Obama had an Economic Plan, formed by the best Economists we have, to get this Country back on it's feet. But, because of the Teapublican-controlled Congress opposing EVERYTHING he's tried to do, he's had to change almost all of it , just to get SOME of it passed by Congress!
If you People hadn't voted in that bunch of Racist Idiots that know NOTHING, we'd probably have been been well on our way to getting past this Bush/Cheney catastrophy, by now! Instead that same bunch of Idiots are about to throw right back into the mess that Obama inherited over four years ago. YOU'RE ALL NUTS!

You say it doesn't work...I say it does, and more so since we have become a consumer driven economy. It is hard to "consume" something when you are broke. Place money in the hands of those with none and they will spend it. That spending stimulates the economy, creating more demand and more jobs..pull money out of the economy and....well, it is awfully hard to spend what you do not have.
In my opinion, that stimulis SHOULD have been about three times larger with NO tax cuts involved. Instead there should have been direct hiring of the unemployed by the government...a WPA style jobs program that put people to work immediately. You can see what austerity is doing to Europe, and that is STILL the road some would take this country down.

Why don't all of you like-minded Nuts that love your Fox Fake News and your Conspiracy Websites so much, just move to GA., or Texas, secede from the Union and do whatever you want and stop screwing everything up for all the rest of us. GOOD RIDDANCE, you won't be missed and I, for one , would be glad to get rid of you!

Ever eat a chicken or an egg "Hey" ? Compared to chickens the average beef cow has it made. There are "free range" chickens and eggs available in the market for about four times the cost of conventionally raised product...(and I am unsure who checks to be sure they really are "free range") but the average consumer can't afford to eat many of those on a $10.00 an hour job.

Not quite 4 times. It's mostly double, but according to momma gumint, yer not supposed to be eatin' too much meat in the first place. And fish are gonna kill you with mercury.
Here's one not far from me:
And most people who make only $10 per hour get food stamps. Unfortunately, small farms don't take them. But that's OK. from what I've observed, most of the food purchased with food stamps fall into the frozen pizza, hot pockets, and chips category.

Yes I buy organic chicken.My daughter Raises "freerange" chickens
and they all have names and come and sit on your lap if you like.
I like Lindsey she is darling.
I have to buy organic milk and butter or I get sick??????????The butter breaks my throat out.
I will bet Lindsey that I am just the canary in the mine and only the begining of the disasters that we are in for with all of this crap that's going on.
Oh you'd be suprised how many put back their garbage eggs when I give them the skinny on the factory farm filth.
Yep thanks to big mouth here them free range eggs ar flying off the shelf.
I've called some of these companies and told them what I think of their disgusting ways.
I get hung up on a lot but I don't give a damn.

All the more reason to raise the Minimum Wage! Raising taxes wouldn't hurt so badly if the Ordinary Person made more money, like they used to before you Greedy Teapublicans started trying to starve everybody to death, except the Wealthiest!

Twenty dollars for a whole chicken...twelve dollars for two split chicken breasts....and I GUARANTEE you these folks are not getting rich....but how many regular working folks could afford those prices ? This is THE issue with grass fed meat. The farmer can not get the gain in pounds needed to compete with conventional farming methods so the price is prohibitive. There are very few consumers that could afford to eat this way.

Well here's what the conspiracy nuts have to add to the conversation.
" A Primer on the Real Global Geopolitical Battle".
The Iraq war was really about oil according to Greenspan,McCain,Bush,and Sarah you betcha Palin.
Cheney made Iraqs oil fields a natonial security priorty before 9/11.
Sunday Herald reports,Five months before Sept.11 the Us advocated using force to secure control of it's oil.
Afghanistan war was planned before 9/11.

Recent exploration of rare volcanic rocks in the rugged, dangerous desert of southern Afghanistan has identified world-class concentrations of rare earth elements, the prized group of raw materials that are essential in the manufacture of many modern technologies, from electric cars to solar panels. So far, geologists say, they have mapped one million metric tons of these critical elements, which include lanthanum, cerium and neodymium.
That's enough to supply the world's rare earth needs for 10 years based on current consumption, points out Robert Tucker, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientist who is the lead author on a report released on September 14. And from clues his team gathered during three high-security reconnaissance missions to the site, he suspects the deposit is actually much larger.
"I fully expect that our estimates are conservative," Tucker told Scientific American. "With more time, and with more people doing proper exploration, it could become a major, major discovery."
The USGS's exploration time has been strictly limited due to the deposit's location in the most dangerous part of the country, near the southern border with Pakistan. The geologists were delivered to the site in Black Hawk helicopters, and armed soldiers watched over them as they scoured the ground for clues.

Gadget Makers Feel Pinch of Soaring Rare Earth Prices
May 03 2011 02:35 PM ET
Your new smartphone or laptop may not jump in price just yet, but the manufacturers have seen soaring prices for the rare earth minerals used in such gadgets.
Rising demand for the minerals has outpaced supply and led to a doubling in price over the past four months, according to the New York Times. The dominant supplier, China, has also begun cutting back on rare earth exports to the rest of the world and raising export taxes as it focuses on feeding its own industry demands.
Such price increases probably won't hit consumers, because gadgets such as iPhones or computers use tiny amounts of rare earth minerals. But experts have warned that the high prices and short supply could slow the pace of innovation in developing new technologies that use such minerals.
[See INFOGRAPHIC: Energy-Critical Elements to Watch]
One consumer product that may also see related price increases is Toyota's Prius hybrid electric car, which uses 2.2 pounds of the magnetic material known as neodymium. But consumer demand, economic conditions and production issues in the wake of Japan's earthquake and tsunami have played the big roles in recent Prius price hikes, the New York Times reports.
The doubling in rare earth prices over the past four months comes on top of a fourfold price increase in 2010 – and the pressure won't lift anytime soon. Rare earth mining companies in the U.S. and elsewhere have begun reopening old mines and investigating new deposits, but many new mines around the world won't start up until 2014.
Recycling the minerals in old gadgets may help meet some of the demand, but the process remains both complicated and expensive. Huge corporations such as General Electric and Toyota have also begun looking for substitutes that could replace rare earth minerals.
For now, China controls 97 percent of current rare earth production because it alone has the expensive facilities needed to process the minerals. The country used that position as political leverage by halting rare earth mineral shipments to Japan during a territorial dispute last fall, the New York Times said.

I've tried to tell you People since the very beginning that the Iraq War was all about getting control of their Oil. That's an informed opinion from watching and reading everything that I could find since the Iraq War started. And I don't just mean on the Internet, which is not very reliable, unless you choose the Source very carefully. It was wisely discussed during the Iraq War, but it's been hushed up Bush/Cheney left Office...that acquiring the exclusive Oil Rights was the main objective and the War was extended , when the Iraqi Parliment would not give the Rights, exclusively, to the Big U.S. Oil Companies. Instead, they finally gave equal Rights to several of the Nations of the World.
BTW, if you don't remember me posting it numerous times, Iraq sits on the second highest Oil Reserves in the World, second only to Saudia Arabia.
As for Afghanistan being pre-planned before 9/11, I doubt that, simply because I don't know of anything they had that we would want besides Bin Laden, after he master-minded 9/11.

What's the point? you raise the minimum wage, and business responds to the added costs by raising prices and/or laying off workers. It's a Catch-22.
