It has been a while since GorT took a shot at the whole Stimulus funding and Joe Biden’s favorite “number” on the internet: recovery.gov. The ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) requires the Chairperson of the Council of …Continue reading →
Let me start by presenting two facts: 1. President Obama showcased one of the federally funded job training programs that he supports. The federal government funds these programs with $18B per year. At Lorain County Community College in Ohio, the …Continue reading →
Obama! Obama, Obama bo Bama Bonana fanna fo F’bama Fee fy mo M’bama, Obama! So things aren’t going so well for the current administration: the Fast and Furious mess, gas prices climbing, etc. etc. So what does a top-notch leader …Continue reading →
In this installment, GorT looks a bit more broadly than his local democrat-run county and state. This time, we’ll turn and look at the conundrum facing liberals with regards to “green” energy, jobs and (insert trumpet fare here), the environment. …Continue reading →
A failing or flailing economy is a powerful thing for a candidate to use against an incumbent opponent. Remember, “It’s the Economy, Stupid” ? Or jump back just a few years and look at the “Hope and Change” campaign and …Continue reading →
Courtesy of an excellent post over at The PJ Tatler by Bryan Preston who teased out the following from a Washington Times article. Click over to read the whole thing, but here are some of the highlights: Hollywood director Robert …Continue reading →
GorT Replicant #1 had an assignment from school to watch the President’s speech last night and describe what his plan was. After GorT stopped laughing, I dutifully sat down and watched the speech with her and Mrs. GorT. If you …Continue reading →
So people are starting to look at the economy and wonder if the Stimulus (American Recovery & Reinvestment Act) actually helped. Keep in mind that President Obama and VP Biden and others still, to varying degrees, champion the successes of …Continue reading →
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mock this a bit: President Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness met today in Durham, NC at Cree Inc., a company that manufactures energy-efficient LED lighting. One of the Council’s recommendations to President Obama …Continue reading →
I saw on the interwebs a blog posting entitled “Eight False Things the Public ‘Knows’ Before Election Day”. It is hosted on a liberal leaning site and the bent can clearly be seen. I thought, for fun, I’d do a …Continue reading →
Amusing, but it stems from what was always a somewhat ugly side of this whole silly ‘shovel-ready’ meme. Basically, what ‘shovel-ready’ was always about was upper-middle-class lefties openly fantasizing about putting armies of peasants to work doing things that…upper-middle-class lefties …Continue reading →
The GOP is tracking where the stupid Stimulus Signs are being posted. They’ve estimated that $192 Million has been spent on these signs to date. Check out the site – if you see one that isn’t listed, send it in. …Continue reading →
Let’s frame this correctly – President Obama, VP Biden and the Democrats in Congress have continued to tout the successes of the Stimulus Bill. Yesterday we get the following: The Los Angeles City Controller said on Thursday the city’s use …Continue reading →
The offices of Sens. Coburn & McCain have put out an entertaining pamphlet called Summertime Blues which lists 100 stimulus projects that seem a bit superfluous. Like: “Town Replaces New Sidewalks With Newer Sidewalks That Lead to Ditch.” Check it …Continue reading →
The first clip is a bit long at 9 minutes and if you can’t stomach the whole thing, I’d recommend watching the first 2-3 minutes and then the last minute. What a clown. The second clip is from the POTUS …Continue reading →
Two overarching reasons explain the failure of Obamanomics. First, administration economists and their outside supporters neglected the longer-term costs and consequences of their actions. Second, the administration and Congress have through their deeds and words heightened uncertainty about the economic …Continue reading →
I really dig maps. I do geospatial work as part of my job and I love a variety of maps on a personal level. I was interested to come across this “mashup”. Now, I agree with the original author that …Continue reading →
We’ve told you all this before – if ANYONE reading this site believes this administration’s claims about the Recovery Act (Stimulus bill) then please email me so I can set you straight. I’ve clipped the beginning of this article from …Continue reading →
So while the top 1% is covering the taxes for us (note that the top 1% only earn 22.8% of the Adjusted Gross Income for the country, while they pay 40.4% of the taxes – the top 1% are those …Continue reading →
It’s a wonder why people even read the newspapers anymore. You would think that some of the intrepid jornalism majors would have aspired to be investigative reporters. We’ve seen the complete ignorance of hallowed journalism mainstays like the NY Times …Continue reading →
Democrats have longer argued against the tax cuts to empower wealth creation labeling it “voodoo economics” and “trickle down” economics. Well, as the unemployment rate crossed 10.2% (a point which POTUS Obama said it would not cross with these programs …Continue reading →
GorT has been suffering through nightmare commutes the last two days. My 20-25 mile commute generally takes about an hour in the evenings. It took two and a half hours tonight. For those not in the Metro DC area, you …Continue reading →
The White House and democrats are poised to start crowing about the success of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009 with data showing 650,000 jobs “created or saved”. This number represents about $150 billion of the $339 billion …Continue reading →
Biz Mike-G stays on fire, ripping the Administration’s animus against the military. Instead, the Obama administration is slashing defense spending and cutting programs that employ tens of thousands of highly-skilled (and often union) workers. The administration drew a line in …Continue reading →
I really need a job where I can claim to be something and then not take the time to actually learn the terminology or underpinnings of the actual work…and succeed! But maybe it’s the honest Eagle Scout in me that …Continue reading →
For a refresher read our posts here, here and here. Now, I’m not a X-Files conspiracy theorist, but taken these in concert with the White House pushing this language into the Giant Technicolor Stimulus Bill which got reduced has me …Continue reading →
Sen (Dr.) Coburn (R-OK) is fighting the good fight. I caught up on my newspaper reading this morning and caught his excellent OpEd in the Wall Street Journal. Let me highlight a few of the salient points: less than 10% …Continue reading →
