Change we can't believe in

More evidence of "hope and change" comes to the forefront.

Via CNS News:

Termite research, walrus rehabilitation and pig manure are among the more than 8,570 of earmarks in the omnibus spending package currently before the Senate. Critics charge the bill is stuffed full of so many pork barrel projects -- $7.7 billion worth -- that President Barack Obama should veto it.

Perhaps the most controversial is a direct earmark for a Hispanic civil-rights group -- the National Council of La Raza -- worth $950,000. The group has been a lighting rod of controversy since it helped organize large protests in 2006 aimed at derailing efforts by conservative congressional Republicans to enforce U.S. immigration laws.


Money for La Raza, money for the corrupt ACORN, money for abortions, money for the radical jihadis at Hamas...

Obama has lurched so far to the left because that's what he is - a leftist. His background, reading sources, friends and associates have been, mostly, radical leftists. Obama wants to destroy this country so he can rebuild it. He wants to transform it into a socialist utopia.

The crap that they're trying to sneak past us is disgusting. It is not change, it is business as usual: Only worse.

But the slobbering media continues their boot-licking - this time it's Pepsi. They are shilling an ad in which they say "Obama will refresh our nation".

And the Drones keep drinking the Pepsi, and the Kool-Aid.

You are 100% on the mark with your commentary....... The amount of waste in this porky bill is astounding.... Earmarked to death, although he promised no earmarks. I fear there is going to be a revolt, i mean truly a revolt.

I am a life long Pepsi drinker. Well I am picking upcases of Coca-
Cola. Gawd, how crazy is it when your local soda company has drank the koolaid??

Great blog.

Obama is the typical Chicago politican. Promise anything to get elected, then go back on all the promises.

But of course all the blacks had to vote for him because he was black, and any guilty liberal white who didn't vote for him was racist. One thing all those voters had in common - they are utter morons. I hope they all lose their jobs. (Well, the few that work anyway.)

I do love this country but sometimes I have to laugh to keep from going crazy. I can't believe how dysfunctional our own government has become.

Why do these lazy greedy cops think they need a new contract? Perhaps they need a rework of their whole program, a yearly physical fitness test like the military? Adjust their medical roll program to say, 12 sick days a year. There's no reason a female cop should have up to a year off on having a baby. The Mexican taco girls have a baby and they go back to work the next day.

"He wants to transform it into a socialist utopia."

Rubbish.

Obama may be quite the liberal but no socialist is he. The money he has given to banks is an example of capitalistic socialism, but nothing near to Marx and company.

The rich take care of the rich. Until this republic gets away from that the working class will always be under foot.

Rue you’ve continued to take your eye off the ball on the slow-motion collapse of the US economy for months and frankly I’m puzzled. Didn’t we go over this back in September of last year when both Obama and McCain led a bipartisan consensus in Congress to lavash 700 billion under the TARP in future tax obligations to bailout the reckless Wall Street speculators who cratered the world economy? Rue have you been paying any attention at all? Both parties are the bought and paid for stooges of the financial sector that has gotten the lions share of our collective wealth (i.e our labor derived tax obligations) which has disappeared into a black hole from which it will never be retrieved.

Economist Michael Hudson puts the pieces together here in an essay that is a must-read for anyone who hopes to have some understanding of how thoroughly Wall Street and its loyal servants in the Federal Reserve, US Treasury, and the White House hope to fuck us.

Rue once more I remind you that the seeds for the destruction of the US economy began in ernest with the Reagan administration’s embrace of Milt Friedman’s monetarist, supply-side bullshit that encouraged the further destruction of the US labor movement via a relentless assault on real-wages and the systematic de-industrialization of the US by off-shoring most of America’s manufacturing capacity. These policies were continued and expanded radically under Clinton’s globalization, “free-trade” agenda which, when combined with the steady roll-back of the Depression era regulations on the financial sector (completed under Clinton with the repeal of Glass-Stegall), and the eight year fiscal free-for-all under Bush II the meltdown was inevitable. You are absolutely correct to be outraged by the current turn of events but by directing your frustration at the Obama administration without recognizing that he’s merely a continuation of a bipartisan effort to save Wall Street at the expense of the rest of us means that you’re continuing to miss a huge part of the picture. Team Obama, like Team Bush before it, serves the ruling class above and beyond all else. Be sure to read those essays I linked above for greater context. More later.

I attended a lecture by Milton Friedman in the 70's. He talked about the monetarist theory and said that our government should NEVER use it because it would be destructive when in the hands of the power brokers in Washington. Everything he said has come to pass.

Easy solution when u see a department of revenue van commit a traffic violation just pull them over and remind them of the violation they committed and what the penalty is for it. We are all pretty much on the same team. If everyone remembers that we should have no problems.
