Comments: Four Million

Confederate Yankee, I don't agree. Everything that Obama does has an unintended consequence. People are falsely assuming that Obama is successfully buying votes. Not true. He's going to bring this economy crashing down to national devastation by borrowing and spending when we are already precariously over the edge of the cliff, overextended, and hanging onto a bush. We're going to fall. So, if there was "room" for him to buy votes - he'd succeed. But there isn't. He's borrowing beyond our ability to repay. Many negative consequences will result. This will blow up in his face. Hyperinflation will "wipe out" the gains he gave to some. Everything will crash under this weight that the system cannot support. We're less structurally strong as a nation in business and infrastrucure than we were in 1929. He's literally lighting the match that's going to burn down our "Rome". :) He's not going to be re-elected. In fact, I doubt sincerely that our current political system and national unity will withstand what's about to hit. He's thrown the USA into her death throes - the moment this "porkulus package" is passed. I don't think people who anticipate that he's "buying votes" really see the big picture of the calamity he's setting in motion with this plan. Put a fork in her. America's done the moment this bill is signed. It's a death warrant on a democracy that remained intact over 200 years. It will result in the dissolution of the USA. We're in that bad of shape. They think we can always "afford more". Wrong. The Government itself is going to fail - like Wall Street collapsed. Mark my words. A super-tsunami is what Obama will set in motion with this bill.

You must be young. This isn't even close to the great depression...or even the Carter years of double digit inflation and double digit unemployment.

Did you ever sit in an odd/even gas line?
