Be careful if you claim “Obama saved the auto-industry”. First off, Obama gave his select auto companies a fantastic amount of cash. Too much cash, so much so that only a fraction of what they were given actually resulted in the creation of value.
Twenty one miles across, and that is just one mine.
Thom, thanks for letting me give a few of my 12 Reason the GOP Should Run Old Man Potter on your show today.
To see all dozen, see the video-link at my HuffPo archive of Doug's Dozen.
And remember, every time you click Funny, a writer gets his wins!
I have thought of a good way to stimulate the United States economy, while increasing the usefulness of the tax dollar. I am not sure if Thom has ever discussed this, but i know he supports American manufacturing, but my idea is this, every single penny, dime, dollar, that the United States Government spends on supplies, equipments, resources, must be 100% manufactured in the United States. That's local, state, and federal government, schools, libraries, government supported organizations, all of them! I also do not mean just assembled here.
I get a chuckle at times when Thom uses the phrase " Drinking the Koolaid" to describe the ideological dysfunction of elected represenatives.
I am not posting to insinuate Thom uses the comment incorrectly either in this regard.
What I offer for consideration is that the phrase is a " get off the hook" coupon for those actually engaged in the perversion of protocols that protect our collective interest in the face of growing evidence that just such a program is being implemented in every sector of governance captured by those forces.
In today's segment about disparity or inequality, the question raised by your guest was how do you address this disparity?
Disparity is a tool, an economic tool, used to discriminate against ones self, in order to realize political gain. I'll try not to be long-winded.
The GOP is passing all these bills as though they are not worried about the next election. Could it be that they know something we don't? I think they know the outcome already. Many of our votes will not be counted.
Why does this site need to be so anal about signing in? It seems to bust my balls over this password shit every time I let a day or two go by. Why? And it never accepts my password so I have to fill out that captcha bullshit then link in through the email. If I were a hacker I might already have broken into an email before worrying about a blog ;-).
