“The stimulus passed in February of 2009 didn’t go to shovel ready projects. Instead it propped up state and local governments that were broke. What didn’t go to governments was spent on projects without any regard for their return on investment. For example, green light bulb research might be a neat concept, but the short term return on investment is 0. You might even believe that green light bulb research will have positive economic effects in the future-but stimulus is designed to help us today so it’s still a stupid way to spend government dollars. Even if you think stimulus can work, it doesn’t because of politics. This phenomena occurs no matter which party is in charge.”
Mr. Carter goes on to present a simple, proven method used by both democrat & Republican Presidents to stimulate economic growth and job creation. A method that won’t be used as long as our Dear Leader is in the White House and Harry Reid and the democrats control the Senate. It goes against their so-called “progressive” policies, which they will blindly cling to regardless of how much damage they cause the country.

“At the height of the Great Depression, [President] Roosevelt avoided such a rating. So did other presidents during troubled times including Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, and G.W. Bush. Yet, the news media are more interested with protecting a failed president than with informing American citizens about a troubling economic situation.”
The “money” quote:
“Blame the Tea Party? Geez, no wonder Kerry did so well in an election. If it wasn’t for the Tea Party, they would have passed the debt ceiling thumbs up, we would have been rated BBB.”
The DNC’s so called “spokesperson” Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is still on her long term vacation from reality.
The latest example is her claiming that “We’ve Really Begun To Turn The Economy Around.”
If she means that the democrats have turned the economy around by wedging it even further in the ditch he and the congressional democrats have wedged into with their Keynesian policies, then ya, she could be inhabiting the shared reality of rational adults, but I really don’t think that is the case.
Let’s review a couple of recent indicators of just how the American economy is doing.
There is also the decrease in demand for manufactured goods, the recent downgrades in the GDP for the past year, and rising inflation.
If you want to spot check this, drive around your local town and see how many empty store fronts and office buildings there are. Are there more or less than there were a year ago? Unless you live in Texas, the answer is probably more.
NPR has distilled the input they got for people’s top picks for SciFi & Fantasy down to 100 selections, and are asking people to pick their top ten. There is some utter dreck in the list, along with some of the true classics in the field.
Go vote, but if your choices don’t include Heinlein, Pournelle, Niven, or Farmer, just hang your head in shame.
