We tend to do that after people die. That's why some people think that John Bonham is the great R&R drummer ever. :-?

A $4k increase over 8 years is not bad, especially if inflation was reduced. For comparison, the median household income during the Clinton years increased from $38k to $43k which is about a $5K increase. Keep in mind that Reagan had to recover from a depression while Clinton was reaping the benefits of steady growth.


As for Pujols, he's still listed as day to day. They were even thinking about using him in a pinch so maybe he won't go on the DL.

Staying off all politics:

1. I hope Pujols is OK.

2. Craig Biggio is one of the most under-appreciated players of our time. He's a Hall of Famer easily, in my book.

If you honestly think that Clinton's legacy will be stronger than Reagan's, you are fooling yourself. Thus I certainly wouldn't expect any more extensive dialogue than you see here, on the fantasy baseball talk forum cerca 2025

Yes! So cool! Finally someone else who feels the same way about Bidge as I do.

And why should there be less remerence of Clinton when he dies then Reagan? I personally get sick of it all for anyone, but Clinton was a much better president (maybe not the better husband, heh heh)

what was the GDP... i.e. what does the .5% translate to?

I guess I am one of the one's who is fooling myself. Clinton is an economic genious. Reagonomics or should I say "trickle down economics" does not work and did not work. Don't get me wrong, he was a good president and did have a a better foreign policy than the clown that we have today but when you talk about economics, Clinton will be remembered.

And when you talk about GDP, etc..did you also notice:

"In The 1980s saw the income of the richest five percent increase by one-third, while the income of the poorest 10 percent fell by one-tenth. In this period, the income share of the poorest fifth fell to the lowest it had been since the 1950s, and the income share of the middle class fell to its lowest since World War II. The richest fifth, meanwhile, amassed greater wealth than ever before, receiving nearly 50 percent of America's income."

There is your GDP and Growth....

Anyway, this is a FB forum right? Sorry for the side track..

Pujols is a stud. He'll be back and mashing by the weekend.

I'll always remember Clinton as the guy who let Bin Laden go pre-9/11.

man, I am a BIG biggio hater. I have been playing for three years and have gotten terrible offers including him each year.

But gotta give him props, his stats are good, yet everyone discounts them, and ?I don't know why.

he and konerko were traded for hillenbrand and dave roberts today, and for the first time thought biggio was undervalued....
