Don’t Worry, It’s All Bush’s Fault!! Go #1 and #2!

Michael Ramirez Cartoon

Wanna see MINORITY Leader Pelosi spout the same old parrot, I mean party, lines about how she Democrats lost 2 months ago in the worst “shellacking” in nearly a century BECAUSE IT WAS GEORGE W BUSH’S FAULT!

Yes, even in 2011 it’s still his fault! And those mean old, rich-loving obstructionist Republicans!

http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/politics/2011/01/07/jk.pelosi.dem.loss.bush.cnn

http://www.tradingeconomics.com/Economics/Unemployment-Rate.aspx?Symbol=USD

So as predicted the liberals, and especially Queen Pelosi learned ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for Nov 2nd other than what they have have known in their own heads all along, it’s not their fault!

It’s not their fault that unemployment has been over 9.4% since the Spring of 2009 (nearly 2 Bleeping years!!).

Nope, Not their fault. They were large and in-charge, but it wasn’t their fault!!

That there “economic” and “jobs” focus passing Health Care boondoggles, crushing Financial reforms, Oil Moratoriums, EPA,FDA,FCC,FTC regulatory dictatorships, and their Class Warfare and Race Warfare hasn’t doesn’t any good is because of Bush and the Republicans!

Liberals have to be the thickest, greediest, most narcissistic people on Earth.

And Liberal Politicians lead the way! And Queen Pelosi is the true Queen of them all.

President Obama insisted America was ‘digging itself out of hole’ today as new figures offered a glimmer of hope for the country’s beleaguered economy.

103,000 new jobs were created last month and the unemployment rate dropped to 9.4 percent, its lowest level in 19 months, the Labor Department said. (Daily Mail)

However, to get a true understanding of the data we must go further into the story.  For example, the economy needs to create 125,000 new jobs per month simply to keep up with the population demands for work.  You will notice that even during December, one of the highest months for hiring due to temporary retail needs, only 110,000 jobs were created, and thus there was a deficit of 15,000 jobs last month simply to stay even with the population. (Globe & Mail)

Secondly, the Labor Department does not record those unemployed who are not out actively looking for work.  Once someone falls off the unemployment benefit roles, there is no requirement to apply for jobs to ensure benefits.  When these people fall off, they are no longer counted in the unemployment data.

Still, the unemployment rate has topped 9 percent for 20 months, the longest such streak on record. And even with last year’s job gains, the unemployment rate fell only from 9.7 percent to 9.4 percent. (Daily Mail)

That would not be the “saved or created” jobs in Unions and government jobs, by the way…

So we had less employment than we need, we had by estimates something like 260,000 people stop looking (so they aren’t counted) and this was the good news!

But don’t worry, this is all Bush’s Fault too!.

And when Ben Bernacke estimates that it could be 5 years before employment levels are “normal” that too is Bush’s Fault! (and if unemployment over 8% becomes “normal” that too will be Bush’s fault).

This is the slowest recovery, if you can call it a recovery, since the 1930s. Businesses beset by the highest corporate tax burden in the world and the looming presence of ObamaCare and cap-and-trade regulation are simply marking time in an uncertain future.

Of the more than 14.5 million people out of work in December, more than 6.4 million have been out six months or longer. The mean length of time the unemployed have been out of work rose a third straight month to 34.2 weeks, the third highest level ever.

Add in those who’ve stopped looking for work or who are working part-time but want to work full-time, and the number of unemployed climbs to 26.1 million — for a jobless rate of 16.7%. (IBD)

But that too is Bush’s Fault!

If by a miracle Obama is re-elected that won’t be Bush’s fault, but the economic ruin left by ObamaCare (if it survives that long) as it kicks into high gear will be. Just wait and watch.

Obama, if re-elected will leave office in 2016, just at the point where ObamaCare really hits the gas with spending.

But that will still be Bush’s Fault if it survives The Supreme Court or the House Republicans.

Isn’t that nice to know. Your economic ruin in 2016 is because of George W. Bush!

You get the feeling that we will all be dead and the Democrats in 2111 will still be blaming Bush for everything.

Nauseating isn’t the word for it.

Unacceptable is.

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS UPDATE

The words “mother” and “father” will be removed from U.S. passport applications and replaced with gender neutral terminology, the State Department says.

“The words in the old form were ‘mother’ and ‘father,’” said Brenda Sprague, deputy assistant Secretary of State for Passport Services. “They are now ‘parent one’ and ‘parent two.’”

A statement on the State Department website noted: “These improvements are being made to provide a gender neutral description of a child’s parents and in recognition of different types of families.” The statement didn’t note if it was for child applications only. (FOX)

So my mother who passed away on Sept 29th was she #1 or #2??

Gay rights groups are applauding the decision.

“Changing the term mother and father to the more global term of parent allows many different types of families to be able to go and apply for a passport for their child without feeling like the government doesn’t recognize their family,” said Jennifer Chrisler, executive director of Family Equality Council.

Her organization lobbied the government for several years to remove the words from passport applications. (FOX)

Global Term??? What the F*ck!

So how long before Mother and Father or even ‘Parent’ is Orwellianly struck from the language?

After all, it is discriminatory!

So should we now call it the “M”-Word or the new “f-Word” or the “P” word and start re-writing classic literature like they have to Huckleberry Finn??

Mommy Dearest is now #2 Dearest? Or #1 Dearest??

I Guess TV Moms like Mrs Cleaver will just now be TV #1’s or #2’s

So what happens to “going #1” or “#2” Then?? 🙂

Sh*t Happens I guess.

Especially when Liberals have their way.

But don’t worry it’s all Bush’s Fault and the homophobic (which is anyone who might disagree with the radical gay agenda much like being  a “domestic terrorist” if you are a tea partier according to the left.)

So just remember, if you’re toaster over burns your toast or you Tasimo Brew Bot screws up your cup of morning joe that it’s George W Bush and his evil Corporate friends who screwed you!

Take comfort in the knowledge.

 

Just Say NO!

MO Says NO!

Missouri voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a federal mandate to purchase health insurance, rebuking President Barack Obama’s administration and giving Republicans their first political victory in a national campaign to overturn the controversial health care law passed by Congress in March.

“The citizens of the Show-Me State don’t want Washington involved in their health care decisions,” said Sen. Jane Cunningham, R-Chesterfield, one of the sponsors of the legislation that put Proposition C on the August ballot. She credited a grass-roots campaign involving Tea Party and patriot groups with building support for the anti-Washington proposition.

With most of the vote counted, Proposition C was winning by a ratio of nearly 3 to 1. The measure, which seeks to exempt Missouri from the insurance mandate in the new health care law, includes a provision that would change how insurance companies that go out of business in Missouri liquidate their assets.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” Cunningham said at a campaign gathering at a private home in Town and Country. “Citizens wanted their voices to be heard.”

Missouri was the first of four states to seek to opt out of the insurance purchase mandate portion of the health care law that had been pushed by Obama. And while many legal scholars question whether the vote will be binding, the overwhelming approval gives the national GOP momentum as Arizona, Florida and Oklahoma hold similar votes during midterm elections in November.(STL Today)

So it’s time for the Feds to Sue another State to enforce their Supremacy. 🙂

And then there’s Viriginia. Possible Arizona (again), Florida,and Oklahoma.

Texas and several other states have lawsuits pending against ObamaCare.

Pretty soon they’ll have to sue everyone to enforce their supremacy.

But that won’t be a Banana Republic Dictatorship now will it?  Oh no! :0

That will be Bush’s Fault! 🙂

****************

THE STIMULUS

Remember that wunderkind of  Keynesian economics that would create millions of jobs and unemployment would not go above 8%??

Well,  not so much. There is now yet another report out on even more waste, fraud and abuse of that money. Big surprise there.

But don’t worry, ObamaCare will lower premiums, lower the deficit and foster world peace. Oh, and make your toast in the morning! 🙂

“Of course the recipients of these taxpayer dollars will complain and justify the reason for receiving these funds,” McCain said. “The question should be posed, how many jobs did this create? And obviously with these projects, little or none.”

And Remember, the signs touting these projects (like the 1 week project to repave the street near me) cost $10,000 each!

But for that week, there were jobs “saved or created”.

Rejoice!

White House Spokesperson Liz Oxhorn said the Obama administration will review the claims of the report, but it is not prepared to immediately accept the conclusion that these projects were misguided….this isn’t about partisan ‘reports’ or a single project – it’s about a choice between returning to the failed policies of the past or building on solutions like the Recovery Act that are moving America forward.”

Obama’s New Campaign slogan: It Could have been Worse– it could have been Bush! It’s all Bush’s Fault!

BUSH Made Me do it! 😦

Seriously!

So if you want to return to the Bush Doctrine, vote for Republicans.

It’s bloody August 2010, and the President has been in office now 19 months and the Democrats have controlled Congress from 3 1/2 years But it’s still Bush’s Fault!!! 😦

I hope you’re not dumb enough to fall for that. I known partisan Democrats are, there’s no hope for them.

“Eighteen months since the passage of the stimulus bill, millions of jobs are still gone and the economy is as uncertain as ever. The only thing getting a boost is our national debt. The stimulus has helped push it 23 percent higher, to $13.2 trillion, a new record.”

But remember, that’s all Bush’s Fault!  You wouldn’t want a repeat of Bush’s Fault by voting out Democrats in November now would you? 🙂

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs was asked for a reaction. Here’s his exchange with a reporter:
REPORTER: Do you think it’s a credible report?
MR. GIBBS:  From what I’ve read, no.

So what are some of these dream jobs:

There’s $4.7 million for Lockheed Martin to study supersonic corporate jet travel. More than $210,000 for the National Institutes of Health to study the sex lives of college students. And roughly $233,000 for California college students to conduct exit polls in Africa about voting patterns.

• $554,763 for the Forest Service to replace windows in a closed visitor center at Mount St. Helens
• $762,372 to create “Dance Draw” interactive dance software
• $62 million for a tunnel to nowhere in Pittsburgh, PA that even Governor, Ed Rendell called “a tragic mistake”
• $1.9 million for international ant research
• $1.8 million for a road project that is threatening a pastor’s home
• $308 million for a joint clean energy venture with…BP
• $89,298 to replace a new sidewalk that leads to a ditch in Boynton, OK

$298,543 to predict the weather on other planets.

$363,000  to National Institute of Health to promote The Stimulus itself. The NIH? That’s a curious choice. And if this was before the Health Care “reform” passed makes it even more curious.

And since the government spent $700,000 to promote ObamaCare via Andy Griffith.

So how does a Billion dollars in PR for their socialism create new jobs?

It doesn’t. But it works for them.

$144,541 for Wake Forest University scientists to give monkeys cocaine and see what happens. Even scarier: they’re having the monkeys administer the coke themselves. No word yet if part of the cost is allocated to rolled up hundred dollar bills.

$712,883 to build a machine that tells jokes (presumably funnier than the ones Coburn and McCain tried to crack in this report).

$294,958 on a program to reduce menopausal hot flashes with yoga classes.

$1.2 million for research how elderly people react to playing video games.

$180,935 to discover a better method for freezing rat sperm.

$112,437 for three high school students and three college students to study alcohol in laboratories (read: pound shots out of test tubes)

McCain cited $500,000 for Arizona State University to “study the genetic makeup of ants to determine distinctive roles within the ant colony” and another $450,000 to “study division of labor in ant colonies and develop a model for humans to determine the optimal strategy for distributing a specialist in a variable work environment.”

Dana Perino, a conservative, on Hannity last night said (not in a good way)  “Even if half of them are false, that means half of them are accurate”.

Media Matters, the George Soros funded Uber-Leftist socialist site used this as a headline attacking the report!

On uber-leftist blogger even said that if it was put out by a republican it must therefore on it’s face be a lie. Period. End of Story. 🙂

Isn’t partisan cognitive dissonance  fun? 😦

And remember, these are the “open minded” and “fair” Liberals….  who are way smarter than you and are way better at running your life for you. 🙂

Happy Birthday, Mr. Stimulus

It’s time to blow out the candle on the One Year Anniversary (Belatedly I know) of the Greatest Economic Recovery Program ever created, The Stimulus Package, Over $800 Billion dollars over pure Liberal love that saved not only the country but the universe itself!

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland: The Recovery Act has already worked to save or create as many as 2.4 million jobs, according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office.  In one year, the Recovery Act has provided $120 billion in tax cuts for 95% of working families as well as businesses across the country; loaned nearly $20 billion to small businesses to expand and create jobs; funded more than 12,500 transportation projects nationwide; kept teachers, police officers, and firefighters on the job; and accomplished much more. (USAToday)

The Greatest thing since sliced bread!

“So far, the Recovery Act is responsible for the jobs of about 2 million Americans who would otherwise be unemployed.” — President Obama

  • Context:  Both government and private economists have made wide-ranging estimates for jobs created and saved by the stimulus. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), for example, has estimated that the stimulus was responsible for between 800,000 and 2.4 million jobs in 2009. The White House Council of Economic Advisers pegs the range at between 1.5 million and 2 million

What is “saved or created” but Orwellian BS??

“We gave relief to states that were struggling to balance their budgets — relief that has allowed 300,000 teachers and education workers to keep their jobs, as well as tens of thousands of cops and firefighters and first responders and correctional officers.” — Obama

  • Context: About 389,000 jobs were reported saved or created in the last quarter of 2009 by recipients of $25.5 billion in aid from the Education Department. But funding runs out in 2011, leaving some states and school districts worried that they will have to cut programs and lay off teachers. “That’s something that we’re watching and we’re concerned about,” Obama said. For example, Education Secretary Arne Duncan visited a Virginia school Wednesday, touting a stimulus-funded program that provides extra classroom time for students. That program will be eliminated next year, however. “It’s not because we didn’t think this was a good program,” Fairfax County school spokesman Paul Regnier said. “There isn’t enough money.”

So you’re just delaying the  inevitable.

Charles Krauthammer:  This idea of jobs saved or created — the Bureau of Labor Statistics has hundreds of numbers and statistics. It does not have a statistic dealing with, say, jobs. And the reason is that it can’t be measured. It doesn’t exist. It’s a fiction.

The administration repeats it saved a million jobs, a million and a half or two million. All we know for sure is that the huge expenditures that were given to states to bail out the ones that had overspent or were almost bankrupt did for a year or two of the stimulus keep a lot of bureaucrats and state governments employed.

So, perhaps you could say, well, in the midst of a real recession you wanted to bottom out the trough, but $1 trillion dollars is a high price for a very small and temporary effect.

Mort Kondrake: Now, the problem here is that if the Obama administration claims that 2 million jobs have been saved, let’s accept that, that number, although we can’t prove it. You spend $282 billion — if my math is correct, that’s something like $140,000 per job saved, which seems like an awful lot of money.

Brett BAIER: Charles, quickly, the administration and top Democrats on Capitol Hill are not calling it another stimulus, but the jobs bill is shaping up to be much like the first one, isn’t it?

KRAUTHAMMER: It’s exactly the same idea with a new name. They understand that stimulus is not good PR. People hate stimulus. As you said, six percent believe it worked, seven percent of Americans believe Elvis is alive, so it’s, you know, neck and neck in those two beliefs.

They rename it a jobs bill. It’s the same idea. And I think there is a lot of skepticism as to whether you can really have a government create a job that is going to be a real job as opposed to just hanging on to a bureaucratic job for a year or two.(FoxNews)

So here it is by the Numbers (atr.org):

$787 billion      size of the “stimulus” package as signed into law on February 17, 2010
$862 billion     size of the “stimulus” package per CBO’s updated January review
$288 billion     claimed total tax cut amount in “stimulus” package
$214.6 billion     actual total tax cut amount in “stimulus” package (some of the tax cuts were in fact spending)
3.6 million     jobs “stimulus” package was supposed to create per the Administration’s estimations
3.3 million     number of jobs lost since signing of “stimulus” package
67,000          number of federal civilian employees added since “stimulus” package was signed
$270.7          billion cost to taxpayers* for these new government employees
7.6 percent     unemployment rate at signing of “stimulus” package
8 percent     rate under which unemployment was supposed to be held with “stimulus” package in place
10.2 percent     highest unemployment rate since signing of “stimulus” package
9.7 percent     current unemployment rate
440             number of non-existing Congressional districts in which the “stimulus” package was supposed to  have “saved and created” jobs according to Recovery.gov
$224,525.22     cost per job “saved or created” in 440 phantom districts
94,341 (and counting) number of jobs clearly not saved/created by “stimulus” package
6 percent     number of Americans who think the “stimulus” package has actually created jobs
$17 billion     Cost added to “stimulus” package due to Davis-Bacon prevailing wage requirements

It worked so well, let’s call Stimulus II: the Sequel a “Jobs” bill!

Orwell would be proud.

And aren’t you happy that all that debt was worth it!! 🙂

Stimulation of Human Errors

Washington Post 4/12/09: “This plan cannot and will not be an excuse for waste and abuse,” President Obama declared last month, after he designated Vice President Biden the “sheriff” in charge of patrolling for misuse of stimulus funds.

When the whole point of a major government spending program is to stimulate the faltering economy as quickly as possible, what exactly counts as “wasted” money? After all, if some stimulus cash is misspent — say an errant official or contractor buys himself a Cadillac or a Harley Davidson, only to suffer the full force of law — might not such fraud boost the economy more than if the cash languished in a law-abiding state account? All that monitoring, however well-intentioned, may undercut recovery by compelling officials to spend more slowly to avoid hearings, prosecution, or embarrassment in the media.

Officials tracking the money recognize the dilemma. “We want this money to be spent, and yet it has to be spent in ways that are consistent with the purpose of the act,” said Chris Mihm, managing director for strategic issues at the Government Accountability Office. “It’s something that we’re struggling with.”

Now: IBD

We knew something was funny when the White House claimed that 640,000 to 1 million jobs had been created from this year’s stimulus. What we didn’t know was that it would turn into a massive fraud.

Not only have 640,000 new jobs not been created from the stimulus — an absurd claim, given the economy’s loss of nearly 4 million payroll positions this year — but it now seems that even the jobs themselves are fictional.

Thanks to the digging of a number of data sleuths, it turns out that many of the jobs reported by states come from made-up congressional districts.

One example: the 15th Congressional District of Arizona, where 30 jobs were salvaged with $761,420 in spending, according to Recovery.gov, the official government Web site. As ABC News reports: “There is no 15th Congressional District in Arizona; the state has only eight districts.”

ABC: Job creation is claimed in more than 400 congressional districts that simply do not exist, some of whose existence — the 99th congressional district in the U.S. territory of the Northern Mariana Islands, for instance — is preposterous.

KDVR-TV DENVER, Colo. – Have you ever heard of Colorado’s “00” Congressional District?

Neither has anyone else, except for the federal agency assigned to dole out the $787 billion stimulus plan. In fact the “00” Congressional District received more than $10 million in stimulus funds.

The mythical 64th CD got $33,195 according to recovery.gov, which allows the public to “Track the Money” online. The website lists 14 jobs created in the non-existent 64th.

Regarding the data purporting to create jobs in congressional districts that don’t exist, Ed Pound a spokesman for the Recovery board said,“Some recipients clearly don’t know what congressional district they live in.”

D’oh! 🙂

States as diverse as Kansas, New Mexico, New Hampshire, Ohio, Minnesota and West Virginia also reported phony jobs.

Stimulus jobs were also reported in 35 congressional districts in Washington, D.C., and four U.S. territories. The problem: None of those jurisdictions even has congressional districts.

All told, according to the useful Web site Watchdog.org, some $6.4 billion was spent to “create or save” 30,000 jobs in phantom districts. That comes out to about $225,000 per nonexistent job. And that’s only what’s been found so far.

Some cases were egregious. California’s state university system took in $268.5 million in stimulus funds, claiming it “saved” 26,000 jobs. It has since admitted that few, if any, jobs were really at risk.

Detroit Free Press:

“It looks to us like the program is unfolding much as we hoped in Michigan,” said White House economic adviser Jared Bernstein.

The Free Press examination of more than 1,800 government reports of those who have received or expect to receive stimulus money found the biggest impact was spurring or protecting public-sector or summer jobs — not private-sector jobs. Michigan has the nation’s worst unemployment rate.

Officials reported that by Sept. 30, some 22,500 Michigan jobs were created or retained thanks to the promise of $5.2 billion in stimulus money for the state, $1.2 billion of which had arrived.

The analysis also found:

• Three of every four stimulus grants, contracts and loans approved in Michigan created or retained one job or less.

• Fewer than 700 awards had received some money, and nearly half of those — 327 — had created one job or less, at a cost per job of $2.7 million.

• Some job estimates were wrong: General Motors Co., for instance, reported 105 jobs saved or created for a government purchase of 5,000 vehicles but later said no jobs were saved or created. The City of Detroit reported 342 jobs it now says were projections — not jobs already created or retained.

Detroit reported on a grant award — $10 million for work on 14 improvement projects in the city — saying 342 jobs had been saved or created, despite none of the money actually reaching the city yet. Last week, city officials told the Free Press those were only projections — not jobs saved or created.

The Ingham County Health Department reported 97.49 jobs retained, but an official with the agency said without the funding, six jobs would have been lost.

I want to know about that .49 of a job. Don’t you? 🙂

Other examples:

• A company working with the Federal Communications Commission reported that stimulus money paid for 4,231 jobs, when about 1,000 were produced.

• A Georgia community college reported creating 280 jobs with recovery money, but none was created from stimulus spending.

• A Florida child care center said its stimulus money saved 129 jobs but used the money on raises for existing employees.

If I give you a raise, it is going to save a portion of your job,” HHS spokesman Luis Rosero said.

That counts, doesn’t it. 🙂

The White House reportedly blames the errors on, among other things, accounting problems, and not fraud.

Oh, really? 🙂

On Friday (Oct 30th), the Obama administration released the most detailed information yet on the jobs created by the stimulus. Of the 640,239 jobs recipients claimed to have created or saved so far, officials said, more than half — 325,000 — were in education.

Not that there jobs were really threatened, but paying of f the NEA for their support is always a good think for liberals to do.

NY Times: “We can’t make the statement that they were created or retained,” Mr. Johnston said. Indiana, he said had followed federal guidelines in reporting how many full-time jobs were paid for with the stimulus money, which also paid for education supplies and other expenses. And while New York City officials have said the stimulus helped them save thousands of teaching jobs, it would have been politically difficult for Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg to actually lay off that many teachers while running for re-election.

He narrowly won. 🙂

The government’s response to all this? “Human beings make mistakes,” shrugged Recovery Board spokesman Ed Pound on Monday.

Oh, of course they do. We’re sorry for doubting you. Please accept our apologies. We’ll just go away and let you get on with your saving of mankind… 🙂

How dare we question your integrity or your veracity. 🙂

ABC: Ed DeSeve, senior advisor to the president for Recovery Act implementation, said he’d been “scrubbing” the job estimates so much since they came it at the beginning of the month that he now has “dishpan hands and my fingers are worn to the nub.”

The White House argues that the actual job number is actually larger than 640,000 — closer to 1 million jobs when one factors in stimulus jobs added in October and, more importantly, jobs created indirectly, such as “the waitress who’s still on the job,” Vice President Biden said today.

So let’s see. Assuming their number is right — 160 billion divided by 1 million. Does that mean the stimulus costs taxpayers $160,000 per job?

Jared Bernstein, chief economist and senior economic advisor to the vice president, called that “calculator abuse.”

It’s abuse alright, just not of a poor, hapless calculator.

NBC: Improper payments by the U.S. government to people, firms and contractors rose sharply to $98 billion in fiscal 2009 and President Barack Obama plans new rules to clamp down, the White House said Tuesday.

Now imagine all of this had occurred under George W. Bush.

Can you see the Special Prosecutors, the Calls for Impeachment, the 24 hour News Exposes, the endless headlines?

Yes.

But what do we get now, bored disinterest and lame excuses that your mother wouldn’t buy.

The media is far more interested in Sarah Palin’s new Book to give a crap about this.

“Imagine that,” the post read. “11 AP reporters dedicating time and resources to tearing up the book, instead of using the time and resources to ‘fact check’ what’s going on with Sheik Mohammed’s trial, Pelosi’s health care takeover costs, Hasan’s associations, etc. Amazing.”

So what’s there ultimate answer: Hey, lets SPEND EVEN MORE!

Because the unemployment rate is still climbing well above the 8% promised by the president if we accepted the stimulus: OBAMA:  in December, we’ll be holding a forum at the White House on jobs and economic growth. We’ll gather CEOs and small business owners, economists and financial experts, as well as representatives from labor unions and nonprofit groups, to talk about how we can work together to create jobs and get this economy moving again….On November 6 in the Rose Garden, Obama said that his economic team “is looking at ideas such as additional investments in our aging roads and bridges, incentives to encourage families and businesses to make building more energy-efficient…aka spending and regulation.

Gee, I thought that was what the stimulus was suppose to already have done?

maybe we can tax the people from those non-existent congressional districts?

Or send even more money to them to create more jobs there. 🙂

I guess that was another “human error”. 🙂

And the fact that a lot of the stimulus money was convienently  slated for the Congressional election year of 2010 is also just that, a coincidence.

Right. 🙂

It’s all very “transparent”…

And can we fire the Sheriff? and his Boss while we’re at it? 🙂
