The Real Change In the Air

Barack Obama, he fixed our economy right up, yessiree:

Across the country, unemployment has reached its highest level since the Great Depression, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data show. In June, the male rate was 10 percent and the female rate was 7.6 percent.

We are past the point where the President can blame his predecessor for the present crisis. All the American people hear out of the Administration is how many jobs the President has "created or saved." The numbers tell us that the President has either been given over to strong delusion, or he is flatly lying to the people of this country. The polls tell us that the public isn't buying the Administration's line of bull.

The truth of the matter is that government intervention, especially of the kind that the President has advocated will not save any jobs, and if any are created, they will only be temporary. The Great Depression did teach us one important economic lesson, and that is that for all of the efforts of the federal government, it was no amount of federal dollars that brought the unemployment rate down, but a war that was ten years in the making. Unlike in the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, when many Americans were given temporary busy work and the news cycle was controlled by the inability to disseminate information widely and quickly as we can today, Americans can not only see that many of their neighbors are still down on their luck, but that the whole country is in a funk and the President's talk about the bad times ending is just worthless chatter for Middle America.

The real question for the Administration is the obvious one: Where's the Beef? The President's stimulus was supposed to at least give some indication by now of the situation improving for people on the ground, not just in a few places (suspiciously) where the vote for the President was rather high. The President and his staunchest allies (and those in the Leftist blogosphere who traffic in delusion and alternate reality) are the only people left in this country who believe that Barack Obama's plan for this country amounts to anything more than a pile of rotten beans. While we move deeper into Depression, the President busies himself with the non-existent jobs he has created and saved and with so-called healh care plans that are going to cost those few Americans that will be left with any money at all when the President is finished what is left of their livlihoods.

Change is in the air alright, and that change will likely involve a new Congressional composition after next year's election to act as an appropriate check on the power of the deluded buffoon at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

Can you as a Jefferson Countian wiegh in on the situation with your own Representative? your thoughts would be much appreciated!

Around the State Capitol it is common knowledge that, about 14 years ago, married man Frank Niceley had an extra-marital affair with a married woman in Sevier County. That affair produced a child, who is now a teenager.

That illicit pregnancy exposed the affair and led to a divorce for the woman. She had the child though and it goes by her last name.

Rep. Niceley has been known to say around the Capitol that: "My wife [Cindy] knew she married a stud when she picked me and that I would be hard to keep in the corral."

Now, in a previous column on Sen. Paul Stanley, you write: "When a person demonstrates such a glaring lack of mental capacity, they are not fit for public office."

The question for you: Does the same apply to your buddy Frank?!

If not, why not?!

Slowly and surely, the policies of the Obama Administration are reversing the disasterous policies of the Bush Administration. Only a few months ago you were screaming that the Dow Jones was reacting to Obama's policies, now the Dow is continuing to climb. If you understood economics at all, you'd know that employment is a lagging indicator - because you are an idiot, I'll explain that term to you. A "lagging indicator" is a statistic that thens to be one of the last statistics that improves in a set of economic indicators. Before employers start hiring again, there has to be a trend of continuing growth to ensure a need for new employees - thus, employment numbers will be one of the last numbers to rise in response to an improving economy.

Because you generally tend to be very uneducated about these matters, I'll forgive you for your ignorance on this subject, but for the 3 people that read this blog, please shut the fuck up and talk about something you understand. Go back to talking about the Catholic church and their ass-raping priests.
