The linked "fact check" is a guy's alternative opinion on how to interpret the numbers. It is not a conclusive counter-proof.
By the time Bush Sr. got into office, the decline and fall of the USSR was already well under way. I read a fascinating article (can't find it, sorry) recently detailing how Reagan convinced the Saudis to flood the oil market; with USSR oil production taking up enough of its GDP to put it into an economic death spiral. Interestingly enough, the Saudis are once again flooding the market (according to Iran, which has been raising a small stink about it), and the Russians are still oil-dependent.

But there are a lot of very unglamorous diseases that kill more people every year. And that's my problem with these celebrity causes: they're mostly for show. A portion of profits; that is to say, just enough money that the goodwill advertising can make it back up again.
A clear sign that we are finally going to exploit the resources of our solar system.
Well, by God, we're gonna plant a flag on it and call it Freedoma.
Much cheaper than international outsourcing.
Namely, we built big fucking rockets, put people inside a little sardine can, and hit the moon with them. They took pictures, played golf, and went home. It could only be more quintessentially American if one of then died choking on a 2 pound hamburger along the trip.
"Over and Dice" are the only words I dread more on Slashdot than "Frequent contributor Bennet Haselton writes". Dear lord, I miss the Slashdot of 1999, even with all its problems.
Ok. Whatever. I guess he had a teary, apologetic news conference just for funsies.
It's not feminism anymore; it's puritanism. Another case: we landed a probe on a comet and all we can talk about is a fucking shirt.
