Spendulus Bill Passes Senate Clothure Vote 61- 36..Grab Yer Ankles, America!

A 'lean bill' for $838 billion dollars of our money.

That makes almost ten trillion in bailouts, spending, guarantees, and "stimulus" so far, and believe me there's more to come.

That's 2/3rds of the entire value of our Gross Domestic product - everything produced in the US - last year. Not 2/3rds of the federal budget, but two thirds of what the US economy produced. Enough to pay off 90% of the home mortgages in the entire country in full.

The three stooges of course were Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe and Arlen Specter, with prospective comerce secretary Judd Gregg, who abstained out of respect for his new boss getting an honorable mention.

At least the guys who pulled off the Brinks heist were honest about being thieves.

Remember, I tried to warn you... when Obama gets through with you, you'd better hope you have some change left.

The funny thing was, everybody who talked about how Bush was spending too much always triggered a nagging disquiet in me. That's because I knew that such talk could easily result in demoralization and a Democrat control.

And I know that when the Dems are talking about Repubs spending too much, the Dems were planning on out spending them by 10 or 100X.

That's how they operate. Everything they accuse the Repubs of doing, they will do, except 10X worse.

People probably never gave much forethought to this. THey may have considered, intellectually, that Dems would spend more. They may have considered that Republicans cooperating with Dems would only help the Dems spend more in the future. But I think we are all surprised at the reality.

If the Soviets had not fallen, they would have used just such an economic crisis in America.
