Next... the White House will blame this "unexpected" result on the Bush administration. "The problems we inherited have proven to be much more complex than expected, and will require an aggressive response," Robert Gibbs will say.

"The recovery plan I enacted last year resulted in saving millions of jobs that would otherwise have placed an intolerable burden on society," said Obama. "This success clearly points to the need for renewed action."

Our elected Representatives will then propose more of the same: More spending of wealth that has not been created, more burdensome taxes on the amorphous "rich" (which invariably means you and I), more intrusive and poisonous regulation of anything that could possibly help ameliorate the wreckage, more waste of your tax revenue on elusive "clean energy" concepts that seek to void the rules of thermodynamics, and more of the toxic economic environment that has resulted in a degree of widespread abject misery not seen since 1937.

Count on it.

Economy LOST 283,000 jobs and unemployment grew to 9.6% during "Recovery Summer"

Nope, sorry jazzguru, again you've been misled. Thanks to Obama's 2009 "stimulus plan" unemployment peaked at 8% and is now down to 7.5%: http://www.economy.com/mark-zandi/do...tment_Plan.pdf

Check page 4: if our beloved Representatives hadn't passed this legislation, hadn't spent 816 thousand million dollars that we don't have, unemployment would have risen to a shocking 9%! Thank God for our anointed President, his Congressional accomplices, and honorable mention to our sycophantic news media!

Thanks for the correction, john galt. I've seen the light.

According to TIME magazine, rising unemployment is a good thing.

The only thing I can't figure out is why Obama wants to give Bush all the credit and praise for the rising unemployment.

Well it depends on how you want to read the tea leaves. While there's no doubt that Time and CNN were whoring for Obama the minute after the latest employment news hit the streets, there is some (though sometimes spurious) logic in claiming that the unemployment rate going up indicates that people who previously stopped looking for work are now back at it. It also has the unmentioned effect of exposing the official unemployment statistic for the misleading lie that it is (it's not really counting all of the people who are unemployed.)

Can this be enumerated? I mean, if you're drawing an unemployment check, that's easily quantified, but how do you count the people who've been out of work for years, long after their last checks were cashed? What number does one call to report "yes, I'm still unemployed, thanks for asking"?

Probably not. I was just giving the typical rationale behind the "unemployment going up is good news" (other than the obvious..."Oh shit! More bad news for Obama! We need to spin this in some way to convince everyone that a shitty economy is a good one and that Obama saved us from another Great Depression.")

Obama Added More to National Debt in First 19 Months Than All Presidents from Washington Through Reagan Combined, Says Gov’t Data

Quote:
At the end of fiscal year 1989, which ended eight months after President Reagan left office, the total federal debt held by the public was $2.1907 trillion, according to the Congressional Budget Office. That means all U.S. presidents from George Washington through Ronald Reagan had accumulated only that much publicly held debt on behalf of American taxpayers. That is $335.3 billion less than the $2.5260 trillion that was added to the federal debt held by the public just between Jan. 20, 2009, when President Obama was inaugurated, and Aug. 20, 2010, the 19-month anniversary of Obama's inauguration.

Dammit, I was almost finished with my calculations and an appropriately brilliant summary of this very subject.

Obama, little Timmy Geitner, and the rest of his economic advisers have thus far demonstrated less knowledge about economics than a Wal-Mart cashier.

I hesitate to post in this thread again because the title specifically mentions BHO... whereas I think the problem lies with ALL politicians of late (last several decades) of BOTH parties... None of them seem to have read from the folks who actually FOUNDED this republic.
Here's just three quick quotes from three of the people that actually WROTE the constitution... a bit of insight into their motives and opinions... They would NOT approve of where our government is now, though they DID foresee it.



“When the people find that they can vote themselves money,
that will herald the end of the republic.”

- Benjamin Franklin



"Our democracy will cease to exist
when you take away from those who are willing to work
and give to those who would not."

- Thomas Jefferson



"The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people,
it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government
-- lest it come to dominate our lives and interests."

- Patrick Henry


ah... found the fourth one I was looking for (didn't want to post it till I was sure of the quote/author.)


"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent
the government from wasting the labors of the people
under the pretense of taking care of them."

- Thomas Jefferson

"We still find the greedy hand of government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry, and grasping at the spoil of the multitude. Invention is continually exercised to furnish new pretenses for revenue and taxation. It watches prosperity as its prey and permits none to escape without a tribute."

-- Thomas Paine


"...the opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch."

-- Thomas Jefferson


"...[T]he government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state governments, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government."

--James Madison


"Were we directed from Washington when to sow, and when to reap, we should soon want bread."

-- Thomas Jefferson, Autobiography, 1821

This seems as good a place as any...

Homebuyer tax credit: 950,000 must repay:

Quote:
According to a report from the Inspector General for Tax Administration, released to the public Thursday, about 950,000 of the nearly 1.8 million Americans who claimed the tax credit on their 2009 tax returns will have to return the money.

The confusion comes because homebuyers were eligible for two different credits, depending on when their homes were purchased.

Those who bought properties during 2008 were to deduct, dollar for dollar, up to 10% of the home's purchase price or $7,500, whichever was less. The catch: The money was a no-interest loan that had to be repaid within 15 years.

Not at all. And I agree that voting Republicans in isn't going to make the situation any better.

So we are in agreement: Obama and the Democrats are bad for this country. The Republicans are bad for this country.

What are we going to do about it?

Wow, way to turn down the wrong path. I don't think Obama and the Democrats are bad for this country. I think the Democrats are doing much more good than bad. They aren't flawless. They certainly have things they need to live up to that they haven't yet. They are infinitely better than the alternative.

No, you don't get your AHAH GOTCHA moment.

Obama and the Democrats are keeping in place or expanding upon just about every failed/wrong Bush/Republican policy.

Yet somehow they are doing more good than bad. Fascinating stuff.

It would be hilarious if it weren't so tragically true:

Obama Says Voters May Blame Him For Economy

("may?" )

Quote:
"Because I am president, and the Democrats have control of the House and Senate, it's understandable that people are saying, 'What have you done?"'

As in WHAT... HAVE... YOU... DONE

Yet it's those eevil obstructionist Rs who are blocking O at every turn:

Quote:
...And he blamed Republicans for holding back future progress by uniformly opposing other proposals on the table.

Exactly as promised by Rs right after the "big f*cking deal":

Quote:
"In my opinion, the institution of the Congress has been fundamentally harmed," said Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.), pointing to the process Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) used to craft the final health bill.

Obamacare passed Congress without one Republican vote. Every single R (and dozens of Ds) opposed it. Every one. Zero R support. There was nothing Republicans could have done to stop his agenda.

Yet, for the sake of the Presidency, Obamacare is here to stay.

Tell me: Since March 22, what miraculous power has been bestowed upon those evil obstructionists to stand in the way of whatever else O wants?

It's no wonder he's so quickly dismissed as a nutcase.

All that is fine and dandy (though in my opinion, as a first world nation, we DEFINITELY deserve cheaper medical care as EVERY OTHER FIRST-WORLD NATION ALREADY HAS, and "free market" won't EVER make that happen).

He also wants to get rid of every single safety net for the poor or unlucky, cut almost all sources of national revenue, which means we'll have to cut pretty much everything regarding national management, law enforcement, research, defense and maintenance and development of infrastructure. He wants to cancel all of the regulations that are supposed to protect us from things like mining disasters, oil spills and corporate mismanagement that affects the national economy.

Yes, I would say nutcase considering the above. For a non-nutcase that wants financial responsibility AS WELL as government protection of her people, look at Dennis Kucinich.

The free market has worked for elective and cosmetic surgery. Of course those are the areas where government price distortions haven't taken complete hold.

Perhaps he has the communist view of such things which appears to be, when everyone is poor, no one need a safety net.

I'd probably just look over Kucinich. There isn't much to see there and you should start reading about the sovereign debt crisis if you want to see how well all these programs are doing around the world. Everyone and everything can look good until the credit runs out.

You know you seem to constantly be comparing a Africa to several Northern European nations. You appear to have this desire to constantly berate nations that are majority black. Why are you so racist?

Also as for Africa, they've received and continue to request government assistance and monies of all manner from the U.S. and Europe. They aren't laisse faire. They are more like communist with really bad forms of enforcing and dispersing the spoils from the government offices.

Over a trillion dollars in aid has been given to Africa. Just like every other war on poverty, including the one in the United States, and those throughout Europe, the poor never go away. They only become entrenched, helpless and the results become worse than if nothing had been done.

Yes because expecting luxuries to be price conscious and the cost of government care to keep risig above all inflation and all other measures is the rational position.

I'm not sure who's laughing but that is quite a joke you are making there with your position.

You seem to be lashing out at others for noting you keep calling white societies good and pointing at black societies and citing them as examples of what is wrong.

Do you deny that the continent of Europe colonized and crapped all over Africa for centuries?

Do you deny that Europe's racism and the alms they continue to send so they can maintain their racist views are the cause of such problems today?

I do have the nerve to call you a racist when you are engaging in racism. Making up some bullshit accusations about some other place won't change that fact. Also if bans equals matters on which one should be quiet, then your actions here have gotten you banned multiple times. Perhaps you should follow your own reasoning and shut up all together.

You can continue to make up nonsense to console yourself about your multiple bans. I've never been banned for racism.

Amazing how you say you don't want to get into an argument and they restate your nonsense and your accusations. It's akin to saying you don't want a fight while punching someone in the face.

The reality is that Africa has not been some sort of petri dish whereby we have examples of unfettered capitalism. Africa is an example of Europeans wandering around and raping resources while using racism to justify their good intentions. They are merely "civilizing the savages."

Not much about that has changed as you can see. I'm sure from your high horse you see plenty of rationales while you, the supposedly superior must demand we bow down as the inferior. Look at that condescending tone and the requests within it.

I should just know my place right MJ. I just should just bow down to the superior intellect as should those darn Africans. We aren't pure enough blood for your ilk. We're just the savages that should shut up and settle down while you send us a check to pacify due to the fact that genetics has given us such a poor lot in life.

Hey MJ. You keep saying I get into trouble. Bring that trouble on from your mighty throne. I'd love to see it happen.
