500 Million Jobs Lost???

Maybe it was a gaff. Maybe it was sheer stupidity. Maybe a combination of both.

Nancy Pelosi commented during a press conference about the “Spendulus Bill” that if nothing is done, 500 million jobs would be lost. I was shocked that I would actually loose my current job nearly 1 1/2 times. How can that be?

Last time I checked there were roughly 300 million men, women and children in the US. Maybe Madam Speaker is counting pets and farm animals in that figure. If former President Bush would have said something like that he would have been skewered – and justly. As of now, you kind of have to search for this news. Interesting…

Of course, that’s just my opinion.

Obama Throws A Fit on National TV

I have two small children. They throw fits from time to time, not many, but they are kids. It happens.

I witnessed a site I’ve never seen before, a President of the United States actually throw a fit on national TV. This was the case tonight with President Obama speaking to the House Democrats at the Democratic Issues Conference in Williamsburg, VA. Embarrassing is the word I use.

The whole talk was meant to push many of the Senate Republicans and some Senate Democrats to pass the “Stimulus Bill.” It is the humble opinion of this poster that Mr. Obama flat out lied to the American public. During the tirade (my words), it was pointed out that this bill included no earmarks, that it was all meant to get the economy back into shape and on the road to recovery. The fact is that this is the biggest boondoggle in the history of the US, maybe the world. No earmarks? What in the world is all that pork?

If this bill is passed, this will definitely prolong the economic slump by throwing money at non-stimulus items – no doubt payback for all those who pushed for him in November. Don’t believe me, go to http://www.stimuluswatch.org/ for a total rundown of everything in this “Bill”.

We are quickly going down the road to total socialism. This is the first step to the end of the liberty we enjoy. Hope all you Kool-Aid drinkers enjoy the ride.

Of course, this is just my opinion.
