Not Just No, But HELL NO!!!

Newsweak cover says
We Are All Socialists Now

Thank you, Jon Meacham and Evan Thomas, for telling me what I believe.

Oh, and by the way, FUCK OFF!

A quick political bio, so that you will understand why I feel the way I do

I grew up in a Democratic house. First JFK'S and then LBJ's photo's hung in out dinning room. For one more week after Jan. 20, 1969 the big Texan stared at me from the wall while I ate dinner.
My personal politics moved slowly leftward, spured on by my moderate parents and their insistance that I study what I believed in and why.
Even when they hated my world view, they gave me room to fasten my own rope, as long as I thought about what I believed and didn't just jump willy nilly after the trends of the day.
I moved more and more leftward until I reached a point where I hated nearly everything that America stood for, and lived in utter paranoia about "the coming dark days under Reagan."
My hate for all things American got so bad that I remember saying that Leon Klingoffer deserved a bullet to the forehead, because he was a BUSINESS MAN! He was part of the ruling elite. Those words began to haunt me (they stil do) until I began to seriously question why I believed what it was that I belived in.
My parents had told me to think everyting through, and I finally started to do that. It wasn't until the Clinton years (damn I was thick-headed!) that I realized how wrong I had been.
As I looked I came to belive, that this Great Nation was not and never should be a utopia based on "what can you do for me", but a nation of people who ask "what can I do for you, and how can we work together on this."
I'm sure my parents would not be mad at my being a Coservative Republican now (well as long as I still never say nice things about RMN), but I know that having once been a Socialist, I say once again to the Fuckheads at Newsweek.

Some Lowlights from Barry's opening screed

What it does not contain, however, is a single pet project, not a single earmark, and it has been stripped of the projects members of both parties found most objectionable.


Now despite all of this, the plan's not perfect. No plan is. I can't tell you for sure that everything in this plan will work exactly as we hope, but I can tell you with complete confidence that a failure to act will only deepen this crisis, as well as the pain felt by millions of Americans.

My administration inherited a deficit of over $1 trillion,
(So whats 8 Trillion more down the road?) but because we also inherited the most profound economic emergency since the Great Depression, doing little or nothing at all will result in ever -- (even The NYT's transcript can't make this duffous sound smart) even greater deficits, even greater job loss, even greater loss of income and even greater loss of confidence.

Those are deficits that could turn a crisis into a catastrophe, and I refuse to let that happen. As long as I hold this office, I will do whatever it takes to put this economy back on track and put this country back to work.

So my question is this, how is 7.6% unemployment the same as 33%?
Yes things are really bad, a crapload of my friends are un or under employed. But running around like a chicken in a childrens story will not help.

Also as this chart show the unempoyment figures for the early 80's were worse than what we are facing now!

Yes we need to do something but direct tax cuts and smaller spending plans are far better than this giant Federal Black Hole of Debt that three generations hence will still be paying for.

But it looks like those wonderfull RINO's from Maine and Arty Specktor, are going to help out the MOST CLUELESS MAN TO EVER SIT IN THE WHITE HOUSE, and that includes Jimmah Carter.
