It seems to me that this country would do well to stay away from listening to the liberal mindset, that says we are always going from one crisis to another.
If we really sat back and looked at how the last 100 years went for America, you would see just how good this country has done. If you wish to see some examples of how this country has done well over the last 100 years here is something that *sorry you libs* came from the Rush Limbaugh show today. This is something, that even if you libs would listen too, you would see what I am talking about.
But anyway back to the last hundred years, or last 50 years, people want growth or whatever they think is going to get us and them out of a recession. The telephone. It took 71 years after the invention of the telephone for 50% of the American people in homes to be able to afford one, to get one; 71 years before half the country had a phone. It took 52 years before the half the country had electricity. Think of that. Electricity is invented. Fifty-two years before half the country had it. Radios. Twenty-eight years before half the country had radios. Personal computers. Nineteen years before half the country had a personal computer. Can you see the progression? Seventy-one for telephones, 52 for electricity, 28 for radios. You know what that is? That’s prosperity, folks. That is rapid economic growth. Color televisions: 18 years before half the country had a color tube in their house. Cable television: 15 years before half the country was wired. Cell phones: 14 years before half of American homes had cell phones. VCRs: 12 years before half the country had VCRs. CD players: 11 years before half the country had one. Internet access: ten years.
So we go from 71 years for half the country to get a phone to ten years after it’s invented, for half the country to get Internet access. DVD players: five years. After five years, half the country had DVD players. Number one, at the top of the techno list: iPods. Four years is all it took for half the country to have iPods. In real dollars, they’re no more expensive than what telephones were or electricity. Four years. So you can see, 71, 52, 28, 19, 18, 15, 14, 12, 11, ten, five, four. That represents massive economic growth, massive prosperity, massive discretionary spending on the part of at least half of the country — and for this kind of growth to continue, energy prices have to be market related, and energy has to be plentiful and so forth. All these things are just… Whenever I find evidence of the absolute power and greatness of this country economically, I love to pass it on.
Now, on this I have to say when I hear news of the greatness of this country, I too love to pass it on. And this is great news people. Great news on the health of this country!
So, I wish that you liberals would stop with the negative thinking, and get something positive in your heads for once. You might be surprised at how your outlook on life here in America would improve……..
God Bless America
