So there I was watching the Honorable Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives talk about how this stimulus bill must be signed, because if we don’t do something quick, 500 million Americans will loose their jobs.
I had to think for a minute, she didn’t just say 500 million did she? I mean considering there are only 303,824,640 people living in the U.S. according to the CIA’s website, no she must have said 5,000,000 jobs and I misunderstood her, I mean she is the Speaker of the House, surely someone with that much responsibility wouldn’t tell the national media that if a bill doesn’t get signed that more people than there are living in the U.S. will loose their jobs. Surely she knows how many people live in the U.S., right? Wrong!
Tell me how is it, this woman got elected to office? I would really like to know, because so far what has been coming out of her mouth, makes no sense to me whatsoever!
This would get my goat; if I had one [:)]
The American people who voted for Ms. Pelosi, should be ashamed, they elected someone who can’t be bothered to check her facts before she presents them. This is not the first time she has screwed up the message.
As for the so-called Economic Stimulus Package (ESP); what a crock! – why exactly are they calling it a “stimulus” package?
The word Stimulas is Latin dating to 1684 meaning : something that rouses or incites to activity: as a: incentive b: stimulant 1 c: an agent (as an environmental change) that directly influences the activity of a living organism or one of its parts (as by exciting a sensory organ or evoking muscular contraction or glandular secretion.
I will admit, spending $1.5M on a golf course renovation does stimulate me, it makes my head hurt, and my stomach ache! – Why is it that those on the Left seem to think that I am going to believe them when they say that spending $100,000 on door bells is good for the economy! Do they honestly think I am an idiot!?
I am so irritated with this proposed bill, but I am probably more upset with the people who are responsible for making it, like Jim said, “…what part of stop spending my money do the politicians in Washington not understand?”
In my personal opinion the Senators and Congressmen are not playing with a full deck. Some of what they suggest just does not pass the common sense test in any sense of the word.
As the CFO of Axcess, I am the keeper of the finances, and as such approve capital purchases for the company. Jim, like many CEO’s has the dream, he sees the future and always has some new project or product that he wants to purchase for the company, and I say to him what someone should be telling those in Washington. Show me how Axcess will get a positive return on our investment and you have my vote, it’s that simple.
Why those people who we have elected to represent us can’t grasp that concept is beyond me.
Mike Church (a radio host on Sirius Patriot) called the Democrat stimulus bill succubus. After reading what a succubus was, I would have to agree that is a fair comparison! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Succubus
Agreed Jason, it’s getting ridiculous, just like this stimulus bill they are trying to push, I now understand it’s over $920B and it keeps growing! – what part of stop spending my money do the politicians in Washington not understand?
This is incredible! She already said this same thing in a Fox News interview, where Chris Wallace corrected her and said it was 500,000 per month. The fact that she keeps repeating the same mistake over and over does not bode well.
By all means, get the word out, this woman needs to be stopped!
That is too funny. And sadly typical of the rhetoric she spews on a regular basis. May I cross post this?
