  1. I heard an interesting statistic speaking of states. Obama gave more stimulus money to Solyandra than he gave to 35 separate states for road and bridge improvement. I guess Solyandra was considered shovel ready.

    1. I guess Solyandra was considered shovel ready.

      According to some of the financial analysts, it was certainly ready to be put in the ground when it applied for the loan.


    Anyone else seen this? OMG what a fucking clown.

    1. No, John, he’s not a clown.

      Obviously he is doing a Bruce Lee style back-fist at the chinaman. Clearly, Obama is prepared to put 100% of his effort into beating China so we Win The Future – even if he has to confront the yellow peril one at a time.

      Your defeatism, no doubt motivated by racism, will not sink this nation; under Obama’s leadership, we will beat back the oriental menace.

      1. His hand does perfectly blot out the chinaman’s face. So perhaps the next shot included squirting blood.

    2. From that link:

      Rich Shulman writes
      I don’t know much about diplomatic protocols, but I would guess that waving during the group photo is something to avoid.

  3. Stimuli after stimuli?

  4. -Obama has no jobs plan; he has campaign speeches.
    -when do states become responsible for their own finances again?
    -whatever happened to gas tax revenues which are supposed to pay for “infrastructure”???? Every state collects them and so do the feds, but every other bridge is collapsing?

  5. In the last year around this time, the new design of Nike was released, its name is Nike Air Max 2012. The difference is these shoes payed their attention to the Chinese market, and the two main color is white and red color-up. What is more, there are some Chinese specific color on their laces, this add some special characteristics for this New Air Max 2012 shoes on some extent.All of these make you take it easy to buy this shoes, and also improve the selling qualities of Nike Air Max 2012 shoes. They are famous as the latest shoes and have become more and more popular smong the young people. As far as their opinion, Nike is the king of sports shoes, because they are the fans of NBA.

  6. In a telephone call, Ms. Weingarten told me that the reason for her November 2009 move was that she thought it was important for her successor at the United Federation of Teachers not to have her around. “It had nothing to do with taxes. I didn’t even think about it,” Ms. Weingarten said. “I’m sure there are people who do stuff for tax reasons,” she said, but she said she wasn’t one of them: “I think we should be paying taxes, and I pay a lot of them.”
