    Merel had it all figured out years ago. Rainbow stew
    "There's a big, brown cloud in the city,
    And the countryside's a sin.
    An' the price of life is too high to give up,
    Gotta come down again.
    When the world wide war is over and done,
    And the dream of peace comes true.
    We'll all be drinkin' free bubble-up,
    Eatin' that rainbow stew.
    When they find out how to burn water,
    And the gasoline car is gone.
    When an airplane flies without any fuel,
    And the sunlight heats our home.
    One of these days when the air clears up,
    And the sun comes shinin' through.
    We'll all be drinkin' free bubble-up,
    An' eatin' that rainbow stew.

    Eatin' rainbow stew in a silver spoon,
    Underneath that sky of blue.
    All be drinkin' free bubble-up,
    An' eatin' that rainbow stew.

    You don't have to get high to get happy,
    Just think about what's in store.
    When people start doin' what they oughta be doin',
    Then they won't be booin' no more.
    When a President goes through the White House door,
    An' does what he says he'll do.
    We'll all be drinkin' free bubble-up,
    Eatin' that rainbow stew.

    Eatin' rainbow stew in a silver spoon,
    Underneath that sky of blue.
    We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-up,
    Eatin' some rainbow stew.

    Eatin' rainbow stew in a silver spoon,
    Underneath that sky of blue.
    All be drinkin' that free bubble-up,
    Eatin' rainbow stew.

    Fairly amazing how quick the the far right flipped from Obama is just making things worse, to its none of his doing that's causing things to get better.

    One thing is for sure, its getting harder and harder make the case that Obama is making things worse!

    Thank you Mr. President. SOME of us are actually paying attention out here. Looking forward to your next term.
    The comments sections are usually great places to find panaceas to the partisanship of the blog post:

    Awesome! Too bad volume is anemic, durable goods are down -4% (very bad), unemployment is actually 15% (see CBO report) and we have the lowest labor participation rate since 1980.... Throw 16 trillion at just about anything and it will go up momentarily....

    too bad the stock market is not the economy...
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    its funny watching people who constantly whine about wall street, the rich and those with investment income not being taxed enough crowing proudly about this news when they think it polishes up their turd of a president's re-election chances

    Personally, I just do it to show that if the president should take all the blame for everything from spoiled milk to head lice, simply because he''s president, he should also get to take the credit for good things.

    Honestly, I don't think he's due that much applause. I just love calling out the hypocrite president hater's I suppose.

    Forum posting is nothing more than entertainment to me.

    Personally, the stock market goes up, it goes down and up. I don't give much credit or blame to the Office of the President for the stock market. Don't care who is in the Office.

    What an angry little post you have.

    And, it seems you missed my first post in this thread:

    "Good news indeed! My business also more than doubled in income last year. It seems we have an upward trend going here!!!

    Bill Maher said his donation of a million dollars to the Obama super pac was actually kind of selfish on his part, because he knew that if the GOP candidates get elected and we go back to the same deregulation, supply side economics of the past, he would lose much more than a million.
    Thank you President Obama!
