This IS a nightmare (and a warning)

Look (below) at what the states are doing: borrowing (in the billions) from our Federal Government to make their unemployment payments.  And of course, where does our Federal Government get the money to lend?  The Fed Govt borrows from the world (mostly, China!) You know this is bad.  You can't keep borrowing because at some point your creditor will cut you off.   When you get cut off, things get REALLY bad.

We must get our economy is jobs, jobs, jobs and jobs!  Are we doing enough to get jobs? The 2009 750 billion plus stimulus bill was supposed to be the answer to jobs.  So far, the stimulus bill has not generated jobs (we are at a national unemployment level of 9.7% and that number grossly underestimates this nation's unemployment in that it does not include those who are so dispirited to have quit looking for employment.)

Of course jobs can't be created over night but we are now 15 months into the stimulus bill.  Have we waited long enough?  Is it failing us?  If so, we need to regroup and rethink.  Those who supported the stimulus bill, if it has failed, must have the courage to say it is not working so that we can go to Plan B.  Those who opposed the stimulus bill, if it is not working, must have the decency not to rub it in and say "I told you so."  We need jobs.  We need this economy going.

For some reason, Obama is more worried about amnesty.  He doesn't seem to care about Main Street, or folks in states like Arizona.

All my posts are just my humble opinions.  Please take with a grain of salt.  Smile

It doesn't do any good to hate anyone,
they'll end up in your family anyway...
