DrD'isInfotainment: winterwhile Quote 2008-12-14 09:18:34 AMDem-o-rats don't care, its all about repaying Chairman Obama's election to Unions and supporters.Throw the money away, same resultChange you can believe inOK ! WINTERWHILE Has Just Gone FULL RETAD
Obdicut: It's more like taking fuel out of the tank and putting it into the carburetor-- in theory.
Random Reality Check: It might make good sense to wait until Obama's programs are actually announced and implemented
Lusiphur: super-asshole mode: activate
eddyatwork: I'd rather have regular people getting the money than rich farks who promptly gave themselves bonuses for getting a trillion dollar bailout.
Phil Herup: I like clicking on your profile. It makes me laugh.
ExperianScaresCthulhu: eddyatwork: I'd rather have regular people getting the money than rich farks who promptly gave themselves bonuses for getting a trillion dollar bailout.This.
Phil Herup: Obviously. I hope he is smart. I think he will be.It is the rest of his party I'm worried about.
Lusiphur: I enjoy talking to you for much the same reason, except I can only take it for so long. Eventually it makes me want to gouge out my eyeballs to make the stupid go away.
deltabourne: We tried that already. The guy you hate did it, remember? It didn't workNow all of a sudden Obama wants to do it and its GENIUS!!!!!
Random Reality Check: My guess is that this will not be an issue for them, at least, initially.
CaptainFatass: Expect to hear about how investing in infrastrutcture is a bad idea because it doesn't yield profits in the days to come from the spittle-spouting retards.
Random Reality Check: However, if you were looking for an investment in infrastructure would make a put people to work and also stimulate the economy, well then, we wouldn't know - because the Bush Administration never attempted anything like that.
Phil Herup: Random Reality Check: My guess is that this will not be an issue for them, at least, initially.Yeah, I think Mr. Obama will keep the status quo for a while. I have more faith in him than Congress. Hopefully he will be successful and Pelosi can sit back and do what she is best at. Nothing.
Lusiphur: Random Reality Check: However, if you were looking for an investment in infrastructure would make a put people to work and also stimulate the economy, well then, we wouldn't know - because the Bush Administration never attempted anything like that.No, but it turned out awesome in the 40's and 50's. Especially the 50's when returing GI's with no job prospects and barely a high school education were put to work on the nations infrastructure. And all the research grants to Bell Labs and Xerox and the like ushered in this current era of American technologcal superiority that we're still enjoying today. If it wasn't massive influxes of federal capital into private research, we wouldn't have the internet, at least not in the advanced form we have it today. We would still be using 486's. Cars would still be made out of steel instead of safer, cheaper, and lighter aircraft grade aluminum. And we wouldn't have the Tempurpedic Sweedish Sleep System, with visco-elastic memory cells.We need another round of massive physical infrastructure upgrades and, almost more importantly, another round of "Race to the moon" type of pure technical grants.
CaptainFatass: They must think that the CEOs of the country are going to chip in to fix our bridges, streets, etc.
Random Reality Check: In fact, I don't think $1 trillion is enough.
Random Reality Check: I don't see Speaker Pelosi that way.

drfunke: so...I guess they really do have bigger packages.This just isn't going to work.
Sleeping Monkey: So to get us out of Bush's recession, Obama plans to spend 1/5 the amount of the money that Republicans borrowed to get us into the recession in the first place?Where were all the concerned fiscal conservatives over the last 8 years while we gave borrowed Chinese money away to war profiteers?
Il Douchey: Fear_and_Loathing: Take that trillion, give an equal portion to every citizen, and let's see what happens.It wouldn't matter. Gov't stimulus is like taking a bucket of water out of one side of the lake and pouring it into the other side of the lake in hopes of raising the level.
Axolotl: Looks like a bannination and deletion of all his posts, and all posts referring to his posts.For some reason we're not allowed to talk about it. Heck, I'll probably get zapped for saying this.
Cubansaltyballs: What did he say? It couldnt be any worse then some of the douchebags around here.
Axolotl: I'd assume he posted the pic on Drudge with a bunch of folks waving hands in front of an Obama poster with some highly objectionable comment.
iceberg theory: 1 trillion? seriously?the whole reason most people voted for obama is because the media told us he can turn stones into stacks of hundread dollar bills!i think weve been bamboozled! great googley moogley!
Notabunny: Reagan/Bush1 raised our debt from about 30% of GDP to well over 60% of GDP.Clinton lowered it.Now Bush2 has raised our debt to over 70% of GDP, and increased the debt owed to foreign nationals from 31% in 2000 to 46% today. (that's about $9k per individual American owed to some other country)A $1T investment in reversing 20 years of failed economics theory seems reasonable now, doesn't it.
the_vegetarian_cannibal: Sadly, the Obamabots will either ignore this or find some way to spin it into a positive so they can continue happily drinking their kool-aid.
moothemagiccow: the_vegetarian_cannibal: Sadly, the Obamabots will either ignore this or find some way to spin it into a positive so they can continue happily drinking their kool-aid.It was fine with you when his name was Bush and it was called a tax cut.
Skail: Fear_and_Loathing: Take that trillion, give an equal portion to every citizen, and let's see what happens. Most would spend it paying off debt, some on big screen TV or other crap.Others might send their kids to college. In the end, it makes more sense than funding those that got rich screwing with the system.In the end, cash would flow and debt would be reduced and life would get prosperous.Sounds good. Extreme inflation couldn't possibly happen with this plan!
MyRandomName: Clinton did not lower our debt... He merely had a surplus in his budget which was budgeted to run in the red. We still lost money to debt during the Clinton years, he just didn't spend the full proposed budget.
Argh2: Has anyone pointed out yet that we actually NEED infrastructure improvements? Fixing roads, bridges, etc. is not a bad thing. If we can get needed stimulus out of it, all the better.
