    I guess it is true that elected politicians do not actually create jobs: that is up to the market. They cab make laws which will allow a flexible market (you know easier to fire pregnant women, disabled, even gays) but mainly the job they lavish attention on is their own. Strong government has its supporters, but it is sad that we now go along with the power elites and are prepared to ditch our common sense. You already have slavery in the US (prisoners worked for 15 cents an hour) and allow it by proxy in Latin America and Asia. Last visit to US I tried to buy items manufactured in America as souveniers for family and friends, zilch! Even the gift bags were printed in China. I know this is slightly off kilter but I ask, are we returning to the economics of the Roman Empire?

    yes, tourist attractions in Roman times in Britain were small marble salt and pepper shakers representing the Caesar - now we have statues of Obama spewing fish guts and pork intestines.

    Time that we educate the OP... as futile of an attempt that may be.
    How about we hear from the Republicans about this subject matter:

    Representative Geoff Davis (KY-04):
    On the same day Representative Davis issued a press release calling the recovery bill a failure, Representative Davis also issued a press release praising his work in securing over a million dollars from recovery funds for the Carroll County school system.

    Representative Eric Cantor (VA-07)
    "Nearly half of the 30 organizations participating in a job fair Cantor is holding Monday in Culpeper were recipients of the stimulus."

    Representative Aaron Schock (IL-18)
    "The biodiesel plant is ready to go. I want to call for a meeting with the state to guarantee $20 million in loans for the building of the plant. This could produce real jobs and a real stimulus in the next 30 days."

    "Last week, U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock was in East Peoria to award the city's Police Department a $410,000 federal grant to update its aging in-car video camera systems and portable radios... that money was included in the FY 2009 Omnibus Spending Bill that Schock, a Peoria Republican, voted against.

    "Republican U.S. Reps. Aaron Schock and John Shimkus were at Lincoln Land Community College to tout a $350,000 grant for a green technologies education program. Both voted against the budget bill that funded the project after pushing for its inclusion as an earmark."

    But wait... there's more!!!! How about Representative Ed Whitfield??!
    Representative Ed Whitfield sent out a press release calling himself "a tireless champion for community health centers both in Kentucky and throughout the country." Yet, Representative Whitfield voted against the economic recovery package which provided more than $10 million to meet demand at Kentucky health centers and to build new ones across the state.

    Representative Steve King
    "Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, announced today that $570,000 for the U.S. Highway 20 widening project has been included in the federal stimulus bill signed by President Barack Obama earlier in the week."

    And how about we talk to Representative Joe "You Lie!" Wilson, shall we?
    "Rep. Joe Wilson, South Carolina Republican who became famous after yelling, "You lie," during Mr. Obama's addresses to Congress in September, voted against the stimulus. Nonetheless, Mr. Wilson elbowed his way into the rush for federal stimulus cash in a letter he sent to Mr. Vilsack on behalf of a foundation seeking funding. 'We know their endeavor will provide jobs and investment in one of the poorer sections of the Congressional District,' he wrote to Mr. Vilsack in the Aug. 26, 2009, letter."

    And this is just the tip of the iceberg...
    So much for what Byah said. It appears that even Republicans are admitting that the stimulus is working and that it's creating jobs. Too bad nobody has the guts, or the balls, to admit that our beloved negro president was right in this regard.

    Fuckin' hypocrites... all of them.
    And the OP is an idiot. Then again, we all knew this already. :rolleyes:


    ST: Thanks so much for that link. It makes the research that much faster!! :)
