and you are using false logic to claim for example that a stimulus payment of ten million dollars to rebuild a road by ten men,means that the individual workers got one million dollars each.
you forget the value of the rebuilding of the road.

but while your at it.
the stimulus contained tax cuts for businesses.
if it is such a expensive failure the right wing should be clamoring for the removal of the tax cuts as they did not work.
so which is it a failure or a success?
Republican Stimulus Hypocrisy Should Enrage Every Struggling American
When assessing which human characteristic is more disgusting, besides pedophilia and murder, hypocrisy and lying usually rank near the top of the list for most people. In fact, in the Christian bible, Jesus Christ condemned liars and hypocrites (Mt 24:51, 15:7) that he claimed were destined for eternal damnation, so one would expect so-called conservative Christian Republicans to avoid hypocrisy and lying to save their souls and maintain a semblance of integrity. For the past three years, Republicans have been fierce opponents of using government funds to stimulate the economy and create jobs as a matter of course, and they have, without exception, denounced President Obama’s stimulus they claim “doesn’t work, and didn’t work” to create jobs or stimulate the economy. Every time a Republican makes that assertion, they prove themselves to be liars and hypocrites, and John McCain and Paul Ryan provide the evidence to prove it.
The presumptive Republican vice-presidential nominee has been one of the harshest critics of using federal money to stimulate the economy, and last week in this column it was reported that although Ryan railed and voted against the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (stimulus), he begged the energy department in four separate letters for tens-of-millions of dollars to, as he put it,“create new jobs over the 3 year grant period and the subsequent 3 years, and help stimulate the economy” in Wisconsin. Now, one instance of condemning and voting against an economic stimulus and then begging for money is reason enough to impugn Ryan as a hypocrite, but just nine years ago, Ryan openly advocated for a third stimulus package during the Bush administration.
In the early 2000s, George W. Bush argued for more stimulus to boost a slow economy, and instead of condemning Bush’s request as a “monstrosity,”“wasteful spending,” and something he “opposed because it doesn’t work, it didn’t work,” Ryan said,“What we’re trying to accomplish today with the passage of this third stimulus package is to create jobs and help the unemployed.” Mr. Ryan also told an MSNBC interviewer that “What we’re trying to accomplish is to pass the kinds of legislation that when they’ve passed in the past have grown the economy and gotten people back to work.” It is curious that Ryan’s economic analysis was entirely different in 2002 when his argument was,“We’ve got to get the engine of economic growth growing again because we now know, because of recession, we don’t have the revenues that we wanted, we don’t have the revenues we need, to fix Medicare, to fix Social Security, to fix these issues. We’ve got to get Americans back to work. Then the surpluses come back, then the jobs come back. That is the constructive answer we’re trying to accomplish here on, yes, a bipartisan basis. I urge members to drop the demagoguery and to pass this bill to help us work together to get the American people back to work and help those people who’ve lost their jobs.” The Bush stimulus passed, included a jobless benefit extension, and resulted in checks going out to millions of Americans in 2002.

Oops!
CDC Study Contradicts Obama On Gun Violence
by Lonely Conservative
• August 21, 2013
You probably didn’t hear about the results of a CDC study on gun violence ordered by the Obama administration to bolster its position on gun control.
That’s because it didn't bolster Obama’s position.
So it was quietly filed away.
Investor’s Business Daily dug it up, but you probably won’t hear about it on the evening news or the front page of the New York Times.
http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/0821...
..........
obummer, a five year failure
another hack article that forgets some things

"the estimated number of defensive uses of guns ranges "from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year"

yet the CDC research agenda that those numbers come from extrapolation of 19 surveys.
from 2001.
hardly current
the research agenda merely lists the questions.
by no means is it a finished report.

http://www.nap.edu/openbook.php...

so your hack author who is not listed by name in the article can be a shill working for the NRA.

the research will take 3 to 5 yrs.

so no report is being hidden by anyone.

"He told management that it was an entertainment website selling videos of concerts and lectures," the report said. "He called it simply WOH, never saying that WOH stood for War on the Horizon."

" I spoke with neo-Nazis J.T. Ready and "Vito Lombardi," both of whom were throwing up the sieg heil sign as they verbally attacked the marchers passing by on Durango Street. They told me that Joe had stopped by earlier and spoken with each of them. Ready said Arpaio called him by his initials "J.T.," and Lombardi bragged of getting a photo with the sheriff. "

"If our eyes are to be believed, why is a top law enforcement official giving the time of day to a bunch of neo-Nazis, much less photo ops and info on protesters? Not that Joe hasn't hobnobbed with goosesteppers before. Back in 2008, Sheriff Joe spoke before a crowd of United for a Sovereign America members. U.S.A. has allowed neo-Nazis to join its group, and on the evening Joe spoke, old-time Arizona neo-Nazi Elton Hall was present, cheering him on.

Is Arpaio so desperate for attention and support that he needs Hitler-worshippers in his camp? When I challenged Joe on meeting with U.S.A. back in 2008, he blustered that he talks to "everybody." I got the same response from his top flack Lisa Allen. Seems there's no shame in their game. Even when it comes to Arpaio rubbing shoulders with swastika-lovers."

so why would the right wing adore a sheriff who pals around with neo-nazis?

Marine Corps Colonel: Homeland Security Building “Domestic Army”
Fallujah veteran says government is afraid of its own citizens
August 15, 2013
A former Marine Corps Colonel who was stationed in Fallujah and trained Iraqi soldiers warns that the Department of Homeland Security is working with law enforcement to build a “domestic army,” because the federal government is afraid of its own citizens.
The comments by the Colonel Peter Martino were made during public testimony at a Concord City Council meeting on Tuesday. The meeting concerned a decision on whether to accept a $260,000 Homeland Security grant on behalf of the Central New Hampshire Special Operations Unit to purchase a BearCat armored vehicle.
The purchase of the vehicle has been surrounded by controversy after the city’s Police Chief wrote in an application filing to the DHS that the vehicle was needed to deal with the “threat” posed by libertarians, sovereign citizen adherents, and Occupy activists in the region.
Referencing signs in the crowd which read “More Mayberry, Less Fallujah,” the Colonel spoke of how he didn’t even have armored vehicles when he was stationed in Fallujah.
http://www.infowars.com/marine-corps-colonel-...
and you forgot

http://m.motherjones.com/politics/2013/08/occ...

"While the sovereign citizens movement has a history of racism and violence, Police Chief John Duval now says that he doesn't actually believe the Free State Project or Occupy New Hampshire are domestic terror threats. "I wish I would have worded things different in retrospect," he says. "I understand why their eyebrows are raised about that." He chalks up the wording to the limitations of writing a detailed proposal in only three pages and says it was meant to refer to the "unpredictable nature of unpredictable people who attach themselves to otherwise lawful situations."

for example

http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2013/aug/22/m...

some of the sovereign citizen lunatic ideas

http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/intelli...

and
"Duval says his department needs the vehicle to replace a 1981 Air Force Peacekeeper that's fallen into disrepair. Concord's population is just over 40,000, but as a capital city in the state that hosts the first-in-the-nation presidential primaries, Duval doesn't want to rule out the possibility of an attack like the Boston Marathon bombing."

"Kim Murdoch, president of the nonprofit Concord Public Safety Foundation, urged the council to accept the grant.

“The acquisition of this asset will not transform the Concord Police Department into a military organization any more than the surplus Air Force Peacekeeper armored vehicle did a decade ago,” she said.“The Peacekeeper is now 32 years old and in need of replacement.”

http://www.concordmonitor.com/home/8037268-95...

so the grant would replace their existing armored vehicle with a new one and libertarians got their panties in a wad based on the wording of the grant application.
they will get over it

Donald Trump the teabagger with a red skunk on his head:

More more on the tea bagger scum


MICHAEL GORMLEY 3 hours ago .ALBANY, N.Y.(AP)— New York's attorney general sued Donald Trump for $40 million Saturday, saying the real estate mogul helped run a phony "Trump University" that promised to make students rich but instead steered them into expensive and mostly useless seminars, and even failed to deliver promised apprenticeships.

American Legion suspects it was targeted by IRS
August 24, 2013
The American Legion is raising concerns about also being a victim of IRS targeting, prompting a Republican senator to demand answers from the agency.
The veterans’ service group says it recently learned about a so-called IRS “audit manual” that requires American Legion posts to keep dates of service and member records or perhaps face a $1,000-a-day fine, according to The Daily Caller.
The concerns follow revelations this spring that the IRS flagged Tea Party groups for additional auditing when they were seeking tax-exempt status from 2010 to 2012.
The additional American Legion auditing appears to be the jurisdiction of the IRS’s Exempt Organizations Division, which oversaw the Tea Party flagging under Director Lois Lerner, who is now on paid administrative leave after invoking her Fifth Amendment rights during a congressional hearing on the issue.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/08/24/am...
more right wing garbage as membership requirements were put in place 9/1/2005

"A veterans’ post or organization must meet the following requirements to be exempt under IRC §501(c)(19):

It must be organized in the United States or any of its possessions.

At least 75% of the organization's members are present or former members of the United States Armed Forces (veterans);

Of the remaining 25%, substantially all (90%) must be cadets who are students in a college or university R.O.T.C. program or at an Armed Services academy, or spouses, widows, widowers, ancestors, or lineal descendants of veterans or cadets; and

No more than 2.5% of the total membership may consist of individuals who are not veterans, cadets, spouses, widows, widowers, ancestors, or lineal descendants of veterans or cadets."

so if they want the tax exemption they have to show the veterans group is really mainly veterans.
that is the only change from 2005
