    Quote Of The Day

    ''For all our troubles, midterm finds this Administration and this country entering a season of hope. We inherited a mess, we didn't run away from it and now we're turning it around ... My biggest regret is that because the accumulated damages piled up so high for so long, putting America's house in order has been a tough and painful task ... We've got to prove that what we said about it is true - it'll work,'' - Barack Obama November 2010, Ronald Reagan January 1983.
    ***************

    Happy Election Day, y'all....

    And the results of the "season of hope" are likely to be the same this time around:

    YearInflation Rate
    (percent)
    Unemployment
    Rate (percent)
    19736.24.8
    197411.05.5
    19759.18.3
    19765.87.6
    19776.56.9
    19787.76.0
    197911.35.8
    198013.57.0

    The facts back up Reagan's quote. The difference is that by the end of Reagan's second term the economy was robust. Unemployment was under control and interest rates were low. Do you think Cap and Trade will do that for the economy once Obama rams it through? "Under my plan electric rates will necessarily skyrocket". Barrack Hussein Obama

    Jobs lost from the "Cap" will be more than made up in the "trade".  It's Job neutral.

    As Fractals/HansonBrother would say "Bwaaaa Haaaaa Haaaaaa".

    In her remarks bringing the debate over the climate bill to a close, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California urged her colleagues to vote in favor of the cap and trade bill, saying the measure was about four things: "jobs, jobs, jobs, and jobs."

    She was right—the House-passed version of cap and trade is all about jobs: jobs lost, jobs never created, jobs sent overseas, and, unbelievably, jobs people will be paid for doing long after they cease to exist.

    According to Friday's www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/jul/03/energy-job-losers-could-get-windfall/" target="_new">Washington Times, the legislation includes language that provides, should it become law, that people who lose their jobs because of it "could get a weekly paycheck for up to three years, subsidies to find new work and other generous benefits—courtesy of Uncle Sam."

    How generous are these benefits? Well, according to the Times, "Adversely affected employees

    in oil, coal and other fossil-fuel sector jobs would qualify for a weekly check worth 70 percent of their current salary for up to three years. In addition, they would get $1,500 for job-search assistance and $1,500 for moving expenses from the bill's 'climate change worker adjustment assistance' program, which is expected to cost $4.2 billion from 2011 to 2019."
