“The Death Rattle Grows Louder”

House OKs $819B stimulus bill with GOP opposition 




WASHINGTON – In a swift victory for President Barack Obama, the Democratic-controlled House approved a historically huge $819 billion stimulus bill Wednesday night with spending increases and tax cuts at the heart of the young administration’s plan to revive a badly ailing economy. The vote was 244-188, with Republicans unanimous in opposition despite Obama’s frequent pleas for bipartisan support.



I’m not an Economist, but its clear to me why Obama’s “Stimulus Plan” is vitally needed … and why this COWARDLY display by the House Republicans in voting UNANIMOUSLY AGAINST it today will prove to be the Final Death Nail in the GOP’s coffin.  First the reason(s) ‘why’ the Stimulus Plan is needed NOW.

You folks read the news or watch TV just like I do, and this recent tsunamiof ‘Pink Slips’ issued by companies is staggering. And when you have a financial hemorrhaging of an Economy ~ as ours is now ~ this threatens not only our Standard of Living, but the very essence of our National Security. So what can aid in turning this thing around: a “Stimulus Package”.

To ‘stimulate’ means to Spend, Folks! The first phase of the Stimulus Plan was Passed and enacted not too long ago to stabilize the Banking and other Financial Institutions; now what is needed is a “Spending Package” to get Americans WORKING and gainfully Employed to receiving a regular paycheck. A paycheck that will afford Americans the opportunity to BUY from companies AGAIN …. who in turn will HIRE employees AGAIN …. who then these same employees can afford cars, homes, and SAVE again. But first: the government MUST SPEND to ‘jump start’ the Economy. Sure, there will be the odd ducks that ‘work the system’ and/or greedy opportunists that will make a ‘quick buck, and some ‘pork’ buried in the Bill  ~ this is to be expected, unfortunately; however, unless we get this “Stimulus Package” Passed …. a serious DEPRESSION is right around the corner and then truly all hell will break loose.

BTW ~ have you noted a stabilization occurring on Wall Street recently, hum?

Now allow me to turn to these lilly-livered WIMPS called ‘House Republicans’, okay!!

Republicans have no Plan other then the tired and stale mantra of  “What would Reagan do” and of course: tax cuts. That’s it! So why did the House Republicans vote in ‘lockstep’ against Obama’s “Stimulus Package” today? We know they (Republicans) have no Plan, and we also know Republicans have gotten their heads handed to them in the ’06 and ’08 Elections. So what happened today?

I’ll tell you.

I listen to Right wing radio. And I do so primarily to gain an Understanding as to ‘why’ Republicans do what they do ~ like what House Republicans did today. Beginning shortly before Obama took Office, Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, and similar red nosed  Clowns of their ilk … began TRASHING Republicans in Congress! Yep, these babbling Right wing ‘Talking Heads’ slandered, demeaned, and ridiculed ANY Republican Comgress-person that dared ‘act nice’ or civil to President Barack Obama; to the point that during the last several days these radio Right wing ‘Hate Mongers’ Pledged to ‘Call Out’ the NAMES of Republican House-members that dare vote FOR the Obama Stimulus Package!

Well, today we saw the effects of Rush Limbaugh-Hannity-Savage  et al SHAMING of the House Republicans: these kats were too scared to buck the ‘mean spiriterd’, Narrow Minded Right wing and their ugly talking mouths. Sad.

But what is going to be even sadder is this: when the Economy ‘turns around’ ~ and it will, and before 2010 ~ these chicken shxx House Republicans will be GONE! Voted out and Declared an Extinct Species! I’ve already told you folks that Limbaugh and his Clones are living on borrowed time, haven’t I.

I’m enjoying the HELL out of watching the ‘Death Rattle’ of the Republican Party and their Right wing “Death Eaters”!

And for all you ‘Joe Six Packs’, Hillbilly lovin’, gun tottin’ red necks:  keep in mind that the Obama “Stimulus Package” is designed to HELP “YOU”, while TODAY you saw just how much Republicans and their Right wing ‘Mud Slingers’ REALLY care about ‘YOU” and YOUR Family …. and your ‘Way of Life’, didn’t we.

Sad. It really is.
