HOPE In Sights Unseen........ both Chicago and Illinois

I can understand all of the t-shirts and buttons in the waiting room of the poor urban hospital that I visited the other day. I don't understand why the "black bourgeoisie" make such heavy use of propagandist imagery.

After January 20, 2009 - Such A Game Where The President Is Phyically Attacked Will Be Attacked

Warnging From The Conspiracy Theorists: - Prepare For Martial Law.....After Obama

You were warned Obamaganists!!!

From The Real News Network:
My People -

For those of you who are up on your history, the following report will not be "blockbusting" news....As with all history.....It's happened before. Wee, who be politically astute and steeped in Knowledge, know that the wheels on the bus go round and round, as history spins in an infinite loop. The frustration comes from the fact that the masses never learn the lessons from yesteryear - or even yesterDAY - because the average mortal has the attention span of a gnat. Such is reality.
Consequently....heeeeerrrrrreeeee wee go again!

The last time this went down was around 1875. So, altho it's been awhile, this is nothing new.....(there IS no such thing - as 'new' - when it comes to what people do) The events of the late 1870's brought Posse Comitatus into existence because the U.S. military, which was called upon to quell widespread rebellion throughout the major cities, had virtually laid waste to entire towns, killing hundreds of civilians through the use of firebombing. And to be sure that art does indeed imitate life, this event was depicted in the movie, "Gangs of New York", several years ago....check it out during your next movie night. It just so happens, that one of my most favorite lines in movie history comes from that particular film......
"The good thing about the poor is, that you can always hire one half of the poor to kill the other half"

Quite unfortunately, that is very true. And the same Powers-That-Be in place NOW, are the same Powers-That-Be back THEN, and they fully understand human behavior.
It ain't rocket-science.

Like all other animals in the realm of creation, the human species, are creatures of habit. The ONLY thing that makes US different, is Free Will.

However, what will make THIS event one with an interesting twist, is that, this time, it will happen under the leadership of "democrats', even more, the leadership of a so-called, "Black President". A mass destruction and oppression - brought about by the very individuals that the masses yielded their power to bring about...."CHANGE".

To call THAT an 'interesting twist', is truly, putting it mildly.......Like I said. Nothing 'new'. But interesting all the same....Even tho the destruction of a people, led by a black man, but written, produced, and directed by white men, is itself, very old script.

"The wheels on the bus go round and round"........Full circle.....

I already know how this is gonna play out.....I've seen this 'movie' a thousand times....Wee-folks shall be first to feel the pain. Nonetheless, it will be interesting to eat popcorn and watch, as ameriKKKa comes Full Circle.....turning it's voracious appetite inward, as it inevitably eats itself.....starting with its' young.

Everyone who has been paying attention has seen this movie and will know how to respond accordingly.....

.......the rest of ya'll are in fo some shit!

U.S. Military Preparing for Domestic Disturbances

Tuesday, December 23, 2008 1:14 PM

By: Jim Meyers
A new report from the U.S. Army War College discusses the use of American troops to quell civil unrest brought about by a worsening economic crisis.

The report from the War College’s Strategic Studies Institute warns that the U.S. military must prepare for a “violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States” that could be provoked by “unforeseen economic collapse” or “loss of functioning political and legal order.”

Entitled “Known Unknowns: Unconventional ‘Strategic Shocks’ in Defense Strategy Development,” the report was produced by Nathan Freier, a recently retired Army lieutenant colonel who is a professor at the college — the Army’s main training institute for prospective senior officers.

He writes: “To the extent events like this involve organized violence against local, state, and national authorities and exceed the capacity of the former two to restore public order and protect vulnerable populations, DoD [Department of Defense] would be required to fill the gap.”

Freier continues: “Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order … An American government and defense establishment lulled into complacency by a long-secure domestic order would be forced to rapidly divest some or most external security commitments in order to address rapidly expanding human insecurity at home.”

International Monetary Fund Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn warned last week of riots and unrest in global markets if the ongoing financial crisis is not addressed and lower-income households are beset with credit constraints and rising unemployment, the Phoenix Business Journal reported.

Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma and Rep. Brad Sherman of California disclosed that Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson discussed a worst-case scenario as he pushed the Wall Street bailout in September, and said that scenario might even require a declaration of martial law.

The Army College report states: “DoD might be forced by circumstances to put its broad resources at the disposal of civil authorities to contain and reverse violent threats to domestic tranquility. Under the most extreme circumstances, this might include use of military force against hostile groups inside the United States.

“Further, DoD would be, by necessity, an essential enabling hub for the continuity of political authority in a multi-state or nationwide civil conflict or disturbance.”

He concludes this section of the report by observing: “DoD is already challenged by stabilization abroad. Imagine the challenges associated with doing so on a massive scale at home."

As Newsmax reported earlier, the Defense Department has made plans to deploy 20,000 troops nationwide by 2011 to help state and local officials respond to emergencies.

The 130-year-old Posse Comitatus Act restricts the military’s role in domestic law enforcement. But a 1994 Defense Department Directive allows military commanders to take emergency actions in domestic situations to save lives, prevent suffering or mitigate great property damage, according to the Business Journal.

And Gen. Tommy Franks, who led the U.S. military operations to liberate Iraq, said in a 2003 interview that if the U.S. is attacked with a weapon of mass destruction, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government.

Remember Progressive Activists - The Obama Administration Must Make Progress On The Following

As I review "Link TV" and the globally coordinated activism on several key subjects I am wondering what the Obama Administration will do to keep the world "liking us" - just as they started to do on November 4, 2008.

Thus the following issues need to have a course reversal:

  1. Cluster Bomb Ban
  2. Land Mine Ban
  3. Global Warming (Kyoto Treaty) - United States Agrees To Economic Limits
  4. Equal-handed Treatment of Israel and the Palestinians 
  5. Xenophobia Conference - If The UN Convenes The "Racism Conference" once again - the USA must stay within the conference, listen to the attacks and express contrition
  6. Increased Financial Commitments To The United Nations - Adopt a "From those who have To those who need" funding policy for the purposes of fairness
  7. Stand down in the International Monetary Fund, World Bank and World Trade Organization in regards financial policies that are used to destabilize other nations. (Just as what John Perkins said in "Confessions Of An Economic Hitman")

If the United States is to no longer be the "world's bad guy" we will need to have some tangible evidence that fortifies this claim.

Obama Supporters Categorized?

Question About Obama Supporters And Their "Permanent Interests"


As measured in long before we see a policy proposed by the Obama Administration that is so objectionable to the members of the Black community by which the following forces organize to convince CONGRESS (which is the voice of the People) to REJECT whatever policy this might be?

* National Urban League
* N'Cobra
* National Association Of Black Journalists
* National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives
* National Association of African Americans in Human Resources
* National Bar Association
* National Black Chamber of Commerce
* Progressive Black & Journalists (PB&J)
* The National Association of Blacks in Criminal Justice
* AfroSpear / Jack & Jill Politics

What might this policy be which causes so much consternation?

AND.....If this coordinated opposition to a policy NEVER HAPPENS in 4 or 8 years (in that these groups CLAIM to be focused on PERMANENT INTERESTS over PERMANENT FRIENDS) would you see this as strange....ESPECIALLY IF

1) Their Agenda Items Are Not MEASURABLY FIXED in the next 4 years

2) After they spent so much time and MONEY on the Obama campaign and their travels to the Inauguration?

Oh yeah, and

3) On T-Shirts, Obama Plates & Coins

MSNBC Assembles A Panel Of Favorable Economists Who Are Smitten In "Hope" In Economic Recovery Unseen

Amid gloom, signs of hope for economy in 2009; panel says recovery could begin by midyear — if all goes well

The main goal for me during this period of time is to document the surprising change in fortune that certain media outlets will experience after the "CHANGE" which will happen on January 20, 2009.

Where as my debates with certain Internet adversaries have focused on them saying:
  • This is the weakest recovery on record after a recession 
  • Bush needs to create double the jobs that are currently being created

I fully expect them to get a new religion now that a favorable president is in office.  This time they want the economy to succeed so that their guy can look good.  As a result all of their talking points will follow suit.  

One of my focus words for 2009 (and I will document my process later on) is "Delta".   Delta represents the "rate of change" in calculus.  Likewise I intend to add some discipline and quantification around the concept of "change".  Turning this marketing sloagan into an actionable measurement of the effectiveness of certain policies.

Tolerance For Opinions 'After Obama' Shifts The Other Way

Barney Frank and his boy friend are pissed that Rick Warren is giving the inaugural prayer.

AJC: Lawmaker says `no' to Rev. Warren at inauguration

WASHINGTON — The longest-serving openly gay member of Congress said Sunday it was a mistake for President-elect Barack Obama to invite the Rev. Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at his inauguration.

"Mr. Warren compared same-sex couples to incest. I found that deeply offensive and unfair," Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., said in a broadcast interview.

"If he was inviting the Rev. Warren to participate in a forum and to make a speech, that would be a good thing," Frank said. "But being singled out to give the prayer at the inauguration is a high honor. It has traditionally given as a mark of great respect. And, yes, I think it was wrong to single him out for this mark of respect."

Warren, a best-selling author and leader of a Southern California megachurch, is a popular evangelical who stresses the need for action on social issues such as reducing poverty and protecting the environment, alongside traditional theological themes.

But gay rights advocates, who strongly supported Obama during the election, are angry over Warren's backing of a California ballot initiative banning gay marriage. That measure was approved by voters last month.

Although Warren has said that he has nothing personally against gays, he has condemned same-sex marriage.

"I have many gay friends. I've eaten dinner in gay homes. No church has probably done more for people with AIDS than Saddleback Church," he said in a recent interview with BeliefNet. But later in the interview, he compared the "redefinition of marriage" to include gay marriage to legitimizing incest, child abuse, and polygamy.

"Respect My Vote" In Minnesota - Cheat Only If It Benefits My Guy

How do some of you "voting rights" people explain these tales coming out of Minnesota?

For me you show your INTEGRITY when you stand for absolute justice in the voting counting process rather than ONLY protesting when your guy loses because of fraudulent practices.

After Obama: Leftwing Bigotry And Intolerance Alive And Well

CNN: Obama's inaugural choice sparks outrage

During the recent campaign Obama and McCain sat on stage and had a conversation with Pastor Rick Warren. Warren did not throw any jabs at Obama. He did not spew hatred nor does he during his weekly sermons.

Despite all of this the left wing groups are pissed that he has been invited to participate in the inauguration.

What is Rev Warren's crime? 

He disagrees with the left on some issues that they believe that everyone else should agree with them upon.

The word "intolerant" has been reserved to people who can't accept a diversity of views and who use systematic efforts to excluse these varying views.  

Clearly its application needs to be expanded.

Anti-Smoking Groups Place Their HOPES On Obama's Nicotine Patches Working For Him

AJC: Anti-smoking groups hope Obama will be role model

Even more important, Obama keeps trying. "Relapsing is very common," Jorenby says, with a typical smoker making four to six attempts before getting it right. (Healton puts it even higher, at eight to 11 attempts.)

One common reaction to Obama's smoking is that it's a mystifying contradiction to the rest of his personality — to the famous discipline that keeps him working out every single day, and helped him run one of the more successful campaigns in U.S. politics.

Jorenby says such logic is a fallacy. "They're not mutually exclusive," he says of discipline and smoking. For one thing, a cigarette often helps smokers concentrate — one reason it's so hard to stop. "The thought of not being able to think clearly is terrifying to them," he says.

And also, people often ignore the fact that tobacco addiction is a chemical dependency. "This is not simply a bad habit that one uses willpower to stamp out," he says.

At least one observer says we all need to leave Obama alone. In fact, wrote Ron Rosenbaum on recently, our lives may depend on it.

Tongue in cheek, Rosenbaum imagines a day in the winter of 2009 when an international crisis has erupted. "Do you want Barack Obama, the guy who has his finger on our nuclear trigger ... all irritable, his nerves and famously smooth temper on edge?"

"Give Obama a break," writes Rosenbaum, who makes clear he's not advocating cigarettes for others. "A smoking break."

Not trying to start anything AND keeping with the ethos of this blog that "this AIN'T about OBAMA" but is about YOU ALL......I can only imagine that if there was a less favorable president, who is currently ADDICTED to nicotine and then he admitted that he use cocaine in the past - I have the funny feeling that certain operative groups would now be making the case that their adversary has "addictive tendencies" and thus his judgment needs to be scrutinized in this context.

Obama Promises Not To Pat His New HUD Secretary On The Head

Shuan Donovan is Obama's HUD Secretary Designee

President-elect Barack Obama has chosen Shaun Donovan, New York City's housing commissioner, to be his secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

He said HUD is essential in the effort to address the mortgage crisis, which he said "not only shakes the foundation of our economy, but the foundation of the American Dream."

"To stem the rising tide of foreclosures and strengthen our economy, I've asked my economic team to develop a bold plan that will dramatically increase the number of families who can stay in their homes," Obama said. "But this plan will only work with a comprehensive, coordinated federal effort to make it a reality."

Donovan has experience working in business, academia and at HUD during the Clinton administration.

"Trained as an architect, Shaun understands housing down to how homes are designed, built, and wired," Obama said.

"He knows that we can put the dream of owning a home within reach for more families, so long as we're making loans in the right way, and so long as those who buy a home are prepared for the responsibilities of home ownership," Obama said.

President Obama Will Protect The 1st Amendment Rights - Even Of Hatefilled Preachers Violating The Spirt Of The Mission Of Jesus

Wright: Obama made 'bad' choice to distance self, but it's ok

(I had to do a double take. I figured that this was not Maureen Dowd of the NYT writing such a piece.)

President-elect Barack Obama made a "bad decision" by distancing himself from the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his church, Wright said Sunday -- but that's OK.

"He's still my child," Wright said in a sermon in which he expressed pride in Obama's longtime association with Trinity United Church of Christ.


Wright, speaking at Trinity on its 47th anniversary, said he was proud of "the only church that produced the first and only African-American president in the
211-year history of the United States. No other church can say that."

Too bad he didn't mention how proud he was that he could attest that Barack Obama or any of the other people in the church are saved or not.

His talk was spiced with his trademark blend of history lesson, mimicry, singing, and -- depending on your point of view -- insults, or telling it like it is. One object of contempt seemed to be Elisabeth Hasselbeck of ABC's "The View," whom -- while not saying her name -- Wright twice referred to as a "broad," including once as "that dumb broad." Hasselbeck has criticized Wright on "The View."

Do you all remember when Whoopie Goldberg had her thing with Ted Danson several years ago? Whoopie "allowed" Ted to come on stage in Black face and say "Nigger, Nigger, Nigger, Nigger". Correct me if I am wrong - didn't Montell Williams and Tony Braxton who were in the audience GET UP AND WALK OUT to show their offense at Danson using this VILE WORD in their presence and as a joke?

Whoopie Goldberg who was the "vetter of what is 'offensive to Black people' at that moment" saw it as funny and took no offense to.


Where they not offended because he wasn't talking about THEM?.......FROM THE PULPIT! FROM THE PULPIT!! FROM THE PULPIT!!!

At this point does anyone believe that this string of behavior is the FIRST TIME that Rev Jerimiah Wright had ever acted this way in 20 years?

What Would Michelle Obama Have Done if she was sitting in church that Sunday and she heard Rev. Wright - a man of God and of "Social Justice" call another woman a "Dumb Broad" from the pulpit?

  1. Laughed?
  2. Said "Whew I am glad my pastor ain't talking about me"
  3. Said "Honey it's time we find a new church"
  4. Sat there and said NOTHING because this may is "Preaching the word of God as I see it"

"The hatred of the media and the haters in politics may have caused him to distance himself from us, but the love of Christ will never allow me to distance myself from him,'' Wright said of Obama. "I can no more disown him than I can disown any other child of mine who makes [a] bad decision. He made a bad decision, but he's still my child."

I am not sure about YOUR GOD but......"hatred from the pulpit" is a bit more displeasing to My GOD than "hatred by those who don't claim to be 'Fishers Of Men' for God that work in the media.

Wright also compared the detention camp at Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib Prison to the abuses of old colonial powers. "What we doing with a base in Cuba?" he asked. "We just take stuff."

There you go bro.!!! You know how to get the church to look past your own indiscretions. Switch back to the issue of Slavery, Torture and "Social Injustice" as carried out by the United States government. This is the gift that keeps on giving for your flock.

How To Cure The US Recession - Have An Obama Anuguration Every Week In Various Cities Around The Country!

Washington Businesses Boom Ahead Of Historic Inauguration

With record crowds expected to pack the National Mall from end to end, hotels are marketing fantasy inaugural packages ranging from $50,000 to $200,000 replete with chauffeurs, designer duds and gourmet meals.

Then there’s the homeowner in suburban Maryland offering to rent an “inaugural sleeper sofa” for $250 a night. Or the $65-a-night cabins without running water at West Virginia’s Harpers Ferry KOA campground.

“I’m making sure that people fully understand that they have to take a hike to the shower house,” said Dale Brechlin, camp manager.

The inauguration of the 44th president has sparked a flurry of complicated logistical planning by the Presidential Inaugural Committee, the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, the Armed Forces Inaugural Committee, and the District of Columbia, not to mention restaurants, hotels, tuxedo and limousine rentals and other enterprises.

Officials are calculating how many porta-potties to plant on the mall — open from the Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial for the first time during an inauguration — as well as what to do with all the buses bringing visitors to the city. For those arriving by private jet, the National Business Aviation Association has warned of likely “parking challenges” at regional airports.

“You can expect airports to be packed like a Wal-Mart parking lot,” said Dug Garrett, veteran of the air charter business.

Obama will take his oath at noon on Jan. 20, on a platform being built on the west steps of the Capitol. He will deliver his inaugural address, have lunch inside the Capitol and then ride in a 1.5-mile parade down Pennsylvania Avenue to a reviewing stand in front of the White House.

The crowd is expected to far surpass the record 1.5 million estimated turnout for President Lyndon B. Johnson’s 1965 inauguration.

Tickets to the swearing-in have become so hot that they’re being kept in a secret, high-security location.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., leading the Joint Congressional Committee, has introduced legislation to make it a federal crime to scalp or counterfeit inaugural tickets.

Can we have a more perfect storm?
The people who would normally attack "excess in spending" will themselves be at the grand party SPENDING!! Why not take this show on the road? Have Obama Inaurugations in various cities. Have Obama take the Amtrak train from DC to Baltimore, stop off in Biden's Delaware, Philadelphia, Camden, Newark. Have a big blowout in New York City. Move on to Hartford, and then Boston!

Think about the billion dollar effect that this series of inaugurations would have. It would be like marriage recommitment ceremonies, done in serial fashion. Some celebrities would spend money as they worked to attend all of them. Ebony Magazine could have a commemorative edition for each of these cities.

We need to put aside concerns about practicality and focus on what is best for the economy AND the positive motivations of the American people.

Personally suggestion - spike the punch with "Sam-E". This little supplement serves to keep my mood perky.

Some Black Leftist Blogs Remaining Consistent - Seek To Draw Obama Leftward

Some Black Leftist Blogs Remaining Consistent - Seek To Draw Obama Leftward

I have always made the distinction between the "Amy Goodwin" left and the Keith Olberman/Bill Mahr/ Jon Stewart Left. Where as the later are opportunists and don't believe what they say (in my opinion) the former are committed to what they believe and they live it. While I don't agree with them - I have to give them respect for their consistency.

The key distinction is between the left who are Democrats and the left who are committed leftists. The Democrats want their party to win and have a quest for power.

With this in mind I have to give grudging acknowledgement to the people at "Black Agenda Report". They have kept their scrutiny of Obama consistent. As I say in the title - Obama is as "right" as he is "left". This means - they agree with him as long as he maintains fidelity to their lefts perspectives. Obama, as with any other Progressive politicians doesn't have to be effective or actually deliver the promised benefits of his policies. He only needs to execute progressive-fundamentalist policies and thus he will be praised for his ATTEMPTS and INTENTIONS. This is all they ever ask for. Any abject failures of these policies will be passed off as evidence that an immovable object simply takes a bit more time and energy to move. They will go back for more later on, continuing their support as long as he stays loyal to them.

Obama "Steps In It" with B.A.R. with his selection of Gates as Defense Secretary

Susan Rice Is Bad News For Africa

In the cosmic black hole of Black Progressive politics - will we see some time in the future Black Democratic-Fundamentalists who are Obama loyalists launch an attack on the Black Extremist Progressive-Fundamentalists who stand to the left of them for attacking Obama just as the Obama camp attacked the Black Democratic loyalists who supported Hillary Clinton in the Black General election? (Sorry - I meant the Democratic Primary) This battle is all about fidelity to the progressive movement versus loyalty to the Democratic party which at times is more pragmatic in their ways.

Me personally - I would like to see both camps recommit to their claims to be in support of reform and advancement WITHIN THE BLACK COMMUNITY. In doing so, at some point - they must be forced to acknowledge that they largely run things in our communities and yet our position has eroded or stagnated while under their rule. It is my view that Progressivism itself must be inspected to determine if it can move past its protestations and actually GOVERN, delivering the promised benefits to the aggrieved masses that got them into power in the first place.

In the mean time sites like Black Agenda Report will never go out of business because they will always look past the places where their ideology is ensconced and instead operate as mercenaries - going to put the next fire out in the name of progressivism, never having to remain affixed to the love child it crated.

Will Obama's Smoking Draw Black People To Smoke?

Listen people.  I understand the sensitivity of this issue.  I recall several decades ago as a 4th grader walking past the teacher's lounge and, perish the teacher was smoking!!
I learned that day that she was human.  At that young age you don't believe that these teachers have a personal life or some personal flaws as part of their humanity.  Instead in their authoritative role - they are Gods!

During this time smoking inside of a public building was permissible.  But hell - my teacher was not the president!  Just as former first lady Hillary Clinton made the White House a "no smoking zone" Obama can reverse that rule if he chooses.  He is not just the president - he is the CHANGE PRESIDENT!!!  Change the rules to fit your habits President Obama.  Show people that you are indeed human.  (They have already accepted your other little white powder habit from your past - why would they treat this one any differently?)

Self thread jack:  Now that I think back to my 4th grade experience I just recalled jousting with a classmate named Oswald using a yard stick.  I broke his yard stick and this same teacher sent a note home to my parents about what I did.  When I showed my mother she gave me $1.50 to replace it.  When my mother told my father - I got a beating for it.  I also recall that Oswald's mother gave him the money yet he did not get a beating for it.  I thought that it was not fair that he got in less trouble than I did over the same indicent.  This incident showed me that the rules that I have to abide by in school are different than the rules that my classmates have to abide by EVEN IF their actions are in line with the standards of the school's dicipline code.  My rules were made higher per my parent's enforcement - something that is missing today in many people.  

In the back of my mind today - I sometimes discipline my son for the principle of him misbehaving in school and his mother and I receiving a note home from the teacher.   At times that one action is not the offense that triggers  the beating, in the context of the  aggregation of his behavior he needs to have some pursuasion to take a different course.

Will Obama Supporters Scale Back Their Inauguration Parties In Light Of The State Of The Economy?

Will Obama Supporters Scale Back Their Inauguration Parties In Light Of The State Of The Economy?

Oh the Progressive! Maintainer of the consciousness of the society. Able to identify excessive consumption and money that COULD HAVE BEEN directed toward a better end. "Don't they know that people are hungry all the while they party the night away?"  He is the first to condemn such excess..........unless he is invited to the party.  Then the party takes on a new meaaning.  "We are christening the dawn of a new era!  Why shouldn't we kick off the chains of our depression and celebrate this new day with happiness that will not subside?"

Will we hear demands that the January 20, 2009 Inaugural events be tapered back due to the tremendous job loss and tenuous state of the economy? Don't bet on it.

The journalists who will likely make this charge will no doubt be eating the cake from the parties and will bring some home for the poor people to eat.

Anti-Obama Conspiracy Theories After-Obama

Please - PLEASE GIVE IT UP on this Birth Certificate thing.


There are so many other legitimate points to hit this man upon.

Obama Messiah Blog

Is Barack Obama the Messiah?

"... a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany ... and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama" - Barack Obama Lebanon, New Hampshire.
January 7, 2008.

This appears to be a good web site to track all of the idol worship that is going on at present.

Obama - "Economy Going To Get Worse Before It Gets Better" - Translation "Change Is A Bit More Complicated Than When It Was A Campaign Slogan"


"The economy is going to get worse before it gets better," he said twice in the early moments of the interview, taped Saturday in Chicago.

The president-elect announced on Saturday he would call for the most massive spending on public works since the creation of the interstate highway system a half-century ago. In a word of caution to powerful lawmakers, he said the first priority would be "shovel-ready" projects — those that could create jobs rights away.

"The days of just pork coming out of Congress as a strategy those days are over," he added.

Obama said repeatedly that his economic advisers are at work on an economic aid package, but he has largely stayed out of the public debate over bailout aid to the Detroit automakers. Congress and the Bush administration are at work on a plan for roughly $15 billion for General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler LLC. Congressional leader hope to pass the measure this week.

Obama suggested he would support such a plan, so long as it was accompanied by conditions to "keep the automakers' feet to the fire in making the changes that are necessary" for longer-term survival. He also indicated he did not believe bankruptcy is an acceptable course of action for any of the companies.

I recall certain prognosticators attacking the post-recession recovery in 2003-2004 as being anemic, failing to create the number of jobs that were seen after the last few recessions. (1992-93, etc). I hope that these same individuals will scrutinize the Obama Administration just the same.

Obama has promised that 2.5 million new jobs will be created based on his policies. I can only imagine the differences in the tone of their coverage between if he falls short of this or if the amount exceeds what is promised. The former will be one of defensiveness and understanding. The later will be a tone in which "Change" was delivered and then some!

Before Obama - Opposition To More Concrete For Roads By Environmentalists - After Obama These Roads Mean Jobs

Obama banking on large-scale public works project

CHICAGO — President-elect Barack Obama said Saturday that he wants to revive the economy and create jobs by upgrading roads, schools and energy efficiency in a public-works program whose scale has been unseen since construction of the interstate highway system in the 1950s.

He offered no price estimate for the grand plan, how the money might be divided or the effect on the country's financial health at a time of burgeoning deficits.

The ideas were outlined in the weekly radio address the day after the government reported that employers cut 533,000 jobs in November, the most in 34 years. They are part of a vision for a massive economy recovery plan Obama wants Congress to pass and have waiting on his desk when he takes office Jan. 20.

The president-elect's address never once used the word "spend," relying instead on "invest" or "investments," and pledging wise stewardship of taxpayer money in upgrading roads and schools, and making public buildings more energy-efficient.

Dear President Obama:

How long does it take for a road project to go from planning, to land acquisition, to design, to contracting, to land prep, to actual construction?

Where I live the Environmental lobby stands strongly against the addition of more roads. More roads mean more cars and more sprawl in their view. Possibly you can use your positive influence upon them to make them drop their lawsuits and go along for the good of the nation?

Tell these people who supported you that they are "cynics" if they stand in the way of your plans. This tactic hadn't worked with other politicians but they were not "That One".

Obama Trinkets

Prediction - Leftist Ted Rall Is Going To Be Attacked If He Keeps This Up Against Obama

Obama Education Secretary: History Of Success Or Chicago Public Schools?

Howard Fineman: Will Obama move beyond brand names, and pick from the field?

Inez Moore Tenenbaum is a little slip of a lady, with porcelain skin and a smile as sweet as ice tea on a sunny Southern porch.

But looks are deceiving. She has a blowtorch will to win and more organizational drive than almost anyone else in her home state of South Carolina, where she served as a very successful—and very popular—elected superintendent of education from 1999 to 2007.
