Do You Still Believe Obama Wants to Stimulate the Ecomony

Nothing about the 'stimulus plan' was designed to stimulate the economy; just the opposite, it is designed to further strangle the economy, yet people seem to patiently be waiting for it begin working. It seems the liberal dumbing down of the schools for decades has really worked well.

Not content with the damage already done, Obama and his criminal, liberal gang in Congress are on the verge of dealing their death blow to the economy with the Waxman-Markey climate change legislation passed by the House.

Either these people are beyond stupid or they are purposely creating a crisis of gigantic proportions. I don't think they are quite that stupid so you have to ask why they want to inflict such damage on the country and it's people. As Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said "Don't let a crisis go to waste". I think they used the initial crisis as a cover for initiating destructive policies disguised as remedies and are working for a complete breakdown of the country with a centralized, all powerful socialist government take over.

They may be using a modified version of the Cloward-Piven Strategy as described by The American Thinker (hat tip to my friend JJ):

"For those who do not know, the strategy was developed in the late 1960s by two sociologists at Columbia. In a nutshell it seeks to "hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse".

It was implemented in NYC where activists on the left lobbied for new social programs then worked to fill the rosters. By the early 1970s there was one person on welfare for every two working in NYC. This nearly resulted in NYC declaring bankruptcy in 1975, averted only by a federal emergency loan."

eJournal: Breaking News: Manufacturing & Technology eJournal Poll Shows Clean Energy Act Could Force Nearly 20 Percent of Manufacturers to Close

The cap-and-trade based system, pushed by the Obama administration and passed by the U.S. House, could cause energy costs to skyrocket and fuel more unemployment

Critics of the Waxman-Markey climate change legislation that narrowly passed the U.S. House of Representatives say energy costs will skyrocket if the bill - as it stands now - becomes law. Manufacturing & Technology eJournal asked readers what actions they were most likely take at their company to offset the inevitable increases in energy costs.


*More than 17 percent of those who answered said they would have to shut down their business because there is no way they could handle the kinds of increases being predicted.

The unscientific poll taken of Manufacturing & Technology eJournal readers from June 28th through July 1st drew 943 responses.


*Would raise the price of my product or service to customers (22 percent);

*A combination of price increases, personnel cuts and reductions in pay and benefits (20 percent);

*Switch to a 4-day workweek (15 percent);

*Layoff workers (14.5 percent).

*Only nine percent said they would do their best to absorb the energy costs increases without making any changes.

In a statement to Manufacturing & Technology eJournal, U.S. Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) said he would fight the legislation in the Senate.

"The Cap and Trade Bill that passed the House is a jobs killer bill plain and simple,' Bunning said. "The legislation is essentially an energy tax hike on small businesses, and will raise electricity costs in Kentucky ninety percent by the year 2035. President Obama's pledge to not raise taxes on people making less than $250,000 a year is thrown out the window with his support of this tax-raising legislation.'

Other U.S. Senators from Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Michigan have been asked to comment on the poll and if they planned to support or fight the legislation when it comes before the Senate. Look for their responses soon.
