Stimulating talk

A Web site done by the Democratic National Committee lists the estimated benefits by state in terms of jobs created of the economic stimulus plan on the table in Washington.

Vermont would save or create 7,170 jobs by the end of 2010, according to the site. The plan would have a -1.8 percent influence on our unemployment rate, they say.

I'm not entirely sure how they make that estimate because it's going to depend on how the states use the money they have coming.

The site also talks about the meeting between President Barack Obama and Gov. Jim Douglas. Obama is quoted as saying:

"People are being laid off, and that means that governors like Jim are
having to not only deal with declining revenue, but increased social services to
provide support for people who are unemployed as they're seeking work."

Maybe Obama has a cabinet job lined up for Douglas. Seems like every dimocrat turning up is either a tax cheat or "pay-to-play" sleeze.
 
Thanks JW.
 
Daschle has just asked to have his name removed from consideration for HHS appointment.
 
Jim Douglas, Secretary of Ribbon Cutting and Self Congratulation.
 
Just how many of the 7,100 plus jobs are "sustainable" and how many are would be for one-time employment?
 
I'm sure this would be another WPA which created "make-work" jobs during the depression. Loyal left-wingers would get "supervisory" positions (meaning they sit around coffee shops all day) and occasionally check up on how a job is going (5 or 6 unemployables leaning on shovels digging a single hole). Sounds like the make-work OCCSA of the 70's which really never did ANYTHING except things like spend $500 to produce a cord of firewood to sell for $50. At least the old CCC built some remaining structures! Better to give the stimulus money to small businesses and let THEM produce something!
 
Obama's stimulus is just a pay back for all the $millions the union gave him during the campaign.
So far, ALL of the jobs created with this stimulus are union jobs-Roads, bridges and schools. These jobs are short lived then what???
How long to get permits for any of these projects?? 3 years-10 years or maybe another beltline- 20+ years.
Let's give a tax holiday to all workers for 6 months and the stimulus would start immediately.
 
Sadly, tax reduction is the LAST thing the liberals want. Tax dollars to them is like blood to a mosquito.
 
Doogie wants Obama to bail him out in hopes that we won't notice just what an incompetent hack he's been.

That ship already sailed, schmuck. It's gonna be a long last two years for doogie and his disciples.

At least bubbakis, nekkie boy and the rest of nameless nitwit nation can hitch their wagon to david duke's star now that he, flush, palin and the plumber are gonna take all the real gops and start their own coalition of crazy clueless caucasian cretins party.

Best of luck, schmucks.

Always a pleasure. Always a piece of cake.
 
Douglas will go - Markowitz will take him down!
 
Hey Terri,

Smells like your pet troll coop has a full diaper again. The way he's squirming might mean he's got a bad rash under there too.

Be a good little stooge and take care of it for him OK?

Remember you're only here for the greater glory of JWCoop and you are more expendable to the Paper than he is.
 
"Loyal left-wingers would get "supervisory" positions (meaning they sit around coffee shops all day)"

Does that mean Pollina would get a supervisory position?
 
"Doogie wants Obama to bail him out in hopes that we won't notice just what an incompetent hack he's been."

The incompetent hack who's beaten the Democrat in four straight elections?

Or are you saying that the voters of Vermont are incompetent also?
 
Not sure what Douglas has had to do with the problems that have landed Vermont in it's current mess - namely, the disappearance of jobs and qualified workers to other states due to the liberal's permit reform psychosis and their mania for taxes. Douglas seems helpless, faced with the fact that he has to deal with the collection of radicals, misfits, and just plain idiots that call themselves a legislative body.
 
bubba....

"Not sure what Douglas has had to do with the problems that have landed Vermont in it's current mess - namely, the disappearance of jobs and qualified workers to other states due to the liberal's permit reform psychosis and their mania for taxes.

"Douglas seems helpless...

Well, he is incompetent, clueless and over-matched That's why he keeps vetoing everything the Dems send him to try and fix the place and begging Obama to bail his sorry butt out in hopes that Vermont won't come to terms with the fact that doogie's been the problem all along and losin' doogie will be the solution.

Face it, little nameless-nitwit fella, Vermont was fine when Howard Dean left doogie the keys to the Pavilion and the pathetic putz took the wheel, bubbakis. We've been goin' to hell in a hand basket ever since.

Doogie and the obstructionist gop trash in the House continue to be the problem.

Take out the pavilion trash and Vermont will be restored to its former glory.

Always a pleasure.

Nah, not entirely. Vermont never went for shrub, we elected and reelected a topnotch Congressional Delegation and Vermonters keep electing larger and larger Dem legislative majorities to keep an eye on doggie, so just the fools who voted for doogie after going big for Obama are the problem.

The scum vote is the scum vote. You clueless cretins lack the capacity to form intent and are a walkin', talkin' diminished capacity defense waitin' to happen.

Always a pleasure.
 
Markowitz for Governor
Racine for Lt Gov

Then how come your boy, doogie, was in the Oval Office beggin' Obama to bail his incompetent gop-trash ass out, nekwit?

Always a pleasure.
 
"so just the fools who voted for doogie after going big for Obama are the problem"

Oh, so 50% of the Vermont electorate is "the problem?"

You are truly and profoundly an idiot.
 
Cure the problem - elect Markowitz.
 
Terri, when you get rid of jw, please also get rid of the pathetic Markowitz-bot.
 
Anonymous....

"Terri, when you get rid of jw, please also get rid of the pathetic Markowitz-bot."

Or, in the alternative, Terri, you could just lose the anonymous trash posters and limit access to those with enough sand to sign their stuff.

That's gonna make it awful lonely around here, but I'll get over it.
 
If you had a life outside your basement and the Internet and your computer monitor, you wouldn't be lonely.

"If you had a life outside your basement and the Internet and your computer monitor, you wouldn't be lonely."

Sing it, Elanor Rigby.

Gee, that must be rough, little nameless-nitwit fella. It must really suck to be ignorant anonymous trash with bupkis tasked with the chore of greetin' me with the same psychotic slop ten or twelve times when I sign on and sign off and all points in between.

Apart from that, all you and your anonymous imaginary friends in nameless nitwit nation ever do is tell the Freeps Folks how much you adore them and admire their work.

Ya really oughta see somebody about that.

Then again, as long as you're here, ya can't be causin' trouble anywhere else so it's kind of comforting that way.

Always a pleasure.
 
jw,

You're dumb, you're scum, and you've got bupkis.

Thanks for clearin' that up, fat, unemployed, unemployable, on-the-dole, never-leave-the-house fella.

what job did you apply for today? Last week? Last month? Last year?

That's what I thought. None.

When did you leave you're house last?

That's what I thought.

Thanks for clearin' that up, fat, unemployed, unemployable, on-the-dole, never-leave-the-house pathetic fella.
 
But, Mr. Douglas has taken three raises in the last three years so the state can't be that bad off?

In other words, doogie's just another incompetent gop-trash hack who thinks he should be compensated like a Wall Street CEO by Vermont Taxpayers for running government into the ground like an investment bank.

I'd like to see a breakdown of the pavilion's redecorating expenditures over the past six years. Triple it along with his mileage expenditures and per diem and stick doogie with the tab.

Vermont's suffered long enough at his incompetent hands.
