    Steel industry hopes for big stimulus shot

    Business & Technology | Steel industry hopes for big stimulus shot | Seattle Times Newspaper

    Unlike the Banking and Finance, Auto, Newspaper and Retail Industries, the Steel Industry seems to be asking for orders for their products.
    This we can not only understand we can also applaud them.

    If only the US were able to purchase goods manufactured within the US, then the US would be immeasurably better off in it's ability to withstand a depression.

    So folks, you have the answer BUY AMERICAN where possible.

    Except that the steel industry pollutes Mother Gaia, thus it must be destroyed.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Next in line for the big welfare giveaway, funded by you and me:

    1) The tobacco industry - Claims that bad advertising is putting them out of business - "HELP US".

    2) Televangelists - Claim that exposes on their theft of money from ignorant parishioners is making them broke. - "HELP US".

    3) Supermarket chains - Claim that the economy is causing people to eat less, thus adverse affecting their bottom line - "HELP US".

    4) The homeless - Claim that revenues from windshield washing is down - "HELP US".

    5) The idle rich - Claim that it is not fair if they cannot continue to be idle while not contributing anything to the economy - "HELP US".

    6) McDonald's - Claim that Ronald is not accustomed to the lifestyle he now lives. People are just not buying as many overpriced Big Macs as before - "HELP US".

    7) Sex toy manufacturers - Claim that illegality of their product in some states is causing them to lose money - "HELP US".

    8) Counterfeiters - Claim that their fake money isn't worth what it used to be - "HELP US".

    9) The Federal Reserve - Claim that their fake money isn't worth what it used to be - "HELP US".

    10) Politicians - Claim that they are ethically bankrupt, which happens to be true, and need to vote themselves another raise. "GOD HELP US ALL".

    If elected President in the year 2012, I will make a solemn promise to each and every one of these groups.

    1) Go jump in a tobacco pile.

    2) Go jump in a pile of your own BS.

    3) Go jump in the dumpster outside your nearest store.

    4) Go jump in your wash water pail.

    5) Go jump in a vat of Don Perignon.

    6) Go jump in a vat of Big Mac sauce.

    7) Go jump in a hole filled with STD's.

    8) Go jump in a pile of worthless paper.

    9) See number 8.

    10) Go jump off a cliff - Oops, I see you already did that. Too bad you had to take the rest of us with you, assholes.

    You are obviously a raving lunatic to imagine that after a term of a Democratic President, that the American Electorate would elect another one.

    I haven`t read a single word of this article,and I wont. The answer to our gasoline woes(instant solution)is the 4 day work week. The solution to the steel industries woes is a 4 day work week IN CHINA.

    You have the gall to call me a raving lunatic after supporting the lunacy of the last 8 years the way you did? You are the raving lunatic here.
