Totally off topic ladies and gentlemen, I know, but here is some dumb shit I have to put up with around here where I live. Hope this does not roll out where you are. http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/news/local/new-computerized-technology-with-palm-scanning-machines-is-being-installed/article_b48bbf3a-dceb-54a7-94ba-58b32f5a3192.html

Obama coud have applied that $9 Billion to the following program and produced over 30 million jobs in less than one year:


To relieve the pressure, prevent the collapse of a once vibrant and beneficial system of assistance to those in need; and to encourage support for those who have worked hard to support others, the time has come to initiate the following ECONOMIC FREEDOM AND STABILITY ACT.

The simplicity of the following program is exactly what America needs to take the pressure off burdening supports, and encourage re-investment in the American way of life.   



Instead of giving any further bail-outs of billions of dollars to the banks, financial houses, or corporations that will squander the money on obscene and unearned bonuses without giving any thought to using those funds for the betterment of the poor and middle class, the following plan is presented instead:


There are 50-60 million baby boomers who remain employed in the work force. We suggest that the United States government offer each of those employed baby boomers $1 million dollars each, tax free, as severance to retire from their employment within 30 days of receipt of the $1 million dollar severance with the following stipulations:

I.          The new EFSA retiree MUST cease their current employment and not hire on as an employee anywhere in America ever again. 50-60 million job openings will occur – Younger potential employees and college graduates are then hired.  Unemployment costs saved and employment opportunities will immediately be resolved. (The new retirees CAN start a business, and they can eventually hire new employees too).

II.         The new EFSA retiree MUST buy a new AMERICAN made energy saving, green rated automobile. With 50-60 million new American made vehicles ordered the auto industry will once again become stable and solvent with jobs and needed resources enjoying economic growth- Employment, Environment and Auto Industry fixed.

III.        The new EFSA retiree MUST either buy an American house/condo or pay off their existing mortgage thereby increasing jobs, and stabilizing the housing and mortgage issues – Employment and Housing Crisis fixed.

IV.       The new EFSA retiree MUST purchase a life insurance policy to insure that those who depend on them for support will be taken care of in the event of untimely death or medical setback. –Dependents and Caregiver Coverage Fixed.

V.        The new EFSA retiree MUST purchase and carry yearly medical, dental and vision coverage for themselves and their dependents, decreasing healthcare costs and burdens for the nation, and ensure continued wellbeing and quality of life.  – Financial, Employment and Healthcare Coverage Fixed.

VI.       The new EFSA retiree MUST forfeit all future Social Security, Medicare, and/or Medicaid benefits decreasing trillions of dollars of social welfare costs; eliminating the financial burdens on the coming generations, and encouraging self-determination.  Budget Deficit fixed.

*** Certainly even some of the noted suggestions warrant further consideration, or the opportunity to be further elaborated on and implemented.  Such an economic and stability program could be in effect by the end of 2011 without much financial investment considering the billions of taxpayer dollars being wasted each minute as you read this proposal.

That just makes me furious how much of our tax money was spent and that doesn't count the interest. Cronyism at it's worse they were big obama donors and went Solyndra went down they got paid before the govt. who lost big time.

Great link on the palm scanning. That is frightening. And they are indoctrinating the kids when they are young and don't know any better.

Just another shithole of taxpayer money. Fuck the hungry people. Useless fuckin eaters anyway.
Oct 18, 2012 at 6:21 PM | Unregistered CommenterSKINFLINT
What's worse?

A. The fact that the only thing "green" about Obama's energy programs is the taxpayer cash they enable Obama's campaign contributors to steal.

B. The fact that Mitt Romney is too much of a coward to call Obama out on it.

I'll go with A, only because unlike Corzine, I have heard Romney bring up Solyndra and others. Either way, I'm getting depressed.

Yeah. I'm super buzz-killed, and fatigue is setting in. You'd never know the country's foundation has rotted to the point of collapse hearing the white noise day in and day out, like bickering over a shuffleboard score on the Titanic. The U.S. leers relentlessly into totalitarianism. I pointed this out to TV watchers recently. They ignored the many examples of law and rights and liberties that are dead and said a dictator would never rise up here, smugly assured that an 18-foot hologram of Hitler would never make it through either political convention.

You almost have to admire how the cult of personality propagated by the corporate media has absolutely diabled people's ability to think in terms of issues. I have friends and family both whose reaction to "the other candidate" on TV is just a photonegative of my nephew's response to Elmo, and he's 2 years old.

The infantilization of the U.S. adult population is a slow motion terror to live through.

Equally, why doesn't Obama call out Romney on his taxpayer funded auto bailout? For the love of God.
Oct 19, 2012 at 8:36 AM | Unregistered CommenterSKINFLINT
here is another one to add to the list.


Skin, Goldman Sachs and a few other very big financial concerns here and abroad are connected to this mess. Romney and Obama will not say much because they are in essence, literally owned by them.

Doesn't anyone find the fact that Goldman wants to use investors money for renewable energy sources somewhat fascinating. The list of bankrupt green companies is what a dumb ass like myself would call a HINT!!!!!!!!!!! Get your money out of these albatrosses while you still can. Really just an exercise to steal yet even more money from unsuspecting millionaires, who by the way are new middle class.

DB, I am reposting this here (from green energy blues) as I was involved in the deregulatory process (and a stakeholder) back in 97-01 and can attest that this article which I have nothing to do with is factually correct and sums it up nicely. However, more serious issues are involved as I have said before and will be elaborated upon hopefully soon.

Placement in jobs retained more than six months through a $500 million Labor Department green-jobs training program is falling 84 percent short of its goal, according to a report released Friday.

The Labor inspector general audit offered a bleak picture of one of President Obama’s chief stimulus and policy goals — creating green jobs.
