I fear change, it gives me pains in my chest.

Change huh? This guy is turning out to be an even bigger hypocrite than I possibly imagined, or not. No lobbyists in your administration you say, yet two of your nominees (so far) are former lobbyists. Ethics standards above reproach, yet 2 of your nominees (so far) have tax issues, including the new head of the IRS. I know that if I went from 2005-07 without filing and owed more than $100K the nice guys at the IRS would be banging down my door. Not to mention the appointment of Hillary to any position alone violates any ethical standards. I guess the choice of Joe "I plagerized what" Biden for veep wasn't a hint of what the future held.
 
Now we are going to have a $1.12 trillion, after interest, stimulus package rammed down our throats that is nothing more than a pork-filled spending bill that is not going to stimulate a thing except the continued failure of the US Dollar. Where is the money coming from and how many jobs is it going to create? There are no provisions in it for alleviation of corporate taxation. That is what will create jobs and stimulate the economy. Not funding for studies about STD's. That is well intentioned but it does not belong in a stimulus bill.
 
But on the bright side we have intillectual giants like Ashton Kutcher, P. Diddy or whatever his name is this week, Demi Moore, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie,  and all of the rest of the Hollywood crowd promising their undying love, support and allegiance to our country. Hope, Change, Transparency, Ethics, Trust. They are all just words unless you actually do something to back them up, and I have yet to see anything that even makes me remotely believe it is going to happen. If they would all just make their next movie or 2 for free that would help stimulate the economy. But there is no way in hades that is going to happen. As big a hypocrite as BHO is these guys are even worse.
 
And I am suppose to believe that releasing almost 300 terrorists and Al Qaida operatives is going to make us safer. I just cannot get my head around that one. I personally think it makes us look like a bunch of pansies. Heck let's just bring them into the country and put them on Social Security. Give them a free education that way they can major in chemistry or biology and really do it up right.
 
Free healthcare, you want it? Well guess what it is already here in a sense. If you live in proximity to a non-profit health care institution then you are going to get your bill written off, or a large som taken care of through charity. When you come to our hospital we cannot even ask you about your ability to pay or insurance until after treatment. Then all options are given to you. We write off more than $20 million each year in unpaid services.
 
The only true change we are going to see is the hilt of the knife sticking out of our chest rather that our back.

It is great to see other folks on here boiling their blood at the outright, bold-faced lies Prez Obama has told and continues to flaunt in the faces of us all.  The media is turning on the annointed one, you can feel it.  When they smell blood, they will pounce.  And then what? Disaster none of us can afford.

The New New Deal programs being put forth by these SOCIALISTS is criminal.  Any historian knows that Roosevelt's New Deal actually lengthed the Great Depression by about 7 years!  New Deal actually allowed for price fixing, anti-trust violations, collusion with unions, and wage rates fixed above the prevailing market rate.  As a result the economy did not have a sustained period of rapid, vigorous growth until after WWII.

It is history folks.  And those who don't know their history are destined to repeat it.

Say NO to the Porkulus Package!!

Oh yes being from Washington (the evergreen one) also, you know that the Governor of King County aka Gregoire is licking her chops at that possibility.

The worst part of the "stimulus" bill IMO is the 79 Billion to the states to bailout them out of their debts.  So we are just shifting debt from the states to the feds.  How again does this encourage states to handle their own financial matters?  I also think that if the GOP tried to pass a $1 trillion+ tax cut, the liberals would be howling about "fiscal irresponsibility."  I haven't much to that effect this time.  The bright side is that at least the House Republicans showed some backbone and voted no on this.
