or really even hardly involved with American politics and I've only really talked about her once. I am involved mostly in debates about current events because as you can see, even this one discussion with 2 other people has taken a long-ass amount of time. If I discussed every single political event or controversy in history, I'd be talking about politics all day every day.
#207 - tkfourtwoone (04/21/2015) [-]
"Angela Merkel is not problematic or really even hardly involved with American politics"
No, of course not, except for:
1) Being the Executive Leader of Europe's No. 1 economical power (and somewhere in Top 5 Global Economical Powers)
2) The NSA spying on her phone calls, because she's a fulcrum between the US and Russia
3) She has a huge saying in the TTIP agreement.
"I am involved mostly in debates about current events" - Of course, you are so involved that you don't even know who the leader of the 3rd biggest economical power is. Or why is that person relevant to US's position on the map, economically & politically speaking (since as long as Germany remains no. 1 in the EU, the German Chancellor IS the EU - just as much as US of A IS NATO)
4) Do please tell me more how being 12 is like
#211 - truesmokewolf (04/21/2015) [-]
We have very little political business with Europe's Number 1 economical power that are of controversy or discussion topics. We can talk about that but it'll probably go something like "fact" "yep, fact" "yep, fact" and what's even the point of that?
Yes, Germany is important, yes they are powerful. But are they a talking point right now that is relevant to current discussions?
#178 - astafarianp (04/21/2015) [-]
Oh they can change any part of the constitution that they want. If you get 2/3 of both houses and 3/4 of the states on board you could theoretically revise the constitution to allow for the establishment of a Monarchy. It isn't feasible obviously but nothing in the constitution is designed to be written in stone. Only afterwards has it gained a almost holy scripture attribute.
