Hey, I want a free abortion! If it's free, it's for me...although as a pro-life male, not sure I could use one.

Sheesh, this is worse than oprah give-away car programs.

Ah yes, the Alinsky trained community thuganizer. ACORNs and SEIU, and ... well, freepers get the gist. And the fifth column enemy within, the media, continue to cover the bastard’s commie/fascist tracks ad no one appears knowledgeable enough to build a working guillotine for the heads of the media networks who have proven themselves enemies of we the people.

The b*stid is cruising around Europe right now but feels that too long - maybe a few hours - has gone by without forcing us to see his ugly mug on TV.

I’m just hoping he’ll say nothing, which is what he usually does. One of these days, he’s going to say something, though, and I don’t think any of us here are going to like it.

Stimuloss $ to be spent on vaccinations? Then, later, the diverting of those funds will be the excuse as to why the stimuloss failed to re-ignite the economy?

I have a wonderful thing to announce to my fellow Americans. The recession is over and the recovery has begun. I have directed my employees in Congress to draft a new round of stimulant spending to the tune of $1 trillion. Sure we will lose a few million jobs over the next year as company after company goes out of business or declares bankruptcy but this government is out of recession. We can and will spend our way out of all economic difficulty that remains. So smile a little more while you are in line for your unemployment check or at the bread line, the recession is over. So sayeth the I.

According to Wiki, the ARRA included these provisions for "health care"...

* $86.6 billion for Medicaid
* $24.7 billion to provide a 65 percent subsidy of health care insurance premiums for the unemployed under the COBRA program
* $19 billion for health information technology
* $10 billion for health research and construction of National Institutes of Health facilities
* $1.3 billion for medical care for service members and their families (military)
* $1 billion for prevention and wellness
* $1 billion for the Veterans Health Administration
* $2 billion for Community Health Centers
* $1.1 billion to research the effectiveness of certain healthcare treatments
* $500 million to train healthcare personnel
* $500 million for healthcare services on Indian
reservations

IOW, it could be almost anything. What it certainly will end up being is an unbridled expansion of government, and skyrocketing added expense to the US taxpayer.

It’s a recession when your neighbor loses his job.
It’s a depression when you lose yours.
It’s a recovery when Obama loses his.

"Switch to the Amero?"

I'm wondering about that (or similar) as well.

Last day of the fiscal year?

Unexpected currency surprise?
