    I feel so much more confident now. In fact I think I'll go ahead and spend $3,000 on thingamajigs in anticipation of getting the FREE $3,000 Odumbo has just promised me.

    Now I have only to decide what color(s) I want.
  3. So where's the context of that statement? I mean the beginning of the speech. What is he talking about ? It's almost as if there was selective editing here to fit an agenda and take things out of context. I hate that dishonest shit. You can stuff your video snippet where the sun does not shine.

    Then you must really hate the liberal democrats.

    I think that is called buying votes. Why not just call for the repeal of the income tax. (oh, I forgot, 50% don't pay income tax anyway)

    Well said.

    Even some of our resident righties have said that maybe, if government is going to do this stimulus thingy, it should just cut a check for every citizen. Personally I'd like to see some investment grade spending, say on infrastructure, but the principle is the same: enable effective demand.

    No, what we said was "it would have been better to cut a $25000 check (stimulus total divided by citizen) than to spend it on worthless projects with no payback." But no one that calls themselves a conservative wanted either.
  8. That thing-a-ma-jig for a furnance is usually a thermocouple. Costs about 50 bucks, but a deal from the government for 3 grand.:eek:
