    I have just as many 'news articles' and 'evidence' to back it up as you do. Who knows for sure what their real intentions were? It is completely possible it was a mix up but it is also completely possible they got caught doing something naughty and thanks to some quick thinking and string pulling, including a nice little article, no further action was taken.


    It could go either way is all I'm saying.

    Actually, the stimulus is doing plenty. It is stealing lots of money from working men and women, and giving the money to corporate welfare loafers who ran their companies into the ground, and then wanted a handout so they don't have to work for a living.

    Are you against the infrastructure (regardless of its size), unemployment extensions, and state funding aspects of the total package? If so, i am curious as to why.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    You have to wonder: would it have been better if Pulse, Pluss, Cirrus, Star etc... were unable to operate? IMHO hell no, it would have turned into utter chaos.

    I am against all that. Why? Because the government can't create wealth.

    Hell, the unemployment rate is clost to 17% and they're barely reporting double digits. They'll have no problem pretending unemployment is at 6.0% in 2012, especially with their willing accomplices in the mainstream propaganda organs.

    Hmmm....

    ....the unemployment rate BS (Before Stimulus) was 8% or so, the unemployment rate AS (After Stimulus) is 10.2%.

    And your Messiah is suggesting MORE stimulus.....mmmm....why? He shooting for 25% to push His Messiah-Care scam?
