So unemployment is supposed to be unacceptably high for years – also Glenn Greenwald is a jerk (just thought I would say) – finally I told you that after caving to North Korea we would cave to Iran next
according to Lawrence Summers, but according to Fox News this morning only about $93,000,000,000 of the economic stimulus money has been spent (it was on the crawler I can’t find a link). Seems to me that if we took the other $600,000,000,000 plus and directed it to corporations to bring manufacturing jobs back onshore we would kill a number of birds with one (OK 600,000,000,000) stones. Am I wrong?
Probably. I’m sure people have a billion reasons why this wouldn’t work, but here is my experience. People who have a job spend money and money keeps the economy moving. It sure seems to me that my way makes a lot more sense than a bunch of fake green jobs.
Glenn Greenwald’s latest column is a classic in selective memory. Somehow the entire 8 years of people questioning the legitimacy of the Bush presidency and wishing him dead in print, on the radio, and on TV has vanished from memory. I refuse to link the jerk but you can find it without too much trouble.
Q and O ties the capitulation to North Korea, and presumably Iran, in with Honduras and makes the point that like Jimmy Carter Obama has never met an anti-American dictator he didn’t like.
