Playing with public funds to buy Chrysler and and General Motors for the benefit of the UAW and the votes they will bring. It would be cheaper to pay each UAW member 300,000 each and tell them to retire. We are going to be on the hook for years to come pouring money into failed companies attempting to keep them alive at taxpayers expense and giving them an unfair competetive advantage over the only solvent american auto company, Ford. I would love to sit in the conference room when the UAW bargains with itself over wages and benefits. Under the government plans the UAW will be a 40percent owner of GM , the government a 50 percent owner and the taxpayer a never ending source of bailout funds for these elephantine monstrosities.

legal vote buying
I just received a letter from my estimable congressmen . It informed me that as a social security recipient I would be paid an additional 250 dollars, and that this largesse came from the president and congress's stimulus plan. I understand similar bribes are going to other groups including the largest to people who pay no taxes. Politicians from all over are applauding this plans originality. Bribing voters with their own money is a great political step forward almost eclipsing bribing voters with other peoples money.

inconvienent truth ignored by media
If you assume an ostrich position and bury your head in the ice perhaps the fact the the Antarctic ice cap is growing might not be as reportable as the chicken little claims that we are going to be inundated by rising seas. The fevered reporting of some ice shelf calving in the western Antarctic is in sharp contrast to the ignored report by the British Antarctic Survey based on work by the Antarctic cooperative survey that the Eastern ice area which is four times larger than the Western is growing and denser than it has been in decades. For the sea level to rise appreciably there would have to be extreme melting of the Antarctic ice cap.This is not occuring. Why has A P and the general media ignored this story. I guess they don't want to rain on the U N , Al Gore and his sycophantic congressional and administratiion followers. It is deplorable that psuedo-science is the basis for much of our political leaders work.

welcome to utopia
The congress is nationalizing banks. The congress is nationalizing insurance companies.The congress is nationalizing health care. The congress is considering nationalizing newspapers. The EPA is going to control the emission of carbon dioxide. The congress is increasing the use of ethanol even though it is scientificaly condemned .The administration rejoices. We are being dragged into the third world where bloated bureaucrats replace bloated capitalists. When a government controls banks,insurance, health, education , factories, and newspapers it will result in tyranny. I'm afraid even the ACLU will be muzzled unless they become handmaidens to this change.
