Obama will do what Obama wants to do, not for the betterment of the country but for the betterment of Obama. He'll do that just because he doesn't know what else to do. I'm sure his heart is in the right place, but we all know about the road to hell and what is paved with. Obama's problem, and it will continue to be a problem for another two years are Pelosi and Reid. Obama can't lead his own party, how can he lead a nation? Obama owes way too much to special interest groups.
It's easy to bash Bush because his special interest groups were big Corporations. Obama's are harder because they are the labor unions, teachers union, and activists like NARL, Emily's list, Code Pink, Daily Kos. How can you transpose all the ill of the world on teachers but it's so easy to put that blame on a CEO. Obama is simply too indebted to special interest groups to make a tough decision. He is looking ahead to 2012 not doing what needs to be done now. Look at the Stimulus Bill. Making Work Pay is a joke, they tried that last year. It didn't work then, so what makes them think it will work now. For Heaven's sake Obama claimed that he wrote that failed experiment, yet no one is calling him on it.
"In January, I outlined a plan to help revive our faltering economy, which formed the basis for a bipartisan stimulus package that passed the Congress."
--Barack Obama, Golden, Co., Sept. 16, 2008.

If his plan was the basis for the stimulus checks, then we already know his ideas amount to complete and utter BULLSHIT! All those new roads and new paint jobs will contribute jack shit when inflation kicks in and small business and companies have to lay even more people off because inventory prices skyrocket.
Democrats think that if they keep on harping on something long enough, all evidence that disproves their claims will magically go away. Look at Al Gore for Christ's sake. He is giving testimony today on global warming, when half the damn country is in the middle of an ice storm. It makes you want to bang your head against the wall. Yet Obama and Gore will keep doing what a lot of people know won't work because they are too indebted to a special interest to stop.

I'm putting this up here because it shows the insanity of the Obama Administration:

Restore Fiscal Discipline to Washington

  • Reinstate PAYGO Rules: President Obama and Vice President Biden believe that a critical step in restoring fiscal discipline is enforcing pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) budgeting rules which require new spending commitments or tax changes to be paid for by cuts to other programs or new revenue.
  • Reverse Tax Cuts for the Wealthy: Obama and Biden will protect tax cuts for poor and middle class families, but they will reverse most of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest taxpayers.
  • Cut Pork Barrel Spending: As a Senator, President Obama introduced and passed bipartisan legislation that would require more disclosure and transparency for special-interest earmarks. Obama and Biden believe that spending that cannot withstand public scrutiny cannot be justified. Obama and Biden will slash earmarks to no greater than 1994 levels and ensure all spending decisions are open to the public.
  • Make Government Spending More Accountable and Efficient: Obama and Biden will ensure that federal contracts over $25,000 are competitively bid. Obama and Biden will also increase the efficiency of government programs through better use of technology, stronger management that demands accountability and by leveraging the government's high-volume purchasing power to get lower prices.
  • End Wasteful Government Spending: Obama and Biden will stop funding wasteful, obsolete federal government programs that make no financial sense. Obama and Biden have called for an end to subsidies for oil and gas companies that are enjoying record profits, as well as the elimination of subsidies to the private student loan industry which has repeatedly used unethical business practices. Obama and Biden will also tackle wasteful spending in the Medicare program.
How long before that website is washed?

Stimulate this....

Will the Stimulus work?

I don't think so. Not the way it's written by the Dems.
Obama's Making work pay is an end of year credit attached to the tax refund, alomst like the one they tried last year, the one that did not work. A tax credit will not stimulate the average consumer to spend more overall. It's a one time pop, that I know I will be using to pay bills. A lot of people will be paying bills with their tax refund. It won't make me want to spend more money over the course of the year, which is what the economy will need to get back on track. My one time pop will not cause Best Buy to hire hundreds of workers, nor will Sam's Club be hiring just for my tax refund check.

What we need is a lowering of the tax brackets. Giving me an extra $50 - $100 dollars bi weekly will cause me to spend differently. It will cause me to spend more, as I'll have more disposable income. Of course common sense like that goes out of the window, since Pelosi think Planned Parenthood will stimulate the economy.
Rep. Eric Cantor (R., Va.) misspoke earlier today when he said that the Democrats' bill contains $4 in spending on landscaping for the National Mall for every $1 in small business tax relief. In fact, it contains $5 for landscaping the National Mall for every dollar in small business tax relief.
Deficit spending is not the answer. Government cannot grow money. It has to be printed. Printing more money to spend will only lead to inflation. Any raise in inflation rates will kill any stimulative effect the bill has. It's very simple even a Democrat can figure it out. You can give everyone an extra $500 but when the price of bread, milk, and meat goes up and extra $0.50 over the course of the year, that person is even more screwed than if you didn't give him that $500. Of course logic has no place in Reid's Senate or Pelosi's House.
Obama's new chairwoman of the Council of Economic Advisors, Christina Romer, is among those skeptical of the idea that it does. In 1994, Romer co-authored a technical 72-page economics paper titled "What Ends Recessions," containing specific warnings about the limitations of deficit spending in saving the economy. Her conclusion: "Although there is substantial variation in the estimates of policies' impact, the results suggest that monetary policy has been crucial in ending recessions, while fiscal policy has contributed very little."
Republicans need to stick to their guns. It's a fine line they have to walk, I don't know if they can pull it off. If they can pressure Obama into changing the Stimulus into something that might actually stimulate the economy, we might get out of it in 2 years. Otherwise, while we will be rid of Reid and Pelosi in 2010, we will all be too fucked to care.

A lobbyist by any other name...

Google is locked cocked and ready to lobby.
"Google is not just a benign corporate entity. It has a variety of special interests," said Jeff Chester, the executive director of the Center for Digital Democracy, who has sparred with Google over data-privacy issues. "They're in a great position to push their agenda through with the support of the president and the Democrats in Congress."
New Politics right?
President Barack Obama's ban on earmarks in the $825 billion economic stimulus bill doesn't mean interest groups, lobbyists and lawmakers won't be able to funnel money to pet projects.

They're just working around it — and perhaps inadvertently making the process more secretive.

Oh and let's not forget, the new Ethics Rules.
The Obama administration has given an ethics waiver for Bill Lynn, a Defense Department nominee who is a former lobbyist.

In a written statement released moments ago, Armed Service Committee Chairman Carl Levin said the administration "has removed an obstacle to the confirmation of Bill Lynn to be Deputy Secretary of Defense by waiving the provisions of President Obama's Executive Order on Ethics Commitments that would have precluded Mr. Lynn's service."

At least Sen Levin and McCain called Obama out on it.
The move immediately drew criticism from Sen. John McCain, the top Republican on the Armed Services Committee. "I am disappointed in President Obama's decision to waive the 'revolving door' provisions of the executive order for Mr. Bill Lynn," he said in a written statement. "While I applaud the President's action to implement new, more stringent ethical rules, I had hoped he would not find it necessary to waive them so soon."
And Levin said he will delay confirmation. Still is this the change we are all waiting for?

Another note on GITMO. I really can't help myself. I am passionate that we are never attacked again on US soil. Here is an idea for all those Leftys that want GITMO closed because it looks bad. Let them adopt a detainee!
GAP (GITMO Adoption Program)
Option 1: Let any person that says GITMO should be closed because of a "Stain" on the US or because Europeans think bad of us for GITMO, take one of the more than 200 detaines into their homes and rehabilitate them.
Option 2: Send them to Alcatraz. NIMBY will be in full effect and maybe Pelosi will get voted out because of it.

Let them put their money where there mouth is. I really doubt it will fly. You know when rhetoric meets reality, reality demands tough choices. Obama is learning that right now.

A word on Pelosi. I can't tell anyone how much this woman drives me crazy. She claims the Stimulus Bill is "bipartisan" yet just the other day she said, "Yes, we wrote the bill. Yes, we won the election." Even Obama, who is the new bastion of bipartisanship said the same, "I won" when asked about GOP involvment in the Stimulus Bill.
With the victor comes the spoils. Yet with the victor also comes the responsibility. Obama now own the Stimulus via "I won" response. Obama owns GITMO. I'm sure we will all hear about how Bush got us into this mess until the cows come home. The clock is ticking. If Obama can't do anything to help the economy by 2010, we will have new House and Senate leadership via a slew of new Republicans forming a new majority. Obama will have to work bipartisan then. This democratic tyranny of the majority, that the Dems are calling Bipartisanship if pure Orwellian. It's too bad the average voter recieved a good Liberal education, and never had to read 1984.

Sunday Morning Post

It's really nice to see how tolerant the Obamaniacs are.

In case you missed it, when President George W. Bush was announced to the crowd, some booed loudly, shocking even the commentators on the official Obama network, MSNBC. One section of onlookers sang, "Nah nah nah nah, hey hey hey, goodbye." And, finally, as Bush left the White House, one deep thinker took the opportunity to give the "one-finger salute," thus saying more about himself than anything else.

This from a movement that fancies itself all about peace, love and global karma.

Stay classy San Diego. So is dissent still Patriotic?

So much for the "responsibility" era, that Obama was supposed to bring to the country. So much for a "New Politics." Unless of course you were like me and knew that "New Politics" really means the Chicago Way.
Look at the Stimulus Bill. If anything needs a "New" way it's that.
"We're being a little too politically sensitive to the conservative right," said Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy (D-R.I.), drifting well off the new administration's message. "Coming to the middle on a political spectrum does not make it right."

At which point the House of Representatives fell back into its comfortable partisan ways: The majority pushed its bill through committees last week on largely party-line votes, and the minority complained that it had been railroaded.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi summoned her no-nonsense voice to remind the losers of how majority rule works: "Yes, we wrote the bill. Yes, we won the election." (The California Democrat then remembered to add: "That doesn't mean we don't want ... bipartisan support.")
I agree with Rep. Boehner, the bill is little more than "liberal Democrat ideas that were stuck in the back of a cabinet somewhere." Of course when the CBO report came out and it wasn't what the Democrats wanted to hear. The report that projected less than half of the $355 billion that House Democrats would spend to create jobs through infrastructure programs and other efforts is likely to be used before the end of fiscal 2010, had to immediately be ignored by the Dem Leadership. It needs to be bigger they say. $13 billion for formula grants to increase the federal share of special education costs and prevent these mandatory costs from forcing states to cut other areas of education. How much of that will be going straight to the Teachers Unions, then right back to House and Senate Democrats as "Campaign Contributions?"

As for GITMO, Barry screwed the pouch. He caved in to the anti-war left. When we are attacked, all those anti-war code pinkers will all be yelling, "It's not my fault." I really do hope that Obama screws everyone, closes GITMO, open another detention area and sends all those prisoners to some pacific island 300 miles from nowhere.
He can't free them (see Said Ali al-Shihri), most of their own countries don't want them. Sending them to Egypt and Yemen will amount to Extraordinary Rendition, which he said he wouldn't do. So what send them to Fort Levenworth? Ha I'd like to see anyone welcome those detainees to their homes. Maybe we should start a Code Pink/Detainee Big Brother program. Everyone that wants the prisoners free, will have to take one in and try to rehabilitate them with love and kindness. It'll will kill two birds with one stone.

If you're under 30 and not a liberal you don't have a heart. If you're over 30
and not a conservative, you don't have a brain.

Winston is absolutly right. It took me almost 30 years. (I voted McCain 7 days before my 30th birthday) Maybe it's because I'm married and own a house. A house that I knew going in that I could afford. I don't relay on welfare or any government assistance. I want my taxes low so I can make capital improvments on my home. I don't want the government to mandate that I switch out lightblubs or replace thermostats, I do it because it saves me money. I have 4 dogs that fart a lot just to increase my carbon footprint thank you.

Why do I feel it's my obligation to criticize Obama? Take it away Churchill

Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same
function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of

I Pledge Allegiance to the Obama...

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, those bastions of wisdom and virtue, have made video pledge to the Great One, Obama.
Kneel before Zod!
Does Obama has a Presidential Ring complete with the Seal yet? I'm sure Kutcher would be the first one to get on his knees and kiss the ring, swear his oath of fealty. The US is obviously only here to serve the Obama, not the other way around.
Creepy isn't a strong enough word to use to describe the video. Psychotic might be better one.
Does anyone remember the Hitler Youth? Probably not, I have serious doubts about celebrities anyway but this make me lose all hope. It's not cool to pledge to the nation, but pledging to Obama, now that's cool. Give me a break, these celebrities need to get over themselves. How many of them rushed to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina?
Micheal Strahan why?

Heaven Help us all, if these moonbats have any influence on policy.

Day 1

Less than half the money dedicated to highways, school construction and other infrastructure projects in a massive economic stimulus package unveiled by House Democrats is likely to be spent within the next two years, according to congressional budget analysts, meaning most of the spending would come too late to lift the nation out of recession.
That is from a new CBO report on the Stimulus (Pork) Omnibus bill. The CBO reports that less than half the $355 billion for infrastructure spending will be dispersed before 2010, when the CBO predicts the economy will turn.
For example, of $30 billion in highway spending, less than $4 billion would occur over the next two years. Of $18.5 billion proposed for renewable energy, less than $3 billion would be spent by 2011. And of $14 billion for school construction, less than $7 billion would be spent in the first two years.
Just in time to help raise inflation and keep this "national emergency" according to Alxerod going for another 4 years. Of course going into the 2010 elections, I'm sure we will hear about how much more time the Dems need to fix what they helped break. Going into the 2012 elections, inflation will start raising, the FED will have to raise interest rates to combat inflation, causing job loss. Perfect for Obama to role out a new Stimulus (pork) omnibus bill to save another economic "national emergency."

This is Day One of the Obama Administration. 6 months ago I was hoping this day would never come, or at least wait another 4 to 8 years. I will try to make the best of it. Dissent is still patriotic. No matter what the liberal hypocrites say now.

Princess Caroline withdraws her name for Hillary's Senate Seat.
So there is a god. The last thing we need is more Camelot. I'm Cameloted to death. Every time we hear about JKF, all we hear a tale of roses and sunshine. Bullshit. JFK was dirty, the whole family is dirty. Correct me if I'm wrong but seems like Caroline is the only Kennedy that hasn't had a sex scandal. Joseph Kennedy used to praise Hilter, got his money from running booze during Prohibition and has the distinction of being the First inside trader, pulling out huge sums right before the 1929 collapse.

JFK and Bobby got more poon than Bill Clinton. JFK lead the US into Vietnam by increasing the number of U.S. military in Vietnam from 800 to 16,300. He tried and failed to invade Cuba. JFK was elected on false pretenses and voter fraud. I'll stop there. I could go on for a while. Needless to say, I don't hold the Kennedy clan in high regard. I'm very happy Caroline isn't gong to be a Senator anytime soon.

The Speech
There are lots of different reaction to Obama's inaugural address. It all depends on your ideological bent; if you voted for him then you probably had goosebumps going up your leg. If your like me and didn't vote for the guy, your reaction could be like mine, What did he say? Maybe I'll do an exhaustive in depth personal analysis on his inaugural address. Or I could just say I am in about 90% agreement with Ed Morrissey. At least the inauguration pissed off some Obamabots. Not to mention dropping the Dow 5.3%, way to go Mr. President!

Staying Classy

Democrats and MSNBC shows everyone how to win with class.

Caroline Update: She is back in!

Obama start reversing Bush policies. Gitmo is to be closed. I just wonder how long it will take? What is he going to do with all the prisoners?

Caroline Update: She is out again. For real this time.

I'm cautiously optimistic right now. I can't say I wish Obama the best. I am still very suspicious about his motives and what he is going to do. Time will only tell. I "hope" that he does listen to both sides of an issue and chooses the most pragmatic course of action. If he does that he will piss a lot of the Left off, which is sort of bonus for me anyway.

What do to with Gitmo?

Today Obama becomes POTUS. No more fake seals. No more Office of President Elect, still trying to find the in the US Constitution. If you know where it is in there please let me know.

We will now see if Obama will keep a promise: To close Gitmo.
"That's a challenge," Obama said on ABC's "This Week." "I think it's going to
take some time and our legal teams are working in consultation with our national
security apparatus as we speak to help design exactly what we need to do.
"But I don't want to be ambiguous about this," he said. "We are going to
close Guantanamo and we are going to make sure that the procedures we set up are
ones that abide by our constitution."

What do with them is the big question. Do you want them in your city? Obama has a huge problem. Throughout the campaign, Obama blasted Bush over Gitmo, FISA, and torture.
Obama sided with Bush on FISA, much to the chagrin of the liberal base. Remember Olbermann's hysterical rant against Bush and warrent-less wiretaps? Do you remember his rant when Obama voted for warrant-less wiretaps?
Now Obama can put his money where his rhetoric is. What will he do?
I think Obama will close Gitmo. He will issue an Exec Order to close Gitmo with a timetable. Remember Obama really likes timetables. I say he will mandate Gitmo to be closed in 4 years, with the possibility to extend another 4 depending on circumstances. (how his reelection looks like)
As what to do with the prisoners, you just need to look at Obama new CIA cheif, Leon Panetta.

Leon served as White House Chief of Staff under Clinton. President Clinton had the same problem as Obama will have, what do to with prisoners hell bent on the destruction of the US. Prisoners that could get out of jail on technicalities in the system. What did Clinton do? What did Panetta help Clinton do? Send them to other countries, countries with history of torture. Let those countries get the information the US wants. Eli Lake at the Washington Times has a great piece on "extraordinary rendition."
Leon Panetta, served as White House chief of staff during the time the Clinton
administration accelerated a practice of kidnapping terrorist suspects and
sending them to countries with records of torturing prisoners, human rights
organizations and former U.S. officials say.

Now that's change I can believe in. At least now, when a liberal friend or colleague says anything about Bush and torture, you can have a quick come back. Obama is just another Bush. On everything Foreign Policy, Obama has sided with Bush over his Liberal Base.
Obama will close Gitmo to appease his base, but at the same time, he knows that he can't let these prisoners into the civil court system, where they will be free on technicalities.

What Stimulus?

$825 billion stiumuls bill designed to create 4 millions jobs, thats $206, 250 in taxpayer dollars per job. How do I get one of those jobs?

The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009

So lets see what they want to stimulate our "dire" "horrific" "Catastrophic" blah blah blah.... Economy with

The program lacks a clear purpose. The program lacks short-term and long-term
outcome measures. Funds are not targeted to places with the greatest needs.
  • Capital and Debt Service Grants to the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Money goes to Amtrack).... Cost $800,000,000
Amtrak's purpose is ambiguous, and the program has been ineffectively managed
due to this lack of clarity. Amtrak performs poorly both financially and

Youthbuild lacks long-term performance outcome measures, and has not
developed ambitious targets for its annual performance measures. Youthbuild has
insufficient program management processes.

  • Smithsonian Institute for "Facilities Capital’’.... Cost $150,000,000
  • $245,000,000 for FARM SERVICE AGENCY SALARIES AND EXPENSES. Where do I get one of those jobs?
  • $22,129,000,000 for the "rural housing insurance fund." How is that creating a job?
  • $2,825,000,000 to bring Broadband internet access to rural areas. That's a whole lot of bang for your buck. I expect at least 200,000 jobs to be created just form this that will last all of 6 months.
  • $150,000,000 for food stamps for Puerto Rico (Pop. 3,994,259 ) and American Samoa (Pop. 68,200). Now I find it very hard to believe that everyone in those places needs foodstamps.
  • $350,000,000 for ‘‘Salaries and Expenses’’ to "to identify and track the availability and adoption of broadband services within each State, and to develop and maintain a nationwide broadband inventory map" Again how do I get one of those jobs? I'm sure the Directors starting salary will be at least $150,000 alone.
  • $2,825,000,000 more for Broadband Grant money. I wonder which House Democrat has a buddy that will make lots of money that he will donate to his friends PAC or campaign fund?
  • $100,000,000 to the NIST. I'm sure they are jealous, the Smithsonian got 150 million for paint.

There is plenty more where that came from...$850 Billion in 334 pages. Go read it for yourself.

God Save the Queen.

In two days, the coronation of the Obama-nation will commence. Even though I live in a state that voted the most for McCain, I still see Obama shirts and hats and what nots all around. I can't imagine the let down most of these people will face, when they realize Obama is just a man and a very flawed one at that. Putting all their hopes and dreams on the shoulders of rookie, is very dangerous and can lead to very dangerous consequences.
Apperantly Obama thinks we need a new Declaration of Independance.
What is required is a new declaration of independence, not just in our nation, but in our own lives...

I guess the first one wasn't good enough. I'd have to agree to a certain extent. We are treating Obama like royalty.
Barack Obama has a four-year rental on the White House. We would do well to remember he doesn't possess the freehold.

Is this the new Camelot? I hope not, the first one wasn't that good to begin with. Of course most people probably couldn't tell you about the Bay of Pigs or the Cuban Missle Crisis or that damn missle gap.
Our future generation isn't required to learn history anymore. So we are doomed to repeating mistakes that we made before and will make again.

Oh a brighter least those Damn Eagles are not going to the Superbowl.

More Roads to Nowhere.

One of my favorite blogs right now is Liberal Rapture. J-SOM has a great post today on Obamanomics. Specifically on the new found love to print more and more money to solve today's problems.

There are two articles that are well worth reading, one by Ron Paul and one by Paul Krugman.

I have more than a few reservations on Krugman's Keys to Success.

Like any good epic poem, Krugman invokes his muse. In this case Krugman picks, Melpomene.
How bad is the economic outlook? Worse than almost anyone imagined.

The Democrats have been saying this for over the past year. Even before the GDP went into the red, they were crying out for a Recession. Then when the GDP did go into the red, they were calling it the new Depression. How else could they take advantage of a crisis of their own making? Or is it still too much of a "Distraction" to talk about the Democratic culpability in the mess cause by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mack, Countrywide and Leihman Bros? Who were the leading recipients of campaign cash from those companies? But I digress, that is for a different post.
Back to Mr. Krugman, who likes to play up to his Nobel Prize cult followers, by using job data, but like a true intellectual dishonest political hack, fails to mention any of the causes to the job loss data. He gives Bush some props,
Even before the crisis, job growth under Bush averaged only 800,000 a year...
Yet yet fails to give the Democrats their props too.
and over the past year, instead of gaining a million-plus jobs, we lost 2 million. Today we're continuing to lose jobs at the rate of a half million a month.
Who was in control of Congress over the last TWO YEARS? Yet later on Krugman acknowledges that you can never have 100% percent employment.
"Full employment" means a jobless rate of five percent
Wait aren't we at 7.2%? Doesn't sounds like the 15% during the Great Depression does it? Not far off from what Krugman even acknowledges to be full employment.

Krugman article goes on to say that no other President did anything at all to help or hurt the economy its all the Feds doing. I can reasonably see some validity in this argument to a point. I'm not an economist or pretend to be, but I find it very hard to believe that any President has and can do nothing to help or hurt the Economy, because it's all run the the shadowy Fed Reserve system. Krugman uses this argument mainly because he is at heart a Liberal. Nothing wrong with that at all. Yet he tries to hide his Liberalism behind his Princeton Professorship. He like any other political hack cherry picks the data that best suits his preconceived notions. Is it any wonder economics is not considered a true science?
The Bailout was and is a failure. Too many banks and companies are allowed to survive that would be better off six feet under. Business week has an excellent article about Zombie Companies. That I urge everyone to read.
I do have to agree with Krugman that Bush didn't attach enough strings to the TARP funds, but wasn't it the Democrats that passed the Bailout bill? I seem to remember something about the Democrats being in con troll of the House and Senate during the current economic troubles.
Krugman advises Obama to nationalize the financial system. Make no mistake this leads to Socialism and is the first step to a Communistic Sate. Krugman at least has the calls to call it what it is.
And the truth is that you will, in a way, be engaging in temporary nationalization. But that's OK: In the long run we don't want the government running financial institutions, but for now we need to do whatever it takes to get credit flowing again.
All in the name of public good, right Comrade? All I have to ask is name a Government that has ever willingly given up nationalization without fear of revolt? Oh but there is more!
Build more Roads and bridges, upgrade the internet and electrical grids and give more money to the States and Local governments. They all sounds good and in fact I agree with some of them. Roads and Bridges need to be improved, but its not the governments job to upgrade electrical and internet systems, let the companies that run, operate and make money from them pay the bill. I don't want my tax dollars being spent to give internet access to a hermit living 200 miles from civilization in Montana. Let them move closer to a city or for heaven sakes, make them get a aircard from AT&T, those things work practically everywhere now, no matter how slow they are.
Building roads and bridges sound good until you think about all the waste that is inherent in the system. How long will it take and how much money will be wasted planning these massive public works projects? How many will actually do any good for the public? We don't need any more bridges to nowhere.
I'm not even going to go into Health Care, I don't see how Krugman can even seem to think Health Care is a cause for the current economic downturn. It just shows his political hackness, in my opinion. Health Care is a separate issue and taking it into the Stimulus Bill is intellectually dishonest. No wonder why Krugman wants it in there.

Make no mistake I don't like Krugman. I'm a Wall Street Journal Reader after all. I think he is a political hack and a charlatan. He is on par with Al Gore, in my opinion. They both received a Nobel Prize for no apparent reason, except of course if cherry picking data is reason enough alone. Like Gore, Krugman is trying to leverage his Nobel into his politics. Gore's global warming farce is finally being discredited and soon Krugman's new New Deal will be discredited soon before his ideas cause a new Great Depression.

This is a test post.
