Not. Don't read this one if you want to have a good day... For most of us who watch Fox News or listen to talk radio this is OLD news, but hey, CNBC finally got around to reporting on it, so weak kudos go out to 'em. Oh wait, I bet it's because the President said he was going to tackle this tough nut... and that the Dems are now going to start focusing on it since the stimulus has done nothing but make things worse (or, for an alternate bizarro reality: per the Dems it's stopped things from being much worse).
I shudder to hear that the Prez and Dems are wanting to focus on jobs now. I would guess that, among other horrors I can't even imagine, it means more tax hikes for those of us still working to create government jobs.
Step by step they're taking us to a place that we don't want to go. What truly appalls me is that many of those raising their hands in support of the votes that'll take us there 1) know where we're heading, 2) don't want us to go there, but 3) are willing to sell their souls to stay in power, to cover their own butts.
