    I prefer frozen yogurt… or in Biden’s case… custard.

    Well how do you end the worse recession since 1929?

    I’m talking to you GOP!

    We spend our way out of it the way we did last time, because if the economy doesn’t get better, nothing will. When FDR gave into the conservatives and introduced tighter government spending, the economy promptly took a nose-dive. Killing the bill to fund the economy will keep us down for years longer if something isn’t done. You don’t create jobs by not spending, folks. Of course, the GOP likes the idea of keeping workers poor and desperate, because that keeps them cheap. Raising the minimum wage is “inflationary!” but cutting taxes more for the rich during a deficit is “stimulating!” Yeah, for their bank accounts…it didn’t work for Reagan, it won’t work now.

    I read that article, scary stuff, especially when you consider that Krugman correctly called the housing meltdown.

    The only thing that can end the slide is faith. Faith in our economy, faith in our workers and faith in our government to provide incentives for industry to move back to the U.S. Some are trying their hardest to create failure of the present administration at all costs. If it fails, the whole country comes down with it. First, bring back the 40 hour work week.

    “Do we learn chinese?”

    • Chinese is a very beautiful language, maybe I’ll go ahead and get started on my Mandarin.
    • Anyone want to watch Nihao Kai-lan with me? It’s an awesome show and she’s so cute!

    ^ No, because he’s an idiot. Everyone knows that the only way to be accurate with statements like that is to say it from the deck of an aircraft carrier while wearing a flight suit with the words “Mission Accomplished” draped behind you.

    Then, and only then, can I take what he says seriously.

    ”^ funny Jade, but that “mission” was accomplished and they came home safely. There are many battles in a mission and there are many missions in a war. ”

    • I agree, after that statement we had a complete troop draw-down and saw no more real troop engagements, such as losses, etc. You’re right, “mission accomplished” has absolutely no comedic equivalency with the Stimulus employment projections.

    “But Joe is out there banging the drum of stimulus is working.”

    • Just like there’s no comedic equivalency with this statement and “the principles of the Economy are strong” or the trumpet blowing of our flawless efforts in the war in Iraq – which ended that prophetic day in 2003.

    “Wo jee wei sho e dien djien jong wen.”

    • I think it’s the spelling that’s throwing off Babelfish. Just like I’m not used to your spelling of Ni hao. Translate? :3
