Maxine Waters and her ilk are smarter than those who vote for them. That’s damned scary.

Rush is right, you want to always keep a few liberals around to remind us what they are...

IMHO she makes Ted Kennedy look like a Rocket Scientist...

IMO, Sarah Palin gave a good blueprint for creating jobs that would garner more tax payers than welfare recipients. I’m sure Maxine’s little pea brain can’t process what she said, though.

Liberals do not know where JOBS come from..

They do not know government jobs cost money they don't make money..

A gov't job subtracts revenue, assets, and possibilities from the economy it does not add to the economy..

A trillion dollars would be about $60,000 for every unemployed person. Might as well cut out the middle man and write a check to the individual.

Hey Maxine, America is a capitalist, free-enterprise, free markets country. If you want big government socialism, then move to Cuba.

My how Maxine has grown, after the Rodney King riots she tried to attach a rider to a bill giving African American males in her district 500 bucks each. Now, shes ready to hop on board with helicopter Ben and just throw billions to the masses.

It is very sad that so many of our citizens are not qualified to have the right to vote.

“Come on Maxine. It should be 100 gazillion dollars.”

LOL! That captures it. She reminds me of the quote from Reagan about how liberals are like babies, a ravenous appetite on one end and no sense of responsibility on the other.

How much would that be if you just gave it to blacks?

It’s good she’s managing to keep herself in the news. Best advertising for insanity there is. The public needs to know what they think.

All Democratic Black and Hispanic Congressmembers have ridden on the backs of their plantation electorates to enrich themselves. Just ask Maxine Waters and her husband or Charles Rangel. Los Angeles’ Mayor Villaraigosa. Or former CA Speaker, now Congressmember Karen Bass or former CA Speaker Willie Brown.

Outside of Congress Maxine Waters and her ilk do not have the skills to clean a toilet.

1 trillion divided by 9 million is $111,000 per person. If you count those who are sitting on the sidelines, hiding in college, or working under the table, pretty easy to balloon the number of unemployed to 27 million. That’s $37,000 per person for that trillion dollars. (It still boggles the mind just how huge of a number we’re talking about...)

So if all 27 million suddenly became direct employees of the federal government at a paltry $30,000, and $7,000 goes in to providing benefits because that’s how feds think, you’d have them all employed, and the fed should come away with about 40 billion in direct taxes, and roughly 80 billion in indirect taxes, with roughly the same number going to the states in their taxes.

Of course, the feds would spend another trillion outfitting these people with vehicles, offices, computers, etc, and probably half a trillion more to create management teams to run those 27,000,000 people...

I got a much better idea. How about cutting taxes by a trillion dollars and let the economy rebuild itself? How about putting up for open auction all those Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac properties so that people have a shot at buying their own homes and the housing market can settle back down? How about getting government out of the way, rather than racking up even more debt?

They should have Maxine give speeches, lots of speeches and gather her hot air into some storage facility to save for winter. Then, on Dec 1 release it anywhere in the northern hemisphere. That will eliminate the use for any other power for heat.

The money the public would save buying heat from every source would divert to demand for other products. People would have to go to work to saticfy that demand.

Who knew Maxine Waters was a supply sider...after a fashion.

Maxine wants to take over the oil companies and tax the banks out of business if they do not give her stuff.What Maxine really needs is a lobotomy but to do so would mean performing an anal probe first to find where to hook the other end of the cable. Anyone up for the job?

Fine....ALL applicants subject to drug testing, all contracts open to ALL non-union bidders, and, NO SET-ASIDES, and NO PREFERENTIAL HIRING ALLOWED, period.

Now; you think Maxine "I be of sound mind" Waters will bring THAT to the floor of the House for a vote?

Once we blow through the trillion, what happens to those jobs? If they’re not based on market demand, then they are not self-supporting.

Two examples of this failing are:

1. The Clinton program to give money to the states to put more cops on the street. Once the program ended, states had to lay off all those cops.

2. Porkulus. It went to states and was used to buffer state union employees, teachers, etc. from the layoffs which were occurring in the private sector. Now that money is gone, states are laying off employees right and left.

An delicious irony is when Obama staged a presser using a teacher whose job was saved by porkulus as a stage prop. A couple of years later when the money was gone, that same teacher was laid off.

Give Mad Maxine a 100 Trillion Dollar Zimbabwe currency note (worth about $5 US). That ought to keep her quiet for a while.
