Maybe the American people are right?
I was talking to Jack Conway, the Senate candidate from Kentucky, and he said that the biggest issues from constituents on the campaign trail are spending and jobs. I asked if he explains that the two are contradictory, and he explained that people don’t see it that way, that they’ve concluded that more public spending will not create jobs but just go to the banks on Wall Street. I don’t know if the Administration understands how pernicious this game they’re playing is. It could last for a generation.
Well, that's what happened in my state. The stimulus money is going to a handful of big corporate energy projects that will create a few hundred jobs at incredible costs. But weatherization, which is both green and would protect us from oil speculators in the heating season, would create thousands of jobs. But that's not where the money is going. So why should I hand over my money so these guys can Fuck me with it?
This program is not just a terrible deal for struggles homeowners – it’s a terrible confirmation of government not working. It needs to stop and those responsible need to be fired, before it consumes the entire progressive project in its wake.
Mission accomplished. Don't progressives -- not career "progressives," but the real ones -- understand, that for The Big O, consuming the entire progressive project is full of win?
