Starting year 4 of the the “recovery is started but fragile”, “inflation is at near zero”, and in spite of that, we need another bigger and better stimulus. Yes, heard it three times before, but it still smells like the Bill Maher that you scrape off the bottom of your boots!

Recovery? Gas prices haven’t even started to rise yet for the summer.

All Israel needs to do now is sit tight until October, t hen threaten Iran, keep prices up and force Obama to decide between protecting the Jewish vote or protecting his Muslim buddies.
