Daschle is the least of my worries. I'm worrried about the $900,000,000,000 porkpie spending bill Obama is trying to ram through congress.

We will be the losers. In the form of taxes fees and out of control inflation. Be scared, be very scared.  ;;) :yikes:

Sheesh, how many tax evaders is he going to nominate?

How long do you think Gregg will last as head of commerce? :rofl_2:
Is that a rat I smell?  He will be the perfect fall guy when the bailout doesn't turn the economy around.  Damn conservative! ;-()

No, he won't be a fall guy. That's too politically risky, and Obama has shown he's chicken sh@t during his first 10 days.

We progressives are just :sick: over that nomination. Trust me, I think Obama is playing better with conservatives right now than progressives. Conservatives at least believe they can do to Obama what they did to Clinton: undermine his presidency before its first 100 days. Progressives are absolutely bewildered by his appointees (and defending them).

Confusing from here as well.
Actually, to think that any one man is responsible for the ups and downs of the economy is a stretch.

I agree completely: it took a boat load of ideologues in high places to put us in the mess we are in today. But who is the "one man" you are referring to?

An intersting theory about why Obama is going so hard to court the Republicans in congress (because he doesn't really need them in the House, and only needs 1 or 2 in the Senate to do what ever he wants to do), is that he wants them to come over and vote for this bill to lighten the responsibility load.
As it is now, no republican in the House voted for this porkpie grab bag. If it succeeds Obama can rightly take full credit. But if... no.... when it fails to stimulate the economy, he stands alone in failure.

During the Dem primary, I was with Hillary and others who ridiculed Obama because of his belief that Rs will be willing to work with his Admin simply because :dunno:  And this was his claim before the bottom fell out of the economy. These token acts of consideration are huge, foolhearted consessions.

Does this mean you are behind this stimulous package? You want this to pass?

What puzzles me about any 'stimulus package' is the basic concept of taking money from the people who need it most(or more accurately, mortgaging their future), and giving it to folks in charge (with minimal guidelines) who are partially responsible for the current economic state in the first place.  All done in the name of helping the people you took the money from in the first place.  To me it appears to be the same gross debt incurring mentality that I think is partly responsible for the crisis.  As Herc might say, trend analysis indicates this is a plan to fail because the current indications are that it is failing.  Bailouts having been going on for years in one form or another, and the current stimulus package is the grandpappy of them all!

I say let the inefficient businesses fail, give the people keep more of their own cash for stimulus and build from their.  Focus on changing the prevailing attitude of 'buy now, pay later' (can you say Social Security!) and create a mindset of earn, save, build.

I actually have a plan to almost entirely erradicate Social Security.

* eat everything you want (stimulate food industry)
* drink heavy (stimulate alcohol industry)
* smoke heavy (stimulate tabacco industry)
* never go to your doctor (oh well, nothing's perfect)
* if you have to dip into SS, make sure you don't live more than 4 years past the day you retire

It's brilliant! It everyone wins! People will have an incentive to work longer, this way they'll look forward to dying. And, viola, SS is off the table.

Are you going to sign onto my program, monster? Who else wants to join monster and me? (Actually, I'm less than half serious.)

Or better yet, how about I just keep the money I've earned and invest it for myself?  Rather than giving my money to current seniors and then borrowing money from  future generations to pay me.  Can you say Ponzi Scheme? 

Babblogicl-  MT your too stupid to take care of yourself.  Give us your money and we'll take care of you.  Right.
Immoral, unethical, not practical.

Thanks for the offer Babbs, but I'm on the MT plan.  I think you know what that is. :rofl_2:
