Breakfast Scramble: If Obama Only Had a Plan

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble

The Obama recovery plan, spend money, and imagine jobs, from Karin McQuillan, American Thinker [1]:

Obama tells us his stimulus plan was a brilliant success. Yes, it plunged us into economy-destroying debt and deficit.  The alternative would have been worse, we are told.  All three of my friends and family in financial straits are loyal Democrats, and they believe him.  “Obama created 2.5 million jobs,” my underemployed friend tells me. “Without his policies, it would have been much worse.”

“What are the jobs?” I asked him. Neither one of us had a clue.

We sat down together at the internet and did a Google search, ‘stimulus job creation.’

We found out where [2] the number 2.5 million jobs’ created or saved’ comes from.  It comes from a formula [3].  The formula comes from a theory.  The formula says that for every dollar the government spends, 1.5 dollars’ worth of economic activity is generated, and presto, jobs come out.  The economic geniuses working for Obama want us to believe that by definition, since they spent almost a trillion dollars in ‘stimulus’, they automatically created 2.4 million jobs.  This is called the multiplier effect.

I suggest that better name for the Obami’s  multiplier effect would be bovine scatology, or simply  BS.

The ‘Pubs have a plan, highlights, from Investors Business Daily [4]:

– Delaying air pollution rules for utilities, preventing electricity price increases of as much as 24%.

– Stopping new EPA emission rules for boilers, cement and coal, possibly saving hundreds of thousands of jobs.

– Legislatively keeping the National Labor Relations Board from regulating the relocation of employers — a response to Boeing’s wish to build its 787 Dreamliner in the right-to-work state of South Carolina.

If you don’t donate to Obama re-election campaign, he does not care about your job

Is Bono the new euphemism for stupid? From a confused People Magazine [5]:

Cher has spoken before of her admiration for her son Chaz and his courage. Now, she’s leaping to his defense after critics have questioned his inclusion on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars.

Chaz Bono is female. She was born a female and she will die a female.    You would think her mother ought to know that.
