Watching Fox News on 2-02-09, approx. 8:30 a.m.; Obama is on a news clip talking with NBC News (Matt Liar - spelling of last name probably wrong) and says that there are no earmarks in the $821,000,000,000.00 Stimulus Bill. Either he does not know what an earmark is, deliberately misleading the American people, or some denying the obvious for some other reason; this is insulting to the American people. This Bill is filled with earmarks and seems like politics as usual. BT-100dc

Its full of social programs. Vote getters I say. We have made it to the point where there are more on the take than on the give. Hang on to you wallet as they are going to be grabbing at it every day. Its what they live for.

It is so frustrating to see once again they are trying to ram something down our throats that is full of pork. I wish the republicans would point out to all very clearly how much of this is pork and challenge the dems to justify why the dems are trying to push so much crap onto the American public. This should be illegal.
frustrated!

"The Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (”LCCR”) is a far left interest group.

The group opposed conservative judges. The group agitates for card check. The group is in favor of the Fairness Doctrine. It is chiefly an agitator for affirmative action programs and tries to pressure banks into giving high risk loans like those that caused the housing crisis. If you oppose them, they label you a racist.

LCCR operates like ACORN. And the Senate Democrats are about to give the $90 million of your money.

Under the cover of the digital television conversion delay, the Senate Democrats want to give the LCCR $90 million.

On page 38 of the Senate version of the stimulus, under the section “Digital-to-Analog Converter Program”, the Senate carves out “$90,000,000.00 . . . for education and out-reach, including grants to organizations for programs to educate vulnerable populations, including senior citizens, minority communities, people with disabilities, low-income individuals, and people living in rural areas, about the transition.”

Sounds innocuous. Here’s the catch:

The program is managed by the Department of Commerce. The program is managed by the Department of Commerce. And the Department of Commerce gave access to the DTV education money to only two groups exclusively: the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (N4A) and the LCCR’s Education Fund.: the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (N4A) and the LCCR’s Education Fund.

Here’s where it gets funny. Each group is now only getting about $2 million.

The Senate believes it needs to give $90 million more — and only these organizations will be able to get their hands on the money. Only these two groups — one group that helps senior citizens and one group whose members were Democrat foot soldiers in 2008 and, with the “administrative costs” they’ll be able to take in overhead, will be well funded for coming elections."

At this point the air is leaking out of Osama's balloon and he is starting to be discovered for the fraud that he is. Some people are stupider than others and it will take a while for the Koolaid to wear off. Hopfullly not too late. Bob
