Nonsense

From The Boston Globe

As a rebuke to congressmen who stand in the way of Obama's economic stimulus plan, the still Christ-figure Obama said, "We can't delay and we can't go back to the same worn-out ideas that led us here in the first place," Obama said. "Let me be clear: those ideas have been tested, and they have failed."

"The time for talk is over. The time for action is now," Obama added, challenging lawmakers in both parties to "rise to this moment."


The joke is that what Obama plans is simply more of the same on steroids. What hasn't been tried in a long damn time is straightforward laissez-faire stlye economics coupled with sound hard-money policy.

Bob's analogy in the article below still hold's solid. Obama wants to take blood from our legs to inject into our arms. This will not stop the allergic reaction/infection that so plagues us.

Where are you, Jim Beam? Only you seem to listen--at only six bucks a pint...

The more that Obama talks, the more that I endeavor to stimulate the sour-mash whisky industry in Kentucky.

  1. Pour me a double, Aristos! When does the imbibe tax begin? "Nonsense" is the perfect title for that article. The scariest part was reading the comments at the end. 7 of the 8 (I think) were loyal Democrats who would donate their reproductive organs if Obama said it was necessary to bring "change". Yes, self-castration is change, quite a radical one, and a fitting metaphor for what the Democrats are trying to do to this country. Bottoms up! (but don't drop the soap, the Democrats are here!)
