The "stimulus" package is loaded with useless crap which won't help the economy - and people know it.
Much of it won't even be spent until 2010!
But even worse stuff is gonna come out about this porkapalooza; Ben Stein:
If the economy starts to recover before 2010 - which in all likelihood will happen - then Obama CANNOT take or get credit for the recovery.
I love this. The new kind of politics of hope. Eight hours of debate in the HR to pass a bill spending $820 billion, or roughly $102 billion per hour of debate.
Only ten per cent of the "stimulus" to be spent on 2009.
Close to half goes to entities that sponsor or employ or both members of the Service Employees International Union, federal, state, and municipal employee unions, or other Democrat-controlled unions.
This bill is sent to Congress after Obama has been in office for seven days.
It is 680 pages long.
According to my calculations, not one member of Congress read the entire bill before this vote.
Obviously, it would have been impossible, given his schedule, for President Obama to have read the entire bill.
For the amount spent we could have given every unemployed person in the United States roughly $75,000.
We could give every person who had lost a job and is now passing through long-term unemployment of six months or longer roughly $300,000.
And as the crony payoffs embodied in the bill become more widely known - as they inevitably will be, it will expose Obama for what he truly is: A CORRUPT CREATURE OF THE MACHINE.
The GOP will reap HUGE rewards for having NOT voted for the porkapalooza, and will in all likelihood retake the House and Senate on 2010.
All because of Obama.
The only thing which can save Obama is if he VETOES the stimulus package and says he's doing so because there's too much pork in it.
The odds of that are less than the odds Obama will covert to Judaism.
UPDATE: Lowry agrees:
There's usually a reaction to every action in American politics, and while the Democrats and Obama have basically a free hand to expand government in the current environment, you can already feel the backlash building.UPDATE #2: MORE CRITICISM OF THE BILL HERE.
I heard this morning that the health care expansion for children is going to be paid by higher taxes on cigarettes.
I'm all for taking care of children [though from community-grass roots up not top/to down,distribution, which is just gov control], but
isn't that a bit silly? After all, the very liberal left that supports health care expansion [gov controlled] are also very anti-smoking,
if barely any one smokes, where does this tax come from?????
How do you tax something that is being made Illegal?
On another note, are you all aware of the clever yet sinister CPSIA law that Congress passed, that goes into effect Feb 10?
All items made or that Appeal to children, have to be tested for lead/phthalates, which means each piece to an item, so in laymen's terms, if Grandma knits a purse to sell at a Church sale, she must pay, no kidding, 1,000 for testing for each item from zipper, to button, to threads, to each color of yarn used. So, that purse, costing maybe 25 to make and sells for 30, will now cost her 25 times $approx 700 to 100 to test each component which will force her to sell it for 10,000.
Pelosi and other special interest groups are determined that there will be no exception to the small businesses/homemade, this also applies to books,
on Feb 9, all books will be burned or taken off shelves, libraries are either removing children's books or banning children, etc [Taliban censorship via Congress with a pen],
this law, said to protect children, the more you dig, the more you realize this is an attempt to make all private/small businesses AND parental choice in what to consume,
Russification 101, that is exactly what it is.
Then, Mattel, large manufacturer where this lead scare became big news [toys], sold a doll [import from China/friend of janjaweed-Sudan no less] that says, Islam is the Light.
Toys with da'wa, and now, thanks to Congress, as of Feb 10, consumers will be left with little to no choices but to buy from stores that sell,
these imports. [Bush signed the bill btw] As of Feb 10 [though they extended for review on some things, mostly for big business, until August], if you get caught selling any child item or any thing that they -big brother kgb-could construe as 'appealing to a child, and of course they left that wide open for interpretation',
is punishable by law, a 100,000.00 fine AND prison time.
Most are not aware of this law and the media is barely covering it. Only the small home made crafters/artesans know mostly, are fighting it,
but even then, most do not see the connection to Chinese/Imports with Da'Wa [and recent story I read on Jihad Watch about now a video with messages to convert to Islam and those toys, due to computers, have been exempted from the CPSIA law], the mass Stalin type five year plans being pushed through behind closed doors,
and right under our noses. see http://blog.buyhandmade.org/ on the CPSIA law.
stating it here because so many are simply not aware of it.
btw, here is the website/campaign to fight the Toys/imports that are indoctrinating children through messages to embrace Islam,
I received note of this from women's group that is fighting Sharia law in the west, its a private group of women, many of whom have once lived under Sharia who are very watchful and VERY concerned and who inform and well, warn western women.
so, CPSIA law dictating gov control/making homemade extinct,
yet, there are loopholes for the large retailers/suppliers [suppliers are only being asked I believe to supply certificates] who can continue selling toys,
like the one sold by Mattel that say Islam is the Light. With Pelosi, pro-dhimmitude queen Jezebel,
is fierce in her statements of absolutely no exemptions for homemade/small business/working women [who dare work out of the home and continue putting importance on being a Mother], etc...
I don't think so...
