Hi all – sorry for the delay once again.  As it turns out – this was Stars Wars Weekend at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Formerly MGM).  As the geek that I am, I couldn’t resist taking my family over there this weekend.  Given that I finally finished my semester and got all the exams out of the way as well as the papers, I just couldn’t find myself bringing the ‘puter along this weekend.

Yes, I left the date as yesterday – don’t want to throw the carnival off.  Anyway – before we get in to this past week’s submissions, today is Memorial Day.  Today is a day of remembrance and of thanks.  Today we should all take a little time out to remember what makes this country great and the sacrifices made of all the soldiers before us that gave their lives for FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY in defense of the American way.  We are the greatest country in the world despite what the Obamessiah and the O-bots are trying to do to us.  We will overcome the attempts by our socialist leaders to bring us down.  One thing to remember today is that when Americans (we the regular citizens of this country) have our backs up against the wall – we fight back.  We haven’t forgotten what we believe in and we will do what we need to keep our liberties and to ensure that our children and grandchildren can have the save liberties and freedoms that we enjoyed.

Let us not forget the unnecessary death of thousands of lives on 9/11.  Let them not die in vain.  It seems that many in this country have returned to a 9/10 mentality.  Keep their memories alive on this day as well.  Let us remember our history and all that has made this country great and let us not forget it.  For, if we forget it, the Obama sheeple will have won.

Finally, if you see a servicemember, not only today, but on any given day, please be sure to tell them thanks.  They are today’s defenders of freedom.  The need to hear they have the hearts and thanks of regular citizens.  They never hear the truth in the media – which often times is their only link to the outside world – especially for those on deployment.

With having said all that – Welcome to the Carnival!  There were not very many submissions this past week – but – the ones whe did get are all great.  Make sure you visit the contributors and let them know what you think.

Conservative

John Kaduk presents CAFE Kills posted at The Right Wing.

John – what are you doing?  You’re actually using facts, man!  Don’t you know that facts and truth don’t mean anything these days?  This post goes along with the one submitted by Steve Farber down there.  Make sure you check his out.  I’m sure you’ll have some comments for him.  Yours is a factually based response to his emotionally based support of the CAFE standards.  It seems to me he supports them to help reduce carbon emissions and get people of out their cars – or – maybe – I just totally misread him.

Silicon Valley Blogger presents How To Kill Your Credit Instantly With Mortgage Fraud And Subprime Borrowing posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “I wanted to spotlight how mortgage fraud has impacted our nation.”

I would say that you accomplished that with this post.  I think your pointers are good info for the uninformed and vulnerable.  However, I still have no sympathy for boneheads who got in to homes they knew they could not afford.  They should lose them.  For those who are thinking about buying homes – this post is helpful.  Also, I would hope anyone buying a home now would absolutely have to go through the entire vetting process – verification of employment, verification of income, verification of identity, and a minimum 20% down payment. I’m sure if this process was still in place, that family you mentioned would not have had $100,000 to put down and never would have found themselves in that predicament.

The Smarter Wallet presents How A Swine Flu Pandemic Affects Our Economy posted at The Smarter Wallet, saying, “What could happen if a pandemic hits? How will it affect our nation?”

You should also look at the economy during the 1918 pandemic.  You’ll see that this does indeed affect our economy.  This epidemic is not anywhere near done.  Being a public health scholar at this time, I can tell you that with a mortality rate of 1,000 people – this means there are at least 100,000 that have been infected.  This will be a full-blown pandemic within the next 6 months.  Otherwise – I think you are spot on with your assessment.

Madeleine Begun Kane presents The “We Did Nothing Wrong, & Nancy Should Have Stopped Us” Song posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness.

Actually, this is pretty good.  I realize this is supposed to be sarcasm – but – your words actually ring true whether you really meant it or not.  We don’t torture and we did not torture.  Sorry – but – waterboarding is not torture no matter what you guys on the left think.  It doesn’t even come close to the definition.  But, given the fact you guys on the left actually believes it is – then surely, Pelosi should also be your enemy now as she knew every step of the way.  She is a liar and needs to step down.

C. E. Dowalt presents The Rape of Chrysler and the New Progressive Mafia posted at Money Confidential.

C.E. – great post.  I’ve been searching for the right term – and now I have it – The New Progressive Mafia.  You have done an excellent job of defining it using real-world examples.  We’re gonna have to put those crime bosses in Washington out of business ourselves.  They don’t believe in the sanctity of contracts – what more do we need as proof this madness will just continue?

News

Wenchypoo presents The Protectionist Plastic Police posted at Wisdom From Wenchypoo’s Mental Wastebasket.

When I first heard about this proposal – I wasn’t sure how I felt about it.  However, the more I learned about it – the more I began to hate it.  Those guys on the left will say we on the right only want to protect this big corporations.  What they don’t understand is that this new bill undermines our constitutionally protected rights to enter in to contracts.  Again, as you so rightly pointed out, this is the Obamessiah coming to the rescue of those idiots that don’t want to take responsibility for  their own actions.  Anybody who gets a credit card without reading the contract is an idiot and doesn’t deserve a credit card.

This law needs to be repealed.  It is a direct assault on the constitution and once again keeps people from learning how to be responsible with their money.  Those fees and increased interest rates were punishment.  Where I grew up – if you broke the rules – you got punished.  You deserved to be punished and you took the punishment knowing exactly why.

The best way to avoid punishment is to not break the rules.  The best way to avoid this problem altogether is not to get a credit card and not to go in to debt.  I now live by a cash only rule.  If I don’t have enough money in the bank to buy it and if I can’t pay for it in cash – I can’t afford it.

Wenchypoo presents Piety is No Substitute for Technique posted at Wisdom From Wenchypoo’s Mental Wastebasket.

Awe Wenchypoo – let’s call a spade a spade – they are losers!  Your assessment of the Obamessiah and his sheeple are 100% on spot.  But, given the fact that since his election the number of Independents have grown and both the numbers of Dems and Repubs have fallen – I would say he is a one-termer and people are starting to wake up.  Great post.

Steve Faber presents How We?ll Be Forced To Drive the Most Fuel Efficient Cars – Even if We Don?t Want To posted at super gas saver.

Howdy Steve – a very excellent discussion.  I realize you are probably very serious about your discussion and you actually support the legislation that the Obamessiah admin is about to force down our throats.  However, I see a huge revolt going on in this country.  We Americans will not stand idly by while our government forces socialism down our throats.  We will not allow the government to dictate our choices – not even which cars we want to drive.  What you will see  happening around this country is that more and more people will be holding on to their cars longer to avoid purchasing these idiotic killer machines that the government wants us to drive.  You will see a huge used car market opening up.  You will see mechanics becoming more popular and more widely utilized to keep our cars running longer so that we can keep our larger more safe cars.  We will see Americans as a whole rise up against the government and tell them Hell No!  We’ll vote out idiots like Waxman, Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Feinstein, Boxer, McCain, and any other idiot politician that goes along with these socialist plans.  We regular every day citizens are a helluva lot smarter than what those idiotic elitist politicians give us credit for.  As I stated in a previous discussion – we are Americans and when our backs are put up against a wall – we come out fighting.  We’re already being pushed – it’s not going to be too much longer before we’re up against that wall.

Wenchypoo presents Now I’M Changing the Marketing Plan posted at Wisdom From Wenchypoo’s Mental Wastebasket.

All I can say to this is – Bwahahahaha!

Eric Gargiulo presents The future of America? We Need To Look Else Where, Fast! posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, “So now the republicans want change? They seem to have a new leader in the form of ultra conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. Since when did he become such a powerful force in the Republican Party? That is scary.”

Welcome to the Carnival Eric.  I read this post and I read your about page – still can’t figure out where you stand politically.  I guess that’s a good thing.  The only one’s who are saying that Rush is the leader of the Republican party are those in the lefty media.  For regular Americans out here like myself Rush is just another talking head.  Sure, he makes some great points as far as conservatism goes – but – he’s an entertainer.

Here’s the deal – We actually know how to use our brains.  We can actually listen to people like Rush, Hannity, Beck, and O’Reilly and make up our own minds.  We agree with a lot of what they say and we can also disagree with those things they say that are way over the top.  Unfortunately, those on the left that listen to Olbermann, John Stewart, Maddow, and Maher actually believe those idiots and absolutely everything they say.  The difference between those of us on the right and those on the left is that we actually use our brains and we can discern the difference between over-the-top entertaining, rhetoric, and truth.  Rush is an entertainer and a lot of what he says is just to drive those guys on the left out of their minds.

Allen Scott presents Piracy posted at Journey Across the Sky, saying, “The more things change the more they remain the same. From the halls of montezuma to the shores of tripoli once again our navy is sent to fight pirates on the high seas but we at home are called upon to fight piracy on the sea of commerce.”

Allen – I love this analogy!  I must say this is probably the must read post of the week.  I think you’ve nailed it.  There will be a lot of wings sprouting soon.

SpkTruth2Pwr presents Dear Cheney: Torture is NOT a Path to Jusitce posted at The Apathy Remedy, saying, “A blog about why Cheney should have spoken publicly while VP or forever hold his peace…especially on the issue of torture”

I can answer the question as to why Cheney is speaking out now – it’s because Obama and his administration have openly and directly accused him of committing “war crimes.”  They have called him out by name while he was attempting to live his retirement on the sidelines.  The lefty loonies in D.C. forced him to defend himself and the policies that he supported.  In those immortal words of Rambo – they “drew first blood.”

Conservative

Rich Bordner presents Sooo, This is Change we can Believe In? « The Pugnacious Irishman posted at The Pugnacious Irishman, saying, “In this post I comment on Obama’s pushing of the stimulus bill. Nothing fancy, just old school thought applied to the current scene.”

I like the way you think Rich.  We wouldn’t be in this mess if people just used common sense like that.  If we lived our personal lives like the government does – we’d all have been in the poor house a long time ago.  You might want to add – if you can’t pay for it in cash – you can’t afford it.

Cmblake6 presents Qur’an Challenge posted at Cmblake6′s Weblog.

There is a great video up at Chris’s place – you gotta see this yourself.

John Kaduk presents Be Like Sweden! posted at The Right Wing.

John – when I read this earlier in the week – I was hoping you would submit this.  I checked my blog carnival before I left a comment.  Let’s just hope we don’t actually go down that European road – as we can all see – their way doesn’t work either.

Selkirk presents Can We Foreclose on the White House? posted at Political Castaway Blog: Broadcasting Conservatism to Rescue America.

I know I certainly would like to at this point!  Excellent discussion regarding the “mortgage bailout.”  Just FYI – did you know that this bill also has a provision to incentivise mortgage lenders?  You know – the same provisions that caused this mess in the first place?  The bill states that a mortgage lender that provides a loan under this stimulus plan will get $1,000 for every loan completed.  Hmm…how does that do anything but provide incentive for predatory lenders again?

Selkirk presents We Are On The Verge of Revolution Again posted at Political Castaway Blog: Broadcasting Conservatism to Rescue America.

I think so too!  In fact, I’m willing to join in that revolution myself.  I think the final spark to light the flame is when they attempt to take away our 2nd Amendment rights.  The founders specifically put that right in there for the people to protect themselves from a tyrannical government – which it appears we are headed in that direction.  You have provided many examples of catalysts – its not going to take much more if you ask me.

Democrats

Evan Pfaff presents President’s Day Edition: What Can you Gain From Playing Rec Sports? posted at Who’s In First Blog, saying, “Having a good hoops game helped Arne Duncan secure a spot in President Obama’cabinet.”

Very interesting story there Evan.  By that standard I should seek out a cabinet position as well.  But, what I see missing is whether or not this guy actually has a background in education.  What kind of jobs did he hold before being named to Secretary of Education?  Has he ever worked in the education field?  If not, that’s just plain crazy.  May as well put American education in last around the globe.

Lance Cooper presents Obama?s Stimulus Plan Is A Complete Joke posted at Recession Thoughts, saying, “The presidnet’s stimulus plan is nothing more than government waste, and government waste will not ‘pump prime’ the economy into recovery.”

A most excellent look at the stimulus plan and what we can look forward to.  I like your suggestions for real recovery.  I would have to agree – the plan that was passed is not only a complete joke – but absolutely dangerous for this country. Good one Lance.  Come back again, ya hear!

Silicon Valley Blogger presents Obama?s Foreclosure Bailout Plan: Should There Be Help For Homeowners? posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “Thanks!”

NP!  You’re welcome. My answer is – nope – we shouldn’t be bailing out homeowners.  As you pointed out in your discussion – 90% of homeowners have played by the rules and are not in foreclosure and we pay our bills on a monthly basis.  Why should the majority bail out the minority that were irresponsible?  That is socialism at its best.

The Smarter Wallet presents Will The Obama Economic Stimulus Check and 2009 Stimulus Plan Save The Economy? posted at The Smarter Wallet, saying, “Thanks!”

NP! You’re welcome. Thanks for the brief history on the beginning of “stimulus.”  However, I don’t see 13$/week stimulating the economy at all.  It is such a small amount that it won’t be a noticeable difference and you can’t really buy anything with that.  Given the fact that inflation is on the rise – by the time this year ends – that $13 will be completely wiped out.  As for the other “two bird with one stone” provisions you mentioned – sure – fixing the infrastructure is a good idea – but – as you also pointed out – there are very few “shovel ready” projects and this money does nothing to stimulate the economy immediately.

Great post.

Madeleine Begun Kane presents Ode To Roland Burris posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness.

Once again I find myself agreeing with you.  Another rare moment, but – I would think that everyone on both sides of the aisle sees the need to make sure this guy resigns.

KP Silverman presents Stimulating Thoughts posted at Kpsilverman’s Weblog, saying, “common sense for the new millenium”

Hi KP – welcome to the Carnival.  There are several areas in your discussion that I an agree with – mostly that allowing Pelosi and Reid – the most far left leaning politicians in D.C. to handle the stimulus bill was by far the biggest mistake that Obama made regarding this bill.  However, might I suggest you actually read this bill yourself?  You can see it at recovery.org or at readthestimulus.org.  You will see that this truly is a pork filled bill and every American in this country should be screaming about it.  The CBO – which is a Democrat majority – has said this bill in its current form will damage this country immensely to the point of no return.  There is more pork in this bill than there is stimulus.  And..yes..Pelosi did actually try to push contraception and STD prevention in this bill.

If you are a true liberal that values privacy and human rights – you should be outraged by this bill.  If you thought Bush and the Patriot Act was “Big Brother” then this bill should outright scare the bejeezus out of you.  The government will now have full access to your entire medical history and your financial information and you can’t stop them. The biggest problem -as you mentioned – is that the media failed us all.  Rather than report in an un-biased fashion and examine just what was in the bill – they were complicit in trying to divert our attentions elsewhere.

Also – you can’t blame this economic mess on “the last eight years” under Bush.  We are in this mess because of both parties over decades of government interference in private business.  The last 8 years didn’t help much with inflating government.  But – this bill has now added 32 NEW government departments and increases the size of government more than the last 8 years – and all done in one fail swoop.

Additionally – this is not the largest tax cut in history.  I have provided links on this blog in the past.  The combined 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts are in fact the largest in history.  While Obama’s tax cuts will put $13/week back in your paycheck – the Bush tax cuts put back $90/week.

I like a lot of what you had to say there – but – some of it you just stuck to the Democrat party line.  You need to look beyond your party line and read things for yourself.  This is a stinker of a bill and it is going to hurt us all.

Libertarian

DWSUWF presents Obama Embraces the Bush/Cheney Unitary Executive. Again and again and again. posted at Divided We Stand United We Fall, saying, “Why do so many on the left greet Obama’s support and active defense of the Bush/Cheney model of the unitary executive with a yawn? It is not the principle of checks, balances and constitutional protections that inform their view of the world. For some (many?) on the left, it is about blind loyalty to a leader and a party. From their perspective, Bush/Cheney executive power is not a problem if Obama is in the White House. Apparently, with the ring of power in Barack Obama’s benevolent hands, the Bush/Cheney executive power will only be used for good. Just put your trust in Barack -not in the rule of law – not in the Constitution – but in the man.”

Good one DWSUWF – I have nothing further to add here.

Len Penzo presents I’m Just Askin’: Why Bother Being Fiscally Responsible Anymore? posted at Len Penzo . Com, saying, “President Obama’s $75B “rescue plan” for those who are in danger of losing their home is one more reason why it no longer pays to be fiscally responsible. Long live the People’s Democratic Republic of the United States!”

Bwahahaha!  Good one, Len.  Seriously, if Obama really wants to suggest everyone should live within their means – how can he possibly think that by allowin

g people to take out loans under this plan equaling 105% of their home value as living within their means?  Isn’t this the kind of irresponsible activity that caused this mess in the first place.  You must have liked Rick Santelli’s rant also then! I too would like the answers to your 6 questions.

Abhishek presents The Changing face of Public Opinion and its neutrality posted at Celebrate Technology…, saying, “Public and mass opinion and how it has changed in the current era of user generated content (web 2.0) as compared with the traditional strongholds of mass media including news corporations, TV, newspaper, magazines, rallies, Political gatherings etc…”

Howdy Abhishek – welcome to the Carnival.  Great post regarding the “new media.”  Of importance regarding today’s technology – Obama was able to manipulate and utilize all the new media to his advantage during this last election.  I’m in agreement with you that the Internet will be the dominating means for guaging and changing public opinion in years to come, moreso than regular TV news and print media.

C.G. Salgado presents Puerto Rico Statehood: To Be or Not To Be? posted at Inside Government.

An inside look at the history of Puerto Rico and what is behind the reasoning that they have not yet become a state of our union.  This is a very interesting read C.G.  While it has crossed my mind occasionally, I have never actually pursued looking for the answer.

Aetius Romulous presents The Hunt For The Guilty posted at ScreamBucket.

Welcome to the Carnival Aetius – While I certainly subscribe to the underlying idea here – personal responsibility – there is definitely plenty of blame to go around between Wall Street, large corporations, and government interference – I don’t think all the blame should be placed on those of us who want success and expect to keep what we earned, provided we took all precautions to do what was right and earned our successes honestly.

Riversider presents 85 Ways To Build Community posted at Broadgate Is Great, saying, “85 ways ordinary people can make their communities better places to live, without spending lots of money.”

Well – given the fact that this bill is going to damage our economy further – all we will have left is our communities, friends, and families to turn to.  These are good suggestions – I’ll let this stay!

Jason Zuckerman presents Stimulating Art Stimulates the Economy posted at Jay Zuck’s Sketch of the Day, saying, “I argue in this blog post that the funding of the arts has a direct stimulative effect on the economy and thus it was an integral part of the stimulus bill and not as some contended, pork-barrel spending.”

Hi Jason – sure – I can buy your argument here – however, I might point out that ALL of your information came from the NEA which is a direct beneficiary of the bill.  Do you think it’s possible that there is some bias there and that perhaps they did not report all the facts?  Where has all their past monies actually gone?  Have you as an artist actually benefited in anyway from the NEA? Just saying.

Republicans

Wenchypoo presents The Pelosi-tariat and the Totalitarian Temptation posted at Wisdom From Wenchypoo’s Mental Wastebasket.

Welcome back Wenchypoo!  An excellent dissertation on Stretch Pelosi.  Unfortunately, it seems we on the right were the only one’s who saw this coming.  It certainly appears she is directing this country right now even more than Obama.  After all, this spending bill got pushed through in a rush to fit HER schedule – even over Obama’s own schedule.  I just hope to God that come 2010 we get a Republican majority again and get her out of that seat.

Here we are – once again. Considering it was Thanksgiving Week – we still had a pretty good turnout with the submissions. I’m thinking this will probably be what it will be like through to the rest of the year as well given this being the holiday season and all! Hopefully, we’ll pick back up again after January.  Also, you’ll notice a common theme in the majority of these posts (bailouts, personal responsibility, and the economy).

RE Ausetkmt presents Lets Fix the Economy Mr President – Use the Paper it’s written on | BadGalsRadio – RootsRock since 99′ posted at BadGalsRadio Daily Blog, saying, “We are suggesting that the President Elect Barack Obama consider the most viable instant economic options available; including the industrialization of hemp and hemp products.  if it was good enough for the founding fathers and he’s a constitutionalist he will recognize the relationship and put america back on the right economic trail.”

Welcome to the Carnival Ausetkmt.  BTW – what prompted this latest round of pro-hemp articles on the blogosphere?  Yours is about the 10th I’ve seen this week.  Irregardless of what started it – I would have to agree with this post.  Yes, there are some of us out here on the right that do know the difference between agricultural hemp and recreational marijuana.  I don’t know the history – perhaps you can fill us in – what prompted the country to move away from hemp products?  It is indeed a durable plant and can be used in a variety of manners.  However, I don’t think this is the savior of our economic woes.  Additionally, you stated that our forefathers were “users.”  Are you referring to the hemp or the marijuana?  If you’re talking about MJ – it would be great if you could provide some documented testimony.

Since I am a loyal constitutional conservative, and I read the founding fathers regularly – I have never come across anything that even hinted that any of those guys would sneak out behind Constitution Hall to take in a few tokes!

Madeleine Begun Kane presents Dear Bush, Doesn’t Your Brush Need Clearing? posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness.

Hey, Mad Kane – be careful of what you wish for there with the early retirement.  This would be absolutely great and it would REALLY piss of the Democrats:

President Bush resigns (as you wish) Leaving Dick Cheney as the President.  He then gets to choose who he wants as his Vice President.  Dick Cheney chooses Condi Rice as his V.P.

President Cheney resigns (as you wish) Leaving Condi Rice as the President.  Not only would SHE become the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT – she would also be THE FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT – even if it were for a short period of time – but – it would just absolutely piss you guys off on the left there.  So – I agree – let them take an early retirement! LOL ;)

SpkTruth2Pwr presents Motivation and Morale in Teamwork posted at The Apathy Remedy, saying, “How do you make sense of a group of individuals so that you maintain cohesiveness and utilize members effectively? This article argues the keys to coalition building lay in the ability to motivate others and maintain the morale as the leader of a group”

Eh – I’ll let this by considering I can see how this could be related to the incoming administration while Obama tries to build his cabinet.  Actually, I remember all of these lessons when I was taking various management classes.  However, regarding motivation and morale (specifically internal motivation) Given that Obama has chosen Clinton Term #3 for his cabinet members – they are all selfish individuals – unless Obama caters to their internal selfishness and quests for power – I don’t see how there will be improved morale in order to better this country.  What I see is his cabinet members undermining him.  He chose not to surround himself with his own people.  He used Clinton’s people.

SpkTruth2Pwr presents Confidence Goes A Long Way: Economy Talk posted at The Apathy Remedy, saying, “What defines the foundations of a sound economy? Confidence. And it will best be established by trickle-up economics.”

This is a most excellent article.  Yes, the bailout of CitiGroup and the cabinet announcements by Obama boosted the confidence in the stock market.  However, the market is just a small player and a fraction of what makes up our “economy.”  You need to look at CPI, GDP, GNP, and Worker Productivity as well.  The only thing that is happening right now is that they have slowed down our journey to the big “R” as you put it.  In fact, the economic experts are still saying that we will be in a full blown depression by this time next year.  In fact, these bailouts will ultimately be the downfall of the economy because the treasury is just printing money to cover these commitments. Our dollar continues to be devalued around the world because it’s getting to the point it is almost not worth the paper it’s being printed on. I wouldn’t rely on the ups and downs of the stock market as an indicator of economic prosperity or doom. Lastly, trickle-up economics, IMHO, will never work.  I’ve never gotten a job from a poor person! ;)

SpkTruth2Pwr presents Institutions CAN work for you posted at The Apathy Remedy, saying, “We can all be distrustful of institutions! But this article will tell you why you shouldn’t be and how you can actually derive some benefit from them!”

This kind of goes together with Archvillain’s post.  I don’t have anything further to add to this.  You put everything together quite eloquently and I’m in full agreement here.

Ron McKie presents My dick just got hard posted at Phuck Politics.

That’s pretty funny!  (The title, not the article).  But, I will agree with the article – I hope that Russian economist is correct.  I’ve been saying the same thing – we need to reset our economy and let the free-market work its magic rather than moving towards socialism with these freakin’ bailouts.  I don’t necessarily agree with the assessment that the country will fracture like that though!  You must be a gamecock! LOL.

Archvillain presents Epic Fail-out posted at A Dark and Sinister Force for Good, saying, “Everything old is new again … and brings the same bad consequences”

Nice to see ya here again Archvillain.  Once again, a most excellent post.  I agree wholeheartedly with your resolution – I started a blogroll (which started right before blogrolling went down so I only got one person signed on) that is sorta related to your solution.  I say there should NEVER be an incumbent politician.  It’s the career politicians that put us on this path – and – in staying with personal responsibility – we the people were irresponsible by not paying attention to the crap they were pulling all these years.

Silicon Valley Blogger presents Second Stimulus Check: Strong Opinions On A Second Economic Stimulus Package posted at The Digerati Life.

YES YES YES! I like the way you guys think!  You’ll see some comments here very similar to what you guys are stating over there.  I say, HELL NO to a second stimulus package.  I love the way you guys translate the Bernanke “gobbledigook” as you put it.  Do you think we have anybody left up in D.C. that might actually see the dangers in this proposal?

Matthew S. Urdan presents The Presidential Pardon Explained posted at Inside Government.

Joshua Dorkin presents Builders’ Confidence Drops Like An Elevator With A Snapped Cable “Crisis” May Hand Obama A Golden Opportunity posted at Real Estate Investing For Real.

Hey Joshua – very interesting post there. I can see how, using the comparison with FDR, that Obama could score points.  However, it didn’t look like you said it directly, but – it seems like you might approve of a bailout for homeowners?!?!  Personally, I hope that doesn’t happen.  I say, let the free-market system work it’s magic.  Let those people who never should have bought a home lose them.  There will be a large inventory of previously owned homes – bringing prices down considerably.  However, investors will be ready to grab them up.  As the homes continue to get bought up by investors and those who actually can afford to own a home, prices go up and new construction happens once again.  It will take time – but – it would absolutely suck for the government to come in and save those unqualified homeowners from their mortgage lenders.  What about the other 94% of the country that are still paying their mortgages on time?  Let’s not save the minority again at the expense of the majority.

Ron McKie presents God fucking damn posted at Phuck Politics.

A most excellent rant there Mr. McKie!  I couldn’t have said it better myself.  That commitment of $7.7 trillion is the basis of my discussion with SpkTruth2Pwr up there.  Our economy will be in a total tailspin by this time next year because of all that tender being printed up and handed to every crooked business in this country.

U.S. Common Sense presents Bailout or Bankruptcy: What will Congress recommend? posted at U.S. Common Sense, saying, “Do the automakers deserve a bailout or do they deserve bankruptcy? Maybe they deserve both. See how.”

Hey, U.S. – thanks for the submission.  You snuck this one just under the line! I’m all for the bankruptcy thing if it means breaking all the union contracts.  I say – let them fail – then – let them move to right to work states!  Excellent discussion here.
