http://www.objectobot.com/?p=183 Makes fun off Paul Krugman and John Maynard Keynes and the economic fallacies that they support. Quick funny animation that pretty much explains how the stimulus works. This is an animation of a internet joke that goes like this. Keynes and Krugman are walking down the street and see dog droppings. Keynes says to Krugman: "I'll pay you $20,000 to eat those." Krugman thinks about it, decides he really wants a new car, and eats the droppings. They continue walking, then Krugman sees some other dog's droppings up ahead and says to Keynes: "Same deal: I'll pay you $20,000 to eat that." Keynes didn't expect Krugman to take him up on his bet earlier, and he really needs the money, so he agrees. Then Krugman says to Keynes: "We both have the same amount of money as before, but we both ate poop." Keynes replies: "Yeah, but there was $40,000 in stimulus to the national GDP."

The Stench of Truth (16) A stimulus package for the flagging economy is like putting a band-aid on your severed arm. No one wants to talk about what really needs to be done. The FED will continue to keep rates low for now to prevent a recession (that we're already in). The "stimulus" is a joke. Only one more year of this administration barring another 9/11, or martial law and canceled elections. Ron Paul number two in Nevada! He'll still be ignored, sadly. I hope that at least his policies will have some impact on a future administration.

"Some of the reactionary economists urged that we should allow the liquidation to take its course until we had found bottom.... We determined that we would not follow the advice of the bitter-end liquidationists and see the whole body of debtors of the United States brought to bankruptcy and the savings of our people brought to destruction...Instead we met the situation with proposals to private business and to Congress of the most gigantic program of economic defense and counterattack ever evolved in the history of the Republic." -Hoover (Wikipedia) Hoover confronted a world of political possibilities when he returned home in 1919. Democratic Party leaders looked on him as a potential candidate for President, and President Wilson privately preferred Hoover as his successor. "There could not be a finer one," asserted Franklin D. Roosevelt, then a rising star from New York. Hoover briefly considered becoming a Democrat, but he believed that 1920 would be a Republican year. A self-described progressive and reformer, Hoover saw the presidency as a vehicle for improving the conditions of all Americans by encouraging public-private cooperation—what he termed "volunterism". Long before he had entered politics, he had denounced laissez-faire thinking. At the outset of the Depression, Hoover claims in his memoirs that he rejected Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon's suggested "leave-it-alone" approach, and called many business leaders to Washington to urge them not to lay off workers or cut wages. Congress, desperate to increase federal revenue, enacted the Revenue Act of 1932, which was the largest peacetime tax increase in history. The Act increased taxes across the board, so that top earners were taxed at 63% on their net income. The 1932 Act also increased the tax on the net income of corporations from 12% to 13.75%. The final attempt of the Hoover Administration to rescue the economy occurred in 1932 with the passage of the Emergency Relief and Construction Act, which authorized funds for public works programs and the creation of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation (RFC). The RFC's initial goal was to provide government-secured loans to financial institutions, railroads and farmers. The RFC had minimal impact at the time, but was adopted by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and greatly expanded as part of his New Deal. Even so, New Dealer Rexford Tugwell later remarked that although no one would say so at the time, "practically the whole New Deal was extrapolated from programs that Hoover started." "For three long years," Roosevelt said in accepting his party's nomination, "I have been going up and down this country preaching that government . . . costs too much. I shall not stop that preaching." FDR campaigned in 1932 on a platform of slashing the size and cost of government, and of ending the "reckless and extravagant" spending of Herbert Hoover. Stop that preaching he didn't. He accused Hoover of presiding over "the greatest spending administration in peacetime in all our history . . . an administration that has piled bureau on bureau, commission on commission." He slammed the Republican's record of "reckless and extravagant" spending, and of thinking "that we ought to center control of everything in Washington as rapidly as possible." He mocked those who thought "a huge expenditure of public funds" was the best way to grow the economy of succumbing "to the illusions of economic magic." His running mate, Texas Congressman John Nance Garner, even warned that Hoover was "leading the country down the path of socialism." - Jeff Jacoby "Unemployment Relief" Recorded October 18, 1931 Full speech at The Authentic History Center Transcript at: http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/?pid=22855#axzz1wcDOCsEQ

My other videos are much better. This was my 1st one. I know I sound horrible in this video, so no need to be mean and rude and tell me how bad I sound. That's like telling a smoker they need to quit smoking because they stink. Or telling a fat person they are fat. Or an ugly person they're ugly. They already know it without you telling them. Google this: CNBC Analyst: Global Bank, Global Currency Within 15 Years I failed to mention the details of the stimulus plan that will impact hundreds and thousands (perhaps millions?) of elderly. And the fact that this bill will REQUIRE doctors to report and electronically track your medical treatments per a federal system. The Federal Council is modeled after a U.K. board discussed in Daschle's book, "Critical: What We Can Do About the Health-Care Crisis". This board approves or rejects treatments using a formula that divides the cost of the treatment by the number of years the patient is likely to benefit. Treatments for younger patients are more often approved than treatments for diseases that affect the elderly, such as osteoporosis. Medicare now pays for treatments deemed safe and effective. The stimulus bill would change that and apply a cost- effectiveness standard set by the Federal Council (464). In 2006, a U.K. health board decreed that elderly patients with macular degeneration had to wait until they went blind in one eye before they could get a costly new drug to save the other eye. It took almost three years of public protests before the board reversed its decision. The liberals in Congress just won't stop. Now we have learned they are meeting in secret. Ultra liberals in Congress are continuing to pull strings behind the scenes to give billions of dollars in taxpayer money to ACORN. They are working overtime to shove through billions and billions of dollars in wasteful spending to long term liberal special interest projects. They are doing this all under the continued guise of the stimulus package. The price tag is still astonishing. $789 billion might be less than the Senates $838 billion, but its massively more than the $300 billion this bill originally was proposed at, and still tops a trillion dollars when interest is included. There's still $50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts, $600 million to buy cars for government workers, $88 million for ATV and bike trails and so much more waste. And, go to www.StimulusWatch.org to see the wish list of earmarks for cities and counties in your area. It will blow your mind. On January 11, Speaker Pelosi publicly pledged "no pork" when being interviewed by Wolf Blitzer. She promptly broke that pledge when it was convenient to do so. The trillion dollar stimulus bill pushed by Speaker Pelosi and passed overwhelmingly by the House has more pork spending than any bill in history! In fact, the bill (H.R.1) contains so much pork spending that Speaker Pelosi included $227 million simply for oversight of the pork barrel projects included in her stimulus bill. (Page 11 of the stimulus bill.)

The Congressman also appeared on MSNBC this morning to discuss the same issue. One commentator suggested that Paul's analysis was misguided because "The house is already on fire" and something must be done to put it out. "You are correct, the house is on fire," Paul fired back, "and you think you're putting water on it, but I think you are pouring kerosene on it." he added. "We got into this mess by spending too much, borrowing too much and inflating too much. Government was too big and we had too many regulations. We had rejected the market economy for decades, we have rejected the notion of sound money for decades, and we got into a mess this way. So what is the proposal? Spend more money, borrow more money, print more money, regulate more, it makes no sense whatsoever." Paul asserted. The Congressman suggested that a more sound approach to the crisis would be to abolish income tax and business tax to get Americans spending, whilst simultaneously cutting overseas spending to cover revenue losses. "But the problem is no one wants to cut the American Empire," Paul explained. "Even Obama's administration wants to increase spending overseas and increase military spending. As long as you want to run the world empire at a trillion dollars a year, believe me you cannot solve this problem." he added.
